Pass rushers are clearly very valuable right now. I think they come off faster than expected tonight because of that. Look at the draft capital teams are trading for proven pass rushers and the miney they are willing to spend. You get a top pass rusher this year, you get good production for 3 or 4 years and a hell of a trading asset at the end of their rookie deal if you don't want to fork the money over.

Agreed. I wrote that this morning on the Vikings Daily Open thread.

 

But this is the quietest it has been on the Colts forum on draft day.

Devin White is a reach. When you have several pass rushers available, you don't pass it up. You could have signed a free agent linebacker for a LOT less than what the top rushers were going for... 

 

I think he is a great player. But I don't think the value is there over the pass rushers that are gifted to the next several picks now...

Someone's going to get Rosen for a steal. With picking Murray, Rosen essentially doesn't have a logical roster spot and the leverage isn't there anymore. You can't have the QB you drafted in the 1st last year backing up this years 1st when they have completely different styles.

 

Rosen or Daniel Jones to the Giants? Maybe?

    • If we traded up to get Herbert, we wouldn't have Buckner and we likely wouldn't have Pittman, Taylor, or Paye.  You failed to mention what we would have had to give up and discuss other holes in our roster.    I don't think Ballard would readily admit he whiffed on Herbert, as we would have had to traded with or surpassed the Chargers and that would have taken a ton to give up, if it was even possible.    In 5 years, I believe the only players left on our team are Kelly, TY and Doyle. Ballard has totally overturned the roster.  I don't think it's fair to say he is bad at evaluating WR, DE or QB. He got a good young WR in Pittman, we should be all right with Paye and Dayo and perhaps Turay and Lewis if they stay healthy. Campbell has been good when healthy. And he hasn't really gone for a young QB who we'd expect to be a franchise qb.    
    • We didn't get fleeced, but at this current moment I don't think we made the best decision long term. 
    • I think if he allows Ballard to do his job he's going to continue to win.  And re: Reich he has grown on me.  Team needs a strong draft and FA period and steady the course.
    • To get Stafford, we would've had to do better than what the Rams gave up: two #1s, a 3rd & a player, likely a starting caliber quarterback, in this case it was Jared Goff, a #1 overall draft pick.
    • TBD is the answer.    But you need to have a QB in this league.  The Colts went after a guy who they knew had basically lost his team in Philly, but they know him personally, believe in him, and that matters.  So what you do is continue to build around him.   Let's get a nice passing game weapon added to the mix.  Fill some holes and coach him hard and if he's the guy they think he is he will do the work and find the success.
