Recommended Posts

If Campbell can stay healthy and develop Hilton, Campbell, Pittman, and Pascal could be deadly

Surprised they didn’t trade back, but I like the pick. 

Maybe they will use the other pick in this round to trade down a few spots.

Great pick especially if more top WRs go soon which very well could happen. I felt Higgins, Pittman, and Mims were the last of the top tier WRs available.

With Higgins going 33, there were only 2 top tier WRs left in Mims and Pittman in my opinion, so they couldn't risk both of them being gone by 44 overall.

I'm afraid simply because the fanbase sounds pretty happy..

 

Thought we'd be 3 pages deep into 'he sucks'...:thmup:

Hey Guys, 

 

If you remember I'm from France, 

Currently watching the draft on a cruddy stream as I'm confined in the countryside. It is almost 2am here! 

 

Quick question, I see all of you being thrilled about the pick, but I never heard about Pittman. 

We heard in the community of French football fans about Shenault or Mims (outside of the already picked ones). 

What make you feel that he is better than Shenault or Mims. 

And according to the fact that every mock draft I've seen Shenault or Mims were higher ranked prospect, wouldn't have he been available at 44? 

Thanks!

I'm very OK with the pick. I hope he can stay healthy. Colts' receivers seem to have that virus. At least Pittman is a large WR, but so was Funchess and the fractured clavicle.

Pittman has #1 WR ability if he balls out I wouldn't be too upset if we didn't bring Hilton back in 21

IMO if Campbell isn't slot WR #1 by 2021 then something didn't work out as planned

Great pick.  I'm hoping for Dobbins or Taylor now.  Swift went right after Pittman.  Trust in Ballard.

I like it.  We got the big WR we've been looking for.  He is productive, excellent hands, catches the ball in traffic. 

 

I was watching a lot of you tube highlights of possible draftees for us.  Besides what has already been said.  I seen him make plays on special teams.  Blocked a couple punts, made a good tackle causing a fumble, I think it was on kickoff coverage for USC.

 

There was report yesterday how the trend of picks after Cincy become Hall of Fame players.  Probably a coincidence but I did not want us to trade this pick aware because of the Karma with this pick. 

 

Now on to pick 44 for another quality pick.

Fastest 40m sprint ever--Chris Ballard handing in this pick.  You would have to think that the Colts had absolutely no intention of trading the pick

I love Pittman. He was a late study for me. Initially I had him pegged as a 3d rounder but the more I watched him the more I liked him and he ended up as my 6th best receiver in the draft(late first value). I absolutely loved his tape. He has some of the best hands in the draft, for a big receiver he has some of the best feet in the draft too. Great catch radius, great contested catch receiver... but also has some technical refinement when it comes to the nuances of route running, stacking his defender, he looks like a very smart player too - finds open space in zones, when play is broken he gets back to his QB and presents his frame to the QB. He has some of the best feet in the draft too. Just watch his feet on tape... He had some of the best 3cone test at the combine. Unlike some other big frame receivers, Pittman actually seem to have some after the catch ability, he's very competitive fighting for extra yards and can make defenders miss. Althought he's not a burner, if left uninterrupted he has the speed to outrun defenders and take it to house.

Campbell seems to be almost forgotten.  To me we drafted 2 WRs for next year.  With Rivers behind our online, this could easily be a top 5 offense.

Also he was top WR on Wonderlic, scored 29 which is extremely high. So he’s intelligent too.

TY and Pittman on the outside. Campbell in the slot. Doyle getting in on the action.
 

JT running wild.

 

Offense is going to be insane!

Yeah I'm pretty pumped, Ballard ended up getting a premier defensive player with this first pick involving the trade for Buckner.  Then managed to pick up two elite offensive talents in the 2nd, that in a lesser draft probably would've went in the first round.

Pittman is an excellent pick.  Brings us the big catch radius that we haven't had since Reggie.  Pittman can also win the jump balls, but he's not a plodding physical receiver, he has speed.  So he can get down field 30 yards and win the catches in chunk plays, not just plodding possession plays.  

 

Fills a huge hole that we've had for 5 years, IMO.  Great pick.

Mims went a lot later than I expected.

All this happening behind arguably the best offensive line in the league :thmup:

I'm legit excited for this season.  Some premiere D players and a seemingly explosive offense that will go off either this year or the next.  Can't wait.  Just hope we actually HAVE football this year.

Pittman told the press he wore a blue shirt because he was pretty sure the colts would select him.   Very cool

His Wonderlic score is very nice.  He’s older, & mature.  Seems like the kind of player Ballard likes.  I think Rivers will look to him early.  He’s no project.  He’s coming in pro ready.  Also, can see Pittman as a guy that TY can pass the WR leadership reigns to like Reggie did with him.

Just as long as we have a good player on the other side.

Ballard just mentioned how he can win at all three levels. After watching his highlights I agree. Reminds me of Michael Thomas.

Yep. He will be ready to go day 1.  We will need a speedy guy to replace ty. Maybe that ends up being Paris.

    • He is a whole different order of threat than Mack.  I'll be very surprised if teams aren't focusing him by week 4 or so.  And if it wasn't for Mack I'd say he's a real good bet for ROY.  Still might be even with Mack sharing carries.
    • Sub par reading comprehension on my part.
    • 100% agree here. It's probably the right thing to do honestly to keep 6 WRs. We have lots of potential, but no guarantees besides Hilton at this point. However, I love Pittman, Pascal and Campbell as well. Patmon and Dulin can still make the practice squad, so they might not make the 53 because of that. Fountain is borderline, I think it depends on if he is fully recovered from his injury and can outperform 2 of the other 3 in Patmon, Dulin, and Marcus Johnson. Marcus showed some potential as well, he's the longshot IMO, but a big training camp could have him make the roster as the no6 receiver.   I don't think Patmon will stay on the practice squad for very long with his size and potential, so I'd keep him, don't know between the other 3 yet, I'd determine that through training camp competition. In any case, our WR potential looks fantastic, and with Rivers at QB, I believe we'll have 2 guys break out this year at WR.
    • If it's going to happen to anyone this year, it'll be us. Mack and Taylor will both be used heavily in the offense, Reich seems committed to the run, great O-Line. The recipe is there for something like that to happen. Not only that, we should be ahead in the majority of our games, so I can see us running the ball a lot in the 2nd half to waste time off the clock.    Obvious it's not guaranteed to happen, but I think if the NFL plays a full 16 games the result will be very close.
    • Great stuff. Sounds like Paris is off to a great start. Kevin Bowen said he is supposed to be at practice Monday. I think they will be in full pads.
