Steven Ridley’s 2018 NFL Mock Draft

With the sixth pick in the 2018 Steven Ridley NFL Mock Draft, the Indianapolis Colts select:

Saquon Barkley; Running Back from Pennsylvania State University.

Now Colts fans, I do understand that Quenton Nelson is just screaming to be the pick here.. and I mean screaming. However, let us go back as to what made the Indianapolis Colts one of the greatest offensive dynasties of the 2000s. Peyton Manning, Marvin Harrison/Reggie Wayne and Edgerian James were arguably the top trio of the decade. Defenses generally fell to their knees in wake of their immense power. Seeing this, new GM Chris Ballard seeks this opportunity to right the ship for not just Andrew Luck but for the Colts as a whole in Barkley. Realistically, there really is not much that Barkley can do. What I would love for him to do though is stop having a phenomenon known as “Barry Sanders Syndrome” where he attempts to make something from an already defeated down. Another issue I have with him is his power.. or lack of as I do not see engage on contact like I did with Ezekiel Elliot or even Derrius Guice this year. Despite these quibbles, Ballard gets his ‘back and Andrew Luck gets a breather after being pounded for so long as Barkley will take most of the beating but also being a reliable pass protector and a rock solid receiving option.

About Steven Ridley

A Canadian loving gamer and analytical American Football fan; Steven has turned to the Black 'n Gold since the days of seeing Troy Amuna Polamalu way back in 2008. Since then, he has been getting more engaged with the sport. In addition of studying the aspects of the game, college prospect scouting is one of his favorite pastimes.

    strength in the world means very little if your accuracy is not very good. Knowing this however is why Josh Allen is the number one pick as Dorsey is using 2018 as a redshirt year for Allen to learn the do’s and do not’s of the NFL. Once 2019 is here is where Dorsey and the Browns will hopefully see the fruition of a year’s worth of experience.

    IF – AND IT’S A BIG “IF” – Mason Rudolph has a big day versus Baltimore the Steelers may have found theit franchise QB and it isn’t KP8. Mason’s been a hard luck guy since he was deafted and Ben was “insulted.” Ben is no rocket scientist but his physical gifts, history and hope combined to make Rudolph an afterthought for years.. Staing ready to play plus maturity may have combined to make MASON THE successor to Ben the Steelers truly need. If so, it settles a big question for the Pittsburgh Steelers.
