Just want to say that Oakland is excited that one of our 3 guys is still available. :)

Feels like this draft is going faster than last years :)

Pryor more of a SS I think, but man if you pair those two together you will have one of the hardest hitting safety groups in the NFL.

Great, really enjoying the perceived harder competition at home compared to the road, we will need the best scenarios because we have some tough games that should be pretty close.

I like the Barr Pick, the other guys I would have been interested in for the Lions had been taken as well, he should be a good addition to what they already have there

@smonroe Oakland, I think the Fans will rally behind him, he has that grit and nastiness they crave, and he seems to be a hard worker so hopefully that rubs off on his teammates.
@Kyle Rodriguez @paulcareyjr I added it to the Raiders post, but it is email@example.com

I can do the Lions also if you end up needing additional owners.

Really good article, I will say on that first play, his angle was off, but I believe that is also due to him not thinking 3 of his teammates would miss the tackle, but I see the lack of speed evidence.
BTW, I think you continue to grow as a writer and analyzing the Colts, I have been active since Coltsider, keep up the good work, also the group you guys here all seems to keep evolving putting out quality product. :)

@bengundy @paulcareyjr @Kyle Rodriguez Thanks, yeah just read the previous article good read, not sure how I missed that but should be interesting to see how these players production increases(hopefully) next year.
Wow, not sure how I skipped over this the first time but really good article... gives me much more understanding of the new visuals you guys will be using

Sateles run block numbers are atrocious, but I have a few comments/questions.
1. Say for Satele in a zone blocking type down where he does not engage does that count toward blocking %
2. Also I like it but I am wondering exactly what the numbers mean, is it correlated with just making contact, or holding the block til the pass is gone, or is there a minimum time fore engagement for the block.
3. I know it is probably not feasible, but it would be interesting to also chart yds gained on running downs when the play is supposed to go through their whole. (not sure how clear I made that part)
This may be more beneficial for interior lineman than tackles, but would be interesting if it could be tracked.

Possibly, but maybe they are changing that mindset a bit, seeing that they got dhb of the field totally on offense by the end of the year.
Good write up, yeah I assumed Whalen as more of a slot, but if I am getting what you are saying correct, he does better on the outside where he is able to have more initial space to work with, and I guess that makes a lot of sense.
This kind of goes along the point I was making in a previous post why I don't think he much of a comparison to Welker, because to me Welker seems to use his quickness to excel in Man coverage, something I really don't see as much of out of Whalen.
With that being said I can see him sticking around because of his reliability as a back up, should be interesting to see how this offseason goes.

@georgecostanzalll Ofcourse I would take a guy I knew could come in and play at that level Right away, but we have a lot of holes and drafting an olineman doesn't mean he will produce, so you Have to take that into consideration also.
I should also add that even though line plan had been super questionable, Luck had to learn how to get rid of the ball at times, some big his he takes because he holds on to it to long.
Finally if you invest in lineman you don't just give them one year and trash them, we knew Holmes and Thornton had questions coming in and would need development, drafting a guy in the Late 2nd this year could be a similar project.
Yeah I think the idea between Brooks and Joyner is one a lot of people stubble with. I think I go with Joyner though, we really don't have many play makers on our defense and I think Joyner will add that along with the versatility. With his skillset you can also take a shot at drafting a corner later in the draft because you can move him around, also when looking at the tape Brooks just doesn't look too exciting to me, I think he has a good skillset, but will need some coaching.

@GeorgeCostanzaIII I think C/G combo player could be had at the 2nd if available, but you never know, I am not all for drafting a o-lineman who is only restricted to one position. The Colts have a lot of guys they believe in and want to give a chance on the line already, but if the right guy falls I think they will pull the trigger.
Also I am more interested in a Center than Guard.
@7IHd like who? I know there were some in the previous years, but not sure about this year.

Yeah, we will definitely add depth in this area in the draft, not sure if it will be with the 2nd, but I am pretty positive that one pick will be a safety.
Hopefully I am not wrong.
@cantfindanames I think he is okay, I mistakenly took him for Lamarcus Joyner in a different post, but if it came down to the two I am taking Joyner everytime... I love playmakers, and I think he is better in every category you listed besides size.

@Professor Blue @Professor Blue still early, I like Deone Bucannon but as you stated more of a SS than FS, I always disliked the Landry move, not just because of him being paired with Bethea being a bad grouping, but I never really thought he was that good, I think his best attribute is an intimidator, I mean he is fast, but a lot of times I don't see him play like it.
He definitely has potential, but yeah we will see how his offseason is, hopefully he has a big jump in his second year. Trade still a little iffy, but oh well we move one.
Nice write up.

@ECB I think he might be better at DE, but I do think Chapman and him being in a rotation along with having Moala, Redding, Jones and RJF covering most of the basis on the front line is probably good enough depth, we will probably add one more guy or so but I doubt we do much now.
@thellamajockey @smonroe Said this before, but don't worry too much, centers taken in the first two rounds typically have a good career and are not too bad in their first year either., I am all for bringing in Martin and starting him right away, I don't really like anything from Holmes from the start of his senior year til now.
3 weeks, 6 days ago on Colts Draft Prospect Interest Tracker
@thellamajockey I like the idea, I mean he can play C and Guard, hopefully he starts at C, but he will add depth so not really too worried.
Also it is still kind of early, I expect to see more guys on this list as we get closer to the draft.
only 5 I really know about are Archer, Mason , Marcus Martin, Cyril and Jimmie Ward...
Hopefully we bring in a couple more secondary guys, I have to imagine some of these guys are potential FA types
This team has a bunch of weak spot, I am not sure all could have been addressed with free agency, or the draft, but this is for hoping that offseason training plays a huge role in developing your young guys.
If you are looking at the make up of our team we have a bunch of young guys that we are waiting for to develop, if they can start getting to where they should be we can have a really good team, I mean our average age on offense is probably like 26 maybe 27, that is pretty young, defense maybe 29, but there are guys that could be inserted when they develop that would bring that down as well.

Wouldn't call then all stellar, but best luck to him in SAN FRAN , it will be interesting to see what other moves are made this yeah, wonder what our current roster situation is?
1 month ago on ICYMI: Free Agency Recap and Colts on Twitter
I think in the Draft we end up taking the best player available besides qb, rb, wr, te, and tackle, Could literally see us go anywhere else, other poisons which could happen but not likely are guard, de, and olb, leaving c, nt, safety, cb and ilb the most likely targets.
I guess it will be a DB, Just my thoughts.
