I like Lance better than Jones but I bet Jones will be there at 21. Jones is no slouch but I can see Lance being really good. He can run and throw really well.

I like both

The only thing we know is Lawrence will be drafted by JAC...but it's pretty easy to see what happens ; )

 

#1 - QB

#2 - QB (NYJ trade back to a QB needy team OR take one)

 

Top 2 QBs are off the board...then it gets crazy.

 

#3 - QB (if MIA trades back) or Sewell 

#4 - QB (draft a QB if Sewell goes #3 OR trade back to QB needy team)

#5 - Sewell (if QB goes at #3) or QB (trade back)

#6 - WR Smith/Chase

#7 - WR Smith/Chase

#8 - Pitts or CB

 

Yes...unless Sewell goes at #3...the first 4 are QBs. And if he does go #3...then the rest of the top 5 are QBs.

 

The problem is the lack of top 5 non-QB talent...especially with players opting out and the lack of a Combine. 

 

A team could go for Chase or Smith in the top 5...but I think they will both go right after the top 5. Pitts won't get drafted over a QB. Surtain probably isn't a top 5 player. Parson and Rousseau opted out...so I doubt a team takes a risk on either that early (in lieu of a QB or a trade back).

 

How does this affect the Colts? It means they will have to trade up to #2-3 to get their guy. It would be incredible and scary all at once.

One key part to the various QB situation are ones potentially available via trade.

 

I think it's unlikely Atlanta takes a QB in round 1 this year. Matt Ryan probably has another 3-4 good years left in him. I think it makes more sense to add someone at another position and try to win with Ryan now. Same thing with Stafford in Detroit.

 

Carolina will certainly be looking at the QBs in this draft.

 

Denver might stick with Drew Lock but they could decide to move on from him.

 

There are a couple potential QB trades that could impact this.

  • DeShaun Watson
  • Jalen Hurts

As much as the Texans will try to keep Watson and not trade him he might be unhappy enough where they are forced to.

 

With the Eagles firing Doug Peterson I wonder if that means they are going to commit with Wentz. If they do then maybe Jalen Hurts becomes available? 

 

Mitch Trubisky is a free agent. Some team in need of a QB might feel they can make it work with him similar to the Titans signing Ryan Tannerhill.

I would never draft an Alabama QB in Round One--those guys are throwing to receiver groups that are collectively better than what some NFL teams have

    • The "pundit" wrote his statement as if Rhodes were still on the team and not a street free agent. I was not saying we are set, we have talent. However, the premise was that the national pundit didn't even know Rhodes is a street free agent!
    • Manning and Brady, or I should say QB in general, is not a good comp. QB is a singular position which the entire O goes through, and is typically the face/leader of the team, and plays every snap. And then add on top of that PM and TB are 2 of the greatest ever and were able to play every game, all game.. And plugging them in to a team is very different than plugging in a guy who would be one of 4 on the DL, and likely playing only around 60% of snaps.    Like I said, love to have him on a reasonable deal. I just don't see him being generous enough to make it work. I'd recommend looking at our ammo (2 early draft picks, 42ish M in cap), and solving for the holes we need to fill (2xDE, LT, WR1 and 4, CB1 and 4, MIKE, TE).    I really do think most of the team will be put back together from last year. Rhodes will get a good raise, Autry and/or Houston likely, or at minimum one (similar $ to last year). TY is really the only one I don't envision being back. Perhaps Walker moves on too, but we'll need to fill that hole as Oke doesn't look to be the 3 down answer. Anyways, lot of high dollar holes, with decent, not great ammo. I'm hoping they go DE in the 1st, LT in the second. Back to the question above, how would you allocate the draft picks and $, while filling all the holes, and making it work with Watt.
    • Pundits as far as my recollection has always referred to the media folks.....wow, a lot of folks in an uproar over nothing!
    • I personally see where Doug is coming from. Watson wants out but shouldn't have signed the contract. HOU doesn't have to trade him and shouldn't. If not for any other reason than to set the precedent. Both parties will have to look bad because neither should back down. This for Colts fans is perfect off-season entertainment. 
    • I'd say (at least since they moved to Indy) it'd be the 2005, 2006 or 2009 team.  The 2005 and 2009 teams had the best records (14-2) in regular season.  Unfortunately, the 2005 team was one and done in playoffs so hard to argue they were the best as they didn't even win a playoff game let alone make it to the SB.   I agree that Polian/Caldwell stopped the momentum by resting players in 2009.  I'll never forget Peyton standing on the sideline with his helmet on the rest of that game after they pulled starters, he looked absolutely furious.  Jeff Saturday said years later that his biggest regret as a player was not going for a perfect season in 2009.... the SB loss that year was a tough pill to swallow, the only thing I was happy about was New Orleans brought a title to their city so soon after Hurricane Katrina.   All that aside, the Colts failed to win the SB that year.  I think Dungy was a far superior coach to Caldwell.  We were without Marvin that year, Bob Sanders was on IR, etc.  With a pretty similar team the following year we went 10-6 and then without Peyton the next year we went 2-14 and it was exposed that our roster was actually pretty weak without stud QB play.  The more I think about it, the more I wonder if 2009 was more Peyton being a hero than the Colts having a very great team from top to bottom.     I go back and forth on this, but thinking the 2006 group may be a bit better of an overall team.  They were unbeaten at home and sealed the deal with a SB win.  While Bob Sanders only played 4 regular season games, he was back for the playoffs and the defense only gave up 73.3 yards rushing per game in that run against some pretty darn good teams.  We had a better OL (Tarik Glenn at LT instead of Charlie Johnson in  2009).  And we had a better WR corps with both Marv and Reggie than we did in 2009 with Reggie and Garcon.  I think you could argue the RB duo of Addai (1081 yards) and Rhodes (641 yards) was as good or better in 2006 than Addai (828 yards) and D. Brown (281 yards) in 2009.   I think our defense was better overall in 2006 than it was in 2009 (especially come playoff time when Sanders was back) and that we had a better head coach in Dungy than we did with Caldwell.  Going position by position (or positional group by group), I think the only position where the 2009 team was clearly better than 2006 is punter (McAfee > Hunter Smith).     I know the 2009 team had more pro-bowlers and all-pros, but I'm not sure if they were overall better than 2006.  The 2009 team had 3 first-team all-pros (Clark, Freeney, Manning) and 1 2nd team (Wayne) along with 7 probowlers (Wayne, Freeney, Manning, Saturday, Clark, Mathis, Bethea).  The 2006 team had 1 first-team all pro (Marv) and two 2nd team all pros (Manning, Saturday) along with 5 pro bowlers (Saturday, Manning, Marv, Reggie, T. Glenn).  So there is some argument there, but we had all the players who made pro-bowl in 2009 on the 2006 team (and 2006 we had Marv, Glenn, and at least at play off time we had a healthy Bob Sanders).
