There's a draft preview, why are we still using the 2017 thread?

John Franklin-Myers is a small school sleeper I hope the Colts pick up on Day 3. Looks like he could be a good fit at DE/UT in this scheme.

John Dorsey says that "hand size" is important in his evaluation of a QB for Cleveland. Another potential sign indicating Allen may be his guy.

I'm trying to figure out what Dorsey is trying to gain right now by not stating who the pick is. Is he trying to get the Giants to tip their hand about pick #2?

Ballard's presser. A few interesting nuggets:

1) They considered how many premium players there were before trading back to 6. Said they assumed two QBs off the board and there were at least 4 premium players they would be happy with at 6.
2) Says they identified a few more premium players after the trade. Says there are 8 outside of the QBs.
3) Thinks the EDGE depth is good in this draft in rounds 2-4.
4) Says John Simon will be a DE in this defense (RE).
5) They got some calls about Brissett, but Ballard values the depth he provides.
6) Says Colts are open to trading up into the bottom of Rd 1.

Two big indications to me they donít have a huge interest in Chubb, even at 6. Edmunds or Smith seem much more likely if they stay at 6.

Agree on the last, but don't agree that they aren't interested in Chubb. I think Ballard is assuming Chubb is gone.

Yep, agreed. Or he's creating advance cover in the event that Chubb isn't available at 6 - he can tell everyone he didn't need or want Chubb anyways. I feel like these last few weeks before the draft are such a mind game.

The other thing I read into his comments is that he'd like to trade down with Buffalo. Isn't it curious that they recently bumped up the number of the non-QB "premium" players to 8? When you add that to the 4 QBs widely thought to be picked in the first 10 picks, that means that the Colts could safely trade down as low as pick 12, which, conveniently enough, is Buffalo's first pick.
