40 time was 5.04. that's pretty slow in terms of 40.

doesn't mean he can't run a crisp route and use his body to get open.

"fast" is not a word to describe hale though. he catches and blocks well.

 

besides his vert 33.5, the rest of his measurables at the pro day were pretty bad.

 

Measurables have their place but there's no great measurable for just being a heckuva football player.  Henteges is showing us that on field.  I like him and he very well make Doyle replaceable next year...and I really like Jack but this is a very positive cap development.

I agree on being a heck of a football player. It's been exciting to see him play well, but I'd really like to see him play with the ones, vs the ones. It still really strange to me that he didn't get much PT at Bama. If there's any coach in CFB that's a good judge of talent, it's Saban.

Hentges is Doyle’s replacement. Has everything Jack has plus youth and a non-injured/repaired hip. I would keep the 4 TE’s and shop Travis or see if I could shop Doyle/MAC.

I think we should slow down a bit on Hentges being Jack's replacement. He hasn't played in a regular season NFL game yet and people forget that the tools Jack brings aren't easily replicated. 

 

I could easily see us keeping Ebron, JD, MAC, & Hentges. JD & Ebron are UFA's after this year. If they both stay healthy this year and produce, I feel we will pay both of them. Having quality depth is never a bad thing, especially when it's cheap and on rookie deals. 

 

Then in 2022 maybe we decide to let Ebron or JD go test the market.

 It took Jack 3-4 years to get to HIS high level as a very solid all-around player.
If Hentges is a truly solid blocker, his path to getting to Jack's level could take less time.  
This is a Business we know.

HH was a 4 year kind of guy at Alabama.  A team captain.  SEC battle tested. He is likely more mature than most rookies.

You're right, I was a little over my ski's, I was projecting a bit too much...

    • The Colts have had their fair share of injuries the past few seasons.   Many of these players were either expected to have good/great years, or contribute much more than they did, because of their season being cut short. If there was a single player on the roster right now, whom has had injuries in the past 3 seasons, that you could put imaginary 'bubble wrap' around to guarantee they don't get injured this season, who would it be?   Mine = Kemoko Turay. There are many players i'd want to have a healthy season, Hilton/Campbell/Hooker/ect. But to me, I truly believe if Turay had not had that season ending injury last year, he could have seriously broken out. I am praying for a healthy season for him, because having him on all the passing downs for the season with the rest of the talent we have on the front 7, I think he could have a massive season. He was leading the NFL last season in QB pressures per snap, before he was hurt. Not to mention that he was held so many times, and it was not called.  I mean blatant holding.  Because he is a real issue for O-linemen.  Just so fast, with great bend, and his hand/arm work is stellar since he's been working with Mathis. A full healthy season, I could easily see him getting 10+ sacks.
    • they cant just go from waiver claim to practice squad on another team, he would have to be on their roster a while before they can do that.
    • It will be interesting to see how Watson does without Hopkins. If they won the division again that would show me a lot. Losing Hopkins is a huge blow.
    • That's fair. Watson is mostly due to age, but I think he's finally good enough to lead them to the playoffs. However, they will decline soon with some contracts running out. I see Luck as 32 in football years because I believe he'd be rusty for a year. Just a guess though. I would take Watson too because I feel he's non injury-prone, and that's good for a long-term answer at QB. I would take Luck back in a heartbeat though as long as we didn't have to pay him anything if he retired again.
