According to those draft profiles, Westerman might be the guy that's more "immediately pro ready." But when it comes to ability and potential, I see the remarks favoring Clark in a big way. Talked about having top 5 tackle ability and being a guy whos likely to be big time player in this league with some good coaching. The immediate time frame may favor Westerman, but the future favors Clark. When I read those I don't see them saying what you're saying at all!!!
Wow. We could have played Peyton 3 times a year (assuming he took them to the playoffs) that would have been interesting...
Both Draft Profiles. Anyway outside of bench press for O Linemen I could care less what the other results are. Also your right that I was not sold on Ansah (as a pass rusher) and that I thought he was raw and wasn't a 1st round prospect. He went in the 1st and balled out. I was wrong, Not the first time or last time.
I agree that in general if the organization likes a player then you take him no matter what and don't look back. I'm 100% on board with that idea. As a matter of fact I don't dislike the pick at all. I don't dislike the player. I DO however believe that we could have had a better player who I also believe will be a better player long-term as well. I have no problem with them drafting Clark...None at all since they clearly were not as high on Westerman (Even though again he is the superior prospect with the exception of arm length.). I hope Clark fulfills the potential but at O Line I would have taken Westerman who could have immediately challenged Thornton (and played out at RT replacing Reitz in the next year or so if he showed he could not drive block well in the run game at RG.....which again was a weakness of his in college).
Don't be surprised if the Bengals give Westerman a shot at C or RT at first. They have holes at both spots so he very well could see time early. Winston is winding down his career and was bad at RT last year and Bodine was bad last year at Center though is still young and has 2 years left on his rookie contract
Hello my Name is Robin. And i'm from Denmark. even though i've been member on this forum for a long time, and the old one as well. I would like to Introduce myself. I became a Colts fan in 2007, when I watched my first NFL game. My brother introduced me to NFL, the superbowl between Colts & Bears, And as we all know the Bears scored first, so I had to rude for the "underdogs".. and from that day on I was hooked. I've watched every game since, even the primetime games, that starts 2:30 in Denmark, it's a long day working with no sleep but damn its worth it. Can't wait for my next big Colts adventure, when I get to see them playing in London
I have been a fan since 1984 when I became an early teen and really started to understand the game. Colts moved to Indianapolis in 1984 and eventhough we stunk for a while, things obviously got better. We traded for Dickerson in 1987 and won the Division, then we had Harbaugh's magical season in 1995, the Peyton ERA where winning 12 games was a piece of cake + winning a SB in 2006, now the Andrew ERA where we have already had 3 11 win seasons and a deep Playoff run.
