@TheGreatMisdirect @thellamajockeyDietrich-Smith I believe is a converted guard mentored by Jeff Saturday in 2012. So while I have said that is a good thing, it is not like he is a true vet center.
1 day, 9 hours ago on CA Draft Position Overviews: Center
@paulcareyjr The top center in draft Marcus Martin, an underclassmen, is ranked in the low 50s overall. If he is available the Colts could take him. But the rest of the top 3 Centers would be a clear reach with 2nd round pick.
Question is would any rookie center make the Colts a SB contender in 2014 or 2015? Irsay wants to win SB with Lucky on his rookie contract.
Boomstick is a pretty good athlete. I keep hoping they will let him attempt a fake punt someday.

@TheGreatMisdirect @thellamajockey Doubt Colts sign Mack for mega Center bucks. Is Dietrich-Smith an UDFA really likely to be a long term starter over Holmes and worth the money? Signing Dietrich-Smith would be a big vote of no confidence in Holmes. Would almost be a huge admission by Grigson he made a mistake with Holmes.
Does McGlynn have a future as just a guard in the NFL? To me his only future is as backup utility interior linemen. I doubt McGlynn with his limitations at guard will have that many options with other teams. His advantage with the Colts is that he knows the offense and can make O-Line adjustment calls. And I expect the Colts will be able to resign McGlynn for cheap.
McGlynn seems serviceable until Holmes is ready to be the starter at center or until another Draftee or UDFA is developed.

Jeff Saturday: Height: 6 ft 2 in (1.88 m)
Weight: 295 lb (134 kg)
Of the three above I would not over empathize size and strength. I would look for technique and ability to make o-line calls. Linsley as a late rounder or even an UDFA might be as good a bet as the others.

@smonroe On the NFL Network this morning, Charlie Casserly was saying Center and Guard are the weakest positions in free agency.
Alex Mack's services could be bid high, and Cleveland will still have the option of raising the ante.
1 day, 13 hours ago on CA Draft Position Overviews: Center
Any guess as to the current and projected roster depth at center going in to training camp??
Right now I would guess 1). McGlynn, 2). Holmes 3). Draftee
am not at all hopeful the Colts will land Alex Mack or should, or will find a FA
substantially better at calling o-line adjustments than McGlynn, or
with better potential talent than Holmes.
So looks like no
center draftees worth considering with the Colts' 2nd round pick.
Almost looks like no draft pick likely to start in 2014

Oh Canada anyone?????
Cost estimate for Evan Dietrich-Smith??? Didn't Jeff Saturday mentor him in his transition to a center? Could be a good fit for Colts if he is familiar what Colts have looked for in a center in the past.
Decker's price will be too high for a Colts team with so many promising young receivers with so much yet to be realized potential competing for targets. Lots depends on how Wayne is doing in his recovery. I hear great. Unless Decker will be Colts' clear #1 receiver you can not justify the price. Still Colts need a big receiver in Red Zone, they're counting on Da'Rick Rodgers developing. That is what I have against Golden Tate. Colts already have two good undersized YAC WRs in Hilton and Brazill.
Keep Patty Mac, Bob Lamey will retire someday.
4 days, 8 hours ago on Colts Top Five Free Agent Targets
@Payton @thellamajockey I am sure the Colts will insist on a complete psychological workup being done prior to any signing. Lots of teenagers have depression issue that resolve themselves as adults. It is partly called hormones. Lots and lots of NFL players have issues.
Martin's under performance is the 10ton elephant in the room. It begs the question of what went wrong with a highly touted 2nd rounder, pick #42.
But seriously the only team likely to compete with Colts for Martin's services will be the 49ers. GMs just don't get that kind of leverage very often. Can not see how having Martin in training camp would be a problem.

Anybody catch Patty Mac on the NFL network this morning? He was very good. Compared his ST tackles to Terrell Davis's.
4 days, 10 hours ago on Colts Top Five Free Agent Targets
Don't start putting the "For Sale" signs in Satele's front yard just yet, Cleveland put the Transition Tag on Alex Mack. Colts would have to bid at least 10 mil a year to get him.

@Payton @thellamajockeyDid Martin have any mental health issues at Stanford?? None that I heard of. Incognito is the one with the history of some sort of manic/bullying disorder and just announced once again is seeking treatment.
I say work Martin out. If he looks good, I am sure Grigson can structure a low cost, low risk deal. Get him into camp, if he does not work out, He is gone. I doubt Martin will be that highly bid for.

@Bobman @thellamajockey The center / bassist analogy works because they are both relatively unglamorous members but essential for a tight well functioning team/band.
Last year I would say the Colts went thru RBs like Spinal Tap goes thru drummers. Besides good RBs like drummers need to be a bit animalistic , have a sense of timing, be unafraid to hit the hole. Which begs the question who died in a bizarre garden accident best left unsolved, who choked on whose vomit, and who spontaneously combusted, who exploded on stage...
By the way "Big Bottom" makes for an awesome ring tone as long as the other half is either clueless or has an exceptional sense of humor.

The Colts need another sub standard center the way Spinal Tap needs another bass player.

Assuming Jonathan Martin's looker room and off field issues are behind him or not a problem. Purely as an OT what do think of him becoming a Colt. Can he realistically be converted to a utility OL men and play guard as well as tackle?
I am will to give him a serious look see if not a shot.

@Kyle Rodriguez @thellamajockeyOops thought WR Patterson hurt his ACL, but was confused with another player probably CB Tryann Mathews who got hurt late in the season. Both were on a list of pre draft touted rookies whose seasons were being reviewed on NFL network. Still doubt that Patterson was a clear better choice over Werner. Was there an available OLB who was a better scheme fit and would not have in one way or another been a project?
The clearly standout rookie WR was Keenan Allen. If the Colts had a 2nd round pick, Allen would have been a no brainer. But lots of other team too passed because Allen had injury issues. But with the rest of WR class I am willing to wait to see how Da'Rick Rodgers develops before passing judgment.
Again doubt DRC wanted to sign with Colts. Colts got Toler for 3 years, they can cut him for $600,000 dead cap this year. Colts gambled on his health and came up short, can back out with out too much damage.

@Kyle Rodriguez @thellamajockey
Where is the Center??? Did Vasquez want to come to the Colts? DRC only signed a one year deal, he may have been tough to get long term. Maybe DRC thought like Vasquez he as sure to win an SB ring with the Broncos. Toler's deal was more favorable.
The Colts needed a OLB pass rusher and Werner was rated high and fell to the Colts. Would taken some balls to pass on Werner.
Can you really say Grigson screwed up the first round. Patterson has already blown his ACL. Da'Rick Rogers may have as much/more potential than Hopkins and Colts got him for nothing.
Not sold at all on your arguments that Grigson could have done better.
