Yes.....   I agree.    And honestly,  I suspect the Saints over-paid in order to move up as far as they did.    They had to entice a team to make it worthwhile for them to move that far down.

 

Call it.....     the cost of doing business.

 

It's next to impossibe to see Ballard being willing to trade so much high draft capital in order to trade up.    I think he'd pass on that....

 

 

Agreed

I think we should do Lawrence in round 2 if we go that direction.  Similar to when the Seahawks picked up Jarran Reed in Round 2.   I won't cry if we take him though because pick#26 is damn near like Round #2 anyway.

For those discussing the value of trading up, remember that a current player can be used/traded to up the compensation. Not saying it is likely to happen, just that straight slot to slot value doesn't cover all that is possible..

With Brissett on his last year does anyone think the Colts might draft a QB for the future? I know they normally have a 3rd QB for training camp.

Most would think a free agent but is there one in later rounds worth taking a look at?

I doubt it. Its better to a vet so that he can help Luck see what the defense is doing.

Alexander Mattison seems like a pretty darn good big back to me. Hes got really good feet, good vision, catches the ball well and hes got a great deal of power if we need to pound the ball. I like his game more than Dave Montgomery. If we dont get Jacobs i wouldnt mind Mattison. Hes got a pretty good grade on Nfl.com also.

Colts showing serious interest in Stetson TE Donald Parham. They have him for an official 30 visit:

Quote

 

The Stetson pro day workout actually took part last week, but it was important with Senior Bowl participant Donald Parham the main attraction.

 

Parham tipped the scales at 240 pounds, three pounds less than his Senior Bowl weight. He touched 38.5 inches in the vertical jump and completed 17 reps on the bench press (his arms measured 36-1/4 inches at the Senior Bowl).

 

He then ran the 40 in times that clocked as low as 4.67 seconds and caught the ball well in position drills.

 

Parham has official-30 visits with the Indianapolis Colts, Oakland Raiders and New York Giants.

 

Both the Colts and Raiders have requested additional time with Parham above the official-30 visit.

I am not a fan at 26 depending on who is there at 26. If we get a defensive player at 26 I would be ok taking him at 34.  Just sucks he won’t play next season.

Would dexter Lawrence and Jeffery Simmons play the same position. I noticed they are both DT.

He could still play this year.  He tore it early enough where it is still possible.

Interesting. He is one player if he fell far enough I could see them trading up for.

Lawrence would be more of a NT where as Simmons can play either the nose or 3-tech as he's more of an upfield rusher.

Just listened to this. The gist of it was that Galko believes the Colts will target DL in round one and if Lawrence is there he does not see the Colts passing on him. He however thinks Lawrence may go earlier and has the Colts taking Tillery.

 

Also noted that he's heard that they really love Isabella and that they may have to take him at 59 or trade up into the early third to get him.

 

Interesting stuff and good podcast.

Colts will have one of the highest ranked RBs in the draft Miles Sanders from Penn State in for a workout/meeting:

 

 

Michigan RB Karan Higdon is visiting the Colts too:

 

 

 

This is kind of weird. All the visits from Spencer Ware, Jay Ajayi, etc... then showing serious interest in the best RBs in this draft... to me it looks like the Colts are not satisfied with the RB stable we have.

Wilkins averaged over five yards a carry. He needs more snaps. I think they are fine with Mack but for some reason are not satisfied with Wilkins. I bet they turn Hines into more of a receiver this year.

I don’t see Jacobs going to the colts unless he falls a ton. No way they are taking him in the first or second round.

Here's another one:

 

Colts hosting Alabama RB Josh Jacobs for a visit. 

 

First Sanders now Jacobs for a visit.  The top RB prospects are coming in.  I don't think we are waiting until the 4th. rd.   I think the first two days are now in play.  Looks like we will try to upgrade the RB group for sure.  I'm all for it too.

This is the "I hope they don't take Jacobs" sentiment speaking on behalf of several fans on this board.  Personally speaking, it is unlikely he falls that far and hopefully he at least gets us a trade down opportunity if he is around at No.26 or No.34. I expect him to go at No.24 or No.25 to the Raiders or Eagles.

 

Colts fans throughout this forum will breathe a sigh of relief once Josh Jacobs is drafted before No.26, I can bet 100% on that

 

Kareem Hunt (on the field Kareem that is) dropped to the 3rd round because of a bad 40 (4.6 something) and if Josh Jacobs is there at No.59, I can most certainly see Ballard pulling the trigger. Kareem Hunt played much faster than that, and I expect the same from Josh Jacobs too. The comparisons are uncanny with their abilities to run and catch, IMO.

You are right about the sigh of relief but I would be the exception that wouldn't mind him at all at 26.  If he is truly rated that high by most experts he would be a value at 26.  I expect him to go before 26 though.  That said would Ballard be tempted to trade up a few spots before the Eagles and Raiders to get him?  No one really knows the answer but it would be fun to see what unfolds if he does fall into the 20's.  It's developments like this that make the draft so interesting.

We need to upgrade the trenches and safety position way before a RB. This would be a head scratcher if Ballard took a RB with one of the first three picks.

To me it depends on who is the more highly rated player.  If Jacobs is really rated higher than any safety or DL when we pick I could see it.  It just depends on who is on the board when we pick and who has the higher ranking.

If Ballard has a RB rated higher then a safety something is wrong.

 

That would not be true. If Ballard and his scouts rate an RB higher than a safety, I will trust them over anyone on this forum. If the values are similar, I can understand a tie-breaker going towards safety but to place it as a "black or white" opinion as above is wrong.

Running backs to never are a dime a dozen. You can plug almost anyone in there when you have a good oline. Plus they don’t play that long.

    • I’d take him on a 2 year deal at max. He’s older and CBs seem to fall off a cliff at 30 exactly.
    • Where there is smoke there is fire though. If this happened every year then there’d be something to what you’re saying. This talk didn’t happen with Kyler Murray, Andrew Luck, Cam Newton, Sam Bradford, Matthew Stafford, Jared Goff, Baker Mayfield, etc...   I know the popular narrative is that this time of year things are quiet so people start just making stuff up for clickbait and retweets, but that’s not always the case. Everyone trashed the reporter that said he thought McDaniels was going to reject the Colts at the last second and look how that turned out.    And not for nothing, Cincinnati is a horrible organization from top to bottom. Their almost as bad as the Redskins have been under Snyder. 
    • After reading about everyones opinion about what we should do at QB I just want someone other than Brissett next year! Im scared he will be our starting QB next year!! I like the guy as a person but he is not the answer for us at QB!!!!!!
    • The conversation (that you jumped into) started with the debate about Teddy being a franchise QB. IMO, he is not, and is the basis of my opinion.    and... You don't have to explain roster management lol.... Instead of providing lazy anecdotal stuff, I provided examples of specific and easy cuts that could be made to save them 35M. And that was only looking at 5 guys that range from mediocre to dead weight. I've also provide examples of roster turnover that points out replacing 3 to 4 players in a given year cheaply via the draft is doable. You on the other had have provided generalities.    If Brees retired, I agree they would probably sign Teddy, but they'd also likely draft a QB.
    • He’s definitely not as bendy and fluid as Young or Chaisson. But I think he’s plenty athletic. Had over 1,000 career points in basketball in high school and won the state discus throw back to back. Plus he’d be a strong side DE. He’ll set a strong edge but also give you some pass rush. He doesn’t need to be the best athlete. Plus he can kick inside if needed and you can bring an extra rusher in on the edge. To each his own though. For what it’s worth PFF has him mocked to us as well. Agreed there, but you can have both. You could get an edge round 1 and still get a 3-tech in round 2.
