Colts have 4 first rounders in CBS Sports re-draft.

Recommended Posts

Nelson. 

Leonard. 

Smith. 

Turay (surprising). 

 

Good to see the recognition.

They have a couple of curious picks in that re-draft.

Seems like the purpose of this article was to have Barkley conveniently fall to NE. He even put it in the headline.

I think the NE/Barkley thing was for clickbait.

 

Judging by the article, this guy seems like an Oklahomer...or a misguided Ravens fan. He has Orlando Brown ahead of McGlinchey somehow...and then has Mark Andrews in the middle of the 1st round. Both played at Oklahoma and both are current Ravens.

Not sure Smith's play would push him to the first round.  

 

Turay is interesting. . . he was getting pressure and sacks but he stopped seeing snaps.  

 

Leonard and Nelson for sure would be first rounders if the draft was done over.

Saquon Barkley going 23rd is the stupidest thing I've ever seen and totally invalidated the entire list.  Guy won Offensive rookie of the year with over 2000 yards from scrimmage and this list has hi at 23...  Every team in the league would take Barkley right now and that includes the Rams and Cowboys who both already have a dynamic back like him...

Turays decreasing role was surprising tho i assumed others were better at run stopping which seemed to be priority one on defense.  Curious tho.

I know the talk was we were facing more run heavy teams. Plus there is a rookie wall and he really didnt get a ton of snaps in college so maybe they are trying to slowly work him up? :dunno:

Turay will be a bit surprise in the next couple of seasons.

 

He was raw when he was drafted, think he's going to be a stud.

ROTFlmao...Barkley going at 23rd.

 

Not even Charles Barkley would go that late at his age.

I think he'd go in the 1st round if the draft was done again.   A starting O-line player who can play guard or tackle would be sought after.

What happened with Ballard's first draft which was mediocre

at best and last year's draft which was one of the best ever for

the franchise? 

 

Was it trying to find players to fit Pagano's system, poor scouts

or was last draft a lucky fluke?

Ballard's first draft injuries ended up than main reason you call it mediocre.

Not sure what you are trying to accomplish here, but his first draft was solid, and the last draft was obviously a great success, not like anyone expects that every year...  

 

2017 - Rd. 1 Starting FS, talented, injury issues.....

            Rd. 2 Enigmatic CB, they sometimes take time to develop, on track to                    start, this year, 3rd corner probable worst case scenario....

            Rd. 3 - Miss

            Rd. 4 - Miss

            Rd. 4 - Starting RB in 2nd year, nearly 1k in RBC....

            Rd. 4 - Rotational DT in 2nd yr, solid backup with potential

            Rd. 5 - solid nickel CB as rookie, Dime/depth CB in 2nd yr.

            Rd. 5 - Solid starting MLB by 2nd yr, talked about as "QB" of D by                            coaches and DROY teammate and others

 

That's not mediocre, it's not great, but is slightly above average, with room for improvement as it ages....

I too was puzzled at calling Ballard's 1st draft mediocre.

Anytime you can draft 8 players and 6 of them either start or contribute is a very successful draft.

    • Man I sure hope not.   He is average...at best.  I think below.   Nothing he has ever shown me has led to me to think otherwise.
    • Was just listening to Dan Dakich.  He brought up the idea that I did earlier.  That this entire ankle/leg issue could be a made up thing just as a way out.   Remember, he was fine after the season ended.  Zero mention of a leg issue . Then he went to Europe, got married, and came back with a 'calf'.    Huh?   Did he stumble and hurt himself walking to the altar?   And everyone who has seen him train this year?  Says he looks fine.  No sign of an injury.  Doctors couldn't figure it out.  Why?  No injury?     Went through those drills last week, looked great, and then he says that he thought it might be his last time on the Lucas Oil stadium field.   Makes zero sense.  Other than this has been in his mind for quite a while.
    • It's not nearly as bad, or as big of deal as you are making it out to be. Even in the stories I have seen and read today it's not getting that much attention.  The Colts not going after the money they could get back is what's getting the press.    The booing won't have any effect on FAs; If anything, the absence of an elite QB will be a bigger issue when it comes to attracting FAs.        
    • Yeah...I shouldn't have said active. I meant games he has appeared in.   But if you just look at active games...he will have played in more than half...which is still pretty incredible for a guy drafted into the situation he was. 
    • I do agree with Jimmy our owner too. Andrew isn't really being selfish when you remember all the millions of dollars he leaving on the table.   If you're heart's not in the game anymore because your body keeps betraying you, I could see why turning the page to something else seems appealing to Luck. You watch his press conference & can't help but feel for the guy & what he's endured since he first got here in 2012. He raves about Mathis, Wayne, Hilton, Adam V. The guy doesn't have a malicious bone in his body man. He loves INDY & her diehard fans. The guy is genuinely broken up emotionally over this decision man. He didn't reach it lightly at all.    The funny thing about rage & anger is this: It's only a burden to those who carry it & refuse to release it & let it go over time. Fans have a right to be upset just remember that no one was hoodwinked, swindled, or lied to here. The situation was abrupt, unexpected, even awkward perhaps, but I honestly don't think this news was withheld on purpose by anybody inside the Colts organization. Life teaches us to adapt all the time. The only constant is change & our organization will handle this change with professionalism, dignity, & a sense of renewed purpose like we always do.
