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 are plenty of comparable guards in this draft... Wynn Hernandez Price Ragnow all have just as much ability as Nelson.  And 2 of those are even a better fit in our offense... We will be predominantly in zone and a zone guard doesn't have to be the best guard ever to be productive.

 

Those players do not have any where near the ability if Nelson.  Hernandez is a road grader like Nelson, but is not as good in pass protection.

I meant in terms of getting the 2 x 2nds. It looks like a very good player will be there at 12 and I’d like to have seen us leverage those 2nds to trade back into the 1st to snag a faller. 

 

If Edmunds was there at 12 I’d take it for one.

No One knows what would happen

Is that you Mr Grigson?

 

Lets see who is there at #12 and what guard is available in the second ... I bet the #12 + 2nd round guard (not even taking into account the additional picks) looks better than Nelson + 2nd rnd player X.

 Sure it was. 

Ehhh not that my opinion matters any but even though crazycolt and I normally disagree on 90% of things on here, I gotta go with him on this one. I didn't see a personal shot.

Well certainly not now. But it’s looking likely, heck you take Fitzpatrick at 12 and get decent value. 

 

Again, I think Nelson is more think likely going to be a very goodnight player for us so I’m not hugely upset.

Why settle for less.?  A zone guard doesn't have to be the best guard. But what of he is..

This was the consensus top offensive lineman...  rated well ahead of the 4 you mentioned.

We did very, very well....the surest bet at our weakest position..

Its done..and we won

That’s a straw man argument and you know it.

Not at all.  No such thing as a G that's worth 2 players in the 50s.  Just isnt.  If we held pat and selected the best punter in the decade at 6 it would be about the same thing.

No it is, because using your logic of positional value a punter is not a good comparison to this situation.

In a way we did settle for less. We for sure need linebackers.  And instead of taking a guard who can have a comparable impact on our line we now have a guard who will be great but not much more impact than what could've been had in the 2nd and a way less talented linebacker.  And most likely we have to get a receiver and running back in the 2nd since that's where the value is so our future starting linebackers will be a 3rd rounder and later... We missed big.  That's alot to sacrifice for a guard.

You’re right. Should’ve gotten a pass rusher and watch Luck get killed by the Texans and jags and get hurt. We don’t need a franchise qb when we can watch our d get all those sacks!!!!!!!

Last guy got fired for not protecting #12, I honestly understand the pick.

 

There is a degree of that, Nelson is a consensus player at least, if he busts it’s less of a stain compared to swinging for the fences on a guy.

It proves again how superb a GM Ballard is. Wasn't bothered by the pressure to take a flashy pick. Did the wise thing and picked an instant front runner for our team.

 

The OL works as a group. Joe Haeg said that having to play next to a different player nearly every snap last season was bad for morale and confidence. Our Oline and QB will know they can trust Nelson and almost ignore any threats coming from his lane.

 

Drafting Nelson is almost like drafting a healthy Luck and after last season we cant mess around. The last thing we need is an early retirement for Luck and Ballard trying to draft risky QB's like Mayfield at 1.

You know it’s not the same thing at all.

.... again you don't know what Buffalo offered or even IF they offered to the Colts. Yours grasping at nothing at all.
