So my question is what happens if Herbert, Love and Tua are all gone by our 13th pick. What would you like to see the Colts do with the 13th pick. 
 

Then the other question is what QB would you like to see them draft and when?

 

For me, if they are all gone by 13th, I’m taking a Javon Kinlaw or Derrick Brown or maybe a Ceedee Lamb if he dropped.
 

As far as a QB, I’m taking Anthony Gordon with the 34th pick. Outside of Herbert and Love, he is my favorite. Outside of him, I like Hurts at 44 or in the 3rd round.

Probably kinlaw. I don’t even think I would take a QB if all of them are gone.  Eason might be the only other one that intrigues me. If there is a QB he loves he is going to have to move up to insure he gets them. A lot of teams move up for their franchise QB.

Just to nip this scenario in the bud, you sign Rivers or Dalton as a stopgap in FA at QB. If your scenario happens, take Brown, Epenesa, or Kinlaw in that order at 13. After that, draft Anthony Gordon at 44 and develop him for a year. Then see what happens in training camp with all 4 QBs and hope someone can break out.

Out of the short range of options we have to try and solve the QB question....this one probably is probably the wisest.... and at least Rivers or Dalton give us a "puncher's chance" at the division/playoffs as Ballard builds the rest of the team and Gordon can watch and learn.

At that point you have a litany of options. Fulton at corner, Delpit at SS, Epenesa possibly, and of course Kinlaw makes a lot of sense as well. Heck you could even trade back a little and take Tee Higgins.

 

I like Tee Higgins, would be cool to move back a couple spots for him and pick up another 2 Rounder.

 

I really like Brown, Kinlaw and Yetur Gross-Matos a lot. I would be stoked with any of those 3 at our pick. I do like Tee Higgins, CeeDee Lamb, and Jerry Juedy but I think the only way I would be happy with one of them is if we move back a couple spots to pick up another 2nd round pick. Otherwise, I would eye Justin Jefferson with our #34.

I dislike this scenario but its a pretty possible one. But if this happens then i am trading back to pick up some picks for 2021 for ammo to move up after a QB. I would say we would fall back to the mids 20's and at the point I'd like Tee Higgins.

Brown, Epenesa, Simmons, Jeudy, Kinlaw, Wirfs, Lamb... Dont care which QBs are drafted... Build that Defense and/or strengthen the Offensive line or Receiving core... No project QBs until round 3. QB in FA...sure. 

That QB risk (Lack of production next year(s)) is not worth the draft capital Ballard has built up. If more than one of those guys are available at our pick...Then I’m ok with trading back a couple slots...pick up another 2nd next year.

i would probably trade back( or up to get a QB if it looks like they will be gone), maybe consider lamb

 

thats pretty early for a DT imo, they would need to be very very good for me to consider a one there.  i would not usually want a guard at 6 either but nelson was worth it, a dt would have to be on that level for me too

Burrow is the only NFL ready QB in this draft. We’re too far down to have a chance at him. So anyone else won’t be an upgrade at QB. I’d trade back a few spots grab a 2nd first rounder for next season, and then take a DT this year.

I’d rather just wait until the 2021 draft for a qb. Get best player available this year, probably would go dline first

What would you think of trading our 2020 1st rounder to let’s say Carolina (who’s going to be in a total rebuild and possibly a top ten pick next year) for their 2020 2nd and their 2021 first? That would give us 3 picks in the top 44 this year and ammunition to go after Trevor Lawrence next year.

I’d be all for that.  Actually, I’d even give them our 1st for their 3rd and next year’s first.  Doubt they’d do it, though.  I’d consider a straight up trade, our 1st round this year for their 1st round next year and just hope they’re terrible so we could get Trevor Lawrence or Justin Fields.

    • Stephen Holder doesn’t expect anything soon either. As a lot of people predicted, this was a ‘see how the rehab is going’ type visit.    
    • The study actually had a 'matched control' group.   ** Abstract Background: Achilles tendon injuries are common in sports, including football. The purpose of this study was to determine (1) return-to-sport rate in National Football League (NFL) players following Achilles tendon repair, (2) postoperative career length and games per season, (3) pre- and postoperative performance, and (4) postoperative performance compared with control players matched by position, age, years of experience, and performance.   Methods: Publicly available records were used to identify NFL players who underwent Achilles tendon repair and matched controls were identified. Ninety-five players (98 surgeries) were analyzed (mean age 28.2 ± 2.8 years; mean 5.5 ± 2 .8 years in NFL at time of surgery). Demographic and performance data were collected. Comparisons between case and control groups and preoperative and postoperative time points were made using paired-samples Student t tests. **   @SteelCityColt could explain the statistical portion much better than I can.     There's really only two surgical methods used to stitch the tendon back together, I pointed them out above. Any (likely team) orthopedic surgeon or foot/ankle specialist can do it.  Players pick special doctors, but people (everyday Joe and Jane's) can and do get non-surgical or operative Achilles repair as indicated by skilled surgeons in their own town.     Feel free to read it, and critique the methods, data, and results if you wish.   https://www.researchgate.net/publication/318691345_Performance_and_Return_to_Sport_After_Achilles_Tendon_Repair_in_National_Football_League_Players     The study is above, I think you should read it in its entirety then comment  Here's another performed from 2009-2014 that paints an even more grim picture.                  v v v https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC6415485/   "80 NFL players were identified as having primary Achilles tendon tears between the 2009 and 2014 seasons. RTP (return to play) was defined as playing in a regular season or postseason game following injury. Probability of RTP was modeled as a function of time after injury in Kaplan-Meier analysis with demographic variables assessed via generalized linear models. Twelve players (15%) experienced a subsequent Achilles tendon tear during or after the study period and were included in the overall RTP rate but were excluded from performance analyses owing to the confounding effects of an ipsilateral retear or contralateral tear."   ** Conclusion: Rate of RTP (return to play) following primary Achilles tendon tears may be lower than previously published. (not reflected in the above study though). However, for those able to return, performance only in the season immediately following injury appears to be affected; players return to preinjury levels if given the opportunity to play >1 season after injury. **   The interesting take from them is in bold/italics.     I've mentioned this before- I feel the patient/athletes biological makeup and their dedication to rehab have a much bigger influence in RTP than the typical skill of a properly executed surgical repair.     They do what they can.  
    • The Colts have $22M in cap space for 2021 but any extension they hand out won’t apply against 2021 cap. They have $90M in projected 2022 cap space. Braden and Maniac will cost about $35M combined. They have $22M in 2021 to spend on LT plus $55M in 2022 with the Quarterback, Defensive Line, Linebacker and Offensive Line basically set. This doesn't include rollover money.    Marvell is coming back after sitting out the season due to Covid and I'm not ready to give up on Rock yet. Potentially, Ballard won't be in a position to draft Stingley or Elam because he might not have a 1st round pick next year and the CB draft class in 2022 not really deep. My question is, will Ballard be in a position to sign someone like Conley's Ohio State teammate Marshon Lattimore if the Saints let him walk? There has been talk about Lattimore coming to the Colts on this forum before. 
    • Soooo Ballard once again told us exactly what he was going to do or not do and why but people ignored it because it’s not what they wanted?
