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.

    • I had us 9-7 just based on guessing/hoping/predicting Luck would be healthy and play great. I was right but a lucky guess, I guess  . I thought that would get us a 6th seed. We won 10 games which got us in.
    • For the first time in a while, I am impressed with the Colts development of players. If this current trend continues, a lot of opinions will change. 
    • I had us going 10-6 and winning the AFC South. I knew with Luck back we'd be at minimum .500, and I thought by adding Nelson, Ebron, and Cain, our O would be pretty decent, and enough to take the South. We were 10-6, but didn't win the South.  I wasn't counting on our D being as good, so I guess they overachieved. Honestly I'm still not sold on our D. This year will be a much bigger test.
    • There appears to be a possibility that the Pacers acquire 31-year-old Eric Gordon, the shooting guard for the Rockets.   Houston wants Jimmy Butler but they don't have cap space to sign him. The 76ers would have to sign Jimmy and trade him to Houston. But Houston cant send the 76ers matching salaries because Philadelphia already has to sign Tobias Harris, JJ Reddick and soon Embid and Ben Simmons..   So the 76ers and Houston have to find a third team who could acquire some salary. In the theory of this trade: That team would be the Pacers who would take the final year of Eric Gordon's contract at $15 mil   Obviously, Gordon is an IU grad and Indianapolis native. He comes off the Houston bench behind Chris Paul and James Harden. 16.2 per game last year and 16.7 for his 11-year career..   Forgetting how crazy Houston's locker room would be with Paul, Harden and Butler, is there a downside to acquiring Gordon, who would start until Oladipo returns? We might have to give up next year's No.1 pick.
    • Here is a serious question, does anyone want to win the NL Central? I mean seriously  . We are winning it but just give games away like the Brewers and Cards do as well.
