Bro I don't like Ballard, and after New England played him like a fiddle, I truly believe that he's in over his head. He is in the wrong sport for how he sees the game, he has a baseball/basketball approach, but the difference is those aren't contact sports and much more violent. You can't analyse football like baseball. This draft was loaded and every player we could of hope for feel in our lap and what does this intellectual disabled fool does? He goes digging in Barrel trying to find diamonds In the rought in the freaking 2nd round. We're going 4-12 with these sucker moves

 

Ballard is rated by his peers as one of the best. You're a nobody. 

What makes you think your opinion and valuation are worth anything compared to Ballard's?

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?

we drafted positions that we needed, what is your problem

I dont have a problem with the positions, rather the people selected. For each position there were way better options.

How did NE play Ballard like a fiddle? Because McDaniels changed his mind? That's not on Ballard. As for the draft, I get it, not everyone agrees with the picks, but this team isn't the only one passing on some of these players that some feel should have been picked. This team was left in such horrible shape. I'm going to give Ballard a chance to rebuild this shell of a franchise.

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.

TJ Green was ranked something like 123 out of 124 draft eligible safeties in the country when he was drafted. The ones we are selecting have some unexplored potential, but they've also shown much more skill, production and polish than Green ever did in Clemson.

SS is for the bigger, in the box guy, while FS is for the ball hawk who isn’t as good in the run game. I believe you have the 2 mixed up

I'm not saying he cant play the position, just that he'd probably fit SS more.

I feel he’s at his best when he’s the deep guy, but that my opinion. I won’t argue it, because I respect most people’s opinions. I can see where you’re coming from, I just don’t feel the same

I can guarantee you I'm worth more in life than you, your mother, your children, etc. Also you should get a warning for calling me a nobody @Nadine

 

I can guarantee you that you still dont have any worth compared to Ballard. You are a nobody compared to Ballard, so stop acting like your opinion is superior in any way. You have no credentials.

We were VERY fortunate McDooDoo changed his mind.

he would have done nothing but hurt this organization.

dodged a major bullet there.

Giants killed this draft so far  - Saquon Barkley, Will Hernandez, Lorenzo Carter, B.J.Hill :thmup:

 

Broncos are having a great one too, IMO - Bradley Chubb, Courtland Sutton, Royce Freeman, Isaac Yiadom

My take on the Colts Draft so far:

*Nelson = Great pick, protect #12. IMO 2nd best player in the Draft!

*Leonard = Good pick, much needed help at the LB position. He's fast and a Good Tackler.

*Smith = Great pick, he can potentially be Good in this league. I say Great pick because it's about protecting #12.

*Turay = Don't know much about him so this is a reach at DE IMO.

*Lewis = Don't know much about him so this is a reach at DE IMO.

 

-I think our O.LIne starters will be AC = LT, Nelson = G, Kelly = C, Smith = G, not sure yet on RT? We still have Mewhort and Slausen as well, so we have depth on the O.Line now.

 

-Overall Grade so far for me is a B, because of the upgrade on O.Line and I Iike Leonard.

WOW! This is... a very interesting pick. I kind of didn't expect it because we already have Mack playing similar role, but... very very intriguing! He's more of a... wide-ranging weapon than a simple RB. He used to be a receiver... he can be moved anywhere on the LOS and he catches the ball real well.

    • Not necessarily. Houston could get that third pick and draft their own. TUA wouldn’t have to be part of the trade. There is a lot of rumors Miami might draft another QB and get rid of TUA. Or if they get Watson TUA could be on the block. TUA doesn’t seem to have any special qualities. But in saying that I do think his style could fit Reichs system.  He could sit behind rivers for a year. It seems he is having the same issue that manning had as a rookie. Has to learn what is open in the nfl compared to college.
    • Bienemy will be hired by some team...he has interviewed with 6 of them. My guess would be LAC for Herbert.   I think PHI will go with Brady. That's about as fresh of a start as you can get. And you get a QB guru to help develop Hurts.   ATL hires Arthur Smith.   DET will wait until the playoffs are further along.   HOU is such a risky spot right now...no idea what they will do. 
    • A lot of those guys are already signed for multiple years. Only Leonard, Smith, and Hines are going into their contract year. Nelson we have the 5th year option
    • sign Bud Dupree to a 3 year deal with a team option for a fourth year give him roughly about Trade this year’s second and next years second to move up to 12 with the niners   *I don’t know what all it will take to move up 9 spots but that seems good* 1. Trey Lance Qb North Dakota state: Mobile good decision making with an accurate deep ball should thrive in Reichs offense. 3. Brady Christensen OT BYU: Great size and movement can play left or right tackle should fit in well with our current group. 4. Trill Williams Corner Syracuse: Solid ball skills and great size can come in and compete with tell and ya sun day one. 5. Jaelon Darden WR North Texas: Great speed solid route runner good replacement for TY. 6. Tony Poljan TE UVA: Great size at 6’7 solid blocker potential to be a good receiver at the tight end position. 7. Jalen McKenzie OG/OT USC: Great size adds depth can play guard or tackle highest ceiling is as a guard.  
    • The only thing we know is Lawrence will be drafted by JAC...but it's pretty easy to see what happens ; )   #1 - QB #2 - QB (NYJ trade back to a QB needy team OR take one)   Top 2 QBs are off the board...then it gets crazy.   #3 - QB (if MIA trades back) or Sewell  #4 - QB (draft a QB if Sewell goes #3 OR trade back to QB needy team) #5 - Sewell (if QB goes at #3) or QB (trade back) #6 - WR Smith/Chase #7 - WR Smith/Chase #8 - Pitts or CB   Yes...unless Sewell goes at #3...the first 4 are QBs. And if he does go #3...then the rest of the top 5 are QBs.   The problem is the lack of top 5 non-QB talent...especially with players opting out and the lack of a Combine.    A team could go for Chase or Smith in the top 5...but I think they will both go right after the top 5. Pitts won't get drafted over a QB. Surtain probably isn't a top 5 player. Parson and Rousseau opted out...so I doubt a team takes a risk on either that early (in lieu of a QB or a trade back).   How does this affect the Colts? It means they will have to trade up to #2-3 to get their guy. It would be incredible and scary all at once.
