You have to keep in mind, these folks have spent minutes breaking down film on Youtube. They have also thoroughly browsed the mock drafts to see where mock drafts have these guys slated. If only Colts management knew this to the point research was available, they could have saved a lot of hours and money on scouting, going to games, going to practices. If they haven't heard your name, you can't possibly be worth the pick.

People act like the Jags didn’t add Taven Bryan to an already ridiculous defensive line that features Calais Campbell, Marcell Dareus, Malik Jackson, and Ngakue. People should be jumping for joy over the picks of Nelson and Smith.

I say the same thing to you two.  Tell us everything you know about the two picks.  I have not seen Leornard play so it would be fascinating to read what people that have seen him play have to say.

U probably blindly give the Colts an A plus on the draft so far. Nelson A plus, rest a D. Our scounting stinks.

100% agree. Interior O-Line is huge in our division.

Wow! It seems like the "experts" think the Colts are doing a pretty good job with this draft.

Smith is not a tackle

I saw him playing a lot of RT in his highlights.  I haven't read where it's said they want him to only play guard.  I like Good at guard myself.  As long as he starts I don't care.  I'm not a coach.

Well I would assume they know a whole lot more than we do because they have access to far more NFL sources than we do. 

 

I bet you thought it was foolish for the Colts to sign Unitas after he couldn't make it with the Steelers. Haha

I don't give them any grade for 2 or 3 years.

 

I am still waiting for your in depth analysis on the draft picks.  I'm sure it will be riveting, being that you are such an expert.

Draft grades during or right after a draft are an exercise in foolishness.   I'm not thin skinned,  I just find stupidity, ... well, stupid and I just hope that people like some of the posters here don't bother to vote.

Smith won O lineman awards in the SEC so I'm fine with that pick but Leanard

looks a bit timid and slow to be a linebacker. Not a big contact guy judging

by his highlight tapes.

I don't, not when it comes to draft picks which are an inexact science anyways. Like Polian said "if you listen to the fans, you will be sitting with them". I wonder how many words of mine could be regurgitated back to me from when I was loose with my mouth in my youth. We all say dumb and uninformed things in our lives, no different on a forum.  That is all I can say. :)

Can you go back to '98 when some people wanted Leaf over Manning?

haha

Thank heavens we didn't take Leaf. We would've been the NFL version of the Blazers passing on Michael Jordan back in the day.

Braden Smith isn't a tackle imo.   They need to leave that man at guard.

Safe to say there would be no "we"...

 

"We" would be the LA Colts by now.

Or go back to the '98 draft & look at how awful every single pick is outside of Manning. If not for the Manning pick, that's an all-time horrible draft class.

He gave me a migraine yesterday when he was in at left tackle.

Just having fun. But in retrospect, isn't judging after one game....just as silly as judging before a guy has played?

Wasn't he in as an eligible receiver ? I thought he was going deep on a post route ....

Yes, technically lined up as the tight end. Poor play design to ask him to block Dunlap 1 on 1 on the edge.

The earlier videos someone posted didn't do him any justice, but later

vids he looked pretty good. I would bet a few GM's are kicking themselves

by not taking him in the 1st rd.

You make a good point. I’d say the main difference is that we’ve seen him in real deal NFL action now, he looked solid, & it’s probably safe to assume that he’ll only get better moving forward.

Ill eat crow about Leonard. He has looked really good. Dude flies around the field. However, I still think the rest of the 2nd round picks were reaches and we could have drafted more impactful players.

    • Kenny Moore is a much better CB Tim Jennings.
    • According to Houston whispers, the Texans won't pursue a new candidate this year. O'Brien will be the GM for 2019. If that's true, I think Caserio will end up in there .... just not in 2019. (His contract will expire next year in Boston.)
    • Well, Sanders played mostly close to the box, and was covering the middle area of the field a lot in Dungy's system, and Moore plays in the slot, and he is also covering the middle area of the field as well. So, I kinda see why you saw some similarities. However, they are very different types of players, they play at different positions, so there is hardly any similarity if you break down what they do actually. It might seem a bit similar, but it's very different.   And, as others said, Bob was a generational talent. He played on an entirely different level. Remember when teams use to ran 200 / 300 yards against the Colts D in 2006? The entire regular season? Then Bob came back for the playoffs and the Colts D suddenly turned into the big wall of china. That was Sanders, alone. He was a game changer when healthy.
    • You were correct with your 6 games statement. ;) Only, that 6 games can be gained by being on active roster (which is not game day roster!) or on IR.   (Might worth to add, that players on IR don't count against the 53, but they are under "normal" NFL contract. They can rehab in the team facilities, they can take part in meetings, etc. Please also note, that waiving a player with injury settlement and putting someone on IR are two different move. The latter is the "real" IR. It keeps the player under contract, and be part of the team. The former is practically a cut, with some financial implications. E.g., the team is willing to pay money for the player, if he won't be claimed by another team.)   Regarding Cox, 2017 didn't count as accrued season for him, because he spent most of the year on PS, which does not count. (He wasn't on IR neither. I mean, "under contract" IR, because players can be waived with IR settlement as well, which does not count as accrued season.) Cox will be an ERFA in 2020, and an RFA in 2021.
