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 would change the outcome of the 2009 SB Vs the Saints. There's stuff that could of been more important to us long-term (like Luck staying with the team til he was 40, or Grigson never being hired with Luck), but that SB and winning it would of meant more to this franchise at that point and would of made all the Luck years and the unfortunate ending to it a lot more bearable.    Manning winning two SBs in Indy and then making two and winning one in Denver would of probably made him the 2nd best QB of all time without a doubt, and it would of helped fans get over all the times the Pats won the SB while Manning was the QB in Indy. The difference between 1 SB win and two in Indy is huge, and the difference between two SB wins and three in Manning's career would of been huge.
    • Saw this on Reddit and thought it was interesting    Mine would be 2005 AFC Divisional Round loss to Steelers    That loss still kills me...   This can be anything btw A game A player An injury A preferred draftee
    • I'll pile on you here. Ballard has put together a great team since taking over in 2017. We lost Luck (I blame a combination of Grigson and Luck himself for this), and that ruined 2019 and stunted our growth in 2020 with a one-year stopgap in Rivers. We have Wentz now. He's 28 years old. We'll get a decade out of him to compete if he's above-average or better. He has the chemistry with Reich.   Remember, if Ballard hadn't built a solid team before getting Wentz after Luck retired, we'd be back to 2012. However, because Ballard did the foundation first, we can now try and compete again for a decade with Wentz immediately. We have a few weaknesses, but we have the draft and the rest of the offseason to fill them. We do need to improve our DEs. We can still sign Houston back and/or draft an EDGE in the first two rounds. CBs we re-signed Rhodes and Carrie, and Ballard has shown interest in Newsome, Farley, and Asante Samuel. We could easily take a CB at 21, or trade down and get one. We will get a couple starters out of the draft.    I wanted an EDGE too, and thought it was a mistake to sign Hilton back and not an EDGE in FA, but we have to re-sign our own as well, and a 5 year deal to an EDGE for 12-15 million a year will take away money short and long-term. We have a reduced salary cap this year. The rest of that money will go towards draft picks, offseason depth signings after the draft and UDFA's, and Braden Smith, Darius Leonard, and Quenton Nelson.
    • I believe he was. However, this is like year 2 of Tell's contract and development, so bringing Carrie back will give him an additional year to develop. Maybe he makes the team, maybe he gets placed on the practice squad. I have a feeling he isn't going to be expected to play too much this year unless he proves it in OTA's and preseason, or unless there are a couple injuries.    Plus, Kenny Moore plays slot and TJ Carrie is a backup slot CB. So if Moore is specifically hurt, Carrie could probably fill in Moore's spot 75% as good as he could. That alone is worth $2 million this year.
