I love the rock and Campbell battles so far. Once Luck starts actually throwing to Campbell we will really see what they are both made of. 

Snips and snails and puppy dog tails.

This is from yesterday. I know it’s early but I think Franklin and Adams are going to be gone.

This could be another great draft class IMO. Sounds like good news early, exactly what we wanted to hear from the rookies. Especially excited about Rock and Campbell.

Still need ST players, so maybe they're not gone. They could be moved down to 3rd string

Somebody suggested that Cain might turn out to be better than DEVIN FUNCHESS. Have you ever heard such crazy hype? Better than FUNCHESS???  Better than the Devin Funchess? That is insane, impossible, and an insult to the possibility that Funchess could be pretty good, probably not great, but pretty good playing with Andrew Luck. I believe this poster was also implying, if you can believe it, that Cain could be better than Rogers, Fountain, Pascal, and even Marcus Freakin Johnson. If you're going to say that, it is the SAME thing as calling Cain a first ballot Hall of Famer. 

 

Not even close. Did you watch Funchess play last year? I did, he wasn't that good. So it's not hard to believe that Cain can compete that level of play. Marcus Johnson had 6 receptions for 100 yards over 5 games before he was injured. So just as much hype there. Fountain...come on. Dropped his only target that was uncontested. 

 

So Ya, its not hard to think Cain could take the 4th spot.

I can see great things from Cain if he is back at 100%

I don’t give a rip about how funchess played last year. He has a better QB and coaches that will use him the right way.

  I guess that means Matt Cassel is a better QB than Andrew because he has been to SBs

I loved Campbell coming out.  My brother in law is a Titans fan and I raved bout him.  Don't b surprised if he gets a ton of reps.  Just him being on the field with Hilton will dictate coverages

I'll say no way Adams gets cut, maybe Franklin. Leonard, Okereke, Adams start, Banogu, Walker, Franklin, Moore, Speed, and Thomas battle for backup position.

Someone is going to have A pro bowl year if walker is battling for a spot. I doubt that is happening. I do think he will use Banogu and Okereke in some special schemes he designs up.

I think a lot of fans are going to be surprised how good Banogu turns out to be in our defense.  I think by year end he will be more feared than Justin Houston by opposing offenses.  Ballard and Eberflus have big plans for that guy. 

 

 

On topic:  Glad to hear the positive buzz around Parris.  He is having a strong camp thus far.  I’m also encouraged to hear that Rock Ya-Sin was covering him a few times and was hanging stride for stride with him.  Good signs.

I was mainly targeting the speed guys but Doyle is definitely 

a weapon.

I think Doyle is second to Hilton as the most important guy to have healthy all season.  He's just too versatile and productive to be without to get the most out of our offense I think.

I agree. It will take awhile. But I think they will use him in special schemes. I can see him on the field with Walker and Leonard. He has a high football IQ when you hear him talk. Put that with his athletic traits he could be special.  I don’t see him taking walkers spot but used differently.

@stitches I think the most interesting thing is the difference in "takes"  one suggested it was a bad throw, and the other suggested it was a necessary throw away.   Subtle, but opposite.

Really wish they had a chance to catch some of Luck's tosses. 

I get we need to grade out QBs, just hate that WRs who are trying to make the team might have to rely on mediocre QB play.

Correct. I exaggerated the excitement people have for Cain to make a small dent in the over the top claims people are making about a seriously injured rookie being a stud. No more no less. Tongue in cheek, not sarcasm. Although their might be a fine line between them. Some would say flippant. Who cares really....

So you're faith in Funchess' success is as grounded in speculation as mine is.

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.

 

Agreed.... a lot of WR's who come from Urban Meyer systems are very hard to predict in the NFL.  Parris Campbell was more productive his last two years at OSU than Michael Thomas (New Orleans Saints).  Thomas is now a first-team All-Pro.

 

Reich and others have all said Campbell's route running at the combine was very good.  David Carr said on NFL Network after round two that when he was at the combine, Parris Campbell stood out as one of the best route runners there and called him the steal of the draft.

You can add Doyle to the list.

 

As much as I hope Doyle comes back 100% healthy, I have my doubts for now.  Hip injuries are no joke, especially when you're as big as Doyle and are required to do his job on a daily basis.

If he does it will be due to injury’s, I don’t expect him to come in and learn the defense as fast as the vets. I’m sure he will make an impact situationally but I don’t see him starting at all this season unless there is an injury to Geathers. 

 

I think we'll see Willis and Geathers on the field together quite a bit.  Willis is a bit better of a pass defender than Geathers (IMO).... I really expect Geathers to be used fairly often as a hybrid LB/dime package guy with Willis playing along side Hooker behind Geathers.

Met some guy on Twitter  that compared Dorsett to Campbell, but the only similarity  I see is speed. Campbell is more elusive than dorsett

 

I don't even think it's close other than they both ran sub 4.4 forties.  Campbell is bigger, faster, more athletic, better run after catch, and seems more motivated than Dorsett.  As the StampedeBlue article that was shared about the two (which was posted earlier in this thread) points out, we also have a more offensive-minded head coach who seems to be more creative on offense.  I think we're going to be much more presently surprised with Campbell than we were with Dorsett (who was really more of a disappointment).

I think there is a lot more to Inman being a free agent.  Inman has said publicly on numerous occassions that he wanted to be back in Indy (e.g., https://www.colts.com/news/dontrelle-inman-provided-colts-a-spark-hopes-to-be-back-in-2019).

 

I appreciate what Inman did for us last year and thought he had a pretty good year and helped us out when we had some injury issues and lack of depth at WR last year.  He also had some familiarity with our OC Sirriani.  

 

However, over the course of his career, Inman has not done a whole lot in terms of production.  He is also on the wrong side of 30 and last year was probably his 2nd best season (with 28 receptions in 9 games).  My thought with Inman is he is probably trying to get paid and is over-valuing himself.  

 

If TY, Funchess, Campbell all stay healthy, I doubt Inman would really be seeing much on the field.  A fully healthy Cain further limits his chance of getting on the field.... I tend to think Inman is requesting too much for how valuable he actually is.

Can the season start already please?  Campbell is just flat out professional in his demeanor, and humble in how awestruck he was at Luck and his first day around the facility.  And just impresses the heck out of you just listening to him.

would be great to have Inman back, but he's at the point in his career where he can make the most he's ever made.  Can't blame him for going for it.  Just hope his agent isn't over-pricing.  It's a double-edged sword..... you have the andrew luck factor generating some of that production....so that's hard thing to quantify

Idk man I saw like a 20 minute video of Banogu's plays against Texas? Or some college team I forgot. But he looked like butt. No hustle, went in one direction every time even though the play unfolded in another direction, let his blocker basically hold him as long as he wanted. I even saw a few plays where he pretended to extend his arms out for a tackle on a RB but it was flat out obvious he wanted no part of it... I really do not like the Banogu pick. Gonna be another Basham situation. This is just my opinion though. My body is ready for the backlash.

This is good news for the Colts DB's.

 

Opposing WR's (in games) will seem slow compared to guarding Campbell/TY (in practice).

    • Thanks.    Good read.    But sad read.   I'd say,  he's come to the right franchise.   I think the front office, the coaching staff and his teammates will take good care of him.    And I think we will use him right.   We will play to his strength.   Hopefully,  Funchess will turn into Ebron 2.0.   Thanks for linking this.....  
    • I'm not 100% convinced it was either work ethic, or that it was well known.   What I recall is more of a sense that Turay had hit the famous Rookie Wall.     I don't recall reading articles that talked about Turay and a lack of worth ethic.   Where as, when Wilson had trouble,  there were all sorts of articles.     We had four different articles.    From the GM,  from the HC,  from the DC and from the player.    (And still,  there were people here who would not accept that view).     But at least,  it was written about.   Am I misremembering?   Were there articles written where Turay's work ethich was talked about and I missed them?    I don't even recall threads that talked about Turay's work ethic.   Anyone?     Anyone at all?  
    • I just keep on scrolling past the *s who think we should let AC walk because ''he's too old''
    • I agree. I hope it was just him having to learn to be a pro. Kind of the same situation as Wilson. What I like about Banagu it seems he already has that in him. He said he will do anything just to get on the field. Houston hopefully will be a good example for both.
    • I really liked what I seen in the short time from Turay. My fear though, if he had to be motivated to work, what will happen if he explodes for the next few years, gets the big contract and then relaxes? It has to be a desired trait to want to be the best at all costs, not told to do it. My best hope is that he was such a stud at his previous level that he just thought he could half butt it and he got the message and goes on to have an outstanding career here. I’m excited to see what he does this year regardless. He could be better than Mathis.
