First off.......  I am NOT saying the Colts will pick this kid

(I think that he is off the board when the Colts pick)

 

But...........  This is a future ALL Pro (IMHO) at a position that CB covets highly

 

The Colts had max protect last year with an extra tackle brought in

 

This kid can play that and is a top receiver as well..........

 

I fully expect a DL pick at 26 ........ but if this guy somehow slipped to 26 (or 34), it wouldnt surprise me if CB pulled the trigger

While I would love a stud DL I would not be shocked nor upset about it. A great TE can really change an offense as we've seen around the league and with our own Clark.

Hock is more Gronk than Clark because he's such a good blocker too.

I suspect others see Gronkowski in this guy as well. So I think he’ll get the nod long before #26. But if he were still there, I can definitely see him as the pick. Much like Hooker being unexpectedly available two drafts ago.

The tape is worth watching

 

The guy is a roadgrader as a blocker

 

He dominated DL players.......  Not just a little DB.....

 

 

He is so tough to defend.... think about it

 

Because he will be a blocker 50-60% of the time..........  do you assign a LB to him? He will eat his lunch.

 

If a SS is assigned to him..... and he actually blocks..... the SS is WASTED for that play.... someone else is will be open

 

He will be inline and parked next to the tackle.  Its SO MUCH easier to disguise your play intention, when you have an excellent blocker AND reciever........... IN ONE PLAYER

 

This guy will be deadly

 

I dont expect to get him, but watch his career...... he will be special

I would have no problem with that!! A gronk type TE hopefully who can stay healthy would be amazing for Luck and the Colts

Hockenson is the 3rd best player in this draft behind q.williams and bosa. If he would be available at 26 it would be no-brainer to draft him but even with TE not being an highly sought after position in the draft he is going to be a top15 lock. 

 

Last year Nelson also only dropped to 6, although Guards rank a bit higher on the position foodchain, and teams picking around 10 will be hard to convince that level go past them even if the position isn't sexy.

If the TE is there, I would not at all be shocked to get him. Trade up, I don’t see us trading up for him unless it was for a 4th round or less and I don’t know how many spots that would allow us to move up. I wouldn’t be happy giving away any of day two picks to move up for a TE, I think those picks are reserved for a difference maker on the defense imho. If it happens though, I won’t bark about it, I  just think this team has to find that defensive presence first over everything else this season.

Imagine if the guy turns out to be Dallas Clark come on wtf GIF

Dallas was certainly great for our team, however, what if the guy becomes Detroit version of Ebron or say Colby Fleener? I’d say, at 26 pick, you start picking kids with flaws and concerns but still high ceilings and higher floors. I’m a huge proponent of best defensive player in the first few picks but if a guy of high potential lands in our lap, I’m not opposed to taking the risk. Either way, my job on the couch picking draft kids is always going to be safe, CB’s won’t if he misses more than he hits.

I completely agree. This year is a rare opportunity to fill several key defensive needs. The talent is there through the first 2 rounds. The Colts have 3 picks right now. I expect Ballard to stay focused and build that D.

Wouldn’t be upset with a TE at 26. Hockenson and Fant are both beasts. But the way Hock finishes his blocks and plays to the whistle is what would make him my choice. He’s got that tone setting ability that we’re building around.

Hockensoc is better than any TE the Colts currently have on their roster.

I could definitely see the colts trading up for him, if somehow he’s on the board around 15. He’s the best offensive player in the draft imo. Reich could do so much with him.

If he's there I wouldn't mind it. We need some more offensive weapons. If we don't, the Patriots will.

The success gronk, kelce, and kittle (who I wanted us to take so badly) essentially guaranteed this kid probably wont make it out of the top 15, but I'd be all for him

We get these threads every year we’ve picked in the 20’s....

 

IF (fill in the blank with a top 5-10 pick manages to fall to us, we should draft him!)

 

Ya think?

 

Well sure....   if Nick Bosa, or Josh Allen, or Quinnen Williams manages to fall us we should definitely draft them!   

 

What?    Too controversial?     :peek:

The most underrated TE in this draft is Foster Moreau. Devastating blocker and was WAY underutilized in LSUs run first offense. Tested very well at the combine and showed well at the senior bowl. 

Can be had in the third or forth round.

Is that Fabian's brother?

 

I really like the San Jose State TE...Josh Oliver. I think he's going to a successful NFL TE...reminds me of Jonnu Smith.

Obviously if he could be the best colt TE ever in that posters opinion wouldn't that mean clearly the best on current roster? Keep on reading bud...

Sounds like the type of player it's worth to move up to get.

I think it's weird that Hockenson is now the consensus top tight end but during the season all the praise was going to Noah Fant.

 

That said I don't think it's undeserved.  I have more confidence in Hockenson's hands than I do Fant's.  Obviously Hockenson is a better blocker as well.  

 

Tight End U.

 

Dallas Clark, Brandon Myers, Scott Chandler, George Kittle, Tony Moeaki, CJ Fiedorowicz, TJ Hockenson, Noah Fant

There isn't a snowball's chance in you-know-where that Hock falls to #26. He could easily be gone by pick #10. Bill Belichick would probably be willing to give up a bunch of picks and his soul (if he had one) to move up and get this guy.

Kittle...the one that got away. I try not to get too "if only" when it comes to draft picks...though some are just too tough to ignore (Rhodes, Hopkins, Collins, etc.). Ballard really like that TE group...and had three picks in a 8 pick stretch...and Kittle goes two picks after Grover Stewart.

 

Colts end up rolling the dice on Ebron...but I wonder if they do that anyways since Kittle would have still been developing. Imagine Kittle and Ebron.  

 

But the Colts luck-boxing into having Hock fall to #26 would make me forget about Kittle forever.

IDK . . . What would you rather have.  TJ Hockenson in the first round or George Kittle in the 5th?

 

Even if Hockenson is better than Kittle (which may be difficult considering Kittle set a record for yards by a TE with some backup QB's) you are still talking about a pro-bowl TE in round 5.

 

That said there is always those diamond in the rough guys who pop out and become stars despite being a low round pick and everyone looks at them and wish their team would have grabbed him.

I would rather have Kittle for sure...I just think Hock can be on that level.

 

Yeah...there's always guys that you can point to in the draft...but Kittle was a guy I wanted pre-draft and really thought Ballard would pull the trigger after what he said about the TE group (not to mention the Colts had traded Allen and only had Doyle as a legit TE on the roster).

I wish he would have too.  Would be nice to get some Hawkeyes on this roster again.

    • I agree with u.  People on this forum just look at stats.  I have watched the film and he is poor in coverage and gets blown up in running plays.  I think he is to light.  I also think Leonard believes his own hype and   is playing for stats.  Call me crazy.....but would not b surprised if we have 2 lbs ready to take advantage of their opportunities.

    • NFL Game Day in Indianapolis is finally here Colts Nation!    Our 2019 Indianapolis Colts are back in Downtown Indianapolis as they host the Atlanta Falcons in the first of four NFC South interdivisional opponents the Colts will play during the 2019 NFL Regular Season. Atlanta is playing a regular season game for the first time in Indianapolis in eight years, and Sunday afternoon's game is the 17th all-time meeting between the teams.   After two games the Colts are #2 in the NFL in Rushing Offense, and yards, led by  Marlon Mack with his 225 yards.   Also an interesting battle of quarterbacks, with the Colts Jacoby Brissett and the Falcons Matt Ryan leading their offenses. Atlanta offense also is sparked by WR Julio Jones and RB Devonta Freeman.   Indianapolis by far has the most current  winning percentage over any NFL opponent to start their home schedule of the regular season.   Colts lead the series at 14-2, and with their .875 percentage over the Falcons after 16 games.  Colts probably would have had a record of 15-1 instead when  the Falcons last visited Indianapolis.   Colts QB  Peyton Manning  though was sidelined the entire 2011 NFL regular  season because of his neck surgeries, along with Manning being placed the Franchise Tag.   Indianapolis will certainly perform better than they did when they played Atlanta at Lucas Oil Stadium (the building) back on November 6, 2011.  Falcon's Matt Ryan outdueled the Colts Curtis Painter and Dan Orlovsky with completing 14 of his 24 passes for 275 yards and three touchdowns.  Two of his TD's were in the air to Julio Jones from 50 and 80 yards, and 1 yard to Tony Gonzalez.  Defensive back Jerraud Powers 6-yard interception return for a TD in the second quarter, was the only score for the Colts as Atlanta defeated Indianapolis 31-7.   Indianapolis avenged their loss when they defeated Atlanta in their last regular season visit to the  Georgia Dome back on November 22, 2015.  Colts QB Matt Hasselbeck threw two separate TD passes from 7 yards and 2 yards to Ahmad Bradshaw, plus a 6-yard INT return by Colts LB D'Qwell Jackson, to help the Colts tie the game at 21-21 with 10:07 remaining in the fourth quarter.  Adam Vinatieri kicked  43-yard  game-winning field goal  with 8  seconds remaining, to help the Colts defeat the Falcons 24-21.   LOS's retractable roof could be closed to keep everyone inside cool and comfortable, for this afternoon's 1:05 PM Eastern Standard Time kickoff, because mostly cloudy skies at 84 degrees, feels like 85 degrees, is the gamecast outside the stadium area, along with 15% precipitation, 47% humidity, and southwest winds at 15 miles per hour.   Head Linesman Alex Kemp leads his NFL officiating crew to supervise the live game action on the LOS playing field between the Colts and Falcons.   NO injuries the Colts and Falcons players,  win your second game of the season in front of your loyal fans, and LET'S  GO COLTS!!!!!                  https://www.colts.com/game-day/2019/reg-week3/falcons-at-colts/            
    • I could be wrong, but I think he started slow last year as well.  It will come.  Our defense will shine this game.  Opening day they will be pumped!!
