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.

My Bold Prediction is...........

....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

    • There is no way in hell they do that. They are extending the schedule to get more of a TV presence so they can get more of a piece of the pie. I mean talk about this new TV deal, why you think the owners almost unanimously voted for the extended schedule? More money and the bottom line. You will never see the bye week go away.
    • Yup, basically a nit. A nit that should be easy to look at and fix, but not something I'll ever point to.  I disagree. It can be balanced. I would agree if this was 20 years ago. Shared arenas is a small thing IMO. Other events could actually be managed easier if there was a systemic logic and expectation. TV obligations to the networks would be stable.    Off topic, but I've flown a decent amount to away games, and also to concerts at arenas or other events at NFL stadiums. If you're going to allow flex games (getting more and more the norm after week 4), you're not really worried about all that. Not looking for a deep dive. I thought you were out in AZ and might have a surface opinion on adding Green, Watt, Collins, Moore, Butler, etc. 
    • Discussed a lot in many other threads already...    But, IMO, worth discussing if the topic if it's about Indy's willingness to roll the dice on injuries in general.   Fisher - big gamble on a huge position of need. Early schedule could be ugly if Tevi has to start the first month. Huge gamble.   Dayo - good value in the 2nd. Young and should heal. It's a long term play, one that I'm not sure we should have taken given other needs. Good gamble.   Mack - pretty easy decision IMO. Cheap, and short term. Any production will be great. Good loyalty sign to set him with another team in 2022. If he heals well, he'll be a fantastic RB2. Almost zero risk and lots of upside. No risk gamble. 
    • The bolded is basically my opinion. Good way of putting it.    Edit: Structured scheduling is gonna be really hard. Shared arenas, other events scheduled, TV obligations, etc.    I'll get back to you on AZ.
    • I think what it boils down to, is that there is a significant number of teams that get to enjoy that advantage of being rested over a team that is not. While the Colts have not enjoyed that benefit.    Essentially, the other teams in our division and conference could get +1 for a better % chance of winning their game off a bye.   That probably reads even more confusing, and if so I apologize. It's May, which in teaching terms means my mind is quite nearly a puddle on the floor.
