    Hopefully they can teach him to pass block. He difinitely has the size

    The RB postion seems to be an area where rookies can contribute quicker in the pro game I need to study up on Michael

    One of the draft picks I am really anxious to see is Jordan Wilkins He seems to have great patience and keeps his head up field to see open holes. He has an immediate speed gear once he sees the opening 6.5 YPC in the tough SEC, is also an indicator of what he can do He also comes out of college without the mileage of some of the other college RBs. (279 total college carries, vs 600 plus) out of some of the other top college RBs that have come out the past few years) I like Mack and Hines, and think they will rotate, but think he gets the nod to start Thoughts? (Did I mention I hate our depth at LB........ )

    I truly hope you are right....... We will see how he develops. I am not unhappy that we took him...... I just thought it was a round or two early. I am not feeling good about the lack of talent at LB that we are starting out the season with though....... hopefully we pick up some depth there

    Colts WR Deon Cain working out with NFL Legend

    Sheeze.... a bit harsh..... I cant see the full original post, (because the new poster has pulled it down) From the quote...... its not THAT bad....... not like the guy was rooting for Tom Brady ........

    Steve Ishmael

    Earlier in the post, and in other posts, someone compared our WR group and our LB group. as having questions........ There is still much to be done, and still much to prove, but my "gut" tells me we will be ok in the WR group..... not the best.... but able to compete. Hilton is a known, pro bowl level talent. When Rogers has been healthy, he has shown flashes of being a good second option at WR, From highlights, while at Washington, Ryan Grant has shown some flashes of being a good second option at WR. Deon Cain looked like a late first round pick when he had a decent QB throwing to him. Ishmail and Fountain are clearly both talented and produced at a high level in College 2-3 of these guys (outside of Hilton) should shine, and make the team and man the spot accross from Hilton. I think we will see many 2 TE sets, (one split out) as well as our new RB, Hines also lining up in the slot I think that there are obvious questions, but there is clearly talent available at the WR spot on this team. HOWEVER I have MUCH less trust in the LBs I feel that we somewhat limping into the season with the LB team that we have Counting on late round drafted rookies and very low level UDFA to start and play well is risky at best Leonard, (not signed) should get WSLB........ the balance of people we currently have listed at LB, probably couldnt even make the team for most of the NFL squads. I truly love the new attitude of this coaching staff and front office........ I love how much this team (at least on paper) has improved. I hope they move Simon back to LB (SSLB..yeah, I said this before). I hope they bring in another MLB to compete. (and maybe, just maybe a CB) Deano .

    Sam Beal Pro Day - each team represented

    i didnt see much tape (only highlight stuff) I was basing this more on Stampede Blue analysis (podcast input) He will need to tackle....

    Sam Beal Pro Day - each team represented

    Tough call I would bid a 3rd. Fortunately, (unfortunately ) because of the poor season last year, we would be in front of most in the league for 3rd round the payout, if we have an 8-8 season, could be the actuall payout isnt the 3rd pick of the 3rd round but the 15th pick...... (not as painful) He seems to tackle well, and have good closing speed He is 6 1 (minus a 1/8) one commentator said that he has the frame to add the needed 10-15 lbs to me...... I want my 1sts and 2nds......... a 3rd ..... at a position that needs some talented bodies..... Do it.... CB

    Being and staying healthy is tough for the Colts We need quality depth. We need someone who has the skills to compete for a starting role here. Being the first string, as a DB, on the Colts is a low bar one third to Half of our DBs are bagging groceries if they didnt have the Colts...... In a passing league, with money to splurge, there is little to no risk in bringing in 1-2 DB players. I dont want a 10th round pick from Watsamatta U. I dont want someone who couldnt make the team anywhere else......... Again..... Love my Colts.... I dont want to sound like some of the whiners that infest the board. But To me, in my old, feeble mind.... its a no brainer

    Who knows if he makes it or not..... at best he is a long shot IMHO, having ANY level of trust in this guy to be even depth level seems risky to me. I hope he makes it....... I just see a lost kid there

    In my book, he wont survive this camp Not a safety, not a CB......... time to move on

    I think chance to be a liability is a nice way of saying it........it actually has a chance to be a disaster for this team.

    As you see, I am saying he is the one that should be ok...... BUT.... CAN be a difference maker and actually BEING a difference maker are 2 differnt things I think you would agree, that the CB spot, even with Wilson starting is a question (and thin) at best.... right? I hope it works...... but in a league that is a passing league these days, having ONE CB that could be able to start on another team, where injuries are common, is risky at best.

    I respectfully disagree with the state of the DBs. Again....... respectfully..... from what I have seen you are an intelligent poster The thing is....... we all know that we will go through part of this year with one or more of these folks will be injured. IT JUST SEEMS TO HAPPEN TO THE COLTS if it were me, there is NO WAY, that i am going in to the season with these DBs alone. Safety spot I have very little trust in the abilty of Geathers to stay on the field......... history says that he gets hurt The coaches are hopeful that Malik can come back 100% by season start......... hopeful I am hopeful... but HOPE IS NOT A PLAN!! WHY NOT actually sign Boston (vs letting him come here to play bb) or a "non-kneeling" Ried?????? CBs spot From my view we have ONE starter at CB, with no real competition in the group. 2 of the 3 could not start for 80% of the league. the 3 arent proven by a long shot. Quincy has a bit of a headcase.......... I think he will do ok, but when you see that he couldnt make it to the field last year on a poor db group........ we shouldnt have 100% trust .... and he is our "fo sure" starter Many of the defensive packages require 3 CBs......... what do we do when one (or two) goes down for a stretch (it will happen) WHY NOT offer Breeland a 2 year deal? steps.... that Deano would do...... Step 1 - Move John Simon to SSLB - Today! - Morrison ?? Glacier speed....... or a 7th round pick LB?? - Give Simon a shot at SSLB Step 2 - Sign Breeland Step 3 - Sign Reid (or Boston) IMHO... these 3 steps, with Luck being healthy make this team a top5 AFC team, with a shot to win a playoff game We are starting on a week long drive accross the country with 3 bald tires....... I HOPE its ok....... but sheeze We have cash falling out of our wallet, and coupons for Goodyear...... why not stop and get some dang tires??? We have a BOATLOAD of available cash......... Why not use 10-20% of it?????? IMHO I am excited as we have improved or built a solid, group of WRs, OL, DL, TEs, RBs, QB ......... we are WEAK at DBs and LBs I am sure CB has been waiting for this post, and will immediatly take these steps!!!! or not Deano

    Tyquan Lewis bowl game.

    He has trouble disengaging from OL. In college, if an OL, got both of his hands on him, he was unable to break away The good OL absolutly mauled him. I dont see him EVER being a starter I get the potential status, and can see the need for a fresh body to come off the bench to pass rush at the end of games, but at that pick, there were some CBs and LBs that could have been picked that would be the favorite to start for this defense Love my Colts, Love the Buckeyes, I just didnt like the pick at the time I hope I am wrong though......... He will probably get 34 sacks this year
