Would you prefer? Alternate draft...

Recommended Posts

In hindsight, would you prefer our draft, or the following, assuming we don't trade our 1st rounder?

I just hate the fact for our first 2 games this year, we have to face picks 1 and 2 that were on my big board.

 

Reality:

» ROUND 2, PICK 2 (34th overall): Rock Ya-Sin, cornerback, Temple

» ROUND 2, PICK 17 (49th overall): Ben Banogu, linebacker, TCU

» ROUND 2, PICK 27 (59th overall): Parris Campbell, wide receiver, Ohio State

» ROUND 3, PICK 26 (89th overall): Bobby Okereke, linebacker, Stanford

» ROUND 4, PICK 7 (109th overall): Khari Willis, safety, Michigan State

» ROUND 5, PICK 6 (144th overall): Marvell Tell, cornerback, USC

» ROUND 5, PICK 26 (164th overall): EJ Speed, linebacker, Tarleton State

» ROUND 6, PICK 27 (199th overall): Gerri Green, defensive end, Mississippi State

» ROUND 7, PICK 26 (240th overall): Jackson Barton, tackle, Utah

» ROUND 7, PICK 32 (246th overall): Javon Patterson, center, Ole Miss

 

Alternate reality: draft tackles a lot more D-Line and O-Line, but much none for secondary.

 

1. Jerry Tillery (DT)

2. AJ Brown (WR)

2. Khalen Saunders (DT)

3. Bobby Okereke (LB)

4. Michael Jordan (G)

4. Foster Moreau (TE)

5. Kelvin Harmon (WR)

6. Isaiah Prince (T)

7. Gerald Willis (DT)

I'll go with Ballards picks.  He seems to know what he is doing.    I would have loved to see is with Tillery though

3 DTs? 2 WR? 0 edge rushers?Both of the WRs May be the BPA, but still, 2 of them?

 

and we don’t need 3 DTs at all. Tillery is fine, but with tyquan Lewis moving inside we don’t need more than 1 interior d linemen from the draft

 

And I don’t like at all how we don’t take ANY edge rushers. None AT ALL. I would not be happy.

 

Personally I’m just fine with Ballard’s draft

Our needs at DE are vastly overstated...

 

Sheard, Houston, Turay, and Lewis all are natural DEs.

Autry can switch to DE on running downs.

 All of us arm chair GMs don't know what Ballard and his scouts do. At the end of the day, I trust Ballard even though, this was by no means a sexy draft.

 

The final grades after every draft are to premature to even care about. We won't know how this draft shapes up for at least two seasons.

Arm chair GMs only know what they see from highlights on YouTube  and what the NFL “experts” tell them. I’ll take Ballard’s even though I didn’t know most of those players by name.

Each to his own but I like the one we had a whole lot better than the one above. Plus you have no mention of what should be a top 45 pick in what's said to be a very strong upcoming draft.

Sheard has one year left. Houston is 30 and on a two year deal. Lewis is not a DE in this defense  (just look at the types he drafted). Turay had strength issues last year.

 

I think there is definitely some long-term needs at DE. Colts are going to take a numbers approach it appears.

I like Turay a lot and I think he'll develop into a great edge rusher, but the point still stands that we need more than 1 promising young edge rusher. This draft supplied some.

Parris Campbell is a Jennifer Aniston from the 90s hot, super sexy pick in my eyes. I did a little scouting on him predraft, but after watching these highlights again knowing he's a Colt, pretty sure I pitched a tent.

There are some alternatives I may prefer but I have to say this one is tough.

 

Only because basically it appears the focus on CB's draft was on speed (in general) and on the secondary.

 

This alternative version focused more-so on speeding and athletic DTs for the DL (and not the speedy edge rusher types like Banogu) and on bigger WRs and not the shifty guy we got in Campbell. And it did not address the secondary at all. Not even one player there.

 

So I have to say I'd probably be more inclined to prefer what we actually did.

 

Definitely good names in the alternative. Just did not seem to fit what the staff appeared to be going for this year based on how things shook out.

 

 

I will be very curious to see if Banogu and that 2nd rounder from the Redskins next year ends up looking better than M.Sweat.

 

But otherwise, I think we did a solid job as is.

I’m a huge fan of Campbell. He’s raw, but fits Reich’s offense IMO. Super excited to see him catch some screen passes this season. Should be fun to watch. :headspin:

    • I mean... Just from personal experience: it's really, really easy to get hooked on that crap. I nearly fell into that path after my tonsillectomy... My family has a long history of addiction, so it's always in the back of my head to be extra careful.  
    • Personally, I think Dak is going to end up going the Kirk Cousins route and will end up being franchised twice before signing with another team in 2022. With the Mahomes deal, the bar was raised even higher for QB's. And even though Dak is not going to get Mahomes money he is is probably going to get between 37-40 million a year. Will the Colts be willing to pay that? I don't know, but I do believe that Dak will play this season and next under the franchise tag before moving onto greener pastures.
    • Texans traded for and gave Tunsil a 3 year extension to his rookie contract. I see them doing something similar to Watson after this year.  Thus Watson would play 5th year option in 2021 at $17.5 million, then get 3 years added at 31+ mil per season, with much (if not all) guaranteed, taking him through 2024.  This circumvents using franchise tags that would keep the UFA on the roster, but maybe sow derision as well.     Texans were improving as a group, notably toward the end of last year, and then added Tunsil.  Max Scharping at left guard and Tytus Howard at right tackle are no longer rookies. That group won't chase Watson away.     Never say never, but this more a dream then reality. Coaches that give up on franchise QB's get kicked to the curb. Even BoB knows this.
    • Also, has it ever occurred to folks that he may have played hurt last year?  He took some vicious hits against Packers and didn’t look the same afterward. You’ll never know if Rivers is injured because he’ll play through everything including a torn ACL. And he will NEVER make excuses.    With a great backup in Jacoby I hope he doesn’t feel the need to play hero. 
    • I get the weird feeling some folks would love to see Philip Rivers fail so that they can gloat they were right. I for one am optimistic. Gotta roll with who we have and win games, that is all that matters!!!
