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'm embarrassed with my post about Leanard. I was wrong  and eating crow because the guy is looking real good.

I love reminiscing. 

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!

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.

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.

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.

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

 

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

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

We've all been guilty of it, but yeah, that was a pretty bad take LOL.

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.

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

 

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.

    • I like the move.  What will be interesting to see is if a full year of NFL off season conditioning and workouts actually help Blankenship get stronger and improve his distance. 
    • Blankenship was consistent, the distance when it got to 49 and higher is what made us very very nervous. If nothing else, it upped the level of competition. I am all for this move.
    • Slot chain mover guy, that is what he was at Penn State, but the slot with speed is what K J Hamler brings to their squad, so he became expendable, ironically K J Hamler is also from Penn State. We use our WRs so interchangeably that I am not sure we really need him, to be honest. If I get him on waivers, yes, without losing a draft pick. If not, I wouldn't worry about it. 
    • A lot of people seem to disagree with you, but depending upon how it plays out, you might be right.  If Wentz is playing well, the team is winning and he misses 3-4 games, you would probably rather have a vet.      If Wentz falls on his face, however, you might as well see what you have in Eason before drafting a QB.
    • I don't know that he will command Top 10 money by then.  And Ryan Kelly's compensation actually goes down each year going forward, it was a very front loaded contract by Ballard standards, if I read it correctly.  So the overall compensation given to the line will be top dollar when Nelson and Smith are extended, but I don't think that it will be outrageous.     But we will almost have to fund the RG position with a young player under a rookie contract, IMO.  Might find a replacement for Kelly at some point if he's dinged a lot or becomes too expensive.   If our pricey Olineman are both OTs and the LG, I think we'll be fine.  Might be able to afford a luxury at C if we're not paying WRs top dollar.  I think that's how the cap structure might work under a Reich O.
