What Positions Will The Colts Focus On?


Recommended Posts

Too early to tell right now but who or what positions do you think the Colts will target or focus on in next years draft?

We need to focus more on the defensive side of the ball. We had a hard time stopping the run last year and special teams hurt us!!!!

I think they may want to focus on WR, LB, and CB. You can also expect them to get a OL in the later rounds, with perhaps a DL.

Awesome....takin' the board out for an early spin.

I'll pick up right where I left off with part of the wishlist (in no specific order):

1. S. Bullitt is apparently on a one year deal & we have unprovens behind him & Bethea.

2. OL. Jeff Saturday and Ryan Diem might be gone in 2012 and we'll need depth.

3. DE. If Mathis isn't affordable Hughes will move up & we'd still need depth. Plus, Freeney's last contract year (11th) is 2013...and if a Colt kinda guy is available they might get him.

4. DT. Depending on how much our current rotation evolves.

5. WR. I expect Reggie to get a 3yr deal and this is a good time to groom a new #1 to phase in & stretch field.

6. LB. Depth.

7. CB or RB. Can never have enough.

We'll see how drastic the changes are 7 months from now, haha

i think this is the year we go QB because this is one complex offense and if we want to start grooming the successor to peyton i say giving him four years to learn the system and learn behind peyton is plenty of time to take over the reign personally i like landry jones from oklahoma if he comes out his junior year

1. Bullit signed a 3 year deal

2. Diem is probably gone next year, but Saturday is staying until Peyton is gone, but he's probably not leaving next year.

3. With Manning's new contract, we can easily resign Mathis, but at a reasonable price that makes both people happy. Don't worry about Freeney right now.

4. I agree we need a DT

5. If they don't want to resign Reggie they should draft a WR, but I think they will which means they don't draft a WR.

6. We have depth, we need a starter.

7. You can never have enough CBs, different story with the RBs. We have too many right now... Addai, James, Carter, Spann, and if they resign Brown, Brown too.

It's bound to change in 7 months, however.

1. one yr deal is what was reported earlier today if he got more great

2. Tell ya what Andy, if Saturday gets a five year deal I'll stay off this board for two months. If he doesn't you have to stay off here for two months. What do ya say? Game? Put this thread on follow & we'll see what happens during the course of the year.

3. I play chess, not checkers.

4. so what

5. yadda yadda yadda

6. blah blah blah

7. James will be on the PS where he belongs, that leaves 4...and one report said Spann's only chance to make the team was on special teams. We'll see.

Don't bother responding directly to me on any of this except No. 2 because it'll be a waste of time.

I don't care what you say, I'm responding.

1. http://www.sbnation.com/nfl/2011/7/27/2298785/melvin-bullitt-colts-nfl-free-agency

2. I never said Jeff Saturday is going to be resigned for 5 years. He may get a 1 or 2 year deal next year, point is, he' retiring a Colt.

3, 4, 5, and 6. Very nice argument

7. The guy had 6 touchdowns last year, most on the team, Hart is gone, and he's a great red zone back, he's staying on the active roster. Spann is a question mark

I have no idea what you have against me, but you always love to take shots at me for no apparent reason.

I wouldn't be surprised if we go QB next year. I don't think next year is the right time, I think the year after that is the year to start looking at QBs seriously. O-line might be a need, but we have Saturday and Diem's replacements on the team already if you ask me. I wouldn't be surprised if we went that way for depth though. LB might be a need, DT should be our first round pick if you ask me. However, it is nearly impossible to tell, it all depends on how the season plays out this year. What is Nevis and Moala become great at stuffing the run, do we really need a DT then? It's too early to tell as of now

Don't think they go QB. I saw an article just after Peyton signed the new contract that said his replacement is probably a senior in high school right now. I think he is probably a freshman in college.

I think they will look hard at wideouts for the eventual retirement of Reggie. I also think that LB and DB will be areas of emphasis. Middle rounds could see DL.

The position that is most likely to be drafted is BPA.

We did get some FA shots at DT that I think will do alright for us this year. What we will need to focus on next year imo is LB and CB with a shot at an early WR pick. Yes, I know we have Garcon, Gonzo and Wayne, but Gonzo won't stay healthy and Wayne's contract is up after this season with no guarantee that Polian will retain him. Whereas I don't see Wayne going anywhere, it is always a possibility. We need to start looking at the QB position within the next 2 years. We are going to need to groom the new QB for at least 3 years. I don't think Painter is ever going to be "OUR GUY". He does alright as a backup, but is definitely not a starter for the Colts complex offensive system. He just doesn't look comfortable enough in the backfield. O-line is finally showing some promise, but even that will be left to interpretation as the year unfolds. Looking fairly set for another good run at it long as everybody stays healthy. Get well Manning. I want to see you out there before week 1 if at all possible.

Blue and White!

if thats true then i dont see us staying with the control offense we are use to seeing since hes probably either gonna be drafted the last year peyton will be in the league or the year he retires

This always baffles me. A guy gets 2-3 reps an entire season, and we just expect him to jump in like he's been doing it all season. I've said before, and I'll say it again, Painter's best chance to prove himself is this preseason. He's been practicing with the 1s, and should have plenty of reps with the 1s over the next few weeks.

Do you watch Preseason games at all? Every preseason game Painter has ever gotten reps in has had the same results. Sub-par results against another team's 2's. HE'S NOT COMFORTABLE in the pocket and doesn't have a good feel for said pocket collapsing. Preseason is HIS time to shine and he has failed more often than not. Like I said, he's decent, but not "OUR GUY". The next 2 years will be ample time to find a good QB prospect and start the grooming process.

As an aspiring scout, I see too many players in college that just make plays, who are good football players, and I dont get caught up in the politics of where they should go, what team, whatever. Here are diamonds.

Week 1. LSU verse Georgia. Big time Game.

Defensive Back Tyran Mathieu

From what I can gather from the film, this guy just makes plays.

He was in almost every play I could find in the Oregon big time game this year.

He broke open the 6 - 3 score against Oregon in the 2nd quarter with a forced fumble returned for a touchdown (He won SEC defensive player of the week for the performance for what it's worth).

He seems to do well at the line of scrimmage, makes turnovers, intercepts passes.

This might be the best player in this year's draft.

Extras:

Freshman year highlights.

Same game LSU Oregeon, Week 1.

Defensive Lineman Sam Montgomery.

Also from that game, #99 was everywhere on the defensive LSU line.

He's smaller but beat his man almost every time, he can stop the run and rush. He's a playmaker.

Name is Sam Montgomery. Has Jason Taylor type body. But makes plays.

Week 2

Georgia verse South Carolina,

Defensive Lineman #6 - Melvin Ingram.

The next guy that stood out was the defensive lineman from carolina (#6) whose fast and of the defensive line mold

the colts like. Today he scored a touchdown via fumble return, scored a touchdown on a fake punt, and

recovered the ball on the onside kick (he was part of the hands team).

Week 2

Tennessee verse Cincinnati

Running back #28 - Tauren Poole.

One run he made last year against Oregon reminded me of

- his name is Tauren Pooole for Tennesee. He's a home run hitter. He's shifty. He can lower his head and get the tough yards. You may run him into a wall 2 out of 3 carries, but that last one will be a burner. He also returns kicks.

This run single handedly shows his ability

.

Here he is verse Oregen.

Thanks for the info, Futurescout.

In terms of positions, I think we go WR in the first round, OG in the second round, CB in the 3rd, and some combination of LB's, additional OG's, and safeties in the rest of the draft.

My bold prediction: we don't draft a DT next year. The Colts felt comfortable enough letting Tommy Harris go in the preseason. I think our DTs play lights out this year. Win.

Here's my wish list:

SS

CB

LB (in the 6'0" to 6'4" range and 240-260 lbs, big physical MLB)

DT (in the 300-320 lb range, a big, physical NT/DT)

WR (I would love to see a big, physical WR in the mold of Calvin Johnson. There will be several good ones coming out next year so I don't think we have to go WR in the first round).

OL (bigger, physical guys who can both run and pass block).

And if we only have 7 picks then go back and pick up an additional of the best player available at any of the above positions.

What we really need to do is evaluate which positions are of the most value to us and then compare with the number of good players at that position. I think there are going to be several LB, DT, WR and several good CB's coming out that fit the molds I described. I think we may wind up going SS in the first round and if so I'd LOVE to see us go after Mark Barron (or Bacarri Rambo if he comes out).

I think we are going to need to let a couple of our big name guys go to try and pick up some additional draft picks. Guys that I think we could get the best picks for that I wouldn't be too terribly upset to part with are Dwight Freeney and Dallas Clark. Don't get me wrong, I love these guys but I have to admit that they are also one-trick ponies so to speak. They are phenominal at their strengths (Freeney at pass rushing and Clark at receiving) but they are almost equally bad against their weaknesses (Freeney at defending the run and Clark with blocking). If we could find a couple of guys who are more balanced then I think we would be in a good position. We'd have to work in getting an additional draft pick though, imo, if we got rid of Clark so we could use the additional pick to go for a more balanced TE in the draft and there will be guys available.

Just for giggles, here's a list of the top players at their positions according to CBSSports draft preview found here http://www.cbssports.com/nfl/draft/prospectrankings/TSX/2012 . Guys in Blue are guys I'm particularly interested. Some of which I've watched play and paid very close attention to and liked what I saw in them.

Also, I don't think we go for QB until Peyton's last year or 2 or maybe even draft a guy the year Peyton actually retires and I say this for a couple of reasons. One is that the best way to give Peyton a chance to win is to put the best possible players around him with the money we have to spend. Spending a lot of money on a backup QB for his last few years would be money we could spend to upgrade another critical position to allow the team a better chance to win while Peyton is still here. Also, the system we run pretty much can't be run by another QB. Peyton is a once in a life-time type of player and in fact I don't know if there has been any QB in history to have as much control in running the offense that Peyton does. His successor will likely not be able to do the things that Peyton does so our system is going to have to be modified to a more traditional and more balanced type of offense. Therefore why put Peyton's successor behind Peyton only to watch Peyton run a system that the successor won't be able to run. Might as well pick him up after or close to when Peyton retires. I'm sure there is a lot that Peyton can teach a young guy as far as mechanics in playing the position of QB and how to read defenses, but I don't think Peyton will need to bother teaching our offense to the replacement because I feel the offensive system will need to be changed anyway.

There's no way any team saturates their board with so many players of the same position.

The idea that we have to take "best CB available," or "best WR available" at a specific spot just isn't in line with the thinking of a lot of these front offices. They know they have needs, and they try to maximize their current position on the board to cross talent and need. Sometimes they trade down or up if they REALLY want a particular player, but most of the time are happy in taking the best player available.

I doubt the Colts (or anyone, outside of Miami), has a position-specific draft layout like we're suggesting here.

253 Derek Moye WR 29 Penn State rSr 6-4 210 4.54 I went down the list to find Moye because I watched the Penn State game and this guy is good. He's a big, physical guy with great hands.

I'm not saying that you think these 40 times are accurate but some of these are kinda funny. Watching Rueben Randle yesterday, he's a lot faster then 4.57. He was flying down the side line on those two TD grabs.

Nah I agree with you...the 40 times may be how the players were officially timed but that's not always indicative of how fast they play the game. Some players definitely play much faster than they time and Reuben Randle is definitely one of them. He's on my mock draft for 2012 and if he does declare for the draft I'd love to see us pick him up. :)
