That's because their franchise QB quit football in his prime. Not sure they saw that one coming when they picked Nelson. 

The NFL is uncertain.  You make picks based on that.  EDGE, DB, QB, OT, DL.  In today's NFL, those are the only acceptable positions to pick top 10.

For those curious, Elgton Jenkins currently has a PFF grade of over 75.  Higher than Quenton Nelson's at this point last year. 

Bradbury has a PFF grade of under 60. 

This isn't to say that Jenkins will be better than Nelson or that Badbury will bust and Jenkins will be a hit.  Just a reminder that guards are one of the easiest positions in the NFL to hit on in the 2nd-7th rounds. 

This is why I got so angry with people who wanted Nelson last year.  Nelson is definitely good, but the Colts now have a guard as the foundation of their team and no franchise QB to protect. 

To be fair who  knew Andrew Luck was gonna retire out of nowhere?

Nobody, but that’s still my point.  Nothing is guaranteed in the NFL.  Draft a guard to protect your franchise QB, lose your franchise QB and you’ve got a guard.

The reason Luck is retired is that he didn't have a line in front of him and the Colts just watched him take shot after shot, year after year.  

the Colts took the best player available who happens to line up against JJ Watt twice a year.  I dont think they regret having the best guard in the game on their team.

I was sitting at a bar with the head of PR from Luck's agency when it leaked out and he was shocked.

You must not have watched a lot of Packer football last year. The Packers had poor guard play in 2018 for the first time in many years. It significantly hurt the Packers offense.

Now, in 2019, the Packers invested an early mid 2nd round pick and a modest FA contract on new starting guards. Those investments look very prudent.

Now we're basically back to being one injury away at any position from needing to start a bad player. 

Any specifics?

Patrick started the last four games last year and wasn't a bad player. Why would he be a bad starter this year? Light may have been the MVP of camp. Why would he be a bad starter?

Frankly, Taylor hasn't been good since 2017. So, a bad starter on the OL wouldn't be anything new.

I’d have a hard time ever taking a guard, but I thought Hockenson was a good pick. An elite TE is better than a bust DL

It's fine to think the value of Guards in the NFL is so low you shouldnt draft one top 10. And I agree. I just think it's kind of ridiculous to think they shouldnt draft a Guard because of the off chance of their franchise QB retiring.

The point is that guards are easier to find than other positions and thus warrant less draft capital. Your post is a perfect example of this.
