In our 2017 NFL mock draft, we based the order on the actual current order at the regular season. We sorted the playoff teams based on how we’re predicting the NFL playoffs will shape out. The NFL breaks ties in draft order by reverse order of strength of schedule. Thus we don’t know for sure who will be picking #14 and #15 between Indianapolis and Minnesota’s pick (which is owned by Philadelphia), as the NFL has not confirmed the order officially.Follow paulmbanks
In our 2017 NFL mock draft, we based the order on the actual current order as of December 21st, with some good help from our friends at NFL Trade Rumors.
Team needs were sometimes, but not always taken into account, as team needs are a very fluid situation. Merry Christmas! Happy Holidays! Season’s Greetings, Happy Kwanza, Joyous Hannukah, Joy Noel, Make the Yuletide gay and a warm festivus for the rest of us.Follow paulmbanks

Former Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Reggie Wayne had many fruitful years with Peyton Manning. From an on the field perspective, Wayne knows Manning about as well as anybody.
Appearing on the NFL Network’s Sunday morning preview show NFL Gameday Morning, Reggie Wayne provides some insight into what “Omaha” means.Follow paulmbanks
This 2016 NFL mock draft order is loosely based off the order derived at SB Nation. They took current record plus strength of schedule into account. We then made a few changes based on how current injuries could impact the team and their final season record.
Team needs were sometimes, but not always taken into account. We played fast and loose with that because it’s still quite early. So many of these picks are “Best player available.”Follow paulmbanks
During the NFL Midseason Report Conference Call, analysts Bill Cowher, Kurt Warner, Steve Mariucci, and Phil Simms weighed in on a number of NFL-related topics. It’s been a year of intrigue in regards to quarterbacks, and the immediate questions in the call reflected that. Especially regarding two signal callers, both of which reside in a “South” division.
Jameis Winston’s improvements and Andrew Luck’s recent struggles quickly surfaced as talking points, with Warner addressing the former.Follow paulmbanks
Rough times indeed for quarterback Andrew Luck, Chuck Pagano and the rest of the Indianapolis Colts. Pagano could be sacked any day now, but there’s lot of blame to spread around when it comes to the Colts woes. Likewise with Luck. He’s had problems, but to place all the fault with him is to be rather misguided.Follow paulmbanks
It’s been over a week and we’re still talking about what might be the dumbest decision that Indianapolis Colts Head Coach Chuck Pagano has ever made in his otherwise distinguished career.
And yes, it really was the dumbest play call in football history. Here it is again:Follow paulmbanks
Facebook and Twitter blew up last night over the Indianapolis Colts attempt to run some sort of trick play against the New England Patriots. It failed massively, and EVERYBODY ripped the Colts, and Colts Coach Chuck Pagano for calling it. Deservedly so too!
We all took shots at the Indianapolis Colts, here’s mine:Follow paulmbanks
Former Indianapolis Colts and New York Jets quarterback Jack Trudeau was arrested Sunday night in Zionsville, Indiana. He now faces three charges: OWI (operating while intoxicated), public intoxication and intimidating a police officer. Trudeau might be best known in this region of the country as the QB of the 1984 Rose Bowl Illinois Fighting Illini team.
That should have been a badge of honor, but it carries with it a dubious distinction now. The 1983 Illini were and always will be the only team to go 9-0 against the rest of the Big Ten in a single season when the league was actually ten teams.Follow paulmbanks
