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.

    • Contreras gets his payback!!! And I find it odd that Woodruff got so upset when he was thrown at(not hit) as he is the one who has plunked Contreras the most the past several times they’ve played the Pirates. Anyway...  
    • Bold prediction: CW announces retirement at next to last home pre season game.
    • I don't understand your point. Basically every owner agrees to basically every significant roster move. Are you arguing that no GM or head coach has ever been fired? Or that Irsay would fire himself instead of Ballard and/or Reich?
    • I thought this was an interesting watch:     There are really only a handful of Superstar Free Agent signings that you can point to and say "that's why they won a SB":  Tom Brady to Tampa.  Reggie White to Green Bay.  Deion Sanders to Dallas/SF.  Brees to New Orleans.  Peyton to Denver.  And every one of those guys is in the conversation of being the best to play their position... like ever.  But the key is that the teams they went to had already been built through the draft, which is what Ballard is doing.  If you build it, they will come.  (We can kind of already see this with Rivers choosing the Colts last year and Wentz preferring the Colts this year)   I don't think anyone that was a free agent this year is in the conversation of being the GOAT at their respective position, so it really didn't make sense to break the bank for any of the "superstar" free agents this year.  I know @DEFENSE doesn't like Ballards "dollar general method", but it's pretty smart considering the big splash free agent signings rarely correlate to SBs, because those elite HoF-type Superstar Free Agents only come around once in a blue moon.   And Ballard has spent quite a bit the last two offseasons on arguably the two most important positions:  QB to make the offense run, and 3T to make the defense run.  He just didn't spent it on superstar free agents, he traded for proven guys still in their prime.  Ballard is being aggressive with trades and big contracts, but he isn't being stupid wasting big money on a FA when there isn't a guy worth that kind of money.
