It’s definitely Will Holden time for starting LT and a competition with the great Sam Tevi, Colts fans :thmup:

Yup, not the worst thing in the world. And there'll be cuts and still moves between now and September.

BPA all day

I'm not a fan of this pick, especially with some really talented guys still on the board. Granson is hardly the best TE left by a long shot.

I'm listening to the Draft show on Sirius and they're talking him up as a potential H-back that lines up at several positions.

Right, but then they let a superior player at a position of need fall to the Eagles and then panicked. Not good.

 

I hear ya. But I don't mind this kid. Smart guy but he may not have the athleticism.

We obviously are seriously considering Nelson at LT or have faith in our OT signings.

The latter. Plus, there is still time and nothing is set yet. We'll see roster cuts, we'll see FAs. I wouldn't panic.

 

It';s a bit amusing, i remember how much fans discounted Castonzo. Seemed like most of his years, he was knocked until the last couple years. The Colts will be fine.

 

The QB is mobile right? lol

Not feeling very good about that last pick. Seems like another project type TE.  Disappointing pick with the other options Forsythe, Darden, Cade Johnson, or Tylan who were available.  Not really feeling Ballard much this off season.  

I'll wait and see. So far he's picked guys who i mocked at some point so i cant be mad. When I mocked Granson, he was usually available in round 5 to 7 though.

BPA would have been Tylan Wallace, IMO. Ravens got a good one. They always draft better than most teams, IMO.

It feels like a reach to me. I know Irsay said he wanted a playmaking TE. I see the potential but it seems we like players who are inconsistent. Dropping balls is not a trait I want in a TE.  That should be one of your most sure handed and reliable players.

Yeah, I think he must be someone Reich wants for scheme?

Like the Granson pick a lot, he's the Trey Burton replacement. 

He's very much in the mold of Trey Burton. Almost the same size too.

Again we draft a ST player too early and had the guy going UDFA.  Not a fan of this pick.

He was graded as roughly a 5th rd player, so maybe a bit overdrafted, but not egregious. I'm not the biggest fan, because he's not the type of TE I like, but Reich obviously likes guys like this.

You are kidding right?  Costonzo was a 1st rd pick at 22.  No one discounted him.  Polisn was thrilled to get him and he certainly did not disappoint.

    • I didn't call the contract one-sided. I called the sanctity of the contract one-sided. Teams can and do terminate contracts all the time, with ramifications that vary depending on the situation. But when players take even the mildest of steps to exercise some leverage, fans come with this 'honor your contract' stuff. It's hypocritical.   We all know that the true value of an NFL contract is found in its structure and guarantees. At this point in Kenny Moore's contract, he's openly exposed, and the Colts have all the options, because he has no remaining guaranteed money, and there's only a minimal negative cap penalty if they were to trade or release him. He also knows that every time he steps on the practice field, he's risking his ability to sign another contract. And he hit a Pro Bowl bonus last season, which is barely anything in comparison with NFL pay.   I also disagree with your general characterization of Kenny Moore. He didn't have his best season, but he was not bad all year long. He was bad in the last two games, but was still our third best defensive player all year. He's also a known locker room leader who has always given his best to the team. He is not Carson Wentz, and Carson Wentz was not scapegoated, so the whole bit about 'accountability' applying to players like Kenny Moore is a miss, IMO.   Aaron Rodgers is a great player, and his contract is deserved. He also let his team down at the end of the season, and he's clearly a selfish person and not so great of a teammate. And he's not at OTAs, not because he's hoping for a new contract, just because he doesn't want to be there. Kenny Moore is trying to balance being a good teammate with the business of the NFL.    And when I said Moore is making his wishes known, I meant to the public.    To the bolded, your comments seem to undermine that statement. And ultimately, players don't get new/restructured contracts just because their play warrants it. Contracts are about leverage. Kenny Moore has very little, and the only way he can try to shift the balance in his direction is to sit out OTAs. It's all business.
    • To the bolded…   No, no, no and no…   There are plenty of people risking health, even their lives, for a lot less than these NFL players make.   Not knowing the specifics of his contract I’d wager he’s already made millions?… This idea they HAVE to make millions of dollars for doing something they are absolutely privileged to do is a joke.    That said, the OTAs are voluntary so, yeah…
    • Ballard'll argue his case, and probably already has been arguing it. He wanted to see how far the guy was willing to go, and now it's public. Ballard's actions will be no mystery. If he believes Kenny is worth what he's asking for then he will pay him. If he doesn't think so, then he won't and he'll cut or trade him if/when he can as long as he can get a replacement who he thinks can perform to the value he has given the position.  This situation is not so much about how Ballard handles a player holding out, that part is 100% part of the nature of the business and Ballard has been around the business side for a long time so this isn't something new. The situation is more about what value Ballard places to the player and the position. That's what this will tell us. That's the curious part....from what we knew with the previous DC/defesnive philosophy, the slot corner was very important. If Bradley's defense emphasizes the value of the slot corner then Kenny is getting paid. If it doesn't, well the young man will get cut/traded when the 1st GOOD opportunity comes.
    • This is half the story.    There are almost no contracts that are fully guaranteed in the NFL.  A small handful.    It’s not baseball or basketball or hockey.   Players have almost no leverage.     Fans are fine when the team has leverage, but HATE when the player has it.   Pretty one sided.   You’re free to support anyone, any side you want.   Just don’t be surprised when players resent fans for the lack of support.
