HAPPY DRAFT DAY!!

 

For this mock draft, I used NFL Mock Draft Database's simulator. Honestly, Pittman may not last to 53, but a guy can dream right? I think this draft instantly improves the offense and provides some young, developmental players with high upside to take the torch in the next few years.

 

(C) = Team Captain

 

TRADES

MIN 22 -> IND 34 & 75

IND 44  -> PHI 53 & 103

 

Round: 1

22. Jordan Love QB | Utah State (C) -  We jump in front of NE to get our future franchise QB to sit and learn behind Rivers.

 

Round: 2

53. Michael Pittman Jr. WR | USC (C) -  One of my favorite day 2 WRs. I think he would be a perfect compliment to TY and Campbell that can contribute right away and develop into a future WR1.

 

Round: 3

103: Khalid Kareem EDGE | Notre Dame (C) -  Kareem was purely BPA here. He's a 3 down DE with ideal size, length, and athleticism that is great in the run game and could be an even better pass rusher if he can improve on his counters. High ceiling/high floor guy.

 

Round: 4

122. Van Jefferson WR | Florida  -  The best route runner in this draft. He's not going to take the top off of a defense, but he'd be a reliable possession WR and there's always a need for a guy that can consistently help move the chains.

 

Round: 5

161 Tyre Phillips IOL | Mississippi State  -  Massive guy (6'5" 331lbs) with great length (35 1/8”). Tyre played LT in college, only 1 year at the FBS level, but his lack of mobility points to a move inside to G. Dude is an absolute mauler in the run game and a brick house in pass pro, but he can be a bit slow out of his stance and struggle a bit with speed. A year or so of development and he could easily be our RG of the future and in the meantime provide depth at G/T.

 

Round: 6

194. Alex Taylor OT | South Carolina State  -  High upside & potential LT of the future that will need a few years to develop.

 

198. Antoine Brooks Jr. S | Maryland  -  Hard hitting, physical box safety. He's not helping you in coverage at all, but he'll help set the tone when he's in on defense (which would be in certain sub-packages only). At the very least, he projects as a high level ST player and would be a heat-seeking missile on kick coverage.

I like a lot of these picks. Not sure we have to move up to get Love, as it seems a lot of people have him dropping out of R1. Maybe a trade with SF to get to 31 so we have a 5th yr option. Would love to see us get Pittman if he lasts that long. The Jefferson pick at 122 is gold if he is there.

Highly doubt the Colts select two WRs. 

I'm not a fan of it in theory, but he ended up BPA at that spot. You could swap in a TE like Adam Trautman or Harrison Bryant in that spot.

    • Did I misread your post?   Did you not say you were in favor of moving Nelson to LT?   That if we’re going to pay him top dollar, it would be better to do it with him as our LT instead of at LG?    That wasn’t you?    I’m sorry, I thought that’s what I responded to.... 
    • With me, road whites are off-limits.  As to the blue tops, as much as i do dig the color rush blues, I’m an old-school-uni guy, and would lean to white pants.   I’m in Penn State country, and there are some similarities i guess.   I do think improvements can be made in the striping.  Minimal enough cahange to keep purists happy, but could “update the uni.  Perhaps 3 stripes down the leg and middle of helmet.  Middle one thicker than sides.  Not crazy wide.... tasteful like the stripes on a shelby. The middle stripe could be horseshoes similar to the way seattle uses imagry.  Maybe a large horseshoe on each shoulder that circles down around the number.  Minimal...... but updated..... without losing the “brand.”   Remember that outdated font that was recently retired?  A small “refresh” might be nice.   I’d like to see a “ghosted” image of like padding texture or like metalplate image (barely noticeable) at shoulder pads, knee and thigh pads.  Like a 3d effect.   I remember oregon once had ghosted wings on the shoulders that were cool, bit not “too much.”
    • If you read the previous posts, you would see that I don't have a problem with paying Nelson and I expect us to keep him at Guard and draft a LT. So take a deep breath.   This part isn't directed towards you particularly but jeez louise I keep on having to restate stuff 
    • I find it hard to believe some say bench Wentz to save a draft pick. If Wentz is the starter for the Colts you don't bench him, period. End of story. 
    • Well...   we’re going to pay Nelson and make him the highest paid guard in football.   If that doesn’t work for you take it up with Chris Ballard.   He runs the team.
