This is how you end up missing out on a QB, year after year.Maybe the Texans do not see any of the QBs in this year's draft have the franchise QB potential but they do see the opportunity to fleece the Colts for a king's ransom.
This could be the way.If we sign Ben Jones and re-sign Will Hernandez...that is good progress. Still need to add a young one if around.
I know we talk about just drafting a bunch of rookie OL, but it's not really a feasible strategy. Target the one we want and get him, even if we have to trade up into the back of round 1 to get him. Sign an OL or two. We also have a few young guys to try out. The OL won't be perfect this year, but it will give them time to work together.Depends on FA, but I might only want one OL in the first three rounds.
Oh is it entirely dependent on the Indy GM? If Colts believed we truly were dangling that 3rd pick or bought in to our bluff, that won't change anything? Maybe they only like 1 of the 2 remaining QB's. Or maybe Colts don't care who they get? Perhaps we can explore all the multiverses of possibilities.
So now we are circling to Monti is able to accept a trade cause there is no downside for us getting to 4. Interesting. How did we get here again?
Oh right, an opinion piece exclaiming that we should get additional picks and then draft the best defensive player because the situation is ripe for the taking.

Dude he'll get to block for Justin fields on runs, and... Fields actually got better throwing the ball last year but honestly i think that's the kind of Wr the Bears probably needed to get, you can't go get a D Hop or someone like that because Fields just isn't good enough throwing the ball to make it cost effective. So get a guy like Moore who's good but not "elite".
Honestly it's such a perfect marriage between need and BPA that the only way I consider on missing out on Anderson is for a huge package of picks.
Ballard is a fairly conservative GM. It might cost him his job soon. He's a pretty darn good GM, but he has been loathe to take a major swing at QB.
At least one person thinks were now in the catbird seat:
So I guess it's welcome to AZ Will Anderson?
What if we could get a haul like CHI did for the #3 pick? Isn't it IND that seems pretty desperate to get into the top three?
Positional value is where you lose me.You can say this about most trade back moves though.
Trade back to 6, 7 or 9 and you can argue that Skoronski, Johnson, Carter or Gonzalez are a perfect marriage of need and BPA. We have a lot of needs.
Bryce & Teddy are nothing alike except being black.What I fear is that the Seahawks will become enamored with Anderson and just jump the Cardinals.
We have to hope that the Texans are really enamored with a QB. I know when you need one it's easy to fall in love with lesser guys, but if the Texans are smart, they will understand that Young is a very meh prospect at QB. I see him as a short Bridgewater.
Until you realize Arizona & Seattle are in the same division & Monti won’t risk a divisional rival trading up for a franchise QB or cornerstone EDGE nor Seattle would want to give up extra draft capital they would for a divisional rival compared to another team.The best trade back for the Cards is not with the Colts but with the Seahawks.
Geno's contract doesn't take them out of QB at all. It's really a 1 year deal. If they like one of the QBs they have to get above the Colts. If they don't take QB this year odds are they don't get near top 5 again.
And the Seahawks have a tonne of draft capital.
Round 1, Pick 5
Round 1, Pick 20
Round 2, Pick 37
Round 2, Pick 52
Round 3, Pick 83
Round 4, Pick 123
Round 5, Pick 153
Round 5, Pick 156
Round 6, Pick 198
I don't think the Colts take Will Anderson. The risk is that the Colts trade back with someone else that wants Anderson like the Falcons.
But trading back to 5 is the best mix of additional picks and a shot at Anderson.
