Harold Carmichael from the Eagles in the seventies and Calvin Johnson from Detroit are two names that come to mind but you are right, it is rare to see a pass catcher with that kind of size.

It's rare to see any player that tall. If "he's so tall" is the worst thing to say about a TE, I'll get over it.

Bell is an odd case. He catches every thing but he’s a bit small and SLOW . But plays faster than his numbers show. There’s also the selfish side of him too. I’ve seen some mocks with him as high a mid 2nd and as low as you say, 6th round. 

When was he selfish?  Him skipping the bowl game?  I saw him take a helmet to helmet knockout shot last season and still come back and play to help Purdue qualify for that bowl game when he easily could’ve shut it down afterwards.  Also saw him celebrate other teammates having big games when he was out with the concussion.  Looked like his teammates loved him.

Johnson was not  6'7.  He was so 6'5

Yeah I don't know of any character issues with Bell, he's just kinda slow. If we had an "X" receiver who could fly already instead of Pittman, I would have said go get this guy. I'm very surprised he's still there.

Harold Carmichael was an outstanding WR for the Eagles back in the 70’s & 80’s. He was 6’8”. 
 

It’s all up to the player to succeed or not.  The Colts believe in him and now the balls in his court.

He was pretty good, he was not outstanding. His height made up for the rest of his abilities being OKish.

I disagree.  For that era, having 8,985 Receiving yards is more than “OKish.”

Thanks, I cannot keep up because the internet is not stable. I read on DN that Ingram had been suspended for an off the field incident. I do not like that. We got Booth that you liked. How do you like Osamoah?

 

Has there been a run on QBs? Is Ridder still available?

That suspension was on 2018, I think I read, per the draft network. That Also said it got resolved by 2019 season beginning and he's been starter ever since or so. I'm outside, so saying from my memory. I'm not worried about him in that case. It read like he could be great in run blocking, but didn't get to read a lot about pass protection. Hope he doesn't turn out to be Elflein kind. You see why they picked him - for run blocking. Hope he helps Cousins as well. He's said to be strong and really scheme versatile and not just zone blocking guy, so should be better in power blocking and against bull rush, I think, compared to Bradbury and Elflein. He also has played well at both sides of guard positions, and could provide quality snaps at tackle. Let's see if they make him immediate starter. 

 

Not really have a great idea about the LB. Report said he's solid WILL linebacker, great range and violent tackler, so same traits like Cine pick. This guy's said to have struggled initially to understand Alabama complex defense, so they say he needs a simplified defense. Not sure what to make of that. One similarity I noticed is both these guys have 10 inch hand size.. Some analytics, metrics, and scheme combo new GM is looking for, I'm sure Marksp18 and Wludford are taking notes right now.. He he.. 

 

Only one QB until that Vikings pick at #66. Didn't check draft after that yet. I do think Malik Willis will be better, unless he's really bad in his accuracy, which is what teams are afraid of, I guess. Watching him, I thought it would be at least a correctable problem, like what they said for Josh Allen. But it's up to individual to work on it. I thought all other QBs had problems with mechanics or mental aspect that can't be easily corrected. 

 

I didn't get that feeling with Willis, but that's just my evaluation, lol

I think Raimann might be the best value pick so far tonight by the Colts.  Many of the draft boards had him going in the late first to early second round and he was selected in the third round.  If he stays healthy, he has the potential to be the left tackle of the future for the Colts. If he wins the left tackle position in training camp that means that Pryor can step back into the role he fills well as quality depth at the T/G positions on the offensive line.

Didn’t realize we traded away our 4th around pick 


Yes….  At first, I didn’t either.  
 

we traded our two and our four.    And in return, we got Minnesota’s 2, 3 and 6.   
 

A 3 for 2 draft where we got back about 60 more trade value points, which is roughly the value of a mid-4.   A win for the Colts.  
 

Honestly, I thought there was a decent chance we’d trade back once or twice in the third to get a 4 and more.   That we didn’t tells me we loved both Woods and Raimann and didn’t want to risk losing either. 
 

That’s a good days work.  
 

Now, I wonder how we get a 4 tomorrow?

.....over 13 years, which is less than 700 yds per year. And it's not like he was hurt a lot. That's very OKish...at best, even for that era.

Could Raimann win the LT spot in camp?   Maybe.    But I wouldn’t expect it.   Raimann is a very good athlete for his size.   He could play either tackle spot, or even kick inside and play guard.   And he’s only played OL for two years.   His future is right in front of him, he should have a bright future at some spot.

I’d expect nothing less than a glass half empty view from you of Carmichael or any other player any one would bring up that was contradictory to your thoughts or, a positive to this pick.  Enjoy the rest of the draft

I expect Pryor to be the starter unless he just blows things up. We will hear from Ballard as soon as this 3rd round is over.

After watching what other teams in our division have done over the years in the draft, im not to concerned on what Ive seen this draft so far! How are the Titans gonna choose between Tannehill and Willis!? I still see our Colts team as a better all-round team! Jax may be the 2nd best team behind us! Im feeling good about our AFCS chances next season!

    • This take is wild to me.   Imagine Tua being 'cleared' by the medical staff and then insisting that he doesn't feel right and refusing to go back in. Imagine the way that everyone - fans, media, teammates - would react to that. We've already got * fans of this team insisting that Leonard should be playing because he was able to stand on the sideline and cheer the team on against the Chiefs - people questioning his commitment.   Almost every player is likely to *want* to go back in because they're competitive and relentless by their very nature. It's tough to get to the NFL if you're not a little crazy like that. But even more importantly, every player is *forced* to want to go back in because their entire livelihood depends on it. Tua hasn't had a great start to his career. He's just getting hot and you expect him to say, 'Nah coach, stick Teddy out there. I'm gonna sit this one out. He can win the game as well as I can so it's all good.' You need a little head wobble of your own if you think that constitutes lying or if you think any player is going to say something like that.   It's the players that put their lives on the line when they take the field. They make a fantastic living doing it, and they do it by choice, but there are a huge number of people who also make a great living in the NFL without ever having to place themselves in equally dangerous situations. It's the responsibility of those people - owners, doctors, NFL staff, etc. - to safeguard the players on whom the league relies because they're not always in a position to safeguard themselves.
    • I want him to play but I absolutely want the medical staff to err on the side of caution. A random win in Week 4 isn't worth trading Leonard's long-term health for. You can't be messing around and rolling the dice when it comes to the back/spine.      It's the job of the NFL and its organisations to try to keep the players safe though, not place them in harm's way intentionally. At least, it should be.    That's like saying people shouldn't have to wear seatbelts when they drive because there's a chance that they'll crash and die anyway. I think that's silly.   He didn't pass the rules that were in place, which is a huge part of the problem. Gross Motor Instability is supposed to be an immediate removal from the game and he's placed into concussion protocol. Gross Motor Instability is exactly what Tua displayed but he returned to the game anyway. The only way this could happen is if his instability was proven to be orthopaedic rather than neurological, and there's simply no way that that was the case. 
    • Yeah, the last time Buckner was out vs. Henry - that went really well.  It was a demoralizing 2000s style rush defense performance.
    • taylor is mot running as well since glow is gone
    • I am betting Leonard plays.  The fact he hasn’t been ruled out means he’s very close.  Buckner I think the signs are pointing to him not playing and that’s concerning.  The one game he missed vs the Titans they ran wild.
