I dunno. The only guy that I really investigated was Love and I don't see it. If you can get him in the 3rd or later to sit, whatever, but I think you're looking at a RG3 type passer. Pretty looking ball, but accuracy, anticipation and touch are all question marks imo.

Hoping the first two picks are players that could start or have an immediate impact.  We are trying to win it now.  

Fingers crossed one of the two is a WR. Need a stud. No more great value stuff

One of the podcast guys made a great point (it may have already been brought up, if so, sorry).

 

He said if we can draft a top OT, we potentially solve a bunch of issues.  First, he starts at RT.  That kicks Smith inside, which strengthens the interior, and makes Glow quality depth.  And the new OT can eventually take over when AC hangs it up.

 

Probably a too good to be true scenario.  But I won't be upset if they go OT with 34.

But if he starts at LT, wouldn't there be a hole if he switches to RT.   Also is there any insurance that a RT can be just as effective at LT?

 

I would be fine with drafting a RT to move Smith inside or a guard to replace Glow.   I'd prefer not to do it with the 34th pick.

Okay, before you ask, yes!  I have been under a rock the past several months. :headspin:

 

Someone tell me why we don't have a pick in the first round?

We traded it to San Fran for all pro D lineman Buckner.  It was a great trade to acquire a position of need.

Is it too early to start complaining about the Colt's picks?

I think the only way i will complain is if they do not draft a WR in the 2nd or 3rd round.

Myles, you need to get into the spirit of the draft! Start complaining early and often.

If they take a LG with their first pick I will be angry.

Nah. We'll go empty stadium if need be. The NFL will have their own testing IMO.

Under a rock is ok.

 

Just want to make sure you and yours are all alright?    If you don’t want to answer here, please feel free to shoot me a PM.

 

Hoping all is well with you.

I was thinking that too. I’d be fine with that as long as I can watch on TV. Football keeps me sane throughout the dreary fall/winter.

 

Let’s hope these players stay healthy :)

I think most players will stay bubble wrapped. 

Yeah, I just don't see the NFL not figuring out a way to make money... even if they miss out on a third of the revenue that comes from ticket sales. 

 

I think it helps everyone keep sane, and we really need it now.

All good here, well as good as can be considering what's going on in the country.  Thanks for asking.  Hope all is well with you too.  I'm hoping the season will at least go on.  :dunno:

 

Who do you think we'll pick tonight?

I hope the season happens.   Just not sure on many things.   Do players get paid if the games are not played?  If not, there may not be many players refusing to play.  I imagine every player will have the helmet mounted face guard on.

Tonight, I’m not sure.   There are so many options.   So I’ll guess an offensive lineman, a defensive lineman and a wide receiver.  
 

So glad to hear you and yours are safe.

I'm not sure either, but I'd bet it happens. Players do miss pay, just not sure how much. I'm gonna bet the next CBA factors in stuff like this though lol... If the games are fanless, and the NFL does their own testing, not sure they really need face shields. I'd certainly have one if it didn't impact my play. No reason for non-skill players not to use them.

    • The best option may be trading a 3rd rounder for Darnold if the Jets get the no1 pick, and having him compete with Eason next year for the starting job. I also wouldn't mind signing Kelly back since he knows the playbook and has potential still. A competition with those three wouldn't hurt us much in the way of draft compensation, we can figure out if we have our franchise QB within the three, and still have a solid draft class.   Heck, in this scenario, Ballard could trade down in the 1st to acquire the 3rd round pick back he traded for Darnold. I trust his drafting skills enough that I believe he can hit on a late 1st round pick.
    • I agree to some extent. I hope Colts pursue the QB aggressively if Rivers leaves. I would be ok trading up too cause a solid QB can turn around an O completely.   Said it before and will again and again  Trading up for a QB is risky but I think its worth the risk and could potentially be monumental to the Colts success.   The key is getting the right guy.
    • I always loved Buckner and have been in favor of getting him since day 1. My issue is the offense. The QB issue, Mack being gone, will Pittman and Campbell be good? How will we replace Costanzo? We have a lot question marks right now, and although they should be answered by the end of the season, it all depends on the QB. We need to have an actual plan after Rivers this year instead of the 1 year band-aids. I don't blame Ballard for Lucks retirement, however, he needs to come up with something to try and fix the situation long-term. If Eason is that, ok, just don't let him rot on the bench like Kelly. I understand sitting him this year, just don't sign a veteran FA and have him sit a 2nd year in a row. That would be criminal. Start Eason, trade for a QB, draft one, I don't care. Just have a long-term plan for the future. That is our biggest weakness right now, and what will ultimately decide if we are playoff contenders for the next few years.
    • Don't rule out bringing Rivers back next year either. The options at QB in 21' are limitless as you can tell with the 50 gazillion threads.    I think the key is to continue to build the trenches.    There's a reason the DBs are on pace to shatter the INT for last year and its because Buckner!
