Colts sign Jon Bostic

Ballard has already gone on record saying that it doesn't matter where you come from or where you were drafted (or not drafted), all that matters is what you do on the field. Unless Morrison is lights out amazing come training camp, I don't see him starting over Jackson.

 

The problem is...     as best as I can tell....     Morrison is the MIKE and Edwin Jackson is the WILL.

 

So,  assuming that's true,   I don't see them as competing with each other....     I think Bostic was brought in to compete with Morrison while Jackson competes with Spence.

I'll have to go watch the tape now.

Let me know what you see. I have only seen the Senior Bowl. I remember him having a nice game vs OSU too. 

 

For a guy who wasn't athletic he had a great combine. He was top's in bench press 27x. The surprising times 1st short shuttle 4.13 3rd 60 yard shuttle 11.58 7th vertical 34.5 9th 3 cone and 12th broad jump. His 40 time was not so impressive 4.75. 

 

Blair Brown was just ahead of Davis on the SPRAQ at #6. Duke Riley was 14th. A couple of guys who didn't fair so well McMillan 34 and Anzalone 52. I've never been excited about Anzalone. He'd be a steal if he was able to do something he's never done. I do like Riley. SPARQ isn't the end all but here it is.

Neither should start and probably wont start. Morrison has more upside though. Jackson is severely overrated by this board.

Morrison has more upside?  Yeah, he just needs to learn how to channel all that athleticism.

First thing I noticed on tape was that he's an amazing blitzer. He did it a lot in college and you can see why. 2nd I noticed that his closing speed is really good. The conclusion I got was that in a straight line, he's fast as all hell. It's moving laterally that he struggles. Didn't see much in coverage but not many LBs are asked to cover in college. But if he can translate his good instincts in the run game to the pass then he can overcome his athletic limitations. He's likely a 2 down LB early on but I see the potential.

I think we will still draft an ILB

 

Yes, but maybe not round 1, depending on who is still there...

I think we can take ILB out of the 1st round equation now. EDGE, CB or RB it is

 

True, I see Barnett taken if he is there, or maybe Lamp to move in at guard....  CB in round 2...   ILB will get a draft pick at some point though.

Lokking at his acquisitions thus far, It's apparent to me Ballard isn't going to put up with being a soft team against the run and listen to the proverbial media heads with their  "punch the Colts in the mouth" rhetoric...

 

But you need pass rush and CB's to defend against 11 personnel with the necessary Nickel Sub package (around 60 to 65% of snaps these days at times!) Thus my feelings at this point above.

That shuttle times say he should move better laterally. I still want to watch him but I like the kid if we don't get a MLB the first 2 days.

Seems Mr.Ballard is on a mission to adding extreme competition at areas of need i like it! Just wish more competition was at CB but maybe he has players he likes in upcoming draft.. *cough cough* GAREON CONLEY!!!! sorry i cough loud

 

I think they may draft two CBs.

Bostic made some great plays on his highlight reel on the Colts app. Obviously it is a highlight reel, but maybe with a better offense and competition for a chance to start, maybe we'll get even more out of him. 

Nicely put

I have been told I am a bit of a pessimist but I have been reading a fair amount of positive reviews across the internet about the left side of our OL so now what the hey ....I believe in Castonzo....Mewhort.....Kelly. Ballard is probably got OL on his list of possible first picks but when choice time arrives might be best player on board at that time is what he ends up doing.....GO COLTS !

    • As long as Clark or Green are in the game, you're gonna have trouble at Tackle.
    • Great find.  Been listening at work. Thanks!
    • Except to end the half. Lol   They are hanging in though.     Ive been going back and forth with myself, whether it would be better for us for the Browns and Ravens end up 11-5, that way our tie breakers with Raiders and Miami for last spot(if we dont come back and get division/ still more than a possibility) if we finish 10-6, would be down to our h2h with Raiders and conference with Dolphins. Although I firmly believe Dolphins won 9 games max and more likely 8, imo.
    • Good post.    And the thing blew up because of a neck surgery, BP failing to get a backup QB, and us getting the first pick in the draft the year the best prospect since John Elway declares for the draft.    As Irsay said when he was crying at that press conference with PM at his side, the two talked many ways to figure a way to work it, but "circumstances" was the 800 pound gorilla in the room.   New franchise QB, new legacy with new management.  Maybe Irsay should have simply kept Polians and Caldwell to work with Luck.  Would it have been worse than Grigs and Pagano?
    • For whatever it’s worth....   on his weekly day after interview this week, Reich admits Clark struggled in the first two series.   But he said the rest of the game he thought Clark was decent.  Not great, not terrible.   And certainly not as bad as many here are screaming about.    I have no idea what the staff will do this week, or in the off-season.   I’m just sharing what Frank said for the record.
