The only one I really don't want, is Fromm. Not excited about the G or DE picks either.

 

Why do you dislike Fromm so much? Watch him win championships for the hated Pats. He seems like someone that the Pats would draft.

 

Btw, you're a big draft guy. Will you be following the Gavin Mock Draft on the Colts Forum? We are going seven rounds.

A little surprised all the love for Eason, and a little surprised Gordon was not picked at all.

This is just a summary of the Colts first pick, that is why there was no Gordon.  As much as I like Gordon I think he is a 4th round pick, maybe a 3rd round if they hear something from his agent.

I've watched Fromm a bunch through his career, and several games in person. Many of my friends are UGA fans, so I've hear plenty from them too.

 

In short, I see a pure game manager at best, with a very questionable arm. They had such a good OL and running game, he didn't get a lot of focus from opponents. His performances really varied a bunch too, which is weird if you've looked at his game logs.

 

Purely my opinion, but UGA would have won the NC had they kept Fields. Sure he might have success as a game manager in the right system surrounded by a lot of talent, but I'll never be on board with a game manager offense.

I think it includes multiple picks. Check out the link. Shows two selections for a lot of the mockers. Just my opinion, but I see Gordon gone by R3 and may creep into late R2. A lot of big boards had him above Fromm and even Hurts. They all fluctuate, but he got a nice post combine boost from some boards.

Ok, 2nd round picks but that is it.  Still, that is the reason for no Gordon, he's not a 2nd rounder

I don't see Fromm as a second round guy either. And Hunt and Simpson either. Definitely not Simpson.

Ok, the thing is they did not enlist your big board.  Most draft pundits see both Simpson and Fromm with a 2nd round grade.

CBS's big board list Simpson as 127, Walter has him at 173. I've also seen him as high as the 2nd round, but frankly he's all over the place. Given the reviews I've read on him, I don't see him going in the 2nd. Way too deficient in pass pro, slow off the line, and way to many holding penalties.

I will be following. I was going to tell him to put me down as an alternate if anyone pulls out late.

I did something similar with guys that take it serious last year. Fun stuff. Not big on being another team though.

And the Draft Bible has Simpson has the #1 guard and a solid round two prospect.

As long as we're on the topic of Georgia football and you're a Bulldog fan.... how do you like Jamie Newman coming in from Wake Forest?

 

And if the Colts stand pat with Rivers - JB - Kelly.... how about him as a prospect for next year? 

 

IMO.... he's similar in traits to Jordan Love, but against much netter competition.... and maybe a guy to watch.

Fair to say CBS and Walter might be a little more mainstream/experienced..... never heard of Draft Bible. Draftek has him 2nd as well. 

 

In short, I can find several that have him in the 2nd, but also several that have 3rd-5th. He's certainly not a unanimous 2nd round guy, which is the point. And given our needs at WR, TE, and now CB (which is arguably our biggest need now), I doubt we use 2nd round capital on a G with mixed reviews.

Draft Bible is the consumer publication from BLETSO.  The information is purchased from all 32 NFL teams, so maybe not quite so fair to say.

Bite your tongue!!! I am not a UGA fan lol... I'm a HUGE ND fan. I've gone to games with buddies who are UGA fans, and also went to cheer for the teams playing them (on the road and in Athens).

 

As far a Newman.. He's an interesting case. Not a great surrounding cast at WF, and has definitely had his ups and downs. Looked horrible vs some ACC teams. Looked pretty good vs MSU in the bowl. I do think he's an upgrade over Fromm though. Won't likely be as safe, but IMO, he's got a higher ceiling.

Wouldn't take him now, but he's got a huge opportunity in front of him to raise his stock. If he can have success vs good teams instead of padding his stats against chumps, he could rise fast. He'll have a great OL and great skill players around him.

At this point, I still like Love a lot better in terms of ceiling. And I wouldn't give WF too much credit for competition. That league is super top heavy now, and WF's SoS was terrible. Out of conference games were a joke last year. 

 

And FYI, Newman played Love (@WF) last year. WF obviously has more talent compared to USU, but USU almost beat them (38-35).

Wouldn't he have to "creep" into late round two in order to be gone by round three by default?

Bletso provides scouting services like several companies do. Doesn't mean their big boards are superior. Their website looks rookie level. 

 

Walter and CBS placed 3 guys in the top 10 in terms of accuracy last year. How'd the Bible do?

If anyone pulls out, I will let you know.

 

Btw, did you see that one of your favorite non-Colts donated 82,000 meals! He needs to win Walter Payton Man of the Year next year. He does great work in the community.

 

Vikings tight end Kyle Rudolph and his family made a donation Monday to Second Harvest Heartland to provide meals to Minnesota residents who are being hit hard by events due to the coronavirus pandemic.

 

“What a better way than to kick it off with 82,000 meals,’’ Rudolph told the team website. “We kind of like the number 82 in our house, so we thought that would be a great way to get this started, with a goal of much more.’’

 

Rudolph and his wife, Jordan, have set an overall goal of helping raise $200,000 for Second Harvest Heartland, which will provide 600,000 meals for local families.

Yup, Rudolph is boss. Always wished he would have ended up a Colt. Such a great guy.

Accuracy of a mock draft.  I will slow clap later.

 

Actually there are only two companies that provide scouting services to the NFL and neiterh is CBS nor WalterFootball (though Walterfootball is may favorite consumer site)and both require each team that contracts with them to have send a scout to work with them.  So yes, their big boards are superior because they are done by actual working NFL scouts.  Not former scouts, not scout wannabes, not fan forum gurus, guys who's jobs depend on getting this information correct.

LOL.... they both put out mocks... they both put out big boards..... The Draft Bible and their scouting reports can be had for $19.99. Their services to the NFL look to be very rudimentary and geared more to identifying the diamonds in the rough and are pretty bland. I also did a quick google on the company. Looks like BLETSO had 4 full time employees and uses a lot of x players as sub contractors to do their scouting. And teams aren't relying on BLETSO for the big stuff. It's just a surface input.

 

Here's one of the articles I found. 

https://www.catscratchreader.com/2014/2/5/5382854/a-deeper-look-at-blesto-scouting-services

 

Feel free to slow clap. You're suggesting one service is more accurate than another. I'll go with the service that's been top 2 the last two years in accuracy.

Gallimore is an interesting prospect to me. Some risk/reward to him. He needs some work, but playing alongside Buckner could be just the ticket. What if he can become just 75% of the player Buckner is? He and Buckner could be an offensive line’s worst nightmare. 
 

I really don’t mind the idea, to be honest.

You can use whatever site you want, but I will stick with the source that NFL teams pay several hundred thousands of dollars each year to use.

I think you need to do a little google research on them. I read several articles on both BLETSO and National. You're really giving BLETSO too much credit..... And for 19.99, you too can have the same reports the teams do lol.

There have been some pretty good game managers through the years. Bart Starr, bob griese, heck, you could even make the case that Brady was a game manager for a long time. Getting into the right play, making the right read, and getting the ball out quickly are good traits.

    • Watson started this recent public trade thing by stating that the organization has flawed hiring practices.  And I think he never debunked the idea that the current owner was a lot like his father, simply because he is his son.   Its not really about the next season or even the team's won loss record over the next three years.  Its bigger than that.  I think it would be smarter to not accommodate whiners, and in a legal manner, not set the precedent of accommodating someone who conducts detrimental actions that undermines the new coach and the authority structure of the organization.   If you accommodate Watson, you set the precedent that all whiners need to be accommodated or else you end up singling some out for disparate treatment.  This shows what a cancer players like Watson are to an entire organization.    And, I would think a player like that has limited trade value, despite the rumors.  I would  simply move on from him....forget he even exists...would be the less time consuming and smarter move.  If he wants to sit out, fine, but I'm drafting this spring with the idea that he's going to try to put me at a disadvantage and wait until after FA and the draft before he tells me he wont play next year.   There is some root of the problem that has yet to be revealed.   If its about making bad personnel decisions, resulting in a losing record, I get that....but the HC, OBrien who was responsible for those moves was fired months ago.  Seems like Watson and Watt are still holding some kind of grudge over something, or simply launching their marketing brand by grandstanding.   If I were the GM, I'd just ignore Watson until he apologized for those statements instead of honoring his wishes, and then if the team struggles, show to the whole world what people like that can do to a team, blame the teams failure's over a whiner sitting out the season too arrogant and stubborn to apologize for something he should not have said in the first place.       
    • The 2006 team was the greatest and it is not even a debate. They went 10-0 at home including the playoffs, 16-4 overall, and most importantly won the SB = they finished. The 2005 team during the regular season beat teams by a wider margin but lost in the divisional round. That team did not have Adam Vinatieri either, the 2006 team did. In 2006 we seen the best of Bob Sanders in the playoffs and we went through Ray Lewis/Ed Reed/Steve McNair at Baltimore, and beat Tom Brady and Bill Belichick in the AFC Title Game. Also in respect to the 2009 team, that team didn't have Vinatieri either, nor did it have Marvin Harrison or Bob Sanders, Dungy wasn't the Coach as well. It is 2006 hands down.
    • Probably 2005, that  team was loaded and then played a tragically bad game to the sixth seeded Steelers in the playoffs.    
    • In addition to some of the examples from @stitches:   - Was your offense restricted last season by having a less mobile QB? If so, in what ways? - Your offense was bottom third in play action attempts last season. Can you talk about how play action fits in your offense, and how it might be affected by the physical ability of the QB? - Your defense had some really good stretches, but was less effective against good QBing. (Example, short clock but long TD drives against the Bills/Packers, etc.) What will it take for the defense to take another step forward this season? - What will be Press Taylor's role on the staff? Will that differ from his role in Philly? - You went from a RB coach with decades of experience, to one who hasn't played or directly coached RBs so far. What went into that decision and what kind of impact might it have on the RB group? - At what positions do you think you most need improved playmaking? - How do you think the limited college season, no Combine, and restricted travel might impact prospect evaluation? - To what extent, if any, do you think being the primary play caller impacts your game management and decision making? - Do you still have weekly protection meetings like you did in 2018? How might those be impacted by the changes on the coaching staff?   Just saying, there's a lot of meat out there. Don't have to keep gnawing at the same bone.   Imagine this group trying to cover Gregg Popovich...
