Where is the help at CB, RB, and WR?

We still have those glaring issues to address, and I hope that Ballard finds some gems in rounds 4-7. 

We had so many holes, no way to fix them all with superstars in one draft.

Tomorrow.

 

Those will be addressed tomorrow.

Do you expect the whole roster to be fixed in one draft? Don't be unrealistic, please.

 

Ballard just made it very clear that the trenches are being prioritized this offseason.

 

TY, Rogers, Grant, Ebron and Doyle should be enough for this season in the pass catching department.

RB and DB can still be addressed in the 4th and 5th round x2 (remember Hairston?). 

 

Colts will have to do without high picks at skill positions this year though. Just the way it is. Next season with FA and draft those positions can be the focus.

Also, this is a rebuild, so it’ll take more than this draft to address every need.

Little help will be found in the remaining rounds I'm afraid.  Best to look towards next year.  Hard to find true impact players on day 3.  If we get one...count ourselves fortunate.

What free agency?

CJ Anderson needs to be a priority now behind these new maulers on the inside.

 

I'd also grab Callaway in Rd. 7 with the hope he can clean himself up.

We got decent CBs and a good RB last year

Who are our decent CBs? Quincy hasn’t proven himself yet, and we don’t even know who will start opposite him since we let Melvin go.

Trenches make all your outside guys better. This is what Ballard came in saying from day 1. Build from the trenches out

Games are won in the trenches. #1 playmaker set out last year because of very poor line play. I for 1 am ecstatic that the line is finally getting fixed

RB doesn't matter this year.  Mack and Turbin with a vet cast off this summer will be fine.  LB, CB, and WR are concerns.

While I agree with strengthening the trenches, we definitely could use someone to step up along with TY. I like the two TE sets with Doyle/Ebron but someone else other than those three are going to have to step up. I'm not so sure Rogers or Grant will be that guy. 

 

I'm going to trust Ballard and withhold judgement until I see results, but I will say that I hope they address the skill positions in these rounds.

There are still some good WR prospects left in the draft. Deon Cain, Allan Lazard, E. St. Brown. I'm happy with the trenches strategy.

Ballard did say he liked what was on the roster at running back, and that he'd be ok with TY Hilton, Ryan Grant, and Chester Rogers as his top 3 going into the season. 

 

I'm fine not adding anybody at running back this year, but if one of those 3 receivers go down I don't know who we turn to. 

 

Hopefully someone like Equanimeous St. Brown or Daesean Hamilton fall to our fourth round pick tomorrow.

Ballard said he was upset with our Oline last year, how we didn't measure up in a few games. Well, he's fixing that problem for sure.

We should have gotten 17 picks..what's Ballard thinking?

The one in 2019, which we've obviously been aiming at, when out first targets this FA weren't landed.

I think I'll wait for the finished product before making any overall judgements. I haven't seen any of the draft picks thus far that I just doubt. If CB had not improved the O-line this year and Luck gets hurt again, the folks on this site would have a hissy fit.

We can still get Hines in 4th and St.Brown in 5th.

Nice job calling the Hines pick in the 4th!

    • Are we, as Colts fans, overvaluing or undervaluing Jacoby Brissett?   It probably depends on how you look at our backup QB.  If you are looking at him compared to other backup QBs around the league, you are probably undervaluing him.  I could make the argument that he is the most valuable backup in the NFL.  And I think Ballard agrees.   However, if you're looking at Jacoby as trade-bait, you might be overvaluing him.  A team trading for Jacoby would want him to be their starter.  Granted, this article is written by David Carr for NFL.com, so take it with a grain of salt, but he has at least 10 other QBs ranked ahead of Brissett for other teams to consider drafting, signing as a FA, or trading for.   http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap3000001018216/article/ten-quarterbacks-worth-pursuing-via-tradefree-agencynfl-draft   I expected to see Brissett on that list.  When I didn't, I wondered if I'm overvaluing our backup with blue-colored glasses...   And I think the draft-stock of the QB prospects will only increase leading up to the draft.  I just don't see a team offering Ballard enough to part ways with Jacoby at this point.
    • I'd like to see more games for a bigger sample data. Richardson's expertise is brute raw strength, which is also why he did so well in college -- his opposition was undersized. Now we're placing Trent in a development league and suddenly we're surprised he's doing well? I'm not biting yet. You put me into a game with a bunch of old ladies and I can make myself look strong, too.
    • Fort Wayne, Indiana.   1995 AFC Chamuonship game its Harbaugh is when I started to be a Colts fan.
    • Flowers as well as Dante Fowler Jr. should also be available.  I would be happy will Flowers and Robert Quinn when he is released.  Those two would be great additions.  I can see Quinn getting double digit sacks again moving back to DE. 
    • So Kaepernick did have his price?
