You never know what you will get with the undrafted guys.

Example: Jessie (The Hammer) Tuggle. One of the best linebackers ever. Played for the Falcons. His son is Grady Jarrett that also plays for Atlanta.

 

Im pulling for JoJo Domann-linebacker and Ryan Van Demark-offensive lineman.

 

Who ya got?

Same two guys. Domann and Demark. They have a legit shot to make the 53 IMO and possibly make some sort of impact this year.

I find it a little odd and maybe telling that the Colts didn't sign any of the top 30 undrafted WR's.   I guess it shows that Ballard may be happy with what we have.

Also, Weatherford seems like he may make the 53, and the 4th RB completion (if we keep a 4th) is wide open…

Borghi was my hopeful, got released before anything even started. Read he tried out with Denver 

Borghi signed with Denver last week and is currently favored to make the 53 man roster as their 4th rb.

 

I also like Van Demark,JOJO,Verdell and Weatherford.  

 

James Skalski was a stud at Clemson but is behind Rhyne as of now on depth chart.

I remember right after his signing people were high on Scott patchan. I followed his career very closely at miami and didn’t think he had a shot to make the colts. Very injury prone and already like 25 and a half years old. 

 

He didn’t even make it to camp. Believe he is on the saints now.

Jack Coan and Tyler Van Demark

 

Its worth noting that thoe two players also got the most money at signing among all our UDFAs.

 

I wonder if Coan could beat out Elingher.

Maybe? Havent heard anything out of camp about Coan.........

Coan could get put on the practice squad but that would be four quarterbacks on the roster.

I expect to make the 53 (if I had to pick on lock)

  • LB JoJo Domann (Nebraska)

 

Chance of making the 53 (PS lock if not 53)

  • LB Forrest Rhyne (Villanova) - better chance if Leonard is slow to return
  • QB Jack Coan (Notre Dame) - not sure we'll keep 3, but wouldn't be shocked to see him have a better PS than Sam
  • C Wesley French (Western Michigan) - only if we keep 10 OL
  • T Ryan Van Demark (UConn) - chances are getting better the longer D Kelly is out with injury
  • LB Sterling Weatherford (Miami Ohio) - STs 
  • LB James Skalski (Clemson) - STs

Ok, not to single you out 'cause I've seen many do this, and I expect the guy to make at least the PS if not the initial 53 man.... His middle name isn't Van.  The last name is Van Demark. Lol.  His Jersey will read Van Demark on the back.  It's nit picky time of year.....come on Sat!

Domann is probably the obvious choice because we were lucky he was a UDFA. He was seemingly thought to definitely be a draft pick, even possibly in round 5 or 6.

 

Really hoping for Van Demark or Weatherford since they seem to better fit the "diamond in the rough" description. Each is a good athlete with maybe some flaws that are only perceived or can be overcome.

    • We made no attempt to re-sign Fischer or Glowinski. Ballard had faith in "his guys." Good job Ballard - Grigson would be so proud!
    • I wonder more why coaches continue to keep trying it when it's clear it isn't working. 
    • This team isn't going to win many games if the OL doesn't figure things out quickly.
    • Replace Pryor and Pinter and good things will happen.
    • The line has two problems.   1.  Pinter just isn’t good enough.  That’s a personal issue that I would be looking at if I was the Colts.  I would be thinking about trying Dennis Kelly or moving Pryor over to RG and letting Raimann play LT.  I will say there were a couple of plays where Pinter did hold his own vs Chris Jones but there are just too many plays where he gets turn styles or worse (see the play where he was turned into a speed bump for a sack).  Teams have figured out he’s the weak leak and are attacking accordingly.   2.  The issue Romo spot lighted today.  Communication.  Ryan is adjusting to a new offense and is having to think more than he normally does and because of that the Colts are having issues getting the protection schemes right.  Kelly gives the line their blocking assignments but Ryan gives the backs, tightends, and receivers theirs.  The best play to spotlight this was the play where KC sent five guys but both Taylor and Pryor went to block the same guy and no one picked up the guy coming inside of Pryor resulting in a free rusher on Ryan.  Romo seemed pretty confident Ryan is going to be just fine in about six weeks (which fits the patterns of offensive struggles the Colts have had under Reich at the start of the season with all the new QBs, Luck, Rivers, and Wentz all had the same adjustment period to being in a new system.).  So the good news is that should get better with time.  The really good news was that Ryan seemed like he was finally comfortable in the offense at the end of the game and the blocking was MUCH better.  Maybe it’s finally starting to click.
