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!

He said pundits so I do think he is referring to us. Haha

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.

    • Apparently it's a two year deal for Fisher, however the second year can be voided by the colts.
    • Age and health would be the argument for Smith and Leonard right now.  It’s not all about position.
    • It is my understanding the Colts grade every player on every pay.  Their has to be a method.  It was my understanding, i don't KNOW, that more teams than not subscribe to PFF, for their own reasons. Perhaps they too snark at their numbers.    The story i recently read/heard about a fumble recovery for a touchdown turned one DE's weekly grade from the 60's to near 90, well, that is very concerning if true.  The best way to see if someone is any good was back when i watched every Colts play in super slow-mo, sometimes frame by frame to see what really happened. Unfortunately i couldn't compliment that with all-22.  AC looked BAD for his 1st 3 seasons in pass-pro, and Andrew was terrible with timing and accuracy in the short game. Based on Harbaugh's pre-draft hype, and others of course "not since Elway," that part of his game disgusted me.  PFF can't reflect how much benefit or damage is done by the overall effectiveness of those around you, or good or bad coaching. Ras isn't everything but is a very solid place to start.
    • Nate only missed 1 kick in the Divisional round loss against the Patriots, it was a what would've been a then career long 54 yarder when he was rushed on to the field to attempt it as time was expiring due to the Chargers having burned all their timeouts. Had he made that kick, it would've only tied the game, not given San Diego the lead or win. He converted all 3 of his extra point attempts in that game.   He was brutal in the 2009 Divisional round loss to the Jets, he had only missed 3 kicks all season and missed 3 in that game alone, although one of them was a  57 yard attempt that would've tied his career long. He had already missed a 36 yarder and that Bolts were up 7-0 when Norv trotted him out to attempt that long one at the end of the half, and that miss combined with the earlier one seemed to scramble his eggs. Later in the game while down by 10, he badly missed a 40 yard attempt and although the Chargers got another touchdown, they ended up losing by 3.    He missed when he hit the upright from 48 yards out in the 2007 Divisional round victory at Indy and in the only AFCCG he played in, Kaeding accounted for all 12 of the Chargers' points by going 4 for 4 against the undefeated Patriots in the snow flurries at Foxboro.
    • You're probably right.  But a franchise LT is the more important position.  More than RT, and even an All Pro LB.   I'm not saying he'll sacrifice either of them in order to sign Fisher long term.  But I think that once they see that Fisher can play, they'll want to wrap him up long term.  He won't be cheap either.   I think it was on one of the podcast they pointed out where all of the LTs for the playoff teams were drafted.  Getting one that works out past the first round is pretty rare.  And we probably won't even have a first rounder next year.
