DHR's 2020 mock NFL Draft 1.0 first 5 picks only!


Recommended Posts

I know its way too early to predict where prospects are going to end up, but I watch a lot of college football and I can tell you the Colts could target all these players. These can change as the draft process goes along. With the combine, pro day, and players declaring in the months to come. 

 

 

RD 1: Derrick Brown DT Auburn. 

 

Hunt is getting up there in age, and we need a big physical Defensive Tackle to go alongside Autry. Brown can stop the run, rush the passer, and he's big and athletic. The type of defensive tackle this defense needs. He reminds me a lot of Fletcher Cox of the Eagles. 

 

 

RD 2: Yatur Gross Matos DE Penn State 

 

Tall, long, athletic defensive end who is quick to the backfield and can stop the run. Sheard might not get re-signed, Houston is aging, although this season, it doesn't look like he's slowing down. Put Matos on our defensive line along with Brown, Autry, and Banogu/Tyquan Lewis and you have a solid defensive line for years to come. 

 

RD 2: AJ Terrell CB Clemson 

 

He's tall, physical, is quick to break up passes when a QB throws to a receiver, and DUDE CAN TACKLE! I see a lot of Jalen Ramsey in his skill set.  

 

RD: 2  CeeDee Lamb WR Oklahoma

 

Again, with the uncertainty of Funchess, Cain and Fountain being question marks, we need another big receiver to go alongside TY and Parris. Lamb gives you that big receiving. This dude's hands are amazing and he can get separation from defensive backs. Reminds me of Hopkins. 

 

RD: 3 Joe Burrow QB LSU

 

This pick is only if Ballard and the team thinks Jacoby isn't the long term answer at QB. I like what I've seen from Burrow as a Quarterback. He has unbelievable arm talent and looks really poised in the pocket. 

 

 

 

 

What do you guys think of these picks? I think they fill four important pieces of the team. One of the picks depends on Ballard's confidence level in Jacoby.  Three defensive picks, two offensive picks.

Where have you been? There is almost no way Burrow doesn't go top 5 let alone number 1 overall. Id put money on Lamb going in the first round as well

4 of your 5 picks will likely be top 20 picks... Might want to do a little more research

Gross Matos is a second round talent. Derrick Brown is a mid to late first round pick. Terrell is also has a second round grade as well as Lamb. Why don't you do your research.

Didn't you guys say DK Metcalf would go 1st round last year and where did he end up? Same with AJ Brown. You guys overdraft WR's all the time thinking they're going to go in the 1st round.  The only WRs I can see going in the first round are Jeudy and Shenault. 

 

 

The expression of Maniac in my photo says it all about your replies.

Well....   in addition to all the other problems that have been pointed out, there is one more.... 

 

You have the Colts with THREE second round picks.   Métos, Terrell, Lamb.  

 

The Colts only have two second round picks.   The one from Washington and our own.    I don’t believe we have a third.

 

As for everything else,  the comments reflect the current status.    Burrow is currently one of the hottest prospects in college football.   Both Lamb and Matos  could go in the first round as well.   If you’re going to be thin-skinned about these comments, then you shouldn’t ask other posters to evaluate your picks.   You got what you asked for.

Oh boy, where to start....

 

I guess the good first. Derrick Brown is a great pick. I’ve seen him mocked to us twice before.

 

Now Matos is being talked about as a 1st round candidate. He’s seen right now as the 3rd best edge rusher after Young and Epenesa by most scouts. Slight chance he slips to the early 2nd

 

CeeDee Lamb could be a 2nd but I don’t see Ballard drafting back to back 2nd round receivers. 

 

Terell is not a bad pick, but he’s also been discussed in the 1st round 

 

The Joe Burrow pick is horrible. He’s a top 5 lock and there’s talk that he may be QB1 if he beats Alabama. Also you don’t draft a QB that early with the way Jacoby is playing.

Actually in my write up I stated that I would not not take Metcalf until the second. Take a breather man. I'd say as a group this forum get fairly close with our assessments so we arent crazy.

LB is more than fine right now. Maniac is a stud. Walker is a decent compliment to Leonard. Okereke is liability vs the run, but he's fine situationally vs the pass and hopefully improves vs the run. Speed is a project, but he's got a good ceiling. We barely use a true SAM, so no need to upgrade Adams or Franklin.

If CeeDee Lamb is available in the 2nd round...Ballard has to pick him. I loved the Campbell pick...but Lamb is a much better prospect...and also a different type of WR. 

 

It's all sort of moot...as I think Lamb will be a lottery pick when it's all said and done. I am all in on getting one of these stud WRs though in this class.

I don't see Ballard looking at LB until the following draft. At that point, Walker will be heading into FA and they will know if they have a 3-down guy in Okereke.

I agree, but I could see him going middle rounds if a really good MLB drops. Walker is what he is, but he is pretty solid. Okereke has a whole lot of work to do and I think he's simply missing lower body strength which isn't going to improve a lot IMO (he already had 4 years of great weight training). LB is also one of the most devalued positions, so it's one place I could see Ballard addressing in FA.

Burrow is gone with one of the top 5 picks if not the number 1 pick.

The Burrow pick wasn't realistically an option anyway if Ballard thinks Jacoby is this team's franchise QB  moving forward. Lets say Ballard wants to draft a Quarterback in the later rounds because he feels Jacoby isn't the guy or he wants competition. There are other Quarterbacks who could go in later rounds like Jalen Hurts and Jordan Love.

    • I see where you are coming from to some extent... but don't fully agree.  I think if you ask just about anyone who follows football and has for a long time to name the top 3 QBs ever, both Brady and Manning will be mentioned.  There are 23 QBs from the modern-era in the Pro Football HOF.  Several of those guys were not the best at their position at any point in their career.   Troy Aikman won multiple superbowls on absolutely loaded teams, but he was never a first or second team all-pro and was only a 6x pro-bowler (Rivers has gone to 8).  Aikman never lead the league in any major passing stat in any season of his career.  In 2008 Rivers threw the most TDs and had the highest passer-rating of any QB in the league, in 2010 Rivers lead the league in passing yards, in 2013 he lead the league in completion percent.  Aikman throughout his career was never really at the top of the league in terms of QB play (as evidenced by no first or second all-pro selections and never leading the NFL in any significant passer category) -- most would say Marino, Montana (early in AIkman's career), Steve Young, John Elway, Brett Favre, Jim Kelly, Warren Moon, and late in his career Kurt Warner and Peyton Manning were better QBs than Aikman.   That's one example out of many where guys who are in the HOF may not have been the top dog at any given point in their career, but still had a HOF career.  Compared to guys who he was drafted with who are likely HOFers, Rivers has better individual statistics than both Eli and Big Ben.  He was never really on an 'elite' team all-around (especially lacking a top notch defense like Eli and Ben both had during their SB wins).  RIvers beat Peyton in the playoffs and despite playing with other HOFers like Brady, Peyton, Brees, Eli, Big Ben, Kurt Warner, Favre, etc.. he made the pro-bowl 8x, and in 2008 when every one of those guys were in the league he still lead the league in passer rating and TDs thrown.     I get why post-season success can push a borderline guy (see Eli) over the edge.  But since Rivers has been in the league there have been 2 occassions when the QB representing the AFC team in the Superbowl wasn't named Brady, Peyton or Ben (1x Flacco with a loaded defense and 1x Mahommes who just had one of the greatest seasons by a QB in NFL history).     The level Rivers has played at, for the amount of time he's played, makes him a surefire HOFer (he's about to surpass Marino's records and the only knock on Marino was he didn't win a SB).  First ballot? Maybe... will he get in within a couple years of being eligible? Definitely.
    • Yeah, there are quite a few people that would not be in the HOF based on my criteria.
    • Seems unfair if it was once you signed a contract. That'd basically be an end to many players' careers. Players are rarely signed if they have a suspension of that length.
    • He's not right in the head. I honestly think something is severely troubled with him. If he can stay out year or two and prove he is serious about his recovery then maybe but not now.
