I want number 10 in a Colts uniform next season.


Recommended Posts

Never would have thought Luck would retire. Didn’t see it coming. I get it though and don’t blame him at all. I’ve studied Herbert for a few years and (besides Trevor) he has been my favorite college QB for the past few years. 
 

Ballard is a smart man. He has to see the inadequacies at Oregon. Number 10 is a stud, and in my opinion he is the best QB in this draft. I hope he falls far enough for Ballard to move up and get him. 5-10 is all we need. We are in striking distance. 
 

Imagine Justin Herbert and Frank.... Look what he has done with Foles and Brissett.

Then watch the rest of his college career and stop pretending that reading the stat line from one game is better than actually scouting the player. 

He could be a hit or miss first-round pick. We need sure things in the first round, like a top defensive tackle or receiver.

I have questions about Herbert, but I really like him. He made two big throws to put that game away (three, but one was dropped on the previous drive), and seeing him kind of break character and show some emotion at the end was endearing.

Herbert has been good and has the NFL caliber arm. 
 

My only worry, and this is extremely stupid, is that I have a nagging worry that he’ll become another Mariota. That’s my gut feeling that has absolutely nothing to do with facts and statistics.

I'm sold. Ballard needs to trade up for once, and stop hoarding these hit or miss second round picks.

Yes...I posted support for Justin Herbert earlier today in another thread. He is the QB that I would like to see Ballard target and get from this year’s class.  He can run, pass, has good size and demonstrates solid character and leadership. Checks a lot of boxes in my opinion.  I expect his stock to rise in the coming months.  If Ballard wants him...he will have to move up and get him.

Only way we get Herbert is if we trade into the top five. Herbert could be a target for the chargers or panthers. If by some miracle he gets past those teams, the raiders could also be a landing spot. I do want him though.

Seriously, answer me this, what has Reich done to elevate JB? What has JB done better since coming here from NE? Foles, maybe a better argument for but JB is still the same thing, possibly worse, than when he arrived.

I watched him today for the first time.   He has good size, Peyton Manning like size but is a much better runner.  I like the fact that he is a good runner.  Showed to be a winner today.  I didn't like early in the game he got his passed block and he is a tall QB, but it happens sometimes.  That interception was a low pass the LB on the line just had to reach up to get it.   If we take him #1, I would not be upset.  I do like DT Derrick Brown at #1 if available to give us a solid defensive and offensive line.  Darius Leonard would excel even more behind him.

I hate Cristobal. How do you take your best player at the most important position of football out of a bowl game for most of that game? Literally EVERY SINGLE good thing on offense for Oregon was done by Herbert and instead of using a top 5-10 pick in the draft at QB, Cristobal decided to pound it inside against a top run defense in the country. Insanity. What a horribly playcalled game. Atrocious. He's been doing that almost all season too. Oregon are lucky to win this one because of the insane efficiency of Herbert in the rare instances he actually got to make a play and the defense and special teams. 

 

Ballard and co have to do their work on Herbert and the leadership concerns that are floating around, but I would have zero qualms if he decided to trade up and get him based on his play and the traits he's shown.

I agree with your point and I've been keeping an eye on him all year as well.  I do have concerns that as a fourth year senior he didn't lead his team more.  I expected BIG things from him this year and we got flashes, moments. His tangibles are off the chart his intangibles leave me to wonder a bit. All in all I like him but not sure why as a fourth year senior he didn't have a larger impact on that team.  I hate talking draft Jan 1. :)

I think that Wisconsin defense was so good he just had a hard time passing and had to rely on his legs. He doesn’t have great weapons. OSU did the same thing to Lawrence the other day. Lawrence and Herbert has pretty much the same game. I would be ok with Herbert. I just really want Love. He looks special to me.

Saw Herbert for the first time in the game yesterday.  I like what I saw...big arm, tall QB, can run, and he's a top academic student, too.

 

I know there are no 100% guarantees with any college QB going to the NFL and we see great success stories from guys drafted in the later rounds, too.

 

It's not an exact science, because if it were, then there'd be 32 great quarterbacks in the NFL.

 

I'm confident that if he Colts draft a QB, then we have the right people evaluating the draft prospects.  Reich knows the position, so that gives us a bit of an edge in evaluations.

 

It's more than just stats, or measureables, but includes character and leadership and potential.

 

We haven't had to think much about any QB we've drafted for over 20 years...they were no brainers before and we had the #1 pick each time.  Going to be more challenging this time around.

Top 5? Nah. Burrow and Tua will likely go in the top 5, but most mocks have Herbert going between 6-11, which is definitely within striking distance.

If he goes 6, you have to trade up to 5 to get him.

Herbert held his own against arguably the best defense in college football. He had to use he legs a lot more this game because of the bad play calling and his wr’s weren’t consistently getting open.

 

Wisconsin had double the time of possession which didn’t give Herbert many opportunities. In the end he still found a way to win despite the circumstances and won offensive MVP. Herbert has a ton of potential and I think will be great in Reich offense.

Wisconsin is far from the best defense in CFB.

Alright, let's get technical then. We would actually have to trade with the Giants at 4 because both the Fins and Chargers are likely to take QB's. I'd be willing to pay that cost for Tua, but not Herbert. 

That's fair... what is the respective price you would pay for all the QBs? Start with the highest ranked and then for the next one assume you missed on the previous one. 

 

Here are mine(absolute most I would give up):

Burrow - #13 + 2 future 1sts + one of our second + future 3d

Tua - no idea... if I had good certainty he will be healthy #13 + the 2 seconds(or 1 future 1st. whichever the team I'm trading with likes best). 

Love - #13 + one of the seconds

Herbert - #13 + 3d

Eason - #34 + 3d (in other words I'd try to get him at the end of the 1st by jumping with the WAS pick)

Fromm - 3d

Hurts -4th

...

Lawrence had to do the same thing when Clemson played OSU. He didn’t have to many big throws either.

I would never move up for TUA. To much uncertainty and injury prone.

    • Kerrigan was upset that he took a backup role with WFT and wanted to be an every down player.  Kerrigan would be a great addition to our Colts and seemed to be very comparable in terms with Houston if not better imo.  Yes Kerrigan is from Indiana and I have been hoping we signed Kerrigan in FA for a while now.  We clearly need proven depth at DE and Kerrigan will provide that.  Right now we have Paye and Muhammad as the clear starters and outside of a healthy Turay I can't trust Bangou and we all know Dayo will be a scratch most of the season.
    • Think the Colts bottom line lacks proven depth at our Edges to an extent.  I do think that Paye, Buckner, Stewart, and Muhammad will be the starters and Turay when healthy flashed real potential in rotations.  After that we don't have proven rotational guys on the edges and Ben is going to be a FA in 2023, assuming we let him go, plus Turay will be a FA next off-season.  It makes sense for the Colts to beef up their DL since we failed to do so in the past few off-seasons and appears we didn't draft that well either.    Depending on how well Wentz plays and which round we start off our draft I wouldn't be surprised if the Colts targeted another top DE.  My early draft projections favorites for DE are Myjai Sanders (Cincinnati), Aidan Hutchinson (Michigan) and George Karlaftis (Purdue).  If we had to sign one FA DE next season I would consider Uchenna Nwosu (Chargers).
    • As previously stated I think it's primarily money now.  He will not play as many snaps as Houston did last year due to Paye and Turay getting back to health.  I think the money is earmarked for Fisher now.
    • Again hindsight is 20:20 but essentially that is what the difference amounts to.   I truly believe it comes down to how folks evaluate Fields and Wentz.    If someone loves Fields then that's the way it should go especially w his cheaper rookie contract.   If someone believes Wentz can be a top-15 QB again (not even the MVP 2017 version but just the Top-15 2018-2019 version) then a lot of times the idea of giving up a potential top-notch pass rusher along w another pick is hard to stomach.   I actually have some faith in Wentz so I am ok with what we did. Fields is awfully enticing though. I hope he works out well for Chicago and that more importantly Chicago works out well for him.    
    • I was for Wentz early, one of the first here. And knew if Eagles were foolishly getting rid of him, he would be more easily acquired than a Fields,Wilson etc... I think we lucked into getting  Wentz and he will be a good QB for us.   But I didn't think Fields, my favorite QB draftee would fall to 11.. and I would have been thrilled & excited if we moved up to get Fields.   It is what it is and be happy we have Wentz and not Brissett, Dalton, etc...
