***If*** the Colts want to trade up in the 1st Round....

I REALLY don't want to give up either of our 2nd rounders.  I think there will be a TON of value in that range and the Colts are sitting pretty there.  But I would not object to giving up a 3rd rounder to move up several spots if the player they like is sitting there.

 

I don’t think there’s any chance Ballard gives up his 34th overall selection. That’s basically a late 1st.

And lets put a potential trade back options based on the trade chart:

 

Option 1. Trade down to end of Round 1 - LA Rams trade

26(700)=>31(600) + 99(104) - this is a comp pick in the 3d.

 

Option 2 Trade down to upper part of R2 - Buffalo Bills

26(700)=>40(500) + 74(220)

 

Option 3 Trade down to middle-end part of R2 - Philadelphia Eagles trade

26(700)=>53(370)+57(330)

 

Option 4 Trade down for future 1st pick? How do you guys feel about this one? Lets say New Orleans love some of the QBs at the end of the 1st(Daniel Jones for example) and they want to secure him to be their long-term replacement for Brees, but want to get ahead of OAK, NE or some other team potentially trading up at the end of the 1st in order to get him. So they offer #62 + their 1st round pick next year. Do you take it? 

I believe that we wont overpay to go get someone

 

If anything, we may go for more picks....

 

I think there are quality players in round 2-3

 

Option 4 is good

Option 1 or 2 are preferred

 

I like option 1, as I think one of the DL that we MAY want are still there

 

Tillary, Lawrence, and maybe Polite, of which one is still on the board

In another thread on another page,  poster @Doug Dew talked about what it would cost to move up.    And he did the math.    It was a good post,  but I think it's lost in that bigger discussion.    So, I thought it would be a good idea to bring his info here to a new and separate thread here on the Draft Page where more eyes can see it.

 

Currently, our pick 26 is valued at 700 Points.

 

If Ballard decides he has 4 picks in the first three rounds, so he has one extra to play with and he wants to target someone,  here is what it would cost the Colts to move up.   

 

Pick 34 is valued at 560 points.     That would give us 1260, which comes out to Cincinnati's pick 11 at 1250 points.

 

Pick 59 is valued at 310 points.     That would give us 1010, which comes out to Carolina's pick 16 at 1000 points.

 

Pick 89 is valued at 145 points.     That woud give us 845 points, which comes out to Pittsburgh's pick 20 at 850 points.

 

To be clear,  teams are not bound to the draft board points value chart.   But most teams roughly follow this.    This is an approximation for what a trade might look like.    If we trade up,  I can see Ballard trading one extra pick.    A 2 for 1 deal.    But I do not see him trading a 3 for 1 trade and losing 2 picks.    That would not be a Ballard-like thing for him to do.

 

Anyway....   the props on this post go entirely to Doug.    He's basically the author.   I just summarized it here for what I hope is a larger audience.

 

Tip of the hat to DD!        :hat:

 

 

Excellent post!  This really breaks down the process very well and even the most pedestrian fan can understand it. Well done by you and Doug Dew.  Personally I hope Indy holds on to their picks as 4 picks in the top 89 is bound to bring in some fine talent!

    • Simple reason. KC was missing the things that gave them their strength and identity. We were/are missing things that we didn't use well or often when healthy, and continue not to utilize them even when they are open.    If a baseball team is known for having bad pitching, but great bats, does it matter if their pitcher is out? Or is it worse if their #1 hitter is out?   And LOL at the other stuff. I'm sure I can guess who the pearl clutcher (s) is (are). One in particular is stalkerish via unsolicited PMs. I could care less what they or others think, especially if it's the one or ones I suspect. Questioning my fandom is pretty darn funny though. I'm not a fan because I disagree with certain narratives... sure... 
    • Florio is a *. He has no inside info. What he said was stupid.  If   their guy is there they will take him. They will not reach for a QB though. I do not see them taking a QB that late. What would be the purpose. They still have Kelly if they want a young backup. I doubt they take that big of a risk hoping a 3rd or 4thtd QB becomes the franchise.
    • I don't know if this has been discussed anywhere else on this forum but regarding Kelly and others, Reich and Ballard are always harping on competition and position battles to build a stronger team. It seems to me the 2 weakest areas on this team are the 2 they haven't allowed any competition, qb and kicker. Just an observation. I can't complain about being 6-6, I thought we'd go 11-5 or 10-6, just couldn't get it done in key moments of some games(the qb and kicker really let us down at times). It's not over yet though, if we can win out we still have a chance at the post season.
    • It was definitely not a good story ending for the underdogs, or a triumphant tale like Rudy, that's for darn sure..... All kids should have a similar experience though lol... It's a welcome to reality moment.    Finding tape on guys is much much easier that it used to be. I'm definitely no expert though. I'm just someone that prefers stats and film to watching a bunch of brainless TV shows lol.  It's more of something to do around the draft/FA period when there's not football to watch. To me, the more you know, the more interesting the season is. Also the more realistic you are about some guys.
    • To get this back on track. The more I read and hear from so called experts. It would not be shocking that Ballard just continues to build around JB and draft a QB in like round 3-4. You hear Florio say that the Colts are happy and moving forward with JB.
