Interesting.  They have us taking Herbert over Love who goes at pick 41 to the Chargers.  RB over WR in the 2nd. Rd.   No WR until the 4th.  I guess they think we are finding another starting WR in FA.

I see us losing 2 of 4 games

 

We may be drafting 14-16

 

Tua might be within reach to do a tradets 

 

Its a bit interesting that Tua isnt on the list  ???

 

He seems like less of a risk than Herbert or Love

Other than the Sage Surrat pick in the 4th I'm not a huge fan of this. 

 

Would much rather get DT Javon Kinlaw round 1 and QB Jordan Love early round 2. And I feel like both the 48th and 82nd picks are reaches.

There are mocks with J. Love going Rd 1. 

I wouldn’t put a lot of stock in who goes where though.

Maybe the highlight videos of Herbert aren’t a good representation but a ton of his yards have come from screen passes. He also seems to throw the ball kind of hard and not with much touch. Am I wrong about that? A WR that late just gives us another guy who may or might not pan out. Way to low for a WR.

He is injury prone.

Hey, I wouldn't put it past Ballard to move back in Round 1 with the Dolphins who may move up to the Colts' first rounder with a combination of their Texans' 1st rounder and their own 2nd rounder. He might still be able to get who he wants with some maneuvering.

Might though. You really don’t take that chance with a QB. Any other position you can take a risk. If you find your QB and they are there for the taking you really can’t risk it.

GMs typically know how things will play out, IMO, as far as who is likely to move up for a QB etc. That is another reason Ballard did not want to move down from the Rock-Ya-Sin pick because he wanted him. I feel that there are 7 teams that will draft QBs. 

 

Outside the obvious Bengals and Dolphins, I have 5 other teams I believe will draft a QB - Panthers, Bucs, Raiders, Chargers and Colts. 

 

See my post here: 

 

 

 

I do think we will win 7 games at least and my prediction is still 8-8 for us. In all likelihood, the only team drafting later than us that I see are the Raiders. If we are confident they will not draft a QB after what they invested in Carr, our odds are good if we drop down about 8-10 picks in the draft that the QB we want is still there when it is the Texans' 1st rounder turn. I expect Ballard and his scouts to have a good pulse on that. Maybe we get the Dolphins' Steelers first rounder pick instead of the Texans' first rounder pick then if we want to be sure.

There are some tricky teams that it will be hard to predict. Patriots might even move up. Will the Titans be satisfied with Tannehill  the next few years.  Oakland is another one to watch. Will the Steelers take one that high even though they expect Big Ben back.  It’s really going to be crap shoot if someone is there. I am not really liking what I see from a guy like Herbert.

Call me crazy, but of the QBs that could be available with our first 2nd rounder (from the Skins), i would take Fromm... his scouting report sounds a lot like that of Brees and even Peyton, to a degree... he is listed at 6'2...has been running a pro style O since high school...is the smartest on the field and makes all of his reads... the "knock" on his is that he doesnt have the strongest arm... but neither does Brees, Peyton, Brady etc. 

 

If it were possible to get a stud on D or a stud WR in the 1st and then Fromm in the 2nd, count me in.  Heck, Jacoby DOES have a cannon of an arm, but lacks all of the other parts, in my opinion.

 

Anyhow, just my 2 cents.

You don’t take Potential franchise QBs outside the 1st round. That’s mainly because of how important that 5th year option is.

 

Plus aside from Wilson and maybe Dak, what starting QBs were RECENTLY drafted outside the 1st round? Wentz, Goff, Mahomes, Watson, And Lamar were all 1st rounders. Even guys who are still being evaluated like Mayfield, Allen, Murray, Haskins, and Jones were 1st rounders. Only guy you can really point to is Garoppolo as Minshew is also still being evaluated.

 

Worse case scenario with Love is that he slips but the Colts trade back into the bottom of the 1st for him.

Yep, you take them in the 1st because of the 5th year option.  That's a good point.

 

I think these early mocks start slotting picks by pure BPA.

 

By the time the draft rolls around, QBs have climbed 10, 20, or 30 slots.

    • I don't think we would get anything in a trade for him at his salary.  Not really good enough to be your plan A and his contract is too big to be a backup.     He would have to be released or we would just have to eat the cost and let him be our backup.  But in terms of roster spots we would I think be drafting a guy to learn behind Rivers and Kelly is there as well.  At least one would have to go.   For the record I doubt we sign Rivers.  He moved his family to Florida right after the season ended.  I have to think there is a reason for that.  Why move just to move again a few months later? 
    • He's the Main Man on our team!!   So great, "What will you be when you grow up?  "Big."
    • could say something similar about jordan love too imo   a great combine could put him in the top 10, if he bombs that could drop him to the second round
    • I think the trade market for JB would be tough.  I don't see a team trading for him to be a starter and $13 is too much to pay a back up QB.   If the Colts had to pay the $7M 2020 roster bonus (due on 3/22/20) before trading him then maybe it's easier to trade him as a backup with a $6M base salary.  But at that point maybe it's better to keep him as our own $6M backup and cut Hoyer (Hoyer has no 2020 cap impact).  
    • Four verts is also an air raid staple though — maybe only trailing mesh and WR screens. If that stat is accurate, it’s probably an indication that Gordon has some arm strength issues or struggles with deep ball placement.   My biggest question with Gordon — or Hurts, or really any of the third round or later round QB prospects— is if he’s a better long-term prospect than Chad Kelly. In Gordon’s case, He’s a 5th year senior, only has one year starting experience in the PAC 12, and has some size/arm talent questions. I like the release and production but nothing else about that resume really stands out. He had a good Senior Bowl game but mediocre week of practice.   I’m not a Kelly truther but he’s still just 25, had two years starting experience in the SEC, a couple of years of NFL roster experience, and by all indications has a good enough arm by NFL standards. I think it’s pretty clear that Kelly’s likely the minimum threshold that a QB prospect will have to clear to be considered draftable by the Colts.
