Three Young Colts Players Named to NFL.com’s ‘2020 All-Under-25 Team’

Recommended Posts

   Drafting Braden Smith might be the most underrated move of Ballards tenure so far. Smith came in as a 2nd round rookie who had to change positions and he's been really good.

 

 Nelson is a total beast.

 

I'm looking forward to watching Okereke make a leap forward in year 2.

And let’s not forget that Darius Leonard NEARLY also made thus list.  He’s 24 today and for a few more mo this.

 

But he turns 25 in late July (7/24).

 

Close, but not quite. 
 

The Colts are getting younger, more talented,  and more athletic.  Everything you want thus team to be.

I totally agree they’ll be fun to watch.

I agree, it has definitely been slept on. Starting to get some respect though.

 

Leonard pick is right there with it, but because he gets more pub, I'd agree with Smith.

Hey Leonard came out of nowhere and blew everyone's expectations out of the water and we've all been raving about him ever since, he's a great player. Smith is quietly becoming an above average RT and very few people are even talking about him. I think he deserves more credit.

I think the scouts who watched him in college would beg to differ about him coming out of no-where.

Sure. But a lot of the fans hadn't even heard of him. That's all I'm trying to say.

    • The Colts have had their fair share of injuries the past few seasons.   Many of these players were either expected to have good/great years, or contribute much more than they did, because of their season being cut short. If there was a single player on the roster right now, whom has had injuries in the past 3 seasons, that you could put imaginary 'bubble wrap' around to guarantee they don't get injured this season, who would it be?   Mine = Kemoko Turay. There are many players i'd want to have a healthy season, Hilton/Campbell/Hooker/ect. But to me, I truly believe if Turay had not had that season ending injury last year, he could have seriously broken out. I am praying for a healthy season for him, because having him on all the passing downs for the season with the rest of the talent we have on the front 7, I think he could have a massive season. He was leading the NFL last season in QB pressures per snap, before he was hurt. Not to mention that he was held so many times, and it was not called.  I mean blatant holding.  Because he is a real issue for O-linemen.  Just so fast, with great bend, and his hand/arm work is stellar since he's been working with Mathis. A full healthy season, I could easily see him getting 10+ sacks.
    • they cant just go from waiver claim to practice squad on another team, he would have to be on their roster a while before they can do that.
    • It will be interesting to see how Watson does without Hopkins. If they won the division again that would show me a lot. Losing Hopkins is a huge blow.
    • That's fair. Watson is mostly due to age, but I think he's finally good enough to lead them to the playoffs. However, they will decline soon with some contracts running out. I see Luck as 32 in football years because I believe he'd be rusty for a year. Just a guess though. I would take Watson too because I feel he's non injury-prone, and that's good for a long-term answer at QB. I would take Luck back in a heartbeat though as long as we didn't have to pay him anything if he retired again.
