Adam Schefter Colts making calls to move up from 34


Recommended Posts

Hopefully Love is gone before we can do anything. This QB class is as about as mediocre as the 2018 class (of which only Jackson has shined and he went toward the end of the 1st). And it's amazing the legends and myths of these guys that grow as a result of these QBs being the only ones to choose from. 

 

Just ride with with Rivers, improve and fortify other areas of the roster this draft and see what our options are at QB next year.

I want to see the Colts move up and take an OT. First, because we need to find AC's replacement soon, or to give Smith the slide inside.....   ...but also/kinda, to watch some of you melt do

Lets call ourselves the Jordan Lovers.

If what Reich is looking for in a QB is Jake Fromm then Reich’s days as our head coach are numbered.  I don’t see what everyone sees in Fromm.  All those traits you listed are highly exaggerated & deserve asterisks. Did you see how weak his arm looked at the combine?  I mean clearly the weakest.  What in his numbers makes him the most accurate QB in this draft?  Over Tua & Burrow?  Please.  

I'm sorry you judge accuracy by numbers.  I judged it by watching him throw.  By watching him throw place the ball exactly where the receiver was running and releasing the ball before the wr even started his break.  I watched him do that time and time and time again.  

 

And nope, I didn't see how weak his arm was at the combine, I saw he didn't have as strong an arm as someone like Eason but when it came to actually measuring the velocity of the ball, he was right there at 53 MPH, right in the average NFL arm.

His best numbers don’t even measure up to Hurts fill in time his last year at Alabama & definitely not his Oklahoma numbers.

I really wanted to like Hurts as a QB, so i watched every game of his 2019 season and he is not a good QB.

 Herbert better than Fromm at just about every thing you listed.

I like Herbert a lot and if I were in the war room and it was between Herbert and Fromm, I'd take Herbert, but none of that takes away from Fromm's attributes.

Also, I think Fromm has regressed since riding on the backs of a star studded team to the championship game.  Since then he’s taken that same talented team & underachieved.  I wonder if it was politics that kept him in the starting job because Fields is clearly the better QB.

This whole paragraph is a joke, he loses 4 WRs, his TE, his RB and his center but it's the same team?  And I'm guessing politics didn't have anything to do with it, but it probably had everything to do with Fromm was the better choice for what the coach wanted to do and Fields did not want to sit for a year.  Either way, Fields is the one that left with his tail between his legs, not Fromm.

Didn't Burrow leave to join LSU as well when Fields was the starter for Ohio State?

No, he left because of Haskins won the starting job over him.  Burrow leaving is what opened the door for Fields.

I knew he transferred from Ohio State, didnt remember who was the qb then.  Thanks for the correction.

You watched him do that time and time time again yet the numbers don't show that this season when he was asked to carry the team.  I just don't think he's the kind of QB that can carry a team on the NFL level.  He seems like a game manager and would make a great backup.  But let me ask you this CD?  Do you think he's a better QB than Chad Kelly?  And if so, what are the attributes that makes him the better QB?  I wanna see if you can sell me on the Colts spending one of our 2nd's or even moving into the late 1st for Fromm.

I do think he's better than Kelly.  But I'm not really going to waste time trying to "sell you" anything, it's obvious you are not buying because you have already made your decision.

 

But I will say, I don't know how you can say he didn't carry the team, they lost a close one to SC that they probably should have won and they lost to LSU.  And that was with a very poor receiving corps and a weak interior oline.

No.  I actually hadn't.  I know Kelly played in the SEC and also beat Alabama.  Just wanted to see if Fromm is worth a late 1st or 2nd round pick (especially with us having Rivers) to the Colts right now.  Us being an indoor team could be very beneficial to him.  He'll get 8 games in great conditions.  10 if you throw in Jax & Hou...  But is he "that" special to draft that high?

Makes no sense. Hope this is not true.

Saw this on Twitter. They said he is arill

following the colts on Instagram and all of the players on the team. This this is just smoke. Also the local guys have confirmed teams have called the colts about his availability, not that the colts have called teams about trading him.

Maybe he could be in play to the Saints as well.  They get like 11 warm/controlled weather games.  He could sit behind Brees for a year and pick up some tips from Drew who would probably be happy to groom him...  Maybe Fromm could have some potential to the right team and right and environment...  Colts & Saints are both in win now mode.  They'd have to really be sure on him to take him that high like KC was with Mahomes.

So close there for Love @Chloe6124

 

 

I hear you but I wonder if Love was on the Colts radar. If they thought he was a great prospect , then shame on CB for not moving up to 22 to take him. With NE and NO at 23 and 24 , if you love Love , you gotta make that move.

 

Just reading that Rapport claims the Colts wanted Love. So I guess if true Ballard screwed up good.

    • We don't have a qb,  so no we don't need a wr more than a qb
    • My pick for QB would be Michael Gallup. Oh wait, he's a WR. Yeah then I will still take Michael Gallup as we need receivers more than a QB right now.   Send Rock to Dallas for Gallup. 
    • Gus Johnson is a play by play guy.   Romo is color commentator.   They don't have the same job.    Both are very good at what they do,  but they do different things
    • I see many of the draft "experts" talk about what the Colts will do in the draft.   The draft process on the QB position, even with all the improved scouting techniques is a highly flawed .   If you look at history some interesting facts come out. Drafting a QB in the first round is a high risk endeavor    In the past 9 Years 20 QBs have been drafted in the first round.  I wanted to come up with some metrics to see the % that have worked out with the team that they drafted them   I am "measuring" the results with the simple question,   Would the NFL team make the same draft decision, at their position in that years draft, in hindsight - Its a YES/NO decision   For the ones that are still TBD (last few years) I counted these as YES. The selection of Goff as a "NO" is not that he is a horrible QB, but a simple question.... If you could do the pick again would you take Goff at number 1 overall.....  my guess is the Rams would have gone another way   2012 Draft Round 1 1st Andrew Luck - YES 2nd Robert Griffin - NO 8th Ryan Tannehil - NO 22nd Brandon Wheedon - NO   2013 Draft Round 1 16th EJ Manuel - NO   2014 Draft Round 1 3rd Pick Blake Bortles - NO 22nd Johnny Manziel - NO   2015 Draft Round 1 1st - Jameis Winston - NO 2nd Marcus Marriota  - NO   2016 Draft Round 1 1st Jared Goff - NO 2nd Carson Wentz - YES 22nd Paxton Lynch - NO   2017 Draft Round 1 2nd Mitch Trubiski - NO 10th Pat Mahomes - YES 12th Deshaun Watsun - YES   2018 Draft Round 1 1st Baker Mayfield - YES 3rd Sam Darnold - NO 7th Josh Allen - YES 10th Josh Rosen - NO 32nd Lamar Jackson - YES   With this data, drafting a QB in the first round is a 30% hit rate   The folks that want to give up 2 or 3 first round picks to move up to get Fields or Wilson may want to think deeper on this   From my perspective, and looking at the analytics it would appear that drafting the best BPA OL, DL , CB, or even WR,  available at 21 is the safest approach   And going with an extremely low risk/ low cost FA (Winston) or if the deal is decent, offering a trade to get Matthew Stafford. (Stafford route is my first choice), but I wouldnt want to  get fleeced in the trade.   If the right LT isnt there at 21, there are a few FA OTs that we could pick up       Let me know your thoughts...........
