  1. Do you think he could add weight and perform at NT in a 3-4? He seems to be strong enough. Viewing his reel he also seems to understand leverage. Do you know how long his arms are? If he is short but long arms he could play the 5 without issue. I like Dean Lowry and Joel Heath as possible late round/FA 5 techniques but Lowry has short arms for his height (6'6).
  2. I love this kid's potential. He should be around in the fourth but I think that he could develop into a very good starter down the road especially with the new blocking scheme concepts that the team is employing.
  3. This guy looks to be a veteran 3rd down option with a special teams value. A very good signing for the depth of the football team.
  4. I agree with crazycolt1. Importance to a team is not directly related to the players compensation. Is Arthur Jones more important than D'Qwell Jackson because he was paid more last year. The same market inequalities happen in the draft. QBs, LTs, and pass rushers are all over drafted while better all around players slip. I would start to build a defense around a solid MLB before any other pieces were in place. I can scheme a pass rush but it is hard to scheme an attitude. Any good defense will have quality MLB or ILBs. The 2013 Seahawks had Bobby Wagner who has made the last two pro bo
  5. You are mistaking market inequalities with importance. Scarcity increases value in the market but not necessarily to winning football games. Imagine the Ravens without Ray Lewis, the 49ers without Willis and Bowman, the Bears without Urlacher, etc. those stout defenses would not have been as good. Even last year's Super Bowl participants relied on the leadership of the inside linebacker position. Marshall, Treviathan, and Kuechly were just as important to the team as any another piece. If you cannot stop the run and cover receivers, the pass rush is a moot point. Pass rushers are paid m
  6. Brian also previously worked with Chud in SD while on Marty's staff. Brian had the reputation for being a great QB coach before he took over as OC of the Jets. I think that he will be an asset to the staff.
  7. This is my first post on this board. I am a displaced former Ram fan that was looking for a team that was close that I could adopt. I think that I have found one and it just happens to be the same team that I started to root for in my pre teen years. Growing up in Southern Illinois in he early 90s, the Colts were on one of our local channels. I gravitated towards the Colts due to the great uniforms and the fact that I love the draft and the Colts at the time were always picking at the top. I watched them draft Emtman and Coryatt and Faulk and Alberts. I saw Tobin blow up on Ki
