Colts interested in Austin Seferian-Jenkins


Recommended Posts

Would be more interested in a one-year deal for Eifert. But the more I read about this rookie TE class, I wouldn't mind grabbing one of those to develop. Let other teams roll the dice on ASJ, Eifert, Graham and especially Trey Burton.

Colts have a lot of other needs though. Guys like Gesicki or Goedert are talented but would be gone by the time Colts could draft them after covering other needs.

The Tight End position isn’t a mandatory need for this team right now. We will see come Draft time if Ballard wants to spend a later pick on a Tight End or not. 

Maybe not a high priority, but TE is definitely a need.  it's a position that is just as thin as WR at the moment

For it to make sense, the Colts would need to trade back and accrue more picks. But I wouldn't put it past Ballard.

 

It really depends on Swoope. He mysteriously missed an entire season...so he has to be a question mark at this point. I was really looking forward to seeing what he could...but if he can't come back, I think TE becomes somewhat of a prioirty.

 

I just can't imagine the Colts intentionally giving big-time snaps to guys like Brandon Williams and Darrell Daniels again. When Reich was the OC in SD, he had Gates and Ladarius Green. When he was the OC in PHI, he had Ertz, Burton and Celek. I think he and Ballard are going to want more talent at the position.

Weapons for a offensive team, especially when deprived of them, is needed and not a luxury.

ASJ has extreme upside. If he can KEEP his alcoholism behind him he can be a Top Tier TE in this league. 

I would love for the Colts to be able to sign him. He would instantly be our #1 TE. And look forward seeing 2 TE sets with him and Doyle. Lots of flexibility in lining up dual TE's that can both catch.

I appreciate that the "ASJ Sucks!" crowd knows that he was a big bust his first three years in Tampa.

 

I'm just not sure the crowd knows that ASJ had a very good 2017 season for the Jets.  He caught 50 passes from Josh McNown.

 

ASJ went away to alcohol rehab and completed it and stayed sober.  He admits he's an alcoholic.   In his first three years in the NFL he caught 55 passes.   Last year -- 50.

 

No guarantee he won't relapse..  but he might be worth an investment.   He has talent.   It'd be nice to buy a good player at a discount.

I seem to be in the minority in that I quite like our TE group.

 

Doyle had a couple of blips last year but still looked good and that was without the chemistry he and Luck have and with the first year of pressure as TE1.

 

Swoope is a concern based on the injuries last year but Ballard has mentioned he rates him highly and so, if we can get him healthy, solid TE2.

 

The X-factor in this is Ross Travis. Obviously very little data on him last year but I remember one game where he caught two passes one after another and looked really big and strong.

 

With so many other needs, I like this group and wouldn't mind seeing how they do for 2018 before looking elsewhere.

He wouldn't "instantly be our #1 TE." Doyle is still better. Maybe eventually he can surpass Doyle but definitely not instantly. It takes a while to master a playbook and develop chemistry with your QB.

They obviously know more about Swoope's health than any of us. But as far as we know, he is a question mark at this piont...after missing an entire season. I was very high on him, so I hope he is back, but having some insurance would be nice.

 

I don't think Ballard wants find himself in a situation where he the Colts are giving big time snaps to guys like Williams and Daniels last season. At least that is my hope. What that looks like though I don't know.

They obviously turned of the cap on settings. This is hilarious. If you ask Ballard, their locker room is going to toxic. It’ll be full of jealous players who were drafted by Jax.

    • That's weird comment...   Anyway, given all are healthy the 5th or 6th guy better be good on STs because he's not going to get a lot of reps in a game.  Heck Patmon hardly put on his uniform last year.  He looks the part but so do a lot of others that have come and gone.
    • I before E except after C 
    • Alright, here it goes. These trades will be close enough but not perfect, let me preface them.     Trade 1: Colts trade No.21 to Ravens for No.27 and No.104 (their 3rd round compensatory pick) and No.171 (their 5th round pick) Trade 2: Colts then trade No.27 to Falcons (they move back into Round 1) for pick No.35, their 4th rounder (pick No.108) and their 5th rounder (pick No.148)   Colts 1st pick: Round 2 Pick No.35 - Payton Turner, DE, Houston 6'5", 270 lbs - strong, good natural bend and agility for his size, fits our D to a tee. Some might say this might be a reach but they said that about Leonard too, and a very good system fit is worth half a round or round early, IMO   Colts 2nd pick: Round 2 Pick No.54 - Spencer Brown, OT, Northern Iowa, 6'8", 311 lbs (lots of Jared Veldheer comparisons, very good athlete much like Braden Smith) - very quick on his feet, should be able to definitely transition to LT, I think he is a better prospect and athlete than Dillon Radunz at this stage of the draft, with longer arms and larger hands, IMO.   Colts 3rd pick: Round 3 Pick No.104 - Jabril Cox, LB, LSU, 6'3", 232 lbs - his athleticism will improve our LB corps and he has good arm length as well that Ballard covets, very good instincts and explosive with good cover talent   Colts 4th pick: Round 4 Pick No.108 -  Tamorrion Terry, WR, Florida State, 6'3", 207 lbs - has good speed, route running needs work which is why he will be available here, can be used like Alshon Jeffery for the big X WR/big body for slants for Reich's system while also sneaking past DBs for the occasional surprise home run hit   Colts 5th pick: Round 4 Pick No.127 - Hunter Long, TE, Boston College, 6'5", 254 lbs - body type is very close to Dallas Goedert and he will be our Burton replacement, receiving TE that is a mismatch for safeties and LBs   Colts 6th pick: Round 5 Pick No.148 - Benjamin St. Juste, CB, Minnesota, 6'0", 202 lbs - I am on the group consensus that Ballard will be drafting only for depth at cornerback unless some great value screams at him; and this is the kind of developmental prospect that fits what they like in CBs that is long that I expect the Colts to draft and develop.   Colts 7th pick: Round 5 Pick No.165 - Jonathan Marshall, DT, Arkansas, 6'3", 310 lbs - Very quick and disruptive athletic DT that is suited to play 3-technique on the inside.   Colts 8th pick: Round 5 Pick No.171 - Darrick Forrest, S, Cincinnati, 6'0", 206 lbs - excellent special teamer, definitely a box safety and has played a lot of big nickel for Cincinnati, compares to George Odum     Colts 9th pick: Round 6 Pick No.206 - Jamie Newman, QB, Wake Forest, 6'3", 234 lbs - might be a later round Jacoby Brissett all over but should help with occasional usage of RPOs and QB sneaks by the goal line   Colts 10th pick: Round 7 Pick No.248 - Chauncey Golston, DE, Iowa, 6'5", 269 lbs - long armed developmental prospect who actually played well lining up inside at Senior Bowl, might work good in certain sub packages     Alright now, crucify me.
