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.

I agree with you and @NewColtsFan, if JB is going to be our QB moving forward we need to get him more help. TY isn't no spring chicken anymore either.

If JB is going to be the QB moving forward, the Colts will need a lot more than a receiver.

With the low output of our current group...

Maybe its time the Colts give Ashton Dulin more opportunities at WR?

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

College and NFL are very different.

Also he looked so good there because the defenses in the Big 12 conference are all trash.

It will l give Fountain a chance. I also won’t be surprised to see Cain back after the three games they have to keep him on  the roster. I think the Steelers lost another WR also that browns game.

Ya Johnson.

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.

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.

Wouldn't be surprised if that works out for cain.  rudolph lives and dies on the deep ball, it will give a guy with no discipline but great speed a chance to go get some footballs.

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.

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

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.

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

    • IMO there is no way in hell JB shouldn't have played vs Miami. We win that we are 6-3, that alone changes the season up to this point even. I think Reich thought Miami was so bad that he could gamble and play Hoyer and still win. That was a mistake.
    • That's actually not true. The Pacers have proven they can win without him. They are 33 and 20 without him since he's been a Pacer. Sabonis even has a better defensive rating than Myles does this year AND can actually score and rebound as well. I don't think it's much of coincidence that with Sabonis getting starter minutes he's EASILY shown he's the all around much better player.    The comparison? 4 years in the league(s) and still pretty much the same players they were in college, probably wouldn't get much in a trade for either one, and both are making ~18M this year. It doesn't get any more comparable than that... Myles' and Jacoby's ships have sailed. It's time to move on.
    • I don't know if this topic should be merged with another but it's something I need to get off my chest.  I've been contemplating where everything went off track for us.  And I keep coming back to the Steelers game & JB's injury.  But the more and more I think about it, I think Frank's actions in that game & the following week have cost us this season.   I came to this conclusion when I saw Justin Fields take a very similar shot to his knee in the OSU vs UM game.  OSU's coach put Fields back into the game.  The Buckeyes stabilized & Fields led them to victory that day & since to the playoffs.  I bring this up because it got me thinking about how our coach handled a similar situation.  JB came out & Hoyer threw a TD to Doyle (who was so wide open that JB could have made that throw but Hoyer did make some other good throws so I'm not disparaging his play that day) and Frank never looked back.   They showed him on the sideline and he could truly care less how his starting QB was doing...  It was as if he had been waiting for the moment where he could yank JB & put in a QB that he preferred.  How he handled the next week was more proof.  JB apparently took all the reps because he was healthy enough to play and as the starter wanted to.  But Frank didn't truly want him as the QB. So what does he do? He starts Hoyer, supposedly with minimal practice reps, because he felt that even with minimal reps, Hoyer was better than JB.   Unfortunately, it blew up in his and all Colts fans' faces when Hoyer laid an egg.  When Frank pulled JB for BH our season spiraled down the drain.  I believe that JB beats Pittsburgh and Miami and our season is looking very different despite the kicking woes & injuries & JB's limitations.  We were 5-2 at the time.  You don't make a boneheaded change like that.  You dance with the one that you brought...  The guy that lead us to 5-2 & 2nd in the AFC...   So I've reached the conclusion that Frank doesn't truly want JB as his QB.  And in that case we must move on to another QB next season.  I defended JB because the guy won and his teammates loved him.  But his limitations have worn on me as things have spiraled down the drain.  But he isn't alone in getting the blame.  I'm putting a lot of it on Frank & his decision to not trust his QB that got him to 5-2.     So we'll get a QB in here that he prefers next year but he won't be getting any more free passes from me.  He better win with whomever it is because I just watched him sabotage this season when the AFC was open for the taking.  If Luck said he wanted to come back in the Steelers game would Frank have ignored him & kept JB or whomever was the backup in the game?  Not a chance.  Would he have let Luck take all the reps the following week and then went with the backup?  Not a chance.  He wanted JB out and leapt at the opportunity when it was there.  Unfortunately, all he did was sink our season...
