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.

Love it

Ballard may have gotten it backwards.  The trade up looks like he was eager to get Swift of Taylor, but took a WR.  

 

Probably could have gotten Swift at 34 and Claypool at 44.  Swift is the better back, but Taylor is definitely bigger.

This pick makes sense for me for two reasons.

 

1. Mack is not a 3 down back and wont be re-signed next year. He doesn't catch or is not a powerful short yardage back.

 

2. The RB class next year is not supposed to be good.

 

 

 

Travis Etienne, Chubba Hubbard, and Najee Harris would disagree with your second reason.

Honestly, I am not sure how Mack is still on the team.  They will push for Taylor to start

Dude, Mack was 11th in yards last year, and 9th in av/game. Let's stop acting like he's a castaway jag....

Now we need to trade Mack while we're can get something for him. No extension for Mack. Dolphins need a back and Marlin is a Florida guy. 

You need two. Mack isn’t going anywhere. He will finish his contract.

Hubbard and Harris I think are more 3rd round prospects imo. Solid players but Taylor is better than all three. 

 

I think we would have been looking for a bell cow RB next year.

He has about 18 career fumbles...   15 of them lost.   But coaches think they can coach it out of the player. 

He's also got a bunch of carries.  I think he was a three year starter, or heavy contributor.  Wonder what the actual fumble per touch was.

Not saying I completely hate the Taylor pick, but Etienne would have been my number one running back this year ahead of Swift for sure.

 

I would have probably put Chubba in front of Jonathan Taylor too honestly.

I really hope Taylor catches passes.

 

He does.  WI doesn't do it that much, but he's supposed to do it well.

 

He can block.  He can take it to the house.  He can catch.  Now Rivers has the opportunity to audible into any play he wants and isn't limited by who is in the backfield.

I'm not following the cablecast: did Ballard move up after the Texans got Blacklock or before?

Yeah, I'm not sure.  It just looks like he gave up a lot for the three spots, but maybe not.

Looks like a panic move?

Or Ballard just was in love, and though another team was going to grab a RB. 

Just not overly happy as he hasn't been a big part of the passing game. 

Hope he can catch.

Win-now mode is def in full effect.  When you spend your first 2 picks on a perfect-fit WR2 and a franchise RB it's a full commitment.  

 

We may have been able to move down for Pittman, but with Higgins starting the waterfall there was no way to know how that would have gone down.  Taylor was absolutely worth the move-up in that spot.  You could almost hear Doug Marrone do the Homer Simpson "DOH!" when Indy's pick came in.  Instead of Taylor shredding us for the next 5 years, he'll be dishing it out on our behalf.

    • McAfee had Rossini on today talking about how it's gonna be a massacre this week. I'm not so sure about that. Some of these guys yeah are gonna get let go but anyone with a bonus they are gonna also be looking at waiting for June 1 so they can spread the hit out away from this year. It's definitely gonna be a bloodbath but I don't think we will see it all this week. Again way too much draft capital being spent and not enough backloaded contracts for proven talent. It's definitely going to be interesting though. 
    • The Eagles pick 9 spots ahead of us as it is and that will obviously be more if Ballard trades back. What the Eagles do will likely have very little influence on what the Colts do and vice versa.
    • First....  I try not to have 100 percent rules.  I try not to use words like “always” and “never”.    Using absolutes will get you into trouble.    That said, if I am going to draft a WR in the first round I’d like him to have rare or special qualities.   Size AND speed.  Hands AND routes.    I’m fine taking smaller receivers, but I personally prefer them outside the top-50.  Hilton was taken late-3rd.  I think 92nd.  Little receivers can be found later in the draft.     I love both Moore’s.   Don’t think I love either enough to take them at 21.  Now, Waddle is small.  But he has rare speed and quickness.  Super acceleration and separation.   Plus he’s got great return ability to boot.  He’s the full package.  I don’t see him as top-10 player, but I’d take him 11-32 all day long in any draft.    There are exceptions to every rule.  But those should only happen few and far between opportunities.  
    • He's not even the best slot receiver in the class either
