Colts meetings with draft prospects (merge)

Recommended Posts

Two confirmed so far. Try to add the rest here if/when you come across them. Just as a reference, not discussion about particular players. Thanks.
 

@PatDStat: Jeremiah Poutasi OL Utah, has talked with the #Lions, #Texans and #Colts. Has a meeting set up with the #Chiefs on Wednesday.

The draft creates some opportunities to acquire talent at center. Reese Dismukes of Auburn and Hroniss Grasu of Oregon are two of the best. (Dismukes said he's already had a meeting with the Colts.)

 
One of the top rated centers in the draft, has a 2/3 grade in some places. I like him. He's strong, mobile, seems aware, can get to the second level, can turn interior linemen to create running lanes. Doesn't mean we will or should draft him.

I wish there we some Defensive players on the list although I don't really think the list means a whole lot.

I like Poutasi, I believe he's a LG who can play LT in a pinch in the NFL

I try to be interested in the players at the combine but keeping track is kind of hard to do. I don't get my hopes up for any player or players because it makes no difference. Grigson will have is board made up no matter what my thoughts are on it. I know it's off season and we need things to keep our Colt fix going but I will wait till after the draft to see who the Colts have picked. I am not much on making my mind up on draft picks till year 2 or 3. Getting bent out of shape over draft picks does me no good.

I understand what you're saying, but there's a world of difference between getting bent out of shape over the Combine, and enjoying it for what it is. To me, it's not just filler, I actually like the pre-draft process. It's kind of weird, but I like the minutiae of the offseason, even if I wish it would all go by more quickly. So it's kind of exciting to know who the team is meeting with, whose pro days they're going to, etc. You're right, it probably doesn't matter, but I like it nonetheless.

I know we met with T.J. Clemmings at the senior bowl. Did we meet with Mewhort, Moncrief, or Newsome last year?

That's cool. I just don't seem to find the time to take close looks at most of the players coming out. I do study and pay attention to the picks after the draft for sure. I guess what I am doing is preparing myself for the negative that comes from those who have a problem with whom ever Grigson takes. From some comments he knows zero about making picks and getting players for the Colts, even though history tells a different story. That is what is so aggravating sometimes. You can very well understand that more than most.

I would love Ameer. I believe he can be a 3 down back.

Only thing I don't like about him is the Fumbles, 23 in his collage career. Had 4 last season (same as coleman).

So did it take you 2 or 3 years to make your mind up on Luck :)

I'm with you...I don't have the time nor the care to follow it closely at all. I just wait for the draft and will always be fairly content whomever the colts select...I'm sure they know well better than I do that is for sure. Just frustrating only when you know we need certain player positions filled and then they take players we are already deep at you know ?

It would have done no good who I had my mind made up about. Grigson and Irsay are the ones who make those choices. The only comment I can say is I am glad Luck decided to finish he collage before coming out to the draft. He would have been the #1 pick for the Panthers. That would have been a tough choice at the time with Luck and Newton both coming out at the same time.

Not even close. No more than rg3 was.

Ameer Abdullah is a solid runner but has major issues with fumbles. As a Nebraska fan enjoyed watching and the guy can make you miss and with juke moves. I would rather see the Colts target Michigan States RB instead. Overshadowed by other Big 10 players but still garnered more yards after initial contact and 100 yard games but has troubles running into his own players. Not sold on Indiana's RB...

Darren Waller is on the list!

I would love for us to draft him and try him as a tight end. Maybe he cam become a Jimmy Graham II.

Why aren't there more DLs on that list!?!? They need to use at least 2, maybe 3 picks on the defensive line!

They don't feel that way. Pagano mentioned Hughes, Kerr, Quarles, and Pendleton as talented players that could progress this season.

It would be a mistake to pass on a DL player if he were higher rated than say a S, CB, WR, ILB when it was the Colts pick. There are talented players on the DL this year so we shouldn't have the mentality to think we don't need to add to the DL.

Well....   there certainly won't be 3 draft picks used....   and I don't know why you think there would be?   The Colts have lots of other needs as well.

 

2 is possible,  but certainly not better than a 50-50 shot...

 

1 draft pick seems a lock.

 

But at the owners conference, Grigson expressed confidence in what we already have on the roster, including Kerr and Quarles and Hughes as guys who he expects to see much more from...

There are a lot of positions needed before a TE is drafted IMO. The Colts already have one of the best TE combinations in the NFL. Fleener, Allen and Doyle are good enough not to pick a TE in the draft.

    • I think I know what you're talking about, that s#*t escalated quickly....   I didnt have a problem with your initial statement, I knew what you were driving at.  I can sympathize with with the fact that you could wish you had used different words though. That said, it wasn't nearly as personal, hateful, or damaging as some of the rhetoric it inspired.   It's a football forum after all and your initial comment should have been viewed through that lens imo.  Unfortunately we're living through a heartbreaking incident, a legitimate tragedy, and tensions are at a peak nationwide.    I appreciate you "being the bigger man" (or woman idk you personally and thus it's a mystery).  For whatever its worth though, apology accepted.   Go Colts
    • Out of the franchises that have never won a SB, to me it comes down to 3 teams that were the best = the 1984 Dolphins, 1990 Bills, and your 1998 Vikings. Those teams had would it took but just didn't finish. We didn't finish in 2005 but did in 2006 thankfully. I hate losing, when we lost in 2005 I even had my doubts we would win 'The 1'. Besides being great, it takes a lot of luck to win 1. Look at the Colts run in 2006, 5 Vinny FG's at Baltimore, come from behind win to beat the Pats after being down 21-3. It was just meant to happen. When Bob Sanders came back I knew deep down we were the favorites but the AFC was so deep that year I didn't want to jinx it.
    • As a Vikings fan with no big hope for the near future, I can attest you're absolutely right.    Yeah, one could always look at how they're team could've won more.    But only few have the presence of mind to know how winning that one is such a big feat.    If Randy Moss had won one for the Vikings especially '98 season, fans would think he should have got us more. But, now we know even getting there in the big game is not a given for all greats. It's difficult to think from that perspective after you have won 1 or more.
    • Just wanted to give you a like. Welcome to the forum.   Definitely hoping for health, but we are 5-6 deep at DE, with Autry/Lewis/Muhammed
    • 40. Tua Tagovailoa 39. Dwayne Haskins 38. Mitchell Trubisky 37. Justin Herbert 36. Taysom Hill 35. Jarred Stidham 34. Tyrod Taylor 33. Jameis Winston 32. Case Keenum 31. Nick Foles     This list is just ugly.    Makes me wonder where Burrow is going to end up?
