Nt Prospects?


Recommended Posts

I thought he was an Under Tackle like Nevis?

Nope he played in the A-gap and sometimes over center for LSU, which is the NT. I read a scouting report on mocking the draft about him, and he looks very good. He is a bit raw and not fully developed yet, but he has tons of potential and upside. We use a rotation at DT so he would be a great fit in my opinion. Right now, I'd say he and Brandon Thompson are my 2 top NT's right now.

Thompson is not very impactful in the run game, however; with Freeney, Thompson, Nevis, Mathis, that would be a pass rushing machine from the front four!

yeah we can def snag him in the 3rd or 4th unless he moves up thru the combine pro days etc etc

I would be all for that selection, would ideally like to get him the fourth, but would like to see someone like Poe selected earlier! As Short is more of a solid player than an instant impact player.

Oh come on, Brandon Thompson has been a good run stopper this year. That's what most people say about him. I agree that would be an explosive D-line, but I still think your underating Thompson's ability to hold the point of attack and stop the run.

Michael Brockers scouting report makes him very enticing though. I'm still stuck between those 2. Dontari Poe is my 3rd choice right now.

I would take any of the three, whether that be through a trade down or picking one in the second round. But, Thompson is a Kevin Williams, he is a penetrating Nose Tackle, he is not great against the run, even the CBS scouting report backs what I say, they are calling him another Drake Nevis on that report! Brockers has huge upside, I think he is more like Thompson, more of a penetrator... I am fine with that, either one of these guys, but, I would prefer bigger linebackers then....

thats why I like Kawann Short the guy is like a polar bear on the line the lane stuffer that we need but he can also penetrate and all though he doesnt have many pass rush moves I think he goes perfect with Nevis and our other pass rushing DTs

I enjoyed watching him play, I like him as a 4th round NT in a rotation.

    • Don't forget this Sunday's game on Fox 59 at 7:30 pm I think!
    • Im sorry I’m responding a little late….   But I took the time to re-view the 25 minute Luck press conference, and the 25 minute conference from Irsay, Ballard and Reich.    Luck says his final decision was made roughly 10-14 days before the announcement, and the execs say they knew 7-10 days ahead and the week leading up to the game was filled with almost daily conversations.  I don’t know where you got that the front office found out “that day.”    I’ve never seen that claim made by anyone else here, and there’s been plenty of mis-information put out there about Luck.    Also….  Luck didn’t participate in any team activities the entire off-season.   Zero in the Spring.   Zero in training camp.  At the presser Ballard talked about the strange off-season saying Luck ended the 2018 season feeling pretty good, then something happened at the Pro Bowl that no one could pin down.  Ankle sprain?   High ankle sprain? Shin?    No one knew.   So the team knew something was up.     Ultimately, Luck did a bad job at his press conference explaining things, and the media did a poor job of getting enough details to write a good story so people could understand.    But I’d add, that no one in the Colts seems angry with Luck.   Not Irsay, or Ballard, or Reich, or players.   No one.    Yet people here think Luck screwed the team.   A guy driven to do the right thing all his life, and yet fans here are convinced he did the wrong thing.   I confess that disappoints me.   It’s as if people never learned anything about Andrew Luck beyond his wins and losses.  I find that sad….  
    • Like most surface fans? Not sure what kind of shot ur trying to take here but okay. As for the points, there aren't really any intelligble ones to respond to. In both instances Wentz gives the ball to the other team at the very end of the game. In both TEN matchups. Also, in those specific plays there were checkdowns available.    Reich kind of took blame for one, saying he shouldn't of called a TE screen so close to the end zone. But I guess i'm just a surface fan, even though I consistently talk on a colts fan forum, frequent multiple other sites where many people post a plethora of uncensored opinions about the colts, attend games frequently, and I understand football more than most casual people.    I don't sit on the board and pretend to speak some scheme specific terminology, but I know what football looks like. And with that being said, it is easy for anyone to see that Wentz consistently put our defense in bad positions, and tried to play hero ball despite not being very good at it.  As for how that applies to this specific thread; I think having a more sensible QB on the roster will make our Oline look a lot better.    Also, as i've stated multiple times, I do recognize our offensive line had issues. However, that doesn't takeaway the reality of 2sprainz and the type of game he wanted to play, even at the cost of his own team. 
    • She can talk some smack on analytics. Smarter than most of the hot take reporters / personalities out there. And she's super hot.  Highly doubt it happens, but we have a lot of things that could realistically fall our way.
