Has there been any write up or discussion on this kid? I’ve searched this forum and didn’t see any threads about him. 
 

1. what’s his strengths and weaknesses 

 

2. what’s the chance he sticks?

 

anyone watch film and break him down at all @EastStreet ? 
 

he certainly has the prototype frame for an OT. Just curious as to what the board draft junkies think about him.

He didn't have his own thread, until now. He's been discussed in this thread.

 

Colts gave him a $25k signing bonus, he picked us over 6 other teams that wanted him.

The Colts have had a little success with Canadian players.  But I wouldn't get my hopes up too high.

 

Anyone been long enough to remember the guy who was supposed to be the next great slot receiver?  Or the DE who was a stud in Canada, but couldn't cut it here?  And didn't we also try out a G a few years ago?

 

These guys are projects, and worth a shot since they're so cheap.

I believe East Street is going to do a deep dive on this guy later this week, after completing his analysis of the draft picks. Stay tuned.

I’ve also seen this thread you linked to but not a lot of discussion specifically about him. Maybe there isn’t much out there known about him since he is Canadian. Idk

Hard to forget Austin Collie.

 

Other Canadiaks that played here include:

OG Dan Federkeil, WR Sam Giguere, RB Clifton Dawson, CB Jason David, WR Jerome Pathon, K Mike Vanderjagt,

Most of them (like Collie) played college ball in the US. 

 

Giguere was the guy I was thinking about.  We (I) had great hopes for him.  John Chick was the other one.

There was a running back that brought a lot of Canadian fans to the Colts board too. I don’t remember him but they thought he was the end all be all.

Didn’t Carter also go play in the CFL and then come back to the NFL but didn’t make it or was it vice versa? 
 

didn’t Cam Wake come from the CFL? I know we though Chick was going to end up being our Cam Wake but washed out hard.

We all had high hopes for Carter (I also had high hopes for him at OSU, so double disappointment).  I remember one poster who watched him in Canada and tried to warn us that it wasn't going to work out.

 

In most cases, there's a reason these guys are playing in Canada... Not all of course, there have been a few that made it in the NFL.

Was it Mike Hart? I'm not sure.

I have the feeling there are two distinct questions trying to be answered in this thread. I provided several Canadian-born guys who played for the Colts.

 

I did not look into anyone who played in the CFL because that doesn't make that person a Canadian. For example, Mike Hart and Kenton Keith are both Americans who played in the CFL as well as the NFL, but neither is a Canadian.

 

Now, in order to narrow the search, this running back we're trying to remember....was he born in Canada?

No im pretty sure its Kenton Keith they are talking about. He was a big deal in the CFL for the SK Roughriders and a lot of those fans jumped on the Colts band wagon when he came down.

Not sure if he'll pan out or not. Technique definitely needs work from what I saw, specifically his footwork. But regardless, if you're using nationality, or historic success with a nationality in play evaluation, you're doing it wrong.

I'm going to do a little something on UDFAs after I finish the drafted guys. I got side tracked yesterday with some elderly family that needed help, but working on picks 4-6 right now.

His name was Kenton Keith, he was the most exciting Saskatchewan Roughrider we had ever seen. On a team that was terrible year after year. Keith was the only good player they had. Source? I'm Canadian.

The guard you're thinking of was Ben Heenan. The most successful CFL player the Colts have had was Jerrell Freeman (not Canadian) he was a really good linebacker for a few years.

An interesting note on other Canadian O lineman in the NFL Laurant Duvernay-Tardiff is a French Canadian guard who just won the superbowl with KC. Apparently he is a licensed medical doctor currently working in hospital in Quebec helping fight the pandemic.

The only Canadian born running back I know of was Rueben Mayes. He's actually from my hometown of North Battleford, Saskatchewan. I think he was the rookie of the year back in the early 90's. Played for the Saints IIRC.

Right!  Freeman surprised me (not because he played in Canada) because he played D3 (I think).  I thought he was just camp fodder, but he played well for us.  

 

(Apparently, he needed some help to enhance his performance though)

I mentioned RB Clifton Dawson earlier in this thread, he was born in Scarborough. Here's a fun list.

I think Freeman played 2 years for the Roughriders, I remember watching him recover a fumble in the CFL playoffs which are in November. He was the only player on the field with bare arms. November in Saskatchewan is * cold, he was the only guy not wearing a long sleeve under his equipment. And I'm pretty sure he had a pick 6 in his first game as a Colt. We knew he was going to be good.

I think the Colts line offers a significant advantage for O'Donnel and Pinter.   With a solid line all around (except maybe Glow), If one of them needs to fill in for a couple weeks they can do well due to the supporting cast.

I thought I read that he was a Champion wrestler which would serve him as a offensive lineman.

Also, that he pitched in a Triple A level baseball game.

Has talent, maybe a diamond in the rough as a back-up OT and who knows in 2-3 years?

Has the prerequisite size 6-6, 315.

Remembering that he chose us over 6 other teams means something too.....if he performs with any kind of success in the preseason and gets cut to be put on the PS we will lose him to one of those 6 other teams.....

    • Yep, you know my opinion on QB and your QB in particular. I think he's the precise type that makes you lose tons of time trying to chase after unreachable target because he's at the same time too good to be cheap and too bad to give you competitive advantage in the playoffs. He needs a ton of things to be right for him to play really well and he takes a lot of capspace that in time will make you lose some of the talent elsewhere that makes him and/or the team look better. This is part of what seems to be happening now. You lose some talent(Diggs, Lindval Joseph, Griffen, Waynes, etc.)... IMO you should be targeting on of the top 3 QBs in the draft.   This draft it seems is actually pretty good up top QB-wise... 3 very good prospects, some others might emerge too. The WR class is pretty good too. If you keep Cousins he will need more weapons than Theilen. LB class is good...       
    • I'd be surprised with the committment to the run if we spent much capital on a WR for the 3rd year in a row.  But if they think there is a stud out there, who knows.  Campbell I don't think is" injury prone" necessarily, last weeks hit was just unfortuneate and broken foot is also usually and accident rather than injury proneness whatever that means.  Assuming he's 100% next year, I think they'd be pretty comfortable with the playmaking potential of PC.     I could totally see them pick up a stud TE though with some captal.  I like MAC too and hope he takes away the neccesity of a TE.   But Houston is old too and we probably are really going to need another edge guy.
