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.

    • Sure, but it's an easy early indicator. In pure record, we rank 9th. Like I said, some use record + SoS, some predicted DVOA. Regardless, we're bottom 16. Haven't seen a rank that puts up in the top half yet. As long as we have 4 games against Jax and Houston, it'll be hard. Our early stretch is rough, our late stretch is easy. Middle is up and down.   Vegas really doesn't do that though. They'll do record prediction more on a combo of eye test experts, analytics, plus what their experts think will be betting trends. Vegas does get very analytical, but they are not concerned with being accurate lol. Only the dolla dolla bills yo,    
    • Strength of schedule based on last year records is not great. Too much turnover and changes year to year. Vegas lines or some sort of advanced analytics projections are probably better for SoS.   Here's one based on Vegas over unders: https://theathletic.com/news/nfl-strength-of-schedule-steelers-raiders-seahawks-lions-bengals/wa372YuigYZB   This one thinks we with the 5th easiest schedule.
    • Taking a break from NBA (Pacers stink BTW lol), and deep diving the Colts Schedule (will likely post something tomorrow)...  With all the talk on OL, extensions, etc, decided to quickly take a look at our OL and projections, and compare to other teams.   TLDR General Notes Colts Highest NFL OL spend already at 53.3M (prior to extensions), and 28% of salary cap (assumes Fisher's 9.4 is in 2021) Projections Nelson - 18M (+12M) - highest paid LG Smith - 16M (+14M) - top 3 paid RT If both are extended this year, Indy would be spending 79M on OL, and 27ish M more than the next NFL team. If the salary cap goes up to 200M next year (from 188M this year), Colts could be spending nearly 40% of the cap on OL if they simply resign Glow for the same, and that doesn't count a raise for Fisher if they choose to resign. If Fisher recovers, he's likely to get 15M or more next year, pushing the yearly up (+5 or more) even more. Glow, while a bargain IMO, and the best weak link in the NFL, is still making top 10 money. He's in a contract year. See SB teams spend and performance rank farther below.  NFL Position High, Position 10th LT: Top 23M/Y, 10th 14.75M/Y Fisher: 17th (9.4M) LG: Top 16M/Y, 10th 6.0M Nelson: 10th (6.0M) OC: Top 12.5/Y, 10th 9.0M/Y Kelly: 2nd (12.4M) RG: Top 18M/Y, 10th 5M/Y Glow: 9th (5.4M) RT: Top 18M/Y, 10th 8M/Y Smith: 44th (1.8M) Other T: Tevi (2.5M), Davenport (1.1M), Holden (0.8M), Od'Donnell (0.7M) Other G: Reed (1.3M), Fries (0.9M), Elderkamp (0.9M) Other C: Hunt (1.0M), Pinter (0.9M) Current Top 5 OL spending 2021 / 2020 spending rank / 2020 OL Rank 1.

    • Adam Shefter is reporting that it's a one-year deal at $9.4 million. There may be some cap management voodoo going on with it though, so the details could still be a bit murky. If he comes back close to his Pro Bowl form, it's a bargain, and if not, there isn't any long-term cap damage. I think he is certainly worth the gamble.
    • Yup, tough opening stretch, but easy closing stretch.  I'm Ok with that.
