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

    • They got another ring out of it BUT they really should have tagged Jimmy even though it would be a ton of money to do so. Once you have identified the QB you don't give him away.
    • i was hoping they would draft one of Tua, Herbert or Love in that order    would have swamped firsts and traded a future first to get Tua or Herbert.
    • When did we start comparing Mahomes with Rivers? I thought we were talking about roster deficiencies, and since ours major holes right now are at WR and DE (presumably), I was pointing out that Mahomes doesn't have to overcome those deficiencies. Those are actually strengths of the Chiefs roster.   But yes, of course, Mahomes is the man that makes it happen. He's the best QB in the league, the most dynamic player in the league, and as long as he's healthy his team will be relevant in the AFC. Rivers wasn't as talented as Mahomes is during his prime, and now Rivers is 37 years old. 
    • It's not about giving him a pass. It's about saying stuff like 'Ballard's teams have a losing record' or 'what's he doing at QB,' which is nonsense.   They took Eason in the 4th, then spent the summer talking about how he needed to win a spot on the active roster. I don't think anyone is looking at Eason as "the guy." It would be cool if things worked out that way, but I think it's a mistake to count on it. If we still had Luck, and drafted Eason, he'd be viewed as a developmental guy who might have some value for us at some point. That's how I view him now.   As for Herbert, realistically speaking, we would have had to get up to #4. Neither the Dolphins nor the Chargers were moving from #5 or #6. That conversation probably starts with two firsts. I really like Herbert, if we were gonna move up for a QB I would have wanted it to be for him, but it's hard to imagine Ballard giving up the haul it would take to get there.    We do need a long term solution. I'm just saying, until September of last year, we thought we had a long term solution. It's been one offseason without Luck. It's not a massive failure on Ballard's part that we didn't find "the guy" in 2020. Like you said, gotta put a pin in it for right now, and we'll see what happens next offseason.
    • Great point that says a lot.   I've believed throughout the past two seasons that Ballard himself thinks less of his roster and draft success than the fans do.  I don't think his moves last season had anything to do with thinking the Colts were close to a SB.  I think he brought in a competent QB like Rivers because he could not last another season with such incompetent play like JB.   IOW, he brought in Rivers to be able to go 8 and 8 and be competitive in the losing games while still building the roster...part of which was reloading on his whiffs..  Avoiding a repeat the second half of last season where the Colts were terribly outmatched any time the other team chose to put on the gas.   He wouldn't have trade for Buckner unless Buckner could play for another 5 years.  It wasn't a mortgage the future to win now trade of a first round pick.
