Post Draft mock draft

Recommended Posts

I know this doesnt do a bit of good but a good conversation piece. Knowing what players went where this is who i would have drafted with the same trades as Ballard did.

 

R2 P1 Rock Ya sin. I am still 100% in board with this pick and im not a big enough fan of the players drafted between this pick and the next to change it.

 

R2P2 A.J Brown. This guy is going to rock out and i hate the fact that we are going to have to play him twice a year now.

 

R2P3 Taylor Rapp. A very versatile safety who can do it all and has no problem covering tight ends and defending the run.

 

R3 P1 Bobby Okereke. I am still a huge fan of this pick. When he will start i still dont know but man oh man its nice to finally have depth at a position

 

R4 P1 Benny Snell. If we pick him we dont need to sign Ware. I think this guy would be the perfect compliment to Mack and Hines

 

R5 P1 Amani Oruwarlye. I understand why we took Tell but i would much rather have a polished corner capable of playing zone.

 

R5 P2 Joe Jackson. Personally think we could get speed later on in the draft and if it wasn't for Jackson terrible combine he would have gone higher.

 

R6P1 Kelvin Harmon. Was one of my top WR before the draft and incredibly polished but shouldn't have even gone to the draft.

 

And I am going to keep both o-line men drafted. This is of no offense to you Mr. Ballard but just something fun to see what direction everyone else would have done. Really interested to see what you would have done @stitches @Superman

The problem with this exercise is that I know where the players I like ended up being taken. For example... if I had to pick a player at 34 not knowing how the draft will unfold, I'd go with Hakeem Butler, but knowing he wouldn't go until round 4 I'd leave him for my 3d round pick. With that said, I would go strictly by my board here and as if I didn't know where the players I like would go. 

 

R2, P1 - Jawaan Taylor OT Florida, IMO he's a plug and play RT with the potential to be moved to LT in the future if we cannot strike a deal with AC (no. 10 on my board... the problem is he might have some health issue that made him fall and I don't know how to evaluate it so... I will just ignore it and assume he's healthy)

 

R2, P2 - Hakeem Butler, WR, Iowa State - the best receiver on my board. IMO future X-receiver in the league. The rare receiver that combines athleticism and size, YAC and contested catch ability. 

 

R2, P3 - Chauncey Gardner-Johnson, S, Florida - again, no idea why he fell... reports say he didn't interview well, I don't know how to evaluate that... so ... I'm just picking him based on what I watched on tape

 

R3, P1 - Julian Love, CB, Notre Dame - I had him ranked as an early 2nd so... I thought he was better version of... Rock

 

R4, P1 - Christian Miller, DE, Alabama - underrated EDGE defender in this draft

 

R5. P1 - Amani Oruwariye, CB, Penn State - another corner I think would fit well in our system. 

 

R5, P2 - Gerald Willis, DT, Miami - interior pass-rusher with great burst off the snap (he went undrafted, again - seems like off-field concerns that I am not in position to evaluate, so ...) 

 

R6, P1 Rodney Anderson, RB, Oklahoma... this one is for the future. Stash him on IR. Potential 3 downs back. 

 

So after conducting this exercise I realized that a lot of the players that slid by my board did so because of health and off-field concerns and in result I ended up drafting several of those. I guess if I had the information Ballard did I would end up not selecting them either ... 

 

In general I do like my draft better but I don't think it's a huge improvement over what we drafted so I don't mind it.

The way i did it was looked at the players taken after out pick to before our next pick to see if i wanted them more. I wanted to double dip and take A.J and Hakeem but decided not too. Satisfied we both the same on amani. I really thought we where going with Taylor with our first pick and i might wish that we did

26 - Sweat

32 - Murphy (a 4th to NE)

49 - Banogu (I don't necessarily get the pick but it's obvious they have a plan) 

59 -Campbell

89 - Boykin

Sorry.     This doesn't work because it doesn't add up.

 

If you stay at 26 and don't trade down,  then you don't end up with pick 49.

 

26 became 46 on a trade down, and from 46 we traded down a bit to get pick 49 to get Banogu.

 

The math is off....

You're right. Remove Banogu.

I’ll admit that I do this exercise after every draft....can’t quite help myself and it helps me realize how little information and applied experience we all have compared to the professionals...still I do it anyway.

 

I can see why you like AJ Brown, Rapp, and Snell but I felt like were outside the athletic metrics Ballard is using.  Brown is tempting but ordinary as an athlete...

 

At 34 I’d have taken Taylor, Little or Ford.  BPA sure looked like there was some premium Oline talent available.

 

49 and 59 I’d stand as is.  Wanted those guys based on pre-draft commentary...I’d have been good with Campbell at 34.

 

At 89 Okereke wasn’t on my radar at all...nor was anybody else drafted until the 4th round.  I’d have gone with Chauncey Gardner-Johnson or Anthony Nelson at 89...

 

By the 4th round I usually cry uncle and admit that I just don’t know anything...

    • I like Dillon, but he is what he is, a between the tackles RB with zero value to the passing game. 
    • Going into the season, I thought we had a very formidable 1-2 WR group with TY and Funchess.  I had higher hopes for Cain and thought Campbell would really blossom as the season went on.     Funchess got hurt for the year after it looked like he and Jacoby had nice chemistry week 1.  Cain wasn't the Cain the colts.com documentaries were making him out to be.  TY has been banged up for a good chunk of the season.  Campbell has shown flashes, but he's been hurt or injured almost all season.     On top of that, I thought Ebron and Doyle would be one of the most formidable TE groups in the league.  Ebron had multiple bad drops along the way and is now on the IR.  Doyle's had an all right year, but the rest of our TE's are nothing better than mediocre (at least at receiving).     While J. Williams also had a couple of good games, our running attack was without our #1 for a couple weeks and our team didn't win with Mack on the injury report.
    • LOL yes I have been an eyewitness to much of this, definitely don’t need to see it on YouTube to believe you. And I have had the unfortunate experience of wearing my Colts jersey to a preseason game once, definitely got taunted and that was only preseason! Only didn’t bother me as much because I grew up in inner city Philly so I was used to the rudeness  but no I totally get it, I never said the reputation wasn’t deserved. But since I am from Philly I just jump to hating Dallas more, just my personal bias 
    • https://www.google.com/amp/s/syndication.bleacherreport.com/amp/2638165-aj-dillon-displays-freak-athleticism-will-be-all-purpose-back-at-michigan.amp.html "Standing 6'1", 239 pounds, Dillon clocked a 4.56 in the 40-yard dash and a 4.29 in the shuttle. His athleticism (38.3-inch jump) and strength (40-foot toss) were also on display, earning him SPARQ (speed, power, agility, reaction and quickness) ratings MVP honors for a second-straight year."   https://www.sports-reference.com/cfb/players/aj-dillon-1.html   Freshman 2017.  1500+ yds Rushing Sophomore 2018. 1100+ yds  Junior. 2019.          1600+ yds   RB isn't high on my "Colts need" list, but A.J. Dillon is the perfect complimentary RB for this Team. Even at 249lbs he's still running a 4.5 40-yd and he doesn't get injured like Mack bc of his size.  
    • Dude, he didn’t play well when he had the starters playing. Face this fact, he can’t get past his first read, regardless of the time his oline gives him. He isn’t Manning or Luck and that’s always been clear,  ever felt he would be. I always thought he would be capable of reading more than 1 and maybe sometimes 2 reads but he hasn’t and at this stage, don’t think he can. He isn’t the guy this team risks the “with time he will get it”. He hasn’t shown growth in that area. Solid bench guy. Great team morale guy. Awful awful starter.
