We would have to give up so many draft picks to get him.

Most likely but probably not on the same scale as the Mack trade.  There were other picks exchanged besides the two 1sts. to the Raiders.  Bears received a 2nd. back from the Raiders but gave up a 3rd.   It might just take two 1sts.  Who knows.   I can see a scenario where the Cowboys don't trade him during this draft thinking they can sign him.  Jones doesn't budge because he knows he still needs to sign Zak and Zeke.  The "impasse" stays in place and he refuses to report for workouts etc.  The drama and rhetoric builds and Jones wants no part of it.  He decides to trade him before the season starts.  This years Colts draft looks like another success so Ballard feels confident in trading for him.  Anyway it's just a scenario.  The Cowboys would be crazy not to get him signed.  But if he goes on the block I'm sure we will be one of the their target teams.

I wonder if the colts would wait to sign him until after the draft. Is there a running back that will compliment Mack in the third round or so that will give us more then Wilkins. Ajayi is defintly done in Phili with his IG story.

If we are going to draft another back he has to be better then Wilkins. Other wise it’s a waste. If we draft a RB it will probably be in the third round. Will we get a guy that can start and compliment Mack.

I would take Benny Snell

This is taking a weird turn. You can see both sides. If the surgery does not go well he could lose millions. The cowboys don’t want to give him a new deal until they know the surgery was a success.

 

 

20 million a year they want to pay him?  But he wants more??  Crazy money

Just on the offensive side of the ball alone...   we have far more pressing needs than RB in the 3rd round.

 

WR,  OL,  perhaps TE....   and also, eventually,  RB.

 

I think if we draft a RB,  it'll be in R's 4, 5, or 6.

 

Typically,  if you draft a back in the 3rd round,  you're looking for him to start.   And that's not what we want.    Mack is our starter.    We want to strengthen our depth.    That comes on Day 3.

Well then we might as not even draft a RB. We drafted one in the fifth round that’s already on the roster.

Maybe.   That's entirely possible.   A lot depends on how things shake out.   Can Ballard collect a few more picks along the way?    Hard to tell.    

 

Since we've not drafted this low under Ballard before,  it's hard to predict what he'll do.    I think most of us believe he could do most anything and it might not surprise.

 

Fascinating draft season.....

on a normal labrum surgery, it's a 3-4 month recovery per Dr. Google. 

i wouldn't sign him unless i know it went well. wonder how serious they doctors say it is.

I can’t wait for the draft. The draft is all new to me. Normally I am not  inteersted or care. I just care about the games starting in Sept. Ballard and this team this year have me really intrigued by it. I don’t watch college football so I don’t know who any of these guys are.

Blueshoe and Stitches are extremely intelligent regarding the draft, soak their knowledge in like a sponge. You can also PM me with any draft related questions regarding the Colts, and I'll do my best to answer. The draft should be a lot of fun this year with Ballard at the helm.

Agree on the type of RB the Colts look for in the draft. It will be Day 3 IMO and complimentary to Mack and the gang. 3rd down pounder; can block; can catch. Lots of guys like that available from the 4th round on.

I'm exactly the same this year! Its hard, living on the other side of the world, to get any coverage. But im reading everything I can. 

My boss even commented that I'm becoming addicted to the Colts. I told him its too late, became addicted years ago!

Luckily he doesn't mind me spending all day at work on here!

    • I would, he's been a flag magnet as of late.
    • I agree.  We should make it at 10-6 but 9-7 looks iffy.  But we will likely see the #2 seed unless we ca win 11 games.  Eason should start if we miss the playoffs because Rivers will be done.  I think that would also see Jacoby back as the backup.  I can't see him being signed to start elsewhere, certainly not paid starter money.  
    • What a boss. Finds out he has cancer but still shows up to work on Sunday. Dude is gonna beat it and come back better than ever. 
    • Only if we lose 4 straight or are out of the playoffs.     We should finish no worse than 9-7.  That may not make the playoffs though as a wildcard.  We have to not only pick up 2 games over TN in 5 games, we'd also have to beat their AFC record.  We have 5 AFC games left, they have 3.  We have 2 less wins in the AFC.  We have to win 2 more than them, so if they say win 2 of their 3 AFC games, that is no possible without sweeping the season.  We are screwed on so many tie breakers right now  If we get eliminated from the playoffs, Eason should immediately finish the season unless he is simply not cutting it, then Brissett should because no playoffs, no Rivers.     I think we could win 3 of 5 however and be a Wildcard. I don't love our chances at 10-6 though with all the tiebreaker losses. Cleveland is likely in with their easy schedule. Baltimore has the tiebreaker. LV may play themselves out of it so that would leave us as the 6th or 7th seed.  KC or Buf/TN.  We may yet get revenge on TN.  I would pick us with a full roster rematch.  
    • You dislike Philip Rivers? You have since he was in college? Couldn't really tell from your post, but you're not Tiffany's high school boyfriend or anything are you?
