I'm starting to think Te'o would be a great addition


Recommended Posts

Up until the Bama game, I thought he was an amazing playmaker with great instincts. Then I watched him on NFL net last night, and now I dont think the Bama gm was that bad. His DLine was abused. If Warmack and those guys are got there hands on Ray Lewis in his prime, same thing would've happened. He showed a nose for

the ball at times and just missed tackles.

Long story short, let's hop aboard the Te'o Train. Who's comin with me?

Good player, not worth a first round pick. Would he start for us day 1? Maybe, but we have greater needs.

i don't think it will happen but i am on the train to. how are the waffles? do they have Bacon?

Of course they have bacon. The waffles are delicious. And we can sit wherever we want. I think I see Grigson waiting at the next stop. He looks hungry, and I know he smells the waffles.

Yes, Mr. Crack Under Pressure

You said it in the original post. Up until the Bama game........ see right there is when you stop. Big time players make plays in big games

You can't handle the spotlight? Then you don't need to be on this team who will be in the spotlight 4, count it..... FOUR times this season

I won't be riding the Te'o train. Eddie Lacy may not be great, but he's pretty good at running through tackles. Lacy's 220lb frame, and 4.5 speed, exposed Te'o's weeknesses. Te'o has great instincts, but his footwork is bad, and only gets to the sideline based on instincts, and not with physical talent. When he gets his hands on you, you're caught, that is of course, unless you're E.Lacy...

Yet another in depth and well thought examination of a players ability.

So I'm sitting on this big train all by myself? They have waffles

No you definitely aren't on the train by yourself.

It's crazy how people let 1 game, albeit a bad game, destroy 4 years of leadership and production. Teo would be an immediate upgrade to an average MLB group at best.

Freeman was a welcomed surprise, Angerer is straddling the fence of of Injury Prone and Conner although a tough cookie is no way the answer.

Teo has the baggage of the nasty hoax stuff but its getting really old to make him the butt of jokes. "Cracks under pressure" is a hefty statement, dude had the cahones to sit in front of the world and talk about it on Katie Couric. That takes guts.

Yea he had a horrific combine but ask yourself, would you honestly be able to perform at your best with all the crap he was dealing with in that 2-3 month span? I'd doubt it.

Let this guy get back to football, with a great coach in Coach Pagano and let him be the leader of the D. If Teo is on the board at 24, no way would a player as decorated as he is slip through Grigsons grasp.

P.S. I'm a pancake guy.

Someone shoot the conductor

 

Actually the Conductor does not "drive" the train, the Engineer does. The Conductor is responsible for communications, safety, and tracking the trains progress and the Engineer focuses on operating the train.

Honestly I could care less about the draft. I don't really care to pull for drafting someone.

So if we draft Teo then he is a Colt. Until then I could care less about names in college football.

The draft represents the future of every franchise. There is nothing greater to get excited about than the future of your franchise. But, to each his own.

I understand the possible future is fun for some people, but it just isn't me.

 

I get the whole "well in 5 years he will give us the best chance." Well that's nice for my future self in 5 years, but that does nothing for me now. What gives us the best option in the immediate future is what I care more for.

 

Likw you said, to each their own.

The only reason I probably wouldn't draft him at #24 is because of the diminishing value of the ILB in the modern game... they are simply not held in the same regard as DTs and pass rushers, and thus it could be conceived as a reach.

 

However, he is easily one of the best football players in this draft class, a lot of people forget that that is kind of the point... to play football.

Prior to him being "catfished" & the Alabama game he wouldn't even be considered a possibility at 24 because he'd already be off the board...

With that said there are some other options that are more intriguing to me personally, but Grigs could do a lot worse than draft Teo...

He may not be as talented as he looks at the college level, and probably more to the Teo story than meets the eye.  NFL teams probably care more about those issues than we think.  Just because the story has gotten tired in the media doesn't mean that its impact as a core character issue is lost on GM's selecting in the 1st Rd.

honestly i have no issue in drafting Te'o. even with the 24th pick. everyone can say if we " trade down " then yeah they wouldn't mind taking him, thing is he could be gone with the 23rd or 25th pick (if Minnesota does not trade either one) because Minnesota likes Te'o not to mention they have a thing in drafting them, especially the last couple of years. for example they drafted Tight Ends Kyle Rudolph and John Carlson Safeties Robert Blanton and Harrison Smith, and center John Sullivan.  so i would not be surprised if he does not make it past minnesota anyway.

    • I'm happy to indifferent with FA. Obviously, we have to pay our guys. One thing I would of done differently is not sign Hilton, and allocate that money towards an EDGE rusher. Of course, we could always sign Houston back still before the draft, but I'm not fully expecting it. Wouldn't be surprised if that's the plan at this point though, and we mostly go with last years team, replace Rivers with Wentz, minus Autry and Walker, and draft some new players to fill the weaknesses.    In any case, I love the draft, and expect us to gain a couple extra picks at some point. Ballard won't just go with 6 total picks. That's not his forte.
    • When I saw the Carson Wentz trade go down, and the compensation we gave up, I paid attention to the Bears more than any non-Colts team. They were in a similar situation as us team-wise, draft-pick wise (20th pick to 21st pick), and we both had interest in Wentz. After we got him, you saw the Bears were immediately helpless. Wentz was gone, no solid QBs left in FA, the Wilson trade fell through, and they had to sign Andy Dalton. That could be us.   We got Wentz for peanuts considering we are picking 21st and didn't have to give up our 1st and/or 2nd rounder this year. If Wentz gets hurt, we have a bit of insurance from losing our 1st rounder in 2022. That's the best move of 2021 so far. If you don't believe me, look at the Bears forums and how they reacted when they signed Dalton instead of trading for Wilson. They wish they were the Colts right now.

    • This is my 1st attempt at one of these so far, and I have little information right now, but I'll try and do the best I can. Hoping to crank out 3 of these by the time the draft begins on the 29th.   Round 1.) Kwity Paye, EDGE, Michigan- I realize we need a LT very badly. However, I believe Darrisaw will go before 21, and Teven Jenkins is more of a RT than a LT. That's why we choose Paye in the 1st. He is by far the best EDGE in the class to me, fits the scheme from what I've seen, and can start immediately on a team that is extremely weak at the position after missing out on re-signing Autry and possibly Houston.    Round 2.) Liam Eichenberg, OT, Notre Dame- He may or may not fall to us in the 2nd round, but there will be a OT or two that does fall, and I'll assume for the sake of this mock draft, that he's the guy who falls to us. Eichenberg is solid at everything, just not great. He reminds me of Anthony Costanzo and I think he can start right away for us at LT. This would solidify the line for a long time after we paid Braden and Quenton.   Round 4.) Monty Rice, ILB, Georgia- I haven't studied him a lot yet, but I think he'd make a very good Anthony Walker replacement in the LBer group. EJ Speed and Glasgow aren't good enough to start behind Okereke IMO or start if he goes down due to injury, so that's where Monty Rice comes in.   Round 5.) Bobby Brown, DT, Texas A&M- Excellent run defender that plays well in a 4-3 defense. Very solid scheme fit that can possibly get playing time on running downs. Only downside is he's not a 3 down player, but with Buckner and Grover starting, it really shouldn't matter.   Round 6.) Rachad Wildgoose, CB, Wisconsin- He is more of a slot corner than anything else, but he can play any scheme. Only played two games last year due to injury, but that's why he fell. Very intelligent player that has room to improve, and with Rhodes and Carrie under 1 year contracts, they'll be no pressure during his first year for him.   Round 7.) Dax Milne, WR, BYU- Dax can play in any scheme and can also play special teams. Solid route runner who can catch the ball. He's very quick and can make big plays.   Let me know what you think below!
