I don't think Cain is the answer any more(considering he plays for Pittsburgh)

34th Cole kmet     44th jalen Reagor   both 2nds need to be offensive skill guys.   

Tee Higgins WR Clemson.

If Love falls (doubt it) to mid 20s trade up.

 

I would be ok with Ezra Cleveland or Josh Jones.

 

WR there's so many options. 

We I’ll have a lot of ammo if he falls or even to trade back into the top ten with both those second rounders. 

 

I like Mimms.

Wide receiver.

Since we didn't get Hooper, we probably need a tight end also.

I'm just glad we found a defensive tackle.

IMO they need another TE as much or more than WR (unless they feel Campbell and Cain aren't the answer) BUT it's far more likely there will still be some outstanding WR prospects available at #34 (& maybe even #44) than outstanding TE prospects.

 

They can likely still find a decent TE prospect (Hopkins? Parkinson?) at #75, and if someone like Mims or Aiyuk is still there at #34, I think you almost have to take him--and hope maybe Eason or Hurts is there at #44.

My bad: I was thinking of Fountain but wrote Cain.

 

In any event, I think it really comes down to Campbell's progress...and health

I'll stay QB. Eason if he makes it out of the first round, maybe Hurts.

 

we can go WR at 44

IMO #34 is probably too high for Eason, and definitely too high for Hurts, but I'd be surprised if Eason lasts until #44--his arm is too good for some team to pass up, even if his mechanics still need work. So maybe #34 depends a lot on Ballard's FA signings.

 

Hurts, on the other hand, could last until #44, has good character, and is a lot more mobile than Eason FWIW.

Yes I believe he did

Will there be someone sitting there CB just can't pass up? Like Kmet.
My odds say no and he trades back. 

#34 is so close to Round 1 that there's a good possibility someone drops down to there that another team really covets and Ballard feels the Colts don't need

Oh brother.  I think by the Colts making this move they were never interested in Love as I predicted

34. Jordan Love 

 

44. Chase Claypool 

 

75. Adam Trautman 

 

 

 

I'm going to predict Love is going to fall out the first round. Tua, Burrow, and Herbert are going to be the only 3 Quarterbacks selected in the 1st round. Even if he slips to the back of the first Ballard can trade back into the first and get him.

HAHAHA .  I thought we had to trade up to 3-5 with multiple draft picks to get Love!

With no 1st Rd pick, the trade 34th chatter is comical.

 

Give it a rest! 

What the Heck are you talking about?

 

First round talent often falls to the top of the second round.    If we don’t trade the pick odds are the player we take at 34 is on the Colts first round board. 
Rock Ya-Sin was last year.   Ballard said as much.

Doubt today's move has anything to do with interest in Love. Buckner was simply a move you can't pass up on, and has been easily one of the teams biggest needs the past 2 years. All Pro / Pro Bowl DT that is arguably in the top 5 of 3Ts in the league.

Let me reiterate, which I should have done. I highly doubt the Colts trade back from 34 to acquire more picks. That pick is almost like having a 1st. 
 

Happy now? Probably not, I’m guessing.

Should be a WR. But I will just say this...Day Two should be entirely devoted to the offense. I am stubborn...and judging by what I have seen in player rankings...you won't convince me that BPA isn't an offensive player at any of those draft positions (Madabuike probably the lone exception...however...he would be a luxury pick with Buckner locked into the 3T position).

 

Colts passed on a good opp to do this last year...I hope they don't this year.

I'm praying Justin Jefferson, Jalen Reagor, or Denzel Mims is there. Would love to have JJeff, but he probably just ran his way into the 1st with that combine. I think it's likely a WR or TE, if they're signing Rivers gotta give him some weapons. 

Same, if we're not going QB at 34, then I want one of the 1st round talent WRs who might fall out of it. This may be a deep WR but that doesn't mean there aren't drop offs at certain points and besides a deep draft for a position doesn't mean amazing guy can be had in the later rounds, it more likely means more WRs are going earlier than they normally would. BPA and all that.

I know everyone wants Offence but any chance AJ Espenesa  falls to 34?

 

I don't really want the guy, but I think we certainly could see some defense in round 2. Verrry few forum mocks seem to want to see us address a CB any time before round 3  but I still think it's a position we could use and upgrade at and there is sure to be some good DB available at 34. I still think we're more likely to go offense, but just saying.

I don't think Ballard would take love at 34. Ballard has said that if a player is not on his board he won't take them. If Ballard had love on his board he wouldn't have traded away 13. My guess is that he is not on his board due to either the marijuana incident or maybe just his character, not that I or we know his character is bad but maybe when the colts interviewed him he gave bad and undesirable answers.

    • I remember it like yesterday, then read the reasons shortly after the selection, and they made sense.  Edge played at The U, which ran the stretch, and the Colts were running it as well.  Edge also had fewer miles on his legs, due to being in running back by committee for most of his career there.  Lastly, Edge was the better receiver and pass blocker.    I sometimes wonder if Ditka thought about making that insane offer to the Colts first? 
    • I don't care how he tested (especially this year, when all those pro-day tests are under serious question)... I care how he plays and how he looks on tape. Players that didn't test off-the-charts are some of the best playmakers in football - Mahomes ran 4.82 with 30 inch vertical. I'd take him over any of the best athletes in the league making plays on the move. With that said... I don't see Mac Jones in similar light even though they tested very similarly. I don't think he's stuck in mud in the pocket. But I do not think he has enough mobility to scramble when needed. He will be one of the worst scrambling starting QBs in the league IMO. I think him scrambling will be extremely rare in the league. I just don't think he has the mobility and physical talent to do it while launching the ball downfield.    I like him too. But there are levels to this thing. I like him as a late first-second round QB. I think he can be a good productive QB in the right system(Shannahan system for example). I don't like him enough to give up 3 1st round picks + 3d for him, though. This is my whole contention here. He's just not THAT type of player IMO. Lance and Fields are. 
    • You may end up being right, but I hope that we add some talent here   As a HUGE Ohio State fan....  I WANT Lewis to step up....  He seemed to improve a bit, but, in my opinion there needs to be a talent influx on the DE   I have a recurring nightmare of Patrick M........ getting 30 seconds to throw...
    • Also, just because I'm starting to feel some kind of way about this, Mac Jones is getting short changed these days. He's a really good prospect, and people are treating him like he's an unathletic bum with no arm.   Blake Bortles went #3 in 2014. Sam Darnold went #3, and Josh Rosen went #10 in 2018. None of them were unable to succeed due to athletic shortcomings. Mac Jones tested just as good, if not better, than all of them. (Bortles was actually pretty good as a scrambler, despite his mediocre testing.) I already used the Jared Goff comparison; he went #1 in 2016, and went to the SB in 2018. Mac Jones tested as good as Goff.   He doesn't have super speed or quickness, but he's not stuck in mud. He moves well enough to stay alive in the pocket, and he has enough movement ability to scramble when needed. He doesn't have a cannon of an arm, but his arm is not deficient. He's very good from the pocket, he processes well, not a one-read thrower, very accurate, and tough.    If Bortles, Darnold and Goff could go top five in the last 7 years, so can Mac Jones. Of course, he needs to be better than them to live up to that draft status, but again, their issues weren't about lacking athleticism.    Just saying, again, the anti-Mac stuff is getting a little overboard. I like Fields and Lance better, but Mac Jones being desirable isn't entirely outrageous.
    • I am a little confused?  So you are advocating a less talented edge at 21 than more talented OT?  Or am I just reading this incorrectly?  Because I believe the difference in OT quality and Edge quality at 21 clearly favors the OT.
