Does this look any better w.r.t availability and probability? 

 

I am not sure. It is such a long long way from the draft. 

 

Round 1 - Jaylen Waddle, WR, Alabama

Round 2 - Joe Tryon, EDGE, Washington

Round 3 - Dillon Radunz, OT, North Dakota State

Round 4 - Pete Werner, LB, Ohio State

Round 5 - Noah Gray, TE, Duke

Round 6 - Ifeatu Melifonwu, CB, Syracuse

Round 7 - Kyree Campbell, DT, Florida

I don't see Waddle making it out of the top 10. He'll most likely be the 1st or 2nd WR taken.

 

I've found Fanspeak to be really terrible the past couple of years. Maybe it'll get better as we get closer to the draft, but it didn't seem to last year.

You don't see a 5'10" WR drop like Marquise Brown?? Calvin Ridley went No.26, if I remember right.

 

I think this is definitely possible. Waddle only played in four games during the 2020 season as he suffered a fractured right ankle that resulted in surgery (Oct. 2020) to repair.

 

Calvin Ridley on nfl.com - https://www.nfl.com/draft/tracker/prospects/allPositions?college=allColleges&page=1&status=ALL&year=2018

 

If Waddle was sitting there at No.21, would you draft him?

Man I love Tyron. I watch a lot of Pac 12 football and this guy is legit. He would've been a 1st round pick if he didn't opt out in 2020. I recently did a mock with him sliding to the 3rd round. Nice mock, but while Nico Collins is a baller think Kadarius Toney would be a better fit in our offense.

Smith and Chase?

Wow....I don't know how I mixed them up, but I was definitely thinking of Chase, not Waddle.... I think Smith and Chase are the 1st 2 WRs off the board.

If he was BPA, I think I would. Just because he's such a dynamic playmaker and is already a pretty savvy WR. I'm hopeful we can snag our next LT at 21, but I think Waddle on the board still at 21 would be enticing.

QB, OT, DE, WR - getting any single one of them in free agency should open up the draft for us. The only issue is QB will cost draft capital, the rest probably won't.

I definitely agree. What we do in FA will have much more of an impact on our draft strategy than it has in years past with the glaring holes at what tend to be the most important positions. I still don't see Ballard reaching for need, but I can't see us neglecting some of those positions if we don't address them in FA.

I don't see Waddle leaving top 15. With teams loving his speed, looking at Hill and Ruggs. Plus the WR seems deep in the class, and some big names are going to be free agents if they actually hit the market. The player I love that is realistic in round 1 ( I plan on doing a post about him) Liam Eichenberg OT Notre Dame. The dude looks and plays like someone who can plug in at left tackle right away and have success

Doubt we can trade up to get a QB without hurting our ability to fill other needs. I think of the QB trade options - Darnold may be the cheapest good option. He will not cost a 1st. 3rd round is possible or a 3rd and perhaps a pick next year. Darnold in the right system might be fine. He is young and with a good surrounding cast could really put up some numbers. He should be cheaper than Stafford. We groom Eason as back up and  perhaps he eventually becomes the starting QB. Ideally, would love Watson but I have a better shot of winning the lottery then the Colts trading for him with Texans.

Trey Lance was taken 2 picks before Colts in Rd1. Otherwise, I like it.

Love the Rochelle pick, bc EVERY NFL team should have three DBs from Central Arkansas on the roster...

200: R6 P21 OT Dillon Radunz - North Dakota State

243: R7 P21 WR Amon-Ra St. Brown - USC

 

 

I think Dillon Radunz will move into Day 2 by the time the draft comes around. I am beginning to wonder if getting a CB before Day 3 is as important to our system, I do think we re-sign Rhodes and draft one later. This was what I felt was more realistic because I felt Joe Tryon will move up as well and if Waddle gets past the Patriots at 15, he will be available for us, IMO. The only reason GMs might hesitate is his ankle injury, and if that happens, we should pounce on that. Of course, it purely depends on leftover draft capital after any trades for a QB. Everything points towards a WR in free agency to free up our draft capital.

 

Round 1 - Jaylen Waddle, WR, Alabama

Round 2 - Joe Tryon, EDGE, Washington

Round 3 - Dillon Radunz, OT, North Dakota State

Round 4 - Pete Werner, LB, Ohio State

Round 5 - Noah Gray, TE, Duke

Round 6 - Ifeatu Melifonwu, CB, Syracuse

Round 7 - Kyree Campbell, DT, Florida

I would say it all depends who is still on the board before Ballard looks at Waddle and WR in the first round. Are Tackles starting to get taken a lot. Is there other possible key guys like a Kwity Paye available that they see becoming a Houston type player. I could easily see us passing on him though is what I am saying (Waddle that is). I agree with Radunz falling. I think day 2 is realistic for sure. I actually highly doubt he is a 1st rounder for sure. I like the other picks and also agree as CB would not be a massive concern. We need pressure on the QB.

Ridder is going back to Cincy I believe. If this could happen I would love it but those trades are not realistic.

    • I liked it a lot, but I found that baseball purists did not like it as much. Even though the Yankees beat the Mets most of the time, most of the games were competitive and the games the Mets won brought good memories.   I recall where I was when this happened. (I get chills. ) I remember walking in the street and I jumped up when utility man Matt Franco got this walk-off hit off Mariano Rivera at the bottom of the 9th. My eyes glanced at a man sitting in his car, who screamed at the same time. It was rare for Mariano to blow a save. This was around 1996 or so.     Listen to that great call. I love it!   That was one of my favorite Mets teams.   
    • Again in terms of projecting values out, this all depends on how we see Braden Smith valued.    I said to go high at $10M a year based on a few things:   1) If you asked many people is Braden Smith a top-5 RT, most would say no. I think he is. either way a top-5 RT slots in at an AAV of $10M a year right now   2) Most of the guys getting top $ at RT got that top dollar by getting it on the open market. Lane Johnson is the exception. However, the Eagles gave him that extension when there was originally talk about him moving to LT as Peters aged. The guys that signed extensions with their current teams got $10M a year or less.    3) This is to say I think Smith can totally get over $10M a year if he hits the open market and wants to test the waters. However, if the Colts looked to extend him now and give him financial security as a 2nd round pick that has not made much money yet in his career and did so in a year where the cap came down and a lot of players are going to take less money if they are not a superstar, I think him signing a deal averaging $10M a year would be a win for him and the Colts     At the end of the day, my entire point of this thread was to simply point out that us investing $50-$55M in a starting OL out of a future cap of around $200-$220M is very, very doable and arguably reasonable in terms of how Ballard likes to build through the trenches. Having an OL tie up 25% of your cap and a combined OL and QB tie up less than 40% of your cap for the next 3-4 years is actually very, very reasonable.   I have admittedly been a big advocate for Trent Williams. He is aging, sure. But he has shown no signs at all of slipping. And he even has one less year of wear and tear on his body from sitting out a year with the whole tumor fiasco where Washington really didn't do right by him with their medical team. So would I throw a 4 year deal at him with big money where the only guaranteed money was paid out in the first two years and then there were salaries on the back end that can easily allow a cut if the performance dips? Absolutely.   Either way, this was really to just get our base chatting about all this since the canned narrative everyone is spitting out is the same narrative that is being fed to fans from the media that says "they'll have too much tied up in their OL with the extension for Kelly and the upcoming extensions for Nelson and Smith." I'm just saying if we managed things the way guys like Mike Bluem have been, then we can comfortably invest in a top FA  LT if we wanted to without it being overly painful downstream. 
    • I personally do not like the idea of trying to come up with a stop gap or developmental guy at the most inportant position on the OL. Solidify that position with a dependable proven LT whether it  Villanueva or someone else. Same with DE. Find a proven pass rusher and pay him. Use the draft or WR, CB and solidifying other positions including OL. I think we are very close to being in  SB contention and 3 to 4 good players may push us over the top. We can't foolishly throw money at these guys but if we are prudent we have plenty of money to carry us.
    • Yeah, my little voice partly thinks the same (perhaps contract year type of performance). I just hate saying it out loud, as he was considered very very raw when drafted. He was used all over the place at USC, and relied way too much on his natural gifts instead of technique. Maybe he was a bit lazy, but it's also possible he was just raw, wasn't able to focus, and things are just now clicking. Or maybe he was lazy a bit, and finally grew up or matured enough to commit to his craft.    He's an interesting guy to follow. I could see it falling either way. I remember his recruiting out of HS (think he was out of Mainland) Thought for sure he'd end up at FSU, UF, or Auburn. My FSU and Auburn buds thought he was a lock lol. One of my FSU buds swore USC bought him a car lol. I was hoping ND would offer, but rumor was, he didn't have close to the grades needed.
