Safety Jay Stanley (Southern Miss)

Recommended Posts

Stanley declared for the 2024 NFL draft but unfortunately, I have been unable to find any information on him or even an UDFA status.  In 2022, he made the PFF College All-Ameria Third Team.  Young man had a knack for forcing fumbles and shown hands for the interceptions.  Had great height and weight measurements standing 6'2" and 215 pounds.  Seems like Jay fell off the grid.  Figured his he might have been on the Colts radar given his measurements and statistics.  Anybody have any additional details?

Found Stanley’s Pro Day Results from 03/25/2024.  Hands 9 3/8, decent wingspan of 79 ½”. Stanley ran slower at his pro-day than Kamren Kinchens did with a 4.78s 40-yard dash which was even worse than James Williams SAF Miami (FL).  Curious if he was injured or that Is his top speed.  His vertical was only 33” which was still better than Jaylon Carlies, Josh Proctor, Patrick McMorris, Demani Richardson, and James Williams.  Even his broad jump was much better than those mentioned above, except Josh Proctor (10’1”), and bested Kamren Kinchens, Kitan Oladapo, and Daijah Anthony from the Combine.  Stanley’s 3-Cone Drill and 20 Yard Shuttle were actually better than some of the cornerbacks drafted this time around.  


Still went through PFF's recent 2024 UDFA tracker and still could find Stanley mentioned.  Guess teams are ignoring him with such a slow 40-yard dash time.  If he was injured might account for his speed and sub-par vertical jump.

    • I know there was questions about TE bring there. Cox was there. Don’t know if any others were there.
    • I often go through an exercise I call "Tomorrow's Colts", in homage to the Star Trek episode "Tomorrow's Enterprise", where I look at the roster counting only the young players.  Just those 25 and younger.  This gives me an idea of the shape of our team when it comes to asking the question "If we have only a 4-year window, or a 6-year window, who would still be here at the end of that window?  Who would our foundational players be?  And which of today's players would determine the boundary of that window, because of their retirement?"  Also, which positions should we draft, simply to backfill for those rounding out their careers. As you look over the list, please note who is missing.   Tomorrow's Colts QB Anthony Richardson (age 22) QB Sam Ehlinger (age 25) RB Jonathan Taylor (age 25) RB Trey Sermon (age 25) RB Evan Hull (age 23) WR Alec Pierce (age 24) WR Josh Downs (age 22) WR Adonai Mitchell (age 21) WR Anthony Gould (age 23) TE Jelani Woods (age 25) TE Drew Ogletreen (age 25) TE Will Mallory (age 25) T Blake Freeland (age 23) T Jake Witt (age 24) T/G Matt Goncalves (age 23) G/C Tanor Bortolini (age 22) G Dalton Tucker (age 24) DE Kwity Paye (age 25) DE Dayo Odeyingbo (age 24) DE Laiatu Latu (age 23) DE Isaiah Land (age 24) DT Aditomiwa Adibawore (age 23) DT Jonah Laulu (age 24) LB Grant Stuard (age 25) LB Cameron McGrone (age 25) LB Jaylon Carlies (age 22) CB JuJu Brents (age 24) CB Jaylon Jones (age 22) DB Jaylon Simpson (age 24) DB Ameer Speed (age 24) S Julian Blackmon (age 25) S Nick Cross (age 22) S Trevor Denbo (age 25)   Note anybody missing?  And how they would affect the length of our current window?  
    • All I can say is if Jamal Adams makes a positive impact for the Titans, or Simmons or Diggs make a positive impact for someone else I’m gonna be upset with Ballard. It’s nice and all to trust in your young guys to step up, but you can still do that while covering your butt in case they don’t. 
    • Ballard was on the green light podcast a couple days ago.    
    • Anyone heard what time Ballard will have his presser tomorrow.
