We need a dominant TE

Recommended Posts

I know we have more pressing issues but George Kittle went in the fifth round so I hope Ballard can find a gem later in the draft

I hope that Hunter Henry (or Austin Hooper) hits FA. Henry is a perfect fit...and would compliment Doyle nicely. If that doesn't happen...then I agree that that they should be looking to the draft for a TE.

 

It's interesting that Ballard...who came from a team that drafted and developed a 3rd round TE that changed the team's entire offense...has yet to draft a TE out of 29 picks (20 of which occurred in rounds 2-5). Granted Ballard wasn't actually with the team when they scouted and drafted Kelce...but he saw firsthand the impact that he had.

 

I really thought that drafting a TE would be one of his first moves...and Kittle always just struck me as a guy he would go after...but then he didn't.

 

IF the Colts can't get one of the top FAs...I think we just might see Ballard pull the trigger on TE prospects the next couple of drafts to build up the group.

We actually don't.  Jack Doyle is easy to underestimate, he's a do-it-all type TE who's got very clutch hands.

 

We could get away with using him as a TE1 if we had a good run blocker as TE2.  Ideally I would like to upgrade at TE if possible, but it's not a break-the-bank kind of deal IMHO

Kelce, Kittle, Gronk.  The SB teams do seem to have a theme.....

 

The Packers lost badly.  And NO didn't make it very far.  hmmmm.

Sure, but you nailed it op.... There are so many more needs on this team.... They have a solid TE.  They need a WR CORPS, pass rushing DE that can stay healthy, dominant DT, oh, and ideally a upgrade at QB, you need one of those to throw to a dominant TE.... I mean, with a great QB Ebron WAS a dominant TE.... (And no, Stafford isn't great, he's an above average, solid starter)

Mahomes, Garroppolo, and Brady plus those three?  Is the theme that great QBs coupled with great TEs Trump great QBs without them?  Ok.

So we need to fill both positions, right?  Or just one?

Doyle is good but not dominate. I am not saying take one too early imagine a Kelce or Kittle like TE on this team.

Ballard had a pro-bowl TE under contract when he got here (Doyle) and we had a LOT of needs in other areas.  Doesn't surprise me that Ballard looked elsewhere in the draft.

 

Then he signed Ebron before the 2018 season, and I don't think knew Doyle'd miss so much time in 2018.  Again, makes sense.

 

Going into the 2019 season we had a healthy Doyle and Ebron, plus an improving Mo Alie-Cox and some other decent depth at TE.

 

IMO, it makes sense why he hasn't addressed TE through the draft so far.  We had a lot of other needs on the team he inherited.  Going into this season with Ebron coming off a pro-bowl year and Doyle at full health, it would've almost shocked me to see him go TE in the draft.

 

Now, it sounds like we're moving on from Ebron.  If one of the TEs you mentioned becomes a FA, I bet we look seriously at them.  Otherwise, I imagine we take one in the draft.  It went from being a position of strength when Ballard took over to a position where we need to at least add solid depth.  

 

Ebron struggled with drops prior to the 2018 season.  He had a very good year in 2018.  He struggled with drops again last year.  Some may argue he dropped off b/c he had Jacoby instead of Luck, which is probably true to some extent.  However, I'd call the year he didn't have major drop issues more of an anomaly than the norm for Ebron.

Doyle's a very solid blocker.  He's a good possession TE.  He has made clutch first down and short yardage catches.

 

That said, I don't think Doyle has the speed to stretch the field as a TE1.  I could be wrong, but I'd say Doyle is a 'do-it-most' type of TE with the major knock on him being a true TE1 being that he isn't fast or athletic enough to stretch the field and be a serious vertical receiving threat.

I like Kmet... but more and more he's being called the top TE in the draft and all projections I see on him are going mid-late first round.  Highly doubt he's around at 44.

I hate to say this, but I watched him play against Georgia early in the season and thought there couldn't possibly be a better TE in college than him.  Its not surprising he's now being called the top TE in the draft.

Yep, and it's no coincidence that arguably the 2 best TE's in football will be playing in the Super Bowl Feb 2.

One only has to think back to how much Gronk meant to Brady, Clark meant to Manning, or Clark meant to Montana.

Jason Witten, Jimmy Graham, Julius Thomas, Vernon Davis, Heath Miller, Greg Olsen. You know their names because they make big plays.

Randy Moss' son (I think Thad is his first name) announced an early entry into the NFL Draft.

 

Hard to really judge how good he was because he had such a good team at LSU, the best QB in NCAA, the best WR corps in the NCAA, etc...  but from the bit I got to watch him in the college football playoffs/national final, he looks very athletic, comes from a good pedigree and seems to be a better teammate than his dad.

 

A few other guys we have a shot at in rounds 2-3 (or 3-4):

 

Albert Okwuegbunam - Mizzou - 6'5" 255 lbs.  Runs in the 4.6 forty range.  Had 43 receptions in 2018-19 and digressed to 26 receptions this past year (could be a good thing, may drop his stock, though I think he's still got stud potential).

 

Jared Pinckey - Vanderbilt -- 6'4" 260 lbs.. a 4.7 guy, had 50+ receptions as a junior, missed time as as senior and had 20 receptions in 7+ games.  Would be nice if he was slightly faster, but guy is a player and will likely be available in the mid rounds.

 

Colby Parkinson - Standford - 6'7" 251 lbs.  Had 48 receptions last year.  Physical freak with some rawness to his game.  

 

There are another 5-6 guys who look like they can produce in the NFL and will be available in the mid-rounds.  

 

I think we're certainly going to address TE this offseason (especially if we let Ebron walk).  It's probably a good offseason to do so as the draft looks pretty solid at TE and there is possibility of 2-3 FAs being available.

Hentges wasn't really much of a dynamic TE though. I think they saw him as more of a Doyle type.

Pinkney is very interesting. He was rated really high after his junior season.

 

Hopkins is probably the prize, but I think he sneaks into the 1st round if he tests well.

 

I like Breeland as a late Day Two guy...and I love a dice roll on Calcaterra from OU (if he can bulk up).

He only played 9 games as a sophomore.  And he played them on an excruciatingly painful high ankle sprain that he suffered early in the season against Ball State.  He was supposed to be out 4-6 weeks, but made it back in 2.  He also broke his collarbone in camp this year when Alohi Gilman landed on him and a drill.  Kmet made it back by the UGA game and starred in his first appearance of his junior season. 

 

He's an extraordinarily fast healer.  He plays through pain.  He runs through arm tackles/contact.

 

As a junior, Kmet tied the all-time record for TDs by a TE at ND (which is Tight End U - Fasano, Eifert, Rudolph, Niklas, Mack, and now Kmet, just in recent years).  I imagine his production next year would've been record setting with his QB and all 5 OL returning.

 

At the end of the day, I don't think the Colts will even sniff having a shot at him.  Kmet may go in the first round (perhaps to NE). 

 

He's the clear #1 TE in the draft at this point, and the only "weakness" in his game is that he could still develop/get stronger as an inline blocker.

Yes, oddly guys like Pinkney, Okwuegbunam, and McKeon (Michigan) all digressed as receivers last season compared to seasons before.  

 

I think Hopkins can also be a stud, and you're right, he's going to have to test well to move himself up in the draft.

 

A couple small(er) school guys I like are: (1) Harrison Bryant (FAU) who had 61 receptions last year and at 6'5", 240 lbs and a 4.7 forty, he seems like with some NFL coaching could be something special,  (2) Matt Bushman (BYU) had 49 receptions as a sophomore, 29 as a junior, 47 as a senior and has good size at 6'5" 245 lbs and speed (4.7 forty), and (3) Adam Trautman (Dayton) who had 70 receptions and 14 TDs last year and is a 6'6", 250+ lbs guy who runs around a 4.7.

I think the biggest weakness in Kmet's game is his speed.  He's listed as a 4.85 forty.  He's got the size, the strength, the hands and the 'football player' things going for him.. he seems to play faster than that, but it is never easy to judge against college competition compared to the NFL.  Regardless, I think he's gonna be a very good NFL player.  

 

For the Colts, though, with Doyle already in place... I think we'd almost be better off with a faster guy who can almost by a hybrid WR/TE (which Ebron kind of was in year 1 in Indy).

You see what our TE groups looked like with Manning and Luck throwing the ball. Doyle requires a good QB to get him open, or at least let him create something. 
 

Also, while I’m a fan of Doyle, it seems like he goes down too easily. Seeing Kittle drag three guys down field reminded me of why having that dominant type of player on offense is so special and needed.

One guy that hasn’t been mentioned in this thread is Hunter Bryant from Washington. He’s the kind of “receiver first” TE  the Colts are missing right now. Great route runner with hands and speed. And I think he could still be on the Board in the 3rd round. Someone to keep an eye on.

While I agree we could use another TE, I think we'll have to hope to pick up a gem in the later rounds.   On the bright side, that is done by teams quite often.

Based on the dozens of mock drafts I've done this month, Brycen Hopkins seems to be the top TE in this class. He's the first one off the board every time.

Agreed about what the pundits think.  Kmet just seems like a guy BB would take at 28 and become the next all pro.  I'm not a big fan of the one dimensional receiving TE, and Kmet seems like Doyle, only younger, bigger, and a better receiver.  And with his length and long strides, he could get down field quicker than he looks.

Gotcha. I'm basing it totally on what I'm seeing with the player rankings, & I'd be lying if I said I've seen enough of either guy to make that distinction.

Hey guys I don't know if it has be brought to you attention yet, but if we need a dominant TE, we could find it at the FA.
Austin Hooper, who made it to the Pro Bowl this year is FA at the end of the season. It could be a really good fit for us. 
What do you guyw think about it !?

    • It would explain why Ballard is splurging so much this year.
    • The Indianapolis Colts are up and could go several ways at 34 here.   The key here is getting an immediate impact starter.    With the 34th pick in the NFL Draft the Indianapolis Colts select Tee Higgins WR Clemson   He adds great size to our unit and will become Rivers favorite target. 
    • Part of the reason he was a healthy scratch late in the season was because he doesn't play special teams.  When our DBs were all healthy, Milligan, Odum, Geathers and Tell all were playing STs and doing very well there.   “(Wilson’s) role early in the season was good, made a big play in Tennessee, played well vs. Kansas City, then we got healthy all the way through at all of the positions,” Ballard says. “We had five safeties we were dressing and four corners, and then a lot of it came down to special teams. Quincy’s not a core player on teams. Then you add (Rolan) Milligan, who plays on teams, you add (Clayton) Geathers, who plays on teams, you have George Odum, who plays on teams, you had Marvell Tell ascend, who plays on special teams.   “If you are not in that top-3 corner spot, that 4th and 5th corner have to be able to play on (special) teams. That 4th or 5th safety has to be able to play on teams. Those guys were more valuable.” ____________________________________________________________________________________________ Ballard also mentioned a few times during last season that he thought Wilson's struggles were more mental than anything else.  Wilson has ideal physical traits to thrive in Ballard's defense.  Ballard also has expressed a reason he likes Wilson is because he has the traits to switch to S if needed.  The previous year, they said when we had Mike Mitchell that he took Quincy under his wing and really got him practicing hard, taught him how to watch film and prepare like a pro, etc... I'm not sure if his departure is directly related to Quincy's decline or if he had other things going on... but Ballard says after the season he had a long talk w/ Quincy and he believes he had some sort of confidence issue.   “Down the stretch, I think (Wilson’s) confidence got him a little bit down the stretch,” Ballard said. “It’s something Quincy and I talked a long time (after the season) ‘This is it, a big year for you.’ “So it’ll be interesting to see how he comes back, and his mindset, but I think it’ll be good.”   https://www.1075thefan.com/kevins-sports-news/colts/chris-ballard-to-quincy-wilson-this-is-a-big-year/   Above quotes are from the above link, which is an article from last month.  Below quotes are from the below link, which was written in May 2019.   “The thing that is so strong about Quincy and I didn’t even understand this coming out, he’s really football smart,” Ballard says of Wilson. “Right now, he’s playing 5 different spots back there. He will go corner, dime, nickel, little bit of safety. He can play a lot of roles for us.   “He’s going to compete to play corner, but on game day, he becomes very valuable, because he can play man-to-man on tight ends. That’s why having all these longer corners help you from a matchup standpoint.”   **His best game last year was by far against KC when he did a very good job at limiting Kelce (4 catches on 10 targets).   https://www.1075thefan.com/blogs/kevins-corner/colts-coverage/slimmed-down-quincy-wilson-offers-colts-desired-versatility     He's a FA  after this year.  Not sure if you're talking about getting a pick in 2021 or trading him in 2021, but it won't be the later.   And TBH, we didn't have a world class secondary last year and Wilson only play 12% of downs.  He didn't play any defensive snaps after Dec. 8.  The final two months he only played 17 total snaps on defense.  I am somewhat doubtful that a team would even consider giving up a draft pick for him at this point (maybe a 7th?).     Quincy is 3 months younger than Ya-Sin.  I get the impression that Ballard still has high hopes for him.  Hopefully he can get his head on straight.      
    • I had us taking Shenault at 34 and Aiyuk at 44 and tripled down in tje 5th with brcen hopkins..........
    • Don't believe this. Quincy, Carrie and Rhodes will all be FA's next year. Quincy and Carrie are also pretty bad this year if they have to start due to injury. Wouldn't prefer Fulton, but CB's generally take a year or two to learn the position.   It's far from a certainty we take Fulton, but I don't believe the face interview is a smokescreen to throw people off our trail. The interest is probably real, it was with Banogu last year.
