Colts draft EJ Speed, LB, Tarleton St.

Recommended Posts

I think he's actually a defensive guy/LB'er. Also was arrested apparently for a couple felonies? Apparently the charges were dismissed though. Good to hear.

I don't know anything about him as player though, other than that he's fast.

Well if that's not a WR name, then I don't know what is.

Gotta be a high potential diamond in the rough type. Hard to imagine a guy like him wouldn't be available as a udfa

Little bit of info on him and Tarleton St:

 

”Speed’s senior year was the college gem he had been searching for as he fulfilled the potential the switch the linebacker promised as recorded a team-high 106 tackles with 55 of those solo stops. Speed recorded 12 tackles for losses, five sacks and an interception as the Texans ran out an undefeated LSC season and finished the year 12-1 in the third round of the NCAA D2 playoffs.”

Ah, didn't see Joe Jackson was still available at our pick. Dang. Maybe had character or injury concerns?

An arrest doesn’t equal a conviction.

I have no idea who this is but they must like him a lot to have him this high on the draft board. Usually it is the late 6th-7th round when you go for these small school guys.

 

Ballard is really going heavy on defense this draft. Parris is the only offensive player drafted so far.

What was confusing was that the second article I read was about the diversity he had faced in his college career but said nothing of the arrest

The tv listed him as a WR.

He started his college career as a WR. Made the transition to LB & thrived.

Apparently the Grand Jury found evidence enough to arrest but insufficient to convict.  Charges were dropped.  Was arrested with a group of guys for identity theft.

    • What is the record in here for most pages? I really do not know  . 21 is a lot.
    • Just checked Cam's background again. My point stands.   0-for-5.
    • I really liked how they incorporated that fountain injury into that. Cain is going to be fun watch develop. Seems he has really matured. He is expecting a son soon so I am sure he has grown up a lot.
