All these big bucks getting thrown around to WRs here in the off season got me thinking. Who are in your opinion the best players at there positions. Lets start with offense, and if it goes well we can go to def.

In Order....

QB:Aaron Rodgers... (Big Gap).....Tom Brady-Drew Brees-Eli Manning-Matthew Stafford-Phillip Rivers-Big Ben-Matt Ryan-Cam Newton- Tony Romo

RB: Arian Foster-Adrian Peterson-Chris Johnson-Ray Rice-Steven Jackson-MJD- Michael Turner-Lesean Mccoy-Marshawn Lynch-Deangelo Williams

WR: Larry Fitzgerald-Calvin Johnson....(Massive Gap).....Andre Johnson-Roddy White-Brandon Marshall-Mike Wallace-Hakeem Nicks- Dwayne Bowe-Greg Jennings-Miles Austin

I noticed I didnt put any of the top$ making WR this year in FA on that list. Funny how that works...

QB: Aaron Rodgers ... (tiny gap) ... Tom Brady-Drew Brees ... (gap) ... Eli Manning-Phillip Rivers-Matt Schaub-Ben Rothlesberger ... (gap) ... Tony Romo-Matthew Stafford-Matt Ryan ... (tiny gap) ... Jay cutler.

I would place Peyton Manning right now with Eli, Phillip, Matt and Ben until I see his first game.

RB: Arian Foster-Adrian Peterson ... (gap) ... Chris Johnson-Ray Rice-Steven Jackson-Maurice Jones Drew-LeSean McCoy ... (big gap) ... Michael Turner-Matt Forte-Frank Gore-Darren McFadden ... (gap) ... Marshawn Lynch-Deangelo Williams-Shonne Green ... (fall of the table gap) ...

I may have missed someone that belongs above the "fall of the table gap" and I was tempted to stop at Darren McFadden.

IMO Andre Johnson is the most overrated WR in the league.

I don't know why Cutler gets thrown in the Matt Ryan/Joe Flacco category. He carries his team. The Bears had nobody to throw to, and the worst Oline in the league, yet he still had them at what, 7-2 before he got hurt? He goes down and their defense just about scores more points than the offense.

I don't know that they're the best backs in the league, but MJD, Marshawn Lynch, and Frank Gore are my favorite backs in the league. I like workhorses that run low and keep their feet moving. If you ask me Arian Foster is the beneficiary of the best Oline in the league, and a really scumbaggish cut blocking scheme.

For WR it's Calvin Johnson and Larry Fitzgerald. But man did Detroit break the bank for that guy.

Your list is close to what I have. Just switch Calvin and Fitz. Also replace Cam with Stafford.

    • Really doubt Trevor busts. And would bet a lot of money Ehlinger never balls lol.    It's understandable why Jax is rated so high. Their first 5 picks were good. And when you have 4 picks in the first two rounds, it's hard to mess that up. Trevor, Etienne, Campbell, Little, and Cisco is hard to argue with.
    • As I’ve thought and learned more about these picks, I’m becoming more of a fan of this draft.  One thing we have to remember is that the Colts have become a pretty deep team at this point.  It was impossible to take a player in the 6th or 7th that would be expected to make this team.  Those shots are just pot shots, looking for players that can contribute in any way.  My thoughts:   1) Kwity - a high ceiling, high floor stud athlete with a hot motor.  We needed a young piece to the DE rotation we can count on being a starter 2022 and beyond.  Good pick.   2) Dayo - A swing for the fences.  Hard to be upset with a pick with such obvious upside in the Autry role.     4) Granson - Don’t know how I missed this prospect.  I was looking for a mid-round prospect with his exact skill set, but never once came across his name!  Every draft review seems to either call him our best or worst pick.  This is my favorite pick after researching him.   5) S*n Davis2 -The more I read about him, the more I likes the pick.  We have quite a few nfl veterans on the roster at safety, but Davis has a lot of upside and might actually figure into our future at the position.  Good pick.   6) Hey, we’re in the 6th.  Don’t expect a slam dunk roster enhancer.  We traded down to add two shots in the dark, rather the just the 6th rounder.  So, Reich thinks Ehlinger has the “It” factor.  Good enough for me.  I had us adding a late QB in many of my mocks, though I like Feleipe Franks (who went unstaffed).  Since it didn’t look like we’d add a veteran back-up QB, it made sense to add another late arm for TC that will be a good presence in the QB room.  If you only keep two QBs, it’s a must to have one on the PS, anyway.   7) Strachan - Quite an athlete.  Why not?  Probably a PS guy, but he could even be a possibility at move TE someday.  Who knows?   7) Medium Fries - He had a fan or two amongst Colt fans in the lead up to the draft.  Never hurts to bring in OLs late.  Hard to imagine him making the team or not making the PS.   Honestly, I can’t take exception to any picks until the late 6th, and this wasn’t a draft that had a lot of late gems IMO.  If you’re upset about LT, well the draft just didn’t work out that way.  Pretty sure we’d have taken Radunz if the Titans hadn’t taken him one pick ahead of us.  Then, after that, there was practically no point.  We had depth at the position.  Any pick 4th round or lower wouldn’t have been any kind of upgrade.  Ballard played it cool, and we’ll probably start Leno or Fisher.    
    • That's usually my favorite of the episodes every year and this one is no exception. I love watching young people get their lives changed for the better and most of the time thanks to a ton of work they've put in to get to that point.    Here are some things that were pointed out by users on reddit, on several ocassions you can see color coded names on the board of the colts. We know that they called Kwity a "blue card" guy. This is their designation for high character guy, a guy that exemplifies their ideal of attitude, work ethic, effort...    At 5:12 of the clip you can see the names of already drafted players before us as Frank stands in front of the board. Accordin to that shot, the Colts had blue card designation to DeVonta Smith and Trey Lance. You can also see a red color designation on Jaylen Waddle. Not 100% sure but I assume this is their injury concern designation.    At 11:06 of the clip, you can see red color designation on Caleb Farley. You can also see it on Dayo Odeyingbo. The interesting one here is Landon Dickerson - he has BOTH blue and red color designation. Which again fits with what we've heard about him - very high character guy, great leader... but also multiple season ending injuries.    At 13:04 you can see the following: blue card on Nick Bolton(LB, Missouri) picked by the Chiefs, blue card on Pete Werner(LB, Ohio State) picked by the Saints, red designation on Josh Myers(C, Ohio State) picked by the Packers. You can also see red card on Malcolm Koonce(EDGE, Buffalo) picked by the Raiders. Blue cards on Spencer Brown(OT, Northern Iowa) picked by the Bills and Robert Hainsey(OT/OG, Notre Dame), picked by the Bucs and John Bates(TE. Boise State) picked by WFT.    At about 15:01 you can see a few picks before our pick Shawn Davis, there is a blue card player, but unfortunately I can't be sure how many picks before us exactly it is - seems like it's either Noah Gray or Darrick Forrest.   
    • I don't buy that Eason was picked with an assumption to take over either. I do think he was rated to be a solid backup at minimum, with traits and the hopes he might develop over time into more.   With Ehlinger, he simply doesn't have the physical traits to be more than a very very limited backup. Just doesn't have arm strength and lacks size. I guess he can learn and improve pocket presence, but if you're starting with poor arm strength and height out of the gate, why bother. IMO, he would have likely been available post draft. I just would have preferred to get a guy with at minimum physical trait upside, or a guy who can impact special teams.   It's a 6th round pick, so not gong to lose sleep over it. I just think there were other high character guys (if that's what you want) out there with better traits in positions we needed more.   Leonard really wasn't underrated though, or some brilliant pick. He was tied for the 39th best rating in the draft. He was taken 36th. He pretty much was drafted where the experts predicted.   The jury is still out on Okereke. IMO he's the weak link on the D right now. Willis is really growing on me. Not flashy, but solid role player and great kid.
    • That doesn't make sense at all. We have Braden Smith, who has been one of the top RT's in the league and needs a new contract. He's not taking a lesser contract to kick inside to RG and it wouldn't make sense to have a RG making RT money. With bringing in O'Neill, that would mean you have 2 high $$ RT's and playing one at RG. I think our replacement at RG is already on the roster (Pinter or Reed).   I don't see us making a move for O'Neill and despite salary cap concerns, I don't see them letting O'Neill get away, as he's far and away the best player on their OL. If he hits FA, he'll cost way more than we're wanting to pay.
