What Will the Colts Do On Day Three With Their Remaining Picks?


Recommended Posts

Day two of the NFL Draft is over and the Colts have drafted three players who could potentially fill key positions of need on their roster.  The Colts will have two fifth round, two sixth round picks and a seventh round pick on day three of the draft tomorrow.  What positions do you see the Colts addressing?  Who are some of the players you would like to see picked in the late rounds?

  • Carolina Colt changed the title to What Will the Colts Do On Day Three With Their Remaining Picks?

Trade a 5th and 6th to get into the 4th, then get the "best available:

 

Isaiah Spiller-RB, Texas A&M

Tariq Woolen- CB, Texas San Antonio

Coby Bryant-CB, Cincinnati 

Calvin Austin III- WR, Memphis

 

But my choice:

Sam Howell-QB, North Carolina

Since Ballard has proven definitively that he does has a predictable draft pattern, here are some Ballard guys still left for Day 3: 

 

CB:

-Tariq Woolen, UTSA

-Jaylen Watson, Washington State

-Akayleb Evans, Missouri

-Joshua Williams, Fayetteville State 

-Vincent Gray, Michigan 

 

LB

-Darrian Beavers, Cincinnati

- Brandon Smith, Penn State

 

DE

-Myjai Sanders, Cincinnati

-Jeffrey Gunter, Coastal Carolina 

-Dominique Robinson, Miami (Ohio)

 

DT

-Thomas Booker, Stanford 

-Perrion Winfrey, Oklahoma 

 

Also not sure if they are Ballard guys in terms of traits but Sam Howell and Carson Strong would be great picks. If we double dip at WR I like Bo Melton and Romeo Doubs.

Quite a few folks left 

 

Many depth pieces available

 

Not thinking a starter may come today

 

I would love to take a flyer on Sam Howell, Zappe, or Strong

 

I get the feeling we need some additional DL to develop (1T or 3 T)

 

We are thin in the interior

I like many of the names you mentioned here and being a UNC Tar Heel fan I would definitely take a flyer on Sam Howell if somehow he is available when we get a chance to pick again.  Howell has a cannon for an arm (he threw 59MPH during pro day which was the highest velocity recorded).  He is a good runner and one thing I like most about him is his demeanor, nothing shakes or rattles him.  Howell does have a lot to learn about decision making and can be too much of a gunslinger sometimes. He also needs to work on speeding up his release.  I'm really surprised he has not been drafted yet.

 

Besides the positions you mentioned I'd like the Colts to look at the BPA for another offensive lineman too.  We could use another more quality depth piece considering we lost several players there last year.

I would also jump up and get Howell here.  Also if that fails trade for Bradberry.

Been warming up to B. Zappe. We still need speed wr also.

I'll have to admit I don't know much about Bailey Zappe but I agree, someone like Danny Gray or Tyquan Thornton if they are available with a forty time under 4.4 seconds would be a nice addition in the slot.  Kyle Phillips of UCLA who wowed people at the Senior Bowl is a natural fit for the slot position too.

Both Danny Gray and Tyquan Thorton were drafted.

 

Also I’m regards to my earlier post, Myjai Sanders was actually drafted already.

    • I’m old enough to remember the 2021 season. 
    • My top 15 would be: Based on eye test (except Graham, Starr, and Unitas as I was too young to watch them live but I have seen film on them), stats, MVP's, over all win shares, longevity, talent, and clutchness, etc..   1. Tom Brady - eventhough I feel weary putting him here because there have been a couple of cheating scandals. 7 SB wins, 5 SB MVP's, 3 League MVP's, and his stats are among the best ever. His longevity is so impressive as well. He didn't cheat when the Bucs won it all in 2020, so there is that.   2. Joe Montana - 4 SB wins, 3 SB MVP's, 2 League MVP's. He had 0 INT's in 4 SB games, that is unbelievable.    3. Peyton Manning - 2 SB wins, 1 SB MVP,  5 League MVP's - most ever by any NFL player in history. He holds the record for most Yards (5477) and TD's (55) in 1 season = 2013. He was 3-1 vs Brady in AFC Title Games. I would put him in my top 3 all day. He is Mr. 12 wins a year.   4. Johnny Unitas - 1 SB win (1970) as an older starter but 2 NFL Championships in 1958 and 1959. He put up great stats for a QB that played in the 50's and 60's. He actually won a League MVP in the SB era (1967).   5. John Elway - Could do it all. Run, had a cannon for an arm. Once he got a running game in 1997 it wasn't fair. Won SB's in 1997 and 1998. Won League MVP in 1987. Stats wise not too shabby either = 50,000 yards passing and 300 TD's.   6. Aaron Rodgers - 1 SB win, 1 SB MVP, 4 League MVP's. He wins 12 or 13 games every year it seems in his sleep     7. Otto Graham - In his era, he dominated. Won several Championships. He belongs here at worse. I know how great he was but I just feel the other 6 QB's were better.   8. Drew Brees - Stats king, 1 SB win, he would be higher but no League MVP's.   9. Brett Favre - 1 SB win, he is the only NFL player to win 3 straight League MVP's in a row = 1995-1997. He put up huge numbers as well and was an iron man. He would be higher on this list but his total INT's has him here. He is still top 10 and fun to watch.   10. Dan Marino - the only QB I have in my top 10 that didn't win a SB/Championship. By eye test and talent alone he was top 10. He lost to Montana in his only SB appearance (1984), won the League MVP that season in 1984. He set records with TD passes and yards in 1984 that were video game numbers. He never had a defense or run game in his entire career.   11. Terry Bradshaw - He helped the Steelers to 4 SB wins, his stats weren't elite but he did win 1 League MVP, unlike lets say a Ben Roethlisberger who never won a League MVP. He had a stacked team but 4 is 4.   12. Steve Young - As a starter won 1 SB, had it not been for the Cowboys he probably wins 3. He won 2 League MVP's, Aikman never won an League MVP.   13. Roger Staubach - I think he was better than Aikman by the eye test who was also a Cowboys QB. He did win 2 SB's and went to 4 like Peyton as a starter. He was like Steve Young, he could run and scramble really well.   14. Troy Aikman - He helped the Cowboys win 3 SB's. Like Bradshaw on stacked teams but in big games his accuracy was spot on. IMO Emmitt Smith was the best player on his teams but without Troy they don't win 3 SB's either.   15. Patrick Mahomes - as a starter, has made 4 straight AFC Championships games, has won a SB and been too 2. He has won a League MVP, SB MVP, and has had a season where he threw for 5000 yards and 50 TD's = 2018. He is the best QB over the last 4 seasons easily and going into 2022 I have him #1. Even without Hill, they will still win the AFC West IMO.      - Omissions, people will say where in the hell is Sammy Baugh? Sammy is top 20 = great QB, here is the deal with Sammy. He was known as a top 20 football player of all-time because of his defense and punting ability along with his QB play, just not for his QB play. Was he a great QB, hell yes but not better than my top 15. Overall player he is arguably top 10 because of his defensive play and Punting ability's.    Where is Bart Starr? I say Top 20. He wasn't better than Mahomes though IMO.
    • Yup, after I posted, I looked it up. Looks like Coutee only had 2 weeks on the 53 last year, which he needs 6 min for an accrued season.    If TY isn't resigned, I think Coutee stands a decent chance of sticking on the 53. We're over stocked on bigs, not so much on Z/slot types. That is, unless they start running 6-3+ guys from Z... 
    • I think Coutee has one more year to accrue.
    • Coutee was a late waive (last cut day) by Houston that surprised a lot of folks, and we jumped on him quickly (I think it was around the time we knew TY would miss time). I don't mean necessarily that someone will grab him for a starter roll, but he'll get grabbed by someone (PS or 53). He's been in the league 4 seasons, but not sure he's met the accrued 4 year stipulation (weeks on 53). Strachan and Patmon both have a little film out there which will interest teams. Patmon has a bit of a rep for not being a my-ball guy, so that likely hurts him. Strachan is seen as raw with a high ceiling so teams are more likely to romanticize lol. All three would at least make it to a team, 53 or PS. But I think Strachan is the most likely claimed for a 53 spot.
