If we find the right rookie, yes.  Rookies play every year.  Get the right one, coach them up and put them out there.  

You know who protected the winning Super Bowl QB of the Tampa Bay Bucs this year?  The QB who is the G.O.A.T. at the position?  A rookie.  Tristin Wirfs was the 4th tackle taken in the 2020 draft and

Eichenberg Cosmi or Radunz 

I would like to see them draft Walker Little from Stanford. Currently a little bit under the radar for now but I think a great prospect for us and I think a Ballard type of pick.   Sort of under the radar as Leonard was.  Use the cap space on ER and WR1.

I'd be bouncing off the walls happy if we somehow landed Slater, (small chance I know...). I think our OT and Edge correlate with each other. If we get one in the FA, we'll get the other in the draft.

Eichenberg or Walker Little are the two I've felt should be in our range.  Eichenberg when we pick in the 2nd.  Walker Little is the wildcard though.  I really like that kid.

Kelly already got paid

Smith and Q are going to get paid

 

We need a LT on a rookie contract

If we can get one of the top OTs, then yes. However, I'd be fine if we got a proven talent in the FA and then used our draft to get an edge.

We need to do the opposite 

Veteran Edge

Rookie OT

True. But we have a window. With a little nudge we will dominate. Williams. IMHO. I just wish Eberflus was more aggressive. AND draft the future LT.

All depends on how the draft falls.. if one of the edge guys falls - Paye, Rousseau - then Colts go Edge and sign a LT.. if Darrisaw or Slater (doubtful) fall, then they grab one.

 

I’d be surprised if 2 of the 4 are available at 21

I absolutely agree, although Walker wasn't under the radar like Leonard. He was a former 5 star recruit that played at Stanford and was viewed as a potential top 5 pick until he got injured. He's more "forgotten" than under the radar". With his time away from the game (he also opted out last year), I don't feel comfortable slotting him as our starter initially. I'd rather bring in a solid vet like Villanueva on a 2 year deal and let Little learn and get acclimated behind him.

What I wish is Nelson moves to LT kills it, and we can give him LT money without hesitation.

 

What I expect is a rookie at LT possibly Eichenberg or Cosmi

Why would you take the best guard in the NFL and make him change position. I see no upside to that.

We have a very small crack of a window. I don't expect this team to be a contender and I think they will step back a couple of games this year. LT is the next hardest position to fill in the NFL. There is no guarantee you get a good one in the draft or as a free agent. I don't think Ballard will pay the price for a good free agent LT.

Well if he thrives you have a great LT, but mostly it's due to his next contract. I don't want to pay LT money to a guard, as you can argue the guard position is the 3rd or 4th most important offensive line position behind LT, Center, and maybe RT.

 

look at Zack Martin he used to be the best guard in the league but when the tackles got hurt the OL became terrible, because DEs ate Dak alive.

I think Ballard will bring a vet LT, and draft the furture as well. My fav is Walker Little, he talked to his coach and his coach told him he has enough tape out there. And with all the unknowns of this past season(covid) he would be better off sending that extra time preparing for the NFL. Which is where he has been since training and preparing for the combine(pro days). I beleive his time spent on technique and getting his body in pro shape wont go unnoticed by alot of teams

No one is eating Big Q alive as a guard. Putting him in as a LT might get him hurt. I don't care what we pay him, he is the heart and soul of that whole line. Pay the man and find a LT.

That's the problem, Zach Martin didn't get eaten alive, the tackles did. You also should care what we pay him because it affects the rest of the roster. I think they should experiment with him at LT, he may transfer well into the position. At the very least they should discuss it with him.

I think moving Q to LT is a WCS situation! If they leave FA and Draft without a clear cut front runner at LT then Q will move.

Nelson , put best player at his natural position of LT where he has always played before college and let him excel and protect your QB and anchor the line

Who do you put at LG then

Currently I would put Pittner though drafting a Guard later in draft depending how it falls. Also would love to see Smith moved to LG and form a super combo which I dont think any squad could really stop (Smith was seen as a more natural Guard than Tackle duo to short arms but like Q I think could excel anywhere) in which case I move Will Holden into the RT spot.

Moving Pinter there adds more depth problems. Its an easy fix sure but backup LT and LG beyond Q and Pinter becomes a ?

I guess how I see it if Nelson moves to LT and is a top 10 LT instead of the best guard. I'm good with that trade off, Then draft a guard. But like I said below this is a wish not what I expect.

Ballard better be 100% confident in the move! Id rather draft LT and have Q help him at LG.

They would have to talk to Nelson but if he was confident in moving, I think he would excel

    • 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.
