Colts 2021 Draft Watchlists and Team Fits/ Senior Bowl Week (Merge)


Recommended Posts

Well....    for what it’s worth....   Chris Ballard was at the Northwestern Pro Day.    I know they have other players to consider.   But I don’t see us trading up for Slater, and would CB need to be in attendance for guys who are most likely mid-round picks?

 

So it would appear he was there for...  Newsome.     Hmmm?

Let's do Cosmi 21 Turner 54

Speaking of BYU    

Colts were at Cosmi's Pro Day, where he scored a perfect RAS score  . I predict him to be in consideration at 21

I mean Newsome is good enough where he could make an exception.

Stanford Pro-day today.

 

I imagine there will be a scrum around Walker Little and how he performs.

Paulson Adebo is who I’m looking at.

Walker Little tested solid today. Paulson Adebo tested very well.


Another player I find intriguing is Simi Fehoko. A big almost 6’4 220lbs WR that can run (4.42 40). Kind of your Denzel Mims/Chase Claypool type player). I really want a big speedy downfield playmaker on this team. If Ballard can get a trade back a couple of spots in the 1st to pick up a 3rd, I’m looking at the likes of Nico Collins and Simi Fehoko.

arm length! check. Add him to the CBs the Colts might be interested in. 

He check a lot of boxes, but I'd say he's fairly raw from a technique perspective. He's a converted wideout though, which explains his amazing ball skills.

@danlhart87 your boy crushed his pro day today!

 


If Chris Ballard was given a ball of clay to make a cornerback, this is what he’d look like :)

 

 

 

Pending what they do with Rhodes I would be ok with him at 21

He did well but I don’t think he is 1st round material. At 54 I would love it though.

That depends on them bringing back Rhodes. If they don't I also like Newsome.

Since Rhodes hasn’t been linked to anyone I think Ballard knows next week he can talk with him and TY and get good short term deals done. If not though then yes CB becomes something important for the draft. I still see 21 being the top DE or LT though.

I'm thinking a solid LT will be available at 54 so will probably be DE at 21.

 

I'm pretty confident LT will be a rookie.

I don’t disagree but Ballard knows the importance of the lines and LT is a bigger deal than DE depending on what happens in FA still. Fans need to understand that Ballard likes no name ascending guys that he gets for cheap but can have 3 or 4 guys to rotate and get some sacks. Rochell could be a 7+ sack guy but no one knows. That’s what he likes IMO. Not that he won’t draft anyone.

I’m actually a big Melifonwu fan as well. His North Carolina tape is some of the best I’ve seen from a corner prospect this year. Like you said, he is what Ballard wants his CB’s to look like. He hits all the metrics except he wasn’t a team captain. But academically, he also qualifies as he was All ACC academics Team and a 5 time honor roll member.

Yeah, if I had to guess Newsome is the primary target here. Although... If slater starts falling for some reason...maybe he can make a play for him too.

Love me some Cosmi. Can't see a world where he drops to 54. This draft is so loaded at T.

I must've missed this post, but I just started watching some film on Imatorbhebhe. If we go for a mid-round WR, he should be it. Still a bit raw, but my god, what a physical talent. I honestly see a less polished AJ Brown in play style. Oddly enough, I actually found out after I came to that conclusion that he's actually friends with AJ Brown and DK Metcalf, works out with them, and said he sees himself as a mix between the two of them. 

 

His vertical jump is just silly. He just floats...

Oweh is a tricky evaluation. A rare H/W/S prospect, but it doesn't show up on the tape. I don't know about him, he obviously needs alot of coaching up of his pass rushing moves. Sometimes when I watch him, I kind of think he is one of those guys that is athletically gifted, but his football instincts are slow. Lance Zierlein (who I respect alot as a draft analyst) has him graded higher than Kwity Paye (I think he has Oweh as his top rusher). This is a very intriguing edge rusher class, I bet teams evaluations and rankings are very mixed up at the top.

Not sure this is exhaustive list but it's conspicuous by the absence of Colts personnel at the pro day:

 

 

 

Caleb Farley(who might fall to us because of injury and surgery) and Christian Darrisaw, one of the top OTs in the class, went to Virginia tech and Darrisaw is supposed to work out.

Jaelan Phillips’ RAS. Incredible. And it shows on tape. Jeremiah rates him as the best pure pass rusher in the draft. If it weren’t for the concussions, I reckon there would be a very high chance we draft him. But after passing on Montez Sweat, I don’t think we will use a first round pick. But the upside is massive.

 

 

Philips ran faster than Brevin Jordan lol.

 

Gregory Rousseau’s numbers were as expected too. Great length and size but well below average explosiveness and agility. And it shows on tape too. He’s got poor get off and bend as an ER, but excellent from the interior.

The injury stuff with Phillips is scary (specifically the concussions), but man does he look like an elite edge prospect. 4.56u at his size is crazy. I think that’s what Clowney ran and Phillips is a way better pass rusher.

And it's not just the athleticism. He looks refined with his technique too. I would much rather us draft him than Rousseau if he's cleared medically...

I think Phillips is edge #1 in the class and way better than Rousseau as a prospect. His motor is relentless too.

    • His breakout game came against the Eagles mid way through his rookie season.  Indy was a big underdog that day and killed the Eagles in Philly. 
    • For those that didn't see it, here's the exclusionary flow chart of the surgeries from 1958 - 2016       I count two studies (one with 95 cases, the other with 80, one of which Dr.Parekh was involved in) having a nearly identical average of a 72.5% return to sport rate-   "One previous study investigated RTS and postoperative performance for players who underwent Achilles tendon repair in the NFL. The prior study demonstrated an RTS of 72.5% in 80 NFL athletes. The RTS from this prior study is nearly identical to the results of the present study with an RTS of 72.4% in 95 NFL athletes." "Following Achilles tendon repair, less than 75% of players returned to the NFL. Postoperative career length was 1 season shorter than matched controls. No difference was observed in the number of games per season played com-pared to matched controls. Postoperative performance scores were significantly worse for RBs and LBs compared to preoperative, and LBs had significantly worse postoperative performance when compared to matched controls."   and the very small PARS mini open study at 78%.   I see a trend of some surgeons trying to move from open technique to a limited or mini-open technique (as opposed to a pure percutaneous repair).   Dr. Purekh:   “but the problem with a pure percutaneous solution is that you can’t see anything, so you can actually pierce the nerve.” The miniature-open technique requires only a 3 cm incision while the traditional approach of surgically treating Achilles tendon ruptures required an 8 cm to 12 cm incision. “One of the biggest issues with the traditional model was long-term immobilization, and there was about an 8% to 10% chance of an infection or wound healing problem,” he notes. “The benefit of doing the mini-open technique is that your incisions are much smaller, so your wound complication rate postoperatively is under 1% or 0.5%."   This minimally invasive miniature-open technique is heavily dependent on special tools (PARS Achilles Jig System by Anthrex, Inc.: Naples, FL; Achillon Achilles Tendon Suture System by Integra LifeSciences Corp.: Plainsboro, NJ), and can add in costs up to $800 to 1,000 per use.   Dr. Selene G. Parekh, of Duke University, has pioneered a minimally invasive mini-open technique that does not use specialized equipment, and has adapted the miniature-open technique to require only standard operating room tools, such as surgical clamps and forceps, etc. to be able to grab the Achilles tendon and pass suture.   “You don't have to worry about a special instrument lining up properly in order to grab the tendon, so the whole procedure now takes about 20 to 30 minutes whereas traditionally it took 45 minutes to an hour,” he says.   While mini-open repair is available at Duke (and elsewhere), only Dr. Parekh is performing Achilles repair via this new technique without the need of special instruments.  I'm interested to see what types of improved outcomes become apparent besides the time and cost savings up front.      
    • What did I say?  What did I say?  Didn't I say it was bad luck to change your number?  And it's not like your already behind the eight ball, being from Ohio State.  OMG.  *facepalm*
    • I really like the Vaughn's  kid think he will be a Hakeem knicks type player who can catch in traffic
