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.

    • Unitas wore #19 for the Chargers.  
    • If Pittman and Wentz have bad blood isnt it kind of odd for them to be hanging out in California throwing the ball around? The answer is:  No bad blood exists, its just the media cooking up drama for some clicks.  
    • Yeah, I addressed the TE is the "cons" section. I just couldn't address it beyond finding a good developmental TE in the draft. There was just too much to address to do it all, and I was able to justify not making any significant improvements by the acquisition of Godwin.    Though I do acknowledge getting Godwin is wishful thinking. Probably not gonna happen, but I also don't yet buy the narrative that Tampa is going to he able to keep all these guys and Godwin knows he would be due a big payday. But yeah, he most likely will be tagged.
    • Totally makes sense to address LT in the draft and Pass rush in free agency.... Also a rumor floating around than Von Miller might be either on the trade block or a surprise cap casualty cut. I'd be shocked if it did happen, but even if there is a remotely tiny chance that he is available i'd hope to god that we at least investigated it.... Von Miller on that D-Line with Buckner as well..... look out.
