No..must fall in company line like big brother..no disagreements...yeah right.

Ballard and the scouts have watched hundreds of hours of film.   They have actually talked to these kids.   Fans watch YouTube.   I'm going to take the opinion of those in the know

Yeah. They aren’t sexy picks but Ballard is building the o-line for luck. This could be the first year we have a good line. Leonard pick was a reach but he’s a good player with a high ceiling. Trust Ballard. 

Ryan tried to build a line too, getting more d will help.

leanord was projected to go in the second

 

No he wasn't...at least not as a quasi-1st rounder. He's an FCS player and his Combine was meh.

 

Need pick...the theme this far.

I’m not super familiar with either guy, but no matter how ya slice it, we just drafted 3 starters in a row, & have another pick in this round.

 

Draft anyone and they're a starter on this team.

I just love how all off season we've heard how we need to protect Andrew Luck. That if we only had an OL then Luck wouldn't have missed last year. Then Ballard goes and tries to fix the OL and the GM wannabes cry because it isn't the sexy pic. Come on people! If we protect Andrew this team will be a playoff contender.

What mocks have you looked at? For weeks mocks have had the Colts taking Leonard in the 2nd round.

This is beyond dumb, even for an exaggeration.

We are also creating great depth!  We need this to handle Jville and Tennessee.  I like it a lot!  Imagine Andrew with time to throw and the threat of a running game!  Go Ballard Go!

TBH don’t know much about Smith. I’d be happier about it if he can play T.

 

Luck better be vertical next season haha. I’m fine with the Leonard pick.

I love picking Darius Leonard. He is a perfect linebacker for the defense and he is one of the few linebackers projected as a possible second round pick.

 

Smith seems more of a guard than a tackle at least based on most of what i've read. I'll be interested to see where Ballard/Reich view him playing. After taking Nelson in round 1 I would have preferred another defensive player but that's JMO. I hope Smith brings a similar nasty attitude that Nelson is projected to bring.

Smith is a 1st team All American and All SEC. So he must be a scrub! We are bringing in 2 All Americans on the OL Protecting Andrew Luck is going to happen finally! Good pick!

Yes, I love these picks I love it that we're finally maybe going to have a dominant O-line. I know everybody wants us to fix all our problems in one draft that it isn't going to happen it wasn't supposed to happen. That's why they have a three-year plan. But they had to protect Luck in the meantime.

I love how everyone wants to play armchair GM. There’s a reason they have guys who get paid to scout and know much more then anyone on this forum ... relax CB knows more then u!

Yeah with overpaid free agents that busted and mid to late round draft picks. This isn't even comparable. Two All American guards, one being the best prospect possibly ever. This is game changing for this offense and Andrew Luck.

    • He can have all the heart he wants, but at the end of the day, what matters is his performance.    About the OP, it's nice to see all the stats in one post. If JB could just turn up a notch in terms of YPA, we would've a very nice offense, even with this group of WR.   As a matter of curiosity, why didn't you used the PIT and MIA stats?
    • I traded the 49ers D for Alshon Jeffrey and kept just Ravens D and Eagles D, better usage of my bench and roster, I felt.
    • I think it's going to be one of the most interesting offseasons of the past years.  It's fun to think and talk about all the scenarios that could happen. 
    • Cain’s main issues with the Colts were injuries.   Whatever baggage he had that made him slip to the 6th round were not brought here to the Colts.    To the best of my knowledge there are no negative stories about Cain while in Indianapolis.   Except injuries.   He wasn’t healthy enough, long enough to get polished enough to co tribute much.   But he has still has a ceiling.  His future is still viable if he can stay healthy for an extended period of time.  But in every interview I ever saw, Ballard spoke highly of Cain.  Very highly.    Maybe it’s with Pittsburgh, maybe he returns to the Colts someday.   I wish the kid well. 
    • I hear you, it's a coin flip.  I'm feeling ok about it though.   I've been wrong in the past (so often) but despite "playing down to our competition" we've been solid in our divisional games this year, undefeated in fact.  Seems like they get up for these.  Frank will have them ready.   Wish it was at LOS, but we've performed well in Houston in the past and I think TY will play, you just put him in a uni and we're already in their head.   Both teams are beat up so that's a wash.  Both on a short week so that's a wash.   From a colts perspective,  I think this is Jacobys coming out party.  We want national attention for obi-wan jacoby, this is his chance.  They're gonna try to make him beat them thru the air and I know he can.  Unlike last time most of the country is gonna be watching.  Say what you want about Brissett but he doesnt shrink under the big lights.   Plus our d has been sneaky solid for awhile now......gonna be close but I like our chances..........
