You also said that Te'o has the ability to run a sub 4.4 40. You are still wrong.

Anyone who has watched ND play with an unbiased eye. That statement... :facepalm:

There are no words for how ridiculous that statement is, even after he had a season with a few lucky INTs and a good team.

I think your down playing Te'o a bit too much. He is a superb player who the Colts won't have a chance of getting anyways so I guess as of now this thread is kind of a moot point.

You gotta give the kid some credit though, one of the best LBs out there and I do think he will have a shot to be a top LB in the pros.

The guy is an absolute physical freak.

He won't be a top LB in the pros. He's an okay prospect who has has many lucky interceptions. Not impressed by him at all. Watching him struggle to get off any blocks at all, his inconsistent tackling, lack of athleticism, lack of any pass rush moves, etc. says he isn't a great prospect, just a good story.

As for the bold- What?

I think we'll all be very surprised if Ogletree is rated higher than Teo....    Very,.

 

Ogeltree maybe good,  but I don't think he's close to being **that** good.

 

Just my two cents...

You may be right, but as of now, your view is at sharp odds with people who do this for a living.   They seem to view Teo in the exact opposite way.

 

They see him on par with Keuchly.   His one perceived weakness going into this year was pass coverage.   He dropped 8-10 pounds and picked off 7 passes.    Now he's viewed as a 3-down inside linebacker who doesn't have to come off the field.  

 

I wouldn't bet on him not being a top ILB in the pros.

Teo is a "great" college football LBr.      This season, he had the BEST DL in NCAA football in front of him.,.      L Nix is the true STAR of that D.

 

But that said... ALL great MLBrs are only as good as their interior D.    And that is simply a fact.

 

Buyer beware...

In our D, Manti Te'o might be a WLB if Freeman continues to play at his level. Angerer or Conner might become dispensable then, IMO.

So, if this season, the reason he was so good was that he had a great DL in front of him...

 

What is the excuse why he was so good as a Freshman, Sophomore and Junior?    Because the defense in front of him in those years wasn't as good as this year's DL.

It was this season that his stock skyrocketed. He was a late first rounder before the hype began. Unfortunately for some team, said team will listen to the hype and take him way too high.

I could see Teo going anywhere from 7th(Buffalo seriously needs a ILB) to late first to where Baltimore will need there future ILB, The combo of Suggs, Teo, Mcclain or Upshaw, Kruger could be a very good Linebacker core going forward if Suggs returns to his usual form next year and if Lewis retires, if Lewis dont then put Teo next to Lewis for a year and try rotating Upshaw in with Kruger

Actually Stephon Tuitt is the best player on their defense.

I think Alec Ogletree would make a good tandem with Jerrel Freeman.  Ogletree needs to put on a couple more pounds though I think

I think if the draft were tomorrow he'd be drafted top 5 either by someone in the top 5 or someone trading into the top 5.

 

By April, who knows.

    • That article was fascinating and inspiring. Thanks for sharing it and thanks to all the people involved in training service dogs.  I had no idea about any of this
    • I think the players being on the field for the anthem started in 2009. He could change that but it probably would not set well with the players and the media could jump "racist" in a heartbeat. This protest looks silly with only a couple players out of the whole team taking a knee.
    • The Indianapolis Colts today elevated tackle Jeremy Vujnovich to the 53-man roster from the practice squad.  Vujnovich, 6-5, 300 pounds, has spent the entire season on the Colts practice squad. He participated in Indianapolis’ 2016 offseason program and training camp before being waived during final cuts on September 3. Vujnovich spent the last two seasons on the Green Bay Packers practice squad. He originally signed with the Packers as an undrafted free agent on January 7, 2014.   Collegiately, Vujnovich started 28-of-29 career games at Louisiana College from 2009-2012. As a senior in 2012, he earned First Team American Southwest Conference honors, Second Team All-Louisiana recognition by the Louisiana Sports Writers Association and Second Team All-South Region accolades by D3football.com after starting 10 games at left tackle. In 2011, Vujnovich started nine games at left tackle and earned First Team ASC honors. As a sophomore in 2010, he earned All-ASC honorable mention honors after starting nine games at left tackle. Vujnovich saw action in one game as a true freshman in 2009. View the full article
    • Clearly the Jags have not lived up to the preseason hype and the Colts are not living up to their expectations. On paper the Jags aren't missing the players the Colts are but the Colts are showing a refusal to die and I see them coming out on top. Both teams need to get desperate to win with the now wounded duck Texans and this an AFC South game. It is impossible to ignore the potential of Lucks talent in a match up like this.
    • I became a Colts fan in 1984 when they came to Indy & took up residence in the Hoosier Dome later renamed The RCA Dome .   We had many up & down seasons eventually we had our first really good season that year Jim Harbaugh became our starting QB  we called him Captain Comeback & our Colts that season the Cardiac Colts it was a thrill ride till the very last play of the AFC Championship Game in 3 Rivers Stadium that year Indiana became a Football State for real it was awesome .   this is a link that you may enjoy ..   http://www.colts.com/news/article-1/COLTS-SEASON-IN-REVIEW--1995/03f1e9a8-74d7-48cd-9023-dce191257e68   Peyton Manning drafted in 1998 was seen as our next great hope & he did'nt disappoint but he did get off to a slow start .   Now with Andrew Luck I feel we are once again in great hands as in 98 our future looks bright ..

    • Welcome here Nils!   I can tell you, most of football fans in Hungary are Patriots fans...unfortunately. 
    • Hi, Nils here....   I know a lot of Europeans support the Patriots, but all I can say is no way man, no way!   I'm not entirely sure when I started to follow and cheer for the Colts, but I has no shame in admitting that it was when Manning begun to really shine. It was probably back in 1999 because I seem to remember that play-off game against the Titans.   I also remember the I loved how the Colts would play a beautiful offensive game whereas other teams were boring with their defensive strengths. Aaaahh, those were the days!   I was introduced to American Football during my American Politics/presidential election study in Washington D.C. in the fall of 1996 (Clinton vs Dole). Didn't really get attached to any team back then, so you can say that Redskins just left me totally uninspired.   It is a great and welcoming forum here - and that is just how I remembered America too.
