Is mike Mitchell still a colt?

Recommended Posts

I know this is kind of random and probably not the most important thread on here but I was just wondering if mike Mitchell is still a colt or is he a free agent?  The webpage has him still on the depth chart but I dunno how up to date they are. 

  I know we can probably easily upgrade from him I just remember Quincy Wilson saying he was such a great mentor and basically saved his career. I think it would Be good to keep him for depth and to be a mentor to guys like Wilson. So is he still a colt and if not has anyone picked him up yet???  Thanks.

I think it might depend on whether he signs somewhere else before the draft and whether Ballard drafts a safety relatively high. If neither will happen, I can see him coming back later in the summer.

I only think that happens in case of injuries though. Also, the fact that Gathers only got one year might imply that Ballard has an upgrade in mind as the SS starter, probably from the draft.

 Hmmm! I clicked on Team up on the top of this page and the roster came up.
 He wasn't on it. Looks like a great source.

We had  a number of safeties that were all sort of the same guy, IMO.  And of the lot, we only have Geathers secured to the roster.  Maybe the others we tendered?  But S looks like a target for the draft.

Probably.  Farley will most likely be a Colt with that 2nd round tender.  He’s underrated IMO.   

 

Odum started out pretty bad, but I saw improvement towards the end of the season.  He’s a serviceable #4 we could do better. 

 

With Geathers injury history, I’m sure they’d love to find someone to pair with Hooker in the future.

I agree Farley will be back. I also think he’s underrated ideally he’s a back up

or comes on as a third S. He has done well starting. The guy always seems to make his presence felt. 

 

We have Hooker Geathers Farley and Odum as we sit a S. I feel like that’s a spot we look to add competition to early in the draft. Gardner-Johnson is the kid I’d like to draft even if it takes our first rounder.

 

The versatility he’d bring would impact the  back end  day one. He can play any S role at the line, single high you name it. He has experience at CB mainly playing the slot. He can do it all back there

    • We were discussing the overreaction to the tweet not the play         
    • My God, you're right...   It's a conspiracy, man.   If Reich know tha hez company loyal to stand by the nonsense and the obvimously lack of talent an holes on diz roster then then he knows that if he shows JB can't reaf his progrezions den the opposing teams will have the advantage! Reich try to tank for a top 10 pick! We all know it!   BACK TO THE PILE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!               *I lost today's internal battle, because of my brother to the north...

    • If VM is saying it, it's likely because he's parroting what management is saying. Not saying it's not true, or true, just saying there's always a narrative. 
    • The lack of light front carries is either play calling, or JB's choice. Light front carries may also be down simply because of down and distance when facing light fronts. I'm guessing this goes at least partly to JB's struggles with reading Ds.   And using "stacked box" stats are very imperfect. It's not always about what how many are in the box, it's what those guys do when the ball is snapped. The stacked box stat typically only measures 8+ defenders in the box at the time of snap. What it doesn't tell you is what the front seven does. Do the LBs play the run or go into coverage is the more accurate measurement, along with how much nickel and dime coverage you see.    If I were a D vs JB, I'd go standard package (no nickel/dime) most of the time, and have the LBs play run or shallow crossing, which is what we are generally seeing. 4 DBs on standard downs is sufficient vs our current O.  I'm going to say Reich and JB are making it more predictable. If the passing game is more successful, and the play calling isn't as conservative, we're not having this problem at all. Like I said in a previous post, very few team have RB1s that are dynamic in both running and passing. And honestly that's not Reich's O. Mack is 12 of 14 (yes only 14), so he's been very reliable. It's more lack of targets and play calling if anything.  He is an APB. An APB does not run it between the tackles often, and that's what Reich typically calls for him... An APB is a change of pace back that is usually more edge, sweep, receiving,  and gimmicky. I'd say his "average" play, is a product of use type. White rushing is 32 attempts for 104 yards, and a 3.3 average. Hines is 22 for 66 and 3.0 with mostly between the T rushes. Last year with Luck, Hines was 85/315 and 3.7 rushing.... do you see the difference....  Yes it's rare to have a stud #1 RB that excels in both. I think we are under utilizing Mack in the passing game, and I think Hines is hampered by both rush play calling, and by JB in the passing game. That's what they numbers suggest anyway.
