I think he'd be a steal if the Colts got him with a 2nd round pick, but I honestly just can't see him getting past the 1st round. He's got just too much athletic playmaking potential, and I can't see there not being at least one team, and likely more, zeroing in on him.

 

As just one example, if he gets to the Niners at the end of the 1st, I can't see them letting him go. I can even see them taking him with the 13th pick they got from Indy for Buckner. I think he has that much potential.

 

But heck yeah, if he's somehow still there at 34, I'm taking him immediately.

There are sources from the Bengals saying Mims will be Bengals' #33 pick if he falls to R2. Those are not to be underestimated because the same sources were saying Mixon won't fall past the Bengals in R2, too... 

 

So yeah... even if he falls in the 2nd round, he very well still might not get to us at 34.

There's going to be a guy everyone has as a top 15-20 pick that falls to us. Maybe a OT? Most likely a WR since the draft is so stocked this year. Higgins or Mims, if both fall what would your pick be?

If I'm the GM I'm taking Mims. If he's gone I would go BPA regardless of position or trade down and take Higgins, Reagor or Claypool with our next pick.

Mims. I think Higgins is a bit overrated. Got exposed in the playoffs against better corners

Personally, don't think they are drafting him and his 2.8 yard average of YAK. 

 

Plus it's too public and against Ballards m.o.

 

Shenault, Aiyuk and/or Claypool. One or two of them I can see as a Colt. Big, strong, run after and solid blockers on the edge and downfield with teams abilities.

Unlike Mims who had a monster game in the Big 12 Championship game?  :)

Something TELLS ME WE COULD GET Jonathan Taylor OUT OF Wisconsin with the 34th pick. Most of the models I've seen have him falling to round 2. I could see that, we need another quality running back and he looks like a good one..

Taylor, Dobbins, Swift or possibly a couple of other backs - if any is there at either 34 or 44, which I have to think some will be, I'd love to see them get one of them. Given how much more likely it is for a talented running back to be able to produce in his rookie year than at most other positions, I can only imagine what this offense could look like with Mack and one of those guys mashing teams for 4 quarters behind this line. Or heck, save the draft pick and sign a productive guy like Carlos Hyde, who I believe is still available. But even using a draft pick, they still have high picks in the 2nd and 3rd round to get a good receiver and another talent at another position.

With Mack, Hines and Wilkins, why do people think the Colts will draft a running back when we had almost nothing in the receiving corps last year. I think a running back in the fifth round would be a reach.

Due to the Colts not really possessing a true power/bruising running back on this roster. I would be fine getting a guy like AJ Dillon in the 5th if he were there.

    • The plant-toe should primarily affect his ability to throw deep.  I don't see how it changes anything about the offensive game plan.
    • First, I should say you're seeing dramatically more than I am.    I've only seen a few games, and then hi-lites from most of the others.   Second, I should say what I often say with you.   That I admire your view and your judgement highly.   Always have.    All that said...    I think you're making far too much out of far too little.    I think expectations for all our rookies are outsized based on who they were....   but without the benefit of a normal off-season,  and without 4 pre-season games,  and then all the games Pittman lost due to injury,  I think expectations remain unrealistically too high.   Same with Taylor and others.   I'd cut Pittman lots of slack and not worry too much about what we're seeing until roughly a year from now.   Seriously.   I still think of Pittman's future as incredibly bright.    But maybe that's just me?      
    • The guy who shanked the punt (and had another blocked for a touchdown) was Trevor Daniel. Allen was their punter before him, taking over when regular punter Brett Kern was hurt. Allen played 1 game for Tennessee, a Week 9 victory against Chicago in which he averaged 50.5 yards per punt on 8 punts with a long of 65 yards but the Titans inexplicably replaced him with Daniel for their Thursday night matchup against us, and we all saw the corresponding results.   Kern is back as their punter now.
    • In that case, given how good their defense is, we just don't punt, lol  
    • Would be very happy with this scenario.
