I'm good with it. I like him a lot more than the other OSU guy I thought we'd take, McLaurin. Solid pick.

Nice! I think he'll work well in our offense. He's a really good YAC guy.

Terrific pick. I don't know what's happening with DK though. It has to be something with the medical. If people are crying about DK running routes, I don't know why those people would be happy that we drafted Parris Campbell.

 

I like DK and Parris Campbell. Early 2nd round pick for me. We're getting a lot of people that need development, but have crazy potential. Campbell fits that to a tee.

Wanted CGJ but hearing he's dropping due to character concerns. I like this pick if Reich and Sirianni have a plan for him early on.

Going into the second round I said the Colts should take WR, DL, CB.

 

Boom!  3 for 3.

 

Good job Ballard.

It will be interesting to see how the Colts use him.

 

He certainly adds a new element to the offense. Big play ability.

Yes. Yes. Yes. This cat is perfect for Andrew Luck and this offense. Frank is tapdancing with the matchup problems his offense is going to have from day 1.

Does Campbell come in and take over slot duties (or at least split time with Hilton there)? Seems like his speed could be extremely helpful for us in the slot.

He actually can catch the ball......  very few drops

 

He runs a jet sweep like no other.........

He runs  a lot of short routes the opposite of TY.  I think he will compliment TY and Funchess very well.

He was mainly in the slot at OSU.......

 

We will be tough to defend with he and TY on the field......  The safeties will be WAY back

Hilton, Funchess, Campbell, Cain, Rogers... Some nice depth for us at WR now.

 

Really nice WR room and all receivers have complimentary skillsets. And also Ebron and Doyle to help out too, Hines out of the backfield.

 

That's plenty for Luck and Reich. We will have a top 5 offense next year.

OMG...Ballard is inside my head tonight.  I’m absolutely loving this draft right now.  Parris will be a stud in Reich’s offense with Luck gunning it.   We are now more explosive on offense.  

 

DT in the third...maybe Khalen Saunders.  Need someone who can pressure the middle.

After not getting Brown this was my top choice of what was left.  I LOVE it.  Outside of safety and maybe OT the Colts have addressed their major needs all in the second round of the draft and got an extra pick this year and next year to boot.

Great pick. Can't wait to see how Frank and Nick use him.

 

Having TY to teach him route running is an added bonus.

    • You make good points on this. The Pats have good reason to be skeptical of the Texans here.   I was more talking about the specifics of Caserio's contract that prevent him from interviewing with another team. But evidently the NFL approved it...
    • Isn't that also true of the candidates that you think teams are in a hurry to hire in January?     You could have said the same about Ballard in 2017. He got beat out for the Bears job by Ryan Pace, so he was a leftover. When the Colts job came open, and he was considered the favorite, and media outlets spoke of him as one of the most coveted candidates on the market. (Irsay is prone to hyperbole, but he called him the most prepared GM candidate ever; it's not likely that Irsay felt Ballard was just a "leftover.")   My point: There are always good candidates. Same is true for head coaches, assistants, etc. It's shortsighted and hysterical to act like there are no good GM candidates on the board in June. The guys who you say teams will be rushing to hire the following January are on the board in June.     Not sure why you're arguing this. It's pretty obvious that Caserio is the guy they wanted; they look to have canceled their GM search for now, which suggests that they're going to wait until Caserio's contract expires after the 2020 draft and attempt to hire him, pending further developments.   And to my point, he was not hired in January, so the desire to get a good candidate (or the guy you want) doesn't require making these moves in January.     I guess I could have phrased that differently, but what I said was they keep virtually all their staff in place, meaning they might change a piece or two in Year 1, but most of their staff remains the same in Year 1.    But I did say that's typical, which left room for outliers. And I was speaking about GMs that take over the job in January, not after the draft (or later, like Gettleman and Dorsey, recently).    If that came across as overly dogmatic, I didn't intend for it to be. But I stand by my point that it's typical for a new GM hired in January to keep his staff mostly in tact for that first player acquisition cycle, and make changes at some point after the draft. This is what Ballard did, keeping Jimmy Raye until June, then hiring Dodds and Hogan. There are other examples.      This is what I reject. Firstly, it doesn't matter. Things change. I don't think I need to say much more on that. Secondly, we have several examples of teams in recent seasons changing GMs outside of the typical Black Monday in January window where big changes are traditionally made. Chiefs fired Dorsey in June, Panthers fired Gettleman in July, now Jets and Texans. I'm not saying it's a trend, just that it's not as rare as you make it out to be, at least not recently.     To the bolded, I didn't really give this a lot of thought in 2017, but it's hard to know how much difference it would have made. Ballard went through his first cycle with another GM's right hand man and front office staff, for a coach that he didn't have any experience with. Ballard's approach was noticeably different in 2018.   This might seem half-baked and out of nowhere to you, but it's not. I jumped into this debate with the same viewpoint on Reddit a couple weeks ago, and kind of transported my thoughts into this thread, but didn't start from the beginning. In the other conversation, I think my initial post was something like 'recently I've been thinking that this is a better time period to hire a GM...' If I had posted my thoughts that way here, maybe you would have understood where I was coming from a little better.   That said, it's not just an impractical rambling that I haven't thought through. I don't know if there's any way to prove that one way is right and the other is wrong; I'm stating my preference, strongly.   My primary argument in favor of hiring a GM in June instead of January -- which you haven't addressed -- is that the work that goes into free agency, the Combine, pro days and the draft starts way back in the fall, if not sooner. When you hire a GM in January and give him six weeks to prepare for free agency, eight weeks to prepare for the Combine and pro days, and three months to prepare for the draft, that GM is not operating at full capacity. He would be better equipped if he started the job the prior June.   Do you think that's a weak argument? If so, why? I think that's an easy starting point.   I said earlier, if the Texans had waited until January 2020 to fire Gaine, all this criticism wouldn't exist. And the only practical difference is that they would have handicapped their new GM. (This is a more effective argument for the Jets, since the Texans are apparently not hiring a new GM yet.)   Like I said in my first post in this thread, imagine if the Colts had hired Ballard in June 2016 instead of January 2017... I'm sure people would have been critical, wondering why we let Grigson run the 2016 cycle if we were going to fire him, but imagine how much better prepared Ballard would have been for his first cycle with an additional six months on the job. 
    • Ballard's pre and post draft videos are Must See TV.  He truly is Dialed In. With my old memory, i will be able to watch them again in a few weeks and enjoy them. Like watching Andy Griffith maybe, it just never gets old.   The look and words from Frank about getting Campbell was Great.  He is so pumped.       
    • Although I will say didn’t we almost beat the eagles last year?
