I'm down with Kinlaw as the first pick.  Love in round 2 wouldn't be bad but IDK if he makes it that far simply because too many teams need QB's and will be reaching.  Reagor would help immediately.   I don't know enough about some of the FA's to comment on them.  Would rather have Ngakoue or Armstead than Clowney, but he would definitely help.  Like the resignings except I don't think we need Geathers anymore, either that or restructure his deal and tell him he's coming off the bench.

Meh...this your first time?  Kidding...

 

Love the first two picks, don't love the chances of that occurring.  But what do I know?  I secretly hope we sign Clowney, but I wonder how the QB situation plays into that.  Not just in your mock, but if we signed a Brady or Rivers (I feel like throwing up every time I think of the possibility).  Anyway, I still want to see Clowney in a Colts uniform.

Don’t think we need Reagor. How many 5’11” speedster type of receivers do we need?

This is what’s misconstrued about Reagor. Sure, he’s smaller and fast, but he highpoints the ball as well as most of the 6’4 guys in the class, if not better. He’s more than just a speed guy

D J Reader, not sure if he will fit our defense to play several downs. I see the comparisons to Akiem Hicks but Hicks thrived because they had Eddie Goldman at primary NT with the Bears. Reader can also play 3-technique but his strength is his versatility to play 3 or 5 technique plus playing DE in sub packages, which we have plenty of bodies for. So, I don't think the value will be there, based on our roster construction and what Eberflus demands from his DTs. It would be even harder to run against our D with Reader in the line up, no doubt, but our run D is not the one that needs addressed, to be honest. We need guys to generate pass rush down the middle.

 

Clowney, on the other hand, is a great fit for what we do. I am always afraid if he is the kind of guy who would get lazy once money is handed to him. However, if Ballard does sign him, no complaints from me.

 

I do feel Ballard will go after guys with a chip on their shoulder, late bloomers like Shelby Harris of Broncos, and Jordan Philips of Bills for the DL in free agency. Plus, I have seen enough of Chase McLaughlin to figure he is our kicker going into next season.

If Rivers is our QB, throwing it into double coverage in a pivotal game with minimal arm strength, regardless of the OL protection, will doom the Colts' season at some point. Granted, his OL wasn't the best with the Chargers but Rivers was making bone headed decisions out there, even when he had protection. Mike Williams sometimes had to make insane catches to come up with those 50/50 balls. He doesn't have the arm strength like a Brady to gun it in there if he needed, to be honest.

 

I'd definitely take Brady over Rivers, because Brady will not lose the game for you 9 times out of 10. Rivers will lose it for you 5 times out of 10, IMO. Thus, he will not be an upgrade over Brissett, the more I think about it.

 

All the Rivers talk is coming from the media, and his teammates, and nothing from the Colts side.

High pointing the ball well doesn’t mean you’re going to throw him back shoulder fades into the end zone against 6 ft corners. The Colts need a bigger receiver with size. They need a Denzel Mims, Michael Pittman, Tee Higgins, etc... Cant win with a bunch of small receivers.

It's lying season.  I am not at all concerned if Rivers or Brady come here.  I trust Ballard will do the best he can for the Colts and whether we sign either of them, it won't be anything that hurts us down the road.  We all know those guys are on their last leg.

I agree, but this draft is loaded with big receivers. If we get Reagor early we can also grab someone like Chase Claypool later on

    • Meh. We need an upgrade anyway. Would the locker room be happier with Stafford and minus Oke? Would they be happier with keeping Oke, no Stafford, and we draft a mid round LB like Moses anyway who replaces Oke. And then Oke's trade value likely declines even more.
    • With retiring OT, I would be surprised if the team went DL with the first pick. Of course, slot value always tops things, but if equal?...I see Edge/hybrid or CB as a bigger need. 
    • The only guys in the draft that would be realistically attainable, and worth a gamble on, are Lance and Wilson. If either were available at 12ish or later, I'd be tempted to go get (using our 1st and 2nd). Not interested in Fields at all. Doubt that happens, so I would default to my #2 preference which is find a good QB that has 5 years at least in the tank. And Stafford checks those boxes. So I'd be OK with a 1st this year and 2nd next for Stafford.    I don't want to burn/waste a year at all, unless it's on a choice rook like Wilson or Lance. Just tired of wasting years if there's not a hard and fast plan. One has to think Irsay will get impatient if we don't solve for the QB situation this year. JB IMO will never happen because of that reason. 
    • That is very unlike Ballard. He said, "The locker room is watching". I don't think he wants his message to be, "I'll draft you, develop you, and then trade you". Polian might have done it. 
    • The weird thing most don’t know about the eminent domain was that the city of Baltimore was going to wire Irsay 40 million for buying the team, then sell it back from local investors.  This was the final act that started with the odd trade between Rosenbloom and Irsay swapping the Colts for the Rams in 1972. The guy that was going to buy the Rams before this happened was Hugh Culverhouse, who was later compensated with the Tampa Bay franchise.  Another thing many don’t know is that Carroll Rosenbloom got Irsay involved in the team swap to save 3 million in taxes , if he just sold the team. He tried the same kind of tax avoidance scheme when he owned the Rams , putting a majority share in Georgia Frontiere’s name , to get tax breaks. He didn’t plan on drowning , and his son Steve was fired by the step mother.  On a side note, Rosenbloom suckered Irsay into providing the Colt’s Super Bowl 5 trophy for a fake Lombardi Trophy display. He kept the trophy, and the Frontiere family still has the plunder. The replica was awarded to the City of Baltimore, and currently resides in the Babe Ruth museum. The original trophy does not have George Young listed on the trophy , while the second one does.
