Ward is not a DE, he's a 3T in our system.

I like your list. but believe Ross will be a TE on this team

 

I also feel like we still need an additional RB and NT to complete the rotation for this crew.... and real depth at LT just in case AC gets hurt

 

I guess you dont think Mohammed will make the team?

I would be amazed if Campbell was our #2 at anytime in the first half of the season. 

He has him listed as a #3.

 

Funchess is listed as #2 WR

I hope Ross can stay healthy, if so he makes the team.  They’re high on the big RB Williams, I think they carry 4 even if it’s not him.

Pre-season adds are bound to happen at the thin RB position, IMO. 

 

Amongst FAs still available, Jay Ajayi and LeGarette Blount are primarily between the tackle runners that offer little in the receiving game, the only one that can offer a bit more on the receiving side in a rotational role is Bilal Powell, who I still think is a good back.

With it being uncertain that Doyle will respond well to his hip surgery when he is back in the line-up, I am thinking TE is currently our thinnest position.  Followed by RB (though, if healthy, I think Mack, Hines, Wilkins is a formidable trio).

 

Sounds like the Hale Hentges from Alabama is one of the best blocking RB's in the draft, but he's only had 11 catches (6 for TDs) in the past 2 seasons.  Mo Alie-Cox I think has good potential, but I'm not totally sure he's ready to be the #1 TE if Doyle has any hiccups in his recovery and something happens to Ebron.  Especially because Reich really likes the 2 TE sets.

 

I wonder if Funchess, with his size, will at times be playing almost a hybrid TE/WR role.  

 

For sure, though, we're going to see many more moves between now and week 1.  I just hope we stay healthy and if we're dropping guys from our current group it's because we found a better player on waivers or through trade/FA rather than due to the injury bug.

They are very high on George Odom and you don’t have him listed as a Safety I think he makes the team over Kindred.

Why does it matter who the 123 WR. We  are going to have three on  field a lot and luck will hit the best target. He isn’t going to care who is 123.

 

It's a misnomer anyway.

 

There were plays last year where we only had one WR on the field and it was Pascal.

 

There might be plays this year where we only have two WRs on the field and it's TY and Campbell, or it's Funchess and Pascal, or any combination of WRs.  It doesn't matter where they're listed on the depth chart, it matters how Reich is going to use them for specific plays.

The back end gets tricky. There is a lot more talent this year than last year. 

 

I think Ward, Lewis, and Autry are all kinda interchangeable so I wanted to get one of them as a backup DE so they could get some more reps. I think we are going to see a lot of different combos on the D-line. for instance I would be happy with any of these Autry/Ward/Hunt/Sheard     Houston/Autry/Ward/Turay   Ward/Lewis/Autry/Houston   Banogu/Ward/Stewart/Sheard. 

 

Odum, Ross, and Mohammed could make the squad. We are going to be cutting some good players in my opinion unfortunately. 

 

WR wise in order I think it'll be Hilton/Funchess/Campbell/Cain/Pascal/Rogers

 

Everyone else feel free to make one. I would love to see them to compare please!

Here is my way too early projected 53. I merged TE, OL, WR 'cause it's easier for the eye to read. There are usually no clear cut designated roles anyway. Added a few names in parenthesis who might replace the guy listed last (or might make the roster as +1 at that position if they decide to keep one more there).

 

Offense:

QB - Luck, Brissett (2)

RB - Mack, Hines, Wilkins, UDFA (Williams) (4)

WR - Hilton, Funches, Rogers, Campbell*, Cain, Pascal (6)

TE - Doyle, Ebron, Ali-Cox, Travis (4)

OL - Castonzo, Nelson, Kelly, Glowinski, Smith / Clark, Haeg, Boehm, Webb (Garcia) (9)

 

Defense:

DT/NT: Hunt, Stewart, Autry, Lewis, Ward (5)

DE - Houston,  Sheard, Turay, Muhammad (4)

LB - Leonard, Walker, Okereke*, Banogu*, Adams, Franklin (Speed*) (6)

CB - Desir, Moore, Wilson, Ya-Sin*, Milton, Tell* (Jalen Collins) (6)

S - Hooker, Farley, Geathers, Willis* (Odum) (4)

 

Spect team:

Vinny,  Sanchez, Rhodes (3)

 

PS:

Fountain, Green*, Barton*, Patterson*, Speed* (Franklin),  (Odum), (Tell* if Collins is in), Philip Walker (or Kelly)

------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

So regarding the rookies, Campbell, Okereke, Banogu, Ya-Sin, Willis, Tell and an UDFA RB will make the 53, the rest will go to the PS, along with a few UDFA-s. I took only 4 DE's - which is less than the Colts normally would - because Banogu, Ward, Lewis will all play DE in certain situations, so there will be 5-6 guys playing at DE in rotation. They are just listed at different positions.

 

There will be some serious battle for spots at WR, LB and CB. (Milton will probably make the roster because he is a terrific gunner in spec team. So there's only 5 spots - max - remaining there.)

    • Lets say we play Eason and we don't know much about him so I am not bashing the guy. What do you think our record would be? I said 7-9 which is probably pretty accurate unless he is just stunningly good. At this point Ballard isn't even sure if he would be a great backup.
    • Zib?    Bowen doesn't have "sources".    He says this is mostly his interpretation of the events.  He says he's connecting the dots.   What makes the most sense to him.    He never once said someone told me.    The closest things he said to sources is that he's heard "chatter".   I wouldn't call that sources.     I'm not knocking Bowen.    I think he makes a very strong case for connecting the dots based on the timing of events, plus what went down in the last few weeks and what we all thought might happen.      But if he had this as a "scoop" and had "sources,  there's no way he buries this in the middle of an hour long podcast and never teased that he had the inside scoop on what went down with Phillip Rivers and the Colts.   That would be journalistic malpractice.   
    • OK.....   Found it.   There's a section, roughly 11:30 minutes long.   It runs from approx 35:00 to approx 46:30.   Kevin almost downplays that he he has sources,  says he's heard talk,  but he makes a very strong and compelling case where he connects the dots.     And the dots seem to connect.   Dodds interviews for the Detroit job.   Somewhere in that talk,  the Lions likely share that Stafford wants to move on.  And the Lions will look to trade him.    That there's no way that Rivers would retire after talking up wanting to come back,  after recently moving his family to Indy, and his kids have been enrolled in exclusive schools in the area,  and then turn around and suddenly hang 'em up.    That Indy wanted to treat Rivers with respect and likely said to him that he can handle his retirement any way he wants,  and the colts will support that.    Kevin says Indy fans should feel good if this is true,  because to him it signals that Indy and Ballard have a plan.   He also turns around and says if the trade for Stafford doesn't work out,  then he hopes they can trade up and draft their QB of the future.   That things will get difficult for the Colts if the Stafford deal doesn't happen,  the Colts situation suddenly looks much more difficult.   Kevin clearly says this is his interpretation of the events.   I think he makes a strong argument.   But he does not cite sources.  He didn't get an inside tip.   But this is how he thinks the scenario played out.   Go listen to the passage.   See what you think.  
    • Cowboys have ~13m in cap space going into the 2021 offseason.  Most FAs are not worthy to resign it appears except for Jourdan Lewis and S Xavier Woods.  If the Cowboys tag Dak they will be immediately in the red.  So where is this extra cap space coming from to resign or tag Dak?    Logical the Boys are at the point where they must decide to cut young starting LG Connor Wiliams save ~1.8m against the cap.  Seems also need to cut K Greg Zuerlein and add another 1.5m savings.  Randy Gregory would be an easy cut as well saving another 1.2m.  Now we are talking about ~18.3 in available cap space.  Can keep cutting players like TE Dalton Shultz boost cap by another 1.5m.  Punter Chris Jones would be another likely candidate imo to get cut and save another 1.4m and now were only at 21.2m in savings.  That’s the bulk of their team from where I can see them gaining capital back.  One other player is WR Michael Gallup that could save them 1.7m but can realistically see used as trade bait to gain extra draft picks.  Bottom line is I cannot see the Cowboys resigning or even attempting to franchise tag Prescott and have no choice but to draft a low cost young QB replacement in the draft with their first pick.  Don't be surprised to see Dallas move up on Day 1 and trade Gallup for the lost draft capital to help offset.   Welcome Dak to the Colts and let’s go digest the rest of offseason.  When the Rams signed QB Goff to an average of $33.5 million per year Prescott reportedly was seeking a new deal in the $34 million per year range.  I didn’t add salary incentives this year just base salary due to cap reductions this year but added $10 million bonus each next 3 years and increased pay scale from 35, 36, 38, 40 million next few years.   64.887m cap space 2021 * updated OTC as of 01/27   Retired Rivers AC   Cut Skia Moore – 850k   FA Signings QB Dak Prescott - 35m increasing 40m next 4 years LT Roderick Johnson 2m/yr.  PFF stated he played 245 OL snaps only allowing 3 penalties and 1 sacks last season.  Would be a solid acquisition even coming from the Texans. RDE Dawuane Smoot 5m/4yr.  A little faster than Muhammad should be good in-house competition LCB Ahkello Witherspoon 3m/3yrs – Real deal CB imo get this guy signed ASAP even if means deselecting another   Colts FA’s lost Autry Hooker Clark – wanted to retire Walker JR Mack Wilson STP Houston Green Brissett Hilton   Unrestricted Free Agents: Carrie STP 1 / 1.5m – solid back  Hunt 2 /950k   Burton 1 / 3m – played 33% of snaps Stallworth - 1 / 750 k * updated colts already extended Dulin 2 / 1m STP *update Colts already extended Rhodes –played 87% snaps on a 1.5m contract resign 3m/year deal Muhammad (starter) – 4 / 3m first year Odum resign less than RFA 1m   Restricted Free Agents:  MAC UDFA – 2nd Round Tender 3.422m Pascal RFA 2nd Round tender 3.422m Smith ERFA 1 / 850 k STP   OTC says 74 players under contract and OTC Cap Room projected 9.322m for 2021   Draft Needs: LT, WR, LDE, SS, RB   Draft:   R1 LT Christian Darrisaw (Virginia Tech) – Long shot but my dream selection here and pending Combine could see him move higher in RD 1   R2 WR Nico Collins (Michigan) - 2019 led Big 10 receivers 0.0% drop rate and 81.3% contested catch rate and had the highest broken-tackle rate   R3 Edge/LB Charles Snowden (Virginia) - Snowden stands 6-foot-7. SAM linebacker blitzing / played both ends or more of a 3-4 OLB.  Great football awareness very solid in run support.  2018 breakout star along with Rock Ya.  With his size and speed like to switch him to 4-3 Edge.   R4 ILB Garret Wallow (TCU) Extremely athletic with impressive sideline-to-sideline speed and can lineup in the box, cover the slot and has a good grasp of where he should be in zone defense.   R5 SS Divine Deablo (Virginia Tech) - has elite size and excellent speed.  Very strong player/good tackler.  Bit tight in his hips limit his range but we need a decent backup and he should do fine.   R6 RB Devin Wynn (Furman) – Decent ground game.  Rarely used in pass plays.   R7 WR Emeka Emezie (NC St) - Z position size and speed to separate.  Willing blocker in Run game.  Impressive hands in contested engagements.  Impressive layout diving catch vs Virginia 6:13 3Q.  Originally struggled with dropped passes but cleaned that up this year.   UDFA MLB Blake Gallagher (Northwestern) – Bit on the small side 6’0” but one heck of a tackler in the open field.  All-Big 10 honors in 2018 after a campaign that saw him tally 127 stops (7.5 for a loss) and an interception.  Wisconsin game had a good QB strip for turnover.  Good chase angles and hustle down field.  Tip ball caused team INT.  Impressing blitz sack.  Looks good in both run, blitz and coverage support.   Overall a solid group to build upon.  For 2022 can see our focus on TEs, RCB and potentially LDE if we move Snowden to SLB.  Shall see how well Wallow does his rookie season before adjusting.  We got a young QB for long-term.   The Colts should be playoff contenders for many years.   3WR 1TE   QB Dak Prescott Jacob Eason   RB Jonathan Taylor Nyheim Hines Jordan Wilkins Devin Wynn   WR Nico Collins Emeka Emezie Ashton Dulin Gary Jennins   WR Michael Pittman Jr. Dezmon Patmon Quartney Davis   WR Zach Pascal Parris Campbell DeMichael Harris   TE Jack Doyle Trey Burton Mo Alie-Cox Noah Togiai   LT Christian Darrisaw Roderick Johnson   LG Quenton Nelson Joey Hunt   C Ryan Kelly Danny Pinter   RG Mark Glowinski Jake Eldrenkamp   RT Branden Smith Will Holden   Base 4-3 D   LDE Charles Snowden Ben Banogu Kemoko Turay   LDT DeForest Buckner Tyquan Lewis   RDT Grover Stewart Taylor Stallworth   RDE Al-Quadin Muhammad Dawuane Smoot Kemoko Turay   WLB Darius Leonard Matthew Adams   MLB Garret Wallow Zaire Franklin Jordan Glasgow   SLB Bobby Okereke E.J.
