  1. I agree Dayo's 4.7 at his size is impressive. We don't have other numbers, but overall he looks very athletic for his size. Regarding Kwity, he didn't to the 3 cone at his pro day which might be his best event.
  2. Good to have competion. Saw the Jets waived Chase McLaughlin and he was claimed by the Browns. I wanted the Colts to sign undrafted rookie and Lou Groza winner Jose Borregales from Miami. Very accurate with a big leg. Hit a 57 yarder vs Louisville that would have been good over 60.
  3. Found an informative podcast with Dr Robert Anderson about his achilles technique: - Visited Europe and saw their doctors were using a mini incision - Took this approach back to the US approx 10 years ago - Uses a very small incision 1/2 inch horizontal incision vs 4-6 inch vertical incision - Saves blood supply to the tendon and minimizes damage to surrounding tissue - Speeds up recovery - After 12 weeks patients cut loose and work aggressively in rehab - Average return is 6 months for recreational activity; Elite athlete requires more time - Rehab proc
  4. Derrick Johnson Chiefs LB was similar
  5. ESPN Live - Positive update regarding Fisher injury: - Stephania Bell said 6 to 9 month recovery - Main reason his surgery was done by Dr Robert Anderson - pioneered a new achilles surgical technique that uses a smaller incision that has less risk of infection and speedier recovery.
  6. Regarding achilles recoveries, a few things stuck out to me: 1. After Ballard, drafted Dayo he addressed his achilles injury and referenced Mack's recovery. He said Mack was ready to go at about the 7 month mark in his recovery 2. Brandon Brooks massive OG for Eagles tore his achilles in January a few years ago and was starting in week 1 the following season. 3. Derrick Johnson ex chiefs LB - 12/8/16 tore his achilles and was back practicing in training camp on approx 7/25.
  7. Indy Star article said there were 5 rookie tryouts along with the draft picks and the signed UDFAs
  8. Below are couple of links. The projected 7th could turn into a 6th. I like the cancellation chart in the first link https://overthecap.com/compensatory-picks/ https://www.nfl.com/news/2022-nfl-draft-compensatory-pick-projections-for-every-team Projected compensatory picks: One apiece in Rounds 5 and 7. Key free-agent losses: Denico Autry (Titans), Jacoby Brissett (Dolphins), Anthony Walker Jr. (Browns). Key free-agent additions: Sam Tevi. Comp-pick analysis: It appears the Colts will turn Autry's very reasonable three-year deal
  9. Borregales from Miami was arguably the top kicker in the draft and was signed by the Bucs as a UDFA. He has a big leg. In the Louisville game, he nailed a kick that would have been good from 60+. Was hoping we would bring him in to compete.
  10. Posted this another thread as well prior to seeing this one. Listened to Irsay's post draft comments. A few things stood out: - Just raving about the edge rushers we drafted. - LT - get the impression that we will bringing someone else in. I'm hoping it is Fisher. - In 4th & 5th rounds, Colts were interested in taking OT but teams jumped in front of them. Just looking at the draft order, I'm guessing those guys were OT James Hudson in the 4th and OT Tommy Doyle in the 5th. Also is it just me or did Ballard & Reich not seem nearly as excited a

  12. Looks Riley Cole did sign with the Chiefs. He retweeted the chiefs signing himself
  13. I like the Fries pick at this point in the draft. Another good athlete with a lot of experience. For next year, Zion Nelson has improved a ton and put on like 60lbs, but still needs a lot of work. He didn't dominate in the spring game. Has all the physical traits but hoping he stays all 4 years at Miami
  14. Really excited about this pick. Great size, super athletic and productive.
  15. Colts just took one of the 2 guys i wanted - Michael Strachan WR huge athletic, prospect Larnell Coleman OT is the other one I want
