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'm getting more and more optimistic. In terms of career stats             Comp%   TD%  INT%    PR    ANY/A  Sack% Luck     60.8       5.2     2.5      89.5    6.42      5.0 Wentz  62.7       4.5     2.0      89.2    5.87      6.7   Similar in a lot of ways. I think Luck had better pass catchers most years. And even with Wentz's horrible 2020, their numbers aren't far off.
    • The bottom line is...   that from the outside looking in we have lots and lots of question marks.   Many of them in key places.     QB, LT,  DE are the biggest and most visible.    And until the questions about how good (or not) those players perform are answered we will remain a big question mark.   Right now, any objections to any media critics feels more like....  “Hey, they can’t talk about our players like that!  Only WE can talk about our players like that!”   
    • I don't care about the love affair with Mack, this is Taylors OFFENSE and NOBODY else!!!  Most don't get it that Jonathon Taylor has numbers that only compare to the #1 rb in the NFL and that is Derrick Henry!!! Taylor is a generational RB much like DH so please acknowledge this and let the MACK love affair go as any other generational back needs their touches!!!  JT has top 2 potential at his position and we can't let a lack of touches hinder his efficiency for Mack!  We must decide and its a no brainer!!!
    • Hi NFLfan!  Congrats on the walkoff win.  The cupboard is pretty bare in Baltimore these days. Bunch of new unrecognizable faces to me to be honest after they jettisoned the last group of good players out of Baltimore (Machado, Schoop, Britton, etc.). Noteworthy current players are John Means who pitched well again tonight following the no hitter; and Trey Mancini, RF most notable as a Cancer survivor. Not too many stars these days. Birds haven’t won a game since the no hit win. SMH 
    • I can't predict how Wentz will be because as of now I have no clue. I am hoping for at least above average play at worse. Good I will take all day with the way our run game should be. I thought Rivers was on the good level last season. Luck was very good and sometimes great. I hate to bring Luck up again but imagine if he was our QB right now? I think it would be a two team race between us and KC to decide who wins the AFC IMO. I am hoping Wentz delivers bigtime.
