Assuming

-We take an iDL as our first pick

-We don't move up or back in the draft

-Williams, Oliver, and Gary (tweener) are gone by 26

 

Who will the Colts end up with?

Just did a scan of Colts.com's mock mondays, and Dexter Lawrence was the most picked at 26. I wouldn't be disappointed, but would not be as excited compared to Wilkins or Tillery. I'd love Simmons, I just don't want to wait. Dre'mont is interesting too.

I feel like Jeffrey Simmons is the only answer at 26. Maybe Jerry Tillery.

I always wonder what the conversations with an injured guy like Simmons would be like (during pre draft interviews/meetings). You're pretty much losing a year of the cheap rookie contract due to injury. If you take him in the first, you get a fifth year option, but most players cry like a babe when a 5th year option is invoked.

 

If I were a coach/GM, I'd say "Mr. Simmons, we're going to take a chance on your injury healing, and let you sit a year, but we're also going to use the 5th year option and expect you to show up without issue"

I picked Wilkins with the assumption all were available.  I think he’s the best fit

Lawrence may not have some of the others pass rush but they don't have his run stopping ability, taking up blocks, pushing the pocket. He also actually does have pass rushing ability. Could even lose a little weight if need be. I think he's fine. Make a team one dimensional you can pin your ears back and get after them

I think book report dioramas.   Maybe Andrew will have him in his book club!

 

jk.  I don’t know.  It’s a weird negative unless it’s a nice way of saying he’s not into football

 

bryce love has said his main goal in life is to become a doctor after football but I don’t think that is a detriment to him. I think it’s a positive.

I'll go out on a limb and say that CB goes Lawrence with #26, and then SImmons with #34... Then a safety with #59, and we're on a solid base for the rest of the draft (WR, OL, Edge, and CB will round out the rest of the picks...)

he was class prez at ND. he likes to travel. interned at a financial corp last summer in Ireland IIRC. too smart for football. 

 

in short, he might actually have a brain or interest in things outside of the cult of football. DTs aren't supposed to do that...

 

he is, the most interesting DT in the world.

CB talks about special/ unique traits. So I think Simmons (and Brian Burns) fit that bill and I can even imagine him trading up for one of them if he likes them enough. 

 

I'd love a day 2 WR to stretch the field (M Brown/Deebo/Campbell) as I still have nightmares about the first half at KC.  

 

I think Ballard's going to draft linemen until he's satisfied w both sides, then he will truly go BPA.  After his epic draft achievement last year, I completely trust whatever he ends up doing.

If all are there, I take Wilkins 99% of the time and Simmons 1%. Like you've stated its unlikely though, so I'll go with Simmons (provided Dr's reports are good).

Pretty broad range of interests..... throw in a trip to the World Cup and I'd have thought you were talking about Andrew Luck. 

 

I'm good with Tillery at #26 if he's there.

World Cup rocks. I would not doubt if JT was a WC attendee. I honestly thing AL and JT would get along well. Both cerebral and quirky.

 

Just posted some info on JT from his interview this AM. Still beating the "other interest" drum, and critical of where he is today lol.

Im picking Simmons for the potential, but definitely against taking him in the first because of the injury. I have a feeling we take his teammate Johnathan Abram, I don't know why just a strong feeling.

    • As I said, it's never about "can you fit under the cap?", or "do you spend all your cap space?" Because you can fit under the cap certainly. Actually, you have to, that's the rule. And most teams do spend their cap space. That's the point. Use it all if possible. The Patriots use it all usually, the Steelers use it all usually, etc. Most teams do. Actually, the Colts do use almost all of their 2019 cap space too. (The 2019 total sum of contracts is a bit over 184 million, just a few mills under the cap. That "40ish cap space" is already nothing else but the rollovers from previous years.)   But, even with spending all the cap space, there is good cap management, and there is bad cap management. The Patriots spend all of their cap space, and they manage it very effectively. The Colts (now) spend all of their (excluding rollover), and I belive Ballard manages the cap very effectively. But the Jags didn't. They went over the line, and sacrifized their future effectiveness by getting into bidding wars and signing pricey free agents one after another. The problem wasn't Norwell. If it was only him, that would be ok. The problem was, that they also signed Moncrief for 10M, Jenkins for 6M, Church for 7M, traded for Hyde and payed him 4M and he barely saw the field, etc, etc. The list is very long.      I never said that having elite talents heading into their second contract is a burden. You are right, that is a blessing. Actually, that is the best that can happen to a team. That's what Ballard want's to do! The problem is, that the Jaguars got into a situation, when there is a very good chance that they cannot sign their own guys. And their roster got thin, because they could not refill it this offseason enough. They got worse. And they will become even worse in 2020, because they won't be able to retain their talent level. Yes, they can cut Campbell, they can cut Bouye, and they can trade Ngakogue, and fit under the cap. And then? Who will play at CB, who will play at DE? A mediocre somebody. So, instead of improving their team, they actually made it worse. That's the bad management. Cap wise and talent wise as well. (However, I do agree, that they kinda draft OK recently - one year exceptionally well, but still OK since then, so their talent infusion is somewhat OK. What they screwed up big time is cap management.)   Btw, this is an old story repeating itself. Coughlin has been with the Jags before. And he drove them into cap hell before. It was bad, it cost them years to recover. He's just doing it all over again. He is (was) a very good coach, but terrible at managing the cap.
    • https://www.1070thefan.com/blogs/kevins-corner/colts-coverage/colts-say-no-trade-offers-sticking-jacoby-brissett-backup?fbclid=IwAR0IGDgC2r_pBbt7tUzbQjxiBv0zfXiUyxQtxziGhcsvuaRHI3Or6xVIT74   I like Reich's quotes here:  “It’s impossible for me to have a higher opinion of Jacoby than I do,” Reich says. “I said it last year, I think he’s a top 20 quarterback. I still say that. After watching him for a year, this guy’s really good.   “I tell Chris all the time, ‘Please don’t let him go. I don’t care what anybody offers him. Don’t let him go.’ I love Jacoby. The problem is now I’ve gotten to know Jacoby and, at some point, I hope that it works out for Jacoby. But not now.”
    • How is the number of UDFAs significant to anything?     For the record, the Colts actually signed 11 UDFAs...JAC signed 21.    BTW, here are some of the "better teams" and the number of UDFAs this year:   HOU - 20 KC - 23 CHI - 22 NO -17 LAR - 19 LAC - 19   I see no clear correlation between "better teams", thin rosters and UDFAs. There is more of a correlation between the number of draft picks and UDFAs, if anything. Those teams typically had less draft picks...and therefore...more roster spots to give to UDFAs. And UDFAs understand this as well...and see a better path to making a roster if a draft pick is not in their way.   In 2018, the Colts...in the first year of a new offensive and defensive scheme...coming off a 4-win season...signed only 10 UDFAs...because they had 11 draft picks...which makes sense. But that roster was by no means deep.
