Feldman usually does a nice job combining a list of guys w some traitsy stuff

The highly ranked UDFAs at guard would probably like the opportunity the Colts can give them to fight not just for a spot on the roster, but maybe even start... 

Yeah, the Colts should be an attractive destination to UDFA Guards

Around this time, I like to hear about possible UDFAs that folks might like.  Anyone you all are interested in?

 

Anyone know the CB out of Jackson State? Has he been selected? He is supposed to be a sleeper. He learned from Deion Sanders.

We tripled down, but it wasn't Trice lol. Position is fixed now IMO.

I love what Ballard did with the CB position. This is a great class... use the depth of the class at the position to our advantage... 

Brugler had him as a 5th rounder, PFF have him as their 105th best player... Zierlein has him as a 4th rounder... 

 

Another good steal...

Only downside to Jaylon Jones is that he will be 26 in October. So he's probably a "one contract" guy. However, if we get 4 years out of a 7th rounder, that's a huge win!

Hm... Brugler's guide says he's 21.

    • When I say talent I mean actual difference makers, not JAGs.    I wasn’t talking about Steichen. I was talking about the new DL coach and Secondary coach as that was the conversation.    Why do you say I’m shovelling worry, when our pass rush has been subpar for years and our secondary has been aswell? Do think it’s unreasonable to question whether any of the talent, the coaching or the GM is getting it done at this point?   These things have been topics since I started posting here and it still is. I don’t understand how you don’t think that’s a concern. 
    • I think if Ballard doesn't add talent, it can be fairly interpreted as if Ballard doesn't add enough talent. The NFL Draft kinda forces every GM to add talent, doesn't it?    Aren't you the guy who thought that at that end of last offseason Ballard had left such obvious holes in the roster that it was apparent the team was tanking? 
    • I was thinking about Moe Allie Cox’s cap situation.  He currently counts at almost $6m against the cap.  PFF thinks he could be a cap casualty.  With Ogletree’s spot on the team up in the air and Woods situation also not the most assuring I was thinking the Colts might ask him to take a pay cut and keep him.  He might be receptive to that instead of going out in the market and taking a lesser amount with a different team.  He has certainly made contributions in the red zone and as a blocking tight end.  Taking a pay cut might make sense all the way around.  Just a thought that I think has merit.
    • I agree. Passsing on Bowers is wild. But he went to the Bengals which tells me DJ forced a pick. Sometimes with mock drafts, people love a player and team fit so much that they have players slip way past what is feasible. People have been clamoring for the Bengals to draft a TE for years so Bowers would be a dream scenario for that crowd that thinks that.
    • The only thing that it changed was that Kelce got more looks and went from 1 catch for 1 yard before the half to 9 catches for 92 yards the rest of the way.     Forgotten is their LB play. Their LBs Nick Bolton and Willie Gay are good blitzers and stay with boot legs and rollouts well enough that Purdy with pressure in his face can barely get 5 yards off his throw after the pass catcher gets tackled. When 1-on-1 Purdy once outran Nick Bolton for a horse collar penalty, so Spags changed it to a safety Reid instead of putting an LB on Purdy realizing Purdy has got some wheels. You couldn't help but notice the quick adjustment. Plus, the angles an OLB takes also matter. Sam Hubbard of the Bengals on the surface may not be fast in a straight line but he takes very good angles and hence Lou Anurumo used that DE/OLB as a Mahomes spy and played contain in that 2021 AFCCG where the Bengals beat the Chiefs.   The biggest difference now is that Mahomes and The Chiefs are dinking and dunking like Brady and The Patriots and it is not a deep to shallow level passing game like before, more shallow to deep levels that gives DCs fits because Mahomes' decision making, since he was forced to grow after Tyreek Hill left, has improved. It doesn't help he has a D like the Patriots in those early SB years either.
