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.

thats hilarious, thought we drafted brandon weeden 2.0 lol

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?

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. 

its from wikipedia, i cant say its confirmed or anything.  September 12, 1991 (age 26 years)

 

it does seem strange, but few people are talking about him at all really considering where he played

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

He isn’t 26, he’s 22 or 23, but if you look at the wiki page which is giving the age of 26, it also says he’s 6’9”. Definetely messes up

@stitches who are the best players available? Any OL on your list?

 

Vikes are picking soon.:heart:

Some of the tackles are still on the board - Crosby(my OT3), Jamarco Jones, Rankin... from the developmental ones - Cappa, Okorafor, Harrison, Noteboom.... 

 

From the interior linemen - everybody I had day 2 value for are gone. Wyatt Teller left. 

 

edit: O'Neill is a developmental one too - you just got him.

Haha a lot of disappointed fans, y'all need to trust the process Leonard is a solid Will  and we got a raw pass rusher, best part is our OL is looking strong I love how much a gym rat Braden Smith is, he called weight lifting his hobby since 6th grade

Im a big auburn fan, let me tell you, Braden has the strength to be a bully, but he's stiff as a log. The coaches at Auburn ain't worth a spit, gimmick offense.....remember that Robinson fella that got drafted out of Auburn to the rams like 5 years ago? That's Braden

He looks like a road grader....maybe we will be able to run the ball.

Four 2nd rounders lol!

Thank you! Of the ones left, I liked Crosby the best. I saw O'Neill mocked to us a few times. I don't know how much I like this pick. I wanted Wynn, Ragnow and Corbett.

 

Good luck on the next pick.

Grigson must be Ballard's advisor?

 

We went into this draft saying trust Ballard. Now after we didn't get the picks we might have wanted personally, Ballard is in *? I'm not an NFL evaluator and it's been said Ballard is one of the best around. So we either trust him or we call Irsay for a job.

Another DE???

 

We keep throwing spaghetti on the wall, sooner or later it will stick, that is the hope.

 

Tarrell Basham, Kemoko Turay, Tyquan Lewis plus coverage LB Darius Leonard.

 

Here is to hoping a couple of them hit at least.

So... We have like 15 defensive lineman... (Sarcasm) and a bare linebacker Corp that is going to feature Leonard... I'm fine with Leonard but we need more athelticm desperately at linebacker.  Unless we trade back into the 3rd the pickings will be slim in the 4th.

Ballard did say early in the draft process that they would be fine if Hilton, Rogers, and Grant were the top 3 receivers, but what if one of them get injured?

 

Hopefully we are looking for WR tomorrow as well as a developmental cornerback at least.

Robinson was a 1st round pick and LT, Braden will play RG or if he shows he can RT different responsibilities. I trust our coaches to teach him and put him in the best position.

Look towards the WR we brought in from USF Marquez Valdes-Scantling. Same college Mack is from, the dude is tall and fast and was most hindered by bad QB play he can be a late round steal.

I think he is definitely a project especially from a route running perspective, but his measurable do give him a lot of potential. I'm personally hoping Equanimous St. Brown makes it to our 4th round pick.

I hope that these guys have the size, speed, and potential of TJ Green. I love drafting for potential. 

 

lol...I'm just playing devil's advocate. In all honesty, I'll just wait to see how it all pans out.

    • Moncrief had a higher ceiling imo. But I actually like Pittman because of his floor. Colts need good WRs...I just think they need more of them. An alpha WR1 would be ideal...but that's easier said than done. Just looking at the FA group...there are going to be options...and I also think there will be WRs available via trade.    Originally, I wanted to draft another WR this year...but I don't think they will be able to do that now...so getting a proven option will be imperative. If they don't address WR with an outside option...I will be very surprised. 
    • I'm still thinking we're taking a LT with the 1st.    Though to play along with this speculation game, I'd take Jones. 
    • I think they need WR and TE big time. The Colts are a dome team...the offense should be full of weapons...not a bunch of "ifs."   Setting aside QB...which is the priority...the Colts pass catchers also don't really match up to the teams they have to beat to win a SB.    I love the WR group in the draft...but I also think it's going to open up the FA and trade market as well. The Colts should be adding a proven vet WR this offseason.   At TE...the average age is ~29. Doyle is a TE2 at most at this point. I wouldn't be surprised if hung it up after this season (definitely next). MAC is an ERFA...and while I am sure they will tender him a contract...they didn't give him the opportunity to take the next step this year...so there's no way to go into next season with him as the top TE. Then there's Burton. I was happy to be wrong about him coming back...but he doesn't really offer anything they couldn't get elsewhere. He's basically   So basically...you have a pair of TE2s and no real dynamic threat. This offseason could see some younger TE options become available in FA/trade...and it's a pretty good draft group. So I hope they take advantage.
    • See, that's the thing I'm thinking about with Urban. Being a head coach in the NFL isn't a normal job. It's 24/7, eat, sleep and breath. That can really be taxing on a person's health, and well, Urban's left positions before citing issues with health and family. I can see him completely transforming the Jags, making them even a winning organization, and then suddenly retiring.    It's one heckuva risk the Jags are taking. But, it could pay off in a big way. 
    • I agree with this, but I would add that I see Pascal as a solid #2 to play alongside another #2 that matches dictate who is the guy that game. Not trying to mince words, I just think he is better than a 3rd WR, which is often considered the after thought.
