Ok….  I’ll put it another way….    Isiah Rogers and Dez Patmon were drafted toward the bottom of the 6th round.   I think it’s picks 212 and 213.    Strachan was drafted a year later near the top of the 7th round.   About 13-15 picks later in a different draft.   What I’m saying is it looks like we’ve hit on Rogers.   Patmon had a good camp here in his third year.   So another possible success story.   If we’re patient with Strachan, we may see similar results.   
 

We also hit on 7th rounders like Franklin and Adams.    We’ve got an eye for talent.   No team is perfect.   But we have a very high batting average. 

I never said they can’t hit. I said the rarely do. I remember when Rodgers was drafted everyone said he should of went higher. I just don’t get that invested until they hit. I love Rodgers because he has proven he can play now.  Did Franklin really hit? He is just a special teams guy and barely plays defense. He is kept because of leadership.

We just signed Franklin to a 3-year contract.  He’s our 3rd LB when we need one.   If he was just a special teams ace, he’d have been signed to a 1 or 2 year deal.  We signed him to a longer deal.   That’s a hit, especially for a 7th round pick. 
 

As for Rodgers, I don’t remember anyone saying he should have gone higher.   We know why he didn’t go higher.   He’s small (5’10” 170) and he played in a conference that doesn’t turn out many NFL level players.  He went roughly where he was expected.  
 

To be clear, I’m not predicting greatness for Strachan, I’m only saying there’s reason to be modestly optimistic that he can turn into a decent player.   He’s got traits worth developing.   That’s all I’m saying.

Well he has failed everywhere he has gone. So what’s that say.

Might be difficult finding success when you miss a year due to a serious injury, then when you come back, you're asked to totally change your game. 

 

He was always somewhat of a long shot, and specialist type (limited use type at Clemson). I have zero clue in terms of his chances in Philly. But Sirianni grabbed him and is giving him a chance.

Barring injury, MPJ, Parris, Pierce, and Dulin are basically locks.  So that leaves one or two slots.  
 

MS and Dez are most likely the guys competing for it.  They’re basically the same size and have similar 40 times.  Dez has more experience in college against better opponents.  He trains regularly with Pittman.  Starchan is a project,and isn’t helping himself if he’s not available.  

 

All that being said, IMHO if either of them don’t show up in August, expect TY back.

I don’t share this view at all.   I think this organization doesn’t seem to play close attention to X, Y, Z, Flanker, you name it.  
 

Patmon was already on the roster when we drafted Strachan.   I don’t think the Colts see a conflict.   I think they see raw talent that they hope to develop and they don’t appear to get caught up kn who does what.    I think they expect most every receiver to be able to do most everything.  
 

Im sure my view won’t be popular, but that’s ok. 

Your opinion is perfectly valid.  We are willing to move guys around amongst the different position, but I think we totally failed to find anyone effective in the slot last year.  That’s why I was a little miffed we stuck to our formula in the 2nd and took Pierce.  I was hoping we’d pick up a WR who brought something new to the table, like Calvin Austin, who’s lightning quick and should be great in the slot.  


As always, the second he became a Colt, I became a big Alex Pierce fan.  I understand that his talent level is significantly above that of 6th and 7th rounders Patmon and Strachan, even if he shares physical attributes with them (size, ability to go get 50-50 balls, etc.).  I’m just a little worried that we won’t have a slot receiver when Campbell gets his annual injury…

Wentz does not see the middle of the field well. Fact is Hines had his most snaps at reciever ever  but had a awful year because Wentz just doesn’t use the middle of the field. Your fear is actually why I think Coutee will make the team if we don’t sign TY back.
