Colts Claimed Robert "snacks" Myers.

Think he is a OG...

 

 

Oline

 

 

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"..

    • Even if you take a guy where the talking heads predict (and that's debatable), does that totally absolve a GM? Folks always give Ballard credit for scouting, etc. and finding the guys (and being better better than the talking heads). This time he took a guy (Wilson) that was predicted to go in 60s-90s at 46, and it was a miss. He was graded 6.2 by NFL.com, and the 6.2s ended at 95. So it's even debatable if 40s wasn't a reach. Anywho, if you're going to give credit for finds, you also have to take credit away for misses. And Wilson was an obvious miss.   Rhodes, Moore, and Carrie were all great in FA. Rhodes and Carrie had track records to judge in the pros though at least. Moore was a slam dunk.   Tell hasn't done anything yet. Harriston isn't on the roster. I don't know who Taylor is.    
    • Huh?   First, two picks is too small a sample size.   Not when the jury is still out in Rock.   Talk to me in a year.    There was nothing wrong with taking Wilson where we did.  It was exactly where he was supposed to be drafted.  It just didn’t work out.    Also, if we’re going outside two draft picks, since you used the word “recruiting”...   I’d simply say Kenny Moore, Xavier Rhodes, to go with Carrie.    Then I’d add the later round draft picks... Tell, Taylor and Hairston.     I don’t think CB has anything to apologize for just yet. 
    • OK, @PRnum1 gets LAC. @SaturdayAllDay gets NO @danlhart87 get KC   @RNGDShobby is up @MPStack on deck @JediXMan in the ho @stitches get your bat tarred.    1 @WarGhost21 Colts 2 @chad72 - jags 3 @Archer jets 4 @Nickster  - Patriots 5 @EastStreet - Dolphins 6 @JoeThornburg -  Pitt 7 @BProland85 - 49ers 8 @Defjamz26 - Eagles 9 @Qwiz - Houston  10 @jvan1973 - Falcons 11 @PRnum1 - Chargers 12 @SaturdayAllDay - Saints 13 @danlhart87 - Chiefs  --------------------------------- 14 @RNGDShobby 15 @MPStack 16 @JediXMan 17 @stitches 18 @ColtsGermany 19 @luv_pony_express 20 @diogoSales 21. @Coltsman1788
    • I wouldn't say CB has gone as poor as DE drafting, but CB hasn't gone well. Rock was his first pick in 19 (gotta hit your first pick), and Wilson was early capital (early 2nd IIRC) in 2017. The fact Wilson is no longer on the roster likely amplifies the feeling for many.   Overall, DB recruiting has not been a strength (especially early), and to say we have some questionable scheme picks would be an understatement.
