Poor Perspective guys, we took our #3 and got Nelson and 3 2nd Round picks you are crazy if you don't think that is outstanding value.

Wow.  Last year CB picks an overrated safety, now this year an overrated G.  Ballard is worse than Grigson.

Do you ever get tired of being wrong?

Mewhort cant stay healthy. I cant wait to see Smith, Kelly, and Nelson protecting middle. AC still LT. Mayock almost came out of his chair and said Luck may not be touched next season :thmup:

We are still suspect at Right Tackle.  But our line appears to have gotten worlds better than what it was last year.

All of the draft analysts had these guys way down their boards, certainly not at the top of the 2nd round. If anyone should be embarrassed it’s fans who come to this board with nothing to offer but attaboys for the Colts management no matter what they do.

 

 People that come to this board know squat and the talking heads know considerably less than what Ballard and his team knows.
 So it is ok to let it breath, and root for our new Colts.

Haha

can't afford any more OL ?

quote of the day.

Honestly how many OL have we drafted in last 3 seasons. We need to develop some but we have plenty of depth now for sure. It isn’t like I’ll throw a fit if we draft another....but we can’t ignore the other holes on the team.

Have you watched him or are you looking at projections? I think he's a day one starter with instincts and leadership. 

Honestly...I'm not  familiar with him being from South Carolina State and all.  Going to have to search for some video on him.  Hope you are right.

Check his game film against Clemson. Put him on the map

Luck is about to tear some stuff up!

Or maybe we realized Brissett needs like 2 minutes of protection and we are trying to prepare for another year of him. IMO Luck won’t start the season.

If we dont fix the OL, we will be drafting a QB at the #1 spot next year like Cleveland.  Im ok with "over-doing" it on the OL.  We will only go as far as our QB will take us.  Like all teams.  We've already been told all things wont be "fixed" in this draft.  But the OL HAS to get fixed.

If it was my decision I would have gone Guice and Jackson and gotten a tackle like obrien later. I'm not upset about it though 

Here's my thinking with RB.  RBs can tend to come in and produce right away.  We wont be playoff ready for about 2 or 3 years.  If we draft a RB high with a pick, he's just going to get beat up during the time we can't compete.

 

Spend a 2nd and get the talented rookie when it matters more.

 

Might get Jackson at 49 if he's still there.

The Detroit Lions just got their franchise running back. I'm calling it right now.

 

Also Derrius Guice is really falling right now. He's another guy that was hard to evaluate because he didn't look that good in 2017 either.

And I get that...and I appreciate Ballard’s attempt to fix it. I applaud him...but it’s time to turn our attention to other areas is all. Trust me I’m not hating on our picks.

Exactly. I wish the Vikings front office realized that too. I'm disappointed that all the OL I wanted have been drafted (Wynn, Ragnow, Corbett, Daniels, Price, Kolton Miller).

Trust me, Vikings fan, we can relate. Colts fans were spoiled for years with the Saturday/Glenn O-line combo. But ever since, our O-line sucked every single year. It's so nice to finally address that area.

 

Hey, you could be the Seahawks. They reached for a RB in the 1st & have a terrible line :lol:

Well Josh Jackson is gone... I thought he would have been a good pick for us.

 

I don't think we absolutely need to get a running back, but we need to get a good corner. I wouldn't go into the season trusting Quincy Wilson and Pierre Desir to start on the outside...

No need to get upset buddy

 

I wasn't upset at all when I posted, I was laughing when I read those first post I quoted.  Feel free to tell us all you know about Leonard as a prospect.  How many games have you watched him play?  I have never seen him play, I would be interested in hearing what someone that has seen him play thought.

jacksons fall ended, guice is the last guy i have on my list in the second

 

i think its important to find a tough between the tackles runner to go with these big guards 

I'd like to go D here, but your thought has me second guessing, but I don't know squat about anything other than round 1, so...

he obviously wasnt ballards dream guy

Agreed. Before our pick, I've dreamed of us taking Landry. But I checked myself by thinking this:

 

If 3 teams who OBVIOUSLY need pass rushers (CLE, NYG, IND), 2 of whom have multiple picks, all pass on Landry... a projected top 15-20 1st rounder... then the concerns must be legit. Something must be wrong, because otherwise each team would've picked him in an instant. 

 

So that's why I am okay with us passing on him. Obvious need, most important position on defense, and Indy bypassed him TWICE. I'll trust Ballard and his assessment.

    • Yeah... the newer analytics, if you trust them, by companies like PFF suggest the most valuable positions are the ones most tightly linked to the passing game are the ones that are most valuable ones - meaning, on offense - QB, WR... OT(because they are the hardest OL positions, a lot of one on one pass-protection work) and on defense - CB, EDGE pass-rushers, S... DTs can be valuable too, but they need to have considerable pass-rush production and most of them don't - because the inside is clogged and players get double teamed more easily, etc. The Aaron Donalds of the world are very very rare. I wonder how Buckner grades in their WAR system. He's one of the best interior rushers in the league, but still probably doesn't rank very high when you include all the other positions on the field. I know Aaron Donald' value in their system was about the same as that of an average QB. Just an illustration of how important the QB position is - an average to below average QB gives you the same value as the best interior rusher of this generation. 
    • I would just go with some under the radar guy on a bargain contract... those seem to be the types Ballard goes for. Or someone who was released before FA starts(so it wouldn't count towards compensatory picks formula).   So... I will wait for the cuts to start and pick one of those then... 
    • If the OT class sucked i would be ok with this but it doesn't    Hope we get LT in draft
    • I'm not gonna make excuses for Wentz, but everyone leads in different ways. Peyton was demanding, while Andrew was more nonchalant and dad like. 
    • About 1 hour 21 min into this 2 former teammates of Carson talk about him (FYI, there are a few curse words throughout the podcast):  https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/malcolm-jenkins-on-activism-saints-eagles-trash-talking/id1485277290?i=1000510312176   They say he's not a locker room cancer.  He's a nice guy.  He didn't have to be a leader early in Philly - Jenkins says "his rookie year, we just asked him to be a rookie QB rather than be a leader..." essentially they had enough vet leaders.  Chris Long says he never  thought of Wentz as a jerk, but his rookie year and his MVP level year, he never thought about Carson being a leader, just thought "this QB is very good" and essentially that the team of veteran guys and looking back the only thing he could think is Wentz could reach out to guys across the whole team, rather than just producing well on field... says Nick Foles not a great QB, but Foles had a magnetism about him that made him appear like the leader of that SB team when Carson went down.
