You're 100% right on that one.
He's going to be a combine freak as well. Former track star. Pride said he wants to run in the 4.2 range (I'm guessing it'll be in the 4.3 range).
Pride had to play out of position as the boundary corner this year. His most natural position is the field (he was dominant as a field in '18).

Ok, so here we go. The Colts defense has drastically improved over the past 3 seasons under Ballard. There is no denying that. It went from worst in the league to a top 10 defense, and has its young cornerstone leader in Darius Leonard.
You cannot expect the offense to be the same.
With Luck’s retirement, the offensive rebuild is all the way back to square one. Sure, some players will translate over to the new QB, but unless we find Luck 2.0, this scheme won’t be fit for our next signal caller. Thus, I am judging the defense next year for sure, but on offense I will give them another season of work. Losing a top 3 QB won’t go over lightly, so we must be patient and give it a couple years. We’ve been spoiled with Luck right after Manning, it’s time to wake up and realize that the offense needs a reboot and it won’t be all fixed next season. Put your faith in the franchise and Ballard and Reich will get things done!
