Ballard for two guys that will contribute day one.    

By the end of today, Goodell will be reading the picks from his bed

Buckner is a freakin all-pro. Relax.

Malik Hooker gets anxious as McKinney drops.

 

2 years ago, I picked Turay in a mock with @danlhart87 just before the draft, didn’t expect it to happen in the real draft. This year, I picked Xavier McKinney yesterday??? :thinking:

Love must really be mediocre because NE and Indy had chances to pick him and they passed over him. 

His velocity is the same as "noodle armed" Jake Fromm.  54 vs 53 Made bad decisions over the middle.  Floaty passes into coverage means picks.  And before someone says he had a strong arm, no he does not.  Its above average.

I don't know any of these guys this year for the pass rushers.  Is the class kind of weak?   I'm sort of taking it that way because only 1 team has drafted a DE or OLB so far.

Both are top 40 on Gil Brandt’s board

Yes it’s a weak class for pass rushers

And they said earlier (their little panel) he throws the best long ball out of all QBs in the draft....

 

noodle arm... sheesh..

You got Ballard on the horn? Ask him if jelly or jam on his toast. 

He's more of a marmalade kind of guy.

Greenbay was afraid the colts were going to move up. He fell far enough that should of been a trade up if he truly liked him. If he liked him shame on him for not trading up a few spots.  You can’t wait and be passive. Poor Rogers needs WR lol. Hopefully this means Ballard was not sold on him rather then him being passive.

Like I have said many many times.  U can even check my posts. I don't think Love was ever their choice if they ever were thinking of drafting a qb. If they believed he was the guy, they would have traded up.

they really needed both OL and DL. 

a little surprised they took Wilson though. Thought Cleveland was a bit better, was a bit more flexible in terms of position. Good pick up though.

I assume it's all because of Henry who is the base of their offense. He needs instant movement and gaps at the LoS, rather than some mobile OT leading the way... once he gets speed Henry is good enough breaking tackles and gaining yards on the second level on his own.

Don't follow.  The pundits on here said that Love had a better arm than Fromm, when they both have the same velocity measured at the combine.  That's all I meant.

 

Losing Love is no great loss, IMO.

I hope we don't  draft james Morgan 

It won’t matter because he’d likely wind up being just a back up QB any way.  Well it would mean one less potential weapon for Rivers next year.  I don’t think Ballard envisioned this year’s draft as the means to obtain the Colts’ next franchise QB.  But maybe he feels he can snag a potential back up from it.

That is what he said in video with mcgahee  before  the draft started. He said he was going to watch tape of buckner  and consider  trading back for more picks in draft

He will probably take a tackle and trade 44 lol. No WR in second.

Odds are if Ballard trades 44, it’s only down further into the 2nd round.  
 

Odds are incredibly small he’d trade completely out of the 2nd round.  A WR in the second is still possible.

We may actually have our choice out of Higgins, Mims, or Pittman.  I can see the Bengals getting Burrow a big high pointing receiver like Higgins to start Round 2.

Folks we have to console ourselves. Ballard had two opportunities to draft Love. With the #13 overall pick and trading the #34 and #44 picks would have gotten Ballard back into the 1st round to take Love. Ballard passed up on both opportunities. 

 

He never saw Love as a franchise QB.

It wouldn’t have even taken that... you are right, he didn’t want him.!

    • Just to recap:  (there are my general board observations, not a report of any particular posters history)   Minimize past discretions by player....."he's gonna straighten out with my team". Take preseason performance against 2nd and 3rd string players, and extrapolate that to 1st string abilities. Scream for increased playing time every time we lose..... or our starting QB struggles. Become incensed when he is put on the practice squad, sighting absolute practice squad pilfering by another team.  Ignore that player was not picked up by another team.  Become incensed when he is not given playing time in what you consider, a "lost" season.  Again, become incensed when he is put on the practice squad, sighting absolute practice squad pilfering by another team.  Again, ignore that player was not picked up by another team.    Sorry, but I am losing the historic order....what was next?    
    • My criteria would be different, IMO to make an all-time Colts team you have to have at least 2 full seasons played or a minimum of 32 games played. 1 game or 1 full season is too low of a sample of size: Here would be my all-time Colts team:   Offense QB - Peyton Manning, barely over Johnny U but I chose PM RB - Eric Dickerson TE - John Mackey WR - Marvin Harrison WR - Raymond Berry Slot WR - put Reggie Wayne here OT - Tarik Glenn OG - Quenton Nelson C - Jeff Saturday OG - Jim Parker OT - Chris Hinton -in bold are 4 players that were Baltimore Colts. SP Teams K - Adam Vinatieri P- Pat McAfee   I have to think about the defense for a while but I will list them in a while.
    • Yep. Should be tougher all around, in all phases.
    • Thanks. I read that. A bit too anecdotal for me. Not being pessimistic, and sounds good, just prefer substance.  Gonna take my weekly Wednesday night look at advanced stats later tonight, and should be able to understand better. I'm just guessing he wasn't targeted, and Wilson was. The thing is regardless, a FS isn't often targeted as they're generally helping and not in single coverage. Even Blackmon's PD/tip was him helping. Which is why Wilson's stats are impressive to me.
