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.

    • Like always, injuries will help shape the final roster.....   Unfortunately.....
    • One thing is for certain this year (on paper so far) we are going to either lose a talent on WR, RB or TE depending on what direction they lean on. If we keep only 5 wr’s thinking that Hines is interchangeable, we lose out on either Fountain, Pascal, Johnson or Rogers. If we think keep 6 WR’s, we sacrifice that by going 3 rb’s and give up on Ware, Williams or Wilkins. And at TE, you risk a cut to either Cox, Travis or Hetges.    Now some of these guys could make it to the PS but not all of them. Highly unlikely we would run with 2 TE’s but if they view DF in a split type WR/TE role, anything is possible. Could either Williams or Wilkins make it to our PS, idk. Every time Wilkins runs the ball, he gets 5 yards it seems, you would have to think another teams seriously takes a look at that option and we all know how much praise CB has poured out on Williams RB abilities. As for the WR’s no way around it, we are going to lose a talent from this pool. Johnson, Pascal, Ishmail, Fountain, Hogan or Rogers, all of these have a talent ability to make several teams rosters and be an upgrade to several teams. DF better ball out at a 13 million product for us risking losing one of these young talents or some fans will never like DF regardless of what he does if he is just average and then off the team after this season. He would essentially become the teams flogging project if he isn’t a star imho.

    • It depends on how many out of the current group they feel they can safely keep on the practice squad. I think 4 is kind of crazy, but when you look at keeping a plethora of tight ends and maybe an extra runningback on active roster, you start factoring Ebron and Hines in as receivers more than tight end and runningback, as we will likely see those two split out more than in a traditional role. That's the beauty of versatility. 
    • I'm pretty sure it's also 12 teams.  You will have to contact Colt92 about it.  I don't think the draft time has been set yet.     Typically if I remember right the drafts usually happen on labor day weekend.
