Colts trade there 21 to Miami for both 2nds. They pick up Cosmi and Eichenberg. Still have there later 2nd to pick a good DE.

What other picks would we lose to make this trade?

If this can happen and both OTs pay off this could drop Smith to RG. Q, Kelley and Smith working the interior.

Potential OL of Cosmi, Q, Kelley, Smith and Eichenberg.

What would be a good DE with our late 2nd round pick.

I think I would side with the others as far as taking two LTs. Maybe a LT early and a late LT, but not two in round 2

 

However, I was looking at it and Ballard has traded 3-4 or more times before or during the draft each year.

 

He will PROBABLY try to swing a deal (or two) this year as well

 

Not a likely reality.....  but

 

For the trade piece, I actually think you might have something (I doubt the Dolphins would do it)

 

If We traded with Miami for these 2 second round picks Giving us three in the 2nd round

(Miami loses a bit on the transaction, but its close) 

 

I would ONLY trade if Paye and Darrisaw were off the board

 

With our first pick (36)

 

Pick the best of what is left of Cosmi, Eich, or Radunz 

 

With our 2nd pick (50)

 

Pick the best of what is left of Basham, Tryon, Perkins, or my favorite, Turner

 

With our 3rd pick  (54)

 

Pick the best of what is left of Ifeatu, Stokes, or Cambell

 

 

We could pick up 3 players that would probably BPA or close to BPA, in positions of need

 

We would have a LT to develop

 

We would have a LDE to develop

 

We would have a decent CB to develop

 

All three could see the field early

 

 

Just dream'n though.....

Phins would do it, but we'd have to throw in our 4th rounder.. With the depth of OT this year that would work, with the depth of WR that would work as well. DE would be another animal..

I think there's a good chance Ballard will trade back, again, but doubt it would be for 2 OT's.

And just want to say to everyone there are other positions on team besides LT & DE. And the other positions are also needs as well.  :D

For what it’s worth...   the Colts trade with Miami for their two seconds, is such a lop-sided win for the Colts it’s hard to see why Miami would do it?

 

Our pick 21 is worth 800 points.  Their two second round picks total 940 points. (540/400).  That 140 point gap is enormous.   We’d owe them a 3 (that we don’t have) to even make it close. 
 

I’m hoping we can trade down 8-10 picks and get a 3 from some team.    Hoping....

I'm thinking the Chiefs or Packers would do it. Packers could go after Newsome, Farley, Toney, or Bateman at 21. Chiefs could go after an O-Lineman at 21. Especially if Teven Jenkins made it to us. I'd hate to lose him, but he's more of a RT anyway, so I'd trade down in a heartbeat to get a 3rd. Might even get a day 3 pick next year as well from the Chiefs.

I really like that and tried something similar in in PFF's simulator. :scoregood:

 

I'd rather go WR or TE with the 3rd pick though and pick up a promising CB later, but, I confess, I don't value CB very much so that's probably just me. :default_20smile:

You are correct, NCF !.....I must have looked too quickly at the trade value chart

Im on the same page as you 

CB's are important, but PR is more important

 

There is a message (and maybe a short lesson) here, with what happened to Rhodes

 

He was successful when he could play man to man

 

As he lost these skills he lost his job

 

In our defense, he does well.

 

Carrie played decent in our defense last year, not an all pro, but he played well.

 

He couldnt get 3M on the open market

 

This defense is set up where your CBs dont have to play man to man, all over the field, which is very hard, and those folks that play that role are expensive.

 

This defense can take other teams "cast offs" (or later round picks that can tackle) and go play football......... 

IF they have a pass rush

 

We need to start building that DL immediately..... or this defense will always be lackluster.

 

And to me an even bigger concern

 

What happens when you face Mahomes in the playoffs and give him all day to throw?..... you lose

 

The elite QBs will eat up this defense with no pass rush

I completely agree. Spending big on a CB is like admitting defeat in the trenches - at least in our system.

    • This is the upside of drafting and maintaining a high character team.   The players and Ballard an Reich have come to an agreement  that satisfies both sides.    Win-win.   The roughly 10 teams who have opted OUT of OTA’s because of a lack of an agreement between management and players likely wish they could trade places with the Colts.      We have leaders not followers.   We are trying to protect all the players not just veterans.  When you opt out of practice the guys hurt the most are the young players trying for a roster spot.  Injured players who are trying to reclaim their previous form.    Today, it’s good to be a Colts fan.   Our organization sees the Big Picture.   Hopefully this leads to better days ahead. 
    • Only part of our schedule that is consider easier is based on Jags and Texans (4 games) and the Jets. As such that knock our SoS. But if you look at the majority of our schedule most of the teams we are to face are 10 win teams last year, or expected to be in contention for Playoff (Raiders, Cards, 49ers). That is pretty much why
    • Not really, much, I think the dude swung like a little ____. Willie Mays Hayes has a better swing. But I think people that do that crap are incredibly stupid and have SDE, I over here never been in a fight, but that is because I am bigger than a lot of people, and have enough swing to break a jaw easily if I ever needed to.  I think the dude should be banned from all Major League parks
    • The Colts do play 6 of the top 9 ranked teams as it stands today.   
    • Favorite - Hooker, Q, Leonard, Pittman, Campbell. Agree with @Supermanthat Hooker had the chance to be special but his career got derailed by injuries. I still feel like if he gets in the right situation and scheme he can be very good and revive his career. Loved Q(my best player in that draft), loved Leonard(compared to others)... I had him as an early second and he was picked early second, but compared to other people not liking the pick I was pretty high on Leonard. Loved both Pittman and Campbell picks, lets see if they make me look foolish. Loved Hines... loved the Tell pick especially when I learned we were going to try to switch him to CB.    Least favorite - didn't love Braden Smith's pick(had him ranked as a 3d rounder, we picked him early second). Didn't love Tyquan Lewis pick... massive reach. Didn't love Khari Willis pick. Thought both Rock and Banogu were reaches, but not huge ones. Zach Banner was a horrible pick I thought.
