View Full Version : So fellow Colts fans... who do you hope we draft?

Personally I can't decide between offensive line or defensive line.... but who do you all much-more-knowledgeable-than-me people think?

Here's my post from another thread:

I would count the draft a win if we came out of it with one from each of the following categories:

Charles Brown (1st)
Trent Williams (1st)
Mike Iupati (1st)
Jason Fox (2nd or later)
Jared Veldheer (2nd or later)
Vladimir Ducasse (2nd or later)
Roger Saffold (2nd or later)

Brandon Graham (1st, unlikely)
Jerry Hughes (1st or trade up for early 2nd)
Jason Worilds (2nd or later)
Greg Hardy (3rd or later)
Arthur Moats (3rd or later)
Alex Carrington (3rd or later)
O'Brien Schofield (4th or later)
Daniel Teo-Nesheim (5th or later)

Brian Price (1st or trade up for early 2nd)
Jared Odrick (1st or trade up for early 2nd)
Lamarr Houston (2nd)
Arthur Jones (3rd or later)
Geno Atkins (3rd or later)
Vince Oghobaase (5th or later)

I would also be happy with two potential starting linemen and a pass rushing DE. I don't have a lot of confidence that John Chick will do anything on this team.

I'd be ecstatic if Iupati fell to us, I think he'd be perfect. I've also heard really good things about Pouncey.... but I agree with your list, I'd be happy with pretty much any of those guys.

Charles Brown is the guy I am starting to think / hope we can get in the first. I think Lamarr Houston would be great and I would also love Geno Atkins later on as I think he could be a stud for us. We draft 2 DL last year, but Taylor was cut and Moala is not pulling up any trees so I could see it happening. Going off of the values that Killswitch posted above, a draft of

Brown, Lamarr Houston, Greg Hardy and Geno Atkins with a later round CB with some return ability would leave me a very very very happy man :D

Ideally, Brandon Graham or one of the Top 5 OTs, but realistically, some combination of a pass rushing DE, penetrating UT, and fortification of the OL would leave me happy. A couple scenarios I like:

Scenario 1:
1) DE Jerry Hughes
2) OT Jared Veldheer
3) DT Geno Atkins
4) OG Ciron Black (not a typo)

Scenario 2:
1) OT Charles Brown/Vladimir Ducasse
2) DT Lamarr Houston
3) OG Mike Johnson
4) DE Lindsey Witten

After that, it's all bottom of the roster stuff, CBs, maybe a LB, etc. By the way, is it just me, or Vladimir Ducasse remind anyone else of Tarik Glenn? Any time I look at tape of him or read a report on him, Glenn comes to mind immediately.

I had to draft for your guys nasty ass team in the forum mock
I gave you hughes in round 1.

04-19-2010, 05:23 PM
You did well for the first 2 rounds, but a slow, unspectacular S in round 3? I am disappoint.

04-21-2010, 03:32 PM
I only did the first round. The 2nd and 3rd round I was away.

I only did the first round. The 2nd and 3rd round I was away.

I stand by my statement. Draft a DT or OG next round.

Charles Brown would look good in Colts' uniform.

I can't help but be intrigued by Mays, but he's not as good of a player as he is an athlete.

04-23-2010, 01:46 PM
I'm guessing either OT or CB in the 2nd, and DT or overall BPA in the 3rd. Crossing my fingers for Lamarr Houston and Jared Veldheer or Bruce Campbell and Geno Atkins tonight.

04-23-2010, 01:49 PM
No on Mays?

Or he won't make it to us?

04-23-2010, 01:49 PM
Any one of those would be sweet. Maybe Neal in the 3rd, like Scott has it in the Mock.

04-23-2010, 04:31 PM
I wanted a DE much later, depth only, not a rd1 pick IMO. I would have went with Brown
