My grade on this 2019 draft won't be a high as I hoped.

Recommended Posts

I don’t believe in draft grades until the guys play but on paper this draft looks promising.

 

They addressed every major area of need.  They added two corners, a safety.  A couple of pass rushers, a “van noy” type guy who can line up all over the field and be disruptive.  They got a speedy WR who should thrive in the Colts get the Ball out fast and let your player makers make plays offense.  Then they got a couple of depth olinemen late.  They also added another linebacker who should fit the defense well.  

 

Now we see if whats on paper translates to the field.  If it does Ballard hit another homerun and set the Colts up with an extra second next year in what should be a loaded draft.

Not really.  They needed help at the end spot and they took a couple of guys there.  They didn’t take a DT but honestly they are pretty deep there.

Four DTs is a lot.  A lot of 4/3 defenses only keep four DTs.

I posted this in another thread, but it might have to do with how much nickel we might be playing.

 

If our offense really takes off in the second year of Reichs' scheme, our opponents might spend most of the time playing from behind and trying to pass the ball.

 

So we might see a lot of NASCAR packages where Houston/Sheard/Lewis kick inside and Turay/Banogu/Green are rushing from the edge.

I forgot they have Ward too and he played really well last year until he got hurt.

Some people really should quit their day jobs and become a general manager. Just kidding. Why don't we let the experts in the Colts war room figure this out. I'm so sick and tired of people rating this draft anyway you can't write a draft until 3 years after it's happening. Everyone thought that Brayden was a big leap last year even thought he was a bust for a few games but look how he turned into a quality right tackle.

Why should the Colts care about what you want? You’re pretty irrelevant in their evaluation and drafting of players.

I think to many people live an breathe, to much on the media's fashionable picks, and get to caught up on individual players Vs players who fit our system and culture, that we are trying to  incorporate in our system, for their value at the pick. In my opinion,   Ballard is trying to keep the cap space ready for good players that we groom and make the grade from jumping ship , down the road after we groom them. Thus, less turn over for players, that fit our system, for now.

Really wanted D’Andre Walker in the 5th and instead we go EJ Speed who has had off field issues and wasn’t ranked near as high as Walker who helps provide extra pass rush.

    • that guy is too short, has no wheels, and has to take a time out after every 6 attempts. will never make it.. nice jugs though
    • The facts.. a hung jury (twice) mistrial with most voters having sided for the alleged accuser/victim... both times.     She (prosecution) didn't drop the charges, the school (judge/jury) did.  She wanted round 3.  She wanted a full yes or no vote (4-1 or 5-0) either way, not we're split 3-2 so we'll just call it against the majority vote and designate as "Not Responsible" because it isn't 4 or more votes either way. - 'Case closed'.     There were questions (and other items) from the accuser that were never allowed in or asked in follow up questioning.  I think one of the changes to the Stanford Title IX hearing rules is to also allow an attorney to be not only in attendance but to also perform all duties of representation.  And an outside group determines what is admissible as questions/evidence, follow questions, etc...     At some level, it did, and many things at Stanford were changed after. At the  minimum, it was a mistrial x2, with no conclusive verdict either way. Then school (not prosecution) drops the case.   So she really needed to report this to both the school, and also the Police.  But with what evidence does she have to convince the LEO?  Guess the gals need some hidden body cam w/audio these days, like many folks do with dash cams (like me and my wife's cars...) and be their own TMZ...   Video, apparently the only way things get rectified anymore...     No worries, at least we know each others positions.  All is good.     Except to have (at some level) differing story from a another high achieving Stanford student about another high achieving Stanford student-   https://www.collegesimply.com/colleges/california/stanford-university/admission/     We don't even know for certain they ever got the FULL story, but articles I've read suggest that the Stanford Panel repressed/disallowed many/most of her interrogating questions and supplemental follow up inquiries to be asked of the accused.  Unless someone directly asks her directly, how could you answer as to whether her whole story was even heard or not?   If you are not truly interested to fully know those answers, then you don't ask.  At least, that's my perspective.  
    • you and me both. the period between basketball and football sucks (base) balls. the only thing i'm enjoying now is the women's WC.   i'm still leaning towards thinking we'll keep 6 WRs this season given all the puts and takes. DF it TE-lite, Cain coming back from injury, PC a rook, TY coming off being banged up, Fountain improving, Roger's reliability and cross training..... and sheet might happen like Cain being pup'd and I think Fountain can spend another year on the PS.
    • and very hard to watch the D for all those games without him.... truly epic player with truly epic injury issues...   i know all teams go through injuries, but seems like we've been especially cursed with Sanders, Manning, and Luck. That's 3 of my five favorite Colts lol.
    • Ugh Hendricks sent to the IL, prospect Adbert Alzolay might be called up. Currently down 1-0 in the 7th.
