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.

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.

    • I really think if Rivers had an off-season with this offense, he would have put up even better numbers. It was obvious the last half of the season things started to change with his throws and TY getting involved with him. I’m not against him coming back for one more season. 
    • I think the biggest part of what Ballard is doing right now is (1) calling teams to ask what they would want from us for their quarterback.    Stafford,  Ryan,  Darnold...       And then,  (2)  further evaluations on the QB class.   Will there be someone they like at 21?   And I know what CB said at his year end briefing.   I don't expect him to be fully candid about such a thing in that setting.    Or might there be someone they'd take in the 2nd or 3rd round?        In other words,  what are the other options if (A) Rivers retires,  or (B) could someone else be a better option than Rivers and we might just say "sorry, we're going in another direction."      I would think the evaluation of Rivers 2020 season would already be pretty close to done.     
    • Did you watch Ballard’s end of year presser? He wouldn’t even say that he thought Eason would be the backup for sure, never mind end up being the starter. He made it sound like he was more committed to the idea of Jacoby Brissett being the starter/backup than Eason.   Ballard said some nice things about him, but basically said they haven’t really had a chance to see enough from him at all at this point. This is a big off season and upcoming training camp/preseason for him.   Could he be a franchise QB? Maybe. He’ll have to prove it to us though. 
    • Rivers played well for us this season, I don't think that's really up for debate. Definitely a lot better than JB.
    • I know we havent seen him in NFL game action, but his throwing traits cant be taught. Nice accuracy and consistently hits guys in stride. If he has learned to read defenses better and not stare down targets, could he be the franchise QB? I am intrigued and hope we can see some serious Eason play come training camp and pre games. It sucks having a guy with great arm talent and yet havent seen him in action yet
