BRO does he not look like R Kelly? (The singer guy not the Centre).

Would still like to grab TE OJ Howard out of Alabama in the draft, though.

No thanks, don't want to spend a high pick on someone like him or Njoku when we have glaring needs elsewhere and Doyle and Swoope are fine.

Doyle and Swoope are our guys at TE. You need a 3rd TE, preferably a blocking TE. Williams may not even make the roster IDK. But he's fine as a 3rd TE. Doyle and Swoope will probably put up around 500-600 yards a piece with 5-10 TD's a piece. Eric Swoope will be one of the biggest breakout players in the NFL this coming season bet on it. I absolutely love what we have with him and Doyle. Just need Haeg to become a monster RG, Clark or Good one to be serviceable at RT, and Moncrief to stay healthy and out offense is gonna be top 5. Moncrief is a star in the making once he stays healthy and plays a full season. Good luck covering TY, Moncrief, Doyle, and Swoop.

This signing is the first that doesn't make a lot of sense to me. I'd much rather draft a TE later in the draft (rounds 5-7) in a loaded class than sign someone with hardly any production. 

 

 Can`t wait to see who we draft in the 6th and 7th.
 Again you post without knowing what the guy is being brought in to do.

We're having open tryouts at camp, apparently.

I suspect he's a blocking type of TE

When we traded DA, we needed a blocking TE and a Tackle. Gotta get a blocker, somewhere!

Yes.  I signed up for the group Sunday matinee tryout.  It's me, a 10 year old and her grandmother.

The problem with that is you know he isn't a pass option so the defense has an advantage.  He needs to catch the football.

We will.  Competition for Swoope and Williams

Indy has no 6th or 7th round pick in this draft....

we needed a blocking TE to compliment doyle and swoop

 

i think swoop is a break out candidate too, like doyle was last year

 

we could have one receiving specialist in swoop, one hybrid in doyle and a blocking specialist in williams

Ran a 4.56 tho:thmup:

If he can stay healthy I think he has all the tools to be a nice compliment to Doyle and Swoopes. Swoopes with the finesse, Doyle with the versatility, and Williams with the physicality. I wanted to draft a TE and this guy has no receiving production, but F it I love his potential he's my new favorite for that 3rd spot we don't need to draft one unless the value is too good to pass.

The  naïve part of me was hoping he would fall to 2nd or 3rd round. But  realistically, I know that's not gonna happen.

Another guy with potential ran a 4.56 runs clean routes works hard is nasty in the blocking game and is a handful to bring down prototype for the Air Coryell also plays SP teams . Hasn't produced in the NFL but if any of this is true sounds like a guy to give a shot .

Aside from RB, you really don't want to spend any draft picks on offensive players. A guard maybe, but the holes on D are so bad that you want to devote as many picks as possible to D. We need like 2 ILBs,2-3 CBs, a NT, and a FS. Probably a 5-tech as well. I wouldn't mind taking a George Kittle in the 4th, but the more picks that go to defense the better.

I have a feeling the Giants will take one of them in the first. Dolphins got their guy or else I would have thought maybe they'd go Njoku

I'm glad we have someone who can block.  Somebody has too.  If he is above average blocking and dyle is at least average, when we line up in two TE, we can put a hurting on those backers.  It is also the easiest formation for the OL.  They can pin their ears back and move the line of scrimmage.  I know running is old school, but here is hoping.

So wth are we visiting with Mychal Rivera now? Someone start that thread im too lazy. But still F Mychal Rivera man why go after a 4th TE and not follow up with Zach Brown if he doesn't sign with Miami. What a waste of money if Rivera signs here

Maybe, Greg Olsen is 32 but he is still one of the best

This type of player could have been  drafted late or picked off from waiver wires. Don't give me blocking TE. That's problem in NFL world today, no complete players. You have to get a catching TE and Blocking TE.

    • I agree. As long as that that person is answering it like an opinion and everyone realizes it's an opinion, then everything is solid. It gets when people are telling opinions as facts that it starts to head south. You see plenty of both, but it's usually just a lot of debating from my point of view. Some good points of view, and some bad ones, but as long as we all acknowledge these point of views as opinions when they are, then I see nothing wrong with it. I think it just gets out of control when there are rumors, mostly during FA and the draft, and people take it out of context at times, myself included.
    •   Well.....   There's good conversation and then there's.....      NOT so good conversation.   And this website has plenty of both.     I'd love to have more of the good kind and less of the NOT so good kind.   Deciding now that a poster here --- any poster here --- knows what Chris Ballard thinks of a player is ridiculous because none of us knows anything.    Ballard may love the guy.    He may like the guy.    He may not like him.   But nobody knows.      So, stating as fact that Ballard doesn't like someone is a dog that just won't hunt.....  
    • Things went our way tonight all around. Pacers win, Hawks and Bucks lose. Now there is a 3 way tie for 5th. It will be interesting to see how we finish.   Bad night with injuries for this team though. We already knew GR3 hurt his calf in practice and then Stuckey and Al Jefferson go down tonight. I actually want to see more Brooks/Ellis/Miles and more Christmas so hopefully they can pick up momentum if we can make the playoffs.
    • I wouldn't call it a flaw at all. In fact, it's the main premise that a sports forum is built around. Trying to put pieces of the puzzle together on certain things and predicting the future. That's how conversation is started a lot of the time in particular and it keeps people engaged. Without people jumping to conclusions with little evidence, it'd just be people reporting facts on twitter and chat on gameday, which wouldn't be a lot of fun by itself.
