6. Baptiste NT – Back up Mc Kinley

Eldridge is always hurt. Can't address everything in one draft. Catching TE is a luxury

Watch the NFL combine when the TEs were out and try saying TE is a luxury again....most of them couldn't catch the ball if they were covered with stickum from head to toe.

That #34 pick is tricky. There are at least 5 ways we can go and it all depends on whose on the board at the time. In my eyes I would be happy with:

Fleener (TE)

Hill (WR)

Gilmore (CB)

Hosley (CB)

Reyes (DE)

Baptiste won't be there in the 6th. I'm not even sure he'll be there in the 4th or 5th. IMO he's the most consistent NT in this draft.

I really like the first 3 rounds. I just don't think Osemele will be there :(

AJ Jenkins > Tommy Streeter

Audie Cole probably won't be there in the 6th round

Baptiste is a good pick, but won't go in the late 6th round.

7th round is good.

All in all, pretty good, but I really don't like the emphasis on the TE spot. You wait until the last round to address our biggest need (besides QB) (imo).

I agree with the second round. Lots of possibilties. I know Baptiste might go sooner. He would still be good value in 5th. I just think picking a NT sooner would be reaching this year.

I agree some picks are optimistic. Maybe Cole, Osemele, Baptiste wont be there but this is where I think they would be the best value for the team. Earlier would be reaching. I have no problems taking Jenkins over Streeter although Streeter is my fav. Kinda thinking Jenkins will go in the third though. I feel a guard earlier would be a solid pick for the future of the team. Maybe Brooks or Washington.

I agree, to me he's extremely underrated. I wouldn't mind us taking him 4th or 5th even though he's projected 6th/7th/UDFA...

    • I’m not sure why you find it hard to accept that the Colts may have cash flow problems?  Not that they can’t manage them, but still….   Irsay is one of the few owners who doesn’t have any other source of big income.   No high tech company.  No real estate development.   No oil and gas.   His wealth is owning the Colts.   That’s it.    Sure he may he may spend money, but these last five years he now uses a pay-go system that lends itself to managing money.  We used to give bigger SB’s under Grigson.   Now,  we give either small or no signing bonuses.   Very few teams do that.  And we’re a very small market franchise.   You weren’t the least bit surprised to see DeForest Buckner accept a ZERO signing bonus?   I sure was.     Point of clarification:  none of what I’ve written is proof of anything.   But I think it’s at least worth considering, and you seem completely unwilling to even do that.  I confess find that surprising. 
    • Just because they had money left over doesn’t mean Irsay had a problem spending it had Ballard wanted too.  It doesn’t take that hard of a look back at Irsay’s history of owner to see he has zero problem spending what his GM wants to spend.  
    • That's not exactly true if you consider cap space left over. IIRC, we had the most unspent or near most unspent over a 3-4 year period just recently (IIRC, 16, 17, 18, 19). Pretty sure we had 40+M unspent two years in a row.   IIRC, we carried over the most in the league again this year at around 30M.   It was also speculated that we 1) didn't ask Luck for money back, AND 2) gave JB such a big raise, was because we would have been too far under the 89% rule had we not done both 1 and 2.     
    • Regardless Irsay has never been shy about spending to make the Colts better.  So either way the first point that started all this is irrelevant.  
    • Keep in mind the mandate is really only for public schools. And the majority of states allow religious and other exemptions. Only a handful of states like Cali and NY have disallowed religious exemptions.
