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.

    • they are in the playoff hunt, but not many people think they will win a super bowl.  most of the top teams have really good QBs
    • What I'm getting at, though, is that regardless of his circumstances, it's possible to evaluate a QB on the basis of his performance, abilities, traits, and perceived potential to improve. That's my viewpoint.   Of course, the rougher the circumstances and the greater the number of variables, the more complicated the evaluation becomes. But while the receivers haven't been great, we can still look at JB and see what he does well and what he doesn't do well, we can reach reasonable conclusions about why he excels or struggles in certain areas, and we can project whether he can reasonably improve and become a player worthy of an investment of time and money, and worthy of building around. Sure, it's somewhat complicated, but it's not all that difficult, IMO.   What the Colts do at QB in the offseason will depend, to a large degree, on their evaluation of JB. I am confident that they will not say 'well, JB had a rough set of circumstances, let's wait and see what he does next year.' If they strongly feel that he's good enough to build around, that will affect how seriously they pursue other options at the position. But if they aren't sold on him, I don't think they'll just say 'let's give him another year, let's give him another year.' 
    • It would be wild though if Belichick traded Brady for a 1st, 2nd and 3rd, if a team is willing to pony that up. I wouldn't put anything past Belichick.
    • You didn't watch the game but you know what led to the loss?  Wow, that is pretty amazing.
    • Do you mean like how you, and the rest of the Myles fan club, want to give Myles Turner more time to develop after the 4, roughly average, years he's had?
