Now the 34th and 44th loom large


Recommended Posts

Assuming we sign Rivers to a 2-3 year deal we still need to hit on our two second round picks

 

WR Mims, Aiyuk, Shenault  Our top 3 in 2020 Hilton, Campbell and Pascal

 

CB: Diggs, Gladney, Terrell  Our top 3 in 2020 Desir, Moore and Ya Sin

 

Or do you all see a different direction here?

Who’s to say we don’t trade back into the 1st? Not saying we will by any means. But I think the option is there. 
 

Have we even discussed such an option yet?

According to the value chart pick 34 is worth 560 points, and 44 is worth 460 points. This would give them a combined value of 1020, which would get us to the Falcons 16th pick, which is worth 1000 points.

My take...pass catchers (ideally two WRs) and a QB (if one slips) through Day Two. That simple.

 

If there is not a QB they like...then either another pass catcher or OT...perhaps they like Madabuike as much as I do.

IF Ballard is going to move up...like from #34...then I think future picks are used. That #44 pick is a primo spot for a playmaker.

Not sure who would be worth moving up into Round 1 for in exchange for these two picks in the second.  If any of the 4 QBs aren't drafted in the first 12 picks after all the QB shuffling that's going on, then they might just be there for us with that 34th pick.

Unofficially, just a 1 year deal.

 

But if the Colts need another year, and he performed well enough, they can get him for a 2nd year.  PR won't go to a 3rd team under those circumstances.

I like Kmet at 34 and Aiyuk at 44. If we get Anthony Gordon at 75 to sit a year as well, the start of the draft would be perfect.

 

You and I are thinking along the same lines - Denzel Mims at No.34 and Cole Kmet at No.44, draft Anthony Gordon at 75, and Day 3 can be used on drafting for defensive and offensive depth.

I would be happy with this .......

 

This offense needs a TE and a WR.... It early enough that both should be first year starters

 

We need a future QB.... I’m a HUGE fan of Gordon

 

I still think we need some real depth at OT..... maybe round 4,5,6

I like Raekwon Davis DT... same kind of player as Buckner and was coached by our new D Line coach at 44 or 75... I like Marlon Davidson DE... Akers RB, Johnson WR, Claypool WR/TE, Kmet TE... Taylor RB, Arnette CB, Cleveland OT and on and on...

Prospects I like for the 34th and 44th picks include WR Justin Jefferson, OT Austin Jackson, OT Josh Jones, WR Jalen Reagor, WR Tee Higgins, QB Jordan Love.  

 

Honestly, I think Jefferson and Love are FOR sure gone by end of first round. Jones and Jackson may be as well.  Reagor and Higgins could be there at 34.  

 

I'd be happy with Higgins, Mims or Reagor as far as WR in one of those slots and Jones or even Cleveland at 44.

I hope we go WR at 34. Rivers needs another weapon.

That's my gut reaction too, but you know what would be cool is if Campbell shows something this year. That alone makes a big difference imo.

I have a feeling Hines will have a huge year with Rivers at QB so that will help too.

All pass catchers will be having better years. I was so looking forward to year 2 of Hines with Luck after almost setting rookie records... .... sniff sniff... could have been so good. 

 

Ebron probably wants to come back now.

I bet he regrets quitting. Rivers loves his TE too. He was crying on Twitter how much he missed his boys.

Rivers only had one TE above 100 yards last year, and was 4th in total yards in the NFL... So he can do just fine with only one primary TE.

 

I'd take him (Ebron) back though if we don't draft a guy like Kmet or Okwu....

He probably burnt a bridge with Chris/Frank though... 

I also think Alie Cox could surprise many....

I think we will see more Cox too. He had that broken thumb the second half after Ebron left. I think Doyle will have a good year.

I forgot Sproles played with Rivers originally and Hines has been called our version of Sproles.

I mentioned it in a recent thread. I don't know what to seriously think about it. After we had Buckner and Rivers I had a strong feeling we might be looking to package our 2s and a future 2 to move back into the 1st and maybe grab Love, Herbert, or Eason if they fall. But the more I think about these moves I'm now leaning towards thinking the opposite and that we want to use those picks on the best options to have impacts now. WR, TE, and CB make the most sense to me based on need and value. I'm thinking we target a QB in the 3rd or later if at all. If we choose to keep Brissett and eat his contract hit, we could just wait until 2021 to get a QB if no opportunities present themselves.

    • That is how I look at it as well. There is only 1 Tier team in the AFC that is KC. There are a lot of Tier 2 teams though = Bills, Ravens, Titans, Browns, Colts, Steelers, and Dolphins. The Pats might even be Tier 2 but their QB play is still a mystery in how well Cam will play or will Jones be any good. 
    • Regarding Wentz, with the way this team is built we don't need him to be great just efficient.  Top 5 running game, top 10 defense all we need is him to play to the level of a top 15 qb, which is not a lot to ask honestly.  He has MVP capabilities with the right supporting cast so I trust Coach Reich in rectifying any mechanical flaws he may have.  We dont need an MVP qb to win in Indy but we do need him to be in the top 15.  That will be the telling tale of our season is if we have a top 15 qb.
    • At the end of the day it comes down to if the team is better. And @CR91 and others hit it on the head w identifying Wentz as really the centerpiece here.   - Our RBs are the same and should maybe be a tick better as Taylor continues to progress and as we get anything out of Mack this season compared to being without him last year.   - Our OL basically will be the same with some significant depth improvement. Reed is a huge huge improvement at OG if we have a need to play him. Pinter will be another year in and hopefully another year better. OT depth w Tevi and Davenport to add to Holden is way better. So really it comes down to how close to vintage Fisher we get and when. But it is a current concern.   - Our TE room is basically the same w hopefully some more chances for Allie-Cox (which would be an improvement w his ceiling) and replacing Burton who we got nothing out of w the speed and shiftiness of Granson. I think thats a slight upgrade.   - WR room is the same. Hilton cannot be utilized much less than he was last year. He should be a bit better at a minimum, especially w us able to throw downfield more. Pittman is a year more polished. Campbell is the big thing here. People that complained in the media or fan-wise about the Colts not doing much at WR seem to forget we are basically adding a talent in Campbell that would be right up there w top market assets if he can just stay on the field. Basically this group should be slightly better than last year just w depth improvements at the bottom of the roster and the better utilization of Hilton and could be a huge improvement if Campbell manages to stay on the field for the first time.   - QB all comes down to which Wentz we get. 2017 Wentz and its a grand slam. 2018 or 2019 Wentz and it is still a home run as a top-half of the league QB. 2020 Wentz and it is  a strikeout.    Defense:   Secondary remains pretty much the same with Tell coming back, Davis and Davis added for depth. The loss at DB coach is the biggest loss here. But likely we are around the same.   LB again remains almost the same. Walker out hurts the depth and the leadership but it is time for Okereke to get more time and to step up. It could be addition by subtraction but for the leadership alone I'll say we got slightly worse here,   DL is the mystery. Are the additions in Paye and Dayo better than the losses in Houston and Autry? Will a hopefully healthy Turay be better than the loss of one? Will Lewis finally reach his potential w more playing time in the Autry role? Can Banogu show anything? My gut says the DL got better. But they have to produce. it is time for the young bucks to put up or shut up.      At the end of the day my net sum makes me feel like the Defense is around the same with the DL dictating if we got better or worse. We invested in the DL to get better. Now they either show it or its a loss.   Offensively we are weaker at LT until Fisher is healthy. But we are better prepared to handle it than last year. And Campbell really could make a huge huge difference for the offense. It obviously comes down to Wentz. My gut says we are actually better offensively but that we will have some rocky times with Wentz's propensity to fumble and leave our defense on a short field.   I think the real challenge here is that most people see the Chiefs, Browns and Bills as being clearly better. Maybe the Ravens too. So if the Colts aren't "definitely" better than it looks like we lost ground.    But today I feel a lot better than i did yesterday before we had at least the option of Fisher at some point to help on the blindside. 
    • Our D was really overrated last year though. Our ranks dropped like a lead balloon as our SoS increased late in the season. We ended the year ranked very average (15th-ish) in D efficiency. And that's with the 30th ranked SoS..... 
    • Browns have assembled a really good team. I still think the Ravens are the team to beat. I do think teams have figured them out offensively though. Pitt IMO will be good, but they are declining. Miami has a very solid team right now, it just all rest on how Tua does. Pats totally retooled by all the moves they made. Their QB situation will be interesting to watch. Jets had a great draft. Chargers are on the rise too.    Outside of KC, Balt, and the Bills, could see a lot of quality teams in the AFC making a push. KC is still the only tier 1 team though IMO.
