I'm not sure if you'd consider these guys big names, but here goes:

Jairus Byrd (S) - Buffalo

Felix Jones (RB) - Dallas (Who I think would be great here with Ballard, he just needs a good coach to push him to try)

Josh Cribbs (WR) - Cleveland

Connor Barwin (LB) - Houston

Tracy Porter (CB) - Denver

Delanie Walker (WR/TE) - San Fransisco

Antonio Rodgers-Cromartie (CB) - Philadelphia

Rey Maualuga (LB) - Cincinatti

LaRon Landry (S) - Washington

Glenn Dorsey (DL) - Kansas City

Jones dont need anyone to push him in my opinion, what he needs is to get the majority of the carries, Cant get yards if you dont get the number of carries(not sure why so many dont seem to understand that), 106 attempts through 14 games wont get it done, he does have a small fumble problem though

Felix Jones?  NOOOOOO..  that dude is Bob Sanders Jr..  always hurt.   

 

Indy is fine at RB...   maybe a big bruising stud but all in all I really like what they have. 

 

I would not mind seeing Brown come back, although he is not the personification of health.

Rey Maualuga (LB) - Cincinatti

LaRon Landry (S) - Washington

Glenn Dorsey (DL) - Kansas City

By big names, I mean people that if we go after, we will have to compete with the other 31 teams to get him (not literally all 31 other teams but you get what i mean), players where 2 or 3(max) teams will look to go after them ( I highlighted those where we will have tons of competition to get), hope that clears things up :)

No I wasn't suggesting Jones and I dont want Cribbs, he would be useless here, he is a glorified Punt and Kick Returner nothing else and we already have guys that can do that

Yeah, I meant Dominique :P

As for Jairus Byrd, I think he should be priority #1. He and Bethea would be scary in the defensive backfield.

we would have competition for Porter, Landry, Maualuga

Your right about them aswell, but at CB I'm ( like others) hoping Asomugha is cut from the eagles and we pick him up. For SS I would like someone like Jairus Byrd or Dashon Goldson. For ILB I think we won't need Maualuga cos its  Freeman and Angerer are actually not bad at ILB

I don't think the vast majority of the players listed here are "under the radar"....   I think most all of them are easily on most everyone's radar.

Here's a name way, Way, WAY under the radar.    I wasn't going to bring him up until the off-season and he won't generate any buzz or excitement here...   but I've kept an eye on him from a distance for several years.

 

He's Ramses Barden, a tall WR for the New York Giants.   I think that's an organization that has repeatedly demonstrated it knows personnel and especially knows WR's.

 

Now, he's never broken out.  He doesn't play much.   But, he's never been cut either, so I don't think of him as a bust.   He's been there 4-years and when he gets a chance, he produces.    He's 6'6" and 224.   A former 3rd round draft pick.   He'd be the Kris Adams we had (only better I think)  and I think we could get him for cheap.   Say, 2 years and $2 Mill total.   Who knows,  maybe even cheaper...

 

Here's his Bio:

I'm not expecting this to happen, and won't be disappointed if it doesn't.   But he's been high on my "under the radar' list for some time now.

Louis Delmas SS for the Lions. Manny Lawson OLB, I think is a free agent. Keenan Lewis CB, Steelers to name a few under the radar guys.

Delmas has yet to play a whole season and only 17 games the last 2 years , intriguing but I think a Safety can be drafted in the middle rounds with players who are coming from the draft who are healthier, lets say 3rd or possibly 4th if we chose that route, Baccarri Rambo, Personally I think Tom has produced just enough(Not all that good in my opinion) that Grigson and our coaches give him another year to prove himself, keep in mind this is basically his first year as a full time starter,

Ryan Lilja would get absolutely trounced in our man blocking scheme.

OG Matt Slauson, 26yrs old and has been a real solid reliable starter for the Jets over the last 3 years. And lord knows we need the help for the interior oline

I love the way Louis Delmas plays. However he reminds me a little bit of Bob Sanders in the fact that he is often injured. I know he's missed several games this year with the Lions.

    • Haeg went in the 5th 155th player picked. Our pick I liked least was Morrison in the 4th making him the 125th player taken. I saw him go undrafted in some mocks. NFL.com had him a 7th - proirity FA. I was surprised.   There were a lot of options on the board at 125 I do recall that. Judon was one of them Ravens took him 21 players later the 146th player picked.  I was hoping for D. Hall CB or Robinson CB LSU I liked Judon and RB Dixon there as well.  
    • That doesn't really conflict with what I saw.  I am not quite as optimistic overall because we really need to win early as our second half of the schedule is brutal so it's critical to be at least 6-2 the first half if we have sights on a great season, though reading this I just saw the Mewhort isn't gone for season? That's big big news and really changes a lot once he's back.  Of course it seems usually when the Colts say 2-4 weeks, it turns out to be 6-8 weeks, but let's hope for once their optimism is true.     I think Castonzo is a serious problem.  Not sure how you fix him as you'd think it is a mental problem rather than health because it has carried over across last season until now.  Philbin has his work cut out.  
    • We need to take a page out of the Patriots notebook.  Their line was very average last year, yet the offense put up great numbers.  If your offensive line has trouble pass blocking and can't run block, you need to turn the short passing game into your running game.  Short, quick drops and dump it off or throw darts on quick slants.  Patriots kill teams doing that.  We did beat the Broncos with less talent on offensive line last year so I'm still hopeful Chud will game plan better against good defensive teams like the Eagles during the regular season.
    • Still don't know how Walden is still on the team, not even a pay cut.
    • I'm with Kaepernick. Sorry to all who may be offended. I'll spare you the diatribe except to say that we have (and have always had) a serious problem with our criminal justice system and it's a national disgrace. Nothing Kaepernick will ever do can disparage our union nearly as much as crime and punishment statistics do.

    • Hello Colts Nation   I am a long time reader of this forum but never really participated in comments but hope to join in this season.   Been a Colts fan since the 'move' when i lived in Carmel.  Actually liked the Colts before that when i was younger but it was the uniform that appealed to me.    I am wondering how do I start a topic in a forum?  Do I have to have so many replies before approved?  I tried to find the rules topic on this but no luck.   Thanks   Edit: I finally found the section on the rules to posting.  :-)
