If he is still there at the NE and NO pick and they pass on him that’s a easy trade up to get that 5th year option if they actually want him. I wish we knew what ballard actually thinks of him. We will probably never know. We will just hear I told you we wouldn’t force a QB. I’d love falls that far that also means most people have a second rd or later grade on him.

I think when Ballard says he won't "force a QB", it means he won't trade up for one, not take one he doesn't like altogether.

Trading up has nothing to do with forcing a QB. It is not taking them earlier then their value. JL could drop to the end of the first and they trade up because that is where they value him.

Not forcing a qb could mean not taking a qb unless they fall to a specific spot on the teams board. Trading up to the end of the 1st would be an exception because of the 5th year option.

Colts fans would flip out if they took Love.

No not all because the jags would destroy any chance of Love being successful.  He needs a strong coaching staff and organization. He won't find that with the Jags, they r a disaster. If they get the #1 pick next year and I was Lawrence, I wouldn't go. They r a dumpster fire.

Isn’t that what I said. All it means is not taking them before their value. If you have a  early second round grade it’s probably smart to move back into the late first for a QB.

No one is mentioning the Cowboys. Maybe they shock the world and draft say a Love or Tua if the chance presents itself. I really dont beleive they r all in on Dak.  There is still a lot of hesitation on their end. Just a thought.

Yeah, I can see that be thought of.

Oh your right because Dak only has the franchise tag and they have a new coach.

IMO that would be a very good move for the Cowboys if they are not all in on Dak.

Colts have a player in mind if they fall. Who that might be, we may never know depending how far that player falls. I’m sure Ballard has contacted a few teams in the mid twenties, just in case this player is there. Could be love or an offensive tackle imo.

John Clayton is on JMV he says he thinks Love will fall to bottom of first.

So based on this, how would everyone feel if we moved up with picks 34 and 75 to trade with Seattle for Love? I think it's worth it for a potential franchise qb.

A small price to pay, for a “potential” franchise QB.

Packers are looking to move up. That is actually another perfect spot for Love with Rogers getting older. They need a WR too.

I think they trade up for OT

If NE passes on him that could be a warning flag.

From what I have seen they like Stidham. Plus they have no second round pick so I just don’t see QB.

It's probably the back of the 1st.  They trade a future pick.  This years picks are much more valuable considering the uncertainty of the college football season.

It's Jordan Love.  The next Mahomes.   A QB needy team doesn't pass on Jordan Love.  Especially BB.  He drafts a QB every other year. 

With no second round pick I don’t see it. They lost a lot in FA and need a WR.

This is my mock draft.

 

Jordan Love (QB)
Jalen Hurts (QB)
Jonathan Taylor (RB)
D'andre Swift (RB)

 

FYI, I am not serious. The last names on those jerseys would be a riot on the sideline though.

According to Rotoworld they have pick 40.

The Rams have pick 40. Houston had it because the trade with AZ for Hopkins and  Trade it to the rams for Cook.

    • Having eavesdropped into your conversation with NCF, I agree with you, but I think you stated it a bit dramatically by saying that he said the QB position is not the most important.  Let me try to clean that up.   I think at that presser, he was laying out a philosophy that said that he is going to build the team differently than maybe what we've had the past 20 years, where the team was built around the skills of one guy PM then Luck.  He was explaining to the fans the difference between what the fans would see going forward and what they have seen in the past.   I strongly believed that he meant that.  That you can win by building a complete team around QBs like Tannehill, Wentz, maybe Foles (who is still posting a winning record at CHI despite the consistent criticism) and your salary cap and roster won't be hamstrung by one guy.....so your team doesn't fall apart when that one guy has a freak neck injury (or decides to quit mid contract).   Supported by the observation that Ballard was not as choked up by Luck leaving...at least not seemingly as eager to see him come back as Irsay and some fans....so that tends to corroborate the notion that he truly believes that a winning football team is not about one guy...which....would be the QB.   But I'm sure if he ranked the most important positions on a football team, he would list QB #1.
    • Colts WR with Johnny U https://www.foxnews.com/sports/jimmy-orr-super-bowl-colts-dies
    • I feel Ballard has done a great job building this team's trenches. Now it's time to spend more capital on skill positions.  WR has been a sore spot on this team for way too long (since Reggie) but Ballard can't control all the injuries. DE has also been pretty bad (outside of Houston). He needs to figure that out quick.    Luck quitting out of nowhere really screwed this team, and even though I don't care for who he replaced that void with, Ballard put his head down and dealt with it. I also was not a fan of giving Brisket that much money, but hey I'm not the GM.    Or when you hire a head coach and they also quit on you at the last minute, he handled that like a champ as well.       
    • In today’s NFL, it’s almost impossible to be a championship caliber team without a top 10 QB.  Of course it’s not the only position that matters.  They all matter.  But, better or worse, the game has become so much about the ability to move the ball in large chunks.  And not all QBs can make that happen as well as the game requires.   And getting a QB of that caliber is hard.  And I would argue that it even involves some measure of good luck - like a 6th round pick out of Michigan ending up with 6 rings...or a guy like Mahomes falling to where he did in the draft.   Even getting one of the top picks while needing a QB is far from a guarantee.   Every team that doesn’t already have one of them is trying to do the same thing.  And some high percentage of the top prospects don’t ever make it into that echelon.
    • but can he win a SB with 2 different teams
