no but it was better then drafting a tight end two picks in a row although I really like Allen and like Fleener but I would drafted one or the other with our needs thats all Im saying

Honestly.... so would I but it looks like Grigson wants to "load up" on high quality guys at positions that help Luck.

Let's see how the rest of our picks go.... there's still alot of good players on the board. :)

I think we can see that Grigson is following his plan of BPA to the letter...........are there players available at OTHER positions of need at this point, heck yeah there are............but, you can make the argument that we now can field an authentic NFL offense with the three draftee's plus Wayne and Collie on the outside and a line of Castonzo-Rietz-Satele-Ijalana-Justice and a Brown/Carter backfield!

With that being said, there are several DT's that 'should' still be available in the 4th round and it also goes to show that Pagano may have more confidence in Rucker and Thomas at corner than originally thought?

Grigson said NT is fine. Now that's what he thinks so I'm saying we go CB in the 4th like Dennard, Hosely or Leonard Johnson. Another possibility would be Markelle Martin. As far as WR it would be T.Y. Hilton then Streeter in the fifth.

Ultimately, I think Ta'amu is aa 3 tech/5 tech. He's more of a disruptive player than a nose. Would rather have Josh Chapman late.

Ta'amu is going to be your 0 technique NT. He can't do much in the passing game as he doesn't have a lot of pass rushing moves and he isn't very fast. He will force offenses to double team him and let the LBs make plays while being able to stuff the run

On a side note, am I the only one watching the draft via nfl.com? My NFL Network has been down since the Lions picked in the 2nd round (the pick before that, actually). Watching the free stream now, but didn't subscribe to see Bucky Brooks & co, as well as listening to fantasy analysis from Michael Fabiano.

The most Productive, most talented player in the front 7 left is Jake Baquette. He is 6'4, but I didn't do to much scouting on him. But in the two games i've seen, he did very well in 1 and had a 2 sacks, and the other he was completely dominated by Bobbie Massie and Sowell.

Loved Fleener pick... Curious about the ALlen cuz never considered the Stanford O in Indy...If we are O focused give me Givens and an O lineman. And heck, a runner like Tauren Poole!

Still have pics to thicken the D but if a D minde guy like Pags isn't stressing our current stable of guys on HIS side of the ball... I'm not! Let's put up some points!

What a waste of a 2nd round pick... Honestly i would MUCH rather have a Stephen Hill-Dwayne Allen combo then a 2 TE set... the only way that works is if your team has legit recivers the defence has to cover too... not just Reggie Wayne... we could have had Upshaw to shore up that DE position or Cordy Gleen to be able to get Ben Ijalana to RT and make our Line 20x better... Or we could have got a CB which is the positon we need the most, But noooo we take the most pointless guy, Coby Fleener is not better then almost anyother TE in this draft that we could have and did draft in the 3RD round and if we waited could have drafted in the 4TH round, we had Stephen Hill, Cordy Gleen or Courtny Upshaw wrapped in a bow for us and we took exactly who i hoped we wouldnt, Great way to start of a new era... a terrible pick that we could have used on a potential probowl (if it was still around) player... :(

Mark My Word Coby Fleener is the most overrated player in this draft, and i have a strong feeling will be a major bust, He dosn't have Vernon Davis Hight and Speed and isnt close to Gronks size or tuffness, i hate when people compair the two.They are not even close

    • Why would you compare a professional GM to a fan on the internet, then say you'll take the GM?     Seems like an odd way to contribute to a thread.   Said it for a reason other than to contribute maybe?   What is that reason?
    • I’m going to go out on a limb and say the positions you value may not be in line with the positions Chris Ballard values.   I’ll go with Ballard and take my chances.... 
    • This is as close to reading things that I have been saying for some time now.    WR, DB, PR are significant to the passing game, and we lack depth and probably top tier talent in those corps and have for years, extending into mid-Grigson tenure.   They are also EXPENSIVE positions.  Positional value matters.  While individual picks like Kelly and Nelson are great, and throw in a FS in between, back to back to back first round picks that repeatedly ignore positional value is going to leave a team short in the expensive positions down the road.  With TY slowing, we are there now. And we still need an expensive LT soon.    Having all-pro players is always nice, but investing capital in all pro players in low-ish value positions makes it more difficult to find enough capital to accumulate higher value positions.  And now we need our 4th round QB to probably play above his draft position to avoid having to draft another QB high.   I think Ballard got a win with Buckner, and got good value with getting a 3 down RB (my projection) in Taylor and a competent #2 WR (my projection) in Pittman.  But he's going to have to allocate first round drat picks for a #1WR, a LT ,and a threatening DE over the next three years to make up for the Colts investing multiple first round picks in low value positions a few years ago.   And yes, the first 2 or 3 years Vontae Davis was here he basically played man and shut down the other teams #1WR.  That was a big deal that is missed very much.
    • Peyton has as many as Shula and Polian has one less in terms of wins and appearances in the Super Bowl.  You might not think they are football geniuses but you would be in the very small minority of those that don’t.
