For me,  he's the only LB that I'd feel comfortable with in the first round.    Maybe even the first 3-4 rounds.

 

He's just that good.    If you believe in BPA,  JOK fits that description.    Our LB corp would be faaaassst!

 

I'd prefer we not do this.   I think LB is no higher than our 6th most pressing need.   But I don't think I'd hate this.

 

If he's there when we pick, I think we'd certainly consider it,  or perhaps trade down depending on who else is available.

I think he would be day 1 starter at LB and in certain spots could play S

I agree....

 

Except I believe we're looking to play less 4-3 and more 4-2-5 or even 4-1-6 defensively.

 

That leaves good people standing on the sidelines.     Not sure I want to use pick 21 on a player who might not be playing 95% of our snaps.

Hes a swiss army knife so could be shifted around in many different ways. Could ultimately help this D.

Yeah. I love the idea of having another fassssst playmaker on the D. He's one of a handful of guys, if they slipped, that I'd be happy taking over a Tackle or DE. 

Owusu-koroamoa, Micah Parsons, Devonte Smith (if his weight makes him drop) ... those guys seem special. Parsons' off-field stuff would have to be thoroughly looked at, but ...

The 2 other guys you mentioned will most likely go top 15

With how you have this draft laid out. This would be a fantastic pic!!!!   Although Bateman and maybe further back Newsome would also be there.   But!   I would have no issues with this.

 

Ballard likes the front 7.     This would certainly bolster that group!

 

 

FWIW.  I misspelled bolster about 5 times now I'm not even sure its a word

He fills a void left by Walker

Glad people here are open to the idea

If that is truly the case, Azeez Ojulari has to be in play at No.21 then, IMO.

I agree.  He is the only 1st round ILB by a far stretch. And maybe when you figure in value and need the only in the 1st 3-4 rounds.

How so?

 

Ojulari has both 2 point and 3 point stance experience, Teams that play multiple fronts will love him and I see a lot of Robert Mathis in him, he is about the same height and weight like when Mathis was drafted. That is my take at least. :)

I thought he was projected specifically as a 34 but I'm probably wrong

No, he is primarily projected as a pass rush specialist for a team that plays multiple fronts, teams like the Ravens, Dolphins, and to an extent the Bucs and Titans too. However, they said the same about Jerry Hughes too, and same with Robert Mathis, because of lack of bulk that they would end up playing as a 3-4 OLB but we all know what happened.

Why would thus make Ojulari more in play?   Sorry, I don’t follow?

 

I don’t see him as a DE, or as a 4-3 OLB.   I see him as a 3-4 OLB.

For what it’s worth.   I don’t think he’d be an inside LB for the Colts.  I think he’d be an OLB,  with Okereke in the middle.

I am gonna disagree only to an extent.   You could be right. but he may be the best cover LB in the draft and that bodes well at MLB for this D

In the passing game, his football instincts help put him in a position to make plays. His experience of playing the safety position is demonstrated by multiple pass breakups. It isn’t a stretch to say that he has the best coverage skills of any linebacker in this class.

Yes he would.    I can also see the argument that the "value" would be better in this scenario to take Newsome.  Like NCF said Oke would play Mike so it could add another playmaker at another position.

I may be over thinking but!!!!   I think Horn is the next Revis.    Which I think maybe the best CB of our generation.    Rod Woodson (my boy).  Is right there.  # Dione

    • Here is the video of his interview from youtube.    
    • As for my grade...I think C to C+ is fair. Getting Paye has more overall weight, otherwise I might have been really harsh.   Draft success can be so largely contingent on draft capital. And considering they had a total of (11) Day 2 picks the previous three drafts (9 of which were 2nd rounders)...they had a such a larger margin for error those years.   Not the case this year...and wasn’t really the case in 2017.    Here are my grades:   Paye: A Dayo: D  Granson: C Davis: B Ehlinger: D Strachan: C Fries: C   Davis seems like a decent S depth pick, but I don’t really see the value in the other late picks either. But like you said, I won’t lose sleep over it.   But I have so much cognitive dissonance on Dayo. You see the traits on tape but then do research on Achilles injuries...and I can’t get past it. It’s one thing if you are a vet OT like Fisher, but Dayo’s game is predicated on his athletic traits. Many players do not return to that level.   I do like Paye. But if he doesn’t hit...this could be a Grigson-esque draft in a few years.
    • You guys better make this call a thing when Dayo (and the fans) return to the stadium...   
    • Interesting stuff there. Trey Lance from everything we have heard is a really great kid. He really lights up a room when he does interviews.
    • You and I had discussed that we couldn't figure out what the Colts were trying to do with their personnel.  With this draft, it appears they are trying to run like hockey shift changes with Dlinemen ala San Francisco.   I don't think either one of these guys projects to be a big pass rusher, but both appear to me to me a Jadeveon Clowney type of edge setter and double team takers.  Clowney is a good player.     I agree with you on the Paye and Dayo picks as far as being  year 3 types, hopefully contributors.   I don't see us being better this year.  Paye cannot replace Houston and Autry, and the other guy probably won't be a significant contributor.    I am fine with the LT thing.  I don't think the team could afford to invest too much more draft capital or salary in the Oline.   I still think we need a big weapon on O in the passing game.  I don't think any of our guys can fill this primary, alpha receiver type of role.   The potential problem with this draft IMO, is by the time Paye and Day potentially become studs, we will be paying out the nose on LG and Will, and will still be looking for contributers in key positions.   I think Ballard has done a great job making us competitive, but so far I don't see us rising from 2nd tier team to a 1st tier team unless Wentz is way better than PR.  They will much to your pleasure open up the play book with CW.  Hope it works out.
