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.

Mel Kiper's Hair is definitely right, such great hair!

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.

    • 1. I think the Bears sign Trubisky for another 3 years because Matt Nagy believes in him a lot. 2. Broncos like what they see in Drew Lock and will give him a couple of years. 3. Giants did not give up on Daniel Jones, he has a high ankle sprain due to which Eli is starting, he is their future QB. 4. Panthers most likely might franchise Cam Newton for 1 year because they have seen his ceiling, when given a good O-line, that he could get them to the SB, you just don't give up on that quickly. But they will draft a QB. 5. Winston will be franchised and they will draft a QB. 6. Carr won't be gone but they will draft a QB. 7. Rivers won't be gone but they will draft a QB. 8. Tom Brady and Drew Brees are not going anywhere, Bridgewater will be re-signed for another 2-3 years, IMO close to $10-12 mil. a year making him the highest paid backup QB. 9. Brissett will stay and they will draft a QB. 10. Cowboys will sign Prescott to a new contract but fire a lot of coaches.   Outside the obvious Bengals and Dolphins, I have 5 other teams I believe will draft a QB - Panthers, Bucs, Raiders, Chargers and Colts. 
    • If you want an under the radar QB prospect with mobility who is much better in the pocket, go look at Utah's Tyler Huntley... Oh and he's actually a QB, rather than a gadget weapon. 
    • I put the list in another thread but at some point or another, we have had the top 6 targets all out, plus others.  Yes, some overlap, some don't but the point stands.  That point being that we've had a revolving door at WR this year.     As for who they were. TY Funchess Campbell Rogers Fountain Ebron. Those guys were at the top of the depth chart for pass catchers.
    • A lot of the things are still the same. I completely disagree about him being able to throw with anticipation and his ability to reads of coverages, although he says that he's slow with his reads... which I guess is one way to parse what's happening. I think his ball placement and footwork have become better and I think his movement in the pocket and climbing up the pocket has become better. 
    • I'd bench both Cook and Mattison, and play Hunt and Guice.   Mainly because Baker has a sore thumb, so I think he will check down to Hunt a lot vs the Bengals, plus Chris Thompson is out and hence Guice will be more involved in a game vs Packers who should score better than the Panthers thus reducing Adrian's impact. I have a good feeling that the combination of Hunt and Guice will give you the SAME production as the combination of Cook and Mattison.   But if you want to play one of Cook or Mattison, and one of Hunt and Guice, based on game flow, I feel play Mattison and Guice.
