Absolutely nothing. 

people are going to lose their minds no matter what. We could redo the 1998 draft and 50% of the people on this form would want us to trade back and NOT draft Peyton.

I could see it - Ballard is going by his board and not by need - if he waits until round 4, so be it, but he will add some talent through the draft at WR. And the signing of Marcus Johnson will have 0,00 impact on what's happening during the draft. I like Johnson as a depth signing though. Probably WR 4 right now behind Hilton, Pascal and Campbell - Fountain should be ahead of him talent-wise, but who knows after not being on the field the last 2 years.

IMO, the only decision that Ballard has made this offseason that impacts the draft is the Buckner trade.  We are no longer in the market for an elite IDL. 

 

I'm not sure that even the Rivers signing will impact our QB draft strategy beyond what we would normally do with the 34th pick and beyond.

Nothing cause he isn't that great...

He is pretty good. Another deep threat who is excellent at tracking the ball. The only game where Jacoby actually threw up 50/50 balls was in Tampa and he actually went up and got them. If he makes the team he will be a good 50/50 guy fit Rivers. But it won’t stop us from taking one at 34.

yep that's one of life's guarantees. Death, taxes, and people complaining about what's done in the draft.

Yeah... I seriously doubt it. Everyone on this forum would be happy to get Burrow at this point, let alone Peyton.

Trading back, seems to be an obsession for many. 
 

The bulk of the mocks on this forum have trades.

 

100% agreed

Team loves mediocre WR play

 

We've got TY, who when healthy is solid.  Jury's still out on Campbell.

 

I think the team wants better than 'mediocre WR play', but between Pascal, Johnson, Dulin, Fountain we'll probably be cutting 2-3 guys who will wind up playing on another team.

I bet Dulin doesn’t make the team. Pascal will go back to KR since he won’t be the number one WR. Johnson is good depth. 

Ty, Campbell, pascal, draft pick, fountain, Johnson. That looks like a good group of six to me.

TY Hilton = #1 WR

Campbell = TBD (Possibly a 2 WR?)

Pascal, Johnson, Fountain = WR 3's

 

We need better receivers on this team.

Better QB play will help.

Good depth signing I suppose. He's an undrafted WR that caught 17 balls for 277 yards last season. 

Looking deeper, he played in 6 games.   Expand the stats and he could have had 45 catches for 736 yards.  With JB as QB.  He's not a stud, but he is a great depth piece.

I think we still need to take one or 2.

No that year we had to draft him or this team would be the laughing stock of the league for probably the next 15 years.

I think I'd prefer 1 in the 2nd round and a TE.   Late round WR's may have a ceiling of Johnson or Pascal.

Ya Chester Rogers territory.

Pascal has a far higher ceiling than Johnson.

I can't argue that.  I don't think the gap is too big though.   My point is that I don't want to see the Colts draft a WR in the 5th-7th round.   Unless of course someone with great potential is there.  I wouldn't want to see them draft a comparable player to compete with Johnson, Pascal and Fountain.

I'll go 1 step further...  when you draft a QB in the 1st you expect him to play right away.  We traded out of the 1st...  qb taken in the 2nd and beyond, can learn from a vet for a year or 2.  we signed a vet with a year or 2 left in the tank.  Might be a guy we really like in the 2nd round but my money is on us taking someone like Jalen Hurts in the 3rd to sit behind rivers for a couple years then take over.  

Either rivers is solid and a qb can sit behind him, or he sucks and we tank the year for Lawrence

    • I know exactly what is says, and it still reflects on Cam's ability to create a passing game. If you can't see that, too bad. 
    • So what is your correct opinion on this?    What simple stats am I denying?     I'll wait for your replies and anticipate more of your snark.    
    • When Reich was the Chargers OC, they had no RBs, a bad OL, and a prime Rivers. Reich's play calling was often questioned, and without really watching them I don't have an opinion on the quality of his play calling, but it's obvious the circumstances influenced the decision to be pass happy. I think they tended to fall behind in games back then, also.   But I definitely question his flow and rhythm at times. For the most part, I thought he was really good in 2018, with a couple struggles here and there. That late season loss to the Jags was an F, the first six weeks of the season were rough (when Luck was trying to get going, and the OL was being shuffled due to injury), but I felt like he was a B+ play caller in 2018. Since then, there have been fits and starts, and I don't think they can all be blamed on the QB. In fact, I've felt like some of his issues have been independent of the quality of the QBing.    Someone mentioned the lack of balance in the Jags opener this year. Prime example. Then other games, they stubbornly ran the ball even when it wasn't working. I mentioned a little while ago that I'm starting to wonder if Reich is just a typical conservative head coach and play caller who just goes for it on 4th down more than you'd expect.    Then I go back to 2018, and he seemed to have a great feel for the game, and a good play calling flow. Where Reich ended and Luck began, we can't know. And it helps when Luck is the trigger man...    I will say, I'd like to see our coaching staff help a limited QB overperform, as opposed to just retrenching into a super conservative mode every time the QB makes them nervous.
    • I think it was Bubba Smith, but he may have been liquored up also ! 
    • Yup, and yup. I have zero idea who he is. In SD/LA, he was pass happy, with absolutely the worst balance in the league. In Philly, didn't call plays so hard to draw any conclusions. Year one in Indy, I have to think he went with the flow and simply wasn't going to change the O too much. Year two, had a skill deficient QB, so can't draw any conclusion. Year three, he has the same QB again he was pass happy with in SD/LA, but is far more conservative. Almost nothing that allows you to draw any conclusion about identity.
