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 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.

Go Swift and WR early...and then figure out how to get another pick and grab a T and S/CB.

Who will the bengals take at 33?

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.

Colts trade 34 and 193 to Texans for 40 and 111

 

40 Jeremy Chinn 

44 Matt Peart 

75 Van Jefferson 

 

I feel like you're reaching on all of those picks...

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

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.

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.

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

If we don’t come out of the second with at least Pitman, Claypool, Mims , or Higgins I am going to be mad.

And THAT is Ballard’s worst nightmare!   
 

You keep doing that....

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).

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 have to admit, this was the first time this year that I was disappointed in the guys on this team. They actually looked bored, of all things. If I were a conspiracy theorist, I'd say it looked like they were told that the Titans were given the win by the league in this one, and they didn't have it in them to even make it look like a real game.   Now that's how it looked.   In reality, though, it did look like they, for whatever reasons, couldn't find it in them to be up emotionally for this game. And there's no other way to describe that than extremely disappointing. And as a result, it left me increasingly bored with the game as it went along. So much so that it took me three viewings to complete it. I actually fell asleep on two different occasions trying to finish it.   BLECH!!!
    • Agreed doesn’t make it any less disrespectful.  
    • Don’t like it, but they backed it up.
    • I think Manning and Condon engineered Manning's way out of Indy...and there's a decent chance Irsay was involved. That team was really bad...and Manning wasn't going to spend his last few years on a team with an aging crappy roster with little hope of getting back to the Super Bowl. I think Manning's legacy was incredibly important to him...and he felt he had unfinished business.   Manning's last contract was actually signed in the summer leading up to the 2011 season...less than 7 weeks before he would have the neck fusion. They were in a lockout that offseason...and it wasn't resolved until 7/25...so Manning didn't sign his deal until 7/31.    But at that point, he had had failed TWO surgeries (one in February and one in May I believe)...and still couldn't throw the football 5 yards. There is a fantastic WaPo article out there that chronicles Manning's neck injury and recovery. Manning knew he couldn't throw...and that it wasn't getting better...and because of this and him having access to the best medical care...I think Manning also knew what he would have to do...in regards to the fusion surgery and other treatments (like the stem cell treatment he got in Europe).   But the interesting part is that Irsay, who knew Manning better than just about anybody (and I am sure knew about the surgeries and maybe even Manning's current status), didn't bother to have even a basic physical before making Manning "the highest-paid QB in the NFL"...as he insisted on doing. I know QBs are treated differently...but that what type of business owner makes that type of investment without due diligence (or how does his inner circle of advisors let him). It would have been akin to Ballard giving Luck a big extension in the summer of 2017 when Luck looked like he weighed 170 lbs.   Either Irsay was aware of it all and was involved in Manning's exit...or he took Peyton at his word on his health and was ultimately duped.   But considering they both agreed to include a massive $27M option bonus due the following spring...essentially a poison pill that would end the contract if there even any question about Manning's health...I think it's pretty clear they both knew there was considerable risk due to Manning's neck. But the rub is that it was actually Manning (and Condon) who insisted on the roster option...and I think they did it because they knew what was coming and knew the Colts wouldn't/couldn't pick it up. And they even made the option decision due 5 days BEFORE the start of the league year...so that the Colts would have to pick it up to even trade him.   Basically...Manning would be a FA and would get to choose his next team to cement his legacy...and the Colts would rebuild...which is what Irsay wanted. And most of the fanbase would accept and understand why he left. It was pretty ingenious actually.       
    • I want us to face them again in the playoffs and beat them, just like we did in '18 with the Texans.
