PFF Ranks the Colts Jonathan Taylor as Having the Best Situation Among All Rookie Running Backs


Recommended Posts

I still think its funny that they love him as a player, love his fit here but they are so stubborn on their take of running backs that they would only still give us a B+ in their draft grade.

Maybe the B+ came from the Colts drafting Taylor when they already had a top grade running game? 

There were quit a few fans right here in this forum who blew their lids when Taylor was drafted.

No they said in their grading show that any team who took a RB in like the first 3 rounds the highest grade they would acheive is a B+

That is why there are a lot of fans who don't put a lot of faith in how PFF grades I guess,

people should get over the notion of thinking you dont take running backs high

 

real teams do it every year, 6 in the first two rounds just this year alone

I think they get to hung up on their wins with replacement stat. However the thing is, teams with good running backs usually have a really good back up, so if the starter goes down you can plug in another guy and have good production out of them. If you look at our win loss record with mack as a starter and when he is injured its very surprising how one dimensional we are as soon as we lose him. I don't know if i was all on board with taking a RB that early in the second but in every mock i had, i had taking a RB and they weren't near the caliber Taylor is. I am still shocked he was not hyped up more coming out of college

I think that notion only pertains to RBs in the first round.   Especially in the top half of the first round.  Obviously that view is stressed the higher you go.  Top-10?   Top-5?

 

But if you draft a RB in the second round I don’t think there’s an issue.   You can find good value with a RB drafted in the 2nd or 3rd round and I don’t read any objection, anywhere...

Don’t go to Reddit, and I can’t explain the views of some posters here.  
 

Professional people who judge such things rave about our off-season.   ESPN, NFL.com and PFF all judge our off-season as great.  They all say that Taylor and Pittman and Rivers and Bruckner (among others) landed in the right place — Indy.

 

Has our off-season been perfect?   No.  But it’s been mostly very good.   As a fan, not sure we could ask for much more.

    • We clean up the red zone and third down stuff our offense is looking a lot like it did in 2018 with Luck. Rivers isn’t the play maker that Luck was outside the pocket but the offense seems to be rolling pretty nice.  
    • He was very underrated by people on this board.  Injury prone, but he was a stud all around back.   He was really fun to watch in person.  I think his ease of running didn't "look" as cool as it did him gliding around from the top of the oil can.  I also saw that game late in 2018 at Tenn when he just dominated.
    • Why would you remove a weapon  like that on punts. Hines might get some work in the slot with Paris injury. Nick said today Zach would be moved to the slot but it will be s collective effort.
    • The stats indicate he is playing well too. He threw a couple of INTs...but other than that...he has looked good. I don't think anybody thought we were getting a prime Rivers. His passer rating is trending to what we should expect...and the TD % will regress to his career mean...and I don't expect him to continue throwing bad INTs all year.    The difference between Rivers and JB is night and day.    
    • Andrew Luck=Grigson's wins and that pick was a no brainer.     TY was a value pick too, but other than that, there's not much to write home about.  His use of 1st round picks between Luck and Kelly (because the line was so bad), were borderline criminal.
