Colts draft Parris Campbell, WR, Ohio State

Recommended Posts

As if you needed any more reasons to be excited about this dude in the Colts offense, I especially like all of the discussion about why he wasn't used more downfield at pOSU, and the potential he has as a downfield threat, without further ado:

Reich didn't call plays in Philly. He basically managed Pederson's scheme and relayed Pederson's calls. That's why I don't see our O as permanently being a mirror to Philly. I think we're trying to tweak for added vertical attack (hence the 3 speed WRs in the last 2 years)

 

I said the same thing about Parris (and OSU) above to Luck4Pres

 

Whether we're going more vertical or not, I've never seen Reich's offense as a mirror of Philly's. Reich was with Pederson two years. Before that, he was with Mike McCoy (who has a lot of offensive influences), before that he was with Whisenhunt (a Coryell guy, who has a lot of similar influences as Bruce Arians), and before that, he was with Tom Moore. And of course, his playing career was mostly in the K-gun. 

 

Reich's offense is an amalgam of a lot of different things. I think his approach is to be as multiple as possible, and that will include stretching the field vertically. His Coryell background speaks for itself there, and Campbell has a lot of traits that would fit into a Coryell offense. It's hard not to see Mike Wallace / Santonio Holmes / Antonio Brown (but faster) when watching Campbell. He looks like a Bruce Arians prototype.

Lots of post routes going vertical from the slot/Z type that is off the line of scrimmage making the TE eligible, like the Chargers did with Tyrell Williams, like the crossing routes they did with Keenan Allen and Tyrell Williams etc. is what I expect.

Urbs O works, so I can't criticize from a game perspective, but we hear often come draft time how hard OSU's WRs are to grade and project. Regarding Parris, it's not so much that his route tree was limited, it was how much it was limited. 

 

Urban liked the JT/Tebow style QB's because that fit his run first/pass option offense, but Haskins completely wiped that scheme away. Day was handed the reigns and the only input from Urban last year was the way they ran the ball, however they couldn't, even with the OL being built to. They were that bad in both run and pass blocking. They were down 1000 yards rushing from 2017 with the transition from Barrett to Haskins.

 

To emphasize more on the bolded, because we haven't had a true passing QB since Troy Smith. Cardale gave us a small sample size, but they ruined it the following year with how they played both him and JT. If Michael Thomas had been able to play with Haskins last year, holy sh, he would have been far and away the best WR on the board. Hopefully now with Day at the helm we'll start seeing more traditional passers who have running ability (Justin Fields is going to fit Days scheme perfect) instead of limited passers who can run.

They will add some deep shots to. CAMPBELL is too fast to only be catching  screens

The thing that makes me wonder if he cannot take some Z-reps from the start is the fact that Campbell got rave reviews about his routes at the combine. Now they are all reps against air so... take with a grain of salt, but it's possible that he wasn't used to the best of his potential at Ohio State. 

 

The few vertical routes he ran showed off his speed and showed that he tracks the ball well, even over his shoulder... For as fast as he is... he's actually not a small receiver. As ridiculous as it sounds he's closer to the Deebo Samuels than to the Andy Isabellas or Hollywood Browns of the world when it comes to his size. He's a very well put receiver. I wonder how he would do on contested catches. He has both horizontal and vertical athleticism. 

 

I really cannot wait to see how he's going to be used. I'm so excited. Can you imagine Parris/TY/Ebron in a bunched up trips formation with Cain isolated at the X. Oh boy! Pick your poison.

That's why I swear I saw drool dripping off Frank's chin as Ballard talked about Campbell in the news conf. I'll have to go back and check the film. haha

Agree. When I was said mirroring Philly, I was responding  to others. Earlier, in maybe this thread, I lined out Reich's career supporting why we won't end up a Philly O. Definitely agree on multiple. We now can stretch vertically and horizontally. Love that the entire field is now in play.

    • LOL. I'm not saying college is comp to NFL. What I am saying is if you're trying to gauge his ability to play vs tougher  or elite competition, Bama's D was tops in college for many of those years. I'm not saying his O in college could compete with NFL teams. I'm saying Bama had some of the best talent in college, and for instance, that would translate into increased pressure, tighter windows, etc....   And HS to College really isn't a good comp either. I played for a HS that won state twice while I was there. I had no delusions of them competing against a college team. I might take LSU or OSU over the Bengals this year though lol.
    • This mischaracterizes the issue in its entirety.  Just because it takes a long time for QBs to find generational talents at QB is not a reason they shouldn't try to get better at the position if the team doesn't have a generational talent at QB.  Bill Belichick has had Brady for the past 20 years and he's still drafted a QB every other year.  In the past 10 years, he's drafted 3 QBs in the 2nd and 3rd rounds.     It seems as though what you have in mind is teams selling the farm to trade up and take the #1 QB in the class at #1.  There are so many other viable ways ot get franchise QBs better than the one we have.  If we used a 2nd or 3rd on a QB, could it be the next Drew Brees or Russel Wilson?  Maybe.  But even if it's not and he sits a year and then ends up being better than Brissett, that's a win.  We can try again in another year or two.  You should always try to improve your roster and add valuable depth, no matter what the position is.     Yeah, we have a mediocre QB.  We should still be using higher draft capital and perhaps trading up in cases where it makes sense.  
    • At least he would add to the running game.  But still, no thanks. I'll take our chances in the draft.
    • I bet Irsay is already working on the paperwork to rename Lucas Oil to Okereke Stadium.   This thread title nominated for hottest take of the year.
    • My own experiences in the world of football are what make it really hard for me to accept any sort of comp like this... If youll allow me to be "that guy" for a moment to explain...   I was a part of a 4 time repeating 5A state championship IHSAA program... technically only 3 of those... the first one was when I was in 8th grade lol...   But Ill use the last of the 4 peat teams- 2007- as my example...   That team was LOADED with D1 NCAA talent... there were more than 12 players that signed day 1 of national signing day...   I figured that, that team would stack up, and beat, most college teams...   After graduating HS, I went to be an on scholarship coach at a prominent NAIA school in the state...   Day 1 of Spring Training Observations...   This small, NAIA school... would WIPE THE FLOOR with my old HS teams... even if taking just the best players from each year to make 1 team... The NAIA school still wins. No question...   Now thats just NAIA... D2 and D1 schools made my NAIA school look like my old HS teams...   ...   So I get it... Bama is a huge program that gets many players ready to produce at the NFL level...   But there is still a jump up the ladder in comp...    And college success DOES NOT AT ALL mean that an individual player is a lock to ball out because of what they did at the level below...   TED talk is over... Thank you for listening    Edit to add clarity... I know you said may not translate not will translate... so please dont think the end of my ted talk is implying you said something you did not lol
