I left out our two rookie pro bowlers and our rookie starting right tackle.

So who has the biggest jump forward as far as productivity

from their first year?

I think it will be Turay. I think Hines could make a big leap but with Campbell I wonder how many snaps he will get.

Tough vote for me with Turay and Lewis both could explode on the 

defensive line. Hines will make a jump but like Chloe said, there are extra talented mouths to feed on offense.

 

Cain was essentially red shirted last year and Fountain has caught

some attention early this year so both guys are wild cards at this 

point.

Turay or Lewis.  More likely Turay.  

 

I don't understand why he wasn't part of the rotation at the end of the season.

I just think Cain is going to have a "got something to prove " chip on his shoulder .

I think Cain is going to be better than what people are expecting.  I believe it was Kevin Bowen or Holder I listened to who also said Reich had a lot of praise for Fountain during OTAs. But he said Fountain has to contribute on special teams.

Another guy who I want to mention here for a good sophomore campaign may be Jihad Ward.  I think he is going to make some noise at the 3 Tech and I also think he is a good enough athlete to get some sacks of the edge at DE.

He is gonna be good if he can stay on the field.

Well Cain is currently sitting at zero so anything he produces will be considered a huge leap from last year. But considering that's kind of a cop-out answer, I'll go with Turay. He just has unteachable physical tools and more importantly seems to be putting in the work.

I think he could be molded into a decent edge rusher on top of what he does on the interior.

Grover Stewart may be the only tackle on the roster that can't 

play edge.

May be able to play some 3 Tech at some point.  I know he was a big pass rusher from the interior at Albany State.  We shall see what happens.

I'll take 3 from the 2018 class....    all lineman....   all in the 2nd round.

 

Smith, Turay and Lewis.     With Turay perhaps being the most important.   Then Smith and then Lewis.      If those guys can raise their game to be more serious and steady contributors,  then the 2019 Colts will really improve.

 

Here's hoping....

Kemoko Turay - if he's behind Houston, not betting on him. If he moves behind Sheard, then I'd feel better.

 

Tyquan Lewis - if he's really moving inside, I just don't see him playing early downs unless he can put on healthy weight.

 

Nehiem Hines - he'll improve and be a more "planned" part of the O, but we have a lot of weapons.

 

Daurice Fountain - depends where they put him. If they put him at slot or Z, he'll be competing for spot with Rogers. If they put him at X, he'll be competing for a spot with Pascal. I think he stands a better shot vs Pascal.

 

Deon Cain - DC is the front runner IMO. Chip on his shoulder, but we really need a prototype X, and he could be it if he returns to form.

 

Matthew Adams - he's behind Leonard. Going to be hard.

 

Zaire Franklin - he plays SAM, which we don't use that much. And could be competing with Banogu....

turay for me, followed by smith.  i think hines will be used like he was last year

 

lewis should be in the rotation, the rest are going to be low on the depth chart

I voted for Cain, but don't count out Jordan Wilkins.  I know RB is a little crowded, & Mack appears to be the man, but I really like the way Wilkins runs.

I forgot to add Wilkins in the poll, he may be a natural for 

the addition of the stretch play this season.

Fountain all the way! 

I’m going Fountain since he only played in 1 game right? Had 1 pass attempt and dropped it so if he catches 2 balls this year, he is already 200% above his stats last season lol. If Fountain makes it through to final roster, I think he has that chance to show what CB said needed to get unlocked from him over time. 

 

Id make the other option Turay based on his offseason workouts. Sounds like this kid has stayed behind to 100% work on his craft and hone the skill set he has already. 

 

Hines seems to have already had one heck of a output in his first year and the fact that they added in all the new offensive infusions, I can’t see them isolating as much with Hines as the single outlet player. I see Funch, Campbell, Doyle, Cain and others being equally as opportunistic in outlet options. Add in that CB and Reich want to increase the running abilities, and that just screams Hines role gets diminished a bit.

Watching Turay work on dipping his shoulder to better get around the edge was really fun to watch. if he gets really good at that while the LT is Trying to get a hand on him, Oh Boy.

I want to say Turay or Lewis, but Cain and Fountain would be good choices as there wasn't much of a starting spot to go from.

Yeah I took that cop-out haha. But if I hadn't have chose Cain, I would've chosen Turay

I think Cain or Fountain are most likely (voted for Cain) but would love to see Turay or Tyquan take it.

    • Sigh...........   This is beyond really frustrating.    You're accusing me of things I literally haven't done.     That's very Irish of you.    Really annoying.      You ask for benefit of the doubt while never giving it out yourself.   I've put certain things into bold.   I'll try taking them one at a time.   Your first bold...   that this is not me saying that teams that aren't doing this are stupid.    I'm sorry, but when you declare that you've come up that you think is clearly and obvously better,  that you think you've re-invented the wheel and sliced bread,  it certainly feels like you're casting a disapporving eye toward any team that's not doing things your preferred way as a matter of course.   Then you claim,  that I want Ballard in the building ASAP,  but not before January.    Let me see if you understand this word.....   NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!   Was that clear enough for you?       If Irsay had decided in the spring of 16 to fire Grigson and hire Ballard in the spring, I would've been ok with it.   It's not desirable,  but if Irsay made that call THEN,  I'd be ok with it.     Where YOU mis-read me,  is that roughly 95 of owners make this decision during the season.    They see things they don't like and they decide during the season to make a change -- typically when the season ends.    Sometimes, an exec will be fired during the season and someone like Dorsey comes in during the season to oversee things and learn about the organization.    I'm fine with that.  There's no record of me opposing that.   I start with January,  because that's when the business season starts for front office and coaches.   Period.   The NFL views it as preferrable.    But making the switch in the spring is doable, as I've said in every post, and which you have ignored or confused badly.    But if Ballard had been hired in the spring of 16,  I'd have been fine with it.   This isn't the first time I've said some version of this.    This is not some ah-ha moment.   As to the bold declaring that there are tons of qualified guys and that CHOOSING the best guy is another story.   Here's my reponse to that.   No.   nonsense.     They are the same story.    They are connected.    Because you play down the fact that most GM's and most HC's fail.   They get fired before their 4 or 5 year contracts expire.   The owner has seen enough and makes a change.   Saying there are always qualified guys is meaningless.    Because FINDING the best guy who will succeed, isn't just important,  it's EVERYTHING.   All 32 teams can announce they hired a qualified guy.    That isn't hard.    But the vast majority of teams are introducing his successor in a few years.    That's why a franchise like Pittsburgh has very little turnover either in HC or the front office.   While franchises like the Jets or Buffalo or Miami are introducing someone new so often, you can practically set your watch to it.     Generally speaking,  the new GM has a long history of scouting and evaluating talent.   The new HC has a history of success, both as a position coach and a coordinator.   They can easily be called qualified,  (though new guys like Kliff Kingsbury and Zack Taylor do NOT have a long track record of success)  But the vast majority of hires...   are soon enough fired.   That doesn't speak well to their qualifications.      As to you meaning what you're saying...   Of course you mean what you say and I stated that clearly.  I don't know why this should rub you the wrong way.  I literally wrote that I know you mean what you say.    I said what I said as a rhetorical point,  not an attacking point.    My ultimate point was made at the end of my first post to you.   You typically write persuasive arguments.    You're able to frequently made me see your viewpoint.    But not here.    You accuse me of not considering your argument.    I'm sorry,  I am considering what you write.   But I don't see the typical high quality Superman argument.   I don't see points that connect.    Your argument feels like the one you'd make for doable.   It doesn't convince me at all that it's preferable.  
    • Yeah, Ballard said he's a patient guy, and he doesn't mind waiting to pick. We almost traded back from 34 as well if Rock wasn't there. I personally love the "trade back" strategy at the end of round 1, and wouldn't mind doing it in most every draft. A late 1st for a mid-second and early/mid second (from the Redskins) over two drafts is fine with me!
    • Haven't done research on the 2020 draft yet, but if it ends up having an elite WR or OT, I wouldn't mind trading up this year. We'll have to see where we finish (hopefully 32 ), and make a decision from there. Ballard landing the Redskins 2nd rounder may be a brilliant move.
    • I had us 9-7 just based on guessing/hoping/predicting Luck would be healthy and play great. I was right but a lucky guess, I guess  . I thought that would get us a 6th seed. We won 10 games which got us in.
    • For the first time in a while, I am impressed with the Colts development of players. If this current trend continues, a lot of opinions will change.
