Wow what just happened. This guy is a project but getting him in the 4th is a steal. 

 

Ballard said last night when’ve asked about a WB we just aren’t there yet. Lol he new this was going to happen. 

Not so sure about that.  It took a while for him to get the pick in.  Could have been fielding calls or maybe he was talking it over with his guys if they really wanted him.

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.

Chad Kelly was fun to watch in camp, but I think it’s a no brainer to have Eason take his place. Young guy with talent, and Chad Kelly has already screwed up his chance at becoming a every week starter IMO.

Colts should be a beast in the preseason.  Every QB we put out there should be able to move the football.  lol

I think I like Morgan better...but both are massive projects...so expectations should be tempered anyways. Having a cheap backup QB is a good thing though.

Eason is a much better player and much better prospect. No contest really, IMO. The worries with Eason it seems are mainly about attitude/work ethic....

We took Eason for one reason, so Ballard could make people angry and complain :funny:.

 

Actually the kid has a great strong arm and is tall. I am ok with it. Jacoby will be gone now IMO.

We will see about Jacoby.  I still think he is kept as the reliable back up behind Rivers.  Remember the Colts are going all in this season.  If anything could be bad for Kelly.  If Jacoby leaves, I think it will be next season pending how things shake out at QB.  Good problem to have.

How did Kelly screw up? Since he was with the Colts or his issues before?

I can't see us keeping 3 active QB's on the roster, can you?

Yeah, I like Kelly much better than Eason, which is why I’m a little upset with this pick...

I think we almost certainly keep three now...

His myriad of issues before. I don’t think he’s done anything wrong since being a Colt. 
But that’s business. He’s a proven knucklehead.

The Colts took the QB I wanted if we took one.  It was him or Hurts for me.  I never was sold on Love.  So I'm good yall.  lol  Seriously...hopefully it all works out and those that are apprehensive will come to appreciate Ballard's (and my) genius.  lol

Going to be funny when Chad Kelly out plays him throughout preseason and camp (assuming they are not cancelled).

This won't be surprising. Player with 3+ years of NFL coaching and experience in the league should be expected to be better than a non-premier rookie QB taken in the 4th round.

 

This pick is NOT about this year. This is about taking a shot on a talent with high end arm talent and see if he's coachable and if he has the mental processing and drive to improve and succeed in the league in the future.

For me at least he is not a face of  the franchise kind of guy esp. here in Indiana

Well, for good or for bad, this will be looked back on as a consequential pick for CB.  This is his first QB pick.  This will be remembered.

 

What does he want?  "Chunk plays" and "measurables".  This guy is gonna launch it to Parris Campbell, running free beyond the defense.  At least, that's the vision.

This situation makes me wonder what Colts staff thinks about/sees in Kelly. They saw him every day but then make this move.

Will probably keep 2 with one on practice squad.  It's going to be interesting to see how it shakes out.  Eason has to earn his place...a 4th round pick has no guarantees.  That's understood.

Ballard has killed this draft. If Eason works hard on his pocket awareness he is going to be great. He is a tough kid in the pocket and will throw dimes after being hit. Just needs to learn to handle pressure better.  He has to prove he is coachable and doesn’t know it all.

Does this count as "forcing" it as Ballard said, multiple time, we would not do?

I don't think so.  Forcing it would have been picking Eason in the 2nd round.  He's being picked in the 4th.  Incredible value for the pick, with less risk.

How is that "forcing" it? Getting a high end arm talent QB with high end pedigree in the 4th round? FOURTH round? This is a good flyer to take. Much worse QBs go in the 4th round every year.

Not if they had a 2nd round grade...which I predict will be leaked later today. 
 

But everyone likes to think Ballard won’t do this or that...and then he does. I love how his approach has evolved.

going to be a fun argument over who gets cut between Chad and Jacoby

 

i think its Jacboy he makes way too much, Chads contract is trivial

 

i dont think chads past is relevant now, he would not still be here if that was a problem

Jacoby might get traded by the end of the draft...

Confirmed teams were worried about character and work ethic. Rivers is the perfect mentor. He will either learn to be a pro or will be a backup.

 

 

Rivers is definitely a Pro's pro. He can teach Eason a lot. One thing I like about Eason is his dad played in the NFL as well.

That's fair, I just do not like him. Feels like we are collecting mediocre QBs (after Rivers).

If PR was 30 that would be perfect but he is 38 and I would prefer his backup be someone with actual NFL experience before a rookie or a Journeyman Vet on his second team with no significant NFL experience

I can’t see Eason or JB being on the practice squad. I think they either trade JB or keep all of them.

 

JB is ineligible for the practice squad. Eason would be impossible to keep on the practice squad.

Right...I just liked Morgan better. Eason has tons of talent.
