Rd3 P25) Damarkus Lodge WR Ole Miss

My guy! I really hope he slides and the Colts have a chance to scoop him.

Lodge is, in all seriousness, one of the WRs that I'd be happy with them taking around the 5-6 range. Feel like he didn't really get a chance to shine being a part of a WR corp that included AJ Brown and DK Metcalf.

Can you imagine the 8 WR sets with TY and Mack and Hines in the backfield? :rock:

 

Nah man, we'll most likely trade Luck for more WR picks, and let one of them play QB.

I see what you’re trying to say. I think you’ve misinterpreted what a lot of the board has been trying to say.

This is incredibly unrealistic since you didn't even take into account how the Colts are going to trade their 1st, 3rd and 6th to the Steelers for Antonio Brown!!!!

Not really. I get that people have different opinions than mine, and that's fine. No two people are going to have the same breakdown for what's going to happen this offseason. This post is just fun, and a bit of satire, nothing more. Most people on the board can't fathom that they are most likely gonna be wrong, in terms of the eventual happenings. I don't get it.

That group includes you. And that’s bad phrasing. It would be better to say MAY be wrong. Saying most likely wrong implies you have advanced knowledge of what’s going to happen and that’s not true.

That's just it man, I know that I don't know what's going to happen, and I don't pretend -like most here- that I know better than guys that do this (very well, I might add) for a living. I do this because I enjoy the prognostication, and I love Colts football. 

 

You kind of proved my point tho, by taking offense in your response. You honestly think that anyone on this post is going to completely guess how FA and the draft will shake out? Completely? It's not gonna happen.

Using Fanspeak, of course, difficult setting...feel like I addressed the team's only need (according to the board). Here's how it played out:

 

Rd1 P26) DK Metcalf WR Ole Miss

 

Rd2 P2) Marquise Brown WR Okla

 

Rd2 P26) Riley Ridley WR Georgia

 

Rd3 P25) Damarkus Lodge WR Ole Miss

 

Rd4 P26) Andy Isabella WR UMass

 

Rd4 P33) Hunter Renfrow WR Clemson

 

Rd5 P26) Anthony Johnson WR Buffalo

 

Feel like it's good in terms of hitting the teams only need area, because at all of our picks the only real value we're gonna be able to squander is at WR. I know Ballard keeps talking about pass rush and the trenches, but most of these wideouts are so talented they can likely play defense too. Love how realistic it turned out! 

 

Andrew Luck projected totals for next season: 7,347 yards 89 TD's 9 INT's 86% Completion Percentage (edged out for the league and team MVP by a WR)

 

BRAVO!     Well done,  well played,  sir!!

 

BUT......

 

As you know Ballard and I talk everyday....   and I can share that on good authority,  what the Colts will do when they draft Isabella is immediately have him put on 75-100 pounds to become the dominate pass rushing defensive end that Ballard says is the key to his defense.     So, it's not just all about the wide receiver spot.

 

Oh,  I see you didn't use the 6th and 7th round picks.    How about a developmental offensive and definisive lineman?     Unless, of course, you think that we need more receivers!   Then,  by all means,  go for it!!     :thmup:

Nah...I traded our 6th/7th and our next 4 years 1st and 2nd rounders for Lev and AB. It was a Steelers special. I'm good at this.

    • 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.
