That attitude, and the fire he's shown week in and week out, is what this defense has been missing for some time. I've hesitated to say this throughout the season, but this kid just keeps getting better and better: Ballard may have found the next Ray Lewis.
So long as his murdering has to do with the guy with the ball...

Hopefully by the end of the season, we can have that debate about whether Leonard or Smith is the best 2nd round pick the Colts have had in ages!

2017 - CB Quincy Wilson
2016 - FS T.J. Green
2015 - None
2014 - OL Jack Mewhort
2013 - None
2012 - TE Coby Fleener
2011 - OT Ben Ijalana
2010 - LB Pat Angerer
2009 - DT Fili Moala
2008 - OG Mike Pollak
2007 - OT Tony Ugoh
2006 - CB Tim Jennings
2005 - CB Kelvin Hayden
2004 - SS Bob Sanders
2003 - SS Mike Doss
2002 - DT Larry Triplett
2001 - FS Idrees Bashir
2000 - LB Marcus Washington
1999 - LB Mike Peterson
1998 - WR Jerome Pathon

Holy Crud, there is some BAD value in those 2nd round picks.

Pro bowler Bob Sanders

Solid starters in Peterson, Washington, Bashir, Doss, Hayden, Fleener and Mewhort

But only one "hit" in the last five draft classes in Mewhort.

Bad value by Polian and Grigson.

Hopefully, Ballard makes up for all that mess!

Walk Worthy,

Ugoh? That's a name I haven't heard in a long time.

Only about a 5lb difference if that. Overall production has nothing to do with size anyways.

Hopefully he will have the career that one day teams are hoping to find the next Darius Leonard

Lewis didnít shoot his first person until year 4, so there is still time for Leonard. Letís not call him a bust yet.

Give Polian a break. Picking at the bottom of the 2nd is like picking at the top of the 3rd. He found two gems

2005 - CB Kelvin Hayden
2004 - SS Bob Sanders

Mike Peterson and Tim Jennings actually ended up fairly productive NFL players as well, just not with the Colts for most of it.
