Anyone think there’s a chance he leaves San Fran? They’ve got a lot of decisions to make and can’t franchise tag him, as well as a very limited amount of cap space. We could certainly outbid them. 
 

Imagine a left side of him and Big Q with Jonathan Taylor running behind them. We would easily have the best line in the game.

It is possible. I think from the Colts point of view, moving Braden Smith to left tackle opens up the draft for us, IMO. 

 

Also, from a cap space point of view, the Steelers are way up against the cap. I would try to get Alejandro Villaneuva from them if I could for a couple of years. If Big Ben retires, he might be open to moving.

I've said it in a previous post but I do think getting a veteran FA Left Tackle signed for two years has to be an option to be considered, until we get the QB position resolved long term. I think if we can get in a free agent at LT and DE (Williams/Okung/Villenuava and say Dupree/Hendrickson, etc.) that can save us draft capital to trade up and take our franchise QB.   

 

The are some good options in the first and second round for Left Tackles but signing someone like Trent Williams would definitely be something this front office should also be looking at if he were to become available.

Williams, Okung, and Villanueva will all be 33 next season — same age as Costanzo. Maybe Ballard signs one as a stopgap but it shouldn’t preclude him from drafting a left tackle early.

    • I would hope not. Especially, if your drafting folks in the 1st and 2nd Rd. I expect most 1st Rd players to contribute as rookies. 2nd Rd picks, should be starting or heavily contributing by year two IMO. You don’t draft guys in the 1st or 2nd rounds, that take 3-4 years to develop. If, they take that long, call it what it is, a bad pick.

    • But in what is called a weak DE draft class, how much if any will a 1st or especially a 2nd round pick improve the DE group??
