Dt Josh Chapman - Now A Late Round Pick?


Recommended Posts

Alabama's nose tackle Josh Chapman just underwent surgery after playing seven games on a torn ACL. :eyebrow:

He probably won't be able to work out prior to the NFL Draft, and I can't see any other result from this, than his draft stocking dropping.

Read somewhere that he could even risk starting the 2012 season on the PUP list.

If so, and he falls to the 4th round or beyond, the Colts should definitely draft him with say the 5th round pick.

Even if the Colts took someone in the first, second, or even third round, if this guy falls to the fourth round or later, I would 100% take him. You cannot have enough quality interior defensive linemen, and the Colts lack should be proof of this.

Its possible that he might be there.If so,then he's a must draft.Maybe even reach for him with the third RDP.

If he is a stud DT then a 3rd round pick would be well spent, but if he is another Nevis, then get him in the 5th-6th round

He was projected as a late second but deffinately a third round pick. He isn't flashy, but he does all the right things on the inside, I have the Colts taking him on my mock, again you can't have enough quality interior defensive linemen. You build in the trenches, from the inside out.

Nevis is a stud. You think he was only worth a 6th? your crazy, he got injured this year but when he was healthy he was flyin around, the defense played the best it did all year when he was in the lineup. Personally i cant wait till next year, hes gunna be great.

In When. He underachieved in college and he is underachieving with us. He gets blocked by 1 O-lineman. Most of his tackles this year was on the Colts side of the line and not in the back field. If Nevis is as good as some of you think, then he would have went higher in the draft. IMO we could have got him in the 4th-5th round.

Read on NFL.com that Bucky Brooks likes Chapman and that he is a stud, that he had been injuried this last year.

Fully agree. He isn't first round considered, because again he isn't flashy, but he will be gone in the second or third for sure! If me makes it to the third round, I would 100% pull the trigger on him!

Underachieved in college? Looking at his numbers i guess so did Nick Fairley and Suh because Nevis is right there with them.

Lol, this is the first post I have ever seen alluding to Nevis not being worth his draft slot. Dude was injured most of the season. When he got play, he played well.

No way he falls dude played the last 8 games of the season with a torn ACL and was still the best DT in the country against the run scouts i know are all ravening about him he could fall but not much

Health concerns will drop him down some and probably out of the first round but I don't know if he'll fall to the later rounds of the draft.

He was projected as a second/third round guy before the surgery. I can see him realistically being a third/fourth round guy. Not cause of skill, just the surgery. I still say take him 100% in the fourth if he falls.

    • I think Watson will get some kind of suspension. Zeke got 6 games and was never charged for a criminal crime and that was with 1 girl. I still bet it will be 8 games at worse. I originally predicted 8 games once it came out that no criminal charges would be filed. It could still even be a year. It will be interesting to see how this ends.
    • Don't forget this Sunday's game on Fox 59 at 7:30 pm I think!
    • Im sorry I’m responding a little late….   But I took the time to re-view the 25 minute Luck press conference, and the 25 minute conference from Irsay, Ballard and Reich.    Luck says his final decision was made roughly 10-14 days before the announcement, and the execs say they knew 7-10 days ahead and the week leading up to the game was filled with almost daily conversations.  I don’t know where you got that the front office found out “that day.”    I’ve never seen that claim made by anyone else here, and there’s been plenty of mis-information put out there about Luck.    Also….  Luck didn’t participate in any team activities the entire off-season.   Zero in the Spring.   Zero in training camp.  At the presser Ballard talked about the strange off-season saying Luck ended the 2018 season feeling pretty good, then something happened at the Pro Bowl that no one could pin down.  Ankle sprain?   High ankle sprain? Shin?    No one knew.   So the team knew something was up.     Ultimately, Luck did a bad job at his press conference explaining things, and the media did a poor job of getting enough details to write a good story so people could understand.    But I’d add, that no one in the Colts seems angry with Luck.   Not Irsay, or Ballard, or Reich, or players.   No one.    Yet people here think Luck screwed the team.   A guy driven to do the right thing all his life, and yet fans here are convinced he did the wrong thing.   I confess that disappoints me.   It’s as if people never learned anything about Andrew Luck beyond his wins and losses.  I find that sad….  
    • Like most surface fans? Not sure what kind of shot ur trying to take here but okay. As for the points, there aren't really any intelligble ones to respond to. In both instances Wentz gives the ball to the other team at the very end of the game. In both TEN matchups. Also, in those specific plays there were checkdowns available.    Reich kind of took blame for one, saying he shouldn't of called a TE screen so close to the end zone. But I guess i'm just a surface fan, even though I consistently talk on a colts fan forum, frequent multiple other sites where many people post a plethora of uncensored opinions about the colts, attend games frequently, and I understand football more than most casual people.    I don't sit on the board and pretend to speak some scheme specific terminology, but I know what football looks like. And with that being said, it is easy for anyone to see that Wentz consistently put our defense in bad positions, and tried to play hero ball despite not being very good at it.  As for how that applies to this specific thread; I think having a more sensible QB on the roster will make our Oline look a lot better.    Also, as i've stated multiple times, I do recognize our offensive line had issues. However, that doesn't takeaway the reality of 2sprainz and the type of game he wanted to play, even at the cost of his own team.
