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.

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.

    • Here is my most updated version...   Ballard trades 21st overall pick to NO for their 28th overall, and late 2nd round pick. (They make a move up for Mac Jones or Trask in this scenario.)    Round 1 Pick 28 (N.O.): Jaycee Horn, CB, South Carolina - I would love to get Horn as our future #1 corner on this team. He has some Gilmore to his game and is a big physical corner which Ballard will love. Corner is such a big need longterm as Rhodes is up in age and Rock is no sure thing to stick with the team for the long haul.  Round 2 Pick 22: Jalen Mayfield, OT, Michigan - Mayfield has the athleticism to play both RT and LT. He hopefully would be capable of challenging to start immediately at LT, and having Big Q next to him will help him out along the way. Round 2 Pick 28 (N.O.): Joseph Ossai, DE/OLB, Texas - A very good overall DE here, in the mold of a Justin Houston. He is great at setting the edge, along with getting pressure as well. He may never be a dominant pass rusher, but playing alongside Buckner will help him get his double digit sacks. Round 4 Pick 22: Alim McNeill, DT, North Carolina State - Yes we already have Grover Stewart at NT, but having another great player to rotate in with both Buckner and him would be beneficial. And forget about teams running on them in goal line situations with Stewart, McNeill, and Buckner all on the field.    Round 5 Pick 21: Amari Rodgers, WR, Clemson - Ballard always seems to draft at least one Senior Bowl player, and I have a feeling Rodgers could be one of those guys. He is sneaky in finding ways to get open and find holes in the defense. He would make for a good slot WR if Campbell can't stay healthy.   Round 6 Pick 21: Marlon Williams, WR, Central Florida  - This guy reminds me of a poor man's AJ Brown. He has the size and after the catch ability to be a threat in the passing game. Round 7 Pick 21: Robert Hainsey, OT/OG, Notre Dame - Simply a depth pick here who can play both G and RT if desperate.  
    • He went roughly 4-6 weeks without speaking with his head coach.   Wentz doesn’t appear to connect all that well with fellow teammates.  He’s a little shy, quiet and maybe reserved.   Yes, if he plays great, the rest will matter less, but it will still matter.    Because QB is the most important position on any team,  leadership is a natural part of the job description.  It comes with the job.  Hopefully the exceptional culture on the team will help bring out the best in Wentz in and off the field.... 
    • Hasn't really accomplished anything to be deserving of a # he wants. Need to show me the money!
    • So Smith wants to play, and he wants a chance to win. So he should sign with a team where his best chance of playing is if the team benches their starter at the end of the season because they're not going to make the playoffs... ???   I'd love to have Alex Smith as our backup, but I don't think this is even close to the kind of situation he'll be looking for. I think San Francisco, potentially Houston, the Jets, Dolphins, Broncos, Bears, all offer better opportunities for Smith to start. And there are a ton of teams that have legitimate playoff aspirations in 2021, including teams from that list.    If he wants to be a legitimate veteran backup on a good team, knowing that the better the team does, the less likely it is that he'll actually see the field, the Colts would be a great fit. But I don't think that's what he wants.   And that's before we even talk about the money.
    • Right now, those three cost ~$13M/year. After this, they will cost 4x that amount.   They deserve it...and will get it...but the cap situation is going to get very complicated with a QB under contract as well (if Wentz pans out). I don't envy Ballard and Bluem here.   Me personally...I would be very interested in at least finding out what type of premium draft capital I might be able to get for one of those players. Not saying I am looking to trade them at all...but there's more than one way to play it going forward and Ballard will explore options. It is just very difficult to outspend every team on the OL and carry a top 10 QB salary (if Wentz plays well enough to get extended) for an extended period.
