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

    • Could you imagine Michael Thomas in this offense? We can dream, right? Will it happen? Probably not.
    • Ask the same question at the end of 2021 season. It will be interesting to know everyone's answer by then
    • Note-1:   I never care if any poster and I agree or disagree.   I care far more about the arguments you make to back up your point.      Note-2:   You post a lot.  Not complaining.  And when you post a smart, thoughtful post, as you often do,  I give it a like.  I only give a negative emoji (said or laughing) when I think it's called for.   I don't do it all the time with you.   Earlier this week,  you literally wrote that you try to give a player a half a season before making a judgement.   When I got done laughing,  my response was....   Oh, really?    Where was the half season for Okereke?    Where was the half season for Willis?   Where is the half season for Blackmon?    Where is the half season for Burton?    Where was the half season for Brissett?    I'm sure there are more,  but you get the point.    None of these guys got a game, much less a half-season.   Okereke:   You didn't like him on draft day.   Said he can't play the run.   Somehow in his first year,  Okereke was the highest graded rookie linebacker in the NFL.  Not in the AFC South.  Not in the whole AFC.   But in the entire National Football league.   Now this year, he's not playing the pass well.  And your're all over that.   So, how exactly did Okereke become the highest graded rookie linebacker in the NFL?   Because if a poster only read your posts about him,  one would think Okereke is terrible.  One would think Ballard blew the draft pick.  Your commentary is totally one sided.   Willis:   You didn't like him from the jump.   You criticized him after the Buffalo pre-seasonn game.   He played a lot his rookie year.  He's starting this year.   He may not be great,  but most think he's pretty good.   You think he's a situational safety in the box...  a hybrid linebacker I think you called him.   The front office and coaching staff think otherwise.   Blackmon:   Yet another you didn't like on a draft day.   You've been calling him a future STRONG safety from the beginning.   The GM,  the scouting staff,  the HC,  the DC and the position coach -- everyone -- has called him a free safety.   But up until this week,  you've been hinting that you're not yet convinced.   And when Blackmon started making plays,  you told other posters not to get too excited because he was doing it against bad offenses.   Then, he has yet another good game against Cincy and now you're starting to move your position.   Moving like a glacier.   Maybe he's a FS afterall.  So, now you're new argument is that the coaching staff made Hooker look bad by using him in the wrong defense and they're making Blackmon look good by putting him in the right defense.   So, you're now explaining why you've been wrong by blaming the coaching staff.   Burton:   Didn't like the signing at all.   In fact, while he was injured and before he played a single game you wrote about how you hoped the staff didn't use him too much.   So, he plays his first game,  scores two TD's, one rushing and one receiving, and back you jump to tell posters not to get too excited...   that sincy has a bad defense.     There always has to be an explanation why you're well stated positions seem wrong.   It can't just be that you're wrong.   Brissett:   When Jacoby Brissett started off 5-2 there you were telling everyone it was Fools Gold.   You think the rest of the season proves you were right.   Many of us think the fact that he was hurt in the Pittsburgh game which led to his falloff in play is the reason.  Either way, he didn't get a half season from you.   You were negative from the start and shaped your arguments accordingly.   Reich:   You and I are long on the record on our view on Reich.   And you don't deny that you're argument about the entire 2018 season came down to one game, the playoff game vs. Cincy.   And now it continues.   This week,  you went out of your way to say how much you like Reich (As a GUY!)   He passes the famous Beer Test.   Which brings us to this thread...  it's title is "10 burning questions about our WR group."   But one look at it and it's not hard to see it could also be titled  "10 more examples of how bad a play caller Frank Reich is.   Or,  Why does Frank Reich suck so much?"     Summary:   You have lots of interesting observations.   You think you're protected by the use of Next Gen Stats.   Frankly, I don't think you know how to use them -- at least,  not honestly.   So, my arguments are not that you do or don't like any given player.   It's how you present your argument.   How you present your case.   I'm rarely impressed.   When I am, you get a "like" from me.   Not that you care, and I don't expect you to.   I'm just saying I try to be fair with you.   I give credit when you earn it.   And I show my disapproval when I don't think you're being honest.   You give players a half year to show themselves?    Yeah,  that's not true, and I think I just showed it.  
    • they are not ranked good in either , but stats can be misleading .  Look at the offenses they faced , the colts were rank number 1 defense in every stat by far .  Stats can be misleading at times , they lions seem like the blitz a lot watching them play the jags.
    • autry played very well at defensive tackle and he is 285 .  lewis is around 280 now and shorter then autry .  i trust the coaches they see lewis play every day and see him as a better fit playing the 3 behind buckner .
