Three times already!  Looks like they really this kid.  Looks like a serious candidate for 26 or 34 to me.  Big day coming up Sunday.  

 

 Or maybe in the 3rd.

 Doesn't Brown's 40 time make him undraftable? We will see.

 

He could be an UDFA too. Day 3 picks can teeter around the UDFA category pretty easily. Round 6 or Round 7 pick only ensures they are yours.

 It would be really good to draft a Doyle developmental clone.

That's what I thought also when watching him play.

I am not sure how well he projects outside but he is a beast underneath, it seems like.

 

Colts Nation and a whole lot of posters here will flip if he is drafted at No.26 or even No.34. :) 

I love, love, love brown. He wont last to 34 and so I 100% for sure would take him at 26. Dude played enough outside and produced enough outside for me. Reichs scheme isnt dependent on a typical X,Y receiver set. Lots of formations and lots of scheming to get guys open and brown will succeed in the role

I believe we may actually end up spending some decent coin on a WR this year.  Last year we barely talked to any of the major WR prospects.  This year we've been talking to all of them.

Over on NFL.com RB Devin Singletary mentioned a number of teams he has interviewed with.

 

Colts ARE one of them.

Safety Evan Worthington, who also participated in the Shrine Game and worked out at the combine, timed the 40 between 4.55 and 4.59 before his hamstring tightened up. That’s a major improvement from his official combine time of 4.63 seconds.

 

It should be noted Worthington completed everything at the combine and timed 7.07 in the three-cone.

 

He’s drawing a lot of interest from the Houston Texans, Tennessee Titans and Indianapolis Colts. The New Orleans Saints, Dallas Cowboys and Green Bay Packers also spent time with Worthington during pro day.

Does the Funchess signing change your view at all? Now I think they may move WR down as a need unless someone amazing slips.

If he drops weight, yes. Right now he’s just a 2 down player. If he gets to like 325-330, it’ll help him rush the passer.

Oklahoma State

The Cowboys had two non-combine players that drew a lot of attention -- linebacker Justin Phillips and receiver Tyron Johnson.

 

Phillips, who was given a seventh-round grade entering the season, has been struggling with a sprained knee since the end of the season and did not run the 40. He will workout for the Dallas Cowboys this coming Monday and met with the San Francisco 49ers and Indianapolis Colts during pro day.

 

Johnson, who I spoke highly of during our pre-combine podcast when we broke down the Big 12 film, ran 4.4 seconds in the 40 at 193 pounds. There were several stopwatches that had him under 4.4.

 

 

Colts met with Oklahoma state LB Justin Phillips. ^

Probably but we don't really have reporters in-the-know... I think most of what leaks will be leaked by agents and in the national media.

Colts showing interest in Toledo's WRs:

Pro Day Report – Toledo

 

 

A half-dozen receiver coaches from around the league were on hand for Toledo pro day to watch the trio of pass catchers workout, including two who participated in the combine.  Here’s the latest.

 

The Indianapolis Colts, Tampa Bay Bucs, New York Giants and Pittsburgh Steelers were four of the teams who had wide receiver coaches on hand for the workout.  The receiver workout was run by Nick Caserio of the New England Patriots.

 

Combine participants Cody Thompson and Diontae Johnson stood on their combine numbers but participated in position drills.  Each stood out catching the ball and Johnson also looked good fielding punts.

 

This was an important workout for Diontae Johnson as he struggled with consistency late last season.  His ability to effectively produce as a slot receiver has many people believing he will be drafted in the middle of day three.

 

Both receivers met extensively with the receiver coaches on hand and Johnson,

Colts showing interest in Charlotte OG Nate Davis:

http://draftanalyst.com/pro-day-report-charlotte

 

Quote

 

At least a half-dozen offensive line coaches were on hand to watch Nate Davis during his pro day, and all came away impressed.

 

Davis, who had three good days of practice at the Senior Bowl, met separately with offensive line coaches for the Detroit Lions, Indianapolis Colts, Buffalo Bills, New York Giantsand New Orleans Saints on Thursday night.

 

Davis stood on his combine numbers but looked good in drills. He was explosive and very powerful, something he displayed in Mobile. Scouts like his versatility, as though he lined up at tackle for UNC-Charlotte, he projects to guard at the next level and is even getting consideration at center. 

 

Word from pro day is Davis does not get past the 75th pick on Day 2.

 

Davis presently has nine top-30 visits, and among them are the Tennessee Titans.

 

The Indianapolis Colts are showing a lot of interest in Davis. 

 

Presently the Colts have three picks on the second day of the draft, including the 34th selection courtesy of last year’s trade with the New York Jets. Drafting Davis during the second day would solidify four-fifths of their offensive line for the next decade.

 

 

Also, seems like San Diego State OT Ryan Pope has had a private workout with the Colts:

http://draftanalyst.com/pro-day-report-–-san-diego-state

Quote

 

Offensive tackle Ryan Pope significantly improved his 40 time from the combine, clocking as fast as 5.07 seconds.  He also touched 28.5 inches in the vertical jump. 

 

Multiple sources tell me Pope looked solid in position drills. 

 

Pope met with the New Orleans Saints on Thursday night, Washington Redskins on Friday and worked out for the Indianapolis Colts today.

Have we had any visits where Chris Ballard has attended himself?

I think we'd almost surely have to trade up to get Burns. Which, I know I'm in the minority but I'm not as high on him as others are, at least in terms of trading up. There's aways the chance he falls but that's hard to see...if he did though, I'd be all over it.

Also, random note...Baldinger speculated, or more just gave his opinion, that Colts/Eagles could have their eye on the same player and that we could try to jump them. Didn't say the player but everybody seemed to think he was speculating about Wilkins/Ferrell.

Would love to have Ferrell and Houston at the same time along with everyone else we have.

So what are you guys thinking the chances of trading up for “our guy” is? NYJ has come out & said they’re willing to trade. I could see Ballard considering it. Do you guys think giving up or first second would be worth say.. Q.Williams?

(I’m sure this has already been asked. Didn’t feel like looking, sorry haha)

And I’m hoping there’s no rule that says you can’t trade a pick back to a team that you acquired it from, because this could get embarrassing.

    • Remember,  we are not debating whether Spring is doable.   I've stated from the beginning that I agree.    It's not as bad as some here think it is.    It's doable,   No question.   We are debating whether Spring is preferable, or desireable.    So, when you write,  that you don't think you have to say more about an issue,  any issue,  I'm sorry,   but NO!     You DO have to say more.  A heckuva lot more.    Because YOU have the burden of proof.    My position is the Industry Standard.   Your's has, by comparison,  a handful of examples.   Some are recent.   That's great.   But I view that as a nod to the position that it's doable.    You view it as a possibility that it might soon become the norm.   I'm happy to wait until that actually happens.   As to your primary argument.....    that all the prep work has been done,  and if you make the changes in winter,  that the GM is not up to speed on what the current scouts and player personnel people have done.    Except there is this......   Your argument that you yourself use to others here who complain that changing in the spring is bad.   To quote you....   it's just one draft.    One free agency period.    And there will soon be another,  and then another....   and another.   One season is nothing in the grand scheme of things.   That is what you wrote (roughly) to posters who think making the GM change in the spring is outright terrible and stupid.    Which I strongly disagree with their positin.   Your argument makes my argument for me.    I want the new GM in the building ASAP.    So he can sooner evaluate his players.    His front office.    His scouts.    The entire program.   Waiting until May or June just delays that.    I want it to begin ASAP.   I'd expect that he can and would be able to make some level of difference in his first free agency and draft.    Plus,  I think you way, way over-dramatize the handicap the new GM has arriving in January.   He's the GM.    He's already got a ton of information in his head,  and in his notebooks, his binders.    He's not in as much of a bind as you like to portray.     So, with your desired scenario, this draft could be used for a system that the new GM doesn't even want to run.    Like Chuck running a 3-4,  when Ballard wants to run a 4-3.    Like Chuck wanted to run a power running game and a deep pattern passing game.    While Ballard favors a zone running game and a get rid of the ball quick, move the chains offense.     In your preferred scenario,  you're the one who is burning the first year the GM has,  not me.     I see little of the benefits and mostly an approach that screams....   "Gee,  I hope this works out."   By the way,  I didn't want this post to end without addressing one of your main points.   Your paragraph that starts with this:   My Point:  There are always good candidates...   same is true for head coaches and coordinators.    I'm sorry,  but I'm going to STRONGLY disagree with that argument.  And I think you'll retract that.    Every so often you'll see an article about how did the class of GM's from a previous year turn out?   Or head coach hires?    I used to tell posters here who hated Pagano that the class of head coaches that included Chuck,  that all of the other coaches got fired before Chuck.    That Chuck was the best of his class.   And that happens with GM's too.   A class gets hired,  and quite often most of them, sometimes all of them don't work out.   I believe my position has far more facts to back that up.    There isn't always a Sean McVey.  There isn't always a Kyle Shannahan.   There isn't always a Josh McDaniels.   There aren't 32 good GM's, or 32 good head coaches,  or 32 good offensive or defensive coordinators.   That's why so many teams struggle for years to get those spots right.   So, no, I absolutely reject the idea that there are always good candidates.    Sorry.   I know you believe what you're writing.   But honestly, this feels like one big thought experiment. Like you're trying to make a case for something you really don't believe,  but you're trying to see if you can make a good argument anyway.   And yet I know that's NOT the case.    That you really, honestly do believe this.    That's what I find so astonishing.    There's lots of opinion,  and not a lot of evidence to back this up.    As I've said from the get-go....   I think this is doable.    I just don't think it's desireable or preferable.  
    • To your last paragraph....   yes,  I agree that if a GM,  any GM, inherits a bad roster,  then no matter how OK his draft picks may be,   they will likely stick on the roster.   But if you're a GM inheriting a poor team,  and you draft players that are only somewhat better than what you originally had,  then the improvement in the team will only be so good.   Again,  from 4 wis,  to perhaps 6-7.    That wouldn't be bad.    That would be reasonable.   But when you suddenly pop to 10 wins,  including 9 of the last 10 in the regular season,  and you win on the road in the playoffs,   then there's got to be something more there than just the GM's new guys.    Those guys have got to be good.    You can't do that well simply because they're better than the previous guys.    They're much better.    Yes, the coaching staff is better and the systems the team is running are better,  but so are the players.    They have to execute.    And we did.   Better than we thought possible.    Certainly better than when we were 1-5 and looked like a candidate for a top-10 or even a top-5 draft pick.    The players are good.   They may not be great yet,  but they're really good and much better than what we had.    The results are all the proof you need.   Again,  thanks for the exchange....  
    • I missed the first couple innings, was keeping track on phone, didn’t realize things got chippy with the benches clearing after the Contreras HR! Seems the Cubs were playing with a little extra edge tonight, I love it!!! 
    • and then NE goes into KC and throws for 350 and Sony runs for 100+ on them. our O, and O game plan just sucked.   i get KC was good, but our O just sucked.
