Said it  for weeks. Don't be surprised if he goes before Harrison and I had him rated higher.

I’ve been higher on Nabers too. If the Cardinals, Chargers, and/or Giants are where the first receivers come off the board, I could see Nabers being the first WR taken.

I think you’re going to be shocked.  Quarterbacks might go 1, 2, 3, 4.   If that happens I’m not sure I see Harbaugh taking Nabers as the first non-quarterback off the board.   Not with Alt, Harrison, Odunze and even Bowers still on the board.   I’ve also seen lots of speculation that the Chargers might try to trade down a little, get more picks, and still get a top level player.  
 

Just food for thought. 

Everyone says that and every year guys fall. I actually don't think this is a particularly good year.

Nabers got an attitude and I like it. Got a lot of dog in him.

I agree.   Every year guys fall.   And I’m not sure how I feel about this class?   I’ve been saying for a while this is roughly a 4 round draft, roughly 150 really good players, but then it falls off.   It’ll be interesting to see what Ballard does after 150.  He has always found nuggets late.  
 

We mostly agree on this one….

I think everyone is in awe over  the wrs and qbs, but I think you are going to see the LT's DE's and corners picked earlier than most people think. Maybe there is a chance that a guy like Bowers will fall to 15  and everyone here will be happy. Sure, we will score 30 points a point but end up giving up 31 as we have no  playmakers at the positions that are necessary to make a defense good.

From latest mock draft over at NFL.com:

 

“PROJECTED TRADE WITH CHICAGO BEARS

 

Indianapolis sends Chicago a future second-round pick in order to move up six slots and pounce on Nabers, the star receiver out of LSU. In an AFC South that saw the Jaguars, Texans and Titans all aggressively attack free agency, Colts GM Chris Ballard shows he has some tricks up his sleeve, too.”

    • Massive deal. Billions of dollars to the local economies inbound from each of these events. The Rumble is my favorite night of the year, so I’m most excited for that one. There’s nothing better than a well done Rumble.    I’ve said since the day it opened that I don’t know why WWE hasn’t run WM at the stadium. Coming in the north entrance and seeing the ring down below and a full house across the way is going to be a killer camera shot.      Hopefully they open the roof for SummerSlam. 
    • Shaw did do a very poor job of recruiting his last few years which infuriated a good part of the fan base.  They were happy to see him retire early, though he left with a very generous golden parachute which made many fans even angrier.      As for the Hogan years, yes they were very good.  But not primarily due to Hogan who was a nice college level quarterback.    Hogan was supported by (A) Christian McCaffrey and (B) the most talented Stanford recruits in school history.  Including an OL with two future 1st round draft picks on it plus other very good talent.  And (C) some of the best defensive players Stanford ever recruited.   The team was as loaded as Stanford can get.  Hogan just had to be good, there was rarely pressure for him to be great.    Someday….  (If anyone is interested)   Perhaps this off-season, I’ll tell you some great Stanford Sports stories.  The school is an odd mix of strange decisions concerning football and other sports plus some decisions that are both good and infuriating.  Most days it’s easy to be a Stanford fan.  But somedays the school makes it so hard.   Harder than they need to.       
    • 3-14 mostly cause AR is still a question mark. I do like what I did see but until he proves he can make it a season, no one knows. So I’m setting bar low
    • They didn't win a game that AR played the majority of snaps. I am not even factoring in his injury risk. Even assuming he's healthy, he's basically repeating his rookie year. While everybody would agree his upside is higher than Minshew's, there's still nothing definitive to point to AR automatically equaling more wins.    Also, as you mentioned, the Colts fundamentally stayed the same, meanwhile, AFCS teams got stronger, especially HOU and TEN. TLaw beat both Minshew and AR last year. Stroud is now in year 2. Levis will be in year 2 (and if we think AR will make a jump, we have to consider that Levis could as well).   Yes, they won 9 games last year with Minshew. But their schedule isn't the same nor is it easier. So it's weighing the impact of AR returning + some young player development) vs. a much tougher schedule of QBs + offseason improvements for other teams (in most cases) + some young player development.   When I compare what happened last year to what they are facing this year, I don't see where they are supposed to make up the ground in the win column. I suppose there could be a rash of QB injuries again. But barring that, the win improvement has to come against good-great teams, which is a tall order.  
    • History says you win with a great qb or a great defense.  A great d hasn't won in a long time.   What does that leave??
