Would Love This Draft

Recommended Posts

Indy has already signed Reggie Wayne and Cory Redding, and I also have them signing SS Tom Zbikowski and either NT Antonio Garay or NT Aubrayu Franklin.

2012 NFL Draft...

1st- QB Andrew Luck (I think he will do better than most people think. He is studying under the same guy who coached up Cam Newton before his rookie year, and Luck has much better pedigree to play the position. He will make our offensive players look better than they are, same way Peyton did.)

2nd- CB Dre Kirkpatrick (There are certain players I could see falling a little, and Kirkpatrick is one of them. The CB class is pretty good this year. I could see Claiborne, Janoris Jenkins, Josh Robinson, and Stephon Gilmore going before him. Add to that Kirkpatrick's slow 40 time and some minor character issues could have him fall to us at the top of the 2nd. Would love to see a talent like this fall to us and give Pagano someone in the secondary to mold into a very good CB.)

Trade - Indy allows Freeney and his agent to work out a new extended deal with a trade partner, and this trade could happen before or during the draft. We trade Freeney to NE for one of their two 2nd round picks(48th overall). Trade makes sense for both teams.

2nd(via trade)- TE Coby Fleener (We now have a big target at TE and a guy who is fast for his size. Not to mention has worked with Luck so the familiarity will help.)

3rd- NT Alameda Ta'amu (He is somewhat a developmental NT, but he could be a very good one for us soon. Either Garay or Franklin will help split time with him.)

4th- WR AJ Jenkins (We need another WR with Wayne and Collie. Jenkins has the same build as Wayne, and learning from him would be very benefitial.)

4th(comp for Session)- WR/KR Joe Adams (Fell a little due to slow 40, but has good game speed and could serve as our explosive WR on the team.)

5th- C Michael Brewster (Insurance in case Pollak doesnt work at C)

I forget what what Our cap looks like but if I remember right its not much unfortunately and we may only be able to sign a couple unless something happens with freeny but I love the picks

Part of me would die if Freeney got traded to the Pats. I don't think I'd be able to stand seeing him do his wicked spin move in a Pats jersey

Giving Freeney an extension only to trade him will create an even bigger cap hit this year...clearly I'm no UndecidedFrog or FireJimCaldwell or any other of the cap experts here but I know that much.

    • Fromm seems like a career backup   I think Eason is a better candidate for the tier 2 QBs 
    • Not sure what you have seen during college or post college to determine that one Qb is a game manager and another other is not.  The physicality prism?     All the Qb can do is to see where to throw the ball, then throw it there accurately. The WRs have to go unscripted too, and find an open spot, or a spot that he can be lead to.      After 5 seconds from the snap of the ball, whether the Qb makes that decision and throws the ball from the pocket or by running to the right hash mark doesn't matter, other than being on the right hash mark provides half as many opportunities to see where to throw the ball and throw it there accurately.   If unscripted means that my $125 mil Qb is carrying the team by making 25 yard scrambles for TDs, and is treated as a runner, I don't want that.  Its pretty to watch and nice to have, but its not really what the Qb position is about, IMO.
    • I believe Reich has shown that he adjusts his offense to his QBs style, Therefore it's most important to get the best QB we can draft, instead of getting the best fit for a certain system   To me Fromm is like Gordon who has a lot to prove (if not more because he had a way more talented team). I keep hearing how smart he is but, Fitzpatrick is one of the smartest QBs to play the game and I wouldn't want him on our team, If we drafted him though I wouldn't trade back into the 1st for him because that would mean at least 3-4 QBs were taken and we could get him with one of our second rnd picks.          
    • The scrambling ability is not why I don’t want Fromm. I want a guy that can put a team on his shoulders when things aren’t going right.  A game manager is not going to give us a team that can compete with Mahomes the next decade. The ability to make plays unscripted though is something that is important in the NFL today with players getting faster. Having a QB that can go off script when a play breaks down is huge.
