Nice picks for the Colts. I love that they drafted OL again. You can't have enough OL. Great job Ballard!

WOW are we competing with the browns for the worst second round? Both absolute reaches.

 

Williams and brown are both better guards. Tons of better options at D.

I love it eventhough it wasn't what I expected. Leonard is Good. Smith is a monster! Protect #12!

Guessing Landry has medical concerns. Still surprised we didn’t get Jackson there.

I have both players rated as 2nd rounders. Darius Leonard is a beast and I liked Braden Smith just as much as Will Hernandez. 

 

I don't understand why Josh Jackson is falling so far down the board though. I kind of understand Harold Landry if it's due to health concerns. He didn't play that well last year and people kept saying to look at his 2016 tape... if he's not healthy he will continue to play at his 2017 level.

Braden Smith....can he play RT?

He's 6.6 315.  Probably if he has the feet.

Who did Colts fans want?

Josh Jackson I think....I think some want Landry for pass rush as well and maybe Guice.

I really hope Ballard is a genius among a bunch of *s but you have to think you could have traded back to get both these guys

Who we got.  I thought when Ballard was talking about starting Gs in the 2nd, I figured he was talking about Smith.  But I thought we'd get him at 49.  Probably the run on Gs forced his hand early.

You can't have enough OL. And draft them early. Perhaps Connor Williams may have been better there.

That’s my concern...his movement...seems a plug n play on right side.

Just checked his NFL Draft profile. Said to have slow feet and is a guard all the way.

If Austin Corbett went first in the second round, than anybody can go anywhere. I think the team has more knowledge than we do about where people are expected to go.

LANCE ZIERLEIN AT NFL.com on Darius Leonard

 

Long and twitchy with athletic ability and straight-line speed that should light up the combine. Leonard has packed on the pounds since hitting campus, but it hasn't compromised his play speed as he has posted dominant production throughout. He lacks play strength and there are times you want to see more nasty in his field demeanor, but he has the traits and talent to become a good, three-down linebacker who can play 3-4 inside backer or 4-3 WILL.

Can’t afford anymore lineman. We need starting corner, rb, and wr still.

Guys we can't rely on Jack Mewhort to stay healthy so we just needed to take the best offensive lineman available. I think Connor Williams and Brian O'Neil were better personally, but Braden Smith is in the same range.

I dont know crap about Leonard but Smith is a beast and I'm very glad to have an upgrade at both guard spots I'd love to grab a RT later as well

Corbett is solid.  I swear social media is a herd driven parrotfest.

    • Had Funchess been practing? I thought he had to practice for two weeks before being able to come back?
    • Oh you were right on that one.  I still won, but I missed out on having highest score of the week by .32 points.  Our league pays out for highest weekly scores. 
    • I think there's a danger with any position of getting enamoured with the 40 time, I'd put 3 cone over it certainly. However, as always never go by just one metric, and never put metrics over film.    For all that was written about him being a below average athlete, if you compare  him to some of the 'good' SS's in the league he matches up pretty well:   Willis 4.55s (40)/7.15s (3 Cone) Collins 4.53s (40)/7.53s (3 Cone) Chancellor 4.69s (40)/7.36s (3 Cone) Jones  4.51s (40)/7.43s (3 Cone)  Adams  4.56s (40)/6.96s (3 Cone)    etc etc... 
    • CeeDee Lamb would be the dream pick imo. Reminds me a lot of Hopkins/Thomas, good size, great route runner and hands. Means he could take on a high volume of targets in the short/intermediate range, something I think Frank Reich badly needs (that's why he was high on signing Funchess). Put him on the boundary opposite Hilton and Campbell in the slot and we have serious options. Not as high on Ruggs when we already have Hilton.   I like Mack as a lead back, but not 25 carries a game. I would prefer a legit RB2 to take some of that load off him, preferably a RB to compliments his game, so a heavier, more physical, north/south RB. This draft has options in the mid round.
    • Here's where I think Kelly 'fans' are distressed. To your point we don't know Kelly...fair.  So what do we know.  We know he can run, dude's fast.  We know he has a strong arm, like that.  We know he'll throw downfield and into tight windows, good!  We know he will stand in the pocket, check. We know he has the stuff to go into Alabama with an Ole Miss team and beat em, that no small thing. We also know he has off-field issues maybe he's grown up, don't know but we hear good things from Frank.  So to someone like me, I like what I see and like what I hear...Rally confused.   Here's what we know about Hoyer, he has none of those physical attributes but he's good in the QB room.  Ok, well, I'm good in QB room but you wouldn't want me under center.  There's an obvious hesitation here on the part of Frank and/or Chris to make Kelly a part of the permanent roster, they will likely cut him again and hope he clears waivers over Hoyer, that to me is absolutely stunning.  Either, Kelly is an off the field nightmare we shouldn't be investing in OR he should be at worst QB2. Hoyer is simply not good, we can get his level of performance literally anywhere, he's the prototypical failed backup and those are readily available on the cheap. I wouldn't understand keeping him over a contract when he weakens the team relative to someone like Kelly on game day.  So to a previous posters comment, why is Kelly here?  If he is such an integrity issue it's not our job to make a man out of him while he occupies a spot.  If he's is good enough physically, which he is, and he's on this roster, which he is, he should stay up and get some first team reps, as all back ups should and see how matures.  It starting to feel like some ego at play here.  All in all, our leadership was ill-prepared to deal with Brissett going down and choked this week in prep.  It's my hope we dump Hoyer who is useless and keep Kelly at QB2, I don't think that will happen.  My 2+ cents.
