I find this interesting given the heat Ballard gets sometimes from many on this board for his draft moves.  Not all have panned out 100% but it is interesting.

For the most part, I think Ballard has done well drafting. I question some of the 2nd Rd picks, (Lewis, Banogu and Turay) because I don’t view them as 3 down players. I’m warming up to Turay cautiously, but his last game was quite impressive. CB gets a pass on Q. Wilson, due to scheme change. 
 

Ballard is getting contributions from well over 50% of his draft classes, which is impressive. Glad he’s our GM.

Long story short:

 

Colts Received:
OG Quenton Nelson
OT Braden Smith
DE Kemoko Turay
RB Jordan Wilkins
CB Rock Ya-Sin

 

Jets Received:
QB Sam Darnold

 

While Darnold has shown flashes, Indy acquired multiple starters and some rotational pieces from this trade

I don't remember anybody questioning the trade down with the Jets, from #3 to #6.  I think most would have questioned Ballard if he DIDN'T trade out of #3.

I don't think the article is accurate by saying that is the compensation from the Jets trade. 

 

Several decisions were made after the trade.   The Colts did not get 5 picks from the Jets in exchange for 1.

We were taking Nelson no matter what, so for us it was a clear win.

 

For the Jets, the jury is still out and will be for a few more years. 2 weeks ago it looked like a good move. After last week everyone wants to % on Darnold, but I still think hes gonna be a good QB for them long term.

Meh. The Colts won that trade from a value standpoint, and that was clear the minute the trade was reported. Like most everyone else, I think Ballard and Co did a good job with the picks yielded from that trade.

 

But the Jets made the trade because they thought they were getting a franchise QB, and the jury is still out on that. In eight years, if Darnold is a top eight QB and the Jets are going deep in the playoffs, while Smith, Turay and Wilkins are on second or third contracts with different teams, I think the Jets would be okay with it, because having a franchise QB is important in the NFL.

 

Also, it's frustrating and annoying to me when people write off 22 year old QBs with 16 starts, after a bad game against the NFL's best defense, two weeks back from a prolonged absence, playing for a bad team. It's too soon to say what Darnold will or won't be, and it's especially shortsighted to discuss his value after one bad game.

 

While I agree with all that, I certainly understand Jets fans’ angst.

 

In fairness, part of it may be lingering memories of quarterback busts gone by (Sanchez, Smith) — sort of a “Oh boy, here we go again” dread.

 

So, yeah, it’s too early to write Darnold off.  He absolutely has had some very good games.  And the team around him is pretty bad (though the picks they gave up to get him factors into that, too).

 

But you have to understand that most Jets fans were convinced they made a masterful trade and you don’t have to be writing off Darnold’s career to say that the early returns favor a different conclusion.

 

Quarterbacks don’t get 8 years to prove themselves in today’s NFL.

Its not the net result of the trade.  Its the result of the trade and subsequent decisions.    The way its presented makes it look like the Herschel Walker trade, which it was not. 

 

We didn't get Ya-Sin because of the trade.  We could/would have had him with our own 26th pick.

 

We now have a second round pick from the Skins, and another player to come and add to the list if you want, but that is due to yet another decision.  A decision to trade down with the Skins in a different draft.

Yes it is the net result of the trade.  The three 2018 picks we got from the Jets (which we turned into four picks) = Nelson, Smith, and Turay + Wilkins, while the 2019 pick = Ya-Sin.

 

You don't know who would have been picked with the 26th pick, so that's just a hypothetical.  And the trade with the Skins was for that 26th pick, which has nothing to do with the Jets trade.

 

Either way, Ya-Sin was a direct result of the trade, so if you want to nitpick, the Colts got Nelson, Smith, Ya-Sin, and a 2018 2nd round pick from that one trade.  Not Herschel Walker, but still a pretty good haul, especially when you factor in that Ballard turned that 2nd into Turay and Wilkins, with a net result of 5 players for 1.  :D

I didn't read the article from the perspective of Jets fans, and I never really considered how they felt about the trade at the time. I don't see what was "masterful" about it, even when it happened. Maybe they already knew the Browns were going with Mayfield, but I doubt it; the trade was done more than a month before the draft. So to me, they came up to #3 without knowing that Darnold would still be there. If Jets fans are worried about having drafted a potential bust, to me that's independent of the trade. 

 

I felt like the article was written from a "neutral" standpoint: this is what the yield has been for both teams, and it makes the Colts the winner of the trade. And I think it's too early to talk about the yield right now. From a value standpoint, the Colts won, but we knew that already.

 

As for QBs getting eight years, I'm not saying it would take that long for Darnold to prove himself. I'm saying if we look back on this trade and realize that Darnold is a really good QB who helps the Jets contend, and half the players the Colts got from the trade aren't even on the Colts roster anymore, our evaluation of this trade will be different. Jets fans will be fine with it -- IF Darnold is a franchise QB. Which is why the Jets gave up so much value in the first place.

I think saying it that way is inaccurate.   It is the net result of Ballard's decisions, including the trade.  He should be commended for all of those subsequent decisions too.  

 

The Jets did not give up all of those players to get Darnold because they weren't in a position to trade down from 3 and accumulate those picks to begin with.. They could not make the trade for picks if they got Nelson with their pick.  They could have never had those picks, so comparing what they got from the trade up (Darnold), with what we got subsequent to the trade makes no sense, IMO.

 

If you look at how the article is portraying the trade from the opposite direction, the net result of the trade would be the Jets receiving Nelson, Smith, Turay, Wilkins, Ya-Sin, etc. and we received (kept) Darnold at #3.   No.

Maybe I missed the thread, but I have not seen "many" on here give Ballard any heat for his draft day decisions.   Most of us are overwhelmingly supportive of his moves.

Ok, take the player names out of it, then.

 

Still a pretty good haul.

 

Four picks for one.  To move three spots in the draft.  The Jets could presumably have used those four picks the same way the Colts did, but that's getting into hypotheticals.

I agree.  I'm just looking at it from the Jets Fan's perspective and I don't think its accurate to say it that way because the Jets probably would have done something different with those picks, or not had the same picks.  They seem to be looking at it in an extremely negative light.  Ballard also used a Colt pick to trade up to take Lewis, which doesn't look so smart at the moment.

    • I could see us going for names when it comes to QB (Rivers) or TE (Hooper or Henry).     I'm kind of crossing my fingers for a Rivers/Henry package deal.    I don't think we will bring in Clowney.  Ballard might kick the tires a bit but in the end I think he's over-rated and Ballard will recognize that and will be outbid.  
    • https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/nfl-move-the-sticks-with-daniel-jeremiah-bucky-brooks/id915544088?i=1000466694211   Highlights: - Medicals is the most important part of the QB for GMs - Most accurate and best information helps you make good decisions  - Important to see how prospects handle the big stage at the combine - the more time we can spend with a prospect the better we can get to know him - we let our coaches get the full time in the interview (all 18 minutes) - they gonna present a play, they gonna teach a play, they gonna watch the play, they gonna watch some of the prospect's film and they gonna see if they can repeat back what information was presented to them. Just their capacity to think on their feet, how do they handle the information, and some guys will screw it up.... it might be their interview no.10 and they might repeat something they heard in another room, but it's really a great insight from coaching and scouting perspective about how they learn, what can they retain...  - we are pretty selective - we are in the elimination business - we are going to eliminate the guys that we know don't fit. There is a very strict criteria that they have to meet in order to get onto our draft board and we gonna take them. From a football and personal character stand point there are certain things they have to have. Are they all gonna be perfect? No, but they've gotta be able to fit into the team concept.  - always gonna be front driven. That's how I was raised in this league. I think over time it shows. When you are good on the OLine and DLine, it gives you a chance to win every Sunday. It might not be pretty, it might not be what the world always wants, but when you can block people and control the line of scrimmage, it gives you a chance.  - we are in sub-defense world now where you are playing nickle and dime defense 70-75% of the time. So speed allows you to make mistakes. You can make mistakes but still recover from it. We are playing in ideal conditions in Indy - great building, great surface so we gonna play to that. So we are going to evaluate and acquire as many fast players as we can.  - good coaches adjust to the strengths of their QBs... (this is on question about the new breed of mobile QBs entering the league) - having a player with unique and explosive skillset (talking about players like Deebo Samuel, Parris Campbell, Tyreek Hill) puts a lot of stress on the defense. On the flipside it's important to have versatile defenders that can match with players like that and be able to do multiple different things.    
    • That will be a requirement from the Colts, but not all teams want that from their players.
    • Alright!   We got the band back together on the OL.     If we are in the running to sign Rivers, our odds just went up.  
    • I think he knows that if he's going to try and play at an older age there is no getting around the fact that mentoring a young QB is going to go with the territory.
