Colts Positional Spending Ranks (Current, plus past and future)


Recommended Posts

Wanted to post a thread on this topic for a while. Thought the timing would be good with some of the debate about paying our guys with contracts coming up ( like Leonard, Q, Smith, etc).

 

First rank is current 2021. The ranks in () are the past year 2020, and future 2022. When looking at 2022, just keep in mind it's a future rank for those under contract (it will absolutely change).

 

Overall Offense - 4th (2020 - 1st, 2022 - 28th)

  • QB - 14th (1st/10th) - Great value if Wentz pans out, now, and future.
  • RB - 11th (22nd/27th) - Riding Taylor should keep us good for a while, but Hines contract is coming due. Mack was a nice one year rental if healthy.
  • WR - 16th (14th/28th) - need Campbell to break through and stay healthy to ride this savings.
  • TE - 9th (10th/12th) - folks that are overly needy about TE need to look around the league (production and spend).
  • OL - 4th (2nd/32nd) - this is scary given both our two best OL are top 10 at their position and are coming due. We're going to be #1 by a wide margin.

 

Overall Defense - 23rd (20th/32nd)

  • iDL - 3rd (4th/9th) - happy with Buchner overall, but would be nice to see more sack production.
  • Edge - 32nd (16th/29th) - need to either spend here, or big-time hit on 2021's draft pick. 
  • LB - 22nd (23rd/26th) - We've ridden this one, and it's time to pay up. We'll be top 5ish or at least 10ish once we extend Leonard.
  • S - 29th (24th/25th) - really need Blackmon to develop and do better than 2nd half of 2020 so we can ride this for a while.
  • CB - 12th (18th/17th) - we've solved things for 2021, but Rhodes and Carrie's clocks are both limited (both 30). FA has worked to an extent, but our pass D isn't great regardless.

 

Overall, we need our O, especially our passing game, to step up this year to warrant our top 5 spend. Our D outperformed our spend last year, at least from a run D perspective.

Kind of alarming that we really have no skill players to speak of.

 Wow dead last at edge.  That hopefully will change soon.

Should not be surprise though given both starters from last year are gone.

Really hoping to see JH signed again.

this looks like we have not spent money to have elite talent at edge, looks like we got what we paid for

 

 NO, he has drafted for it! And CB will keep drafting for it.
Though Houston was a solid add and was PAID rather well.

 Exactly my point, and thanks for expanding on my initial comment.

if he is going to get a pass rush through the draft he needs to make a lot better picks at that position then he has so far in the last 4 years

    • The risk is of opportunity cost, not of losing that money. The risk is that we have now made our bet with the LT position and we are missing on more safe options, so if he doesn't recover or recovers and is not the same, we are very likely left with sub-par performance at LT for the year...     
    • He should have been like "...and my source said ... and I quote 'Look...'"  
    • As you likely know,  the 2021 schedule is revealed Wednesday Night...   5/12...   8p your time...   5p my time...     These are things I always look for as soon as I see the schedule.   In no particular order....   1.    Do we start at home, or on the road?   Typically, you close your season with the opposite.       2.    Marquee games?    National Games?    Are we on the big stage at all?    Anything beyond the dreaded Thursday night games which most every team gets stuck with and hates!     Ugh.  The worst.   3.   Bye week?    When does it happen?    I prefer late October to Early November.   Something close to the middle of the season.    We got lucky once having the bye week in week 4.    That was Luck's rookie year.    The early break allowed Chuck Pagano and his wife to see a doctor and caught his leukemia early enough to save him.    Otherwise, I hate the early bye week.   I prefer weeks 7-10.   4.   Hardest stretch of the schedule.   Easiest part of the schedule.   Knowing full well that what the schedule might seem like in May, might be totally different by the time that part of the season comes.   5.    Potential bad weather games.    So, this year,  we play Buffalo, Baltimore, Dolphins and Jags on the road.   Games in September likely means hot and humid.   Games in the northern cities in December likely means cold and even possible snow.   6.    Anything out of the ordinary?    Some years, one team gets screwed and has to play 3 consecutive games on the road.    I think it has most recently happened to SF and Seattle,  and those teams already put on a lot of miles traveling from the West Coast.   Did I leave out anything?     Is there something you look for and I didn't mention it?    Let us know!   The 2021 season gets REAL Wednesday Night!
