Ben Banogu

Recommended Posts

I just watched You Tube clip on him. Wow. Between Okereke,Banogu and D. Leonard this will be the "Big Blue Wrecking Crew". I never heard of him.  He is very fast like Leonard.  The season could not come soon enough.   I saw 2 postseason polls and we are in ranked in the top 5. Colin Cowherd has us ranked #2.    Patriots #1  I don't know about that.

I really love this pick. I was hoping for the DE from Iowa, but the fact that Ben can play multiple positions is what sold me.

I recall going to Lions games and when Suh made a big play the crowd would yell "SUUUUUUH"

 

So, we'll be able to yell...BAAANOOOGUUUUU

Well, with less talent on both sides of the ball last year they went on a hell of a run. You'd think with another year/offseason under their belts, and adding Houston, Funchess, Ware, and the draft picks, they're better suited to continue that level of play. I can't think of 5 more talented rosters.

We had some good clips of Bjorn Werner if I recall. I'm optimistic on all players until they prove themselves one way or another. Anyway, must go, meeting up with my sister, Debbie D for a coffee.

This guy reminds me so much of Darius Leonard. I can't wait to watch this guy what speed he has for his size.

He's 6'4" 250.  Impressive speed.

Bjorn looked stiff as a board and very mechanical in his videos... I think a lot of people saw that very early on!

Very athletic but doesn't show a variety of moves rushing the passer.

Wasn't TJ Green known as an athlete who played football but didn't have a strong suite of skills for his forecasted position?

 

If our pass rusher doesn't have a lot of pass rushing moves but is a great athlete who could therefore be used in various ways, I'm not sure why my optimism should outweigh my concerns.

This pick will either crash really hard and look stupid or he will be star. I don’t think there is a middle ground. This pick is very ambitious by Ballard.

if it crashes it won't be that big of a loss being that it was a mid second round pick.

Mid 2nd round picks are pretty valuable though...

This guy has great instincts and a relentless motor. His pass rush moves may be limited but that is teachable to a great athlete. Mr Mathis? Your new pupil. 

TJ Green had zero instincts and a so so motor. That is not teachable.

Bjorn was the poster child for Loafing which our DC does not tolerate.

Werner simply wasn’t talented. He failed for that reason, not for lack of effort. But WHAT did Grigson see in this guy? No bend whatsoever. No instincts. Just awful.

I have listened to two interviews with this guy. I am super impressed. He is super smart and really understands the game of football.  I think this guy is going to be a star. His football IQ is odd the charts.

    • Since Vinny's knee is basically shot for the 2019 season this is a great chance for Chris Ballard to get a good look at McLaughling as possibly the Colts starting kicker beyond 2019. Either way, the Colts will move on from Vinatieri no matter what he decides to go beyond 2019. Place him on IR and see what you have from McLaughing. Worst case scenario you sign or draft another Kicker to be your guy.
    • I don’t care if this team had Tyreek Hill and Deandre Hopkins, Brissett would still stand in the pocket for five seconds and then dump it off to Doyle in the flat. The guy is not the answer, and a bunch of cherry picked stats about his ‘efficiency’ is not going to change that. 
    • He was signed off the street by the Niners. But he was a "non-vested" player, which means he doesn't have enough years of service to reach unrestricted free agency. So whatever team he's on would have his exclusive rights for 2020 and 2021, whether he was claimed on waivers or signed as a free agent. Then he can be a restricted free agent in 2022.   His contract technically expires at the end of the 2019 league year, but the Colts can tender him and effectively extend his rookie contract, one year at a time, until 2023. (And at that point, they could franchise tag him, assuming that provision still exists in the new CBA.)   As a UDFA, the CBA allows him to be signed to a veteran extension after two years of service; for drafted players, it's three years. Until then, his contract is based on the rookie wage scale, which was determined by the CBA.   A recent case study for this is Kenny Moore. He signed with the Patriots as a UDFA in 2017, then was waived at cut down, and the Colts claimed him. After 2018, he had two years of service, so he was eligible to sign a veteran extension, which is what he did in the 2019 offseason. If he had not agreed to an extension, the Colts could have tendered him as an ERFA for 2019, and then as an RFA for 2020.
    • RG3 would be available also
    • IF Ballard and Reich still think JB is the answer at this point, then we need to start thinking about who is running what at Colt world HQs.
