@danlhart87 If you have Houston returning, is he playing on the strong side or weak side?

I think he has the ability to play both. Correct me if I'm wrong but doesn't he play Weak usually?

That would be nice, but I'm not counting on it. 

Hopefully the FO put him on a very specific off season regiment with some good technique and S&C coaches.

Really wish we could have gotten another CB in free agency.. that group scares me

I think Ballard is going CB, no later than RD #2.

Yes, that is why I asked, as you have Turay playing strong.

 

 

This is just my opinion, but wouldn't a rotation of Houston and Turay on the weak side and a rotation of Lewis and Rochell/Banogu(sp?)  with Muhammad floating make more sense?  If possible of course?

I like Horn Melifonwu and Joseph there

 

Also consider Trill Williams on Day 3

Horn isn’t a first round corner?    The kid from South Carolina?

J. Horn is definitely a 1st CB and most likely goes before 21. The others listed, are CB’s I like outside of 1st Rd, consideration. I think there a lot of good 2CB’s in this draft.

I think he lands in Arizona

Why?

He fits Colts system perfectly 

He's incredibly raw, he's one of the DEs in the class that has no clue what he's doing on the field and he's got extremely average traits

I think Ballard goes after CB Round 2 or 4

Can’t see it in round 2. Remember that Tell is lurking there as a potential starter and they like him. The greater needs are the obvious ones: Edge, LT, TE. I see a CB in Day 3, along with S, WR, and DT.

That’s accurate and scary, but not in a good way.  Definitely worse than last season. Even the depth is worse.  
 

I don’t expect it to be resolved in the draft, but there better be some upgrades from there and more FA’s.  
 

Our best defense (at least as it stands right now) is going to be a clock controlling offense that wears their defense out.

I'm afraid our D breaks a lot this year like the did second half last year. If that's the case, our O will have to take a major step forward, or at least be more dynamic.

I think that Tell and Rodgers add considerable depth already. Rodgers performed extremely well when given the chance to play and the hope is that Tell can make a major leap.

Lurking. Not sure I want to put my hopes on someone who is lurking. Lol. Not trying o offend just had a visual. I think they have to invest a high pic in a corner. Roades has a year left and Yin is not the answer. Tell is a 5th rounder I believe. Time for a man corner

    • I agree with this completely. No one piece of information or datum is definitive, PFF grades included. The grades tell you (reasonably) exactly how a guy played, but they can't possibly provide context to indicate why he played that way.   I do think that you can apply context to contextless PFF grades though. To take your example: you see a guy getting a low PFF grade over the course of a month, or even a season, and you can take it with a pinch of salt because you know he was banged up all month or all year.   For me, I watch every snap of every Colts game every year. The number of full games I watch per season beyond that is probably in the single digits though. I imagine this applies to most fans and most fan bases. PFF watch every snap of every game every year but a lot of people still seem to value their own opinions on players over PFF's. For the reasons you stated, PFF's grades aren't perfect or definitive, but they're a hell of a lot more representative than the average fan's opinion.
    • Well like Ballard said they need to see if Fisher can come back from this injury before the extend him.  Leonard and Smith don’t have that question mark right now.  That’s why I expect their extensions done around the same time Kelly’s was last year where as Fisher will wait.  
    • No doubt.  I'm not saying they won't sign them.  I'm just saying that getting a franchise LT is more important.   You're right, they have to take into account how many years Fisher can play at a high level.  We were so lucky with AC.
    • The Colts reporters seem to believe this move is just to push hot rod and don’t seem to think he’s in real danger of losing his job but camp and pre-season can change things.  
    • Apparently it's a two year deal for Fisher, however the second year can be voided by the colts.
