Parris Campbell already Impressing

Recommended Posts

I know it’s not in game stuff but interesting he seems to be fielding the deep balls really well.

Nice to read!  I feel like he is going to be impressive with that world class speed and his catching ability.

Could Campbell be the steal of the draft? Of course too early to tell but what a talent with electric speed.

He could be. I mean he has a elite QB. We also have a ton of weapons so he could be open a ton.

It seems Willis is looking good also. From what I read everyone said he was the one player which could step in immediately if there was a injury.

Yeah Luck might put up numbers like Mahomes did last year if Campbell has a big year.

Everyone said the best rookie wide receiver will be the one that’s goes to the best QB.

 

Something else to keep in mind. Everyone talks about him having to learn the nfl route tree.  What analysts don’t stop to realize is  maybe some of these kids work on that stuff in their own free time. Just because OSU didnt use him right doesn’t mean he didn’t work on that stuff in his free time.

Some were saying that he was misused at Ohio State and showed very well with routes and tracking deep ball at the combine. So maybe no big surprise ?

I am really excited about this upcoming season. I think this is the year where we take a step back into the upper echelon of NFL teams where we are considered contenders again. Personally, I am thankful for our owner Mr. Irsay and his ability to trust his guys in Ballard and Coach Reich. Very excited about the direction our franchise in heading in!

There have also been a few videos floating around showing that whenever he did go deep, Haskins would miss him by a mile. The deep ball accuracy was one of Haskins' major criticisms so there's probably a few reasons why he wasn't used deep.

I saw some of those. Haskins did not do him any favors. They were awful throws.

If that is the case , it cost the guy an awful lot of money.

This is a great video mentioning just because he wasn’t asked to go deep at OSU doesn’t mean he can’t.

I think Parris Campbell is our most pro ready guy by far, especially considering the QB who will be throwing to him.

As an avid Spartan fan I found it humorous how everyone was dogging my boy Khari Willis. Can't wait for him to prove everyone wrong. He is one of those guys that is always in the right place at the right time and was the heart and soul of one of the best defenses (not named Bama or Clemson) in the nation last year in the college ranks.

 

Won't be shocked when he is starting by the end of the season next year.

Ballard’s favorite guy in the draft I think. Always calls him intelligent.

I love hearing Parris, and Deep in the same sentence as we all know what he can do short. 

Hope to hear Cain, and Deep later.

Great article here. There are some tidbits of when he went up against rock.

Love his honesty....as opposed to being braggadocios. 

 

“Since I never done it, everyone just kinda put a ‘no’ on it,” he said. “But I’m not going to lie to you, it’s something I need to work on just because I didn’t have experience".

Parris, TY, Funch, Ebron, Hines and Mack. The defenses are going 

to be trailing behind our offensive guys a ton this year.

Awesome!  I just heard on some podcast, locked on colts I think, that he was a bad pick and only caught two deep passes last year.  

This is great news.

I heard him speak on the NFL network and he seems like a bright and enthusiastic young man.  He was very happy that he has the locker next to TY and plans on driving him crazy with questions and advice!

The whole "playing outside receiver" part of the report really is interesting. I said earlier he could play anywhere (Z, Slot, or even X) if he can beat the press at the line. I know it's early, but this is great news. If Cain is slow to come back, or god forbid never gets his speed back, It would be really nice to have Parris as an outside option. No sense over analyzing now or making assumptions, but interesting nonetheless. I'd say at minimum they could use him as a situational speed X.

The more I hear him speak, the more I like him. He's very down to earth, humble, and motivated.

 

He's quickly becoming one of my favorite Colts player.

Man I love Baseball but I can't wait for Football. I haven't been this excited about going into a season since 2015. I think we have a better team now than what we had in 2014.

    • we are in a division that likes to run too.   the titans and texans ranked 7th and 8th in rushing yards, while the colts and jaguars were 19th and 20th.  that was down year for the jaguars, the previous year they were top 5
    • People love to prognosticate. My crystal ball broke so I don't have any insight into the future, but Ballard is using particular criteria (data) that has shown to be better predictors than merely guessing. Let's watch to see whether his approach to dealing with the unknown is better than other teams. I think we will be surprised.
    • Remember,  we are not debating whether Spring is doable.   I've stated from the beginning that I agree.    It's not as bad as some here think it is.    It's doable,   No question.   We are debating whether Spring is preferable, or desireable.    So, when you write,  that you don't think you have to say more about an issue,  any issue,  I'm sorry,   but NO!     You DO have to say more.  A heckuva lot more.    Because YOU have the burden of proof.    My position is the Industry Standard.   Your's has, by comparison,  a handful of examples.   Some are recent.   That's great.   But I view that as a nod to the position that it's doable.    You view it as a possibility that it might soon become the norm.   I'm happy to wait until that actually happens.   As to your primary argument.....    that all the prep work has been done,  and if you make the changes in winter,  that the GM is not up to speed on what the current scouts and player personnel people have done.    Except there is this......   Your argument that you yourself use to others here who complain that changing in the spring is bad.   To quote you....   it's just one draft.    One free agency period.    And there will soon be another,  and then another....   and another.   One season is nothing in the grand scheme of things.   That is what you wrote (roughly) to posters who think making the GM change in the spring is outright terrible and stupid.    Which I strongly disagree with their positin.   Your argument makes my argument for me.    I want the new GM in the building ASAP.    So he can sooner evaluate his players.    His front office.    His scouts.    The entire program.   Waiting until May or June just delays that.    I want it to begin ASAP.   I'd expect that he can and would be able to make some level of difference in his first free agency and draft.    Plus,  I think you way, way over-dramatize the handicap the new GM has arriving in January.   He's the GM.    He's already got a ton of information in his head,  and in his notebooks, his binders.    He's not in as much of a bind as you like to portray.     So, with your desired scenario, this draft could be used for a system that the new GM doesn't even want to run.    Like Chuck running a 3-4,  when Ballard wants to run a 4-3.    Like Chuck wanted to run a power running game and a deep pattern passing game.    While Ballard favors a zone running game and a get rid of the ball quick, move the chains offense.     In your preferred scenario,  you're the one who is burning the first year the GM has,  not me.     I see little of the benefits and mostly an approach that screams....   "Gee,  I hope this works out."   By the way,  I didn't want this post to end without addressing one of your main points.   Your paragraph that starts with this:   My Point:  There are always good candidates...   same is true for head coaches and coordinators.    I'm sorry,  but I'm going to STRONGLY disagree with that argument.  And I think you'll retract that.    Every so often you'll see an article about how did the class of GM's from a previous year turn out?   Or head coach hires?    I used to tell posters here who hated Pagano that the class of head coaches that included Chuck,  that all of the other coaches got fired before Chuck.    That Chuck was the best of his class.   And that happens with GM's too.   A class gets hired,  and quite often most of them, sometimes all of them don't work out.   I believe my position has far more facts to back that up.    There isn't always a Sean McVey.  There isn't always a Kyle Shannahan.   There isn't always a Josh McDaniels.   There aren't 32 good GM's, or 32 good head coaches,  or 32 good offensive or defensive coordinators.   That's why so many teams struggle for years to get those spots right.   So, no, I absolutely reject the idea that there are always good candidates.    Sorry.   I know you believe what you're writing.   But honestly, this feels like one big thought experiment. Like you're trying to make a case for something you really don't believe,  but you're trying to see if you can make a good argument anyway.   And yet I know that's NOT the case.    That you really, honestly do believe this.    That's what I find so astonishing.    There's lots of opinion,  and not a lot of evidence to back this up.    As I've said from the get-go....   I think this is doable.    I just don't think it's desireable or preferable.  
    • To your last paragraph....   yes,  I agree that if a GM,  any GM, inherits a bad roster,  then no matter how OK his draft picks may be,   they will likely stick on the roster.   But if you're a GM inheriting a poor team,  and you draft players that are only somewhat better than what you originally had,  then the improvement in the team will only be so good.   Again,  from 4 wis,  to perhaps 6-7.    That wouldn't be bad.    That would be reasonable.   But when you suddenly pop to 10 wins,  including 9 of the last 10 in the regular season,  and you win on the road in the playoffs,   then there's got to be something more there than just the GM's new guys.    Those guys have got to be good.    You can't do that well simply because they're better than the previous guys.    They're much better.    Yes, the coaching staff is better and the systems the team is running are better,  but so are the players.    They have to execute.    And we did.   Better than we thought possible.    Certainly better than when we were 1-5 and looked like a candidate for a top-10 or even a top-5 draft pick.    The players are good.   They may not be great yet,  but they're really good and much better than what we had.    The results are all the proof you need.   Again,  thanks for the exchange....
