Grigson continuing to try & improve the offensive line. Even if this guy turns out to be nothing, can't take away the effort Grigson has been putting in for both lines on both sides of the ball his offseason from the moment the offseason clock started

He'll gain weight.

 

But he shouldn't be 300 until next year.

 

He won't (or shouldn't) be 300 by camp.    That's too much weight way too fast.    It won't be good weight.

 

Feels like a candidate for the practice squad for 2 years...  or even three.    And that's fine.   As long as the kid wants to get better, he appears to have good tools to work with.

 

Good for Grigson.    Good for the Colts.     Like it!    :thmup:

I see him fighting for a spot in the OL rotation not stuck on the PS with his prior Football Experience

This is the guy we need to block kicks :)

 

Seriously, There is not much to read about him online other than his college basketball days

 

Being too tall can be a deficit from some especially underweight ones. Their center of gravity is exploited and easily forced back, lets hope he is an exception

His current weight is a bit misleading because he just finished the basketball season

With WHAT football background do you see him fighting for a spot in the rotation?

 

From what I can tell here,  he last played football in high school.

He should know the basics

Unlike Swoope and Adongo he will not need to learn the basics of the sport during his early mini camps and TC

Why do we keep signing basketball players? We signed Erik Swoope and last year he wasn't too great for us given the limited number of downs he played (Im probably wrong so correct me if I am)

Oh my bad, I didn't see that DeMarco Cox was a heavily recruited high school football player, my bad!

I see what you mean but to be honest I am waiting for more NFL teams to sign 6'2"-6'4" off guard small forwards to play corner in the NFL(ones who are strong and can defend anyways).  They are obviously atheltic and have good size, why not take a chance on them defending receivers?  Most of them probably aren't going to make it to the NBA.  I understand basketball is way different than football but I can see this happening in the future.

Because of guys like Antonio Gates, Jimmy Graham, Joe Reitz, Julius Green and others everyone is trying it

Most top level College PF/C types were also very good Football Receivers

Erik Swoope played zero downs for us last year, considering he was on the PS all year. So, I guess you're half right.

    • First of all, I'd say bad fit for us. He's a 3-4 DE. In our system he'd be a tweener, or maybe even a 3T.  Great against the run, average vs the pass. Very solid 3 down guy overall in a 3-4.   IMO, even if he was a fit, we don't need run D help, and he'd be too expensive. Overall just not the benefit and value we need.    
    • Here's what we did on another board a few years ago. Worked out pretty good. 1 Round per evening 2 windows each night... picks 1-16, and then 17-32 (I think it was 7p-8p and 9-10, but could have been 8-9 and 10-11). That way, guys new pretty much when they needed to be there, and only needed to pay attention for roughly an hour per day. Really not even that long. Also gave the mods some time between windows to tidy up. 3 minute clock hence the "flash" term. If you miss a pick, you drop 5 spots (basically giving them an extra 15 minutes). If they missed it a second time, they get bumped to the end of the round and have up to an hour before the next days round starts. If they miss that, they get best player based on their primary needs.  We had 3 threads going at once, and 3 moderators. One thread for the pick announcements and general comments, one with a constantly updated order and big board, and one to manage trades. The big board management was great in terms of keeping it going and checking off who is gone. We also published team needs, but I can't remember if we tracked it except for using it when folks missed their window. Only trades allowed are pick for pick(s) so very little approval needed. No picks for existing players (We did the mock post FA fury, I think we started about 2 weeks prior to the draft).
    • I didn't say he could be as good as Leonard. I said pretty clearly that if Leonard was 95/100 That I think Oke's ceiling is about 86-90.    By in which I also added that any team would be alright that that level of play. I think you are misunderstanding. Because we both seem to agree that Oke will more than likely be a pretty darn good player. 
    • Again, I don’t doubt one bit he can turn out to be a good player. He has the traits. I watched him often when he was at Stanford... his name was not foreign to me come draft time. I was excited about Ballard loading up at linebacker which is a position we have plugged guys off the street before.    I just simply called out the inconsistency of saying he could be a good as Leonard (again, highly, HIGHLY unlikely) and then turn around saying that he could be “pretty good.”    do you know who didn’t need time to be great? Darius Leonard. THAT is the difference. Give Leonard time and see where he goes. My guess is the Hall of Fame.
