INDIANAPOLIS — Indianapolis Colts general manager Chris Ballard keeps collecting draft chips.He figures it gives him better odds to hit it big.One year after moving back three spots in the first round and making four second-round selections Darius Leonard Jersey , Ballard did it again Thursday, sending the No. 26 overall pick to the Washington Redskins for two second-round picks. Indy will now select at No. 34, courtesy of last year’s deal with the New York Jets, at No. 46, thanks to the Redskins, and at No. 59 — their own pick — on Friday, plus they’ve added the Redskins’ second-round pick in 2020.“It was just a chance to pick up a 2020 second-round pick, we thought the value was good and we thought there was still good enough value to be there in the second round to move back,” Ballard said. “We think the ability of having three seconds, we thought that was the strength of how we had it lined up.”It’s all part of a plan.Ballard knew it would be difficult to replicate last year’s successes. He had five picks in the first two rounds, found starters with each of his first three choices and Indy’s first two selections — left guard Quenton Nelson and linebacker Darius Leonard — became the first rookie teammates to become first-team All-Pros since Gale Sayers and Dick Butkus with the Chicago Bears in 1965.At Monday’s pre-draft news conference, Ballard told reporters that the Colts had eight players targeted in the first round. And though he acknowledged some were still available when Indy went on the clock, he still opted for Plan B: Moving out of the first round for better value in the second.In fact Malik Hooker Jersey White , he hinted at the prospect of a trade when he joked with reporters that he might not speak again until Friday.“I kind of had a feeling (Monday), I don’t know why,” he said. “Sometimes you just have a feeling. I had a feeling we would have a chance to get out and it would be the best thing for us long term.”He may not be finished dealing, either. In three seasons with the Colts, he has now made eight trades involving draft picks, though he knew this one might not be well-received.“We’ve got a room full of people, we’ve got you all sitting here, I get it, everyone wants you to pick a player,” he said. “But I’m pretty patient. I don’t panic, we don’t panic, we stay true to what we’re looking at on the board.”The Colts now have 10 picks this weekend including their own third-rounder, No. 89 overall Womens Peyton Manning Jersey , on Friday.100View Gallery Gallery:View from the sidelines: NFL cheerleaders 2018Raj Mehta-USA TODAY Sports | Raj Mehta Week 7 kicks off Thursday night with a potential snore-fest in the Denver Broncos vs. the Arizona Cardinals. Denver’s defense has been lit up the last two weeks, so it’ll be interesting to see how a young offense around Josh Rosen, David Johnson and Christian Kirk fare at home.Indianapolis will play host to the Buffalo Bills and, unfortunately for the Colts’ defense, they will NOT be facing backup quarterback Nathan Peterman. With Josh Allen out and the former fifth-round pick from 2017 with three times as many interceptions than touchdowns, Buffalo head coach Sean McDermott will turn to the veteran Derek Anderson. The 35-year-old will be making his first start since 2016, when he went 0-2 replacing the injured Cam Newton with five interceptions and a QBR of 14.9.PFF’s ELO rating system — which grades a team based off how well they played against their opponent vs. how well they were expected to play — has Buffalo all the way down at No. 30. Indy is up three spots at No. 27.Around the rest of Sunday’s games, an intriguing battle to watch will be the rising power-run offense of New England vs. the stout defense of the Chicago Bears. An AFC South clash puts the Texans in Jacksonville to take on the tipping Jaguars. After being worn out by the Chiefs’ hot offense two weeks prior, the vaunted Jacksonville D was lit up by what’s commonly known as a subpar Dallas Cowboys’ offense. How the Jags respond against Deshaun Watson and his number of receivers will be a huge point in their early season.The Saints and the Ravens should make for an exciting contest. New Orleans has one of the most complete offenses, while the Ravens’ defense is coming of an 11-sack performance against the Buffalo O-line. In what should an easy victory for LA, we’ll also get to see some of the brightest offensive minds in football square off in the late afternoon when Kyle Shanahan and his 49ers unit takes on Sean McVay and possible the best roster in football.Sunday Night Football has the Chiefs and the Bengals, with a Kansas City team ready to move on from its first loss of the year against a hard-hitting Bengals’ defense. Week 7 will then conclude with a Monday night clash between the New York Giants and Atlanta Falcons. Injuries have plagued this Atlanta team, and this might be a bad enough defense where Eli Manning can string together a series of good plays.With all that said Womens Malik Hooker Jersey , here are this week’s staff picks. Things are pretty tight up top in the standing, with Chris Shepherd having a three-game edge, but six guys sit between 44 correct picks and 38. For this week, we’ve got very few games in which we all agree upon, and several nearly split down the middle.Chris Shepherd: 47-30 / Brett Mock: 44-33 / Andrew Aziz: 44-33 / Chris Blystone: 44-33 / / Stephen Reed: 44-33/ Elliot Denton: 42-35 / Jared Malott: 38-39 / Zachary Hicks: 20-26 / Blake Pace: 0-0Thursday 8:20 pm ETBroncos (6) @ Cardinals | Contrarian: Blake Pace, Chris Shepherd, Stephen ReedSunday 9:30 am ETTitans @ ChargersSunday 1:00 pm ETBills @ ColtsBrowns (5) @ Buccaneers | Contrarians: Pace, Jared Malott, Shepherd, Brett MockLions (5) @ Dolphins | Contrarians: Pace, Aziz, Shepherd, Malott Panthers @ Eagles (6) | Contrarians: Pace Andrew Luck Jersey White , Denton, Zachary HicksPatriots (7) @ Bears | Contrarians: Denton, Chris BlystoneTexans @ Jaguars (7) | Contrarians: Denton, Jared MalottVikings @ JetsSunday 4:05 pm ETSaints @ Ravens (5) | Contrarians: Pace, Mock, Malott, ReedSunday 4:25 pm ETCowboys (7) @ Redskins | Contrarians: Shepherd, BlystoneRams @ 49ersSunday 8:20 pm ETBengals @ Chiefs (8) | Contrarians: BlystoneMonday 8:15 pm ETGiants @ Falcons (8) | Contrarians: PaceWhat are your picks for Week 5?
