Parris Campbell already Impressing

Recommended Posts

People are going to be wondering how he fell to us and got paired up with Luck.

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.

If Cain is also healthy  Luck may get over 60 tds

    • I am one that has no problem with people using stats to help measure a player. I got my degree in Business from IUPUI and had to take rough math classes and a statistic class that was off the chart. Stats are important, I get that. All I have ever said is there are more to rating a player than stats. Leadership is gigantic, at least to me it is, that is not a stat and can't be measured. JB is a great leader. The only 2 stats some seem to keep bringing up in here to say JB struggles or is below average are YPA and total yards passing per game. Every time someone tries to come back and say well he has 15 TD's in 8 games and only 4 INT's it gets ignored by those same people. Those 2 stats are crucial to stat people. If we had a QB that threw a lot of INT's we would stink period. Also another crucial stat is red zone efficiency, JB is great in the red zone.    To me this is just a waste of a post and my last one on it because with some they ignore other facts other than YPA and total yards passing. How can anyone have a reasonable debate with someone when they ignore things like a QB's leadership, that the WR core is average at best, etc.. Even when Hilton has played this season he has been banged up for the most part.   One last thing, it would be one thing if we were losing to bring up JB's yards passing but we are winning. JB isn't costing us any games as of now. If it was costing us games I would buy into some of these posts but it's not. I was listening to the Dan Dakich show earlier and he was saying how some Colts fans do not think JB is any good. He just laughed and said it is because they want a QB that throws for 5000 yards and is flashy. I rarely agree with him but he has a good point here. Some just need to accept JB isn't Andrew Luck and we now have a run 1st offense. I have accepted it because we are winning and as a fan have to accept it because that is the hand we are dealt. The only alternative is, not to watch anymore.
    • Good tidbits. To add - We were gifted a in-the-grasp on a TD throw by Watkins. A healthy Fuller scares me. 
    • The Week 7 meeting: Colts 30 TX 23 Brissett was 26 of 39 for 326 yards passing nd 4 TDs He is 4-0 vs, TX. Hooker & Kenny Moore did not play. TX had 10 penalties for 54 yards. TX were 2 for 5 in the Red Zone. The Colts did not get one first down running the ball. Watson was 23 of 43 for 308 yards. Hopkins caught nine passes. Will Fuller left the game with an injury. What impact if any will the hammering of the Texans have on their game?  The Texans have the Patriots next.
    • We should run all over Carolina, so that's positive. Allen is so inconsistent. He's putting up plenty of yards, but he's been an INT machine at times. If he has a clean game, could be trouble. I was very surprised they beat TN, and stayed close to GB in GB.
    • To some degree it makes sense.  Cain hasn't lived up to the hype (maybe he's not fully healthy) and Campbell is still pretty raw.  I think Campbell started showing very positive strides in the last game he played prior to getting injured.     Early in the season the only true, consistent deep threat we had was TY.  I think if TY is fully healthy, Funchess is fully healthy, and Campbell/Pascal are fully healthy down this last stretch, we'll see more wrinkles (including deep routes) in our offense.
