I don't think Pep had the best understanding of the Air Coryal offense. They ran the West Coast offense at Stanford. He tried to blend the two together but ultimately it didn't work out. Having a bad line didn't help matters either, but it's your job as the OC to scheme the offense to fit the circumstances as best you can.
I didn't hear that. NFL network said it was the right pick.
In fact before the pick came in they said. . . something like "Colts are on the clock. . . Ryan Kelly guys?" And the other two guys both said "Ryan Kelly".
Chud is considered to be a deep ball, long route guy, himself, from what I hear. But the difference between him and Pep is that Chud understand the NFL better, IMO. You have to run different things to set up deep ball and long route success. You can't just keep running them every pass play.
