Can't be much worse than Ricardo Matthews. 

 

 

He would have to be an OLBer in our system. He's not big enough to be a 3-4 DE.

He looks really fast with good moves. The 8-8 action in the IFL though, lol it should be interesting to see how he pans out with 11-11 and going against a much more talented offensive line in the NFL.

I love the play @ the 1:25 mark, pushes his own teammate out the way to make the tackle!

LOL....well, we have the marketing piece figured out!

 

If the guy can translate that high motor and destruction to the NFL then Grigson is really on the ball with these more obscure FAs.

 

We shall see.

Reportedly ran a 4.6 out of JC in 2007 were he played LB before switching to DE. Sounds like he is 25ish.

Killeen in the name of!!

 

I'll trust Grigson on this one. Plus his beard is pretty gnarly.

should be interesting to see what this guy can do.  Liked the video of him, but like someone said, that was in the IFL.  The OT's he went against didn't offer him much resistance.  Will be interesting to see what he can do against NFL OT's.  Of course maybe he can learn a thing or 2 from Mathis. :)

draftscout showed him in 2009 at 6'2 1/2 and 240 with 40 times of 4.57 - 4.86 avg. 4.72

Does he make plays?

Load up now on hard working quality people working hard to make the team.

Haven't seen anybody mention it, so I did some quick research on him.

 

Jake "Wolfman" Kalleen

H: 6-4

W: 240

Age: 27

 

Graduated from Charleston Southern University as an Education major. Played OLB in college, converted to DE for his size and speed in IFL.

 

There don't seem to be any recent workout numbers, as his most recent workout was the private one with the colts, best I can come up with is he ran the 40 with an average time of 4.72 in 2009, where he was projected as a DE.

If this guy has any real chance of making the roster, I would like to see him drop back down to around the 250lb range to add a little speed. As a 3-4 OLBer he'll have to drop into coverage so any additional speed would be beneficial to him.

Lets hope he can make a Kill-een in the NFL!!! Talent plus coaching equals production. We will see when pre-season starts, wont we?

Looking at his tape in the IFL, I would project him as 3-4 DE and that means he should not lose any weight. He has a quick first step, that's for sure.

Might be a good idea to bring in some cheap solid players from other leagues ASAP before other teams do.

Considering Killeen was the best pass rusher in the IFL averaging 10 sacks a year, I think that's the plan.

No idea who this kid is, but you gotta love Grigs for constantly working his tail off to better the team.... when was the last time B.P. plucked a guy from obscurity the way Grigs did with "Baby Ray"?

Looks good, I'll reserve my judgement for training camp and preseason though

Looks like a monster in the IFL. Now I hope he plays like that with that motor all the time. Shows Nice moves even a little spin move. But the NFL is A bigger and stronger Leauge with alot more talent so well see. I trust Grigs and the scouting team becuase they have done a pretty good job so far. If our DE play well and occupy those tackles he could do some damage. I am excited about the possiblities.

First thought....how did this guy not get put on at least someone's practice squad and wondering if Jerry Hughes would look similiar or better than this in the arena league.

I'm not so sure. Looks like an OLB prospect. I'm thinking he'd have to get a lot bigger (heavier) to play DE in a 3/4. But, what do I know. ;)

His size and speed is very similar to Anthony Spencer..if any thing he many need to gain like 10 pounds but you wouldnt want to compromise his speed rush either.

You are right. This kid is too small to play a 3-4 DE. 3-4 DE's are normally around 300+lbs. He has to play OLBer in the 3-4.

My understanding is that he played OLB in College.

    • I have to agree with this sentiment.    I was worried they/he rushed back from injury too soon. I hope it's not career ending. Even though he was a division rival, I've always liked how he carried himself on and off the field. I wish him the best.
    • But he didn't, despite the narrative.    Grigson drafted 4 receivers in 4 years: Hilton (3rd), Brazill (6th), Moncrief (3rd), Dorsett (1st).    In the same time period, he drafted 6 OL: Anderson (7th), Thornton (3rd), Holmes (4th), Mewhort (2nd), John (7th), Good (7th).   Then this year, he drafted 4 more OL, including Kelly in the 1st. In five years, that's 4 receivers, 10 OL. Even "early" picks -- which to me is first and second rounders -- is 2 OL, 1 WR. Add in the third round, and it's still 3 OL and 3 WRs.   Grigson largely failed to fix the OL for four years, no question. But it's not because he didn't try, and it's definitely not because he spent too many picks on receivers. 
    • I worry about many things, but Dorsett isn't one of them.
    • Wouldn't a PS player have to remain on the team for 3 weeks? So when Jones came back next week someone else would have to be cut
    • In theory, yes, the Colts at their best could probably beat any team in the league. The offense would have to avoid mistakes, the defense would have to tackle well, and they'd probably still need some help from the other team in the form of missed opportunities (Rivers missed 3-4 TD throws on Sunday). They could get hot, stay healthy, and knock some teams off. It would be awesome if they were humming in December and January and made it to the Super Bowl, but don't hold your breath.    In practice, this year's Colts are a second tier team, at best. The OL is a work in progress (positive things are on the way, I believe, but the protection is still leaky and the run blocking is even further off), the QB and receivers aren't consistently on the same page. The defense can't cover the middle and can't consistently rush the passer. The coaching staff hasn't proven that they have the ability scheme and strategically minimize these weaknesses AND maximize the obvious strengths. In fact, in the biggest test of this ability -- late in the Denver game -- the coaching staff blew it.   If the Colts were able to play to their full potential every single week, and stay healthy, and if the coaching staff pushed the right buttons every game and in every situation, you might have a 13-3 team with a first round bye. But even then, you're probably looking at the 2010/2012 Falcons; that team even won a playoff game, but wasn't a great team, and quickly regressed (4-12 in 2013, a year after going to the NFCCG). This team appears more likely to play below expectations than to exceed expectations, sadly. Just not enough playmakers, especially on defense.   The hope is that the last two draft classes keep going in the right direction, and you get another two draft classes that pan out. Doesn't mean the Colts aren't trying to contend in the meantime, but it's going to be a couple years before the Colts will be considered one of the top teams in the league. And that's assuming things go well and the staff does the right things over the next two offseasons, which isn't a given.
