That is a solid pick up! Love it! The draft has gone much better than I could have anticipated. Really liking the talent we are bringing on board.

And still have (3) 5ths. 

 

Its only going to get better.

Hey, I actually predicted we’d go for a center in the mid rounds lol. Not often I’m right about that!

Our trenches are loaded. Both sides.

The best way to counter Stroud and Houston. I’m very happy with our draft.

Well Ballard did say he liked oline depth in  mid rounds

Wisconsin oline are solid picks. They are well schooled on oline play

Wisconsin OL was very penalty prone and Tanor was part of the issue.  Just now had to go back and double check his history.  Had 5 penalties in 2022.  To me that’s never a good sign on a shorter college career compared to 16-18 games in the NFL.

What about 2023

We are pretty good at finding  undrafted free agents that make the team as well so we may still get a steal after the draft.

Definitely with Covid and bonus year going to be plenty of good players who go undrafted.

Good pick to fortify the IOL but McCormick would have been my pick. 9.96 Ras and is nasty

I see them in a similar light. There’s not a huge difference in their skill set IMO,

I really liked McCormick too and probably would have preferred him, but I like Bortolini about as much, so I'm fine with the pick.

That's  improvement and I'm good with that

Covid shortened season for a lot of these kids.  Kind of scews some of these stats but welcome to the Colts got to keep the faith in the draft process.

Would anybody be surprised if we grabbed a running back with the next pick?

I could definitely see us use one of the 3 5th rounders on one.

The only thing I’d change about @Dr. T contest is give the full credit for a round, whether Ballard moves up or down in a specific round, like from No.46 to No.52. This results in both you and @BlueStallion not getting the full points and only alternate round points. 
 

To me, it adds to the strategy of choosing someone early Round 2 or later Round 2 thrown into the choices based on whether Ballard moves up or down. If it’s technically a round up or below, I understand not getting full points.

Agreed. Couple of years back, I conducted Dr. T's contest concept in Vikings forum and had changed one thing as you said. People loved it..

    • it’s been explained several times, but you continue to ignore it.      Jamal Adams is a strong safety.  The Colts aren’t looking for a strong safety, if they want a safety at all it will be a free safety.    So maybe Simmons or Diggs are the safeties to keep an eye on.

    • I like this. As a way to refine my thinking on your question, I'm bolding the players that I think have a reasonable chance of a) being on the roster next season, and b) have a reasonable chance of getting a meaningful second contract from the Colts. Starred players are those that I think have a good chance of being Pro Bowlers within the next 2-3 years. And italics are rookies, on whom I'm not yet taking a position.   To me, the bolded are the projected young core of the roster. And the starred and bolded -- Richardson, Taylor -- represent the potential stars on the roster (Taylor already being a star-level player).    Mitchell and Latu deserve recognition as well. I think highly of their prospects, they could be star level players in the future.
    • I know there was questions about TE bring there. Cox was there. Don’t know if any others were there.
    • I often go through an exercise I call "Tomorrow's Colts", in homage to the Star Trek episode "Tomorrow's Enterprise", where I look at the roster counting only the young players.  Just those 25 and younger.  This gives me an idea of the shape of our team when it comes to asking the question "If we have only a 4-year window, or a 6-year window, who would still be here at the end of that window?  Who would our foundational players be?  And which of today's players would determine the boundary of that window, because of their retirement?"  Also, which positions should we draft, simply to backfill for those rounding out their careers. As you look over the list, please note who is missing.   Tomorrow's Colts QB Anthony Richardson (age 22) QB Sam Ehlinger (age 25) RB Jonathan Taylor (age 25) RB Trey Sermon (age 25) RB Evan Hull (age 23) WR Alec Pierce (age 24) WR Josh Downs (age 22) WR Adonai Mitchell (age 21) WR Anthony Gould (age 23) TE Jelani Woods (age 25) TE Drew Ogletreen (age 25) TE Will Mallory (age 25) T Blake Freeland (age 23) T Jake Witt (age 24) T/G Matt Goncalves (age 23) G/C Tanor Bortolini (age 22) G Dalton Tucker (age 24) DE Kwity Paye (age 25) DE Dayo Odeyingbo (age 24) DE Laiatu Latu (age 23) DE Isaiah Land (age 24) DT Aditomiwa Adibawore (age 23) DT Jonah Laulu (age 24) LB Grant Stuard (age 25) LB Cameron McGrone (age 25) LB Jaylon Carlies (age 22) CB JuJu Brents (age 24) CB Jaylon Jones (age 22) DB Jaylon Simpson (age 24) DB Ameer Speed (age 24) S Julian Blackmon (age 25) S Nick Cross (age 22) S Trevor Denbo (age 25)   Note anybody missing?  And how they would affect the length of our current window?
