I'm glad they are doing their due diligence with him. I watched him a bit last season and I thought he was worth about a 5th-6th round pick without knowing he had issues with coachability(I heard about those from Matt Miller on his Stick to Football podcast when he declared for the supplemental draft). Now I'm wary giving up even a 5th... but that's why Ballard and his staff are paid millions - to do their research and see if there is fire where the smoke is.
Scheme fit was definitely a big thing in the draft this year. Ballard even sacrificed value to get guys that would fit the new 4-3, which was a good change of pace from the Grigson days (Bjoern Werner comes to mind). If he fits, I'm all for it, if not, pick up some players who get dropped during cuts and see if they fit our scheme better than someone else's.
Only if he passes muster with Brian Decker... Colts’ director of player development.
They'll review film and see if he is a scheme fit, Brian Decker will interview him to see if he is a character fit, and low enough risk. We'll soon see...
