The Athletic's Stephen Holder reports that G Will Fries may be in the mix to start at right guard this year and that his development has been understated. I like that the Colts are building depth and flexibility on the offensive line.

Did we not beat them with rivers at home to make the playoffs? We also beat them this past season at home.

You are right, we usually play better at home. But, the home game was too close for comfort with them last year.

I said a while back Ballard was stalling to delay the inevitable. They are not bringing him back. I could hear it in Ballards tone and the way he selected his words when asked to address the subject.

They haven't beat us at home since 2017. We have won 4 in row at LOS vs them. Playing there is a different story as we know. I hope we play there on opening day.

I hope we get them there on opening day as well. We need to end our losing streak in Duval County and send a message we are ready to contend!

Colts hosted DE Demarcus Walker for free-agent visit

 

The Indianapolis Colts hosted free-agent defensive end Demarcus Walker for a free-agent visit, per Aaron Wilson of Pro Football Network on Tuesday.

While Indy has an intriguing edge rusher room headlined by Kwity Paye and Yannick Ngakoue, they will continue to look for pass rushers to add to the defensive front under new coordinator Gus Bradley.

A part of the 2017 NFL draft class, Walker entered the league measuring in at 6-foot-3 and 280 pounds with 33-inch arms.

A second-round pick with the Denver Broncos in the 2017 draft, Walker played 36 games (five starts) across four seasons with the team that drafted him. He then signed a one-year deal with the Houston Texans where he played 13 games (two starts) in 2021.

In 49 career games (seven starts), Walker has recorded 12.5 sacks, 14 tackles for loss and 23 quarterback hits

I wish him good luck and hope at least one of our options secure the LT spot this year. To be honest. It's probably for the best of the team that it's Raimann who does it, but I wouldn't be disappointed if Pryor turns into a legit starting LT for the team. (I personally have my doubts)

I think things will line up well for the Colts no matter how this turns out.   
 

Hypothetically speaking, even if Pryor is not the long term answer at LT, he could easily become our RG of our future, which IMO would then move Pinter to Center and we’d trade Kelly for a modest Day 3 pick.   Raimann would be the LT.  
 

So the OL would look like….

 

LT. Raimann

LG. Nelson

C.    Pinter

RG.  Pryor

RT.   Smith. 
 

I think that would still be a very solid line for next year.

There are some questions on that line, but at some point we will have to make some sacrifices and we will have to rely on lesser paid players to man up some of the positions on that line...

IDK. I really don’t understand everyone thinking Raimann will be good  enough right away. Pryor mentioned today he lost 10-15 lbs to play LT and hopes to lose 5 more.

I think it’s wishful thinking. I think Pryor starts at the start of the year but I wouldn’t be shocked if raimann overtakes him at some point this season.

(this is a joke, not real)

 

If that isn't not true , I'm dumbfounded he would say this. Not that what R.T. said was classy but this is over the top IMO.

I'm certain he's not good enough to start right away.  Otherwise, he'd have been gone in the 1st round.  But at his age (25), he can't afford to spend a season and a half learning the position and earning the job.  He's got a small window to figure it out and earn the position.  I would say Pryor starts at the beginning of the season, but Raimann had better earn the job before the year is out.

Yep. That’s one reason he didn’t go until 3 round was his age. Ballard wouldn’t even say he would play tackle. Said he could play guard.  Too many people are projecting him to beat out Pryor.

It was fake. He never said that.

On the blue stable they said that Bradberry is willing to take as little as 8 million if it’s the right team.

Cool cool. I was guessing 5-6 million earlier. We are probably the right team at this point as he would get playing time, and we are a playoff contender. I'd take a shot on him for one year since it's just cash at this point.

If true Irsay should be sending his plane tonight.  8 million should be a no brainer for Ballard.  

The only reason I can see it being an issue is if Ballard promised Rodgers & Facyson both a shot to fight for the number 2 spot.

    • If the Colts are looking for a YAC guy, Corley could be a target.  He does look like Debo.  Basically a RB once he has the ball.  I like him too.  It really depends on if they’re looking for a more vertical threat. Corely does show vertical shots on film but probably not his number one strength. 
    • Had to pull off a trade with the Bills to gain extra R5 pick.   Personally, am warming up to Luke.  Then again rooted heavily for him as Nebraska's QB and glad to see him succeed as a wide receiver.   WR Luke McCaffrey (Rice) According to PFF, 110 FBS-level receivers in this draft class were targeted at least 55 times. He ranked 46th in yards per route (2.11), 32nd in drop percentage (4.1 percent; three drops), 11th in contested catches (60.7 percent; at 17-of-28, his 17 contested catches trail only Washington’s Rome Odunze) and 36th in YAC per catch (6.0).  Liking Luke's low drop percentage and ability to make contested catches.  Pretty solid company to be compared to Odunze who had issues prior season and outdone Marvin Harrison Jr. this year.     SS Trey Taylor (Air Force) won Jim Thorpe Award in 2023 with strong leadership qualities in the secondary.  Taylor is related to Ed Reed.  After 9 weeks Taylor’s 88.5 coverage grade is second among Group of Five safeties while posting an impressive 78.8 run-defense grade.  Taylor overall PFF grade of 85.8.
    • My top 4 realistic draft picks.  Not sure we take a WR in Round 1 but would look for Roman Wilson in Round 3 and Luke in Round 5.  Swing a trade for multiple Round 5 draft picks and add another offensive weapon in TE Ben Sinnott whom I think is probably the third best TE in the class.    WR Adonai Mitchell (Texas) According to PFF, 110 FBS-level receivers in this draft class were targeted at least 55 times. He ranked 78th in yards per route (1.72), sixth in drop percentage (1.8 percent; one drop), 79th in contested catches (36.4 percent; 4-of-11) and 100th in YAC per catch (3.2). He caught 8-of-22 passes thrown 20-plus yards downfield.   WR Xavier Legette (SC) According to PFF, 110 FBS-level receivers in this draft class were targeted at least 55 times. He ranked fifth in yards per route (3.15), 18th in drop percentage (2.7), 49th in contested catches (47.6 percent; 10-of-21) and 29th in YAC per catch (6.4). He caught 13-of-24 passes thrown 20-plus yards downfield, good for an eighth-ranked 54.2 percent.   WR Roman Wilson (Michigan) - According to PFF, 110 FBS-level receivers in this draft class were targeted at least 55 times. He ranked 13th in yards per route (2.68), ninth in drop percentage (2.0 percent; one drop), 72nd in contested catches (37.5 percent; 3-of-8) and 67th in YAC per catch (4.6).   WR Luke McCaffrey (Rice) According to PFF, 110 FBS-level receivers in this draft class were targeted at least 55 times. He ranked 46th in yards per route (2.11), 32nd in drop percentage (4.1 percent; three drops), 11th in contested catches (60.7 percent; at 17-of-28, his 17 contested catches trail only Washington’s Rome Odunze) and 36th in YAC per catch (6.0).
    • FWIW:   At $6 million per that made MAC one of the top-12 paid players on the Colts 2023 roster.   Do you still think he’s cheap?  
    • Isn’t it time to look for a home run pick for the offense? Bowers would be that kind of pick. Having a dynamic TE would be huge and would arguably be equal to picking up a WR1 running mate for Pitt. If he’s available at 15 I think it’s a no brainer to pick him.
