The Colts should trade back a few spots in the first round if...

Recommended Posts

If Javon kinlaw is still on the board at 13 the Colts be wise to go back a few spots and still take him. The upside here is that there are quite a few very solid defensive tackles in this draft. I do not want to see a quarterback drafted in the first round unless it's the right one for the future, not a reach

I agree if Derrick Brown is gone.

I want BPA unless it’s O-line then trade back. For a team that didn’t even make the playoffs we need best talent possible.

My issue with this is the Denver Broncos at 15. They will take Kinlaw at 15 if he's there IMO. Since the receiver class is deep and they have two extra 3rd round picks, they will probably take a receiver later. We can probably get Kinlaw, but it'll have to be at 13.

Or if both Lamb and Jeudy are gone also. Would love Lamb as this team’s future #1 WR.

I would still take a QB at 13, we have two picks in the 2nd, they'll have solid DL still available to pick.

So if Ballard drafts a QB in the first round will you consider the pick as being a reach or will have Ballard picked the right one for the future?  You can't have it both ways.  If he picks one in the first I say he picking our QB for the future.

At this point you would be happy just to take just any QB with the 13th pick? 

I am sure glad we have a GM that looks at everything instead of listening to an unhappy fan base.

The FA DL group could end up being pretty strong. Personally, I would prefer to go that route first. I think grabbing an IDL player early is a good bet...but I think the Colts should be looking to build up their offense in this draft.

If all 4 of Herbert, Love, Kinlaw and Derrick Brown are off the board by 13, I'd advocate that because they can still get a quality player for their defense or WR in the 20s.

Is it possible we could get Love with the 34th pick?  I have no problem with trading back a few, but I feel a defensive tackle who can pressure the qb is our most pressing need and I think we should address that before anything else.  Would love to get Love in the 2nd if we could.

Agreed

 

    I think a good  to great QB should be available at 34 or CB could trade back into the 1st to grab one

I think today's win by the 49ers shows us that you don't need a great QB to reach the SB

Thought Aikman's comment that he won 3 SB because of an aggressive run game and strong defence was interesting from the perspective of reaching to get a QB.

Remember....   Aikmans big super bowl years were early-mid 90’s.   The offensive game if football has changed dramatically since then.   With rules favoring offense in general and especially the passing game in the last 20 years or so....

Well, whatever SF is doing.... they’re doing extremely well.

 

At the same time we’re seeing this punishing ground game and stifling defense.... Jimmy G is plenty capable enough and on the same page with the likes of Greg Kittle, Emanuel Sanders and now Deebo Samuel to where when they need a chunk play through the air.... they usually get it.

 

They are incredibly balanced on both sides of the ball.

One thing most forget about Aikman is he was pounded into the ground and out of the league. 

I thought him and Jim Kelly were made of steel. 

Guys like those two is why we have rules to protect the franchise QBs today.

Does anyone get the feeling that this draft may lean towards fixing the offense side of the ball whereas years past the draft capital has been invested more into the defense?

It’s very possible unless Love tears it up at the combine and interview process.

but apparently you do need an inept defensive plan to go against along with an inability to adjust.  Not sure that is something you can count on.

Yes but look at AFC qbs in the Super Bowl since 2003. This coming game will be just the 2nd since then where it is not Brady, manning or Big Ben. Kind of speaks to the value of a franchise qb. Hard to win consistently without one.

Ah yes.  Skill position players that matter.   And none are first rounders?

 

It would be nice if the Colts had three players like that.

I think he needs to find a stud DT in either the draft or FA.  But yes, the rest will be skill position offensive players, IMO.  Probably including QB.

 

We have Leonard, Okereke, Turay, Ben, Rock, Tell, and Willis.  All are guys that Ballard isn't going to replace just yet by investing good capital in those positions this year.  Come draft time, if BPA is at one of those positions, he'll probably try to trade down, IMO.

Jimmy G was drafted pretty high, hes not a great argument for taking a QB late in the draft or not reaching for one.  the 49s gave a high second for him 

 

someone like jordan love could be better than him too

I can agree with you that we have to get the DT spot fixed one way or the other and I personally don’t care if it’s our first draft pick or best FA DT on the board that fits our scheme. If we don’t fix that space, our defense is not going to hold scoring teams enough at bay and getting avg to above avg play from our QB will not be adequate enough. Prime Manning and Harrison and Edge ain’t coming back nor is Luck so I say we resolve the defense first as we look to improve the QB spot and develop it. 
 

and for the love of god, can we use more power scheme blocking for our offensive line and less zone type crap. We have a few maulers, let’s use that to run over people.

As you know, the NFL doesn't allow teams to spend enough to fill every position with all pros, so we have to choose where to put them, and then use those positions to build around.

 

We have excessive talent at the LG spot.  It would be a waste to now build a team around a Mahomes type of QB who needs a LG to only hold a block for 2 seconds, within an O that does not feature power running.

 

We should build it like the Titans or 49ers.  Game manager Qbs who can come up big when it matters but not a QB who the team has to rely upon virtually every play to succeed.

 

If people want that type of O, then we should probably trade Nelson to get more capital to then get that QB.

We don’t even have an above avg game manager, we at least need to fix that starting point. I’m more than fine with having an oline who shreds big open holes consistently for the run game and allow the QB to PAP off of that into wide open zones to our TE’s or quick hitters with our speedy guys. JB doesn’t give us that even very well.

Yeah, who the best QB for the O is, is another debate. 

 

My point is that as soon as Ballard hires Reich to run a quicker paced O than what we had, he drafts a LG who can give us a pocket for 6 seconds, IOW, a pocket perfect for a long developing Chud/Arians or Manning type of O.  Or a Tennessee type of O with power blocking (and CB said that he likes the way TN and BUF have built their teams).

 

KC does not have a great Oline.  They make up for that by having a QB who makes having a great oline a fairly decent waste of capital.

 

Sorry folks, I just don't see us getting a Mahomes-like  star QB, given where we have already invested our recent draft capital and Ballard's comments

  I can't see us trading back if an elite graded player is available, but the right offer could do it.

 CB will attempt fixing our interior DL and he won't wait for the draft to do it.

I would take a QB in the second.  We aren't as desperate to upgrade at QB as people think we are, and nothing we're likely to be able to acquire in the draft is going to be an immediate upgrade anyway. 

 

Pick up a guy who can understudy for a year and be productive in 2021.  It's what's going to wind up happening anyway IMHO.

Therein lies the issue I have with Love. If he does well at the combine and interviews, he’ll be a higher pick, but still not worth the 13th. If he doesn’t, then do you really want to waste the 2nd pick on day 2 on a guy who has some bad stats and games and didn’t show up to the combine? It’s a big mess

I agree and hope you’re right. I would hope he spends money in FA if for no other reason than signing Chris Jones. Then in the draft try and score Brown or Kinlaw and then double dip on that position a little later as well. Then.... we’re on our way, IMO.

I just feel like if we came away from the draft with a DT, QB, WR, TE from the first 2 rounds of the draft, then that would be awesome. And with the ability to trade back in the first (maybe Philly's 21 and 53 overall), the Colts could also do something like the Redskins did last year which is trade their 44th pick and next year 2nd for around pick 26ish. Giving the Colts potential selections 21, 26, 34, and 53 to come away the likes of Cole Kmet, QB of Ballard's liking to groom (with 5th year option), Justin Jefferson, and Neville Gallimore.

 

Which would allow for next season's draft to be OL and more Defense.

 

Granted this scenario all blows up if A) Anthony Castonzo retires, B) Derrick Brown is still at pick 13, C) What happens in Free Agency

This....  if we can sign a difference maker like Jones then we can pick a wideout in the first.  Another DT in the second.  If we can't sign Jones then I would only trade down if Brown AND Kinlaw are off the board.

    • Also wouldn't mind adding Chris Jones for a KC reunion with Houston knowing full well what Jones is capable of creating pressure on QBs but not so much help in the run game.  Figure Jones will get around 21m/year if he does hit the market.   However I would like to see the Colts look at NT/LDT Javon Hargrave ((Steelers) who can do both jobs attacking QBs and stopping the run.  Hargrave should be a cheaper option commanding around 15m/year.  Can not see the Steelers having the cap space to resign Hargrave at this point in time.  Add someone like Gallimore in Round 1 of the draft and our DL has greatly improved over last year's unit.   Another high target FA wouldn't mind adding to replace Walker in the middle is Cory Littleton who would help in our run game.  Littleton will more likely be looking to get a 17m/year contract.  Am curious how well he can play switching from a 3-4 base LILB to a pure MLB in a 4-3 base and continue to be dominant?    
    • Steelers are in a worse cap crunch case and need to be within 30% of CBA resigning players this year.  NT/weak-side Javon Hargrave would help part of our DL issue and is better vs the run than Chris Jones and would cost less to obtain in FA.     By all calculations on team-based needs Brown and Kinlaw should be draft early leaving Gallimore available for us to select in Round 1.  Autry is our weakest DL and biggest disappointments this past season.  Gallimore in college has a history of forcing a fumble or two,  getting to QBs and even been credited with PBUs.   Houston was a great FA addition at weak-side and continues to play strong be it a 3-4 or 4-3 base defense.  In Round 2 I would like to see us address our SS or even TE but would not mind adding more depth on the edge with Jonathan Greenard (Florida).  Greenard would help add depth to our weak-side rotating with Houston who is a FA after the upcoming year.  Enjoyed watching Greenard's game tape vs Miami and him punching the ball out.  Maybe it was the turnover chain motivation but the kid is good FFs and defending passes.  Just the awareness to not only make game tackles but mental aspect to look for ways to create turnovers at the same time playing full speed has Greenard on my radar to pick.  Greenard should hear his name called early in Round 2.   The other edge player who has caught my eye as of late is the Michigan State walk-on Kenny Willekes.  Willekes insanely high motor and ultra-competitive played both weak/strong side with success FFs and PD.  Willekes I figure will go Rounds 2-3.   Adding and upgrading our IDL to force more inside pressure on QBs will help our edge players when the QB gets flushed out of the pocket.  
    • Maybe not that, but he got waffled upside the head by a gym machine today!  https://www.google.com/amp/s/amp.tmz.com/2020/02/20/antonio-brown-gym-accident-video/?ved=1t%3A45442      
    • What is your bar for a high draft pick going on year three? (DE)    Are you satisfied with a Turay just being depth player? 
    • That's a pretty high bar. So he has to have at least 10 sacks to impress you
