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?

I think it's awesome! Definitely better than just Roger up there

Agree.

Also if it was Roger all the time, it would just be booing all the time

Plus, I loved seeing Addai

nice story about connor williams

That's my favorite story of Day 2 so far. The camera stayed on him, and how about that emotion? It must be a dream to be from Texas, play college football at UT, then get picked by the hometown Cowboys? You get to play professional football near your family and friends??

 

I wanted him here in Indy, but just saying... that must be a dream for Connor. Good for him.

I ain’t going to lie...never heard of him. Lol

 

The Vikes liked Turay a lot. We did the Colts Forum Mock Draft here. I selected him in the 3rd round for the Vikes.

Turay has ability and potential,but I like to get starters in the first two rounds and I do not see him as a starter right away.

 

Hopefully Robert Mathis works with him extensively and he can be a pass rush specialist for us in year 1.

Gotta admit...only Rutgers game I remember was against IU. We won like 40-0....I couldn’t imagine anyone on that defense NFL worthy.  Guess I was wrong lol.

Kemoko seems like a boom or bust type of player. Time will tell how he works out but he has a lot of talent.

 

One for sure...Ballard is proving he is serious about building this team around the offensive and defensive lines. Some GMs say it but they don't follow through on it. Ballard is certainly following through with it.

afraid thats his age.  his birthday is right before the season 

 

I don't think that it his really his age. He is also listed at 6'9 which I don't think is accurate.

 

There was a Darius Leonard who played college basketball at Wake Forest a few years ago. He is 6'9 and probably around 27. I think the internet is somehow getting that Darius Leonard mixed up with the Darius Leonard the Colts drafted.

He is not that old. It’s a basketball player with the same name that’s 26.

Thanks....but if an unheard of basketball player is higher up in google then you...also a warning sign perhaps lol. Just kidding!

leonard will be 27 when the season starts...

 

probably will be our will.  supposedly fast, but ran a disappointing 40 

There is no way Leonard is 27. That would have been talked about a lot more. 

 

And I'm not worried about his 40 time because he plays a lot faster, has good instincts, and makes tackles in the back field a lot more than other linebacker prospects do.

    • Fair point.   No quibble.       
    • I could easily be wrong about this,  but I think you're high on Nelson, Leonard and Smith.    Maybe not by a lot,  but by enough that the Colts will have more money left than you think.   ***I think Q can pick the length of his deal.   I'm guessing he'll have the following options.  4/60 (15) or 5/80 (16) or 6/102. (17) ***I think Leonard is looking at roughly   4/56 (14)  5/75. (15) ***I think Smith is looking at                    4/50 (12.5)  5/65 (13)   The keys to all three deals are....   the signing bonus and the amount guaranteed at signing --- these two are often confused, but they are not the same.     
    • I'm not saying you don't need speed and/or power. I'm just pointing out college players rely on it too often because it works in college, but then find out without technique their not as efficient.
    • OK......      I'm not speaking to Basham at all.    Have seen zero film on him.   I was only trying to say that DL's using speed and/or power in the NFL have worked since the league began.    PLayers who don't with at least one of them typically don't last long in the NFL.    The ones who can win with both have long, successful careers.   More to the point, our whole defense is built on speed.   Especially on the defensive front.   Look at our DE's.   Houston uses both speed and power.    Autry uses both as he plays DE and DT.   Turay is a speed guy.   Banogu is a speed guy.   Lewis, is a bit like Autry in that he plays both DE and DT.    He's trying to use both to win.    We're trying to find DL who win with their first step.  Get even on step 2,  and pass the OL on step 3.       Do the D-Lineman need to develop better hand moves -- absolutely.   100 percent.   That's why Ballard says young DL often need 2-3 years to figure things out.    He just noted Jerry Hughes who didn't blossom until Year 4 with Buffalo.   We gave up on him too soon.    Sorry,  don't mean to belabor the point,  I wanted to read your response before I posted what I needed to say....   Thanks...  
    • You give him the same weapons as Watson had, he will.
