The Colts wouldn't have a pick til Round 4

Von Miller had a lot of sacks out of a 4-3 front his first few years in Denver. No one even questioned if he could play with his hand in the dirt. 

Did you know Miller played both 4-3 and 3-4 at TAMU, so it's not like he was a pure 3-4 OLB coming into the league. He was also a specialist the first few years.

I don’t watch highlight tapes. I watch the entire game on players. I posted the highlight for those who might not like watching full games. I even said so when I posted it. 

If you watched the Bama tape (there is a youtube with every one of his snaps), you'll know he was not very impressive vs a good, not great, Leatherwood. He had a PD IIRC, but was pretty ineffective in other areas.

Ojulari made a lot of nice plays in a 4-3 front, with his hand in the dirt. I am not worried one bit about his weight. He can bend, and he gets off the ball extremely quick. He has great hand-fighting ability. Some of what he has can he taught, some of it cannot be taught. 

One of the digs on him is he is not that bendy.....

He will probably play anywhere from 250-260 in the NFL. Again, I am not worried about his weight. I see traits that equate to him excelling from a 9 technique in a 4-3. 
 

Everyone has a right to their opinion. If anyone thinks that Ojulari is only a 3-4 Outside Linebacker, then I am probably not convincing them otherwise. 

You're correct. Again, not saying it's impossible for him to play in a 4-3, it's just that the odds are poorer he'll be a 3 down guy in that scheme. He can be a specialist all day though. That's not what most want. And our scheme is a conservative 4-3, which is even more a poor fit.

I am very aware of what Von Miller played and where he is from.

 

I have watched Ojulari’s tape. He is bendy enough. And the rest is your opinion. And I obviously do not agree with you.

And that's perfectly okay having a different opinion and perspective 

 

I think personally Azeez will go anywhere from 11 to 31 

 

He definitely has the traits to be successful in the right scheme

 

Who the Colts take depends how the board falls

 

If they feel Azeez is great enough at 21 then he's a possibile option

It seems like you have your mind made up that we can't think for ourselves which is disappointing because how can we even talk about Ojulari, if you are not willing to have a conversation. 

 

If Ojulari is first edge off the board and kicks butt as a 4-3 DE, you were right and good on you, I remember I really wanted the Colts to Draft Fred Warner because I thought he was gonna be a steal and then the 49ers drafted him in the 3rd round. I was right he is a beast just like Leonard and I can only imagine if we had Warner at MLB and Leonard.

 

Personally I haven't seen Ojulari play or read much about him, but from what you have said I don't see him lasting to the Colts, and that a team that runs a hybrid defense will target him because he sounds like a perfect fit for them. As for if the Colts have the opportunity to draft him, I would say I would prefer us drafting a different position like OT but it depends on who is all available.


I wanted Warner as well. Couldn’t even imagine him and Leonard together.

Do you think oujalri makes it to 21?  Would you trade up for him?  I was all in in Harold Landry an oujalri sounds more athletic.  

 

I’ll check out Lombardi.  Polian has a great podcast on each position which I recommend.  Olbs are in the next one so I’ll make sure to pay attention to oujalri. 


Thanks for that tip! I listened to Polian’s podcast tonight. 

 

And what do you know, it’s almost like he is saying the exact same thing about Ojulari that I am. It’s almost word-for-word what I’ve been saying. What can I say, he taught me well! 
 

I doubt this will change anyone’s opinion, because it’s hard to undo the brainwashing of some people, but anyone can fast forward to 1:16:20 and get his take. 
 

I am sure people will attack Polian for his beliefs about Ojulari too.

So... Now you’re saying Ojulari can play DE in a 4-3? You’ve come a long way since posting pictures of a baby putting blocks in the wrong holes. Just think how this conversation might have gone had you not done that.

People can disagree all they want. They don’t need to be so condescending though. Especially when they are completely wrong about Ojulari by saying he is too light to put his hand in the dirt. 
 

I believe I’ve made my case and a former two time Executive of the Year, and Hall of Famer agrees with me. Almost word-for-word agrees with me.

Define specialist., I can't find his 2011 snap counts, but he played 89% of defensive snaps in Year 2, and my memory says he was basically an every down player by the middle of his first season. But to the point, he wasn't just a down lineman, he was more of a hybrid player.

 

Still, I think the DE/OLB debate is overblown most of the time. I think his size is fine. This is not Leonard Floyd or Randy Gregory, narrow guys who probably played at or below 230 pounds in college, and got drafted at 22/23 years old. Ojulari will be 21, and he measured at 249. He's not spindly, he's solid. He could play NFL DE at his size and weight right now, and he has the frame to get a little bigger if needed. He has good length, and he's strong.

 

But the players traits are most important to me. HWS, his tools, technique, and the other things that are necessary for an edge rusher in the NFL, those are the factors that matter. Not whether he played from a two point stance or a three point stance in college. 

 

I've watched a little of Ojulari. I think he fits our defense just fine because, IMO, he has the needed traits to play NFL DE.

Superman and I have traveled a few similar roads before, and this time I am going to take the advice he once gave me... The high road. 
 

No one knows what Ballard and the Colts scouts have planned for Thursday night. We are all Colts fans. Let’s enjoy the draft. 
 

We might take Ojulari, any of the top LT’s, trade up or back, take a linebacker, receiver (queue the Grigson jokes), or any other position. 
 

I am looking forward to the draft! :)

I don't agree but as we have seen tonight some do.

 

And I know Grigson gets flack but DeVonta Smith somehow by miracle fell i would be ok taking him too.

 

I personally think Ballard has 3 main guys Paye Newsome and Jenkins and if they're gone he will trade down

If DeVonta Smith falls to the teens, we might just move up and get him. I don’t believe the mock drafts that say he will fall though. :)

Folks keep saying he (Miller) played 4-3 DE in 2011 when Denver switched DCs, but he played all over the place. He was actually listed as SLB for Denver. When I say specialist, I mean he was a non-typical 4-3 LB, whom even though was listed as SLB officially, was a lined up as DE or blitzing LB in obvious passing situations.

 

Here's film from the 2011 game vs Miami. I've tagged the time they list starting front 7. Miller is listed as an SAM/SLB in the 4-3.

That's what I was getting at. Not a pass rush specialist who only played 60% of defensive snaps... Got it. 

 

I'd be fine with a player like that in our defense, by the way. Not sure the team would employ a player like that.

I probably should have used hybrid or gimmick instead of specialist. My point was, he simply wasn't a "DE" even though he rushed/blitzed a lot.

 

IF we used a SAM that way, I'd be OK with it. We only use one like 25-30% of the time. And Denver's D through all those days was somewhat exotic and blitz happy. We are not like that at all. We're about as conservative and vanilla as a 4-3 can be.

 

Like I said previously, not saying it's impossible for him to play DE. I'm saying he's a bad fit for the Colts if we are looking for a true 3 down DE. Take a look at the film (all the film, not just highlights) from his game vs Bama. It was against a good, not great LT (Leatherwood). No sacks, but did have a PD IIRC. The concerns I would have was edge setting in non-pass rush downs, and his film looks to be very meh in that area. I just don't want a guy that's purely a situational pass rusher. 

 

I wonder sometimes if the Colts wanted to use Banogu that way (like Denver), with the SAM as an every down position that blitzed a lot. Never happened, and just not sure that's what they were thinking anyway.

 

I'm all for changing up our D by the way. I think we're overrated in the pass D category by a lot.

Depends on who's doing the rating. I feel the pass defense is below average, with a decent ability to get turnovers. I think we could stand to bring some more pressure, but mostly I think the coverages weren't executed well on a consistent basis. And if we can't generate consistent pressure with four rushers, good QBs are going to eat us up.

 

We do a lot of different things in the run game. I'm not worried about an edge who isn't great setting the edge, but I also think that's something a player improves upon with coaching. The traits are there.

We were great vs the run, even playing mostly nickel. Now were down two DEs that were pretty decent vs the run, and a LB that was really good (100 Ts / year) in Walker. 

 

IMO, we're going to take a step back this season vs the run. 

 

As far a the pass D, I think it's vanilla pass rush (lack of blitzing and stunting) combined with super soft zone, more than guys playing poorly. I think S play vs the pass will be a weakness, even more than last year. 

 

I do agree coverages may not have been executed well, but I also think the complexity of more rip/liz stuff might be to blame. All the LBs took on more responsibility it seemed, and most dropped in pass D grades. Only Rhodes and Willis (who is likely asked to do least) took steps forward in grades IIRC. 

 

Give me more blitzing (at least up to league median) and a coverage scheme that lets players play, and is not overly complex.

Irsay seemed to agree with you this when talking about the coverages as he said he felt they needed three stud corners and they had two (I am assuming he means Moore and Rhodes) but they need a third.  Don’t sleep on a CB coming off the board at 21.  Making the QB hold the ball because no one is open is another way to help the pass rush.

Im not going to attack Polian bc i knew hed be more than okay with him. Him and Dungy didnt really harp on the size of edge players that much as long as they could put an adequate amount of pressure on the pocket. But in saying that we usually gave up something in terms of run defense and our ability to set the edge.

Yeah, it's not my preferred way to address the rush, but it's an easier approach than adding stud edge rushers. And really, Rhodes is on another one year deal and will be 32 in 2022, so he needs to be replaced. Even if Rock turns into a really good player, we need more at corner. Tell and Rogers are in the mix, but Rogers can't play on the boundary. So CB should be in the mix.

 

However, I don't take Irsay's comments as an indicator of what they do at #21. I just felt it was a comment on the state of the roster. And I think there are a lot of toolsy corner prospects in the draft, so adding one on Day 2 or 3 is an option as well.

I'm thinking Shaun Wade on Day 3 could be a good addition. He excelled as a nickel corner in 2019, would be great depth behind Moore. He played bad on the outside this last year, but he was one of the players that initially opted out, then rejoined. Basically I think he could be a low risk, high reward player especially if he is going round 4/5

I just feel that most pass rushers employed nowadays don't play the entire series, they come off for several downs. If the high end traits allow us to employ a first rounder for 2 out of the 3 downs and get high level production out of him, I will be happy with it. 

 

Yes, stamina and conditioning wise, we want them for the possibility of 3 downs if the opposition goes no huddle but you have to draft with the traits and upside in mind.

I’m guessing Rogers, the little corner we took from UMASS last year in the 6th,  is our backup for Moore.   Certainly size-wise.  
 

But I still like Wade as a Day 3 pick with upside.

    • If we win out (11 – 6), we still need help: Titans lose 3 games (we win division) or three of the following happen (we are a wild-card): 1. Bills lose 2 games or NE loses 1 other game. 2. Ravens lose 4 games or Bengals lose 3 games. 3. Raiders lose another game 4. Chargers lose 2 games 5. Broncos lose 2 games.      
    • I'm still trying to figure out the story about AB and the girlfriend in the story!
    • but the fact they still ran it 30 times shows they maintained balance throughout the game, which is all we've been asking frank to do.  they didn't go almost a quarter and a half without a rushing attempt.  they kept the bucs defense honest and prevented their pass rush from just pinning their ears back and going after the QB.   and the 30 rushing attempts did more to wear down the Bucs Defense than if they'd gone all out pass
    • that's a really cherry picked, "but what if..." lol.  quite a reach to try to keep defending your position.   I mean...agree to disgree I guess but anyone who's watched even a decent amount of football should know that going all out pass, no rushing at all, makes the team more susceptible to sacks and turnovers.  
    • Our defense hasn’t been great this year but football is symbiotic. The offense, defense, and special teams all have to compliment each other.  Last game the offense & special teams kept turning the ball over.  Sure the defense has to get some stops after those turnovers but the other 2 phases also have to stop turning it over.  I also remember our D stopping Brady 3 & out when we were down 4 to keep us in the game.  Then muffed punt.  Then they still went right back out and held the Bucs to 3 on a short field when a TD would’ve probably ended the game.  They gave our offense another chance to get their shot together. And they finally did by giving the ball to our MVP.     And remember the offense’s job is to score points not just to get yards (yes all the yards from those however many straight 2nd half passes were irrelevant because we never scored on those drives).  Only turnovers and a punt.  Seems like people are quick to make excuses and give passes to our HC, QB, and offense and lump all the blame on the defense.  We can all agree that with the injuries to our secondary, our offense is our better unit this year.  I expect more out of them.  From what I’ve seen, our O’s lack of execution & play calling have cost us more games than our defense this year.  Our margin for error is too thin for our best unit (Offense) to not carry the team most games.  That’s why all 3 phases have to be complimentary.     Our identity is a team with a dominant rushing attack, clutch QB play, and an opportunistic defense that creates turnovers.  We stick to that formula and we’re a playoff team that no one wants to face.  We stray from it and we’re a mediocre team that finds more ways to lose against our tougher competition than to win.
