    Irsay hinting at picking Barkley

    I understand we need a better line, i also understand we need a dominate pass rusher and the RB postion isn't the our biggest need in anyway, but how long did we go without a 1,000 yard rusher? Wasnt it like 4 or 5 years, and even then it took signing an ageing Frank Gore to do it. People say you can get a 3 down back in later rounds, and you can but its not a gaurented thing. With Lucks shoulder and his return uncertian added to the fact that we have the 3rd pick and I am much more open to taking a RB this year. Positional value g as its place, but i think when your picking this high and have a chance to get the best player there is at at position that changes a bit...it's why I also wouldn't mind getting Nelson even though position value for gaurds is in the same boat. I honestly just wamt us to get a dominate player, really dont care what he plays

    Colts Training Camp 7/31/17

    From what I saw of Mack on Sunday it has to be because of pass protection, he looked good running and catching, but that can not be said for his pass protection...on one play in particular he was completely lost and he ended the play facing the QB, like he was going to sack him...it was real ugly...and the few other times he was in pass protection it was not much better.

    Colts Training Camp Open Practice Thread (7/30/17)

    From what I saw, he looked really solid running and catching the ball today...really shifty ...did carry it loose a couple times it seemed, but otherwise has great burst, showed some good foot work on a spin move in a crowed area, and was able to get small up the middle to pop out the other side...the only knock I would give him on the day was pass protection, on a few plays he was absolutely lost out their and when he did seem to know what to do he was still very slow getting to his man. But given he's a rookie that's to expected...all in all I thought it was a good day for him.
  4. I think Stewart actually has the talent to become a starter

    Who do you think our sleeper pick is?

    I'm leaning toward Grover at this point. I just have feeling this guy is going to ball out.

    Who's your starting defense?

    Has anyone seen an update on Geathers health?

    Who falls to the colts

    I think it's got to be CB if who ever's available is even close to BPA. I wouldn't be upset with the same thinking in the 3rd either. We may not end up with a dominant pass rushers but our secondary could quickly become a major strength and with the LB's we have brought in I think we'd definitely be getting some coverage sacks at the least. And as long as the O-line progresses as expected we could be in a position next year to really gamble and jump up and grab a great edge rusher. Lots of if's in this but the coverage route is definitely something that I think can be an effective strategy.

    Colts select Malik Hooker [Merge]

    Yes Butler tracks the ball well, but I don't think any one would describe Butlers ability as an ELITE skill, really I don't think anything that anyone does on this defense would be described as ELITE skill...that alone should make you feel better.

    Colts select Malik Hooker [Merge]

    I think that greatly depends on Green himself, if he takes that leap he could easily be starting towards the end of the year beging of next year..for now I think he plays in sub-packages and as relief for any injuries and of course special teams. He may never be nothing more than that and his second contract would reflect his real value, but with Hooker & a healthy Geathers he doesn't HAVE to be anything more than a solid back-up for now.

    It could be said the other way too, that those CB's were good because they knew they had Hooker over the top...basically the same argument people make about Sherman and Thomas.

    Colts & the 15th Pick

    My hope is 4QB's, 2RB's, 1 WR and 1 TE all go before our pick....that would be BEAUTIFUL!!

    Christiam McCaffrey's Value

    I think of it like this, if you have a chance to draft Edge you do it, but if you had to choose between Edge and Freeny, it's clear you go Freeny
