  1. Here's a nice article on this year's receivers group divided in X, Z, slot and big slot receivers from The Draft Network: https://thedraftnetwork.com/articles/breaking-the-2019-wide-receiver-class-into-nfl-roles
  2. What I will say is that you are not in a bad company. A lot of draft analysts whose opinion I respect are with you on Harmon(at least were before the combine, I don't know about now). So I'm kind of alone on this one so it's very possible I'm wrong. I tried to see what others do, but every time I put on the tape of him I'm thinking... oh look... imagine if he was 3 inches taller, he'd be like Hakeem Butler... oh look... he's kinda slow... imagine if he was much faster he would be like Hakeem Butler... oh look... he caught a tough ball but didn't get any yards after the catch... imagine if the was Hakeem Butler, he could have taken it all the way to the end zone... etc.
  3. Oh I like Harry(he's on the list under the code name... Harry ). I was kind of disappointed watching him against Stanford, but that was not one of his better games and he did play against what I consider a great CB talent in Paulson Adebo. I think he's a good value in the second round(if he drops there). He's great after the catch and he can make people miss as well as just truck over a couple defenders to get the tough yards and move the sticks. He is also pretty good tracking the ball and fighting for it in the air. His combine was pretty much what I expected - his explosiveness scores were off the charts(27 bench press reps, 38.5" vertical and 122" broad jump). his speed which was one of the questions for him, was good enough(4.53 40 yard dash). He did not do the agility tests and IMO he's one of the players whose representatives know what they are doing and they knew he wouldn't test great there so he just skipped them. But his game doesn't suggest he has great agility so that wouldn't have been a surprise to me. In general he checked the boxes he needed to check for me to still consider him high level prospect.
  4. I was never enamored by Harmon and I never saw what most others did. He was pretty much a worse, smaller and less athletic version of Hakeem Butler for me without the YAC ability Butler has. I have about 7-8 receivers ahead of him in this draft. I would pick Metcalf, Butler, Deebo, AJ Brown, Harry, Campbell, JJ Arcega Whiteside, Hollywood Brown if he was healthy... probably even Andy Isabella ... ahead of Harmon. BTW... Fairly disappointing pro-day for Preston Williams:
  5. @Superman Can I suggest a receiver to watch? Watch Preston Williams from Colorado State(transfer from Tennessee). I've have yet to finish his evaluation but the little I've seen he seems really intriguing to me, also multiple draft analysts seem to think he's a 1st-2nd round level receiver on the field. But his off-the field issues(multiple) and ACL tear from several years ago are likely to drop him to day 3. He is big, athletic and dynamic after the catch and great in the air for contested catches. Big time red zone target.
  6. Both AJ Brown and N'Keal Harry have been growing on me as I've been watching more games of them. Props to @twfish for pointing out AJ Browns games as an outside receiver. I love this draft in the 2nd-3d rounds for receivers. I think it will be such a waste if we don't get one in that range.
  7. @Superman Did you see any issues from Butler in tracking the ball in the air? Or in over the shoulder type of catches? I was so hyped up by his combine testing, but then the on-field drills happened and he couldn't find the ball on multiple occasions to the point where I have decided I need to go back and rewatch his tape to see if this is just about him working with a QB he's never worked with in a weird situation or if this is a more ever-present problem for him. I agree with a lot of your assessment of both. I kind of think Metcalf has a bit more ability to separate in the short to intermediate range. He has not run a ton of routes but he has shown suddenness in his breaks even if somewhat inconsistently that IMO projects well going forward as he learns and develops his route tree. (all of this is of course with the disclaimer that he needs to have the work ethic in order to maximize his obvious athletic abilities). Also... what round grades do you give Butler and Metcalf right now?

  10. I'm on the record that I love Metcalf as a prospect and if he's there at 26 I wouldn't mind picking him, but I personally wouldn't use draft capital in order to move up to get him. I like this draft a lot and there is a good chance that there will be a player at 26 that I like as much or better than Metcalf, thus trading away assets wouldn't be my ideal strategy here.
  11. I'm wondering why ANY player nowadays wants to play at 340+? What's the advantage there? It's not like you will be so much less strong at 325 for example? Weight =/= strength at those types of weights and even if there is some marginal advantage of strength at 345, IMO the speed and agility advantage of the lower weight far outweigh the strength gains. The new NFL is so much more about speed and pass disruption... If I were one of those big boys I would be trying to maximize that part of my game.
  12. Here's some interesting insight from Ed Dodds about the process of the 15 minutes interviews we will be conducting with players during the combine:
  13. They are very high on both Metcalf and Murphy. Build another board with your own preferences and see if you get better/more realistic results. @Moderators please fix the typo in my title (simulator)
  14. The Draft Network released their new big board machine and draft simulator: http://www.thedraftnetwork.com/ You can make your own big board and then use it to simulate a mock draft or you can use some of the other already available big boards. it seems like a well done simulator. You can do simulations with multiple teams(even all of them if you want). Very good resource overall about the draft. Here's my first mock draft for the Colts using their machine:
  15. I thought this is a cool page by the Ringer: http://nfldraft.theringer.com/
  16. Not specifically Colts' related but I thought this is interesting info about the level of research and background intel teams do on prospects:
  17. Colts meeting with Texas DL Charles Omenihu today at the Senior Bowl. Here are some highlights and some full game footage of Omenihu: Full game tapes:
  18. Here's the official thread to post and document everything we can gather as information about the players the Colts have shown any interest in during draft season. I'm starting with an interesting tidbit from the all-star games that have already started: Colts met with Nevada LB Malik Reed for nearly an hour at the NFLPA Bowl:
