So I've been reading these mock drafts lately, as a lot of us have I would presume and you would not believe some of the off-based reasons for picking a player I've read.....outside of (currently) needing a LT these are some of the absurd ones:

 

1. Having Rhodes on one side is nice, but the Colts need someone opposite of him.

 

Okay, so the first things that stands out is that they don't realize Rhodes is a FA. Secondly, while RYS had some bumps last year he is still a better starter than quite a few Corners in this league.....plus have Moore, Rodgers (who showed some savvy last year) and Tell coming back from Covid.

 

AKA they were lazy and did zero research.

 

2. The Colts could use some better depth at Linebacker.

 

The starters are in place in Leonard and Okereke and the depth is Speed, Franklin, Adams and Glasgow. Speed is the one the coaching staff thinks will break out by inheriting Walkers snaps, who will be gone as a free agent. He needed a couple years to learn the speed of the NFL while having the same measurables as Leonard and Okereke including good instincts. Now he will get to display them. Plus, Adams and Franklin are ST studs and still have another year under contract.

 

3. And here is the kicker........Malik Hooker is leaving via free agency so he needs replaced.

 

 

Wow. Just wow. We were beat up for drafting Blackmon in the 3rd Round as an injured player and despite that he was right up there in the DROY rankings as a Free Safety, Malik Hookers position. Wow. Do we need a safety or two for depth, yes, but we don't need to replace a starter who's was replaced already last year when they declined the 5th year option and openly drafted his replacement in the 3rd round. 

 

These pundits are *s and if they are that lazy in selecting our players in mock drafts then they are that lazy with every other team as well.

 

Anyone read some other lazy analysis like these and care to share for a good laugh!??!

Exactly what do you expect? 

We as fans don't have a whole drafting crew to keep us up all year.

Where were you in these mock drafts? 

Most all have jobs to work and don't do this for a living. It is just for fun and it is not taken that serious. 

Cant you find something a little more meaningful to complain about?

Who are you talking about?

 

Posters here doing a mock?

 

Or media doing a Colts mock? 
 

Inquiring minds are asking?

You have to realize though, that that is not a smart way to approach corner. You don’t know if Rhodes will be back, Rodgers is 5’8” so only a nickel (same with Kenny), and Tell was a project a a corner convert who played safety in college. That’s not nearly enough to be “set” at corner. You can’t pass on upgrades for a position groups while betting on a bunch of question marks.

I could be wrong on this, but I believe Rodgers is listed at 5’10”.   Same as Kenny Moore.   I’ve never seen him referenced as 5’8” before.

 

Just wanted to clarify.   As to everything else, carry on...    sorry to interrupt.

So mock drafts at this time of year are fun, but shouldnt be taken with any level of seriousness. We haven't had any type of pro days, and free agency doesn't start for another week. Two weeks before the draft is the optimal time for mocks.

Are you talking about this Forum mocks or National mocks?

 

Anyway, most of the mocks are very similar:

Mock1

Rd.1- LT

Rd.2- Edge

Rd.4- CB

 

Mock 2

Rd.1-Edge

Rd.2-T

Rd.4-WR

 

And let's not forget about trading back to recoup a draft pick to make up for the Wentz trade. 

haha

Pundits as far as my recollection has always referred to the media folks.....wow, a lot of folks in an uproar over nothing!

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!

I saw a mock today that had us drafting Trevon Moehrig-Woodard out of TCU who is arguably the best Safety in the draft. Safety is not one of our needs. Mock drafts are fun and all, but they're just that!! For you to be a pretend GM.

    • I'm happy to indifferent with FA. Obviously, we have to pay our guys. One thing I would of done differently is not sign Hilton, and allocate that money towards an EDGE rusher. Of course, we could always sign Houston back still before the draft, but I'm not fully expecting it. Wouldn't be surprised if that's the plan at this point though, and we mostly go with last years team, replace Rivers with Wentz, minus Autry and Walker, and draft some new players to fill the weaknesses.    In any case, I love the draft, and expect us to gain a couple extra picks at some point. Ballard won't just go with 6 total picks. That's not his forte.
    • When I saw the Carson Wentz trade go down, and the compensation we gave up, I paid attention to the Bears more than any non-Colts team. They were in a similar situation as us team-wise, draft-pick wise (20th pick to 21st pick), and we both had interest in Wentz. After we got him, you saw the Bears were immediately helpless. Wentz was gone, no solid QBs left in FA, the Wilson trade fell through, and they had to sign Andy Dalton. That could be us.   We got Wentz for peanuts considering we are picking 21st and didn't have to give up our 1st and/or 2nd rounder this year. If Wentz gets hurt, we have a bit of insurance from losing our 1st rounder in 2022. That's the best move of 2021 so far. If you don't believe me, look at the Bears forums and how they reacted when they signed Dalton instead of trading for Wilson. They wish they were the Colts right now.
    • 4200 yards passing 35 TDs 15 INTs 65% completion rate 11-5 record
    • This is my 1st attempt at one of these so far, and I have little information right now, but I'll try and do the best I can. Hoping to crank out 3 of these by the time the draft begins on the 29th.   Round 1.) Kwity Paye, EDGE, Michigan- I realize we need a LT very badly. However, I believe Darrisaw will go before 21, and Teven Jenkins is more of a RT than a LT. That's why we choose Paye in the 1st. He is by far the best EDGE in the class to me, fits the scheme from what I've seen, and can start immediately on a team that is extremely weak at the position after missing out on re-signing Autry and possibly Houston.    Round 2.) Liam Eichenberg, OT, Notre Dame- He may or may not fall to us in the 2nd round, but there will be a OT or two that does fall, and I'll assume for the sake of this mock draft, that he's the guy who falls to us. Eichenberg is solid at everything, just not great. He reminds me of Anthony Costanzo and I think he can start right away for us at LT. This would solidify the line for a long time after we paid Braden and Quenton.   Round 4.) Monty Rice, ILB, Georgia- I haven't studied him a lot yet, but I think he'd make a very good Anthony Walker replacement in the LBer group. EJ Speed and Glasgow aren't good enough to start behind Okereke IMO or start if he goes down due to injury, so that's where Monty Rice comes in.   Round 5.) Bobby Brown, DT, Texas A&M- Excellent run defender that plays well in a 4-3 defense. Very solid scheme fit that can possibly get playing time on running downs. Only downside is he's not a 3 down player, but with Buckner and Grover starting, it really shouldn't matter.   Round 6.) Rachad Wildgoose, CB, Wisconsin- He is more of a slot corner than anything else, but he can play any scheme. Only played two games last year due to injury, but that's why he fell. Very intelligent player that has room to improve, and with Rhodes and Carrie under 1 year contracts, they'll be no pressure during his first year for him.   Round 7.) Dax Milne, WR, BYU- Dax can play in any scheme and can also play special teams. Solid route runner who can catch the ball. He's very quick and can make big plays.   Let me know what you think below!
