I kept thinking this kid's name was familiar and then I recently found out he went to my high school (many years after me, lol) and I watched him play there! I'm all on the Kinlaw train now! I see a lot of love for him here but how many of you would be happy with this pick at 13?

He's one of the premier non-QB prospect that we can reasonably expect to be there for us to pick at 13. I think a lot of people here would be very happy with him as the pick...

Thanks for the video, was just about to pull some up and do a deep dive on him. From what I've read, he seems like a near perfect fit for our scheme

How could we not?  When was the last time we had a premiere DT?  I think he could be that.

I've seen some people on here compare him to Aaron Donald. Surely that's the best possible outcome and realistically just a pipe dream.

He's more Chris Jones than Aaron Donald, IMO... but yeah... he's one of the better 3Tech prospects we've had the chance to draft.

The Colts havent had a premiere DT since before peyton manning. Some would say Booger, but by the time we got him he was past his prime.

I would be really happy with a Chris Jones type player on our line. Not many DTs are able to apply constant pressure and get to the QB and having one is a huge advantage

Some might say Jonathan Hankins, and he was solid, but not exactly an Aaron Donald or Chris Jones.  Now......imagine if we could get TWO of those guys, one via the draft and one via FA.  I might leak a little pee.

Loved Hankins but I get the move after we switched schemes. That's why I keep telling my friends no to Snacks Harrison now that he is available.

I think Ballard truly wants to upgrade this Dline this off season. I see him doing the same thing he did with Nelson and Smith. He will draft DT at 13 and then with one of our 2nd picks he will draft another DT. I could also see him trying to sign Clowny, and resign Sheard. Whichever 2nd pick he doesn't use on DT will be WR imo, while also resigning Funchess. 

 

All of this prediction hinges on what Anthony Castanzo does.

Would love to see Clowney in a Colts uniform. And I think Sheard is gone. Time for one of our young guys to  step into a larger role. Please god let AC decide to stay and resign with us

Sheard has been great with us and hes not really that old. He could easily play at this level for another 3 years.. I think Al Woods walking in FA in 2018 hurt this team, and I think Ballard feels the same way about sheard. He expected someone to step up for Woods and it just never happened. I would rather a guy force sheard out, than to just hand over the reigns to a guy who hasn't proven himself a proper replacement. 

 

I dont see Sheard costing us a lot of money either. There isnt a lot of reasons not to sign him. The dline needs help and I think it woukd be counterproductive to let him walk.

If he doesn't cost us much, I'm all for signing him but I think he would take more of a rotational role with Turay stepping into a larger role. Sheard has been good for us but I don't think letting him walk would be a huge blow.

I see no Aaron Donald comparisons with Kinlaw at all. Geno Atkins is a better comparison.

I’d be okay with that. Sometimes Geno would be the only entertaining to watch on Bengals game day.

    • @Zoltan and The Bucs are on the clock with an hour to go.
    • As a Colt fan I hope Rivers balls out. But I have to be honest, I am skeptical about Rivers. I wanted younger, not older.  Personally I wanted Bridgewater and like his contract much more than what Rivers signed for.   
    • I think your point on Fountain here is pretty important to understanding Ballard's off-season strategy at WR.     Initially, I hoped we'd sign a free agent and use a second round pick (preferably 34)...and now it looks like we'll only address WR thru the draft.   Hilton is still young enough to expect a return to form this year.  Campbell, despite the low reps, is expected to emerge and you have to leave space for that opportunity or he won't grow.  Pascal caught 41 balls for 600+ yards....from Brissett.  It's almost a certainty we'll draft a receiver in the 2nd round.  Four roster spots are pretty much locked in.   Back to Fountain...having 2 years in the program, there is every reason to believe Ballard may prefer Fountain as the 5th receiver over an additional drafted rookie or journeyman vet UFA.  I can still see drafting a second WR this year, but am no longer shocked that we didn't re-sign Funchess or chase other UFA receivers.    Ballard isn't neglecting the position, he's staying the course on development so that the young talent is ready when Hilton departs, and the emergence of Pascal last year was as good or better than anything you could expect from signing a middle tier outside free agent to build a bridge to the rookies.
