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.....

Montreal drafted him in the CFL so technically 7

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.

He has all the size and weight of a really nice shaped OT. The problem he has is the short arms they have cited multiple times. In the Ball State circuit, he can get away with that, not in the NFL most likely. 
 

im not an expert on what makes OT’s valuable and not even sure where his arm length ranks vs others but it would seemingly be a concern for him to take over on the outside and protecting your QB. I’m going to go look up some arm lengths now. 
 

edit: I was mistaking O’Donnell arms for Pinter. My mistake. I can’t find info on O’Donnell’s measurables.

Oh wow, those are short arms as well. I was looking at a couple of the top draft picks and they were all above 34” eeeks!!

Braden Smith has 32 1/4 arms and is doing just fine at RT... sure longer arms would be ideal, but overall athleticism is a much better predictor for NFL success than arm length.

On the other end of the spectrum. La'raven Clark has 36" 1/4 arms.

And doesn’t know how to use them very well.  Trade arms lol

It would be great if he could put it all together. He has the tools.

I agree. He had everything in an OT you could want except the talent to use it all together. Not sure if it’s desire, lack of commitment or just not talented enough to use all the gifts he was created with. I’m hopeful we can get him to realize all those gifts he has and puts them together.

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.

Kenton Keith? Or something like that. I remember that dude. Was actually a good runner. Struggled in other areas.

How does that work? Correct me if I'm wrong..If a player is put on practice squad by "Team A" and another team "Team B" is interested in signing that player, does  "Team A" have the opportunity to bring that player to active roster first? This and the waiver process has always confused me

The player can deny the claim, I don't believe the team that owns his current rights has any say in the matter.

    • 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.     But Houston is old too and we probably are really going to need another edge guy.
    • How is Togiai fitting in with the team?

    • Unfortunately there hasn't been much meaningful college football so far so my watching has been limited too.    From limited watching this year and some from last year, here are the QBs: - Trevor Lawrence is looking like a complete beast early in the season... true, it's against bad competition, but even then you can see him making some awesome NFL type throws with accuracy, anticipation and great arm talent. I think he will be amazing in the league.  - Trey Lance - very intriguing dual-threat QB from North Dakota State. Had 28 passing TDs and 0INT last year in his redshirt freshman season and ran for over 1000 yards and 10+ more rushing TDs. He might not play this year because of COVID. Interesting to see how that affects his stock in the draft. -Justin Fields - another dual threat QB, who had great year last year. He's showing more than just athleticism too - he has the arm talent to win not just by running but also by passing the ball - there is some hype for Brock Purdy... I watched his first game this season... wasn't impressed. IMO he's not a 1st round QB based on what I saw, BUT it's possible it was just a weird game, so I will have to watch more to be sure. -Jamie Newman - he opted out of this season after transfering to Georgia... so... I will have to go back to last year's tape to watch him more intently.   OT: Penei Sewell - best OT coming into the draft last several years. Looks great. Prototypical size, lenght, athleticism...great technique. He has it all IMO. DL: Gregory Rousseau(DE), raw but very athletic edge rusher.... Marvin Wilson - interior lineman with some pass-rush upside, Kwity Paye - another EDGE with insane athleticism... there are some reports that he ran the 3 cone in 6.36... this is madness if true - it would rank 2nd all time in the drill... this is for all positions and he's an EDGE who's listed at 6'4" 272lbs. 
    • Does Blake Bortles facts make a comeback?     Also my wife and I have just started binge watching this comedy called "The Good Place" and one of the characters is a really dumb Jags fan and he is always playing up Bortles as some great player.  It's hilarious.
