4-Round Mock

Recommended Posts

Let me preface this by saying I am all for building an "Indomitable" defense that will shut everyone down, however, this National Pundit has obviously not watched a Colts game this year based off of these 5 picks in the first 4 rounds.

 

18. Indianapolis Colts | Raekwon Davis | DL | Alabama

This defensive line needs reinforcements across the board, and in this scenario, the value is better inside than on the edge. Davis is a         massive, versatile defender who is still barely scratching the surface of potential.

 

35. Indianapolis Colts (from WAS) | Terrell Lewis | EDGE | Alabama

 

49. Indianapolis Colts | Tyler Johnson | WR | Minnesota

 

84. Indianapolis Colts | Lavert Hill | CB | Michigan

 

115. Indianapolis Colts | Richie Grant | S | UCF

 

A DT, DE, WR, CB and a S.......

 

While I will not argue that each of these areas could be improved, but, our defense has not been the big toe of this team. Our Kicking Game has literally cost us 4 games and our Offense NEEDS playmakers. Full Stop....

 

Banogu, Muhammad and Turay are pretty good depth at DE.

Desir, Moore, Rock and Tell are a solid group of corners - even with Wilson in the doghouse again.

Willis is playing at an extremely high level (for a 4th Round Rookie) and Odum is a quality backup for both him and Hooker.

We could use another big body behind Stewart, but, it's not the weakness that is was the first 3 games of the season.

 

What we need to draft is the best WR available at 18, the next best WR available at 35, and the best developmental QB at 49 (Jordan Love), draft the best combo tight end available at 84 and THEN starting with your 4th round pick fill in depth on the defense - I say depth because there are likely no open starters positions on defense based off of what has been drafted the last couple of years.

 

That would leave you with Brissett with a young stud to grow/learn

That would give us T.Y., Pascal, Campbell, Fountain and 2 stud draft picks at WR

That would give us a re-signed Doyle/Ebron (only one), ACox, Travis and a young stud TE

The running game is in good hands with the combo of backs we have plus that OLine

 

The infusion of 3 young playmakers at WR and TE would be huge. Plus these fluke injuries to Campbell have to end sometime, correct?

I really like Tyler Johnson. This WR class is loaded. If a great edge or corner falls, I wouldn’t mind going there as great receiver will be there at the top of second. But if somehow Lamb or Jeudy are there, Ballard needs to do his best Usain bolt impersonation to the podium.

I agree....I only laughed because of the Usain reference.....lol

I think this is going to be a offensive draft. The defense is at the point where maybe we try and upgrade with a couple good FA.

Not a bad mock, though.  I like the first pick.

 

I'm thinking there should be a TE and a RB in there, maybe where the EDGE and CB are drafted.  At pick 35 we could get excellent talent at TE.  We only need a compliment power back for Mack, and pick 84 or 115 should fill that need with good value.

 

The second WR we need can be a FA.

Couldn't agree more. I think we will see -in some order- a QB, WR, and TE taken in the Day 1/2 picks, with a likely DT thrown in. 

 

I'd love to see them get Love at QB, Lamb at WR, Gallimore at DT, and Brycen Hopkins at TE or Cole Kmet if he declares from Notre Dame.

I truly think it is 50/50 of the Colts take a QB in the first 2 rounds. I’ve been listening the stampede blue podcast and he mentioned an interesting note. 
 

We have heard Ballard and Reich say that they believe Jacoby is a top 20 QB. Would they be saying this and dump him after this year. Or would they look at all the tape for this and say if we get him a few more playmakers and , more importantly, get our playmakers healthy,  do we believe that he could be a top 10-15 QB and lead an efficient offense? Go take a listen to it. A very good listen. 
 

also, I don’t see Lamb dropping to us.

Also meant to put this. The Colts are currently a top 20 offense and top 15 defense. This is with all the players out. Realistically we could be a top 15 offense and top 10 defense with everyone healthy.

    • 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.
    • Jones is who I want...even if it's a franchise and trade.   As for DEs...I would look at Clowney. Would step right in and replace Sheard.
    • I think most want a QB who doesn't have to carry the team just to be competitive.    Reich had both the scrambler, Wentz, and the statue, Foles, and won with both.  Don't get fooled into adopting the scrambling trendiness as being something essential.   Its merely about how long a QB holds the ball to allow something to develop.  Some leave the pocket. Others stay there until the last second.  Running to one side of the field normally cuts your vision of the field in half, limiting the options.  We have the pocket to give any QB time to stand there and extend the play.  Most teams don't.   I'm intrigued by Eason.  I like his height.  Its tough to substitute that.  Obviously Herbert too.
