Have a bold prediction that you want to say that will most likely look very stupid in a short time? But hey, you can get one right and pat yourself on the back.

 

 

1. Mac Jones is drafted by SF and finishes as best QB in 2021 class

 

2. Ballard takes a LB Day 2 and people lose their minds

 

3. No Defensive player is drafted until 11th 

 

4. Some team trades up late 1st for Kellen Mond

 

5. Caleb Farley falls out of the 1st Round

Zaven Collins is an amazing long LB that would shine in this defense. (Would replace Okereke)

 

I HOPE it doesnt happen, but if the Colts go LB..... with an earlier pick ... I hope its him

1. Greg Newsome is the 2nd best CB in this draft

2. Rashod Bateman is the 2nd best WR in this class

3. There's only two starter worthy DEs in this draft

4. Colts don't (and shouldn't) go OT in R1

Gotta be Surtain and Chase. They are easily the best two at their positions.     Newsome over Horn is interesting.   

I know his CB is Farley

Not sure how Bold  some are. 

Schefter predicted SF will draft Mac Jones, and if he goes to SF, that's a extremely good situation.  Some say they are a SB team. So statistically speaking, a rookie QB can have best stats in his class in year 1 in SF.

 

We lost Walker,  so replacing  him early is not so far fetched.

You know very well though lots of people wouldn't be happy if they drafted LB high but I wouldn't be upset

Chase and Farley

I personally think best WR will be Smith and best CB Horn but what do I know 

 

Farley falling might be good and put him on playoff team

True, cause the 'narrative' here is Edge & LT or LT & Edge in rounds 1 & 2 and ABSOLUTELY NOTHING ELSE. 

But the fact is, and I posted it before, pigeonholing picks for certain positions is not good drafting.

Just because we draft a Edge early doesn't solve our need for a impactful Edge if the player lacks the necessary talent.

BPA is the way to go, and since we have so many needs(LT,Edge,WR,TE,CB,LB), the BPA will highly most likely FILL A NEED.

....Ballard trades out of the 2021 First Round.

Interesting how far you thinking he trades down

I predict, that peeps will make predictions, that most likely won't come true.

 

Yup, like most every mock draft (especially those without trades) scenario that gets posted.

 

People tend to get (most of) the 'players' in round 1 and 2 right, just not draft slot/position or team with accuracy.  Thus Dr. T's annual draft thread posted here.

 

EDIT: I still like seeing people post those mock drafts (especially full ones) anyway.

I don't really know and haven't looked at trade chart AND who the trade partner may be.

But..... we don't know what financial impact covid has had and will have this year for teams and more importantly Irsay.

First round picks require more signing bonus money, so trading out of first may help financially. 

Ballard likes picks, and we traded away our 2021 3rd and most likely our 2022 1st. So what would we get back if we traded our 2021 1st besides a 2022 1st??? 

I haven't looked at value chart so I'm guessing a additional 2021 3rd at the least, maybe a 2nd in this years along with a first in 2022?

 

If it's just a more traditional trade down , I would guess early/mid 2nd would be the the furthest down.

Maybe we can do what we did with Washington trade down to Eagles for 21 2nd and 22 2nd which ends up being high second in 22

Maybe.... and I would think that trading a 2021 1st will get us a 2022 1st PLUS a additional high pick in 2021 or 2022?

That would help recoup what we lost in the Wentz trade and ease some of the lower revenue because of covid.

no team will give up a 22 1st unfortunately

We can only hope a team is dumb enough to offer that 

 

There are a lot of factors involved, but generally speaking, I believe,  a 2021 2nd round pick has the same value as a 2022 1st round pick..... so our 2021 1st round pick should be worth a 2022 1st round pick and additional pick(s). 

 

But it takes 2 to tango and Ballard and another GM both need to be willing.

Why is that?

He isnt a bad player, just not enough big plays

 

As Buckeye fan we have had some dominant LBs over the past 

 

He isnt one of them

I actually could see 4 coming true. Just with the way teams are for the 5th year and after his Pro Day teams were interested that he did his own script

    • I was having similar thoughts a while ago - how can we have so much money tied in the OL and isn't this detrimental to the team? The more I've been thinking about it the more I feel like... it's all about allocation of resources. Every team has limited resources and if you allocate too much resources to one area you might be hitting the point of diminishing returns. For example... would you rather pay 40% of your cap on the no. 1 OL in the league or 30% on the no. 5 OL in the league? And where is the cut off where it all becomes excessive spending that can be used better elsewhere on the roster? But also... we have to account for draft picks in our considerations, too.   This is really the main couple of resources for acquiring talent - cap space and draft picks . It's interesting that they are almost completely decoupled, too ... meaning - for huge majority of draft picks, the cap spent is minuscule and doesn't impact the cap space much and at the same time for the biggest of our cap spendings we don't spend draft resources(Buckner and Q being the exceptions here). It's also important to not count it twice once the draft picks enter their second contract. At least I don't ... so... in essence it becomes - cap space + RECENT draft picks(still on rookie contracts)....   In essence my position has been ammended to something along the lines of - I don't care what % of the money we spend on specific position group as long as there is enough resources (this might include draft picks) spent on most other important positions. Example -   - QB - we spent 1st, 3d and 25M a year for QB. This is plenty IMO. People seem to consider it cheap but it is NOT cheap when you account for BOTH the picks and the money. If Wentz gets back to his previous form with us, I am good with it. I think it's worth it having that type of QB. - EDGE group - no big money spent, but pretty big draft resources - currently 1st round pick, 3 second round picks.. - Interior pass-rush - big money, big resources (22M a year for Buckner, 10M a year for Grover, 1st for Buckner). - OL - good mix of money and draft resources (Fisher 10M, Kelly 12M, Glowinski 6M + 1st + 2nd on Q and Braden)... now if you have to replace the 1st and 2nd from Braden with big money you will need to spend some picks rather than money on other positions and this is exactly what we did with EDGE - shuffled around the resources spent from money(Autry, Houston) to draft picks - Paye, Odeyingbo - CB - this IMO is the group that is in a holding pattern... I don't know where we will go with it, because we have some pick investments, but they are to a huge degree question marks and Kenny is our only CB with somewhat big(still not huge though) contract past this year. IMO Ballard is waiting on them(Rock, Tell, Rodgers) to show him something either way and we are very likely to address it next year. BTW I have not watched next year's CBs, but the PFF guys seem to think next year's CB class is very good... probably too ealry to tell at this point but worth keeping in mind. I wonder if Ballard looks ahead to future drafts...  - WR - good, not great resources spent - 2 2nd round pick + short term deal for TY... another position in holding pattern.    So I guess my general position is - As long as the roster overall has good talent at other positions be it through bargain FA contracts that hit or through draft picks, I'm good with us splurging a bit on a specific area of the team that we consider important. In general I feel like our resources have been spent relatively well, with some minor gripes here and there, but even for them there IMO is a good reason.   
    • I hadn't though about it much, but the LB position isn't robust beyond Darrius.  It'll be a thing at some point, bank on it.
    • It will be fun to be on the winning side of that equation!  I remember Manning's face on the sidelines while the opponent ran it down the Colts throat.
    • What did you win?   I'm guessing your sleeper is Luck coming back.  (BTW, I don't think I'd go with Hot Rod this time)
