NFL draft experts: Oregon Ducks OL Penei Sewell ‘becoming a legend overnight'    To no one’s surprise Oregon Ducks left tackle and reigning Outland Trophy winner Penei Sewell ...  

Renner: “He’s just ridiculous. He’s just utterly different than any other guy - even compared to last year’s tackle class. Like, you watch Jedrick Wills, freak. Andrew Thomas, a freak. Penei Sewell is athleticism, plus explosiveness, plus strength, plus size. Like, all of it, and then technique. ... He is as good as it gets at the tackle position that I’ve seen in college.”

Gayle: “Oh man.”

Renner: “He’s a monster. Straight up, built different.”

PFF graded Sewell as college football’s No. 3 overall player during the 2019 season,  draft him next  year

From what I've seen I agree with Renner's assessment. Sewell is the best college tackle prospect I've watched. I think drafting him would mean one of two things - either the Colts suffered multiple horrible injuries or Sewell suffered a horrible injury. He can sit out this season and be drafted top 5 easily. In short - I don't think we will be drafting anywhere high enough to be able to draft him. He's like the Quenton Nelson of tackles... except... we know it the year before he's eligible for the draft.

Even with OL improvements through draft and FA, would you take Sewell, arguably the best LT prospect in a decade or more? It’s probly to early but at this point I’d vote yes because he might be the most talented player in the draft next year.

All 32 teams would take him, no matter what.   He’s that special.   The issue is who realistically has a chance to?

 

Pennel is clearly a top 5 talent, most likely see him as a top 3 kid...   and in some years he’d be a candidate for the first pick in the draft.   Perhaps only Lawrence and Field will go ahead of Pennel in ‘20.  To trade up to get him would cost a fortune. 
 

The Colts will likely be picking in the 20’s...    a trade up for Pennel is highly not likely to happen.

If I were any team that doesn't need a QB, I'd draft him. There is no place high enough to draft a prospect like Sewell.

we don,t need qb . at lest 2 years

Oh yes we do. We needed one this year too. We very likely don't have our long-term solution at QB on the roster so until we get that player, this is priority no. 1 for me.

Whenever he's gone, OT is nowhere near the priority that long-term QB should be. If I could get Fields or Lawrence or Sewell... I'm taking the QBs. Too bad we won't have the chance to make such a choice. So it's kind of a moot point.

Ok...   look at your own post again.   Several points.   Ballard has never traded up in the first round.   In fact he said that while he’d never say never, he said he’s not likely to trade up in the first because it’s WAY too expensive. 
 

Second...   in the four drafts he’s done with the Colts, on the handful of times he’s traded up its only like 2-4 spots.   That’s it.   One exception....   we traded two low 4th round picks for one high 4th round pick for Willis.   That’s as close as we’ve come to moving a good distance.   With Pennel, we’d be trading up from roughly the mid-20’s to pick 2 or 3.   Way, WAY too expensive.

 

Third,  Pennel is a LT.   We’d draft him to replace Castanzo.  You mention him as a “lg”.   I suspect that’s just a typo.  Pennel is not playing guard for anyone. He’s a pure Left Tackle.

We would have to pick top 5 to get him. If we somehow traded up to get him we would have the best OL for the next decade. 

If we are a playoff team say we get to the divisional round just for kicks and we lose that game that would have us mid 20's in draft order so if Ballard would do a trade up we are looking at probably 3 straight years of no first rounder and probably the loss of a 2nd or 3 rounder on top of that it would take far too much.

I think he's talking about being next to Big Q (best LG).

Thank you.   I think you’re likely right.

Thanks again.

You guys have me imagining Sewell right next to Big Q on our offensive line. My goodness, we would have the best offensive line in the NFL. One of the things I love about Sewell is his athletic ability to get out in space quickly and punish defenders when he's run blocking. I see the next coming of Anthony Munoz when I look at Sewell.

    • This may be the best football interview I have ever seen.  Must see for Colts, Packers or any other football fan!   Rodgers is the most candid I've seen and he's really funny.      
    • Correct. And we need to win that game because if we lose, it is highly unlikely we win the last 5, but I think it is likely they win at least 3 since they play Hou. Jax and a floundering Det.  And they may even be favored against Cle.  That leaves GB for them to upset to sweep into the playoffs and could make it very tough for us to get in at all with our tie breaker status.  This is the more important than any further game this season.  Win and our path to the playoffs is so much more wide open.  But we will still likely need to win at least 3 games to get in unless TN craters somehow.  Those tiebreakers are really going to challenge us in wildcard scenarios.    I could see Hou winning one against us, they usually do and they are on a major upswing.  Their offense is no joke and they do not depend at all on the run so our run defense is less effective obviously.  Pitt and the Raiders are also no joke and both games are away.  This is a critical one if we hope to win the division. If we lose, finishing 9-7 is realistically still in play and I don't see TN losing 3 out of 5.  In fact, I don't see them losing more than 2 of 5.  If we win they'll likely have to win 4 of 5 or sweep to catch us for the division.  I called the Raiders game as being key to make the playoffs and go 10-6 before the season started. With a loss, the desperate WC tie breaker situation, that is especially true.  It's possible for a 10-6 team to miss the playoffs even with the extra team.  Cleveland will almost surely get 10 wins with their easy finish.  Baltimore is also likely.  (Their divisional matchups are really favorable this time around).  Then again maybe we'll sweep the season and get the #1 seed.  Pitt still has to play 5 current playoff teams in their final 6 and KC has to play 3.     Just speculation as always, but that is the fun of a football message board.  Go Colts!
    • ^This^   Another way to look at it is this:  considering the production that Ballard is getting out of his draft picks while they're still on their rookie contracts... why over-spend on re-signing anybody?   If Ballard can continue hitting on draft picks the way he has, then it's almost better to just keep accumulating draft picks, draft well, and let the young guys go out and make plays.   Let other teams over-spend on proven talent while Indy keeps providing an opportunity for young hungry players to prove their talent.   Save the money for slam-dunk moves like Buckner.
    • I bet you are 1000% wrong.   Nelson is the biggest name in the league at G, and it's not even close.  A "bad" Nelson (that gets called for ticky-tack holds that happen on every single NFL play) is still better than 90% of the guards in the NFL.   Your hot-take posts are getting very tiresome.  
    • They have contributed as much their rookie year as the entire group maybe by end of the season, but I doubt there's even a tiny chance of 2 all pros. Even 1 is a major stretch.  I am not sure we have any all pro's on the team since the most deserving one is Buckner (who I count as our first round pick in every way) has impact but no stats to wow anyone not intimately aware of his impact. If he misses this game we may painfully see how valuable.  But their collective impact has certainly added up. 4 starters and 2 solid special teamers in a so far playoff level team is quite a haul for any draft pick class in history.  It is at least adjacent to 2018, unless you don't count Buckner in any way.
