I hope they don't cut Nevis. He is one of our best pass rushers.

That is funny. I cant remember where but it was reported that he was unblockable in camp.

He's been great so far.  But how much has he played against first teams?  It seems to me like he's always in the second half.

 

I can't see how they let a young guy like that go.

I will be very disappointed if they cut Nevis.  Personally I think Ricardo Matthews, Lawrence Guy and Moala are more likely to be cut than Nevis.

my sentiments exactly... although Bremer is talking like we might only keep 6, which is highly unlikely, IMO.

I'd be disappointed if Nevis is cut over Moala/Hughes. That being said, I don't think we will.

Redding, RJF, Guy, Nevis, Mathews, Hughes, Moala

 

AF & Chapman

 

That's 9, if they go to 8 it's up to Moala to get healthy enough to beat out Nevis in my opinion.

He may not have the height, but he has been a beast every time he steps on the field.

He only has us keeping six defensive linemen. I think we'll keep at least seven.

If I recall correctly Nevis was our best DL in run defense last year according to PFF

Lawrence Guy had 22 tackles the past 6 games (including last season and playoffs). He's also 6'4'' 318 lbs, only 23 years old.

 

IMO this should be our lineup:

 

DE: Redding, Guy

NT: Franklin, Chapman

DE: Francois, Nevis, Hughes

 

That's 7.

 

Moala will probably be #8, or on IR.

 

Most likely to be cut is Richardo Matthews and Martin Tevaseu. Both are 3rd stringers.

Nevis would be traded before cut IMO, a team like Dallas would kill for him, I don't think he gets cut or traded!

We're all (including me) assuming Hughes makes the team.  I'm not sure he's outplayed any of the guys that would be cut.  He's more valuable if he can play some NT too.

 

I think Tevaseu is the only one we can all agree is first man out.

Absolutely.

Nevis most definitely has trade value.

Yeah I just don't think they'd give up this quickly on a guy they spent a 4th and 5th round pick to get.

I'd be (A) surprised and (B) disappointed if Nevis is not on the final 53...

 

About 1 to 2 weeks ago, Pagano was quoted as saying Drake has a great motor that the team loves and that he's perfect for our inside pass rush whenever we go to a 4-man line.

 

I can't imagine we'd let go of someone like that.   I think he's roughly 25.   And yes,  he would not be let go, he'd definitely have trade value,  but not all that much.  (I'd guess a #5 for him)   So, he's much, much more valuable keeping him, than he is trading him.

 

I expect to see Drake Nevis on our final 53 man roster.

Exactly, and they're going to be playing a lot of 4 man line, especially against pass happy teams.  Having defensive tackles to provide an interior pass rush is the one luxury that Freeny and Mathis never had and right now we actually have several of them with Redding and Nevis being the best, but Matthews and Guy have also shown the ability.  I haven't paid enough close attention to RJF but hopefully he can as well and the hope is that Hughes develops into that kind of player too.  Having guys like that are essentially the best hope we have to be able to beat the elite QB's like Brady, Manning etc.  The best QB's know how to avoid the outside rushers, but when the interior guys are pushing the pocket right into their face is when even the most elite QB's have trouble.

I thought we just spent our 2014 4th round pick on Hughes. I double checked as I wanted to be sure that I was correct and what the site I looked at was the following.

 

We traded next years 4th for Cleveland's 6th pick in round 5. Must be Cleveland didn't like what was there in the 5th round as that seems like a cheap price for a pick so high in this year's 5th. Anyway... I believe that's all we gave up for Hughes. You might be looking at the whole 5th round and see that we traded our 5th round pick , but it had nothing to do with the Hughes selection. That was traded in 2012 to the 9er's. I think that was to move up a few spots for Hilton. 

 

So pretty sure just a 4th and not a 4th and a 5th.

crap, you're right.  I was thinking we used the 4th to trade up in the 5th for him.  Forgot all about not having the 5th from the Hilton trade.  thanks for clarifying :)

Yea.. no problem .

 

Really was a cheap deal for the Colts , if you figure the "traditional" round (32picks) for trading this year for next year. If the Colts draft 24th again in 2014 , that would just be 14 spots. But I guess that was the best offer Cleveland was getting , so probably what the pick was worth. Maybe I'm over estimating where the team giving the future pick would be expected to draft.

Rayford is a 34 OLB/ 43 DE. He's not 34 DE.

Plus, in obvious pass situations we go to a 4 man front. It would be:

Mathis, RJF, Nevis, Werner

Freeman, Angerer.

PLEASE NO! I think Nevis is a very reliable lineman who can get some good pressure on the QB. I love watching him.

Maybe Bremer lives in Colorado or Washington St. That would make the most sense.

 

Nevis, would be the easy pick, if a person was too lazy to actually pay attention.

He's been our best DL this preseason thus far, there is no way he gets cut

Nevis is our best interior pass rusher and he's good against the run no way he gets cut. Nevis does have the best trade value we could get at least a 4th for him from a team like the Cowboys but he's to valuable to the team. I do think will keep 3 NT's given the injury history of Franklin and Chapman, Hughes will make the team. It'll come down to Guy and Matthews but i imo Guy is the better player and pass rusher. This is how the lineup should be.

 

DE:Redding,Guy

NT:Franklin,Chapman,Hughes

DE:RJF,Nevis

 

Tevasue will be on the practice squad.

No way does Nevis NOT make this team. He's been praised by the coaching staff time and time again. And if you watch the tape, he's consistently disrupting the play.

I have found George Bremer to be one of the most reliable sources of inside information, in and around Colts camp.

Here he is speculating about Nevis. I just hope he is wrong on this one.

Pagano is used to having utility players on his D-line with the Ravens specifically for pass rush. Drake Nevis is at worst a 2nd string for this system of defense.

 

Plus, he has been playing the run well too. When we do get to the playoffs and play pass elite QBs like Peyton or Brady, we need that interior pass rush to make life uncomfortable in the pocket for those guys. Redding, Franklin and Francois, IMO do not push the pocket and disrupt their gaps like Nevis. They are stout at the point of attack to force the RB to go east-west and let the LBs finish the plays as they should but if a team decides to pass or go no huddle, we have few pocket pushers providing an interior pass rush. It would be a terrible mistake if we cut him.

    • They just want to pass the hot potato to us so we go the playoffs and face New England instead since they got Foxboro'ed out this year already. Sigh.   Just kidding.   Honestly this is terrible news. Love watching this guy play but he has not looked "all there" this year so far either. I still won't count Houston out though since they still might play very hard this year and it could still be a strong divisional battle.   It's important that they let him fully heal though for his future too.     Some say he should not have played.......but star players play banged up a lot. I am sure Luck was out there banged up last year a few times early in the year too. I think Houston probably trusted the trainers/doctors and how JJ himself said he felt and he felt okay to go perhaps. Before the NE game, I heard Watt was increasing his activity levels anyway in practice. Stuff, happens.......   Sucks so many stars are already hurt this year, but hey the Vikings have made do without a few and sometimes others step up in place.
    • I just don't think Luck trusts all his WR's yet.  I said this a couple of weeks ago to my buddy that he is waiting for the WR to come out of his break before throwing, which takes longer and leads to more problems.  I think he has decent chemistry with T.Y. but it's nowhere near the level that Manning had with Harrison and Wayne yet.  Takes time to build.  I also think in some of the situations where Luck makes the "boneheaded INT" throw he is trying to anticipate the pattern and it goes awry, which leads him to want to wait for the WR to break going forward.  I think it just may take a LOT more practice time and some years with these guys to gain that trust to know when they will break so he can release it sooner and not have something bad happen.   This is year 5 for Luck and T.Y. but not for everyone else.
    • Lol.. He said "circus", but I can definitely see where you could hear the other thing. 
    • I think we could win 5 by the mid-break.  BUT until we do he aint right and he aint wrong.  Just unproven.  He's still a fargin icehole though.
    • Ill try to answer your questions the best I can based on what I see and my opinion. Keep in mind its in my opinion though so take it for what it is worth.   He trusts both his arm and his legs . It has nothing to do with his physical ability that he doesn't trust. Its all mental ability to have a clock in his head the second he hits his drop back spot 3-5-7 steps. I believe he should be able to scan through his first 2 reads in under 2.5 seconds. By the time you get to that 3rd read I think your pretty well going to be under pressure unless you have an elite O Line pass blocking wise or you have your QB out on the move   I think Chud can help him out more by giving him some throws that are easy for him to make early on the games. Particularly short throws to get him settled in. Sometimes guys are not getting separation though and I don't really think Lucks strength is to throw guys open right now much. I think he is still working on learning to throw guys open which really involves throwing the ball to an area and trusting the receiver will be there. Instead I think he waits for the receiver to run his route and if the receiver is not open at the break point then he hesitates instead of throwing it to an area and having the WR go get it.   Also from the looks of it he doesn't get hardly any plays called that allow for him to throw on the run. No QB Roll Outs really at all. He needs more help from Chud
