Candidates to replace Chapman's spot from other teams' PS

18 posts in this topic

Marcus Forston - 6'1", 301 (Pats PS, he went to the U)

Alameda Ta'amu - 6'3", 348 (Steelers PS)

Rob Callaway - 6'5", 312 lbs (Cowboys PS)

Chigbo Anunoby - we know him :) (Redskins PS)

Jordan Miller - 6'2", 315 lbs (Packers PS)

Hebron Fangupo - 6'1", 323 lbs (Seahawks PS)

Thoughts on any of these???

Alameda Ta'amu and Chigbo Anunoby make the most sense. Ta'amu is probably not likely due to his legal problems.

Since the replacement is really for Moala at DE (Chapman hasn't played anyway), I'd guess they don't add a NT. Just my two cents. Although DL depth does become a concern. Any chance Freeney goes to DL, Hughes starts opposite Mathis, and we see another position added?

We're thin (no pun intended) at both spots with Fili and Chapman on IR. But we probably have less talent at NT.

Agreed, I'm just thinking the rotation at NT doesn't change with Chapman's injury, since he was never in it. But you are right, the DL now needs the body in all likelihood.

I'd go with Marcus Forston for two reasons: 1) he's a 3-4 DE with a lot of athletic ability, and we've put two DEs on the IR in the last couple of weeks, and 2) I'd like the Colts to steal him from the Pats right when the Pats are getting low on DEs. Since we get a roster spot from Moala and Chapman, I'd probably also re-sign either Chigbo or Nick Jean-Baptiste.

Not bad.

Whats going on with nicholas jean baptiste? Maybe worth playing.

Signed to PS on 9/18, released on 10/3, so he's a FA I believe. I'd think if the Colts saw something they liked, he would still be on the PS.

Here is what I would consider after giving it some thought and not rushing an answer:

I would use multiple formations like we do now 4-3, 3-4 and 5-2

4-3 alignment would be this

RE-Freeney

DT-Anunoby

DT-Ta'amu (If he proves to have his head on straight which I doubt)

LE-Mathis

olb's

Conner-He was an OLB in college so he is familiar with that position

Hughes

ILB-Freeman, Fokou-better run stuffer and heavy hitter then Angerer

3-4

DE-Redding

NT-Johnson/Tevasue rotate

DE-Not sure maybe Guy

OLB's

Mathis

Hughes

ILB's

Freeman

Fokou

5-2

DE-Redding

DT-Ta'amu

NT-Antonio Johnson/Tevasue

DT-Anunoby

DE-Matthews/Lawrence/Geathers

LB's-Freeman, Fokou

Thats all if we picked Anunoby up and Ta'amu combined with Moala and Chapman being injured

Did anyone watch Washington Huskies football games while Ta'amu was playing? That defense, and run D in particular, was horrific. Or wonder how a fourth round draft pick never gets on the field? Or are concerned about 14 criminal counts and a likely guilty plea coming? I get it's hard to find reasonably athletic 350 pound men who have played 3-4 NT. But I've never understood the love for Ta'amu. Or Baptiste for that matter. They were the anchors of some of the worst defenses in all of BCS football. And Baptiste is a FA, and Ta'amu nearly was too, as he cleared waivers to get to the Steelers PS.

Anunoby for NT makes sense and like someone else said, Marcus Forston or Jordan Miller for 3-4 DE.

    • https://www.youtube.com/shared?ci=4wVAee2z-aE   I don't mean to sound condescending or insulting. But its frustrating to me how hard it is to scout for one, and how often people are wrong. I'm wrong about expectations from players sometimes, and but with the exception of alshon Jeffries, my scouting predictions have been really good for about 7 years.    My favorite quote was saying morris Claiborne was a bumb and I put Casey heywars as my top 3 corner in the draft when about 6 or 7 were in front of him. I think he was my 2nd. Not to brag or nothing.    But if you dont see a bigger, and somehow stronger Dwight freeney out of this dude, I dont know what to tell you. This is an easy pick up, no trade needed at 15. He a day one starter   
    • Oh yeah genius. How many times do you see qbs, especially at WVU getting sacked in wildcat offenses. Its designed to get rid of the ball in seconds.    You can't judge of one game, and he played with a very high motor. Which is more than I van say about bejorn, give up on the play warner.    You guys are really that blind you can't see the Shir speed and acceleration off the snap?    You can't see the force and quickness of his spin moves?   You can't see his knack for rushin hands up.    You can't see the power in his bullrush? Are you kidding me?   And BTW, this is a breakdown video of every play he was involved in.   This is not a highlight tape. Highlight tapes are for kids. Breakdown videos are for ametuer nfl scouts. Real scouts have all the film.    Let me post a highlight video so you can see the differnce
    • I think it would also help to see if converted players (went from a 4-3 DE to a 3-4 OLB, or vice versa) are riskier choices than players who stay in the same system. 
    • He's also noted for his coverage ability. But yeah I need to see what he does at the combine first. 
    • I agree. Like i said i have no issue in drafting a DE if it is BPA, just that i wouldnt single out the position as a "major need". I think it is definitely a need, but not on the same level as olb at the moment. Not to the same level where that if there was 1 olb and 1 de of similar grade available at our pick that i would choose the de over the olb. To me, for it to be a major need it would have to be to the point where i would be very unhappy if nothing was done at the position by the end of the offseason. I could live with DE position as it is. But I  would be livid if maggitt and Ayers are our starting OLBs week 1.   I think we are basically in agreement and just getting caught up in semantics. We are saying the same thing, im just on the left of it looking right and you are on the right looking left (if that makes any sense).
