4. If you could take one player from the Jaguars to put on the Colts, who would you take?
"Allen Robinson might be the obvious choice. I was a big fan of his in college (and watched him repeatedly torch IU and Purdue when I covered those schools). But when the Colts receivers are healthy, they’re among the best in the NFL. Considering the season he’s had so far, and the Colts’ ineptitude at the position, it’s linebacker Telvin Smith. The Colts are old and slow at inside linebacker and Smith is fantastic in both run support and coverage. He would fill a clear need and give the Colts a dynamic player on defense. I wouldn’t say no to Jalen Ramsey either though."
Every other blogger has taken Allen Robinson when presented this question, so it’s refreshing to see one of the guys take arguably the best player on the team right now. The Jacksonville defense has flashed despite some inconsistencies, and the best player of the bunch right now is Telvin Smith. He’s improved in coverage and is still an elite run defender. He’d be a big boost for a Colts defense that desperately needs sideline-to-sideline speed and some playmakers.
