You guys sound like little Ballard mini me's talking 

about "value":D

 

And the people complaining sound like toddlers.

 

We should just wait and see how it turns out, but nope, it's draft night, so of course the forum is full of :HFire:  :HFire:  :HFire:

THIS is one of the most outdated views on the draft. There is nothing value-wise that should make a future pick worth less than a current year's pick. If I were a GM I'd abuse old time GMs who think f

Umm, I wonder if Ballard knew that?

Nonsense.

It's not difficult to see why a team would pass on the guys available at 26. All have question marks.

 

If the Colts don't really love any of them...which obviously they didn't...there is nothing wrong with the trade. Especially considering the Colts also have the 34th pick coming up.

 

Time will tell who is right but calling the move "dumb" is a heck of a stretch. 

Its dumb until proven otherwise all I can say is he better hit on those second rounders.

"In other words, a team could trade a fourth round pick in 2017 and reasonably expect to receive a 2018 third round pick on the market. A current fifth is worth a future fourth. No one really wants future seventh round picks because they hold almost no value.

This valuation of future picks is a representation of time value of money, which means that a draft pick now is worth more than the same draft pick in a future year."

 

What do I win

 

Ballard just mentioned in his press conference that he liked picking up a future 2nd.

 

You better send him this article quick. I don't know where he came up with his logic for assessing the trade value of draft picks but it must not be Pats Pulpit. He needs to understand how to properly value these future draft picks before another trade like the one made tonight is made.

I LOVED the trade down. Was praying Ballard got future picks since they are worth more next year and we can "stack" drafts. That's how you sustain winning.

Anyone think we take DK now with three 2nd round picks?

I hope not.  I don’t get the hype around him.  Honestly, if they go WR the guy I hope they get is A.J. Brown.  He reminds me some of Reggie and I think that’s what the Colts need to go with TY.

Not an argument.

I get the impression Ballard wasn’t really in love with anyone there.  This is what you do if you aren’t in love with a guy when it’s your turn to pick.

The trade back is solid. I have a feeling we will select an OT with one of those picks in RD 2.

That’s where I thought Ballard was going earlier this week when he talked about the LT spot.  He seemed to be hinting AC isn’t the long term answer there.

Only part of the trade I disapprove of was me wasting my time watching. Other then that I'm ok with it.

 

This draft broadcast also had me bored as well. Tough night being a Colts fan :grumpy2:

Picking up AJ Brown and Chauncey Gardner Johnson, or Juan Thornhill in Rd 2 would be real solid. If not AJ then my boy Paris Campbell or Andy Isabella.

AC is 30. Of course he isn’t the long term solution.But getting someone to develop that can take his spot in a couple years is smart.

After the job Ballard and his scouts have done so far I'm surprised at all the belly aching.  We will tear up the second day.... Just watch.

As soon as I saw trade down, I knew what was coming. The entitlement astounds.

PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMET:

 

 Maybe we should at least wait until the draft is over before we start getting so emotional that we start turning on each other...... WHOOPS......: too late!

Yeah that doesn't work here

Say the Colts come out of this with the following:

 

34.  OT - Ford or CB Williams or CB Murphy 

 

46. S - Rapp or DE - Winovich or WR - Brown 

 

59.  CB - Love or CB - long or WR - Bonkin 

 

plus have a second rounder next year?  

 

I think most would have signed up for that at 26, 34 and 59 without the trade.
