Nobody, because after #1 all the good players are gone.   Sincerely, Colts Fan Forum

I wouldn't be upset if we traded it pre draft for someone who performs as well as Deforest Buckner did this year.  What do you think about that idea Matthew???

I’m gonna go out in a limb here and say we won’t have a 1st rounder. Either we trade it away or trade back.

What position do you think the Colts will select with their 1st round pick??

 

Hopefully their dominant LT of the future (I like Christian Darrisaw), a shut down corner like Patrick Surtain if he were to be there, or an uber talented QB like Trey Lance if he slid.

 

Hoping Ballard can work his magic and trade down a bit, add an additional 2nd or 3rd, and still get his guy. 

 

I don't believe the DE class is that great this year, so I would prefer dipping into FA to find a guy there.

I wouldn't deal a 1st round pick for him. Maybe a 2nd or 3rd though unless Reich preferred Wentz. Obviously this would all depend on what happens with Rivers.

Not sure at all, to the OP. Depends on what happens with our FAs, and possibly new FAs we pick up.....

 

 

That said, our top needs, or top things to figure out are

 

Tier 1 - DE, OT, QB

Tier 2 - CB, S, WR, LB

Not really a need - TE, RB, iDL, iOL

 

And I'm not a big of taking WRs in the first unless you have DE/OT/QB/CB figured out. Ss or LBs either. JOK at LB might be an exception as he's a hybrid phenom. He and Leonard would make our LB core the best in the NFL. 

 

DE - It's a good draft for DEs. I still want to resign Houston and Autry, but if we are going to grab a DE, we need to do it in the 1st. No more 2nd or 3rd round guys. It's only T1 due to both starters being FAs. If they are both resigned, it's a T2 need. Our biggest problem along the DL is lack of blitzing IMO, not talent.

 

OT - AC is still under contract, but his recovery is the biggest question, bigger than his age right now. If we resign Veldheer, who did fine, this becomes a T2 need as well. Right now my gut says we resign Veldheer, and if AC recovers well, OT isn't going to be a 1st or 2nd round pick. Aside from the above, there are just so many options and shuffles we could do that could impact the OT position. 

 

QB - Like the two above, if Rivers is resigned, which I believe he will be, this isn't a need. Lots of options here too, and I'm sure other options will present themselves. Personally, I'll take Rivers back in a heartbeat, and I'm sure the Colts will invite him back. Comes down to what he wants.

 

CB - This need could easily move up if the first 3 (QB, DE, OT) are cared for prior to the draft. If they resign Rhodes, which I hope they do, they might not even consider CB in the first 2 rounds. If we're going to continue to play Charmin soft zone, not sure a press man CB like RYS is the guy. I'd move him from CB2 to FS, and Blackmon to SS. One of our biggest offseason priorities though should be able to lock Rhodes up to a 2 year contract. He fit right into our scheme.

If they stayed at 21, finding a good corner would be my move

Wouldn’t break my heart at all. The needs are obvious: LT; DE; CB; TE. And......a mobile QB. But I doubt they draft a QB. 
WR needs to improve but FA is the route to do it. 
TE day 3.

He would be a great selection 

If we can grab him in the third round.

DT or DE....  we want to add to our Waves & Waves pass rush. haha

I think we have put to many assets into the Dline with little results. I think Ballard has to reassess how he grades Dlinemen. He has not done a good job in that area

Jones success will depend on who he gets picked by. One of the main reasons I love him is he is extremely accurate. He makes the most of his opportunities. 

 

He's not going to escape the pocket much but would do wonders behind Colts great pass OL.

Pick my brain...

 

All I hear when people trash Jones is he played for Alabama

 

I'm fine hearing opinions but wanna hear actual details why you don't like him and facets of his game 

 

How many good secondaries has he gone against? It is very hard to evaluate when your superior talent at skill positions has massive separation and you have WRs down to your #3 and #4 that would be starters in most FBS programs.

Why do you think Holden is something special?   

Nothing in my statement implied Holden is special. In fact, I think he is merely serviceable, but looked decent in the limited sample size we got to see. Between him and Veldheer I think we could be ok.

If we re-sign Jared Veldheer and Braden Smith, we will pick someone for pass defense, most likely DE. 

 

Patrick Jones, Pitt. for edge??

Veldheer came out of retirement for the second year in a row to play.  I’d say the odds are petty high he goes back into retirement.

Thank you sir. His talent around him definitely helps his stock. Pending how he does around workouts and combine he should be at 21 or drop further.

I think it’s really hard to evaluate a guy who has played with unreal talent, especially at WR. He’s been on the superior team in every game he’s played. He might end up being a good NFL QB but I don’t think his ceiling is as high as some other QB’s. Would much rather have Wentz or Stafford.

I could tolerate Stafford but I am iffy on giving up 1

 

No thanks to Wentz

I'd give up a 2 or 3 for Stafford, but not a 1. As for Wentz, if we take on that contract, I'd want the Eagles first rounder with Wentz just to get him off their hands.

You’re not going to get a QB at 21 who’s going to give you the production Stafford will for the next 5 years.

That's impossible to know right now.  A QB could come in even as a rookie and succeed behind our line.

    • Right. Reich talked about it in the offseason...that explosive plays were a missing ingredient. Whether he practiced what he preached is a different story (and of course there’s context that goes into that...like who their QB was). I am just saying that he has indicated that he wants to be more than a methodical clock control offense. And I think Reich will look to do that...when they have the QB in place.   DVOA definitely has the Colts defense rated ahead of the offense. The Colts  overall defense was #7 and the overall offense was #12. More specific to passing, the Colts passing offense was #16 and the Colts passing defense was #8.   The defensive ratings are likely skewed by the first half of the season...but the offense had the easiest schedule of any team...and still managed to be middle of the pack in passing offense (according to DVOA).    Yes there’s room for improvement on defense...but it’s tough to expect better than a top 7 unit. An edge rusher will help with the pressure rates...but they have showed they can make big plays and create takeaways. I would say the defense is pretty damn close to being a viable SB winning defense (especially when teams like KC, GB and BUF are currently playing to go to the SB).   So the priority should be the passing offense. It’s the necessity to this team getting to the next level...which is a SB. Otherwise, they would have to buck a trend that only historically elite defenses have been able to do.   And to improve the offense...they need a franchise QB and additional weapons. 
    • Well Frank said moving him to tackle would be discussed this off-season so the Colts are at least considering it.  Rather they do it or not remains to be seen.
    • Good blooper reel of Cole vs Louisiana with 10s left in 2Q where the BJ takes him out.  Good backpedaling and change of direction with enough speed to build up enough force to get knocked down.  May need some NFL strength conditioning to help shed blocks.
    • Do I need to point this out? We all know how valuable LT's are in the draft. If Quentin Freaking Nelson was LT quality, he would have not been paid a # ton of money to be a guard. He would have been scooped up ASAP as a TACKLE.     What....like every team missed this and suddenly he can be just as awesome as a tackle? 
    • Liking what I seen and read on LB Cole.  Looks like a good player capable of handling SAM and MLB rotations.
