    2019 WR draft / film notes

    Body wise? I'd comp him to someone who retired about 5 years ago... and I may botch his name somewhat... Alto Bolden. I believe he was on Baltimore's Super Bowl winning team. I think he may have played another year or so... then retired. I think he was 6'0" and about 220-ish. But he was known for being a "bad body" receiver....

    A safety is never going to be the difference in winning a SB.
  5. I don't have a great one. Stefon Diggs with 20 pounds on top is what comes to mind. A little less shifty, a little more physically explosive.

    we'll have to see about that, Collins, Bell very well could be....
  7. So what's your player comp for him?
  8. I think his body type is confusing people, because he looks more like a RB than a WR and they have hard time projecting him because of it. Try to ignore his bulk for a moment. Think of him as an averagely sized WR for his height. Imagine he's 195lbs instead of 215... Imagine the same quickness, same route running, same ability to break tackles and gain yards after catch from the slot and same game breaking long-catch game. What do you see? Now add 20 pounds on top WITHOUT subtracting anything for it. Don't punish him for having a weird body type. He does what he does well with this body type. I don't think it's hindering him in any specific way. If anything it's probably helping him break tackles. He's not particularly shifty but that's not something out of the ordinary for most receivers. Not everybody is Parris Campbell. At least he has his bulk and explosiveness to gain YAC in different way than just making people miss by shiftiness.
  9. Yes, when I said "last year" I meant 2017, when I said "this year" I meant 2018. The point is his best season so far has been without Quenton or much of anything good around him.

    Colts in talks with Inman

    That isn’t really true.
  11. but you also said he was rated higher in 2017 than 2018???? having a career year in 2018, but rated higher in 2017 is not computing with my old brain. and wasn't AC out in the beginning of the season?? not sure that you would expect a line with an injured starter, plus two new guys to play well regardless. and smith wasn't even starting until like week 5 or 6, and that was at RG. Then moved to RT around week 8 or 9. the OL was a work in progress the first half of the season. not sure you can say AC was thing that made them good all of sudden. kelly was banged up early too.

    The guys that got the big money in FA aren’t really difference makers.

    Good points, but this team, unlike last year's, has some much higher expectations from us as fans. (wildcard minimum, win the division hopefully and make a better run) Everyone is trying to improve and if Colts continue to ignore FA's that could be difference makers, the Colts better have the #1 draft again or we could regress and finish 3rd. How would the fans react to CB's plans then. This is a critical year for his banking cash and going with second wave players and draft only.
  14. It's really fustrating when you have blocked a certain poster only for all his posts to be quoted anyways

    What do you consider early ?

    The 3 Tech position

    But...... do you sit Autry, slow development of Ward, slow development of Lewis at that spot to get Wilkins on the field To me already HAVE out 3 tech rotation FULLY covered Wilkins is too slow for DE and not stout enough to cover NT He offers no position flexibility Supposedly, Wilkins is being considered in the teens, so a moot point If Bush is still there........ If C. Ferrel is still there....... You would HAVE to consider If not, and Tillary is gone.... a trade back may be in play
  17. The 2017 season. Ballard is on the record saying that this was AC's best season and also he was graded in the 80s(top 10 in the league) by PFF. He did that with a trash OLine around him.
  18. Sorry.... I meant 17, not 18.... Ballard's first year. He was graded highly as others have posted, and Ballard publicly praised him saying he was playing the best ball of his career. 2017. Sorry.
  19. Clarification... I was talking about AC's best season being 17, not 18. Ballard's first year and before QN showed up. Sorry for the confusion....
  20. You're confusing me. What game was Q not beside AC? Q played 100% of the LG snaps last year. Again, not saying AC is bad. I am say though that when you put an all pro G next to you, it makes your job a ton easier.

    Colts in talks with Inman

    I said this in the other thread over on the Draft and FA page.... But reading that we are trying to bring Inman back just makes my day! Our receiving group will be better with Inman in it. He's a professional receiver. He's not fast, or flashy... he's solid and dependable. He gets open and makes the catch. You could see Luck quickly grew to look for him. They're a good match. Looking forward to reading that Inman will be back for the 19 season.... That'll be a good day for Colts Nation!
  22. Yep, his grade was in the 80s last year, which was a career year by PFF... and also by Ballard's evaluation. In fact you can argue that the OLine continued being trash this season without him and only got its % together once he returned... this includes Quenton. The point is... the whole left side of the line(Kelly included) has been playing out of their mind once AC returned. They are developing quite a chemistry between them and they are playing well both as a unit and as individuals.

    If you don't Buy them in FA and don't draft them early you run a high risk in a 'passing league' of having a very pedestrian group of receivers....which outside of TY we do.
  24. I don't understand the bold at all... AC enjoyed his best season last year, I mean 17, not 18. Ballard said he thought AC was playing the best ball of his career. And that was WITHOUT Q playing next to him. He didn't become good overnight this year. He's been good for a while now....
  25. Like I've said, I really like AC. And without a doubt, I want to keep him. I just don't have as much confidence in him as I do others. And that goes for short and long term. Out of the OL, I think CB would go father dollars (respectively at their position) and length on Q, Kelly, and Smith, than AC. And let's be honest. AC is benefiting a ton from the monster standing beside him. Before Q, AC while he might have been our best OL, was not killing it IMO. Give me some time on the links of rankings/ratings. I'll also dig up some of the criticisms of PFF. I like PFF, but they do have some big misses, and their ratings/rankings have a lot of head scratchers. I love stats and stuff, but IMO, you have to take it all from different sources, and form a composite view or average.
