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.

    • Not if we re-sign AC to a multi-year contract.   And I think there’s better than a 50-50 chance of doing that. 
    • They have a replacement in Okafor for Davis. Both him and Randle played well down the stretch while Davis was out. Randle is a guy I would potentially look at as well. With NO obviously going after Zion, Randle has already turned down his player option and is a FA. If Thad turns is no longer and option, I think Randle would be a good fill in at PF for the Pacers. 24 years old and averaged 21 and 9 playing off the bench half of the year last year.    It would be nice to unload McDermitt's contract and put that extra 7.5M/yr elsewhere.    As I said earlier in the thread, we have quite a few holes to fill on a capped budget and I wouldn't be surprised if some of these guys (Thad, Bogy, CJ) decline offers from the Pacers and move on. 
    • I think you will see another WR drafted....or a TE. Funchess will likely be gone...Hilton is a year older. Even if Cain and Campbell are both what they hoped for...there is still room to develop another Day Two pick at the position. We will see though.
    • Agree. It's just the logic that gets me. It's wishful thinking (or homerism) to think that Foles doesn't impvoe a Blake Bortles-led offense.   And had Luck not come back healthy...I would bet there is a pretty decent chance that Foles is a Colt. But I am grateful that he did.
    • Interesting. The Colts are #1...but the LAR are #2. Two distinct roster building styles.   I think SF gets a bit slighted here. They have a great HC and a young QB who was lighting it up before getting hurt. He should be able to return just fine...and they have a ton of young talent and cap space.   Honestly, NO has a lot of young talent..but an older QB.   "Set up for the future" doesn't really mean as much in the NFL as it does other sports...unless you are Patriots (and the future doesn't really seem to matter). But it's a better place to be than not.
