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.

I was kind of thinking Swift & Claypool or possibly even Pittman later but then I read some guys write up on receivers and he had some numbers (percentage of the team’s passing offense, immediate production while young  & then growth over their playing years) & he had Pittman & many others like Aiyuk rated much higher than a guy like Claypool, who it took longer to hit those metrics.

I really liked Pittman playing early, or more ready now at pure X. I think he has lower long term upside deep. But I'm very happy to have him regardless. He should be a boss out of the gate. He's going to be good on the sideline opposite Z. He could be deadly on back shoulder and comebacks. The reason I like Claypool is because of the speed. I think he'll potentially be better long term deep. Both are good at 50/50, but Claypool is likely going to get better separation. 

 

I love Aiyuk too. But he's a different type of receiver. He'd be simply awesome as a traditional slot IMO. If their plan is to move PC outside, I would have loved Aiyuk. I watch the Crazy Herms a lot last year, and he was one of my favs.

 

But yes, I'd rather have Swift + Claypool than Pittman + Taylor.

And then maybe he only hit them once as compared to guys with consistent production like Pittman, Lamb, & Jeudy.  So he was saying Claypool had more bust potential & like you said Pittman more immediate of an impact.  You think Claypool will be better long term?  They said he was a tremendous hooper too coming out of high school.  With his speed...  He could be something truly special. 

Claypool is going to be a good X regardless IMO. Might be a tad under Pittman if he doesn't develop, but I think he'll develop. He's still somewhat new to football. He's got untapped potential IMO. I'm a ND homer, so take it with a grain of salt.

what picks you guys thinking day 3?

I think Collin Johnson out of Texas could be there as another big target for Rivers.  That would be the WR double up I wanted of Pittman & Claypool or Mims in Rd 2.

I think Ballard did well.  3 good players.  I didnt like drafting a RB.  Would have preferred a n O-lineman, TE or D with that pick.

I gotta admit the Blackmon pick was a bit of a head-scratcher for me, especially with both Zuniga and Gallimore still sitting there at #75, and Elliott even at #85--IMO the Colts' DL needs even more of a talent infusion than just Buckner and Day.

 

Guess I'll have to hope now that Houston can, at his age, have another really good season and/or that Banogu really blossoms in 2020. And that Day can contribute significantly in addition to Buckner.

 

And also hope that maybe someone like Wonnum or Robinson, or Lawrence or Fotu, will still be there at either #122 or #149.

What happened to Trautman? So many TEs drafted ahead of him

He's a small school TE, and some top graded TEs are still not taken yet. Belichick took two TEs, none of them are graded in top 5 by experts like Daniel Jeremiah but both have some potential.

 

This draft has so much talent that each team has completely different set of boards and they pick the best player they like for their fit and upside. I think it's not on the players if they're not taken earlier.

I kinda agree that if they planned on taking a RB early, I would have taken Swift at 34, and Claypool later. Hindsight though... 

 

A third year is far out to predict. Hope you are right. Mack was set back in terms of catching with Brissett. Everyone was. 

 

And I really don't know if 3 down will make that much difference if they truly want to get Hines on the field more. He did great in 2018, because we were more balanced. I think we'll see more Hines this year, so that'll cut into 3rd down snaps. Maybe more. Hines needs the ball. 

NVM,

So Steelers have bad backup QB and a ageing Big Ben and still pass on Eason. That kid has so much talent. 

You might believe that regarding Eason, however no TEAMS do. I'm not sure why some fans here can't see the writing. These QB's... Eason, Fromm, Gordon, Morgan, etc.. They are camp arm projects and I for one am glad " To This Point" the Colts haven't wasted a pick on one of these guys. If the Patriots and Steelers and Saints and Lions as an example who could seriously use a QB as they have aging one already or uncertainty at the position, have not pulled the trigger on one of these "Talented" guys as you call it, then that should spell it out for you. They are not what you believe them to be. From the Colts perspective, NO QB this year.

Albert Okwuegbunam, TE, Missouri

 

Has he been drafted? He was 39th on Gil Brandt's top 150 players. 

 

Brandt had the Colts' selection at running back as the #24th best player and #1 RB on his board.

RANK

24

Jonathan Taylor, RB

School: Wisconsin | Year: Junior
Measurables: 5-foot-10 1/4, 226 pounds, 4.39 40, 7.01 three-cone, 4.24 short shuttle, 17 lifts.

In 41 games (40 starts), Taylor logged 926 carries for 6,174 yards (6.7 per carry). He also posted 3.93 yards after contact per carry in 2019 and 219 career missed tackles, and he's learning to catch better. The big knock on him is the relatively high fumbled total (19 in 926 carries). He will be OK, he just has to correct that fumbling issue. Taylor never missed a game with injury.

Eason has a ton of talent but clearly the work ethic questions must of been true. He must of not been good on intreviews either. Which was the rumor a couple months ago. He has all the talent in the world but clearly doesn’t have what it takes above the shoulders. You can’t watch videos of him and say he has no talent. It’s what is above the shoulders.

That and he absolutely crumbles when pressured. That's not necessarily something you can coach out of someone easily.

Ugh, I've been watching ABC so I wouldn't have to listen to Mel Kiper, but now ABC is using the same crew as ESPN and NFLN instead of the College Gameday crew they've been using the last two days...

 

:wall:

It'll be 80% Trey Wingo.  You'll be ok.

camp arms is a little harsh.

SOME of these guys get pushed down and surprise. Two I can think of without thinking --- Russell Wilson gets picked in the third; Kirk Cousins, i think, was drafted in the fourth.

guys get pushed down for all kinds of reasons.

we'll see how they turn out. still like eason and fromm. 

and gordon

    • Ballard has said multiple times that he wants to focus on the trenches first and foremost.  LT is probably the biggest key to the trenches and with our line it is the only older spot we are needing.  DE is a need as well and something he has drafted or at least added FA's almost every year.  LT is not though so I assume this will be the 1st round draft pick for us this year unless some key guy falls down to us.  I am hopeful that we end up with either Darrisaw, Eichenburg, or Leatherwood.  Leatherwood has been a stud over multiple years for Alabama who runs a pro style offense and could fit in for us very quick IMO.  Eichenberg also has good experience in running a pro style as well.  Radunz looks good but the competition level scares me away from a first round pick.
    • Like @NewColtsFan said "for what it's worth"   My response to those power rankings is "Which bowl game does it mean we'll get?"    
    • Ballard still trying to find his next Peanut Tillman (Bears) at CB.     Quincy Wilson was strike one, Ya-Sin is strike two...    Ya-Sin is strike two
    • Not directed at either above comment just a general thought about this...   Do you think Chris Berman, Tony Gonzalez, Jim Nanz, etc watch all 16 NFL games each week or do you think they watch 2 or 3 and someone (an intern) watches the games and provides them summary notes? I wonder if a personality, like Phil Simms, actually does know more about the Colts than a regular fan. Guys like Nate Burelson make me think they watch all or at least most of the games but others I'm not so sure.   Thoughts?  
    • Not really.   The overall talent level right now with Rivers and our IR'd skill players is about the overall same level as when he had a more talented QB, less talent on defense, and Donald Thomas and Gosder Cherilous on IR back then.   The main difference is that back then, we were maxed out at getting over the hump because we spent to the maximum Cap number just to get into the playoffs (but didn't mortgage the future), whereas now we still have room to maintain our talent level while adding more.   So we will resign the good players, and add more rookies who can (hopefully) play.  And then we'll be in position to win just like every other sports league team that wins and is pressed against the cap...they get rookies who are in their 2nd 3rd or 4th years to vastly contribute more to the team than the level of salary they are being compensated at in their rookie contracts.   Its either done that way (like SEA did when they got those young drafted defensive players and Wilson pre-big contract) or you simply load up on FAs to win now and mortgage the future (which doesn't seem to work out well in the NFL)
