Ballard is a wheeling’, dealin, son of a gun. You can best believe he will likely trade down. What I expect is a slight trade down in the 1st to pick up a 4th and some change, which he’ll then package to move into the 3rd.

A trade down with Browns would net us a 4th

I think I've started telling myself that Ballard will do both types of trades we've seen from him (I mean isn't this what we love during draft season, being armchair GM). I can see Ballard trading a good ways back and going all the way to the top of the second round, getting a third a maybe a 4th/5th as well. Then taking that 4th/5th rounder obtained and moving up from pick 54 like he did with getting Taylor last year.

 

And with this 3 picks, take Liam Eichenberg (OT), Pat Freiermuth (TE), and Jordan Smith (DE)

theoretically he should be able to get better than a 4th--the example I listed earlier was a trade w/ Green Bay where CB sends them #21 in exchange for #29 and #93

Seems like a Ballard move to do this.  If have no LT by draft time and a solid LT is there, would be hard to imagine a trade back but just never know.  Remember when Sweat dropped and they traded back when could’ve used someone like Sweat (still could!).

I would be fine with that, but Greenbay would likely be moving up for an OT that we could probably use ourselves. Question is would the risk be worth the reward in that scenario.

personally I think GB might be more interested in moving up for a WR

 

it's looking more and more like the 3 OTs who are considered sure-fire 1st rounders (Sewell, Slater and Darrisaw) may all be gone by #21. I've seen Jenkins mocked before #21 as well (and after #21). I've even seen one mock that has Radunz going at #20. Most of the other OTs I've seen mocked more often in Round Two than in Round One.

 

If one of the 3 sure-fire OTs falls to #21 I assume Ballard might keep the pick and draft that guy. If one or more of the Round One quality edge guys falls to #21 I could see Ballard picking him. If Jaycee Horn falls to #21 I could see Ballard picking him as well.

 

If none of the guys Ballard really likes (more than others he could get in Round Two) falls to #21, I could see him either trading down farther in Round One or trading down into Round Two.

 

And if I can put on my Captain Obvious uniform for a second, I think whatever free agents Ballard manages to sign will speak volumes about what he intends to do in the draft.

I think the odds are far better than 50/50 to trading down.

 

To gain a Day 2 pick, we will have to trade OUT of the 1st round.

 

These would be the probable options:

 

Colts 21 (800) trade with NY Jets  34 (560) and 66 (260)

 

Colts 21 (800) trade with ATL  35 (550) and 68 (250)

 

Colts 21 (800) trade with PHI  37 (530) and 69 (245)  and 164 (24.5)

 

Colts 21 (800) trade with CIN  38 (520) and 70 (240)  and  132 (40)

 

Colts 21 (800) trade with CAR 39 (510) and 73 (225) and 134 (39.5)

 

Colts 21 (800) trade with DEN 40 (500) and 71 (235) and 135 (38.5)

 

Some of these are not exact,  but they're close enough to likely get a deal.   But the key is the other team has to want to give up that much in order to do a deal.    It takes two....

Yeah, those are all nice options. I would do pretty much any of them. 

 

For whatever it's worth it... I was thinking... the third this year doesn't hurt a ton... but... 1st or 2nd next year would hurt. Is it possible we actually do a trade similar to the one with Washington where we got mid-second and future second. Maybe Ballard aims at next year draft compensation rather than this year. But I definitely could see him trading down from 21. 

 

This #21 is very intriguing to me simply because we know something about it before we even enter the draft - we know Ballard refused to include it in trade talks for two different QBs. This sounds to me like it should mean something. He has a specific plan for it, but I don't know what it is.

Is it trading back?

Is it selecting a specific player that's not likely to go much further down or does he like a group of players in that range that are not likely to fall down?

Is it potentially trading #21 for a another high end player(similar to last year trade for Buckner) - maybe he's had talks with a team for another star and they have some tentative agreement on a trade but are waiting for some things to play out before making the deal?

 

No idea... many guesses here, but #21 is definitely one to watch. Something is up with it IMO.

Working on my post Wentz Mock draft and how does this sound:

 
Colts send Jack Doyle and number 21 to Greenbay and get pick 29 and 92 back? Greenbay is in win now mode and Tunyan is their starting TE. They trade up and get either a WR like Bateman and Tony (jumping the Ravens and Bills) or can take an OT like Jenkins. Colts can take Cosmi or Eichenberg.

No team is giving up a draft pick for Doyle.  Not that you're saying it directly, but others have.

 

I like the trade up scenario by GB for Toney.  I think they need help at WR and Toney is the kind of player that could make an impact day 1 with his speed.

They’re really giving up their 3rd for #21. Doyle is really just a way to sweeten the deal and a salary dump by the Colts.

I mentioned earlier (as an example of moving down in Round One) #21 going to GB for #29 and #93--the Colts shouldn't need to include a player since moving up 8 picks in the 1st round is at least as valuable as pick #93.

I don’t think Doyle moves the needle in any trade.   Not going into his age 31 season and with his history of injuries. 

 

I do like the idea of trading back and taking an OT like who you mentioned.  That is, unless we settle our OT situation in free agency which I think we might.   50/50?

Sounds good. How does it work out In regards to the trade value chart though?

I was thinking that you might be able to get Samuel Cosmi a little later and since Darrisaw (who I really like) might be gone before our pick, we could trade back and still be in good shape.

Yup...   my thought too.  
 

I think we pre-arrange a tentative trade.   If X is on the board, no trade, we draft the player.   But if X is taken we make the trade back and take the pick.   Find a player we like at the back of the first or top of the second.

the trade value (Rich Hill version) is #21 = 261 and #29 + #92 = 246

 

on the "old" (J. Johnson) chart, #21 = 800 and #29 + #92 = 772

 

I've seen Cosmi mocked late 1st to early 2nd, so he might still be there at #29 or even #34 (if Ballard were to trade down w/ the Jets like I posted earlier). I agree that Sewell, Slater and probably Darrisaw will go before #21 but I can't get a good feel for where T. Jenkins is likely to go. And the majority of mocks I've seen have Eichenberg lasting until the 2nd round FWIW.

I still like the hypothetical trades I proposed a few days ago:

 

#21 to NYJ for #34 and #66 OR

 

#21 to ATL for #35 and #68

 

Ballard gets back a 3rd rounder and I feel confident a really promising OT prospect will still be there at either #34 or #35. Cynically speaking, I also like the prospect of picking in Round Two before Howie does. If the Jets didn't want to give up #66, I'd make a counter offer: #21 for their #34, #86 and #129.

I like a Jets trade as you noted above IF they hang with Darnold (which they might). They will need to get him some more weapons. I’d expect them to trade out of the second spot with someone like Atlanta, who could well be looking to find Ryan’s replacement. They could still get a stud LT at 4 like Sewell and use 21 for an impact WR. They would have received another high  Day 2 pick from Atlanta ( and more ) making their own 3rd round pick less critical.

when I think Ballard might trade down in a given draft, I look for teams with multiple later round picks. IIRC this year the Jets have 2 Round 3 picks as well as 2 in Round Five. The picks are now #66 & #87, and #130 & #138 (but I think New England also had to forfeit a 3rd round pick, so some of those numbers may be off by one spot).

 

That's why if I were Ballard and the Jets hypothetically  wanted #21 (maybe they wouldn't, given that they already have 2 first round picks) I'd ask for #34 and #66 in return, and if Douglass wouldn't agree to that, I'd ask for #34, #87 and #130.

 

IIRC Minnesota, Washington, Detroit and Cleveland also now have multiple 3rd round picks.

When we traded back a few years ago and hit a future 2 in the next draft...   we dropped 20 spots.    
 

We might not need to drop quite as much this year...   we’re picking 21 this year.   That year we were set to pick 26, and dropped 20 spots to 46. 
 

Finding a team to trade you two 2’s for your one is very hard to do.   Most teams won’t.

Chances are high Colts won't have a 22 1st so if Ballard pulls this off and snatches a top pick near the 2nd would be great

I’m with ya...   and I’m not saying it can’t or won’t happen.   Only that it’s very hard.  
 

I saw an article earlier this week about NFL people wondering which draft picks are valuable?   2021?   Or maybe 2022?    There was no consensus.   Just a lot of thinking out loud....

I'd consider it if it were with a team that I thought would finish 2022 near the bottom of the league. In part it would depend on how comparatively deep I felt the 2021 and 2022 drafts were, especially in Rounds 3-5.

Really depends what position they are targeting. If it’s a LT or DE maybe it’s best to get him in the first so there is the fifth year option.  Trading back does get us more picks but I think this roster needs a couple more impact players instead of average ceiling types. More likely to get that in the 1st.

IIRC Leonard, Pittman and Taylor were all impactful 2nd rounders--I think Ballard strongly feels that, in most years, there are about 18-20 "true" first round guys and after that there's not much qualitative difference between a guy picked at, say, #28 or #30 versus a guy picked at, say, #35 or #40.

 

But given the Colts' positional needs, and what the first 20 picks are likely to be this time around, Ballard may well also feel pretty confident that an OT or DE or CB he really likes will fall to #21--in which case I don't think he trades down this year unless some other GM just blows him away with an offer too good to pass up.

I’m hoping there is a run on QBs and WRs pushing lineman down to us.

if Mac Jones is REALLY moving up like some say, that's 5 Round One QBs. There are at least 4-5 sure-fire WRs (including Pitts, who IMO is more of an over-sized WR than a true TE), 3 probable Round One CBs, possibly as many as 5 DEs, 3-4 LBs and likely one DT.

 

And at least 3 OTs (4 if you include Jenkins) and 1-2 OGs. So it's certainly possible someone CB really likes will still be there at #21.

IMHO, they have a player or 2 that they think may fall to 21

 

My hope is (and maybe the Colts) Darrisaw is there parked at 21,  if not then Paye DE from Michigan  

 

Both are day 1 starters and may just be BPA (or close) at 21

 

My belief is that both will be gone by 21.  I just dont see Ballard using that pick to trade up. 

(Maybe I will be wrong)

 

If the player in mind is gone, (whether its my pick or not) I see a trade happening

 

A trade to an early 2nd round (or later 1st) pick may still yield a starting OT

The more I watch players in this draft the more I like the players in that range. Darrisaw, Paye, Rousseau, Bateman. Jaycee Horn is my new favorite and I would absolutely take him at 21 if he's there. I think he will be a steal there. 

 

I'm always up for a trade down too... I think we are in a good position overall.

My first thought is LT or DE, but would say that at least so far the early draft of Rock at CB hasnt gone well

 

We still dont have an answer long term at CB, (Maybe Tell steps up into the role)

 

I do believe that our CBs will look better if we have a little better rush on the edges......

 

With at least one glaring hole on the OL and one glaring hole on the DL, it will be interesting to see how CB addresses this draft

 

Does he stay with his mantra of "lines first" or does he get more of a pure BPA, which could include WRs, TEs, S, and CBs that 

would surprise many (or some) fans

    • Between Canada and the USA?   I usually drive to Montréal twice a year and was planning on Quebec last summer ....   hopefully this summer.  
    • If Doyle doesn’t retire already had him being cut saving the Colts $5.45 million against the cap next season.  A replacement in FA would be TE Dallas Goedert (Eagles).  In Round 1 am projecting TE Jalen Wydermyer from Texas A&M to be a target.   Both Rhodes and Carrie I project to be unsigned.  RCB Rasul Douglas (Raiders) would be a backup RCB might be a target.  If we had the cap space RCB Darious Williams (Rams) went UDFA to NFL star 11m valuation (15m easily).  Still hold out on adding FS Marcus Williams (Saints) who is playing on a 10.6m tag.  Should get around 4yr/60m 35m guaranteed.   In the end I doubt the Colts sign any of these options and focus on the draft.   I like the Sam Tevi addition and think the Colts got a steal of a deal for him.  Am hoping Fisher is healthy and can start by week 5 giving the Colts an option to trade Tevi to a team that just drafted a rookie LT that is struggling or got injured and need trade capital.  See Will Holden as our 3rd LT and Davenport getting released during cut downs.  One idea is to sign Fisher to his one year contract this year and use additional capital to go after someone younger like RT Brian O’Neill (Vikings).  Was very high on O’Neill coming out of college as a LT.  O’Neill and Smith are two of the best players currently playing RT that moved from original college positions and have flourished.  O’Neill would be a long-shot addition but would create options to mix-n-match scenarios here.  Either way by not drafting a rookie OL that can start we are going to be financially hurting I believe next off-season unless we cut players like Doyle and Stewart with a Post-June 1 designation.  I don’t see the Colts being aggressive next off-season in Free Agency but below is an early look to next off-season have been working on.   FA Adds RT Brian O’Neill (move to LT) 4yr/64m 16m APY with 30m guaranteed.  Option 2: resign Fisher with 2 year extension 12m/15m   Cut IDL Grover Stewart – save 8.125m or 9.378m June 1 Cut TE Jack Doyle – save 5.45m   Resign/Extend LB Darius Leonard -not a true MLB. My original offer 5 years $82.5 million 40m guaranteed  RT Braden Smith 4/58m 30m guaranteed LG Nelson 5 years $85 million (17m) = 15m, 16m, 17m, 18m, 19m – top LG makes 14.781m / yr TE Mo Allie-Cox 3yr/20.8 or 6.93 APY (5.5-6.8-8.5)  WR Zach Pascal 3/24 8m APY (5.4-8.6-10)  LDE Tyquan Lewis 3/11.4m 3.8m APY (2.2m, 3.8m, 5.4m)  RB Nyheim Hines 3yr/13.645m (4.55m APY) (base 3.9m, 4.5m 5.65m with 1.35m roster bonus each year) Similar to A. Eckler  DE Kemoko Turay 1/2m  LT Will Holden 1/1.4m 1 C Joey Hunt 1/1.25m 9 RG/LG Chris Reed (OTC eval 6.3m backup capable of 13.4m pay play) signed for 1.127m renew 1/1.75m RG Glowinski 2yr/18m DE Al-Quadin Muhammad 1yr/4m 12.063m cap space IDL Isaac Rochell 2/3-3.5m 9.063m cap space   2022 Early Draft    Edge Kayvon Thibodeaux, Edge, Oregon RD 1 Drake Jackson, Edge, USC – or LB good 2019 RD 1 Myjai Sanders, EDGE, Cincinnati – all day every day good hand moves and pass deflections RD 2 George Karlaftis III, DL, Purdue – solid 2019 7.5 sacks 1 FF 2 PDs – great field awareness hands for Ints Aidan Hutchinson, IDL, Michigan 2019 only decent year 4.5 sacks 2 FFs 6 PDs.  6’6” 269 LBS.  Great catch-up speed RD 2-3   CB   Derek Stingley JR, CB, LSU – career year in 2019 6 INTs and 15 PDs.  Low 2020 but FF RD 1 Kaiir Elam, CB, Florida – low tkls, 2-3 INTs/yr improved 2020 with 11 PDs RD 1-2 Ahmad Gardner, CB, Cincinnati – 3 INTs each year 2020/2019 and 6-8 PDs RD 1 Roger McCreary, CB, Auburn – 1 FF capable of INTs and decent at PDs 6/11 2020/2019   S Kyle Hamilton, S, ND – hands for INTs and 6-7 PDs/yr RD 1 Kolby Harvell-Peel, S, Oklahoma State – sacks, FFs, hands for INTs and 2019 13 PDs RD 2-3   WR Justyn Ross, WR, Clemson RD 2 George Pickens, WR, Georgia RD 1 John Metchie III, WR, Alabama RD 2-3 Romeo Doubs, WR, Nevada   LB Christian Harris, LB, Alabama – size, sacks, FF, Int RD 1-2 Devin Lloyd, LB, Utah - size, sacks, FF, Int – low on PDs   OL RG Cain Madden, Marshall Finished top 10 among RGs RT Evan Neal, Alabama R2-3 RT Darian Kinnard, Kentucky R3-4   Come draft day be it Round 1 or Round 2 would like to see the Colts address either WR or CB early but with our Edges I wouldn’t be upset if we drafted someone like Myjai Sanders (Cincinnati).  Realize pay scale always influx and we hope the cap increases at the end of next year and players might just play to bigger contracts.  Good baseline to start with and reason why teams draft rookies to help off-set the rising costs of contract extensions.  
    • As you likely guessed, I think we either re-sign Fisher or re-sign one OR both of Tevi and/or Davenport.   Figured if we couldn’t find a LT that worked for us at pick 54 this year,  we’re likely not going to find one in the 2nd round next year.  I think we’d fill the hole with someone until 2023 and use our 1st in that draft to fill the LT.  But for now, I’m guessing EF.      As to CB, if we had to, we could go corner in the 2nd and TE in the 3rd.  But, for whatever reason, I’m far more optimistic on Rock and Tell than most here.  
    • Believe it or not, some people thought JT was better than Saquan
    • Wouldn't say people didn't think he wouldn't live up to the hype, but about 70% of the board did not like that pick (or at least 70% of the posts were negative).
