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.

    • I looked into it, apparently the dude actually is neighbors with Brady's offensive coordinator and Brady was going there to meet him.     Regardless the guy looked pretty well off.  
    • I've already listed them. You're going in circles.  You admitted you were lazy, and asked me to provide sep stats. I provided them. I'm sorry they don't support your pre-formed conclusion. 
    • Wow, what a surprise!   Another dishonest post by you!   Shocking!   We’re bottom 5 only because we’ve had our bye week.   We average 33 pass attempts per game.   So give us 33 more for the bye week and we’d be right in the middle of the pack.     You complained week one for passing too much.  Now you’re complaining we’re passing too little.   But the stats that you swear by price you wrong.  Whoops! This is yet another example of how you use stats to complain.   And it’s completely dishonest!   Again, par the course for you!  
    • They've had a bad OL for a long time, and have have faired better in terms of balance and rushing AVG since Reich's departure while still having a bad OL. It's not that they didn't have good RBs when Reich was there, Matthews got hurt in 2014 and they chose not to resign him. Instead, they drafted Gordon in 2015. Gordon had zero TDs in 2015, but 10 the year after Reich left. What is interesting, is Frank was promoted to OC when Wisenhunt left, then Frank was fired to bring back Wisenhunt. Sirianni was also there those year. Both he and Frank are Wisenhunt products, which I was never a fan of. That Jags game was hard on the eyes. I'm just not sure how much 2018 was Reich's game plan, vs going with the flow of the typical Luck game plan. I agree as well, not all the QB. Certainly some QB issues, but last year's Miami game was just bad on top of bad. And a few games where we went extreme opposite of the teams known weakness. That's my thought almost to a T. Yup, this is the mystery. I tend to believe he was simply along for the ride of what was a "Luck offense" I think the bad Jax game plan in W1 set us up for imbalance later. Reich probably realized it was silly to play like that vs the Jags knowing how bad they were vs the run, while at the same time losing trust in Rivers. That combination drove him to ultra conservative and predictable play calling the next several games. And that was mostly OK because the teams we played were mostly bad.
