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"..

    • What ever happened to Brad Wells. He was an interesting fella.
    • I don't know if Pittman is going to get big contract. He has only played one year. Taylor  would b interesting. He could put up monster numbers in the next three years behind this line and if Wentz pans out. U look at every team that signs their rb to a 2nd contract. The exception maybe Henry but he is only a year into his deal.  I am not sure if Ballard believes in giving rbs big contracts or letting them walk.
    • Really hope both Campbell and Mack stay healthy. Both will be key pieces on offense.
    • I wanted to see more out of Braden Smith in 2020, and I think he met my high expectations. He's better than 'just good,' IMO. Ryan Kelly is definitely a top five center. I think maybe you're being a little withholding on those two guys.   Glowinski is 'just good,' and definitely replaceable.    Now if you want to talk about how easy/difficult it would be to replace guys like Kelly or Smith without experiencing a significant drop off in overall quality of line play, that's a fair conversation to have.   But before you go down that path you have to acknowledge that it's not easy to build a good OL. The Colts struggled for a decade, and it was only when they dedicated major resources over a four year period to fixing it -- big contract for AC, first rounders at LG and C, second rounder at RT, and a plug-in + second contract at RG -- that the OL became a strength for this team. I believe it's possible to replace one or two guys with serviceable players, and still get an acceptable level of play from the line overall, but that doesn't mean I'm eager to get rid of good players on the strongest unit on the roster.
