I truly hope the interest in Darrisaw is real and that Ballard and company have a high priority in drafting him. I think playing next to Quenton could make Darrisaw potentially the next Trent Williams type LT. 

I would assume it is if he lasts long enough, but some teams before us need tackle too, which may cause a run and which I cant imagine us moving up enough. I am betting more likely to trade back and draft Cosmi in late round 1.

This is probably the start of many LT's we are going to be linked to as the draft gets nearer.  

With the 21st pick in the NFL Draft the Indianapolis Colts select um what's this.. 

 

It appears Colts have found a way to fuse all the best features of every OT into 1 

 

WHAT IS THAT THING!!!!???!!!

I would love this pick and jump for joy but he will be gone by the time we pick. I think he and Slater both will be gone. That leaves Cosmi at #21 if we really want a true LT and go that way. Sewell is top 5 material of course.

One thing I know about Darrisaw is that him and Quenton Nelson will get on just fine beside each other lol

 

 

I love it. You have to have that mentality as an offensive lineman . Play till after the whistle and assert your dominance a little. Sit on em and let them know you’re coming every single play.

We'd have to jump up to at least the 15th pick, most likely the 12th. We don't have a 3rd, so would we trade up from 21 to 15 and give up a second? I wouldn't, we're going to have a quality player at a position of need fall to us at 21..

Great talent

 

I would love for him to be there at 21. 

 

From the many mocks he is gone in the teens.

 

Many folks have him going to Chargers as they have a weak spot at LT

 

I think this "love" is due diligence at an extreme position of need

 

The Colts are doing their homework, spending a great deal of time, on all the top LTs

 

Last week it was Jenkins, the week before they were sending the scouts and coaches to see Eich. 

 

Who knows what they will do.....

 

They will probably draft a KICKER  :)

I like Darrisaw the most if he was there at 21. I just do not see it happening. This guy improved each and every year and showed solid form at LT last year. I see Slater, Sewell, and then Darrisaw in the first half of the first round.

They went to see Eichenberg but their true target was Tommy Tremble. They went to see Jenkins but their true target was Tylan Wallace. haha

He might go in a range that would allow us to trade up a little. I guess it all depends how much the colts like him and how much they like the other prospects at LT. 
 

There is a couple vets out there we might be able to sign after the draft if some players fall and we don’t take a tackle.

He is pretty much my dream pick at 21 but I don't see any chance he falls that far unless a video surfaces of him hitting a bong through a gas mask. 

Then we can trade him for 4 1st rounders

    • His breakout game came against the Eagles mid way through his rookie season.  Indy was a big underdog that day and killed the Eagles in Philly. 
    • For those that didn't see it, here's the exclusionary flow chart of the surgeries from 1958 - 2016       I count two studies (one with 95 cases, the other with 80, one of which Dr.Parekh was involved in) having a nearly identical average of a 72.5% return to sport rate-   "One previous study investigated RTS and postoperative performance for players who underwent Achilles tendon repair in the NFL. The prior study demonstrated an RTS of 72.5% in 80 NFL athletes. The RTS from this prior study is nearly identical to the results of the present study with an RTS of 72.4% in 95 NFL athletes." "Following Achilles tendon repair, less than 75% of players returned to the NFL. Postoperative career length was 1 season shorter than matched controls. No difference was observed in the number of games per season played com-pared to matched controls. Postoperative performance scores were significantly worse for RBs and LBs compared to preoperative, and LBs had significantly worse postoperative performance when compared to matched controls."   and the very small PARS mini open study at 78%.   I see a trend of some surgeons trying to move from open technique to a limited or mini-open technique (as opposed to a pure percutaneous repair).   Dr. Purekh:   “but the problem with a pure percutaneous solution is that you can’t see anything, so you can actually pierce the nerve.” The miniature-open technique requires only a 3 cm incision while the traditional approach of surgically treating Achilles tendon ruptures required an 8 cm to 12 cm incision. “One of the biggest issues with the traditional model was long-term immobilization, and there was about an 8% to 10% chance of an infection or wound healing problem,” he notes. “The benefit of doing the mini-open technique is that your incisions are much smaller, so your wound complication rate postoperatively is under 1% or 0.5%."   This minimally invasive miniature-open technique is heavily dependent on special tools (PARS Achilles Jig System by Anthrex, Inc.: Naples, FL; Achillon Achilles Tendon Suture System by Integra LifeSciences Corp.: Plainsboro, NJ), and can add in costs up to $800 to 1,000 per use.   Dr. Selene G. Parekh, of Duke University, has pioneered a minimally invasive mini-open technique that does not use specialized equipment, and has adapted the miniature-open technique to require only standard operating room tools, such as surgical clamps and forceps, etc. to be able to grab the Achilles tendon and pass suture.   “You don't have to worry about a special instrument lining up properly in order to grab the tendon, so the whole procedure now takes about 20 to 30 minutes whereas traditionally it took 45 minutes to an hour,” he says.   While mini-open repair is available at Duke (and elsewhere), only Dr. Parekh is performing Achilles repair via this new technique without the need of special instruments.  I'm interested to see what types of improved outcomes become apparent besides the time and cost savings up front.      
    • What did I say?  What did I say?  Didn't I say it was bad luck to change your number?  And it's not like your already behind the eight ball, being from Ohio State.  OMG.  *facepalm*
