With the 13th pick in 2020 NFL Draft (merge)


Recommended Posts

The Colts take_______

 

We should be in good discussion for getting one of the best quarterbacks. If we are the 11th pick it wouldn't take a whole lot to move to 8. The good news there will be a solid quarterback available at that time. I guess we'll see how it works out because this season was a complete wreck from the Pittsburgh game on

When it’s two teams they do a coin flip to see who picks first.  Not sure what happens with multiple.  Is it reverse strength of schedule?

In situations where teams finished the previous season with identical records, the determination of draft position is decided by strength of schedule — the aggregate winning percentage of a team’s opponents. The team that played the schedule with the lowest winning percentage will be awarded the higher pick.

If the teams have the same strength of schedule, division or conference tiebreakers are applied. If the divisional or conference tiebreakers are not applicable, or ties still exist between teams of different conferences, ties will be broken the following tie-breaking method:

1. Head-to-head, if applicable

2. Best won-lost-tied percentage in common games (minimum of four)

3. Strength of victory in all games

4. Best combined ranking among all teams in points scored and points allowed in all games

5. Best net points in all games

6. Best net touchdowns in all games

7. Coin toss

I think it would be a mistake to go hell for leather for a QB in the first round.  None of the guys on the board in round 1 really impress me, and we have an even more pressing need at WR right now.  I'd rather go for a first round wideout and a second round QB, there's usually gonna be some decent talents that don't go in round 1.

Any game wreckers on D that might be there at #13?. We only + about the offense, but that D is definitely thirsty for a force at DT or DE.

 

I think they'd be able to potentially find a good QB prospect with that 33/34? pick.

 Ok then. That is settled. LMAO

I doubt we end up picking 13 in April...

 

Colts will trade up for a QB.

As long as they don't get robbed and mortgage the future I'd be ok with it.

 

If Ballard does that and that QB busts, bye bye Ballard.

We need to be rid of Jacoby, otherwise the fan base is going to get smaller...maybe much smaller. Ballard and Reich won't like to spend the time breaking in a new QB (it is easier to go with the mediocre veteran)...but they are going to have to do it or explain to Irsay why not.

Come back, Andrew, so we can draft whoever we want and compete for a title 8 months from now.

 

Doubtful, so trade up, if you have to.  If have no QB, you have nothing.  Can't go bargain shopping at the QB position.

Ballard will trade back to acquire more pics and take a 2nd rounder who either sucks or is hurt more often than they play

Man, is that ever his mode of operation...the clown thinks that more picks is better than top picks. Quantity over quality is a stupid losing strategy...it just gets you a lot of average+ players and no stars. You have an average team forever.

I'll be operating under this assumption all offseason for sure.

 

Jim Irsay will pressure the Front Office to acquire a QB. Remember that we're in "win-now" mode.

Irsay has also been spoiled the last two decades with Peyton and Andrew so anyone that doesnt play at a similar level is not gonna satisfy his expectations imo

As much of a concern as I have for the QB spot, I worry equally as much for the defensive crew, including do we have the right DC?

Am I the only one not that impressed with Herbert?

 

I watched about 3 or 4 Oregon games this year (can't remember which ones though - one was the PAC championship game) and I just didn't find him that impressive.

Looking for Herbert, Tua, or (hopefully) Derrick Brown at the 13th slot, or even moving up slightly

Tua has been hinting on his Twitter about returning to school next year and waiting a year to come out for the draft.

I have a coworker who went to Oregon, he’s a diehard CFB fan and he has said all season long that Herbert is overly hyped. Which means nothing coming from a fan of course but just saying is all

    • Great info. Thanks!   I was curious about the above question posed by Dontevergiveup too. It seems relevant.    In addition, is there a metric that takes in to account whether the receiver got seperation by his own route-running, or if he was schemed open? In other words, did the receiver get the seperation by his own skill, or did the coach's play get him seperation? That seems helpful when determining if it was indeed the receiver's skill, or the coach's skill.   Finally, it seems that frequently dumping the ball off to a RB would increase the seperation numbers, as they rarely have someone relatively close by, and Rivers seems to do that a lot.   As someone not very computer savvy, I appreciate many of your advanced metrics posts. Thanks again!
    • Two things stand out here. One I am not joking and second, I am not the dense one. 
    • I'm anxious to see which injured players we might get back this week.  I think Leonard and Pittman would give us a nice boost.   I noticed that the last 4 teams to beat the Falcons all lost the following week.  The Lions beat the Falcons last week, so maybe we keep that trend going?   This one looks like a toss up.  If we get Leonard and Pittman back, I like the Colts to come out on top, 27-24.
    • Thanks for sharing.   I wonder what these stats really tell us, since it is only for plays where the receiver is targeted.   I can't speak for last year, but the popular take I get from Colts fans is that Brissett was too conservative in his decision making and didn't push the ball downfield.  The stats you provided show that the receivers were open last year when they were targeted, but I wonder how open they were getting on all routes...I honestly don't know.  I assume Rivers makes more tight window throws than Brissett, and often times successfully, so I would expect that to skew the separation stats downward slightly for this season.
