Colts draft Parris Campbell, WR, Ohio State

Recommended Posts

He has a lot of similarities to Percy Harvin.  Luck is going to eat well next season

Going into the second round I said the Colts should take WR, DL, CB.

 

Boom!  3 for 3.

 

Good job Ballard.

Haha I take it you learned your lesson from last as well?

Could be a Tyreek Hill for us of course not counting the litigation to come

Darius Butler was PRAYING for this pick, and with his experience I would defer to him.  

 

That speed, in the slot, could be a nightmare for opposing defenses.

The KC game taught us 2 things.  We needed talent on D and another explosive reciever who could separate and take the double teams off Hilton.

In his presser, Ballard talked about finding players and creating roles... in every round.

 

Belichick will never be referenced in Indy, of course, but, in a lot of ways, that's what he's going for, I think.

If we could get Butler as well then the WR room becomes a big strength of the team

He can do punt and kick return too i believe. He will probably squeeze Chester Rogers out of here at some point.

I will be shocked if it's not early. IMO Campbell is close to ready to go in the slot and gadget plays role. He might need some work for outside reps, but oh well... Rogers didn't get many outside receiver reps anyways.

If everyone on offense is healthy we are going to be so explosive.

Im imagining this thing if we get something out of Cain this year. I think Cain is going to be a baller too. Probably will take till late in the year.

Inman more than likely wont be resigned.

 

Inman will be more willing to re-sign now for market value, let me put it that way. :)

We needed a Tyreek Hill/Percy Harvin type guy.

I watched a lot of Terry McLaurin/OSU games to try and see what I thought the Colts saw in him...and every game I came away super impressed with Parris Campbell. He does really well in crossing routes and Reich/Nick seem to love running those. And of course Reich loves trying those screens so that should also be fun to see.

I think with our up tempo, quick release offense, he will be absolutely lethal. Just get the ball out to him quickly and move the chains.

Between him, Hines, and Hilton Andrew Luck’s life is getting a lot easier.

FInally a pick I love! Could take over for Hilton as our long term explosive WR :)

Hilton is a great route runner, I think cambell is more of a screen and drag specialist.... at least as of now

He got some dawg in him. I’m so excited for this season. Nyheim and Parris are going to give teams FITS.

 

not even taking into consideration Doyle, Ebron, the potential of Funchess, and a healthy TY.

When Andrew gets Parris the ball in space it's over for the defense.

 

People may think we now have two deep threats, but that's not correct. 

 

We have three.

Deon ran in the low 4.4 and at Clemson he showed that he can also beat DBs deep.

 

Good luck covering all our weapons.

Health is key. 

 

 

But let’s not get ahead of ourselves.  Gotta see him translate that to the NFL yet

Yeah, that was my first thought.  They still wanna see what happens with Cain.  Ballard recently said he still believes Cain can be a #2.

I thought it was really unique. Thats why i stayed so heavy on Pariss. You dont see too many 4.31 slot guys with the size of a #1 receiver. And i loved the fact that he used to be a running back. Goes really well with those slants and quick hitters we run. A lot of the plays i saw them running at OSU were similar to stuff we do in this O under Reich and he was explosive. Im sure it was easy for Reich and Ballard to see the fit.

Ballard has created a great culture by targeting system players that fit his needs.  Regardless of the naysayers he picks based off his board, which is based off thousands of hours of actual research.  In that respect maybe he does emulate BB.

Funchess is a deep threat due to his size. Especially over the middle and deep out/deep comeback.

    • You are the one forming a conclusion about Reich's performance.  So what is it, that he should have called more pass plays because we won last time by doing that and we lost this time when we called more run plays?   That's it?   About Williams, as I said, perhaps Williams can't do things in the passing game that Mack can, and can only run between the tackles well and not the edge.  I pointed out that we ran the same between the tackles run play about 8 times.  I assume Frank made those calls because that's about all the player who was available could do, at least at this point with the team...not to mention it was working.   If you want to use stats to form conclusions, fine by me.  But it would be less condescending and inflammatory if you would stop insinuating that others who don't use them much have inferior support for their conclusions.       
    • It's only funny because it's true.  
    • Look at this play. Only one receiver is looking back at the QB. JB was sacked on this play.    
    • Ballard has spent his entire time here rebuilding this team to where it is now very competitive and currently in a close division race.  Luck messed everything up but he traded for JB and gave him a new contract.  He might not be an all pro but he can win if he has a good supporting class.  I can see Ballard drafting a QB but trading up in the 1st rd to get one is something I can't envision.  Rookie QB's make rookie mistakes and rarely win out of the gate.  I think he thinks this team is very close right now and moving up to get a QB would be a risky maneuver that I don't see him making.  
    • You're arguing over the difference between a JAG 30 year old and a JAG 24 year old. It's inconsequential. Neither Inman nor Pascal make the offense better.     I agree, but which players?     My criticism isn't really about the amount of runs vs the amount of passes. It's about creating an opportunity for your offense to exploit the opposing defense.   And along those lines, if the conventional wisdom is you should establish the run to set up play action, then at what point was the run established last night? When was the Texans' defense primed for a play action fake? It makes me think that's not the strategy. They wanted to avoid throwing the ball as much as possible, is what I think.     Yeah, and maybe a big play or two from our offense would have resulted in a win.   And the bolded didn't hold true at the end of the game, did it? First and 10, run play, 2 yards. Next first and 10, run play, 2 yard. Next first and 10, run play, 0 yards. Situational play calling is way more important than yardage totals.
