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.

Ugh...a project BSU OL player. Liked so many players better. 

 

 

I much would have rather had Shane Lemieux that went right after Pinter.

Seems like a waste of an early 5th round pick for an UDFA type. There are so many players from actual NFL-producing programs out there. This dude is not strong, has shorter arms and is still learning how to play OL. Don’t get it...but I will root for a BSU kid any day.

Maybe CB valued speed.

He's more athletic across the board, not just speed. Seems more explosive too. Seems like a pick by a team that trusts its OL coaching to build up technique into an athletic player.

Vikes trade another pick. This time to the Bears who pick Trevis Gipson.

Are you trading back or trading out? Didn't you guys have like 13 picks today? What are you going to do with all of them?

For sure. BSU has not produced a legit NFL player since Maynard...and the Colts have now drafted the last two.

 

Apparently teams like his upside. So we will see.

Ballard’s drafts are like Polian drafts, plenty of “cute” and “upside” picks.

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 

you are totally biased against kelly.  jacoby's experience has gotten us nothing but losing records

He’s a TE convert...much like Haeg...whom best case scenario he can replace. Just a meh pick IMO.

Speed and explosion.  Attributes you'd want in a good pulling guard.

Lmao proven knucklehead? He’s human. I bet everyone on this forum has made mistakes before. I’ve made multiple mistakes and I was forgiven and I’m still doing well. Why should people still be bashing him for what he did years ago? He was young and hasn’t done anything since. Tired of people bashing the dude for making a mistake. WE ALL MAKE MISTAKES. Get over it and quit bring his past up. It’s one thing to bring it up if it just happened, but not if it was years ago.


I’m sorry you think I’m bashing him, but I’m not. I know people change and people make mistakes - but mistakes DO have consequences. I’m not hitching my million dollar trailer to a horse with a record of going off the tracks. Just not the smart business thing to do, and that’s why Ballard and Reich make the big bucks.
 

Chad Kelly has done really well in his current role when a lot of teams wouldn’t even give him that.

    • Sure.  He can backup Eason on the practice squad 
    • There is nothing more vital than QBs and receiving talent.
    • Yeah, that's what I got from his press-conference too. That's what I got from Ballard's presser earlier this month too - he will prefer addressing QB with a vet.    Yep. Ballard said something similar to that effect too - they think they are close. I think they are somewhat close, but I do think several positions(most important ones) need addressing and we will need injury luck. I don't think we are Matt Stafford away. I think we are Matt Stafford, good LT, good WR, good DE and good CB away... and that's assuming good health. In essence, my position right now is - if you are getting Stafford, you better be ready to address all those other positions or you are wasting your resources on a team that will ultimately come short.    That's the thing. I think there is a good option. Not ideal, but good. It's trading up in the draft for one of the top 4 prospects. I think all of them are high level prospects that can be franchise QBs. This is a good draft. This is the type of draft you trade up in for the guy you love. Here comes the less than ideal part - this would mean we probably take a slight step back next year. But again... we have SO MANY high value positions unaddressed that we might take a step back either way unless we are ready to go all in with Stafford. Right at this moment we are a worse team than last year. Our franchise LT just retired. Our QB just retired. We have TY, Houston, Autry, Rhodes, Walker, Carrie, Muhammad, Burton, Alie Cox ... to re-sign. So... our best WR, both our starting DEs, both our starting outside corners(by the end Carrie was getting more snaps than Rock), 2 of 3 TEs, our starting MIKE, our backup DE...   In essence we have 70M cap to address: QB, LT, 2xDE, 2xCB, MIKE, 1 or 2 WRs, possibly TE... I'm not sure we will be able to.    Holy moly, the more I look at our situation the more I don't like where we are and the more I think Stafford won't be enough to even get us to this year's level. I don't know... I have to rethink things... I might do another mock off-season post Senior Bowl to put my thoughts on paper and see how it shakes up if we have to trade up multiple high level picks for Stafford. 
    • Judging by what Irsay had to say at his year ender,  it doesn't look like that Ballard will wait to the draft to pull the trigger, unless he strikes out in a trade for every veteran we've talked about.   From Stafford, to Rodgers, to Ryan,  to Carr,  to Garropolo and so on....   Irsay was saying he, Ballard and Frank all think they're close.  (his words)  So, the quickest and most direct path to future success is a trade for a veteran (my words, but his implication)    Irsay didn't rule out a draft pick in April.     I suspect you're old enough to understand the concept I'm about to address.   I think one of the most interesting concepts adults deal with in all walks of life is that sometimes,  there are no good options.   There are only poor options or bad options.  And the job is to try and figure out which option is the least bad.   I'm not just talking sports,  but all things in life.   Sometimes there just are no good options.   And, I think the Colts are pretty close to being there.   But, you find the best choice there is and chalk it up to the price of doing business in the NFL.     What else can we do?   Sorry if this got preachy....    didn't mean for it to.
