Colts draft Marvell Tell, DB, USC

Recommended Posts

I like this pick. Going Willis and Tell III back to back reminds me of doubling up on RB with the Hines and Willis pick. Although Tell III seems like more of a FS who is kind of built like a CB.

Actually wouldn't be surprised if they're thinking about trying him some at CB.

It's called the DRAFT. Every team is doing the same thing.   :scratch:

Incorrect... I'd have to assume they see this guy having potential as a CB as well as being able to play behind Hooker

Another explosive athlete that I can see being in a package CB role. Rangy guy if you've watched him play

I agree,,,thinking a position move....would be a good zone corner

So we draft 2 safeties plus picked up kindred.  The safety group is going to have some competition.

Great pick, love it... he's an athletic freak with great movement and change of direction skills. Not a great tackler for the position.... this along with the athleticism made some teams wonder if he can transition to CB... IMO we will use him as a special teams ace and moveable piece along the backfield.... maybe he can be in the slot in sub packages...

I'm convinced that we're playing a dime package on every down.

All safeties on the roster not named Malik Hooker are on notice. This is a good pick. Automatically should fill in as Hooker's backup. Don't think he'll ever be more than a spot starter, but it is something we need.

 

Moving to corner is an option as well.

Kiper just got done raving about him.  That S room just got deep.

Training camp is going to be a war for the secondary. This team has created so much depth in this draft.

These are the picks that make good general managers great. Hitting on one or two from rounds 5-7 is huge. 

 

We saw how the competition level at practice increased after last years haul. This group has the athleticism to challenge the skilled positions day in and day out. Really excited to see the final results today and get these guys in pads soon.

Colts are really focusing on our secondary. Three DBs after not drafting a single one last year

Mel kiper loves this pick. Said he at times looked like a 1st or 2nd rounder, great value in the 5th round. guess we'll see

Both Quincy Wilson and Kenny Moore are on notice, in my opinion, In case they become free agents after this year, One due to his contract and the other possibly if you cannot crack the starting lineup.

Sounds like the S we took out of Clemson a few years back 

Not really. They are nothing alike... besides being athletic. He's much better in coverage but not a great tackler.

Kenny Moore Lol. Unless last year was a fluke he will have no issues. He is a dog. Wilson yes. Not sure if either of the two safeties we took can even play nickel.

A pox on you for that comment!

 

I remember after that draft looking up Green’s game against Bama. It seemed like every play he was in showed the Bama TE scoring on him.  He was one of those guys who was fast in shorts, average in a uni.

I think we are getting a versatile player here. He could play at safety or CB. That is great for injuries.

In the case of Quincy bad practice habits! I think EVERY DB on the roster. is on notice at this point!
