    I think the Colts will select Jimmy Smith in the 1st round

    If something nuts happens and Mallet falls to the 3rd round and its the Colts pick, you have to take him. Three or four years behind Manning and he'll be a stud and he's also potentially major trade value.

    I sure hope it's only in the 3rd round, and to be honest that would scare me.

    Kid is a good player, but has trouble written all over him.

    And I like Jimmy Smith too, but both guys just don't seem like "Colts guys" to me. Both have character issues, which isn't really the Colts thing.

    Both seem to be better fits for the Titans, Bengals, or other teams who don't care about your character.

    Justin Tryon cost us only a 7th round pick?


    Talk about a steal. Dude was great last season for us.

    Agreed. The Colts rarely make trades, but that was a fantastic one last year. Tryon really is a good CB, and I would value him right now at a late 3rd round, high 4th round talent.

    An absolute steal for the Colts. Plus we can basically pencil in (hopefully) Kevin Thomas for this season, so it's like having an additional pick in this draft since he missed all last year as our 3rd round pick.

    And if you guys wouldnt of had injurys we wouldnt even know who Justin Tryon was. Injurys can be a blessing in devlopment. The Bears started a rookie last year who was a 7th rd pick also Jamarcus Webb.(thats only because our Oline is really that bad)

    Agreed.

    Also, we found that Kavell Conner is a really good player. He was one of our 7th round picks, and that kid can flat out play.

    He's going to be a really good LB in the near future.

    That's been our case for years. Without injuries, we wouldn't have gotten to see guys like Bethea, Brackett, Hayden, Powers, Collie, White, Tamme, Bullitt, Garcon, or Angerer shine.

    Agreed. Exactly what I was saying.

    The guy is a troublemaker. A very talented kid, but the Colts don't draft low character players.

    I still want Corey Liuget so bad. I know some people aren't high on him, and if Carimi or Castonzo are available, I want one of them.

    But if both are gone, we need Liuget. He's a 3-tech, but an elite one. Those don't come around often, and once he gets stronger he can be an absolute stud.

    I have no idea about what trades will happen & players selected. I would not be shocked if Blaine Gabb is available in the early 20's when the Colts are selecting. It is a crazy draft, you couldnt fault Bills or Bengals taking Patterson or AJ Green over him.

    Sounds like Andy Dalton has over taken Gabb has the 2nd overall QB. The Titians really like him at 8th and he isnt likley to fall past 25th at worst .

    Daquan Bowers could fall to the Colts because of his knee. He is a top 5 talent i would think the Colts are the type of team who could take that kind of gamble on him.

    Polian would get killed by the locals for taking DEs two years in a row.

    I still think we're going DT.

    Also, Dakich had a good point on Mark Ingram. I wouldn't blame the Colts for taking him if he's there.

    Also, as P4E said, Solder is just so, so, so, so, so soft. I couldn't stand having him as our LT. He's honestly not that good.

    It will be very interesting to see what happens with all these QB's. I am guessing this order: Cam Newton Andy Dalton Jake Locker Blain Gabb

    I would be suprised if the 49ers go QB.

    It all depends what Carolina does then the dominoes fall
    If they dont take Newton does a team trade up

    What do the Bills do, Fitzpatrick was not awful as their defense. It is going to be a good night for fellow sports geeks.


    I am going to tune in 4 sure

    the 3rd, I would take him if he slipped to them in the 2nd, I think that he has the second highest potential out of any QB in this draft, and probably end up being the best.

    Bowers is outstanding, is he a pass rushing fast end though, I heard a lot of his sacks came off broke plays

    Had thoughts about Ingram myself, that would be a shocker but a good one at that, people have said that wasn't a good Idea but I think he should be dominate in this league.

    I guess I don't mind Solder as much as everyone else, he has the highest potential I think, and I could care less right now how soft he is, as long as he is not letting people get to peyton right now I think he can develop in other areas later.

    Disagree, I think it'd be a bad pick with Freeney, Mathis, and Hughes still on the roster. Just because Bowers "was" projected top 5 doesn't mean he is now. He's projected to go after our pick in the major mock drafts (Kiper, McShay, WalterFootball). We need O-line help desperately.

    I guess my problem with Solder is this. I can get past him being soft. But he's just so weak and his height is actually a disadvantage. Sure, he can get stronger. But he struggles to get leverage and every single time he gets bull rushed he gets shoved practically into his QB which isn't going to work in Indy. Also, I don't like "project picks" in the 1st round.

    And the problem with Jimmy Smith isn't his girlfriend. It's the 3 failed drug tests and numerous arrests.

    That is where his is projected to go but, his projection as far as available prospects is still 6th on Mel Kipers big board... the Mocks are just where they expect he will go and doesn't speak exactly as a reflection of where they view there talent is... lol all it takes to see that is Cam Newton projected as the #1 pick, lol

    Also I think Freeney is nearing the end of his time as a Colt pretty soon, or his career, and Colts usually rotate there DE's a lot so I don't think it would be that bad.

    Yeah he is a good player, I think he will go in the 4th rd though... hopefully the colts bring in the home town guy, expecially if he falls to the 5th or 6th round

    Wow Darren really dropped that far? before his knee injury he was projected a 1st rder. I just assumed he would still be early 2nd rder but Ryan Williams did take a lot of his carries this year.
