Colts select Michael Strachan WR


Recommended Posts

Had a season canceled due to COVID.  A lot of the guys who didn’t play last year due to COVID have slipped in the draft.  Wonder if the Colts are thinking they are getting some extra value.

Don’t know much about him, but I am all for some WR depth/competition; it’s much needed. At this point I think we really just need another CB and an LT and we’re a well-filled-out team

Has background as a track guy if i recall that correctly, highly athletic, high character, but level of competition is a question mark. He is raw, but was very productive in college, so not necessarily a project. Like the upside.

Finally, somebody to protect the blind-side...

 

Wait, what?...

i 100 percent believe colts will pick up swartz  to play tackle or fisher ballard is very familiar with the chiefs players since he was there in 2016 .  colts saved enough money to easily get them and they will come on a discount and are just as good as Ac was  .   get a one year deal and get a tackle next draft

I agree.

 

And I apologize. I should've put the sarcasm icon at the end of my post. :D

OK, I'm thinking THIS is one of the scout's picks :)

he is absolutely huge --- especially comparing him to the guys he played against in that league with Charleston.

but  he's also fast, apparently has good hands and is pretty good at high-pointing the ball, according to Mel.

one thing that seemed worrisome as far as translating to pro competition. --- he didn't look like he got any real significant separation, even at his level. that could be because he could just catch over the top of all those guys.

If the guys we got on the edge this year pan out next season could be a trade up year to get a LT.

 

Figuring the Colts will draft around 20th next year and assuming we send our 1st to Philly, it's going to be difficult to move up for a "good" LT prospect.

As I said, level of competition was not good. He stood out though, as he should. He was drafted in round 7 as a player with the traits to be special, we'll see if he can put it together. I'll take this pick over a 3rd string QB without any starting upside any day.

I'm agreeing with you. he looked a foot taller than any corner he played against. good for his college stats, will be interesting to see what moves he knows to use against better athletes

That will be very good as it might mean we don't need a LT.

    • i dont know where your getting the information irsay would not let him fire chuck or wanting the 3-4 defense .   watching a couple of interviews of ryan after getting fired he claimed jim irsay was hands off and let him make his own choices .  ryan hired chuck because he wanted to and he was a fan of the 3-4 defense .  jim has always been hands off with his stafff only giving advice .  ryan clearly said he wanted to make things work with chuck and chose  not to fire him .   after ryan was fired jim let chris ballard make the choice on chuck , just like ryan made the choice on jim caldwell .    chris ballard knew luck was not gonna be ready until maybe the end of the 2017 season so he wanted to keep chuck in place to tank for more draft picks to trade back .
    • Year two is where we should really see him hit his ceiling. We are going to have to have a little patience with him this first year until everyone gets used to each other. I think he will be good this year bur 22 is where it should really click.
    • I simply don't know how much authority he ever had.  I'm not sure anybody does.   It sound like he was simply a guy who was plucked out of a job In Philly, maybe having narrow duties, but did not have the managerial instincts and NFL connections to be able to assemble a non Polian staff.    Still, did Irsay help him in this aspect or just let him sink?   It always seemed like a weird authority structure.  Starting right off with Irsay handling the PM situation, deciding to draft Luck, wanting a 34 defense, not allowing RG to fire Pagano, and I wonder who made the call to either keep Arians or Pagano after the ChuckStrong campaign but the team flourishing under Arians.  Not that there was a real choice, but I always wondered if Irsay and Grigs had a talk about that after season 1 and what each thought about each coach and why.
    • We were in a great spot to trade up for Herbert. But we only had two teams we could of traded with. The giants and I believe the lions.  They may not have wanted to trade. Then that means we Would not of gotten Buckner. I think Herbert would of been able to win right away with this team. Character wise he was the perfect fit too.
    • One thing that stuck out was he said he didn’t have a good supporting cast around him helping him make decisions. Irsay would of given him anything if he asked. This is why Ballard is so good. He surrounded himself with great people who keep him accountable. He even said the assistants and scouts at the end of the season get to review his job performance as a GM. He said they bust his balls lol.
