Is this guy sticking out to anyone else on here? I'm falling in love with this guys motor and his ability to split the line and create havoc. He's the one guy I'm rooting for to make the practice squad this year. I think he could end up being a fine rotational player if he continued to grow. Thoughts?

I see him on the 53 man squad

Agreed, he's shown more than McKinney and I can't see him going a season unclaimed.

The one play where he just annihilated the interior line with pure strength for the sack? Hnnnng.

He earned himself a job last night. Even if he doesn't make our final roster, there should be at least a handful of teams putting in a waiver claim on him. He looked better than anyone who was put in front of him yesterday.

Kerr is a keeper.  The Colts need to make room on the 53-man roster for him.  Based on what he did against NYG, he wouldn't even clear waivers to make it to the practice squad.  Most 3-4 NTs are built to take on two blockers and clog up the middle against the run, but how many of them have the power to collapse the pocket with a bull rush and the speed to sack the QB on passing plays?

I liked him even before we drafted him. It'd be nice to see us rotate guys a lot up front like Seattle does, to help keep the front 7 from playing tired.

We do that now, but it's mostly between the 3/4 4/3 personnel.

I think those guys get more wear on their legs running on and off the field than they do playing.

Has he gone against any first team competition yet? He did look good and I'd rather have a young guy, but I'm not sure he's been tested much yet.

 

With him not being in the first team rotation, I think it's going to be hard for him to see action against our opponents first team. With the versatility of Hughes, Jones, and RJF, along with Chapman and Redding, those guys are going to get the majority of the snaps at first. However, with him clearly outperforming the other teams 2's and 3's, I don't think we have to worry about him if he's thrown into the fire early on. Get his feet wet, then turn him loose when he's absolutely needed. Kerr, this year, could be like Pendleton was for us last year. Mr. McKinney looks to be the obvious choice as the odd man out right now.

Kerr > McKinney

 

I loved that we picked Kerr up from the get go, and can't believe he went undrafted. 

 

 

 

No way we could stash him, San Diego would be all over him lol. 

San Diego or Colts West? It's hard to tell the difference now.

According to PFF, Zach Kerr was our highest rated defensive player in the game with a +3.5 overall, +2.0 run defense, +1.3 pass rush in 48 total plays - 15 run, 33 pass.

Second highest on defense... Dewey McDonald. Followed by Lou I believe.  UDFA or bust

 If they PS him they deserve to lose him. He sticks out like a sore thumb.

I think McKinny might be the odd man out if -- and it's a big if -- we only have 6 defensive lineman.

 

But, I think we'll go with 7....   which means both McKinney and Kerr would make it.

Basically this, though there's still 2 games left.

Many of the guys filling out the back end of the depth chart still have a long way to go to make the team, including Kerr.

He has made the 53. No doubt; he is a keeper!

This guy MUST be on the active roster. He won't clear wavers. I was at the game tonight, and his presence is palpable. He was a one man show most of the second half. Not to mention, he has tremendous versatility with the ability to play all three positions along the line. He is a hands down keeper for me.

    • I'm guessing most of you remember me well. I wasn't in a good place a few months ago before I stopped posting on the forum. I probably annoyed some people and made some enemies. For that, I'm sorry. I've had to get away from here for a while, and just spend some time evaluating my life. Been working on my people skills, living life to the fullest, getting comfortable finacially, and just getting right with myself mentally and emotionally.    I have spent a little time here and there looking at FA as it has happened. Same thing with the draft. I have a lot to learn in less than two weeks though. My main focus was improving myself though, and now I think I'm finally back on a stable level where I can communicate at a normal level with people again. I'm ready to have fun again. We have a possible new franchise QB with Carson Wentz, most of our team is still intact, and we have some new depth on the trenches with less than two weeks to go before the draft.   To the Mods, I apologize for my behavior the last couple months before I stopped posting. I wasn't in the right frame of mind at all. I needed some help. I even created another account to try and eliminate myself and just start over so the problem wouldn't exist and everyone would forget about me. I'm sorry for doing that too. I'm going to do my very best to be a great poster from now on, and I can't wait to start chatting with everyone again. No matter how well I got along with each and every one of you or not. All I ask is a 2nd chance.   Thanks for reading this, and I'll see you guys on the forums!   ~Jared
