Mock Draft- Giving the People what they want- Jordan Love


Recommended Posts

Good mock.  I think if we want the QB, we have to pick him at 13.  Cant wait to trade back up into the 1st or wait for 34.

 

I like the rest.  Solves the DT issue, the TE issue, and probably the WR issue.  

 

Although since I'm told the WR we have get enough separation enough of the time, adding more WRs wouldn't seem to help Love much.  He should play with the good receivers we have now and we can draft more defense instead.

I realize there's a segment of the Colts fanbase and the general media who've fallen hard for Jordan Love but he wasn't even the best QB in the state of Utah. By potential or metrics or eyeball test. Not even close. Ballard knows that, bet on it.

 

Burrow's going to be gone, and if a deal can't be made for Tua, don't be surprised to see a 3rd or 4th round QB come in to learn behind Brissett like Mahomes did behind Alex Smith. Depending on how it all falls, I'd expect the Colts to go pass rush and/or wideout in round 1, and 2.

By all means, tell the WHOLE story on him, this year, and why he wasn't the best QB. And while you're at it, explain why he was the best QB in Utah last year. His story is bigger than just this 2019. Love will still go, at a minimum, 2 rounds higher than Huntley will..

I’m a huge Gordon fan myself. I’ve done numerous mocks and love getting him with 44. I am able to get some amazing talent at our first 2 picks. I also really still believe in Brissett. I did the Jordan Love mock because apparently that is what everyone wants. It’s gonna be a long 3 months. Lol.

It really is.

 

It's also super interesting because there ARE so many different ways we can go at the most important position in football. We haven't been in this situation in a very very long time. Some, like myself, became fans after we had already drafted Peyton, so this is the first "real" franchise QB search, since Luck/RG3 was more of a media argument than an actual contest.

 

I'm very excited for the draft season.

Sure he will, that was not the point. He has the NFL 'body' and a stronger arm going for him.

 

Huntley is 6'1 and maybe 200lbs. Doesn't mean Huntley isn't better at everything else you'd ever want from a QB. Pocket presence/movement, deep passing accuracy, field vision, reading defenses, moving secondary with his eyes, etc. Name it and Huntley's better. Oh, and only one of them was in the conversation for Heisman.

 

Basically, if you're going for stereotypes, you pick Love over Huntley.  Look at the QBs picked over Aaron Rodgers. Look at who went ahead of Mahomes. So even if Love goes #1 to Cincy and Huntley goes in the 6th round to Pittsburgh. If given equal shots at the cherry, I know who I'd bet on to be the better player.

 

Subjective of course but I really value accuracy.

I have no idea why some of you think we want Jordan Love.  So we want a turn over machine because you think he could be like Mahomes?  A more mobile Jameis Winston?  No thanks.   I would advocate for Fromm or Gordon any day over Love.

That's what I don't get.... they lament Brissett's shortcomings in his inability to read defenses and work thru his progressions.... and at the same time, pine after a prospect who according to many analysts has the same holes in his game?

 

And to the tune of a #13 overall selection??

Start watching tape and stop stat line watching. It’s lazy and inaccurate.

Eason and Fromm SHOULD BE 3rd rounders at best, but both may go in the second. A good later round project QB will be Patterson from Michigan. Hurts from OU looks like a great 4th round project..

 

Hurts will probably go undrafted or at the earliest a late day 3 pick. In my opinion he wouldn't even be at the bottom of my list. The LJ-type QB's are something I'm not interested in nor do I believe is sustainable and Hurts is a lesser version of him. 

 

Patterson I'd be interested in later on. I think the talent is there and is workable.

1 word.

 

Quarterback.

 

Teams will give up an arm and a leg for anything remotely resembling a franchise QB. If he has a remotely good combine, he'll be a day 1 pick, possibly top 10 or top 5.

I don’t believe in Brissett and I’m not in the Love train yet.  Watching some tape he looks similar to Mahomes in college but, I think you can get him in the second after picking up some talent.  I am on the we need a QB train though.... badly because Jacoby is turrible

Im on the get a QB you can develop train. I truly believe that an offseason of work,  development and knowing he is the guy. Also competitor never hurt anyone. JB could be a top 15 QB. So I believe we draft a second rounder.
 

If I’m right then down the line you flip the young QB like the Patriots seem to always do for assists.  If I’m wrong, you are at least already developing a young QB you like.

I’ve seen enough of Jacoby.  He has no touch, misses wide open receivers, when they are wide open he over throws them and he hesitates and doesnt trust his gut and throw when he should.

There's a reason why the Pats traded JB, and it wasn't for a soon to be released WR. He's a decent back up but as a started he's a 7-9 QB. Either we take a future QB in this draft or go an get a Andy Dalton try to bridge the gap until a good one falls to us or we can develop one..

So it seems that this is the way that every mock is going right now.  I still depends on the Senior Bowl, Combine and pro days.  Everyone seems to link Ballard with Love.  So I did an updated mock draft for after the Divisional round.

 

13 Jordan Love, QB Utah State

34 Neville Gallimore, IDL Oklahoma

44 Prince Tega Wanogho, OT Auburn

75 Jared Pinkney, TE Vanderbilt

112 Chase Claypool, WR Notre Dame

142 Antonio Gandy-Golden, WR Liberty

173 Alex Highsmith, EDGE Charlotte

190 Reggie Floyd, S Virginia Tech

204 A.J. Dillon, RB Boston College

    • Welp, at minimum, you'll know their grade. And you can read up on anyone you might target on NFL.com prospect tracker if you feel like researching a bit. They have profiles for pretty much every top 300+ kid.
    • Agree that he would likely have been cut last year - whether he would have wound up on our PS or getting picked up elsewhere, I don't know for sure.     As we saw last year, the D 'Flus is running very rarely is a true 4-3 with 4 DL, 3 LBs, 4 DBs - instead, we're using 4 DL and more often 2 LBs with 5 DBs (or less often 1 LB and 6 DBs).   My guess with Ballard not making much effort going after A-Walker is that we'll typically see Leonard and Okereke in 2 LB situations and that they've got confidence in Speed to use him in 3 LB situations.  If not, Franklin (though he had the most ST snaps on the team) is pretty adequate at LBer if needed as a backup.  Adams and Glasgow were used entirely on STs last year and I get the feeling Glasgow sort of carved out a niche for himself as a STer moving forward (i.e., unless drastic emergency, we won't see him on the field as a LBer but he'll be likely to keep a roster spot).     I won't be shocked to see Ballard pick up a LB in the draft or bring in some UDFAs to battle for roster spots.  Heck, I won't be shocked to see him bring in a vet FA if the price is right.  It appears we should be set at LB, though Leonard has missed a game or more to injury each of his 3 years and Oke didn't seem to show much improvement between year 1 and 2.     As I see it now, without any significant additions, Skai has a legit shot to beat out Adams since he probably fits the mold on what we're trying to do on D a bit more and Adams was used entirely as a ST guy last year (i.e., Moore basically needs to outcompete Adams for ST reps or be near him with a bit more upside as a back-up defender).     I still rank OT, Edge, TE, WR as clear needs over LB.  Not as clear, but I have secondary as a bigger need than LB right now, too -- so I won't be shocked if we address the LB position in the draft, but agree that having Moore back gives us the option to go towards one of those positions instead of LB if the BPA is pretty close between a LBer and an aforementioned position.   One thing that'll be interesting to me is how Ballard and the coaching staff treat the guys who opted out.  Obviously we have no idea how conversations went with those players who opted out, and I don't know all their motivations for doing so (I believe Tell had a sick grandmother or something like that)... but I know Ballard doesn't like guys who he thinks opt not to play for their own benefit over that of the team (e.g., saying Ebron quit on the team with a minor ankle injury that Ebron elected to get season ending surgery on instead of toughing out the last 5-6 games two seasons ago).  If Ballard believes (as you somewhat eluded to) that Moore opted out rather than getting cut, I can see Moore being let go pretty early -- if Moore gave Ballard a legit reason to opt out, I hope Moore has kept himself in shape and is ready to ball out, as he seemed like a very solid playmaker at S. Carolina during his college years.       Ballard and Flus both said last year that Speed is as physically gifted as any LB on our roster.  I think it was known he was a project since being drafted -- coming from a small school with limited LB experience (he was a QB in HS, converted to WR as a freshman at Tarleton State, then from WR to DE and eventually DE to LB).  He made a few big time plays on STs last year and in his limited action at LB, he looked fine to me (hard to judge, as most of his LB action was in garbage time).  My gut tells me the coaching staff has seen enough of him that they're pretty confident in what he can do at LB and I'm excited for it -- TBH, just athletically with him, Leonard and Oke we have to have one of the more purely athletic group of LBs in the league (e.g., what we may lose a pure FB player in AW, we probably make up for with Speed's pure athletic ability).     In terms of Tell, I am excited for him.  He seemed to do well in his chances as a rookie and it's impossible to say, but my guess is with some of Ya-Sin's struggles last year, we may have seen Tell take over the CB2 role across from Rhodes by the mid-point of last season.  That said, I'm not giving up on Ya-Sin - I think he'll improve and will be a solid player, especially if we can generate a bit more pass rush.  I know one thing Ballard liked about Tell from day 1 was his ability to play CB or S if need be giving his size, range and athleticism.  Personally, I like Blackmon more as a SS than FS and don't dislike the idea of Tell lining up at FS, Blackmon as SS and Willis lining up in the box against TEs.  
    • Well I won't know who the hell they are anyway :-)  
    • Our goal for the mock is to make it super easy, and super quick, so folks can have a painless experience. As long as you show up 5-10 minutes before your pick to see what is available, you'll be on for no longer than 15min.   As far as needs are concerned, you don't have to follow anything if you don't want. If you get the Colts in the lottery, feel free to take a WR at 21, or even trade up :-) and get one earlier.
    • Sounds good. I'm a computer/tech ill* (my own word, supposed to sound like illiterate), I'll try not to screw it up when draft time comes.   Only disagrement I have with your Colts needs is I think we need a clear alpha WR or TE to take the next step, so I'd put that in the Primary slot. Otherwise, I see it the way you do for the most part.
