Draft

 

Colts trade their 44th pick and next year 2nd with the Chargers

 

1. Justin Herbert QB Oregon

 

I think the past year has showed that Brisett's limitations especially with passes past 20 yards will keep the offense from being effective and not allow us to take advantage of Hilton and Campbell. Herbert has a beautiful deep ball and can actually move inside and outside the pocket.

 

2. Justin Jefferson WR LSU

 

Its a stretch yes, but there a lot of good WRs in this draft so he can fall to our redskin pick. Jefferson's had an amazing 2019 year as Burrow's top option and this allows him to grow with Herbert

 

3. Kyle Dugger S Lenoir-Rhyne

 

Small small prospect with huge upside at 6 2 215 and 4.4 speed. Gives us a replacement for Geathers and adds much needed depth to our secondary.

 

4. Matt Peart T Connecticut

 

I don't see the colts re-signing Clark so the colts will need oline depth. Peart has good size and durability and we know how much Ballard loves seniors.

 

5. Harrison Bryant TE Flordia Atlantic

 

I like Bryant as a project TE to learn from Doyle and Mcdonald. Played well in 2019 with 1000 yards and 7 scores.

 

6. Aaron Parker WR Rhode Island

 

Small school prospect with great size and a big stat line in 2019

 

6. Christian Rector DE USC

 

Rector will fall in the draft hard after a horrible 2019 season, but prior years he showed a lot of talent with 12 sacks the past prior seasons.

 

7. John Houston Jr ILB USC

 

Provides us with some LBer depth

In Ballards press conf he stressed the importance of getting a 3-tech and how it’s a key to this defense   we may agree to disagree    I bet we get a 3-Tech with one of first 2 pic

I think CR91 is right is wanting a 1Tech DT. We really missed Woods early in the season. Having a big DT really helps out everyone else... if he demands 2 blockers every play then that means 1v1s for

Autry had 9 sacks the previous year. 5 this year. Also Stewart emerged as a pass rushers. We have dlinemen that can rush. What we don't have is someone to keep olinemen off our LBers

   And but why would the chargers trade that pick when desperately need a QB?

I re-signed Castonzo, haeg, and drafted a T. We don't need a 3 tech. We need a 1 tech. Autry and Stewart can get to the QB. We need a clogger like Brockers to help our run defense.

 

Browns did it for years skipping on Watson and Mahomes

By far the funniest thing I've heard in all my life. I laughed harder than Ha-Ha Clinton Dix.

 

Our run-D was one of the tops in the league, 7 out of 32 teams despite having the smallest front 7. Passing D and pass rush were avenues that needed to improve.

Did you actually watch the game? Our line was pushed back with ease at times, but our secondary was suffering with injuries so teams passed more. Our run defense is a problem

I think they are going to sign Brady to be their QB.  I just read today that Rivers has sold his home in San Diego and is moving his family to Florida.  I can really see Brady to the Chargers happening.  JMO.

Getting rid of a 38 year old for a 43 year old.?

 

I see LAC going with Herbert

 

If they want Brady to mentor fine, but Brady is not the answer to LAC hole

Its not an age thing at that point. Your not looking for a long term QB your looking for one to get you to a super bowl right now. So age doesn't matter. If they think Brady could get them to a super bowl with the roster they have now then yea its a no brainer.

On the surface it doesn't make sense but Brady is playing better and they are in a win now mode.  Opening a new stadium with the GOAT would create a lot of excitement.  I wouldn't be surprised if Rivers sees it coming.

A) Autry is barely above 270 and not an early down guy. The 3 Tech needs an upgrade over Autry for early downs.

 

B) Stewart is a 1T and played there all season. The Colts could use another guy there too.

And you can just move Stewart to the 3 with Brockers playing the one. Fixes our run defense and we can still rush the QB

I really hate to keep arguing with you 

 

you are an intelligent poster, but I think you are mistaken on this point

 

Last year means nothing

 

He had 3.5 Sacks THIS year

 

MOST draft analysts that I have read say that 3-tech is a top need for this team

 

I would say most of the fans on this board would agree with that

 

From the press conference I’d say that CB agrees with that as well

 

 

 

Lewis is fighting for a backup role 

 

We need Kinlaw or another top 3 tech to get 10 sacks and many pressures

Not saying we don't need an upgrade. I just think our run defense is a bigger problem.

Stewart has THREE total sacks.   How does he fix the pass  rush problem?

 

Two 1 techs will equate to less sacks

That's for early downs to stop the run. Autry would still be our main 3 tech on pass downs. Stewart has improved dramatically so he can stay in on run downs with Brockers then move back to the one.

As a side note

 

We finished 7th against the run and 30th against the pass per NFL.com

 

Pass rush would seem to be a MUCH bigger problem than run defense

 

i would agree that Stewart has improved

Misleading. We had a ton of injuries in the secondary. Moore missed games as did Desir and hooker. Teams opt to throw, but we did have issues stopping the run when teams did run.

It doesn't work like that. And that would be about as ridiculous as them trying to make Tyquan a DT.

 

How so? The Rams did it with Suh and Brockers. Bucs did it with Suh and Vea. Two of the better run D's in prior seasons

Ideally you don't want Stewart, nor Brockers, on the field on 3rd down. A guy like Kinlaw, 3T, fits better because he can play the run and rush the passer through all 3 downs. Stewart and Autry split the early and late downs with him. Getting another 1T doesn't do much to help the pass rush on the 3rd and obvious passing plays. That's why people, and myself, have said another 3T is way more important than another 1T guy like Brockers, and especially paying that much money for him.

Did I say anything about them being on the field on third down? That's why you put your pass rushers on third down which Stewart showed this year he can do, but you need to control the LOS first which we didn't do all year hence why we need Brockers

And I didn't either, however YOU keep insinuating Stewart is a passing rushing DT and he's not. He's not even an average one. *hint* That's why came off the field on 3rd downs... AGAIN, that's why getting another, better, 3T is more important.. 

 

The run defense suffered because Autry is out there early when he shouldn't be, our currently starting 3T

Not a fan of the draft. Waste of our 13th and 34th picks. 
 

need two blue chip prospects in those positions. Not a Backup QB and a receiver or the like...we could probably get at 44 or 3rd round. 

 

You realize 1st round QBs don't stay backups for long right and there is no way Jefferson falls to the third round.

Saw all 3 from beginning to end, our run D was more than good. Teams were never a threat to run the ball on us.

 

You might see 1 run in each game that was 10+ yards, most of the time, teams had trouble running on us when they did. Vast majority of all runs that I saw in the games were for 2-3 yards or less.

125 yards. If you watched the game, you'll see most of those yards were outside the tackles, by scat backs.

 

The ONLY game where we struggled vs the run was the Raiders one, and that was when Hunt was starting, not Stewart.

125 yards is still bad and not all the runs were outside. Not to mention Gordon didn't even play.

Why on earth would Ballard spend another 10 mil on Funchess when he got nothing out of him this past season? Injury or not that would be just stupid. 
 

And instead of paying Hilton that much over 4 years, Ballard would be wise to keep in mind his age. 
 

And Indy has to find impact players at DT and possibly OT.

    • The Mack comment was just to point out it was 3 with achilles, not two.  It had no other connection with Dayo or Fisher.     I’m looking at it this way.  Ballard has been working this since FA... really before that.  FA didnt pan out for a starter at LT  which happens.  But we may have the beat depth this year than we’ve had for a long time.  And ALL across the line.  So then  The draft fell the way it did.  I can understand that.  Meanwhile Ballrd has still been working it.  Fisher?  Leno?   The history he has is a good thing.  It always is.  You know them better, in all ways.     Ballard felt “good enuff” to take the risk, cuz if it hits...... bang!    And i have a feeling Ballard is gonna still be looking to improve our “plan B” if Fisher is slow to return.  Cuts will offer some help as well I’m sure.  I’m not sure Fisher is the last addition/change to the OL mix. Just having Him in the building could help at the position as well.  Lots of knowledge , vet leadership, and dudes respect him.   Who knows what could happen, bit I’m more comfortable today than yesterday about the LT position. Hoping for the best.
    • Exactly this.   That being said, Villanueva was gone and depending who you listen to we either did or didn't have any interest. Some people said we had possible interest in Leno. Maybe we did, maybe we did not.   I saw nothing linking us at all to interest in a guy like Okung.   So to me if the option is "Sign Fisher and hope for the best" or "Stay with what we have and just roll w/ Tevi, Davenport, Holden" then this signing is a home run.   I think the only issue is our fans looking through the prism of "Risky signing or Fisher instead of a steady Leno". There-in lies the rub. If we really did pick Fisher over Leno then I agree w some fans being concerned on the risk/reward factor especially with only a 1 year deal where some of that year could be missed.   If we really truly were never going to pay what it would take to bring Leno in or we did not have nearly as strong of interest in Leno as some hoped or as we showed in Fisher, then this Fisher deal was a big win rather than just sitting on what we had.   I wonder if we will ever know the true interest in Leno or what any discussion w his camp were like if they occurred.     
    • A couple 3rd round picks that didn't get a 2nd contract yay I'm glad Mahomes is fine with that!  If our Colts are not the #1 threat to the Chiefs, who is?  Buffalo?  Tennessee?  Baltimore?  We went into the playoffs w/o a LT and the WORST coaching experience in the history of the NFL, missed kicks (AGAIN) but somehow still had the game in our hands to the very end only to be defeated from everything already mentioned.  No Turray = NO pass rush no matter how many ALL PROS we have in Buckner or Leonard just doesn't matter unless we get to the QB and we clearly did not.  This staff took notice and that is why they invested our first 2 picks on DL pass rushers no matter the cost.  This staff had a clear cut back up plan if the draft didn't offer our #1 need in LT and they addressed it by a former #1 overall pick that should be healthy come OCT.  A steal in my book and finally this staff went after the big fish on the market vs what many here call CAMP FODDER.  Project this team come Jan and I think you will be happy with the outcome.  30yrs old is nothing vs all other options.
    • What if it's zero?   That sounds like a terrible insurance policy.  
    • If that happens it happens. Only person out the money is Irsay. Taking a risk on Fisher is good insurance. No matter how many games he plays.  Irsay is the only one that is losing money. It isn’t stopping us from signing anyone we want and it’s off the books if it doesn’t work out.  I think of it as added insurance in a long season.
