and no playmakers signed in free agency

 

Playmakers will likely come in the draft.   Like they did last year with Pittman, Taylor and Blackman.

His concussions concern EVERYBODY!!

 

The next person who claims the concussions don’t concern them will officially be the first.  
 

The concussions don't concern me.  It's the head trauma that I find troubling.  :D

Any chance Levi Onwuzurike can play 43 DE?

The Lindy's guide says he played DE in college, but he's got some lateral agility issues that could limit his pass rush effectiveness.  In effect, potentially a Tyquan Lewis clone?

@chad72

 

You had Colts drafting Onwuzurike in Gavin mock.  Anything you would like to add?

And as far as Ohio State perhaps they are looking at Baron Browning to replace Walker.

Canes fan here.  Watching the Canes pro day on ACCN. 

- Rousseau just ran 4.68 on his 2nd run, ridiculous hand size 11inch and wingspan 83inches

- Phillips 4.56 is the official time, 36 inch vert, 4.12 short shuttle, 10-5 broad jump

- Jordan 4.64

 

 

I think there is a significant chance, one of the 3 will be a Colt

 

We need a 3 down DE

We need a pass catching TE

 

They each have a high ceiling but risks with each

Your easy to please.... :D

He really is lol.  If you ask me, and no one has of course, I think Ballard is now focused on getting some extensions done.  I think Houston is just a matter of time.  So I'm expecting a few extensions to get done before the draft.

I'm a bit surprised by his arm length (or lack thereof).

Yeah that was surprising. Interesting too, because length is usually very high on their priority list when it comes to drafting. 

 

I kind of think it might have been more to have a look at Tremble. With Reich being there too, he's the one who has the obsession with TEs and how he likes to use them.

Former Colt Austin Blythe is now a Chief

 

He was drafted by us and started at center for Rams, and now is with the Chiefs. Good solid signing for them, IMO.

I always liked him as an athlete coming out of Maryland. He can play both corner and safety. Dont know how we will use him. Probably at safety but who knows.

I was a huge fan of his going into the draft. I think he is a good safety/dime back. He can also help with coverage on plays as a safety/linebacker type.

I'm assuming they're there to check out Rashod Bateman and maybe even CB Benjamin St-Juste (6'3" 200lb with 32" arms).

    • Because I’ve been a Colts fan for a long time and Jim Irsay has never had an issue spending money.  Ballard has also said over and over again he was saving his money to pay his own.  This isn’t breaking news.  So rather buy into some idea that he was fine with spending money under Tobin, Polian, and Grigson but is no longer fine with spending money under Ballard just doesn’t add up when you look at his history and what Ballard said.  It’s much more logical to assume that’s he’s spending what Ballard wants like he has with his previous GMs especially when the GM tells you he doesn’t believe in splash free agents and is saving his money to sign his own.   Irsay doesn’t negotiate the contracts.  Ballard does so contract structuring is done by Ballard and Ballard has done it in away to give him cap flexibility that is going to allow him to keep guys like Nelson, Leonard, Smith and others over the next couple of years.    Also Jim Irsay is worth 3 billion dollars he’s not hurting for money.   You want to see an organization that doesn’t want to spend money look across town where Simon won’t even let the Pacers look at the luxury tax.  That’s an owner who doesn’t want to spend.
    • I’m not sure why you find it hard to accept that the Colts may have cash flow problems?  Not that they can’t manage them, but still….   Irsay is one of the few owners who doesn’t have any other source of big income.   No high tech company.  No real estate development.   No oil and gas.   His wealth is owning the Colts.   That’s it.    Sure he may he may spend money, but these last five years he now uses a pay-go system that lends itself to managing money.  We used to give bigger SB’s under Grigson.   Now,  we give either small or no signing bonuses.   Very few teams do that.  And we’re a very small market franchise.   You weren’t the least bit surprised to see DeForest Buckner accept a ZERO signing bonus?   I sure was.     Point of clarification:  none of what I’ve written is proof of anything.   But I think it’s at least worth considering, and you seem completely unwilling to even do that.  I confess find that surprising. 
    • Just because they had money left over doesn’t mean Irsay had a problem spending it had Ballard wanted too.  It doesn’t take that hard of a look back at Irsay’s history of owner to see he has zero problem spending what his GM wants to spend.  
    • That's not exactly true if you consider cap space left over. IIRC, we had the most unspent or near most unspent over a 3-4 year period just recently (IIRC, 16, 17, 18, 19). Pretty sure we had 40+M unspent two years in a row.   IIRC, we carried over the most in the league again this year at around 30M.   It was also speculated that we 1) didn't ask Luck for money back, AND 2) gave JB such a big raise, was because we would have been too far under the 89% rule had we not done both 1 and 2.     
    • Regardless Irsay has never been shy about spending to make the Colts better.  So either way the first point that started all this is irrelevant.
