Whenever I read stuff like your first two paragraphs I seriously wonder about how you process information......
Let's just say we'll have to agree to disagree........ because I don't want to get into it with you and crash the darn website!! (Sigh.....)
We aren't talking about wr here. An O Linemans measurable wont make THAT much of a difference....including arm length consistently enough. Tony Ugoh had far better measurables in just about every category and they sure did not help him. Now he went in the 2nd round but was also talked about as a possible 1st rounder (Clark was talked about by some as a 1st-2nd round pick...again as was Ugoh.). His measurables sure did not help him. He can move well (Clark) but relies to much on his long arms.
Now I do think he has a shot but that has nothing to do with measurables and more to the fact that he is mobile. He really doesn't have a higher ceiling because of measurable...not at the O Line position anyway. He has a high ceiling because of his mobility...which don't always translate to the Combine. Lower floor because he has so much to learn.
I don't mind that he was picked in the 3rd even though I saw him as a 4th rounder. I mind that their was better players in the 3rd we could have had. If he was the BPA in the 3rd (apparently he was on the Colts board seemingly based on measurables more than anything else the way the Colts scouts talked) then take him, which the Colts did. I dont fault the Colts brass at all for going with who they thought was apparently BPA......I fault them for apparently thinking HE WAS the BPA.
Hopefully he works out and eventually replaces Reitz when he retires or starts playing bad. I'd love it if that happened.....However I think the odds are much higher Clark is talked about as another Grigson bust. We can revisit this in 4 years and if I'm wrong I'll make a board about it and publicly admit how bad I whiffed on Clark...I might forget but I sincerely hope someone reminds me if I do. I do however feel I'm best at scouting O Linemen (Though I whiffed on Hayworth Hicks horribly as an undrafted FA in 2012...But I was really new then)
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.
