What almost all the D draft picks have in common.... besides great character

Recommended Posts

With reading up on them with the interviews with Ballard, Reich, and the scouts I picked up on a trend on their traits....they're all smart, athletic, fast, and have long arms... definitely going the Seattle D route it seems. 

 

Good article on Indy Star with the scouts and that's what they said about all those players.....one comment that struck me with the scout who did Khari Willis....he said slow safeties will get you beat sometimes and dumb safeties will get you beat all the time.

 

Colts are in good hands for sure.

That's a good quote and I agree. A smart guy who may be slow might get beat ever so often. But dumb safeties will get you beat all the time. So how about dumb safeties who are fast? Same principle?

That one is easy, SPEED.  We didn't draft anyone slower than a 4.6 40 until the 7th round.

And the only reason why our 7th round picks were Slow is because they were O linemen haha

Yes u can but those usually go high in the draft.  I wanted Savage but he went early.  All the other safeties had warts.

I'm convinced that Savage was his choice at 26 and the trade talks started from there....

i thought it was somehow Hollywood Brown there was a delay after he was picked and then there was a trade. But Savage might have been targeted as well.

You think Savage, others believe it was Baker, and still others are comvinced it was Hollywood.    And some of you may be right.

 

All I know us that Ballard didn’t like any of them enough to move up in a trade to make sure he got them.   If they fell to the Colts — great.  But he wouldn’t give up a pick to make sure he got them.    

 

And I’m ok with that.

I think it was Jacobs....i think his time with Reich just hanging out shooting hoops was a predraft character check and Jacobs is the power back the Colts lack to help with Reich's goal of improving the running game.

    • Plus none of us know what he is thinking right now. He may have love and Herbert right up there and want to take them. He may not like them. But if he does love one of them or both he needs to get in position to take one. No one knows what next year will bring. We have the extra draft pick to do it so if they have some one they want go get him this year. We need to get to that 3rd or 4th pick to make sure we get the guy we want.    It would be fun if we traded up before the draft and know we are taking a QB and having fun speculating who it is.      
    • Lol!  That is freaking funny, man.  Love it.
    • Gordon hit on some shorter throws. Nothing he did answers the questions about his arm strength. However he does get the ball out quick and throws with anticipation. He had a nice TD on his back foot with a fade to the corner of the endzone.   Love and Herbert looked in control.  Loves two long passes were on the WR.  They were beautiful throws. One was like 50 yards on his back foot and was just effortless while the pocket collapsed. He had a lot of hand offs to the RB. He had a couple nice shorter throws in the fourth.   So no I don’t think Gordon did anything that made it look like he outplayed them. All three did what they needed to. They didn’t hurt or help their draft position.
    • It really is a terrible set of cards to be dealt. I trust Ballard to do the best for the franchise even if it cost him his job. If BPA is a blue chip position other than QB, my money is on Ballard drafting that player.   Reaching for a QB is always a roll of the dice but I expect Ballard to stay true to his board and avoid it.  A lot will unfold between now and April so all this is speculation 
    • Couldn’t narrow down 5 so here’s my top 10:   1) Chase Young 2) Isaiah Simmons 3) DeAndre Swift 4) Derrick Brown 5) Jerry Juedy 6) Jeffrey Okudah 7) CeeDee Lamb 8) Joe Burrow 9) Jonathon Taylor 10) Jedrick Wills
