Best remaining players for day 2 (merge)

Recommended Posts

My preference would be to go corner and pass rush at 36 and 37. 

 

I wonder if we'll be tempted by Will Hernandez if he's still free.

 

Have a look at the running backs when our 3rd second round pick comes up.

 

I feel like we could come away away Hubbard and Jackson or Oliver and I'd love that.

I like Jackson better than Denzel Ward, so I would be extremely happy if we took him at 36 or 37. Hernandez would be interesting if he fell 3 more spots and a couple of our preferences were snatched up. Guice is very solid as well. A decent selection for 36 and 37. I'd wait on Maurice Hurst some more. He's going to fall IMO.

I'd love to take Gs Will Hernandez, Connor Williams (not a NFL T), Austin Corbett, or Braden Smith somewhere in round 2.  Maybe Jamarco Jones or Martinas Rankin as a swing G/T...whichever we would need.

 

Lots of choices for a G, maybe 2, or 1 and a T

Landry and Josh Jackson.  Get some pass rush in there and combine Jackson and Hooker in the secondary and that is one ball hawking secondary.  

 

At the bottom of the 2nd grab an ILB or RT.  

 

I wouldn't be opposed to Guice in there.

Sutton

Jackson or Oliver

Rankins

I think we can get a good cover lb later in Warner or Burks.

I think Guice and Landry next 2 of 3 off the board.

Hurst and Carter I'm thinking Landry is gone but who'd of thought he'd still be there after 32 picks 

Shades of Myles Jack. He’s been consistently available.

According to the Draft show(Cowboys draft show) Maurice Hurst has a "thickening of the heart" (no idea what that means). They said many team have him off the board and if he undergoes a surgery to correct that he will not be allowed to play again and his career will be over.

Using Blue Shoes list....    and noting that I might've accidentally overlooked someone....     These would be the players who interest me....    and note,  that we only have four picks for Friday,  and I'd love a 5th...

 

By position....

 

CB

Josh Jackson

Isiah Oliver

Carlton Davis

Isaac Yisidrom

 

DE

Harold Landry

Sam Hubbard

 

OLB

Lorenzo Carter   (who might also project to DE?)

Darius Leonard

 

DT

Mo Hurst

Nate Shepherd

BJ Hill

 

RB

Darrius Guice

Ronald Jones

Nick Chubb

Kerryon Johnson

Royce Freeman

 

 

One each from each group....   5 groups,  4 picks...   36, 37, 49, 67.    So unless we wheel and deal,  that's not going to happen.

 

For so many names, your list is almost perfect.  I don't see what others see in Guice however and would move him down to the bottom.

Landry would be my first choice but I'm afraid the Giants grab him. In this case I would go with Josh Jackson & Hurst or Guice (which ever one is highest on Ballard's board.)

 

With our 3rd second round pick or a 3rd rounder I would love to see Josey Jewell.

I'm in on Josh Jackson.  Just read he's more of zone guy which fits our scheme really well.  Ball hawk.  Wilson, Jackson, Hooker and Geathers would make for a very dangerous and young secondary. 

 

Outside of him I like Guice and a Mike Linebacker.  Then in the 3rd grab a #2 receiver or a guy to play right tackle.

As much as I feel like we should be reaching for some linebacker in round 2, I am hoping Ballard sticks with taking the best players on the board... There is a lot of top notch talent that is going to fall to us. As Kiper said (and I quote him carefully and infrequently), "All Ballard has to do is to not overthink and take the best players available."  Keep it simple. Let your board do the work. We are in a HECK of a spot right now folks. Tickled the way this draft is falling in our favor.

My prediction, Skip Landry (especially if there is medical red flags) and take Josh Jackson and Guice. Focus on WR and LB on our next two picks, which makes more sense with the players that should be available at those picks. I don't feel good about our linebacking core, but also understand that Ballard and Eberflus might feel much better than we do with what we have on roster/ what they know they can get late 2nd/3rd/4th rounds.

Don't rule out moving some picks either. With that much talent left, I can see Ballard turning heads with multiple trades tonight.

If we get Landry I will do a victory dance. I thought he would be gone by now.

We missed out on Chubb by one pick....I think the same happens with Landry : ( or maybe to the Giants who have need there too. There is good value there at our pick. I just hope we get lucky enough to have the right people fall to us. Who knows....there was some sure head scratchers in round 1.

I have my 2nd round mock going:

33) CLE - Connor Williams

34) NYG - Will Hernandez

35) CLE - Derrius Guice

36) IND - Harold Landry

37) IND - Joshua Jackson

 

Skipping ahead, I’d be choosing at 49 between Mairice Hurst and Anthony Miller (really under-rated).  Probably Hurst.

Don't forget about Tyrell Crosby OT from Oregon.  He can bend and plays nasty.  The OT from Boston College would be nice as well.

 

Crosby’s been in most my mocks - love him.  But I really didn’t anticipate Josh Jackson, Hernandez, Guice, and Landry all being available here.  I think Crosby gets eclipsed by better athletes on my board...

Wow, if Hurst is there at 49, it would be the steal of the round.

 

After what Ballard and Reich said last night about building the line on both sides of the ball, I was thinking they’d go Hurst with one of our early 2s.

You might be right.  I just don’t know how to factor in his heart condition.  Some of the big boys think he might fall to the 3rd day.  He does have the ideal skill set for our DTs...

There's probably a reason he has fallen this far. Especially with how much pass rushers are coveted. I feel like I'm the only one not ecstatic about picking him. He gives me Jarvis Jones, Barkevious Mingo type vibes....

RoJo with the last of the 2nds if we lose out on Guice and go WR with our 3rd (should be a good amount of talent left on the board).

Lots of talent on the board I wasn't expecting. Who does everyone think goes before we pick tonight? Cleveland picks twice and could be looking at CB, OL, RB. Guessing NYG go OL or Edge? Should still have great options for 36-37 no matter what.

I’m starting to get more excited about the 2nd round than I was for the first because of the talent available. There’s so many options. 

 

Based on scheme fit and traits, there’s no way Ballard doesn’t take Josh Jackson. He likes big, long corners with ball skills. That’s the definition of Josh Jackon. He improved his 40 time at his pro day.

 

The idea of having an OL that features Quenton Nelson and Connor Williams is really exciting. Or even Hernandez. Or better yet what if he takes Hernandez and Williams? You’d have the best OL in football.

 

I also know Ballard went after Alshon Jeffrey, who Reich ended up coaching on the Eagles. They have to be thinking about Courtland Sutton.

 

So many options!!!!!:mindblow:

Because my list has more targets than we have actual picks (as of this moment) I didn't actually list them necessarily in priority order...    sorry for the confusion, I should've been more clear...

 

I just hope to get one from four of the columns...   my preference is for three defenders and a RB...   I'd prefer not to take a WR and I'd prefer not to take another OL...

You really have to watch his 2016 film to see why he's so highly ranked. He dealt with a lingering injury (not a serious one) all last season, so his 2017 film isn't as good as his 2016. I didn't care for him at all until I watched that older film.

This is correct. Guice in 2016 was a monster. He played through injuries in 2017. We have to scout him on his best and worst.

    • Are we, as Colts fans, overvaluing or undervaluing Jacoby Brissett?   It probably depends on how you look at our backup QB.  If you are looking at him compared to other backup QBs around the league, you are probably undervaluing him.  I could make the argument that he is the most valuable backup in the NFL.  And I think Ballard agrees.   However, if you're looking at Jacoby as trade-bait, you might be overvaluing him.  A team trading for Jacoby would want him to be their starter.  Granted, this article is written by David Carr for NFL.com, so take it with a grain of salt, but he has at least 10 other QBs ranked ahead of Brissett for other teams to consider drafting, signing as a FA, or trading for.   http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap3000001018216/article/ten-quarterbacks-worth-pursuing-via-tradefree-agencynfl-draft   I expected to see Brissett on that list.  When I didn't, I wondered if I'm overvaluing our backup with blue-colored glasses...   And I think the draft-stock of the QB prospects will only increase leading up to the draft.  I just don't see a team offering Ballard enough to part ways with Jacoby at this point.
    • I'd like to see more games for a bigger sample data. Richardson's expertise is brute raw strength, which is also why he did so well in college -- his opposition was undersized. Now we're placing Trent in a development league and suddenly we're surprised he's doing well? I'm not biting yet. You put me into a game with a bunch of old ladies and I can make myself look strong, too.
    • Fort Wayne, Indiana.   1995 AFC Chamuonship game its Harbaugh is when I started to be a Colts fan.
    • Flowers as well as Dante Fowler Jr. should also be available.  I would be happy will Flowers and Robert Quinn when he is released.  Those two would be great additions.  I can see Quinn getting double digit sacks again moving back to DE. 
    • So Kaepernick did have his price?
