Will the Colts still target a TE in the draft?


Recommended Posts

With the signing of Burton and the pieces of Jack and Cox already in place I can't decide if they will still take a chance at the position or stay pat with who we currently have. Thoughts?

I think they have to this is a good TE draft and Burton isn't a real number two option he is a TE 3 in my opinion.

I can absolutely see us taking a TE if they're BPA. Burton is a TE2 at best and potentially just TE3. There's a handful of high ceiling TE's in this draft that should be available in later rounds.

This isn't a good TE draft at all.  There is Kmet, and he's far and away the best TE, most years, he wouldn't dream of being ranked that high.  He was smart to come out this year, mostly due to no competition at his position.... He wasn't even the top option on ND's offense, but he's top TE in draft this year.....  Past him, there's another precipitous dropoff to Trautmann and some other FCS type guys.... If a TE is best on your board, sure Burton doesn't do anything to keep you from drafting him, but I don't think you take one if there is anyone at the same ranking talent wise, at another position.

I would argue that this years is better than last years.

    • The goal should always be to stay balanced because some of the best teams historically defensively have been much better vs the run than the pass in the Ravens and Steelers. That is why the Patriots of last year failed. Lamar Jackson exploited them because their secondary was built to deal with the Chiefs. Then the Titans showed them in the playoffs. You cannot build your team just to beat one marquee team because the NFL evolves enough that it is another big dog every year you have to get past.   On offense and defense, you have to build a team good enough to play any style of defense and offense correspondingly. If Frank said that due to the roster deficiencies, then that goes back to Ballard again, which is what you are pointing your observation to.  
    • I hope you jinxed them 2 FF coming
    • Kliff went to HS where I'm at now so I find myself a fan of his 
    • Jon Gruden at the time was my dream coach. That's the type of coach I generally want. I also wanted McDaniels pretty bad, unfortunately that garbage happened to us. At this point, Jim Harbaugh is a guy I like. I don't know all the college coaches, but I'd prefer someone younger who is a great offensive mind like a Kliff Kingsbury or Sean Mcvay.
