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.

    • lol I wonder where he thinks Mariotta lands in the QB rankings
    • Agree about the lateral runs. There was a couple times when we just needed short yardage - clearly best going straight down the middle especially with an O-line like ours. Panthers did the same the other night and that cost them big time.   As for Brissett, so far I am pleasantly surprised with him. I thought he would struggle more than he has, not that he has been amazing or anything but he is doing an okay job so far. Hopefully he keeps getting better with more games under his belt.
    • That’s normally how it goes for kickers at the end.  They just lose it.
    • That's three bad games in a row.  I'm not sure what's going on.  Imo, you don't fall so fast.  It's not like he's been losing distance over the years.  He just seemed to fall off a cliff.  
    • This is such a ridiculous post, lol   Allie Cox is nowhere near the receiving threat the Ebron is. Dude hurdled someone in the open field today...dude is a top option in this offense only after Hilton. He may have a bit of an outspoken personality but that has not clashed with the locker room nor his on field performance so it's a very irrelevant point.      Anyways, I'd have to go with Geathers. He makes too many mistakes and is injury prone.
