Saw a tweet Sam Beal taken by Giants with a round 3 bid. Does not mean we didn’t pass on him. We might have had a not as high as the Giants or submitted a round 4 or higher bid.

 

all teams with 6 wins or less were entered into a weighted lottery (much like the NBA) to determine supplemental draft order. It isn’t necessarily the same as April draft order.

 

Will double check validity of tweet.

I bet we put a 3rd round bid also for Beal, but the giants knew this and picked him one spot ahead of us.

There is a deep crop of CBs coming up in next year's draft. No real potential superstars have emerged yet, but there are some solid Round 3 and 4 prospects that could easily be better bets than Beal. There are also a lot of projected 2nd rounders that could easily drop to 3rd. I think Beal may have just been the shiniest object in an otherwise dull little group and I'm just as happy that the Colts still have all of their picks to use next year instead of spending it on a supplemental draft guy this year.

    • I know, if I remember right you were saying we look like an 8-8 team a while back that was after the Draft and Free Agency (with Luck). 8-8 compared to 4-12 is much better. I am sure there will be 2 or 3 games that can turn ugly on us. Like at Philly and at NE. I want to see how we play the Jags with Luck back, that will be real interesting.
    • There’s no part of me that thinks we will be bad.    Seriously.    But I think there’s a better than 50/50 chance that we might get schooled once or twice  this season.      New inexperienced coaching staff (which I like at this point) plus young inexperienced players is a recipe for a few games getting out of hand.   We might get spanked once or twice.   But I hope we all feel good by the end of the season.    
    • Yeah making the Playoffs at 9-7 is a 50/50 thing. Some teams do, some teams don't. Usually 10-6 gets you in but that doesn't always either. 8-8 is very fair on your part as you at least don't think we will be Bad.
    • I would probably say as of now, this fits each category for someone's prediction:   6-10 = People think we will suck again. Luck may even get injured again or be rusty most of the season. Our Defense will be Bad again. Reich won't do a Good job, etc..   7-9 = People thinking we are still Bad and wont win the close games but will show improvement.    8-8 = Reasonable and a safe way of thinking, it is probable this happens.   9-7 = Reasonable but just being more optimistic and thinking Luck will play all 16 games and be 100% + the Defense and O.Line will be better. The new system under Reich will benefit the team.   10-6 = A Stretch, alot of things will have to go our way like I mentioned in the 9-7 category. We need more breaks to win 10 though, not as many to go 9-7.   11-5 = A huge stretch and everything right has to go our way.
    • I was talking about the 2012 team which you were noting had very little talent.   And I agreed.    But they made the playoffs because those vets who weren't very good played hard and made fewer mistakes.   That's how a less talented team made the post-season.
