Solid backup with good potential to develop potentially to a starter. Has a lot to work on, but a very smart player. At worst he is good depth!

Ran a 4.91 40......holy smokes. Guess he can pull and reach the second level - something Glo struggled with last year.....

I would have preferred SHANE LEMIEUX but hey, will see how this turns out. 

 

I have to say tho, at this point, we should trade up for Bryce Hall. The value here is just insane.

Pinter was a two-time All-State selection as a tight end/defender at South Bend's John Adams High School, but Notre Dame did not come calling for his services. He redshirted for Ball State in 2015 before starting five of 12 games played the following year at tight end (three receptions, 10 yards). Pinter started six of seven games played at tight end as a junior (six receptions, 46 yards, 7.7 average, one touchdown) but was injured on the first play of the game against Central Michigan and missed the rest of the year. Coaches moved Pinter to right tackle for 2018 and he played well enough to earn the team's Dave McClain Leadership Award, named after the former head coach at Ball State and Wisconsin who passed away from heart failure. He completed his career as a first-team All-MAC pick, team Most Outstanding Player, and 12-game starter on the right side.

Seems like a good Haeg replacement as Pinter is suited for both G and T.

Seems like the kid has position flexibility which is what we need after Haeg left

Good to see a fellow Cardinal represent. He was great for Ball State, especially for the running game.

Sounds like a good depth guy who can play every position but center.  He also played some tight end at ball state.  Could be a trick play guy too.  Add him to Paterson who missed last year with the injury and the Colts should have a little depth on the line that’s good.  Could probably use another tackle though.

Provides depth at OG and OT.  Since he has decent speed for an OL and has a TE background, would be a good tackle eligible option on short yardage plays.  

I can imagine that, with Nix, our new big FB, Johnathan Taylor at RB, and WR Pittman split out wide.  Plus he is local boy from Ball St.

ABC says he will play guard or center in the NFL because of his short arms.  They did say he could play some emergency tackle.  They also said he could be developed into a starter and has some nasty to him.  He’s very athletic.  
 

The more I learn about this kid the more I like him.

Louis Riddick just said nothing but good things about Pinter. Said if he had longer arms he would be a great T prospect.

Height: 6-4, Weight: 306

Supreme athlete who played tackle in college. Bound for guard in NFL. Stellar balance, lateral recovery against inside moves. Needs to get stronger. Colts continue to strengthen their elite offensive line. (Chris Trapasso)

Possibly, but I doubt he would last another another 33 picks.  I feel CB is killing it so far.
But we have to how the guys can learn and get involved in a very different NFL season.

From 149 to where? To get who? With who?

 

You trade to get more picks only if you know you can get guys you target at later slots. If a guy you want is there, your next pick is another 33 slots away, and team don't want to trade up (or driving a hard bargain) then you take the guy and move on.

Wasn’t that what they said about Braden Smith..and he is doing ok at RT. If the kid has good feet and technique he can make up for it.

Pinter seems like an athletic and explosive player, who played RT in college, but will have to transition to the inside of the line in the pros because of lack of length. Haven't watched him, but he seems like a good project for a team that trusts its OL coaching:

 

For whatever it's worth PFF has him ranked as their 125th player in the draft:

Pinter is the perfect tackle-guard/center convert for a zone-heavy scheme. He has all the athleticism you could want but just needs to continue to add to his play strength to hold up against NFL defensive tackles.

They even showed video of him catching a touchdown on a trick play.

He’s everything you want in a backup lineman which is what the Colts need.  Could be developed for the future as well as some of the starters contracts come up.

Might motivate Quenton to improve on his pass-catching and rushing skills. :dunno:

Braden Smith was also one of the strongest in that draft class. He's also a couple inches taller than Pinter.

 

Either way, I doubt the Colts intend to pigeon hole him at guard if he shows himself capable of playing tackle. He'll probably be allowed to compete at every position.

 

I like what little I've seen of Pinter. He's a smooth mover and I like his hands.

    • It is incredibly unlikely, I am still hoping that I will be able to get one of the packages but I wont know that until the 24th. 
    • I think Pascal showed last year he is reliable and a playmaker.  Campbell showed flashes, but still has a lot to prove and a need to stay healthy.  TY also needs to stay healthy after two years in a row with nagging injuries.   I'm pretty confident that Pittman is going to be solid, but you're right he needs to prove it before we get too excited.   And yes, interesting with the new PS rules (sounds like we can protect up to 4 players if they don't get claimed after being cut and before being placed on the PS), will be to see if we keep any of our young guys locked up.  I'm also intrigued given no pre-season games or intersquad practices (i.e., our coaching staff/FO will really be the only group of NFL personnel who will have gotten a chance to see the young guys perform against other NFL players).  That may benefit us with a guy like Patmon, and since no other team will have seen him perform, he may have a likelier chance of making it to the PS and being protected than a guy like Dulin who other NFL teams have seen on Sundays.   Anyway, just in TY, Campbell, Pascal and Pittman I am a lot more confident with our top 4 than I was going into any year since Reggie got hurt.    
    • As always, highlights are highlights. That said, he has an impressive burst, a knack for knowing when to move on from the blocking call, and a serious nose for more yards after contact. He has a lot of MJD in his game. 
    • He is a whole different order of threat than Mack.  I'll be very surprised if teams aren't focusing him by week 4 or so.  And if it wasn't for Mack I'd say he's a real good bet for ROY.  Still might be even with Mack sharing carries.
