Colts Claimed Robert "snacks" Myers.

Think he is a OG...

Isn't he a OL

Brain freeze. Robert Myers, claimed from Ravens, is OG. Another position of need. #Colts

My bad. George Bremer tweeted out "Solid piece on DL" and I assumed his was a DL-man. My bad.

I like their player summary:

 

Bottom Line

Myers is already above average from a technical standpoint and is a quick processor when the game speeds up. Myers is a guard prospect who can pull and play in a power scheme. He has the pass protection traits of an NFL starter. The ceiling is higher for Myers than many guard prospects in this draft, and with more coaching and work in the weight room, he should be an NFL starter.

Three good write-ups:

 

Ravens rookie guard Robert 'Snacks' - Baltimore Sun

 

Baltimore Ravens add future starter in rookie Robert Myers

 

Robert Myers: 2015 Ravens Rookie Predictions - Ebony Bird

 

...Nicknamed “Quadzilla” for his insanely huge, tree trunk like legs, Myers might just be the next mid-to-late round offensive lineman who turns out to be a gem for Ozzie and company.  A 35 game starter in college, Myers is a mammoth man with long arms and the power to win inside.  He doesn’t have special movement skills, but figures to fit in just fine.

Sounds good but I have to ask one question:  Why was he released?

 

 

...The Ravens were likely hoping they could sneak their fifth-round pick out of Tennessee State through to the practice squad, but the Colts had other ideas. Myers is a powerful guard with long arms but limited movement skills. There is not much standing between him and snaps in Indianapolis.

You would think with such a glowing write up they would say he should be a 5th-7th rounder. Instead they say he's a "priority free agent"..

    • I've had a chance to talk Jim Irsay and he is a great guy who just wants to win in the worst way. 
    • I don't give grades yet ask me in two years and then I'll give a grade.  Ask me on May, 6th 2023
    • How about none of the options and we roll with Tevi this year.  The Colts have three big name players (Leonard, Smith, and Nelson) that will need to be resigned which doesn't leave us much cap space available next year so don't expect much movement again in free agency in 2022.   After locking down the big three TE MAC and RB Hines are top priorities imo.    Next off-season I would look at the Vikings RT Brian O'Neill and offer him something very similar to what Braden Smith should get 4yr/60m w/30m guaranteed.  O'Neill I expect to get an offer for 4yr/64m (16m APY) with 30m guaranteed.  O'Neill was a very good LT coming out of Pittsburgh and has proven himself in the NFL at RT.  The Vikings had one of the worst OL last season and took Darrisaw as LT in the draft but also appear to be in potential cap troubles next off-season.  
    • Here may be the future issue complicating signing additional Free Agents to sem-big contracts is that we still have to sign Leonard, Smith, and Nelson to big contracts and will be in similar off-season situation again with available cap space.  Have to figure the Colts will want to resign MAC, Muhammad, Mack if he stay healthy and Hines.  Glowinski might be a wild card to resign at RG and so far haven't really found a solid RG replacement for next year if we do let him walk.    The Colts would be wise to keep what we have now for defensive lineman and save the cap space with consideration of signing the Vikings RT Brian O'Neill next year.  According to early estimates the Vikings are going to be hurting for cap space next off-season and O'Neill might price himself out of Minnesota.  Now I was very high on O'Neill coming out of Pittsburgh college and regarded him as one of the better left tackles available at the time.  Like Smith he has proved himself at RT.  The Colts could acquire O'Neill with a few options of either letting Glowinski go and moving Smith back to his original college position of RG and letting O'Neill play RT.  The other option is keeping Glowinski at RG and Smith at RT while moving O'Neill to LT but estimates leaves us around $7 million in cap space without signing other big future FA names of Hilton, Rhodes, and Pascal.  Any ways have a feeling next year's FA is going to look a lot like this year with little additions due to limited cap space.
