    Default Could Colts Trade Back Into the First?

    Looks like our new coach really wants a NT...and not just any NT.

    Michael Brockers - 6'6" 306lbs with room to grow.

    If he's there at 20 or later, then I wouldn't mind trading up for him. Just depends on the cost.

    Kinda interesting considering the Colts have many needs and might have to give up 3 picks to get him.
    Lance + Starting SG = Awesome

    Now really free Lance!

    Too many holes to fill to be doing this.. I doubt we trade up to get him personally.

    If he falls to the second round, fine.

    But to trade back as you begin a rebuild? To me that is kind of crazy.

    VA, he means the Colts should keep the #1, take Luck, then put a package together to trade back into the late 1st round to snag a defensive player that won't be there at #34.

    Some mocks have him going around 25.

    That would be awfully tempting, but yeah, I agree it's not smart. You can hope you have a high pick next year and some good DTs coming out.

    I'd hope that Fleener/Hill are there are 34.

    We have too many holes to plug up. Don't trade up. We will get a good player at the top of the second round.

    Yeah, I get that.

    I just don't think it makes sense to give up any late picks to move back up, I don't think any player is worth that.

    The only exception I could possibly make would be a weak side tackle.

    If he is available in the 2nd round, great. But if not, I think the price is way to high, esp if you have to give up anything besides your 2nd round pick.

    He is not a NT anyways, more of a 4-3 DT, 3-4 DE, he is too tall, and too light. He really did not have wow factor game tape, and is a player better known for his potential.

    Colts would be smarter taking someone at 34 instead of trading up to get this guy.
    Why so SERIOUS

    I'm not overly keen of giving up a lot to move up 5-10 spots. They're talking like giving up 2-3 picks. That's a bit crazy... there are starting NFL players who don't fetch a 5th rounder in trades.... to give up 2-3 picks above that for an unproven guy who's never played a down in the NFL is a little bit ludicrous. I'd be more receptive if we gave up like... a 4th-5th rounder and our 2nd round pick. Anything beyond that is just silliness.
    There are two types of quarterbacks in the league: Those whom over time, the league figures out ... and those who figure out the league.

    I'd say no thanks myself. We can get good players in our draft spots and we have many needs that can be addressed in the draft at the spots we have right now. Why move up a few spots down to the mid-end of the first round when we can get similar talent at 34 without losing picks.

    Yeah I'd say no thanks too and hang on to the picks. When you do a total rebuild, the more draft picks the better.
