Udfa get get to choose where they go. They can look at your roster and say I don't think I can make it or they may want to go to a regional team (maybe NE) to be closer to home or closer to his family home wherever that is. Now he is locked in and ours.

I'm warming up to this pick quickly after seeing some clips of this kid.  I jumped the gun because I didn't know who the heck he was.  lol

Irsay was not dishing out $20 mil. to his QB without a plan :)

WOW! Austin Blythe!

This means Holmes and Harrison are both gone. They'll be this year's Chapman and Hughes.

Ohh I don't either...all I know is we wanted him in our camp for sure and that's fine with me...we needed lbs.

Overall I like our draft picks; however I can't help but feel we could have did much better. Seems very bland Whig describes the Colts under Grigson.

No, Blythe has experience at both guard positions, so essentially he will be center back up and guard back up. 

 

We have OT back up with Kaeg and Good, this was the guard/center back up plan.

Yessir. I'm not mad at him. I'm excited to see what we can do with the CFA's

?????  just at a loss.  How many rookie OL can you have, greater needs elsewhere for sure. That's rather disappointing

Pretty much. It's for their benefit though. We've seen all we need to see of those two. Time to move on

Bunch of people wanted this guy as our center....love those big ten interior lineman. He may be more pro ready while our other two might need a year.

Haeg will play before Clark, imo

We drafted Olineman for the new ZBS scheme.  You could argue that Blythe, Haeg, and Clark are for the right side of the line.  Blythe will backup Kelly.

 

Doesn't bode well for KH, JH, and Thornton.

At this point, I hope for David Perkins, OLB, Victor Ochi, OLB, Eric Striker OLB, and Jeremy Cash SS to fall and see the amount of opportunity we have on Defense for them to get playing time if they prove themselves..... undrafted OLB's especially should be falling over themselves to come to Indy

Gimme Cash for safety depth. Could backup Geathers and play ST's.

 

Maybe we can get Tyler Marz for more depth

Someone should start a UDFA thread with a link to a colts only tracker. I looked and didn't see one. Maybe someone already has a link?

I would 't bet a penny that Blythe becomes the back-up ahead of Holmes.

 

I'm not saying it won't happen,  just that I wouldn't predict it at this point.

It's cool. I'm saying that because I see history repeating itself. Last year we weren't getting anything out of Chapman and Hughes and then we drafted Anderson and Perry and the staff said they were better and released them.

 

I see the same pattern with our centers. Kelly is an automatic starter and Blythe is a better scheme fit. I can see Holmes and Harrison playing in the 4th quarter of the last preseason game and then being cut. Holmes also has injury concerns.

Fair point.    At the press conference,   Grigson and Pagano spoke very, VERY highly of Blythe.    Made him sound like much more of a prospect than the normal 7th round kid.       Holmes and Harrison might lose a lot of sleep over the next few months,  0R,  they'll get motivated to play the best football of their lives!!

Tell me about him. I'm intrigued...

I will say this. Bates has all the same production as Camalei Correa without us having used a second or third round pick. He actually moves better than Correa, better 3 cone times, same 40 time, better explosion. We have a coach on our coaching staff who used to be at Maine before coming to the Colts. I studied up on him a little bit before the draft started.

Im interested enough to watch film on him. Thanks!

 

PS sorry for the confusion yesterday. Wasnt trying to condescend at all.

    • I thought he was talking about Johnathan Joseph
    • Darius Leonard was key last year in stopping Deshaun Watson. Last year we had him spy Watson for most of the game. We need him to do that again
    • I think he's better suited for UT than NT. Seems he's playing out of position for his skillset.
    • OK, you're the QB.  You have moved off Pascal, pulled it back from T.Y. , ignored the checkdown to Mack.  You're in a clean pocket and this is what you see as you continue to go through the progressions-   https://imgur.com/tqrxRkp   Where are you going with the ball?      The play broke down, it was defended. Like most QB's, time to make a play with his feet.  I feel he wanted to sprint to the sideline and buy time for a receiver to get open. But Glowinski was in his way making him take a path closer to Chris Jones (who quickly disengaged from Kelly to pursue).     Castonzo  lost his man shortly after JB7 tucked and started to bail.  I don't think it would be long enough for these receivers to break away from their defenders- T.Y., Cain, or especially Ebron, on his butt in the end zone.  Kelly wasn't in great position on Jones, as witnessed how fast he got to JB once he broke out.     Strip sack from the blind side would have been bad.     If I was talented enough to be in his shoes, I would have taken the safety valve to Mack and let him try to make a play.  But I feel JB7 is every bit as talented as Big Ben to extend a play moving out of the pocket when necessary. So we don't see it the same.  The WR are blanketed. I'm not sitting there forever in that case hoping a defender eventually falls down, instead of one of your targets.   I've made my case.  (I think the check down to Mack). I'm moving on.
    • JB has made a few mistakes and the colts are doing the right thing letting the run game been the focal point of this offense this season. The guy is working on his craft and has already improved.
