Dodd scouting Trey Lance in Person. Thoughts?

After all the smoke screens and smoke signals of last year with Love I would just say - Colts doing their due diligence. 

 

Also - this was the only game Trey Lance would play this season so I would be surprised if most QB-needy teams didn't go to see him in that game.

After speculation about Jordan Love last year I'm not buying it. Most likely, Dodds was there to scout North Dakota State's Left Tackle Dillon Radunz. Many scouts say he will go in the 1st round. Gotta be looking at AC's replacement.

That makes more sense, than Trey. Although we will be heavily involved in any QB rumors.

So............

 

Trey Lance is playng one game this season,  ONE.      And people here are thinking we are only looking at the OT.

 

Do people here know all 32 teams scout every possible player whether we need the position or not?    Do we know this?

 

So, even if the team is happy with our QB position and has no plans to draft a QB,  we scout the position anyway.   Because that's what is done.    This is not my opinion.    It is fact.   Period.

 

Were we there to scout the big OT?    I'm sure we were.    Were we there to also scout Lance?    I'm sure we were.

In my opinion, I believe that we are not looking at him.  We are doing due deligence.  

 

think about it last year.  Everyone linked us to Jordan Love.  They talked about how Ballard went in person and that we had several meetings.  Then cam the rumor on draft night that we were looking at trading up.  Ballard denied all of this.

 

Then on the flip side, no one talked about us scouting Eason.  But it comes out the Dodds and Decker both not only talked with him but flee out and meet with him.  None of this was reported.

 

What i'm saying is that the Colts play everything close to the vest.  I view this as smokescreens.  Also, everything coming out of the Colts is how much they love Eason and how impressive he has been.  I view Eason as the next QB.

I would love to have QB Trey Lance on this loaded roster. With his talent, he could take this team to new heights, unless the front office and coaching staff see Eason as their future franchise QB.

Maybe Dodds was looking into all players that he see's fit for our team. Looking at both Lance and Radunz. Trey Lance reminds me of Russell Wilson/ Lamar Jackson. Definitely Duel threat QB.

Idk about Lance, just not enough tape or info out on him. He is someone who needs the combine and East-West Shrine game so you can see him practice/play against some talent

Regardless of who Lance compares to, he is undoubtedly a very exciting QB that will make this team instantly prime time worthy in my opinion. I would LOVE having him on the Colts.

Don’t count on it. He’ll go higher than the Colts’ pick. Keep your focus on Eason. He’s the future.

Remember that both Deshaun Watson and Patrick Mahomes were drafted outside the top 10 picks.

 

There could certainly be a chance Lance could be available after the top 10 picks. Would Ballard still have to trade up a bit to get him? Most likely. But the move up wouldn't kill them draft capital wise.

Moving up in the first round is almost ALWAYS expensive.  Very, very expensive.   You have to entice the other team to move down.   You may also have to outbid another team who might also want to trade up, maybe even for the same player. 
 

The idea that you’re talking about trading up high in the first round and you don’t think it will be expensive is pretty shocking,    Sorry.

Maybe this subject should be brought up around weeks 12 to16? 

We haven't even seen exactly who is picking where at this point.

A lot can happen between now and week 16. 

Plus we need to see the combine and the bowl games. 

There is always players who drop in value just like some will rise. 

Maybe Darnold could be got for a 2nd or 3rd rd pick?

Trey Lance is this year's Jordan Love.  A small school QB that's flashed enough NFL potential that teams are taking notice.

 

What's the even money on Trey Lance being talked about every day from now until draft day, when we wind up not picking him?

I kind of feel like Lance will go pretty high which will probably mean we won't have the chance to draft him. IMO the guy who's going to be this year's Jordan Love is Zach Wilson. Well at least he is for me. He's the one that has caught my eye and it feels like we have realistic chance at getting him if we want him. Lance, Fields and Lawrence are all probably going around top 5.

we need a QB so i think trading up is something they have to at least consider.  im not saying we are all in on lance but he is an option.  i do not think its going to be eason 

Agree with the first part here. I can't agree with the last sentence because I haven't seen anything from Eason so it's hard for me to go one way or the other with him. The buzz from the Colts seem to be that they love what they are seeing from him so far. Now that doesn't say much, so ... yeah... we definitely have to consider trading up for a QB we love... whoever that might be...

The only comparison you got right there is the small school aspect. Totally different players. Love showed the touch and mechanics you drool over for a QB and lacked pretty much the rest, and i was a huge love advocate and that was because he was a moldable qb for the future. Lance on the other hand pretty well has it all, hes not just flashy the kid in 2019 threw for nearly 2800 yards, 28 TD's and ZERO interceptions, 67% completion rate rushed for 1100 yards and 14 touchdowns..... If he wasnt coming out in a absolutely loaded draft class i think we are looking at a #1 over all pick. I wouldnt be surprised to see him go ahead of Fields at this point. The guy is special.
