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

    • I've talked to people back in North Dakota who knew Wentz when he was at ND State. They had nothing but high praise for his character and the quality of person he was at that time. They thought he was in a toxic situation in Philly, for what that's worth.  All that said, this could not have been a one sided affair. Wentz and Pederson's relationship went off the rails, for whatever reason, and it got worse, not better, from everything I've read. I'm sure they both bear some responsibility, though you would hope your head coach had the ability to find a path to make things work. He obviously didn't, which is one reason he's unemployed right now. 
    • No, I don't think Bill has anything left to prove. Sure, this year was disappointing for NE, but despite the situation the team was always competitive. He's helped bring 7 rings to that community. 
    • @NewColtsFan and @MikeCurtis    I say this because Ballard says this.     He says they set their board and draft from it.    Their BPA will most often differ from probably everyone else's BPA. He sets his board with his eye on Special Payers and also  BPA at core positions  And of course they also have a variable in the equation for need.  So if 2 player are rated very close they would take the need player.  But otherwise its BPA on the Colts board.   For instance.  Many people didn't think we should have drafted Q.   While Oline was a need there were a lot of people that thought it was a reach but he was the BPA    Braydon Smith?     Leonard?    Not many saw this one coming.  I didn't even know who he was.     Last yr.   How many saw the Colts using their two 2nd round picks on WR and RB?      My guess is that even if they have a Safety ranked a lot higher than a OT they will take the safety.     So when I say something about these Mock drafts.  I do appreciate that people do them.  I read them all when I can.    Without knowing who was taken with the 1st 20 picks its hard to say who the Colts would/should take without seeing who is available.    https://www.stampedeblue.com/2017/4/5/15192468/chris-ballard-discusses-his-approach-to-the-nfl-draft-colts   Ballard's quote:     Stampede Blue analysis    More analysis from Stampede Blue   I won't be surprised with any pick that Ballard takes.  Even QB, if a top rated one on Ballards board falls to 21    He's pretty transparent in what he does IMO.    
    • Watson is digging in pretty far, the team would be smart to trade him.    They could get a bunch of picks and rebuild in a year or two, or waste a year with no QB, money or picks to speak of.  They would still have a disgruntled QB who is supposed to be the leader, demanding a trade next year.   I don't see how this is repairable, Houston needs to make the right move for once and trade him.
    • I think they need to bring Houston back. He still has gas in the tank and plays a rock solid DE. But they also need another pass rusher. Either draft him or spend the $ on the right FA. They absolutely have to get better at getting to the QB if the D is to take the next step.
