Cain was known as a deep threat in college. We have zero deep game with JB thus far. He's never been a possession type WR, which is what they tried to turn him into after switching him back and forth

What's the Steelers getting Colts underpeforming WR's first Moncrief now Cain lol.

I actually hope he sticks around there.  But he might end up back here after JU JU comes back. IF he stays there It will force Ballard to draft a WR instead of taking a chance on him developing.

Any WR drafted has to develop in the NFL. 

Just the talent level of defensive players in the NFL makes it very hard for a rookie WR to come in and make much of an impact. 

There are not many WRs who come into the NFL and make a lot of noise consistently. 

Just saying.

Yeah I get that. This year though it seems there have been a few having a  pretty good year for being rookies. I think if  we  can get one that at least can play and make some impact rather then nothing would put us in a much better spot.

Here is the issue though. Are we going to have another WR that needs developing if we pick that low rather then a 1st rd pick. I suppose you could end up with a guy like Mclaurin that late.  I don’t know enough about the WR that might be out there to know how many are going to be out there who are great.  Ballard did rave about the WR class. This could very well be the time we get that TY replacement. Future will be great with Campbell and a draft pick in 2020. Along with Hilton finishing his career with them it could be fun. If we go in with TY, Campbell, a draft pick, pascal and then maybe resign DF that could be a great group if everyone stays healthy. It even leaves room for a guy like fountain or to bring back Rogers. I definitely think this team will keep going with 6 Wr with the injuries this year.

i hope we can draft a wr who can start but draft picks are so iffy, would rather we get a young proven one by trade or free  agent

I think the Colts take a WR on Day 2.    We've got 3 picks to find one we like.   As we all know, this is a very good WR class coming up.     I'd be beyond stunned if we didn't draft a WR in Rounds 2 or 3.    Seems like a natural fit of need and opportunity.    It's a love connection.

 

 

Chris Ballard has personally watched Chase Claypool 2x this year.

 

Claypool is tearing it up this year.  117 yards and 4 TDs today.  He can run every route: drive route, sideline route, vertical, fade.  Extremely physical.  High-points the football. 

 

An absolute stud gunner on special teams.  I will literally do a backflip if the Colts land Claypool.

With TY, Fountain and potentially seeing what DF does here, I don’t see us picking WR before the 3rd round. We need to add potentially a QB in the first and we have to resolve that DT/NT spot as well as a CB and a RT/RG. That’s a lot of have to haves to pick wr early imho. 

Nah we need another wr

Prepare to scream.  If you’re suggesting CB would take a WR in the first round, I think you will be sadly mistaken. Now, if the Colts don’t think they resign TY, then I could see it but forgetting to add in Paris Campbell to the mix as well makes me believe the first round WR guy would be a very slim chance. Warm up the cords my friend. 

TY is just about done has been injured constantly the last 2 years may be just about time to move on.

I don’t think he is done but it’s concerning with all the injuries piling up.

Put me in the camp calling for a free agent WR as well as one taken high in the draft. We all know that it takes a couple of years to hit your stride as a pro WR. I don’t think the team can wait for that. The Colts need to improve at this position immediately, especially with TY showing the inevitable signs of aging, i.e. he’s dinged up constantly. I’m not sure what will be out there next year FA-wise, but I know this: they can’t fix this problem with draft picks alone.

If there is a elite young WR in FA I would definitely go that route. Plus a draft pick that would be big.

If the colts really wanted to protect him and not lose him there was plenty of room on the roster to keep him on the 53. We have  few extra players they could of cut. They clearly were not worried about losing him. I seen a lot of teams putting PS players on the roster because other teams wanted them.

yeah Jacoby gets years to prove himself, but if a WR doesnt look good with him he has to go

 

Just the mental aspects between the two positions are astronomical. Comparing the two positions is over looking what it takes to be a NFL player.

I want a rookie wr that is so nice he demands double teams out the gate and beats them.

Who's calling Jacoby a rookie?  Talk like you're actually reading the responses posted to you please. I mean it's obvious you aren't, but at least APPEAR to be putting in some effort.

sounds like you didnt read them to me

 

some people want to give Jacoby years and years to see if hes the guy, but if a WR doesnt make him look good we need to ship them out asap

There were some creative thinkers here the beginning of the season, saying JB was still basically a rookie.

We need several things, doesn’t mean we are going to get them all. Depends on who is drawing up the needs assessment charts (it’s not us lol)

If Ballard takes a qb  which he might at some point if he sees one he likes then I'm ok with that, but we need a wr taken high. A wr that can start day 1 and have an impact. We can't  even win without  Hilton.  Absolutely  ridiculous.

He's  a rookie in Frank Reich system. My issue with drafting a qb is who is going to be there.  If we were picking  top 3 I feel more comfortable  taking one. Then again lamar Jackson  was taken 32nd, but if we did take a qb would they be an upgrade or would they be hoyer level.

i thought he would be good, the jets should have taken him 

 

he may not play into his 40s, but they needed a spark and no player would do that better than him

That still don't address the difference between a WR and a QB. 

Like I said, comparing the two positions shows little knowledge of what it takes to be a NFL player in the NFL and the difference of the two positions.

JB has had plenty of time to learn the system, and the pro game

Another thing some people  want Love, but one draft evaluation  I saw says he fails to see the whole field  and locks on to his number 1 target

 

1) This is not exactly germane to the topic 

2) There is a whole topic about 2020 prospects 

3) At least link the evaluation

    • https://www.si.com/nfl/2021/01/16/nfl-scouting-combine-2021-drastically-altered-covid-19   The NFL Combine won't be like were used to, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, which limit the possibilities for teams to evaluate the players and their talent.   In the 4 years Ballard has been in Indianapolis, he have really nailed some of his draft picks and the scouting staff he has gathered in that period, have really been praised and mentioned time and time again, for their talent evaluation skills and success rate in the draft picks.   I know, every team have a huge setup and that the pandemic has limited the possibility for gathering as much information on every player in 2020 compared to other years, so it might be status Q. But the colts have been one of the better drafting teams the last couple of years, and with players like Big Q, Leonard, Taylor, Blackmon and Pittmann, Ballard and his team has really nailed some picks.   So, due to the major impact it will have for the entire league, that their won't be any scouting combine like were used to, does the Colts then have a slightly advantage over other teams, due to the setup Ballard and Ed Dodds have built?   I am especially thinking about an edge over teams with new GM´s, HC's and so on.
    • Haha.   I know what it means.    I worded it poorly.    What I meant was,   what was it he said that was disingenuous. 
    • I thought this guy suggesting the Colts keep Malik Hooker was the downfall of this video. Not even the dumbest GM in the NFL would trade their first round pick for Carson Wentz and that absurd contract he has tied to him. How could you label this as a perfect off-season?   What is Carson Wentz's salary cap hit Wentz is costing the Eagles $18.656 million against the cap for 2020. His dead money was set at $77.877 million.  His cap number jumps up to $34.673 million in 2021. It comes down to $31.274 million in 2022, and hits a peak of $36.273 million in 2023. In 2024, the final year of the contract, the cap hit of $32 million will match his average annual salary. Wentz is actually making only $1.383 million in base salary this season. That number hits a high of $22 million when he turns 30, appropriately in 2022. When the Eagles' structured Wentz's deal, in relation to the extensions for other highly drafted quarterbacks, it ended up being team-friendly. The Eagles had to work it up that way given Wentz's history of injury. In the end, however, he didn't sacrifice too much overall given the exponential explosion at the top of the QB market since. When can the Eagles get out of Carson Wentz's contract? The Eagles, if they don't think about trading Wentz before June 1 in 2021 — the only scenario in which they see any kind of cap relief for the move — are likely locked into Wentz for one more season. Given their cap situation, releasing Wentz is financially impossible. That move would cost the Eagles $59 mllion in dead money with a cap hit of $24.5 million. Trading him to someone would cause them to eat $33.8 million in dead money but at least get a mild cap relief of about $853,000. The trick there will be finding a partner willing to take on his adjusted lesser contract, which would be essentially for four years at $98.4 million

    • Wow, 5 pages of rants and arguments.  This is an off season comedy.
