Trent Cole and Erik Walden should help our defense hold up against the run. Their both good at setting the edge. I believe Langford is an upgrade over Redding.

 

Trent was brought in for his ability to rush the QB not set the edge, that's what Walden and Werner is here for even tho Trent is good at both.

Gore/Ballard? or Gore/Herron?

It is Gore Boom Tipton Ballard JR Varga as it sits right now. I am hoping that JR and Varga get a lot of playing time vs. the Eagles. We shall see. I don't think Gore will see much time and I think Ballard is still nursing the hamstring.

 

It looks like Griff is on the outside looking in 7th according to this depth chart.

Surprising that Tipton is 3rd string

Why is it unofficial if the Colts released it?  I'd text him if I weren't at work.

Honestly, nothing too surprising from the depth charts, based on what we’ve seen in Anderson. Boom Herron is your “starting" kick returner.

That was the only one that surprised me.  Why in the world is BOOM the KR?  It should either be Dorsett or Carter.  Heck I'd rather hold 6 WR's and have Whalen do it over Boom.  He even has problems holding on to the football.  Oh well, I'm sure it wont last long.

Why? He was 3rd string at the end of last year. It's pretty standard to retain your spot for at least the first depth chart.

I'm not too surprised with Zurlon being 3rd, however *IF* Vick stays healthy he should be 3rd.  Also, I had high hopes for JR, but I'm not hearing anything good from him, so I believe he will be a developmental player over the next few seasons.

Of course but, like I said, it's pretty standard practice for a first "unofficial" depth chart.

When I was there on the 7th he muffed a kickoff so bad that had the whistle not been blown I'm sure it would have been recovered by the kicking team at the 3 yard line.  It was pretty terrible, never seen a guy screw up a kickoff that bad.

I can't see the tweet or the chart at work but here's a link that has the info:

Something that is contrary to what I've been reading is D'Joun ahead of Brown.

An early 3rd round pick over a journeyman fringe player for the first depth chart isn't really surprising, even if the journeyman has out played him so far. This depth chart really doesn't mean much, hence the "unofficial".

Yeah, I don't want to take it too literal.  But I wonder if the players who are fighting for roster spots look at it that way? 

 

Barring injury, we know three of the final CBs.  Unless D'Joun is a total bust in preseason games (maybe even if he is) he's making the team.  So it probably leaves one spot. 

 

That being said, if I were Brown and was outplaying guys in practice, I'd be a little ticked though.

Means next to nothing. Would not be shocked at all if Whalen makes it ahead brown solely based on his ST ability which does not show on this depth chart.

 

True.  If Whalen or Brown are ever a starter it means we have problems.  Brown is probably a better WR, but he'll hardly see the field.  Griff knows the playbook, has history with 12 and can play STs.

Like you said, D'joun Smith is almost guaranteed a spot on the final roster, whereas, as well as Brown has apparently looked so far, he still is far from guaranteed a spot. That reinforces why Smith is ahead of Brown for now.

Jalil Brown might be * off but he needs to understand that he needs to show a lot more to make this team than a player like D'joun Smith who the Colts are more heavily invested in. Nature of the beast.

I know it doesn't mean much, but it is something considering Whalen IS the guy with the experience on this team, ST ability, and who is supposedly having a fantastic camp. Just surprised me a little bit is all, I'm not putting too much stock in any of this lol

    • Bobby O needs to step up his game this coming season. I don't think Walker is coming back ( he'd be a better fit in a 3-4 IMO), and the Colts need better play if he is going to keep that starting role. He consistently seemed to be a step slow in coverage, and that is supposed to be his strong suit. Hopefully, it was a sophomore slump, but if it continues into year 3, Oke will be a backup very quickly. 
    • Stitches....    to your very good point about how to know which performances are real-ish and which are not?   I read a good story earlier this month, I think from Sports Illustrated, basically saying the scouting community is freaking out trying to figure out that exact question.    The loss of the combine eliminates the apples to apples comparison that everyone had.   Plus the loss of face to face meetings...   plus the same set of doctors examining all the players.   All gone.  Medical exams will be done by local doctors.   Personnel people don’t know what to do?   Or didn’t as of early Feb.   I think this increases the chances of scouting error for all teams.   Perhaps dramatically?   I think we could see mire Day 1 and Day 2 misses than ever before.   But that’s just my guess...
    • My first thought is LT or DE, but would say that at least so far the early draft of Rock at CB hasnt gone well   We still dont have an answer long term at CB, (Maybe Tell steps up into the role)   I do believe that our CBs will look better if we have a little better rush on the edges......   With at least one glaring hole on the OL and one glaring hole on the DL, it will be interesting to see how CB addresses this draft   Does he stay with his mantra of "lines first" or does he get more of a pure BPA, which could include WRs, TEs, S, and CBs that  would surprise many (or some) fans        
    • actually i think we should move on from Wilkins and i know Ballard could fine a better upgrade for him
