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.

    • Since Vinny's knee is basically shot for the 2019 season this is a great chance for Chris Ballard to get a good look at McLaughling as possibly the Colts starting kicker beyond 2019. Either way, the Colts will move on from Vinatieri no matter what he decides to go beyond 2019. Place him on IR and see what you have from McLaughing. Worst case scenario you sign or draft another Kicker to be your guy.
    • I don’t care if this team had Tyreek Hill and Deandre Hopkins, Brissett would still stand in the pocket for five seconds and then dump it off to Doyle in the flat. The guy is not the answer, and a bunch of cherry picked stats about his ‘efficiency’ is not going to change that. 
    • He was signed off the street by the Niners. But he was a "non-vested" player, which means he doesn't have enough years of service to reach unrestricted free agency. So whatever team he's on would have his exclusive rights for 2020 and 2021, whether he was claimed on waivers or signed as a free agent. Then he can be a restricted free agent in 2022.   His contract technically expires at the end of the 2019 league year, but the Colts can tender him and effectively extend his rookie contract, one year at a time, until 2023. (And at that point, they could franchise tag him, assuming that provision still exists in the new CBA.)   As a UDFA, the CBA allows him to be signed to a veteran extension after two years of service; for drafted players, it's three years. Until then, his contract is based on the rookie wage scale, which was determined by the CBA.   A recent case study for this is Kenny Moore. He signed with the Patriots as a UDFA in 2017, then was waived at cut down, and the Colts claimed him. After 2018, he had two years of service, so he was eligible to sign a veteran extension, which is what he did in the 2019 offseason. If he had not agreed to an extension, the Colts could have tendered him as an ERFA for 2019, and then as an RFA for 2020.
    • RG3 would be available also
    • IF Ballard and Reich still think JB is the answer at this point, then we need to start thinking about who is running what at Colt world HQs.
