Colts & possibly landing Jerry Jeudy

Recommended Posts

Both Mel Kiper and Bucky Brooks from NFL Network have the Colts drafting WR Jerry Jeudy with the 13th overall pick. I do believe either Lamb or Jeudy will be available once the Colts are on the clock.

Would you be in favor with getting either Jeudy or Lamb at 13 or are you dead set on drafting a QB even if you have to reach or trade up? My opinion is I would be just fine getting a dominant WR round 1 who can easily be the alpha WR on this team for many years. Hilton is getting up there in age, and this team needs a future #1. Give Brissett someone like this along with Hilton and see what he can do for 2020.

I’m not too hyped about the idea of taking a WR at 13. Doesn’t have anything to do with it not being a QB, just would rather go for DL.

 

There could be some serious WR talent at 34.

I am going to be fine with whatever Ballard does because he has earned that.   I would be stoked with Jeudy if what i read comes close to being true.   However, no rookie is going to easily be the alpha when Hilton is there.  They will be a Beta who the Alpha trains to be the Alpha when he hangs up his cleats.

If Jerry Jeudy is available at #13, it will most likely mean that no fewer than four QB's were already taken, and both DT's Brown and Kinlaw were taken, and possibly even the top two OT's as well.  In this case, Jeudy will probably be the highest rated player left on our board, and we should take him for that reason alone.

Cards or Jags will take him imo.

Yes. I think Jeudy is one of the blue chip players in this draft and I would be very happy if we drafted him in case we don't like any of the QBs.

with his advanced route running, he'd be a contributor immediately while learning from TY. Like how TY learned from Wayne before taking over the #1 role.

QB and DT are much bigger needs. Especially with this deep WR class.

I agree.  Would much rather get Love or Kinlaw with the 13th pick.

this comes down to do you think herbert or love are a reach at 13?  i dont think they are, especially not herbert.  i would prefer tua over either one and would not be mad if they traded up

 

first round receivers have not panned out all that well lately either i would prefer d line over them

That's how i feel as well.   If Tua is a possibility i would trade up for him.  It is a risk but the draft is in vegas.  Where else do you take a gamble?  In the alternative, i'll be happy with Jeudy.

It depends. If we sign like Chris Jones or Javon Hargrave and the QB we want is gone, then yeah, I think it Juedy or Lamb fall to us we have to really consider it.

If he's BPA, then do it. I'd also have my eye on Brown and Kinlaw if available.

Jeudy and Hilton together would be pretty special.  No more holding the ball as if nobody is open.

personally, I don't think there's a QB worth a dang that is going to be available at 13. So QB is likely out. Based on Ballard's interview about winning in the trenches and how he feels the OL has been addressed but we need to address the DL, I look for a NT/DT to be taken in round 1.  I think WR at 34 is a high likelihood after that.

yeah I'd love to waste the 13th pick on a WR that will not be utilized by our terrible QB

I don’t think WRs are worth top 15 picks anymore. Hockenson went 8 which I think was high for a TE but the first WR didn’t come off the board until 25 with Brown to the Ravens last year. After that it was Harry at 32. Year before that I think Ridley was the first off the board at like 24. Last time receivers went top 15 we got Davis and Williams and the results have been mixed.
 

And if you want a hot take for the draft, I’d take Ruggs over Jeudy. Rugs is an underrated route runner, once he perfects that and adds it with his game breaking speed, he could be better than Jeudy. Lamb and Jeudy don’t really get me excited.

That was just a product of the talent the previous 2 years. I expect there to be receivers taken high this year.

I don’t doubt that 2-3 receivers might go high. I just don’t personally think it’s good value. Especially for us. Much rather see a DT or QB there. If not that gimme the best defensive player at any position except LB. Epenesa at Edge, Fulton at corner, etc

As much as I love Jeudy as a prospect, I'm doubting Ballard would take a WR that high as well. At the moment, I'm pounding the table for Kinlaw but him being available at #13 might be a stretch.

No need for a receiver if you don't have a QB to throw to them.

 

Marvin was drafted before Peyton and look how that turned out.  Take BPA regardless.

Yeah for me option 1 is QB and option 2 is Kinlaw (If the top 4 QB’s are gone). At 34 I’m all for taking the best WR on the board.

Our WRs are fine. Who needs a talent like Jerry? Would much rather continue the trend of having our QB try to drag along mediocre WRs. Seemed to workout so well for us

It's interesting...because while I do think there are WRs worth a top 15 pick...I also have longed believe that Day Two is the sweet spot...and it frustrated me that Ballard hadn't pulled the trigger until last year. 

 

I have said this before...but I would probably draft a WR on Day Two every year until I got it right. If you looked at impact players at respective positions...I am willing to bet that WRs index much much higher than most positions for Day Two players...outside of maybe TE. Skill positions in general...are great investments on Day Two.

 

That said...I would be happy with Jeudy or Lamb at #13. I think both are blue chip WRs. There are certainly WRs that can live up to that billing...though not so much recently. The expectations would be sky high though. 

 

Given how deep this draft class is...I would prefer a Day Two double-dip at the position...if they don't use one of those picks on a TE. There are only so many positions with wide open spots...and I believe WR has at least two of them.

Yeah...there could have been some hesitancy after 2016 and 2017...but this class it too talented to not have a couple taken early. Some team is going to pull the trigger.

Hilton, Jeudy and Campell would be a sweet WR group if they remain healthy.

Jeudy seems to be a blue chip talent. If blue chip talent is available with your first pick, you take it. Unless Herbert or somehow Burrow is still available, there is no need on gambling on a qb, wasting a pick possibly, then seeing dude ball out while we have a bust.

    • 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
    • There are more than 25 WRs rated 6.0 or higher this year, so not really worried if the 15-20 are gone by 75. I think 15-20 is pretty unlikely as 20/75 would mean that 27% of all picks are WRs (WRs only make up 11% of starters).... I also think there will be several quality X WRs still available at 75, which IMO is our biggest WR need.
