I can see us taking one of the following:

 

wide receiver: Pittman Jr. Mims or Higgins 

 

tackle:  Jones, Barch or Cleveland 

 

I would be happy with any of these guys.

 

I would be even happier with one from each group. Jones and Pittman is my preference.

I don't care if it's at 34 or 44, as long as we get Pittman, I'll be happy.

Same here brother. My favorite player in the draft. He’s going to be really good. Com’on Ballard lets just agree one time.

Have no idea what Ballard  with do, but expect a trade back and more players you covet to disappear

That’s what I’m afraid of too. More developmental players once again.

Hopefully  swift or diggs at 34

I would prefer Jones and Pittman, also. Don’t really understand the posts wanting defensive backs.  The need for wide receiver and an offensive lineman are more pressing, in my opinion.  
 

Swift?  We have no need for a running back.  And I’d never draft one that early.

Hmm, I really wonder if Ballard will take Xavier Mckinney and then trade away Malik Hooker.

   

  I wouldn't be too happy with that considering you're literally just making a hole for the team and then immediately filling it when you didn't need to in the first place. Still possible

Wow.  There are several players available at positions of need for the Colts tomorrow.  

 

There's a load of DBs, including the entire group of safeties.  Zero G and all but one Center are available.  Josh Jones is one of many starter-caliber tackles still on the market.

 

I'm guessing Ballard will trade down from 34 and still get his guy, whomever that may be.

Rumor mill here in Ohio is Bengals will take OL Ezra Cleveland with the 33rd.

That still leaves Jones,  He could still be there at 44 since a lot of teams in the range in between took a OT.

MAJOR facts. Praying it’s different this time around. Don’t know.... I know I’ll be even tempered this time around tonight. Can’t afford to have my heart ripped out on back to back days haha

Jeremy Chinn has to be in the cards or at least one of those safeties.

 

Trevon Diggs is also the perfect scheme fit as well. 
 

And of course WR. Mims and Pittman both available 


I would LOVE Trevon Diggs here in the 2nd.

Fulton, CB LSU wouldn't be bad, neither would Delpit, S for LSU. Blacklock, DT from TCU is the best available. Jonathan Taylor, Cam Achers, Swift or Dobbins are all available, if one falls to #44 I'd really think about them as well.

At least he’d learn where he should have drafted Hooker at instead of 15... McKinney was projected similar to what Hooker was in 2017.

Not gonna overthink this one - two players I love in the 2nd.  Mims and Chinn.  Ecstatic that Mims is still there.  No WR nailed the pre-draft process more than Mims, with a dominant Senior Bowl and combine.  And we all know how Ballard loves SB standouts.  He’s big, fast, athletic, and finds the football. Chinn, like the Maniac, was a small school guy who went to the SB and proved he belonged.  True, I might not be thinking Safety without the rumors about Hooker from the last few days, but I’ve been itching for a reason to take Chinn “too high”.  And Ballard would have to balk at paying up for Hooker’s top-notch ball-hawking when our system doesn’t really utilize it to the fullest.  Plus, you know...injuries.

Im sticking with my Tee Higgins prediction.  He does much of the same stuff Ballard was looking for out of Devin Funchess.  Same big body style Rivers is used to.  Higgins scores a lot in the red zone and has played all 3 positions.

Kmet seems like the logical fit for the Bengals considering Eiffert is gone and they have no TE worth anything

Yea I'm looking at the qbs left and not convinced  Ballard  will draft one today. I think he trades back from 34 and our first pick may be 44

I agree with a couple of DE there we could get a couple of nice picks. That being said I wouldn’t be upset at all if Ballard simply goes BPA and then uses 44 as trade bait.

My prediction is we get our highest ranked WR at 34 and then we make a small trade back from 44 to like... 49 or 51 and then pick an traitsy EDGE. 

Yea we know Ballard  is going  to trade back, but will it be 34 or 44 or both

  As much as I like Swift and Dobbins, to me, RB is not their biggest need.
   Given Rivers’ penchant for throwing 50/50 balls to Mike Evans, they need another playmaker at WR with some size and speed.

     That being said, I trust the Colts have done their homework and will do the right thing, (including trading down, if the price is right and they feel they can get what they need and get extra picks).

With all the talent left on the board, I hope we stick with our two second round slots, because we can fill needs with BPA for both, so I see no need for trading down to add picks, unless someone blows us away with an offer.

We need to stick with both. Maybe we can mess with the 3rd round to get more picks.

 

I don’t think we will take any QB with these three picks today.  We have a few needs elsewhere. We need to come out of the second with a WR and OT.

    • Ballard didn't say it was definite.   He didn't rule it out.   He just said as of this minute.    I think he's hoping to find out in April and May.      He still might end up deciding Eason is OK as the back-up.   I was only trying to impress upon those in the "Throw Jacob Eason in and see what we have" crowd that Ballard has crushed that dream for 2021.    But I wouldn't rule out 2022....  at least not yet.  
    • TY - 2Y/22M - he can still play but he’s not Tyreek Hill taking the top of defenses anymore, and with his disappearing act at the beginning of the year I’m afraid to sign him any longer or with too much guaranteed. Partly for sentimental reasons I want him to stay, but I do think he’s still got some juice.    Mack - 1Y/1M - Likable player but due to his position and injury, no way can I justify giving him much more than vet minimum.    Houston - 1Y/8M - Fell off a lot this year compared to his first year. Still our best edge player, basically by default and I’d be hoping we can get a more 2019 performance out of him at arguably our weakest position on the team.    Autry - Walk. He will price himself out with an inflated sense of value because he’s gotten decent sack numbers, but he is the definition of JAG and I’d only keep him if he agreed to a minimum contract.    Rhodes - 1Y/6M - He was a stud this year. If we could guarantee that he won’t revert back to his last two years in Minnesota I would be willing to go longer and higher. With how much he fell off after getting paid the first time, I’m not giving him a long term deal.    Walker - 1Y/2M - He was playing a very small percentage of downs at the end of the year so I’m keeping him less based on ability and more based on leadership and football savvy.    Hooker - Walk. Both sides need to just move on. I’d keep him at minimum too but I think both sides want a fresh start. Also a little miscast in the current defense so no reason to force a square peg into a round hole.    Brissett - 1Y/5M - Too big of a fan of Brissett as a man to want to see him leave. I don’t want him starting but he’s a very solid backup and compared to the 20M we gave him last year, I can live with his salary being at 1/4 of that this year.    Pascal and MAC both tendered at 2.24M. I want to bring in Kenny Golladay or Allen Robinson and Pascal is JAG so he’s not falling into my future plans much. I’m a big fan of MAC and I wouldn’t mind seeing him play the Jack Doyle role. He’s a better blocker, has better hands, and is more explosive.    I may be lowballing some guys but I’d hate to fall into the trap of overvaluing our guys and keeping them just because you want to keep your own. Unfortunately, I think the five most important positions on the team also coincide with our five weakest positions on the team; QB, WR, CB, DE, and LT. Fortunately we’ve got a good cap situation and this is the perfect year to be needing a QB. 
    • If we let Walker Walk, (and I think it’s likely) it’s not because we want an upgrade.   It’s because we simply don’t play him enough.   I think East Street has the numbers in snaps, but I think Walker is roughly playing 25-30 percent of the snaps.   That’s it.    We can't pay him enough for that.   Some other team will PLAY him more so they will PAY him more.    When Walker is off the field, we are either playing a 4-2-5 or a 4-1-6.   Leonard plays basically 100 percent of the snaps and I think Oke is about 55-60 percent.     There is a method to our madness.  
    • I'm surprised some folks want to resign Walker. Imo we definitely need an upgrade.... I'd let him walk.
    • Colts have won one playoff game in 6 seasons. Some more losing seasons and this team is no longer even in the top half of NFL franchises. They would be mostly irrelevant. I can’t imagine Irsay going for that.   Ballard is definitely safe...but this is year 5 and I am assuming there is a bit more urgency than just waiting for the perfect opportunity to come along.
