Super happy for Skai! He was a leader at USC and brought it every single game. I've really wanted the Colts to give him an opportunity. :rock:

 

I had Skai as a 5th round prospect. Fell due to being undersized and neck injury he suffered in 2016.

I didn't know what to expect of him this past season coming off the neck injury but he looked the same to me. Hopefully he can carve out a role with the Colts.

The current LB depth (not including the rookies) is so bad. He'll definitely have a shot.

If Skai is 100% now, I think he'll be a UDFA for us that makes the 53. From there, he could improve a lot.

Skai was a MIKE, team captain I believe and had the best coverage grades for any MLB last year in FBS! Great signing.....just gotta put a little meat on his bones in a pro diet and fitness program!

At the very least he's a perfect backup. Team Captain, high football intelligence, produced in the SEC, and most importantly he puts himself in a position to succeed on the field. I'm just stoked he has an opportunity on my favorite NFL team. 

 

I know Ballard is listening to my fanboi raving and will put him on the 53 haha

Watching him just now it looks like he's excellent at creating separation at the top of the route. His QB almost never hit him in stride though so he had to come back to the ball and make contested catches. Really good pickup for the Colts!

Is it bad that Im a bit more stoked over some of udfa guys than a couple of our draft picks? Do teams typically draft guys that might not even make the roster?

Guy looks like Chad Johnson in those highlights. 

reminds me more of Pierre Garcon not talking about the mouthpiece either :) i think Garcon was like a 6/7 round pick in the Polian years. I like attitude and personality he's got a bunch of that.

Wow. JT Barrett is a Colt.

Bye Bye Kaaya and Walker

 

Only if he can prove he can beat them out at rookie mini-camp.  I would have preferred we drafted one, even in late rounds.  But 2 I had targeted ( right,  @OffensivelyPC ) for late round consideration were taken in late rounds by other teams-

 

The first Big Ten quarterback has been drafted. And it's Nebraska's Tanner Lee at No. 203 in the sixth round to Jacksonville.

 

The Seahawks concluded their picks in the 2018 NFL Draft Saturday by taking quarterback Alex McGough of Florida International University in the seventh round. He was the 220th pick overall.

JT Barrett would be useful in replicating Watson and Mariotas mobility and running ability. Could help the defense prepare for those guys. 

 

That's the job of the practice squad QB. Run the scout team.

The Colts were reportedly interested in McGough. The Seahawks actually traded up in front of us to get him. I'm not sure we would have taken him but... for whatever it's worth.

With the draft and UDFA we got some competition at WR.

A bunch of competition at WR and LB now. Those will be the position battles to watch in camp.

Why do kickers sign with us every year? They're never going to Vinnys spot

Probably his last year

Most on here know I am a 'Cuse homer but I really think Steve Ishmael has a chance to make the roster.

Right now, I'd say he's the 6th best WR on the roster behind Hilton, Grant, Rogers, Cain and Fountain. Definitely has a fighting chance, the Colts may even keep 6 WR's.

I agree with you and the only reason Rogers is in the 3rd slot on your list is because he has two years of NFL play under his belt.  I feel the last three all have more talent than him.  Should be exciting to see it all shake out.

Grant (1 year contract) and Rogers (former UDFA himself and Himes takes his return role) are expendable if someone like Steve Ishmael beats them out.

Personally, I wanna see the BYU DT (Tomasi somethingorother) that is 301 lbs that ran a 4.77 40. I wanna see his first step and how he penetrates as a UT.....

Rodgers is definitely on notice. But remember that Ballard said Fountain would need time. Small school kid. Cain could beat him out though. WR is interesting because it’s literally a wide open position after Hilton.

Rogers needs to stay healthy, but I think he will be a factor this year

True statement, I don't think they stash him on the PS though with his measurables and WR needy teams...? Maybe? Lol

The great news is that suddenly the WR position seems much stronger.

Rootin' for your boy, but he needs to be a good special teamer to stick on the 53...
