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

    • Im a bit curious on some thoughts about our big bodies. Do you all think it is absolutley necessary that these guys can nail every route on the tree? From what I gather its mostly about that. Would think having the size advabtage could negate some of that. Isnt that kinda the point? Contested or arrant throws happen on the perfect ran routes also. Seems we have a bit of trouble getting these guys on the field and producing.
    • I just watched the only tape available on Strachan online - vs West Virginia State. To be fair this seems like it was his worst game of the season, but he didn't impress me much. The CBs that cover him seem tiny and he cannot beat their press-man off the LOS. He gets jammed and his routes interrupted by physically playing defenders. There are several cases where he beats press-man, but it's mostly because of his superior athleticism rather than skill. He is a willing and physical blocker. Runs very limited route tree(mostly go routes and slants). He had some success on the move when he could release uninterrupted and the defender didn't have a chance to put his hands on him, but overall I would say he seems like a serious project.  Right now I cannot see him getting on an NFL roster. IMO it's very likely Ballard will try to sneak him on the practice squad unless he takes a big stept this off-season.     From his highlights tape - he seems pretty athletic against that competition. He does outrun defenders. He has good ballskils - tracks the ball well, catches it securely outside his frame, fights for it and attacks it in the air. You can see the appeal. I just am not sure he will ever be able to beat press-man and get open against NFL level defenders. People above compared him to DK Metcalf but Metcalf is a monster against press-man. He doesn't let defenders put a hand on him... he just overwhelms them with physicality and when they don't try to jam him, he is fast enough to outrun them.    My prediction for him is PS in 2021. 
    • Colts and Vikings family mothers.   @Nadine @NFLfan @DEColtsLover36 @Wentzszn     I know there are more, hope you have a great day, come claim your flowers.  
    • They are trying on the LT spot   I think CB gets the problem   I highly doubt that Tevi is considered the answer
    • I watched an interview of Strachan completed before the draft, posted on youtube last week and he claimed that he has run the 40 in high 4.3's and that the pro day 40 was slow for him.      He was an adult playing against 10 years old on the field.  He has a measured 85 inch wingspan   He is a cocky  confident guy....... comparing himself to Megatron and expecting that he would be picked in the first few rounds   Patmon has been working hard this offseason, and has some speed that Pascal doesnt have   I hope that Strachan puts in the work, we will have some nice competition at the WR spot   I want to see what they look like in pre season
