    There is a very good chance the Colts will get a compensatory 4th round pick due to the loss of Fleener in FA
    That doesn't make any sense

    Reuben Foster out of Alamba. We need a real ILB. This guy is a one man game changer

    You guys keep throwing out positions like ILB and I just laugh.

    We all know we are going to take a RB and he will average 3.5 yards per carry and be wasted.

    Pretty much what i'm thinking. There is no other RB draft or FA that i would want.

    I'm not sure about Peppers. Everything i've read and seen is that people dont know how he projects in the Pro's. They think he might be a nickle corner? Wtf?
    People project players at positions and they still end up sucking. I'm with peppers because he has shown he can be a playmaker all over the field, and I think more than anything on defense we need playmakers. We finished 2nd to last in INT and 3rd to last in passes deflected, and finished with 4 fumbles on the season, which was 25th. I'll add that we finished 2nd to last in YAC as a defense which symbols to me that we are slow and miss a lot of tackles, so just having him there making plays, consistently making tackles and adding much needed speed will help a bunch.

    He also can blitz from multiple positions so that would help with our front 7 grading out last by PFF.

    P.S. We are still going to need some pass rushers as well, but the most important thing is that we have to build a team, guys that fit together if we don't do that then I am worried we will never be that good.

    I saw that as a I was browsing through some material on line. It is based I believe on production of the player that was lost in FA.
    Anyone else know how that is calculated?

    If we got rid of Geathers I would be ok with Peppers. We need a defender who is a game changer. There are more defenders in positions we need who are game changers in the 1st round.

    The exact formula has not been revealed to the public, but it is based mostly on the lost free agent's salary with his new team (weighted against FA signings). Fleener had a 7 million dollar salary last year, and Colts really didn't sign anyone.

    From thin air. Compensatory picks are tacked on to the end of whatever round it's in. Last year there were 33 of them in total, from 3rd rounders to 7th rounders.

    Every single draft pick needs to be defense. Every single one.
