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.

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.

    • another project lower round draft pick with a lot of dropped passes, was in the low rounds for a reason, fast but couldnt catch the ball
    • It took me a while getting used to foreign slang, sarcasm, and other stuff, but it is fun.    I still watch a lot of UK, Irish, and other TV programming. I prefer their dramas and noirs to most of US standard programming. 
    • It's a risk benefit decision. Do you want a QB that raises the level of your WRs and removes stress form your D, or a QB that lowers the level of your WRs and adds stress to your OL (time to throw) and requires your D to play perfect.....  
    • If we win next week and Houston loses, we would once again be in the lead in the South, as crazy as that sounds. Hypothetically, let’s say we win and the cows lose In order of tiebreakers: 1. Record- 7-5 v 7-5, next tiebreaker 2. Head to Head- 1-1 v 1-1, next tiebreaker 3. Division Record- 4-1 (I) v 3-1 (H) Well hot damn, somehow we may escape this impending doom. There’s my glimmer of hope for this season I’ve been searching for    
    • Expecting JB to perform like Luck is just plain silly.  There is a huge difference talent wise between the two.  2017s team was garbage.  2018 team developed nicely and Luck took advantage with TY, Inman a veteran who was signed off the street, and Ebron who had a great year.  This year it's TY and that's it and he's missed three games and played hurt last night.  Everyone else is nothing special due to the injuries.  No real weapons for JB.  Plain and simple.
