Ball State CB Jeff Garret, April 16 Colts Workout


Recommended Posts

how come the ravens insider knows so much about us?  :thinking:  :dunno: 

 

He's kinda life Adam Schefter or Ian Rapoport. I'd probably rank him 3rd behind those 2 in breaking news and insider access

This dude breaks the smallest of news stories as well, whereas Schefter and Rap cover basically mid-high tier level deals. I'm pretty sure this guy updates when players are cut from the practice squad lol.

Not that I pretend to know every player....   I certainly don't.

 

But I never heard of Jeff Garrett of Ball State until today.

 

And he's not the first guy we've brought in for a work out that I know little or nothing about.

 

So, when the Colts are linked to a player like that, I assume we're targeting them for the 6th or 7th round, or more likely, Free Agency.

 

The guys we're looking at for rounds 2/3/5 should be obvious to everyone.....

2nd Team All-MAC

 

Thanks.

 

Got it.

 

Like I said,  rounds 6, 7 or free agent.

 

NOTE:   Just to be safe, I just checked him out on both NFL.com and ESPN.com

 

On the NFL.com page with all Ball State players, and the page with all the cornerbacks of all schools, Garrett isn't listed on either.

 

On the ESPN.com page he's listed on the Ball State team page and he's listed on the cornerbacks page.

He's the 85th ranked corner.    5'9" 185 with an estimated 40 of 4.55

 

Feels very free agent-like to me..........

 

EDIT:   Apologies to Princeton Tiger....   I hope my post didn't come across too snarky.   Was not trying to give you a hard-time.    Only trying to give some background on the kid.   Hey, we have a level of interest.  There's no denying that.    The question is......   how much interest?    I was only trying to address that.

 

Hope that clarifies.........

Only chance we have in getting Fuller is if we traded up to the end of the first rd. And that's not really a possibility!

 

I was thinking that, why would we workout Fuller when it's unlikely that he will fall to us?

We're just exploring all options I presume. Maybe he floors us and if he falls enough we do trade up? Not likely, but you gotta check out everything. And I doubt GMs really pay attention to the media's mock drafts so who really knows where we think Fuller is going?

The only thing I can figure is a trade up or that the media is way over rating where Fuller will be selected.

 

They may not pay attention to the media's Mock Drafts but at the same time they have to be somewhat aware of where a player will be selected and what their chances are of actually being able to draft that player.

I actually think Garret is a bit of a sleeper as a dime back who might work best in the slot. He's not slow, but he's more quick than fast, understands positioning and has solid hands.  I think he has enough skill to be considered in the back end of the draft.

 

He's a home state workout, so he's a freebie to bring in. I'm from Muncie, the same city as Ball State is in, so I've seen a bit of him.

    • Yep! They didn't want to stand in way of him going to MLB, so they traded him for just that   And this is my age 23 year. And will have at least 5 games by second week of June    I enjoy going to hockey games, last I went to, last month, blues scored 9 times most in ten years
    • Ras is overrated when you look at his tape it screams playmaker
    • We still talking first 10 games East?   Colts finished 6-2 over their last eight games to squeak into the playoffs.  Rookie Jonathan Taylor was Indy’s most important player during that stretch, as he averaged 117 rushing yards per game on 5.71 yards per carry to go with nine touchdowns.  The Colts should be very excited about Taylor heading into next season and beyond, as he finished third in the league in rushing yards as a rookie that didn't even get going until wk 10!  What else do I have to say to Colts fans to not be "All Fan Boy" at this time??
    • I love this picture. TY and Parris when they talk in interviews seem to have a very close relationship. TY says he talks to Parris everyday. Some of the videos being posted over the last couple days it looks like Parris is flying.    
    • I agree with you, easily top 5 and should be top 3.  I think a lot depends on how much respect the D gives Carson Wentz, if they stack 8 men in the box I don't care if your D Henry you will be contained.  Funny you mentioned the Jags, how did that 1st game work out for us East?  Sometimes it comes down to the coaching staff committing to running the damn ball and just like the Jags game you can put the Steelers game in there as well.     You had a whole entire season to digest the play of Jonathon Taylor and I don't understand how a Colts fan is not all "FAN BOY" at this moment East?  Your Football IQ is very high to know that the first 10 wks of JT career was very Trent Richardson like but if you know anything about the game and studied what coaches or even himself has said about his turnaround, you would see the ALL PRO talent that is about to be unleashed in front of you.  Of course, if Wentz is a bust and 10 man boxes are a steady diet then all bets are off.
