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.

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.

    • I actually thought this thread would be about having the 32nd pick in the first round of the NFL draft. That would ensure that the player would have a 5th year option for us as opposed to the 34th pick or later picks, where we only have 4 year contracts.
    • This is a terrific question and a fascinating thread.  I don't have a full understanding of how compensatory picks work, but draft capital seems to be king now (especially in light of the rookie salary cap vs. out-of-control free agent contracts).  We didn't need the NFL to tell us the Colts had the best draft class of 2018.  I have reason to believe more good decisions will be made in FA and draft 2019, so this is indeed an exciting time.     Based on Ballard's 2 grand slams and other fine picks last year, you bet I'd buy a 3rd rounder with a viable backup QB.  You can't make Keenum's arm stronger and I don't know if even Luck can make Bortles more serious about football, but just having one of them aboard means you could warm up to Brissett offers and jockey for position in April.     I guess you'd have to take a look at your big board vs. team needs, run the numbers, and start wheeling and dealing accordingly.  This "game within the game" stuff is truly fascinating and probably one of the reasons I enjoy Fantasy Football so much.  Thanks for your post Superman.  Good stuff!
    • Maybe Jachai Polite will fall or even Devin White. There's some decent options at the #13 spot. Not sure if Montez Sweat is worth the #13 pick, but he might be with the combine and pro day coming up.
    • He brought in so many talent potential lads into the Shoe last year. These no-name guys are quickly becoming recognizable faces.    Gotta say that last years draft was amped with talent for many levels and positions. Some potentially playoff caliber quarterbacks too.   This year’s draft will be interesting as it could pose a challenge for most teams outside of the top 10. 
    • Maybe Denver or Washington due to cap space. I'm hoping we get a player in return if he ends up going anywhere. I wouldn't complain about getting a pick either.    I can get behind this but not just for DeAndre Baker maybe a pass rusher or interior D-line will fall.
