Would you make another first round pick trade?

I wouldn’t hate it, but Indy has more pressing needs at starting QB and LT right now. I would love someone like Tyson Campbell in the 2nd round. 

 

I don't know. That move could put this defense over the top imo.

If Lattimore is still ascending and is considered a shut down CB then possibly. 

 

You don't think Lattimore is a top 5 corner?

If the players he projected and liked at 22 all get picked before us, I could see CB doing this, as a preferable alternative to trading down or picking someone they really weren't high on.

 

This isn't really a trade you make on draft day.

I love a tall lockdown corner as much as the next guy.   And Lattimore is great.

 

But corner ranks behind QB, LT and DE on our priority list and you want to use our first round pick to address that?   I don’t get that?

Well I'd assume we'd re-sign Rivers. As far as DE goes, someone like Lattimore gives the Dline more time to get home which works for us since we don't blitz much. I mean imagine Lattimore, Rhodes, Moore with Rock and Tell to develop.

Even if we resign Rivers, we still have OT and DE to address.   I’d rather not deal with fixing both without our 1st round pick.   I think that’s dangerous.

Be a solid replacement for X Rhodes.  Not sure if need to trade for him.  Too many spoiled with Luck and Manning as QB.  As for LT might have to sign Trent Williams then make a move to trade up for a QB.  Otherwise lean on Brissett and suck it up for a year.  Draft a stud CB in Rd 1 if that’s the case or DE.  Imo sitting too far back to get a top QB this year.

I would trade it for Stafford first but if they decide to keep Stafford then yes Lattimore would be a great addition with that pick.  

Stafford trade is contingent on 2 things:

 

. Rivers retires 

. Lions plan on drafting QB

 

Both are possible

I doubt it happens

From a talent acquisition perspective: yes. And if we didn't have a huge hole at qb I would be all for it.  But even if Rivers comes back  his salary would at least be the 25m he got in 2020, and if you trade for Lattimore you are going to have to give him an extension on average of 18m a year. And just from my perspective if theres a trade and long term signing Lattimore to a new deal,  if I'm Darius Leonard and Braden Smith going into year 4 of my 4 year rookie contract where I was a starter every game I was healthy for, I would be quite angry.

I still think we can move Smith to LT and we can just draft a RT in the second. DE we'd just have to re-sign Houston and hope Turay is finally healthy.

I think Colts ultimately draft LT one of the first 2 rounds

Well then you’re likely not getting him. 
 

I think when JC traded for Steve Smith about 6 years ago or so, I think it cost the Chiefs either a pair of twos or a 2 and a 3.   Even if we’re willing, some other team might offer better.

I think that’s a pipe dream.   Success at RT doesn’t mean you can also be successful at left tackle.  They’re completely different. 
 

Remember, Ballard had to be convinced that Smith and his 32.25 arms could play right tackle.   On the left side, teams prefer 34 or longer.   That’s, in part why Clark was considered such a good prospect.  His arms are 36 inches.   Yes, it will help having Nelson next to you.  But LT takes a special player.

And Clark and his long arms couldn't stop a ten year old. Smith has proven he's one of the best young linemen. There's always exception.

Huh?    I know.   I was explaining if you won’t trade a first for Stafford, then it’s unlikely you will get him.   We traded a first to get five very good years from Buckner. 
 

Odds are Stafford has 5 very good years left. A franchise QB who can give you 5 years should be able to command a first round pick.

If you try to compile a list of left tackles with 32 inch arms, the list might not be one deep.  In other words, zero. 

 

Left tackle is not a place you want to gamble on.

Stafford is a stat QB not a winning QB. He still hasn't won a playoff game

All I'm saying it's worth exploring. Measurements don't matter when you have talent.

He plays for the Lions

They rarely if ever make playoffs 

 

And the bills and browns? Terrible franchises for a long time and both Allen and Mayfield have playoff wins.

Measurements don’t matter?   Really?

 

Tell that to Chris Ballard and he will laugh in your face.   Hysterically!   The Colts have measurement requirements for every position.   Yes, they sign exceptions to the rule,  like Kenny Moore,  but those are rare.

I said Smith is an exception. He wasn't even supposed to play RT and now he's one of the best.

Im not the poster who brought up Stafford.   Other posters did.  I’m just here explaining the downside of you wanting to spend our first on Lattimore.  Remember, I really like him.  Right guy, but the wrong off-season to make this move.

    • I don’t care what formation we run.  I would like to see the Carson Wentz that comes to the line and audibles plays left and right to confuse the defense.  I’m not sure if he changed plays at all during that MVP run year he had with Philly but that’s what I want to see!
    • I would not be surprised if we draft his latest project at CB on the 3rd day of the draft.....  Shemar Jean-Charles   "2020: First-team All-American by Walter Camp Football Foundation (first FBS first-team All-American in school history) ... Second-team All-American and the Sun Belt Player of the Year by PFF College … Second-team All-American by Sporting News and third-team All-American via Phil Steele ... Semifinalist for the Bednarik Award (nation’s top defender) and Thorpe Award (nation’s top defensive back) … First-team All-Sun Belt … Led nation as a senior with 16 PBUs and 17 passes defended (with one interception) in 12 games as a senior … Started all 12 games at cornerback and intercepted a pass at Texas State … Recorded 37 tackles, tying a career high of eight against Charlotte and posting six more against Arkansas State … ESPN’s No. 3 breakout player in 2020 (behind BYU QB Zach Wilson and Alabama QB Mac Jones) … According to PFF, had the rare accomplishment of recording a higher forced incompletion rate (34.6%) than catch rate allowed (32.7%) ... Targeted 35 times in single coverage and allowed only five catches while forcing 18 incompletions, according to PFF … Part of a tandem with Shaun Jolly, helped App State have the best CB tandem in college according to PFF College, as the Mountaineers had an FBS-leading 74 passes defended … Part of only FBS team that allowed its opponents to complete less than 50 percent of its passes (47.9 percent) … During regular season, second in the FBS in yards per coverage snap allowed on the outside … PFF College’s national Defensive MVP of the Week after recording a career-high four pass breakups, eight tackles and one forced fumble against Charlotte … Recorded three PBUs at ULM and two apiece against Marshall, Campbell and Louisiana."
    • I sat in endzone couple times.  It's nice when the offense is coming toward you inside the RedZone....but can't say I liked it when the offense is moving away from you on opposite side of field over 100 yards away.   But I did see Andre Rison's TD vs dolphins in Miami. We were in endzone and colts were driving toward us and rison scored a TD that was voted Top 100 TD's ever, I think. And we saw it in  person not too far away from our seats.   I think I seen another top 100 td, but can't remember for sure, lol. I think it was a Ricky Williams run?  Such a long time ago 
    • Yup. This was a good exercise to get folks thinking. I think the best time to do a board mock is a few weeks before the draft, after a lot of the FA dominos has tumbled. I almost did a flash mock last year the week before draft. Short clock, and perhaps scheduled windows
