Defending our Draft 2018

** Pick 1.6 Quenton Nelson, Guard, Notre Dame**
Why guard?
I’m sure most people know that offensive line has been a problem for the Colts for decades at this point. They have especially struggled drafting interior linemen in the mid to late rounds, where other teams often find starters. Entering the offseason, guard was one of the Colts’ biggest needs with their roster only having guys like Jeremy Vujnovich, Mark Glowinski, and other players who had no business starting. Mewhort was then brought back for cheap, which could be great if he can return to the form he was at prior to injuries. Matt Slauson was also signed and was penciled in as the starter heading into the draft. Drafting Nelson here allows Slauson to be a great 6th man who can play any interior spot. This is all about protecting Luck right now. Colts fans, and finally the front office, have had enough of drafting projects, and wanted to make a pick that will shore up the offensive line right now.
Why Nelson?
For those of you unaware, Quenton Nelson is one of the best guard prospects to come out of the draft in a long time. I know that with past names like Chance Warmack, Jonathan Cooper, and Greg Robinson(although he was seen as an eventual tackle) it seems like that is said every other year about some bust. So what makes Big Q different? Warmack struggled with footwork and pass protection, Cooper was too finesse and just gets pushed around, and Greg Robinson looked like Tarzan and played like Jane, with all of the physical attributes and none of the mental ones, or the nastiness. Quenton Nelson combines the best traits of these prospects and has really none of the weaknesses. That is why you are seeing a guard with no college tackle experience going 6th overall. Nelson has elite strength, athleticism, work ethic, footwork, and a great mental understanding of the game combined with a mean streak. He is a road grader in the running game, a large reason why Josh Adams was a borderline Heisman candidate and wasn’t even drafted this year. He also was a stalwart in pass protection, allowing only 5 pressures the entire year in 411 pass blocking snaps. In the eyes of the Colts and many others, he is a special and rare talent, and hopefully a plug and play starter at LG for years to come.

Pick 2.36 Darius Leonard, Will Linebacker, South Carolina State
Why linebacker?
Linebacker is the biggest need on the Colts roster. It was assumed by many that the Colts would add at least one and maybe two starters there in free agency, and Anthony Hitchens was seen as an eventuality, with us having such a need there, lots of money, and having his LB coach from Dallas as our new DC. None of this came to fruition as the Colts chose to largely shun free agency, handing out only a few small deals and even cutting Johnathan Hankins, last year's biggest signing and star of a surprisingly good Colts run defense, with the 8th best YPC allowed at 3.9 YPC. Many Colts fans were disappointed by this approach, but there was no way to fill all of our holes in one offseason, so the FO has decided to use that money later to push the Colts over the hump. While I was very surprised and in some cases disappointed, I do think going young and athletic while preparing for the ability to spend a lot of money in the future after stockpiling young players makes the most sense for the long term. So, we entered the draft with really no one on roster who has any business starting. So linebacker early was a no brainer.
Why Leonard?
The Colts are targeting speed and length in their new defense, and Leonard fits that perfectly. At 6’2 234, he has 10 ¼ inch hands (90th percentile for off ball linebackers), 34 ⅜ inch arms (96th percentile), and a 82 ⅛ inch wingspan (97th percentile). His listed 4.7 40 time(he was injured during the run) is not at all representative of his ranginess and athleticism. Leonard is a guy who is always around the ball, always making plays, and [moving like a safety.]https://gfycat.com/agilearidfly) He has very impressive block shedding skills for a small school player, and he easily runs down players sideline to sideline. He was also a very capable player off the edge in college, although he relied on his speed there and that won't work for him as well in the pros. He can also deliver some big hits. But where he will most improve the Colts is in coverage. His length and speed make him very dangerous both in zone coverage over the middle and man coverage with backs and tight ends. The Colts have lacked speed and coverage ability in their linebackers for a long time, and I think his coverage ability is a big reason we drafted him top 40. Leonard will slide into the WILL linebacker role from day 1 and he is the only linebacker on roster I am confident will start. He fits what this team wants perfectly, and he has a chip on his shoulder driving him to greatness from being rejected by his dream school in Clemson and having been doubted so much. He was the vocal leader of the defense at SC State, 2 time conference defensive player of the year, and has a motor that keeps running, and the Colts are hoping he can step up and be a leader in this young locker room right away. It might take some time to adjust to the pro game, but I think Leonard will be a very good do-it-all linebacker for the Colts.
Pick 2.37 Braden Smith, Guard, Auburn
Why guard again?
This is about doubling down on offensive line investments to make sure we have secured the future of our franchise, Luck. A great offensive line requires depth, and Nelson and Smith will help that for the interior offensive line tremendously. It is worth noting that Smith can play tackle in a pinch, but he is definitely better suited as a guard. The Colts haven’t had consistent guard play for years, and going Nelson and Smith back to back will give us that, and help Luck directly and indirectly (by helping the run game) greatly.
Why Smith?
I’ll let the man who chose him tell you. "(Smith) was the last guard that we thought was a starting-level guard," Colts general manager Chris Ballard said. "And we wanted to make sure we upped the competition level on the O-line and added some depth. And we think we did that, without question.” "I think he's going to be a heck of a player for us long-term. Pairing him with Nelson gives us two young guards going forward that can really help set the depth of the pocket and really help in our run game." "If you remember last year, we were having to pick guys off the street, and they're starting," Ballard said, "and I didn't want to go through that again. We need depth. If I learned anything from Andy Reid: O-line, O-line, O-line. That wins. That wins in December and January. When you have a good O-line/D-line, that wins." Braden is probably considered the favorite to start at RG, but if Mewhort is healthy and gets back to that level he was at previously, he would absolutely win the job. Mewhort seems to not be an option at RT after the badly failed experiment of putting him there a couple years ago. Whoever starts, the other will be an important depth piece. Another reason to think Smith will start is that Mewhort arguably has better positional versatility with experience at literally every OL spot over the years, and would be a valuable part of the OL platoon along with the starters and Matt Slauson and a few others. The hope is that this can help push this line over the top, although RT is still a big question mark. Some tape: He’s smart, here he helps by popping the DE before taking on and stopping his man, the DT. He’s powerful. Here he completely blows back his man, a 312 pound senior DT. He’s athletic. The more you watch the more he seems like Nelson lite. Watch him pull across the pocket to crush the defender and buy his QB time. Another Here he blocks two men, and is the only offensive lineman to stand strong at the line of scrimmage as well. Another! I think Braden is a great pick, and could be a day 1 starter to create a terrific young interior of Nelson-Kelly-Smith.
Pick 2.52 Kemoko Turay, Edge rusher, Rutgers
Why edge?
When the offseason began, edge was an overblown need for the Colts. Many analysts thought it was our biggest need, and that’s why the initial talk was all Chubb to Indy. But edge was never as desolate as linebacker or offensive line, with Jabaal Sheard quietly dominating all of last year, John Simon and last year’s disappointing but very athletic 3rd round pick Tarell Basham both moving there. While there would certainly have been a spot for Chubb opposite Sheard, it wasn’t our top need, but for bolstering the pass rush now, and securing the position for the future, more players there were definitely needed.
Why Turay?
Turay is a perfect fit as a high upside, uber athletic, underutilized pass rusher. Turay was extremely productive in limited pass rush snaps at Rutgers. According to Pro Football Focus, “On only 548 career rushes in four years (a season’s worth for some), Turay notched an incredible 16 sacks, 24 QB hits and 70 hurries.” A Colts scout said they had Turay with 110 QB pressures, Landry with 138, and Chubb 144. So numbers wise he was not far behind the others, and sometimes even ahead, despite having half or less of the pass rushing snaps in his career. What stands out about Turay on tape is his insane bend and balance off the edge. He uses that bend along with his length (6’5) and speed (4.65 40 with a tweaked hamstring) to blow past opposing offensive tackles. and disrupt the QB. Even when he doesn’t get the sack, Turay is often disrupting the passing game by making the QB uncomfortable. Where Turay is quite different than your usual athletic developmental edge rusher is that he is already a good run defender. He does a good job of setting the edge and manages to play disciplined and with a high motor, without letting himself become completely absorbed in trying to get the sack. Turay is a guy I will admit I knew very little about before the Colts took him, but in my opinion his tape and potential are insane. And bonus Turay gifs.

Pick 2.64 Tyquan Lewis, Defensive end, Ohio State
Why defensive end again?
I list Tyquan as a DE and Turay as EDGE for 2 reasons. 1- Lewis can slide inside, whereas if Turay were to have a secondary position in our new 4-3 it would probably be OLB, not DT. And 2- that is how the Colts officially listed them on draft day, potentially for the same reason. That being said, I think the reason we took Lewis here is the same reason we signed Denico Autry in free agency. Pass rush boost and the versatility to rush the passer from anywhere. I wouldn’t be surprised if the passing down defense features both Autry and Lewis as DTs. Guys with versatility and key traits like pass rush ability are extremely valuable depth. The Eagles won this year with a very strong rotation on both sides of the trenches, and the Colts look to be emulating that strategy.
Why Lewis?
For many Colts fans, this was, seemingly, one of the most underwhelming pick of the draft. Trading up into the second for a guy with average athleticism who wasn’t on the radar will do that. But even if Lewis isn’t a future starter, I am sure he will be valuable to his team from day 1 for, as mentioned before, his versatility and pass rush prowess. He also might not be an elite athlete like many or most of the Colts’ picks this year, but he makes up for that with a motor that is constantly running. He also has very good, although inconsistent, hand usage, able to strike opposing linemen with powerful blows and take advantage of a quickness mismatch (Lewis is the third rusher from the top here) when rushing inside. It is also worth noting that while he isn’t an amazing athlete, he’s far from a bad one too. He has very good straight line speed and acceleration, it is in his short area agility that he is underwhelming. While Lewis is a very talented pass rusher, he is an average at best run stopper, and unequipped to be a full time interior rusher. He has flashes against the run thanks to his hand usage and motor, but he overall not great at it. Overall, I would call consistency snap to snap his main flaw, although his consistency year-to-year at Ohio State was very good. In his final 2 seasons, Tyquan generated 35 combined sacks and hits from off the edge or inside. If Lewis can work on being more consistent, he has shown the ability to dominate his opponents. But regardless of if he ever reaches his ceiling, Lewis will be a valuable contributor as a part of the defensive line platoon from year 1.
Pick 4.104 Nyheim Hines, Running back, NC State
Why running back?
Running back was another obvious position of need heading into the draft. Last year’s starter Frank Gore has returned to Miami, and the Colts were left with last years 4th rounder Marlon Mack, Robert Turbin, and Christine Michael. Many see Mack as not having the ability to be the lead back. Turbin has been very good for the Colts as a situation short yardage runner but has never shown top back ability, and Christine Michael is mostly a known quantity as an okay RB with elite measurables. Perpetually underwhelming Matt Jones was in the mix too but was cut recently. So at the very least the Colts needed to add some more options to the stable to run the backfield by committee.
Why Hines?
Most fans pencilled in more powerful backs like Derrius Guice or Nick Chubb, or at least a back with the frame to add that to his game like Saquon or Royce Freeman as picks to serve as the thunder to Mack’s lightning. But while it is traditional to run a power back/scat back combo, it is not necessary to execute a proper RBBC. Take a look at Atlanta with Devonta Freeman, who has some power but is certainly more reliant on speed, and Tevin Coleman, as one of the league’s most dangerous RB duos. So I like the decision to take presumably the most talented player there on their board and let things work themselves out. When we first picked him, I was happy with the value, but did think he reminded me a lot of Marlon Mack. After watching more of him, I really think they do have a lot in common. Hines has better speed and receiving ability, Mack is more agile, but they have many similarities on tape. One of the areas he reminds me of Mack is his tremendous balance, that lets him keep runs alive when other backs would have fallen down. He and Mack both have a similar running style relying on speed and playing like their hair is on fire. This will lead to them overrunning lanes and running into blockers, but it is also usually to thank for the big runs they bust off. I would call it the RB equivalent of having a nonstop motor, and while it will lead to some bad outcomes, I ultimately view it as a positive, and vision can be worked on. Hines shows inconsistent vision, but he looks utterly dominant when he hits the right holes. But he will too often looks to bounce it outside for the big play (again, like Mack). He was stopped for a loss on about 20% of his runs, and Mack was tackled for a loss at the second highest pace in the league last year. Hines’ big calling card is his elite top speed and acceleration, but comparatively he is a bit lacking laterally. He is very elusive and slippery. He has a very good juke, and can bust out a dirty spin or two. He brings great return ability to the table (this was him as a freshman, when he was deemed too electric to redshirt by the coaches). Nyheim’s other calling card is his tremendous receiving ability, he can split out wide or in the slot as well. He runs a large route tree. Thanks to his skills as a receiver and return man, Hines’ floor is still that of a contributor, and that alone makes him a good 4th round pick in my eyes. He does not have power like many expected the Colts’ pick at RB to have, it just isn’t a part of his game at all. He is an inconsistent pass blocker just because of his size, but he is willing to go out there and give his all to protect the QB and that is a plus. Plus character, he will be a fan favorite and seems like a smart and nice kid. He is an unselfish player who will do what is needed of him, he manned the gunner spot on special teams at NC State. Because of a lack of power and vision thats a WIP, if his line is bad he won’t be able to do much. When his line is overwhelmed he isn’t often going to be able to dance his way out of the backfield for yardage. Ultimately, I think Hines will be getting consistent touches right away as a part of a backfield with no real leader. He has insane acceleration, and if the Colts’ OL is as improved as many think it is, he could make a real impact as a rookie. Despite similarities to Marlon Mack, I actually think Nyheim is the more well rounded player. He is better in the receiving game and while neither are good blockers, Hines tries harder at it at least. Hines was picked because he is a rare prospect that has a high ceiling and a high floor. Maybe he becomes the Alvin Kamara of 2018, maybe he’s just Tarik Cohen. Taking someone who will help right away, but that might prove to be more, is a perfect approach heading into a year where we are unlikely to compete but do need some help right now.
Pick 5.159 Daurice Fountain, Receiver, Northern Iowa
Why receiver?
The Colts haven’t had a major need at receiver seemingly since they first drafted Luck and TY back in 2012, when Reggie turned out to still have it and TY was a surprise superstar. The Colts tried to anticipate a need there with the much maligned decision to draft Dorsett in the first round, which failed and now leaves the Colts with a barebones receiving corps. TY is still here and still being a freak. Chester Rogers is a homegrown UDFA from Grambling who has been growing on the bench and that many believe in as a breakout candidate. Personally I would be fine having him as a third WR for this year to see what he’s got. But they were essentially the only 2 WRs with any experience on roster, with Donte Moncrief leaving for Jacksonville. Ryan Grant was an under the radar value signing that I loved, fresh off of a fishy failed physical foiling his newfound fortune(say that five times fast), the Colts got him for a meager 1 year deal. Grant brings quickness, route running, and solid hands that make him a solid #2 or a great #3 in my opinion, and I think assuming Luck is healthy he is another guy due to break out. But again, even with these three solid guys the depth here is atrocious. Furthermore, non of Rogers, TY, or Grant are over 6 feet (Rogers is listed as 6’1 but official measurements put him around 6’-5’11) or the kind of guys who are going to jump over you for a catch or win with physicality. All three guys are smaller, quick, route runner types. So a need for receivers for depth, and especially bigger contested catch guys, was obvious.
Why Fountain?
Fountain perfectly fits what the Colts were lacking at WR. Physical, tall, vertical, contested catch maker. Here is a video of him doing a vertical jump a full inch higher than anyone at the combine. https://twitter.com/UNIFootball/status/978019771038957568 His 42½" vertical and his 134" broad jump are both 98th(!) percentile for wideouts. He is not 6’5 like some of these types of guys, but he is every inch of 6’1, and his insane vertical jumping ability helps that tremendously as well. The Colts will hope he can fill a role as a go up and get it, redzone threat kind of guy. While he doesn’t run the crispest intermediate routes, he is a deep threat largely because of his ability to fool defenders with a double move, and also because of his ability to keep defenders at arm’s length. He doesn’t have TY’s speed, but this is the same way TY gets wide open behind defenses. And while he isn’t your quick route runner, he did run a 4.46 40 at his pro day, and he can move for a bigger guy.. He is explosive, he was a state championship hurdler and long jumper in high school. He has impeccable body control which is huge for a receiver whose game is winning contested balls. He makes acrobatic catches and mid-air body adjustments seem much easier than they are. Fountain has a great opportunity here with such a wide open depth chart, so don’t be surprised to see him catching some TDs come fall.
Pick 5.169 Jordan Wilkins, Running Back, Ole Miss
Why running back again?
The way I see it, if you’re lacking a standout player at a position there’s nothing wrong with taking another shot at the target. So basically, the same as Hines. We don’t have an obvious starter on roster at RB, so it’s a good position for a 5th rounder to potentially earn playing time. Running back especially is a position you can realistically find a day 1 starter, or at least a very quality player. Jordan Howard, Karlos Williams, and Jay Ajayi are just a few recent examples. Also, the Colts seem to be trying to imitate the Eagle’s approach of using like 4 guys as a committee, and without any bellcows like Ajayi or Blount the Colts need more guys there. Competition.
Why Wilkins?
On the surface this pick seemed confusing. LB is still hurting for talent, RT needs help, pass rush and interior defenders are lacking. So why take another RB when we already have a bunch of okay not great options there? Well, for one, as I said earlier, with no clear top guy the Colts can use options there. And also I think Wilkins is surprisingly polished for a 5th rounder and 1 year starter. Wilkins has very good size for the position (6’1 216), and is a very fluid runner with good ballcarrier vision. He is what I would consider a one cut back. He won’t run a 4.3 or show overwhelming power every play, but he can get away from you or run you over if need be. He was suspended for the season in 2016 for academic reasons apparently related to an administrative mix up. I am not exactly sure what that means, but apparently it had Wilkins angry and ready to go for 2017-18. Ole Miss threw the ball over 36 times per game in 2017, and Ole Miss QBs combined for over 100 rushes themselves, so Wilkins didn’t get the amount of carries he likely would have elsewhere. However in the 155 carries he was given, he gained 1011 yards for a gaudy 6.5 yards per carry average. He also caught 26 passes for 241 yards, 9.3 yards a clip. As his averages would suggest, he is deceptively explosive and slippery considering his size. He manages to shrink down to slip through the smallest of holes. He is a guy who can gain yardage that isn’t there. He’s tough to bring down. He is extremely patient waiting for blocks to develop -insert Le’Veon Bell comparison here- Where Wilkins really shines compared to Hines and Mack though is in pass protection. Yes, he will whiff sometimes, but overall he was an extremely impressive pass blocker as a first time starter. GM Chris Ballard compared him to Matt Forte, and I think that that is a really solid comparison, in spite of it being pretty rich for a 5th rounder. Tall, tough, good blockers and pass catchers, with enough speed and power to succeed. He also reminds me of a San Francisco Frank Gore with his ability to be a gopher- disappear and pop up 5 yards beyond the DL. Gore was also an elite pass blocker and catcher, and his blocking is what kept him on the field so much even in Indy. I think pass blocking will earn him snaps right away, and his size, fluidity, vision, patience, and explosiveness will make it hard ot take him off. On a roster lacking any top dog, Wilkins kind of fits the mold of a starter here. He just has to take advantage of the opportunity. Some more gifs (thank you jaiox)

Pick 6.185 Deon Cain, Receiver, Clemson
Why receiver again?
Like I said before, we have no depth at receiver. Getting some depth at an extremely thin position with the chance to maybe be more is the perfect thing to do in the 6th round.
Why Cain?
The Colts viewed Cain as a second round talent according to Chris Ballard, they just had decided not to take any players with red flags in the first 5 rounds. (He was suspended for a failed drug test for Clemson’s 2015 playoff run) When he made it to the 6th, it was a no brainer for Ballard. While I don’t think I agree that he is a second round player, he does have a lot of talent. At 6’2 202, Cain ran a 4.43 40 yard dash, with an electric 6.71 3 cone drill, and these show up on tape. His wing span is a ridiculous 79 ⅝ inches, which is in the 93rd percentile for wideouts. That’s just 1 inch shorter than the draft’s lengthiest wingspan for a skill position player, Isaiah Oliver, and bigger than the draft’s top big WR, Courtland Sutton. So at just 21 years old, Cain is an athletic freak with a ton of potential. It’s easy to see why Ballard would take a shot on him at this point in the draft. He does have small hands at just under 9 inches, which does lead to some bad drops. But he is electric with the ball in his hands, which is rare from a lengthy 6’2 WR. He also has a rare ability to separate as a tall guy which makes him a dangerous deep threat. While he definitely shows flashes of using great body control and dominating, he needs to get more consistent at it.. While it could use more polishing, his route running is actually solid, which isn’t what you would normally expect from an athletic 6’2 late round pick. He also body catches sometimes (admittedly it was useful here to get inside positioning on the slant) presumably because he lacks total faith in his hands. So yes, he has things to work on, but hopefully the red flags are behind him and the team can help him take advantage of his physical talent. He shows flashes of special talent and the Colts are hoping to get the most out of him. He will have a great opportunity with such a fluid depth chart ahead of him.
Pick 7.221 Matthew Adams, Middle Linebacker, Houston
Why linebacker again?
As we’ve established, the Colts’ roster is kind of a wasteland at linebacker. As of now the surest starter seems to be 2nd round rookie Darius Leonard. The MIKE and SAM spots are wide open, so again, more bullets in the chamber to increase the odds of finding a surprise. Depth is needed there at the very least.
Why Adams?
Adams was the most unknown draft pick by the Colts with no doubt. He had a very quietly productive career at Houston, playing in each game a true freshman and sophomore (3 starts) before starting every game as an upperclassman and captain of the defense. He finished his career with 256 tackles and 21 for a loss, and became a fan favorite known for flying around the field and laying big hits. Not a ton else is out there about him. He is a thumper, a guy to run blitz primarily, with 0 career interceptions. He had only 6 missed tackles in 685 snaps as a senior, and generated 4 QB pressures on only 42 pass rushing snaps. The Colts went out of their way to list Adams as a middle linebacker, which they didn’t do with anyone else, so it is safe to assume that the Colts view him as a MIKE backer. He’s undersized at 6’ 229 but a very good athlete, like most of the Colts’ picks this year. At his pro day, Adams ran a 4.63 40, did 30 reps on the bench press (would have been first for linebackers at the combine) with a 10-2 broad jump(tied for 7th). So he is a good athlete, he has very good straight line speed and he uses that to shoot gaps into the backfield and to chase down runners sideline to sideline. He is a force to be reckoned with in short yardage situations thanks to his gap shooting ability and tremendous strength. Seriously, he is a beast in inches-to-go situations. So basically, Adams is an athletic thumper who doesn’t have the usual limitations those guys have in moving to sideline (see Mike McCray for a MIKE who is smart and tough but just doesn’t have the speed to be effective to the outside). He is pretty much a two down player at this point though, he’ll have to improve in coverage tremendously to change that. He will also definitely have to cut his teeth on special teams to make the roster. But for a hard nosed athlete with a motor like him that should come easily. While I would say it is unlikely he becomes more than depth, I think his athleticism and strength give him a higher ceiling than your typical late round thumper. And bonus, he’s ripped and already has necessary experience for being a Colt.
Pick 7.235 Zaire Franklin, Linebacker, Syracuse
Why linebacker again?
See Adams. Another shot at the target.
Why Franklin?
The reasoning for Franklin is also similar to that of Matthew Adams. He is a quietly productive, athletic, strong linebacker. He tore it up at his pro day with a 4.58 and 4.62 in the 40 yard dash, a 4.22 20 yard shuttle, 6.85 3 cone and a 38” vert. He added a 122” broad jump and 30 bench press reps, the same number as Adams and again better than any LB at the combine. When watching Franklin, you notice he is quite physical. Like Adams he was captain of the defense at Syracuse. He was asked to blitz a fair amount at Syracuse but wasn’t great at it. I actually thought he was surprisingly good at patrolling the middle of the field with his speed in coverage, and has deep speed to keep up with his man much longer than most linebackers can. Here he is not the one to make the play on the ball, but he keeps up with a WR running down the seam 40 yards downfield, a very impressive feat. He has great athleticism but will often overpursue or guess incorrectly and get overeager. He is a gap shooter but he needs to get better at diagnosing the play and who has the ball. He needs to keep his motor running, as there were too many times he could have been involved in the play but started to jog and leave it to his teammates. This is likely a big part of him falling to the 7th, as you want a linebacker with sideline to sideline speed to understand pursuit angles to create plays all over the field. He also tends to get washed out when he gets tangled up in the OL, and a lot of big plays went to one side of the field after Franklin got wrapped up on the other side. On both of these plays, Franklin commits to stopping the run on the right side, only for it to turn out to be a fake and leave the left side wide open for a TD run. So for now, Franklin seems to largely be an athletic project. His speed and coverage might be able to get him on the field early, but like Adams he will likely need to cut his teeth on special teams to make the roster. He also needs to work on keeping his motor running and taking a second to diagnose the run to avoid overcommitting. He does show flashes where he shoots the right gap, or shows off that elite strength, and in those times he looks dominant. But he is way too wildly inconsistent in taking on blockers at this point and will need his DL to keep him clean to be effective. His experience and production in a similar Tampa-2 style defense at Syracuse might be able to earn him reps at MIKE early on, however. While I doubt his ability to not be a detriment in run defense early on, especially with block eating defensive linemen Johnathan Hankins and Henry Anderson shipped off, I see exactly why the Colts made this pick. Production, athleticism, and rare key traits. Identifying these traits is a smart way to approach the late rounds. Also, apparently a team asked Matt Miller to keep quiet on Franklin to avoid him getting buzz and hopefully for him to fall to them as an undrafted free agent, so at least one other team quite likes the potential they see in Franklin as well. Nothing wrong with using a 7th on an 85th percentile athletic project at a major position of need.
That concludes analysis of the Colts’ 11 draft picks, phew! In terms of key UDFAs to keep an eye on-
-SCAR LB Skai Moore brings great coverage to the table, and that alone makes me think he makes the roster as a situational player right away. He gave up 0 TDs in his final 2 seasons while picking off 7 passes in that time. Yes, he is undersized, with questions about run defense and athleticism, but if you can do something rare at a high level you have a place in the NFL. I have heard it parroted a lot that he isn’t good in coverage and simply lucked into his 14 career interceptions, but I disagree strongly. I think when you put the tape on you do see a guy who knows how to cover.
-Syracuse WR Steve Ishmael broke Marvin Harrison’s records at SU, and brings quickness and size with an ability to play inside or out. He is a sleeper to make the roster and maybe even contribute with such a thin WR corps.
-Stony Brook DB Chris Cooper is a deep sleeper to keep an eye on. He came back from a freak accident that doctors worried would end his career to be a standout at Stony Brook. Cooper is the only pure safety signed as an UDFA(George Odum is a LB/S hybrid), and with the Colts having told Zaire that it was between him and a safety in the 7th, and no safeties were taken round 7, makes me think the Colts were close to drafting this kid, and I would have had no qualms about it. He really impressed me on film with his ranginess and toughness. He played the roles of deep safety and in the box safety equally well. He just makes plays. I would give the whole highlight reel a watch, it is really impressive. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TOo2BkCzkas
-Arkansas CB Henre’ Toliver is looking at a roster with a ton of uncertainty at his position, and he could easily earn his way onto the roster and the field. He had 4 good years at Arkansas including shutting down Julio Jones as a frosh. Has experience, production, and size.

Defending the Draft 2018: Indianapolis Colts

Pick 1.6 Quenton Nelson, Guard, Notre Dame
Why guard?
I’m sure most people know that offensive line has been a problem for the Colts for decades at this point. They have especially struggled drafting interior linemen in the mid to late rounds, where other teams often find starters. Entering the offseason, guard was one of the Colts’ biggest needs with their roster only having guys like Jeremy Vujnovich, Mark Glowinski, and other players who had no business starting. Mewhort was then brought back for cheap, which could be great if he can return to the form he was at prior to injuries. Matt Slauson was also signed and was penciled in as the starter heading into the draft. Drafting Nelson here allows Slauson to be a great 6th man who can play any interior spot. This is all about protecting Luck right now. Colts fans, and finally the front office, have had enough of drafting projects, and wanted to make a pick that will shore up the offensive line right now.
Why Nelson?
For those of you unaware, Quenton Nelson is one of the best guard prospects to come out of the draft in a long time. I know that with past names like Chance Warmack, Jonathan Cooper, and Greg Robinson(although he was seen as an eventual tackle) it seems like that is said every other year about some bust. So what makes Big Q different? Warmack struggled with footwork and pass protection, Cooper was too finesse and just gets pushed around, and Greg Robinson looked like Tarzan and played like Jane, with all of the physical attributes and none of the mental ones, or the nastiness. Quenton Nelson combines the best traits of these prospects and has really none of the weaknesses. That is why you are seeing a guard with no college tackle experience going 6th overall. Nelson has elite strength, athleticism, work ethic, footwork, and a great mental understanding of the game combined with a mean streak. He is a road grader in the running game, a large reason why Josh Adams was a borderline Heisman candidate and wasn’t even drafted this year. He also was a stalwart in pass protection, allowing only 5 pressures the entire year in 411 pass blocking snaps. In the eyes of the Colts and many others, he is a special and rare talent, and hopefully a plug and play starter at LG for years to come.

Pick 2.36 Darius Leonard, Will Linebacker, South Carolina State
Why linebacker?
Linebacker is the biggest need on the Colts roster. It was assumed by many that the Colts would add at least one and maybe two starters there in free agency, and Anthony Hitchens was seen as an eventuality, with us having such a need there, lots of money, and having his LB coach from Dallas as our new DC. None of this came to fruition as the Colts chose to largely shun free agency, handing out only a few small deals and even cutting Johnathan Hankins, last year's biggest signing and star of a surprisingly good Colts run defense, with the 8th best YPC allowed at 3.9 YPC. Many Colts fans were disappointed by this approach, but there was no way to fill all of our holes in one offseason, so the FO has decided to use that money later to push the Colts over the hump. While I was very surprised and in some cases disappointed, I do think going young and athletic while preparing for the ability to spend a lot of money in the future after stockpiling young players makes the most sense for the long term. So, we entered the draft with really no one on roster who has any business starting. So linebacker early was a no brainer.
Why Leonard?
The Colts are targeting speed and length in their new defense, and Leonard fits that perfectly. At 6’2 234, he has 10 ¼ inch hands (90th percentile for off ball linebackers), 34 ⅜ inch arms (96th percentile), and a 82 ⅛ inch wingspan (97th percentile). His listed 4.7 40 time(he was injured during the run) is not at all representative of his ranginess and athleticism. Leonard is a guy who is always around the ball, always making plays, and [moving like a safety.]https://gfycat.com/agilearidfly) He has very impressive block shedding skills for a small school player, and he easily runs down players sideline to sideline. He was also a very capable player off the edge in college, although he relied on his speed there and that won't work for him as well in the pros. He can also deliver some big hits. But where he will most improve the Colts is in coverage. His length and speed make him very dangerous both in zone coverage over the middle and man coverage with backs and tight ends. The Colts have lacked speed and coverage ability in their linebackers for a long time, and I think his coverage ability is a big reason we drafted him top 40. Leonard will slide into the WILL linebacker role from day 1 and he is the only linebacker on roster I am confident will start. He fits what this team wants perfectly, and he has a chip on his shoulder driving him to greatness from being rejected by his dream school in Clemson and having been doubted so much. He was the vocal leader of the defense at SC State, 2 time conference defensive player of the year, and has a motor that keeps running, and the Colts are hoping he can step up and be a leader in this young locker room right away. It might take some time to adjust to the pro game, but I think Leonard will be a very good do-it-all linebacker for the Colts.
Pick 2.37 Braden Smith, Guard, Auburn
Why guard again?
This is about doubling down on offensive line investments to make sure we have secured the future of our franchise, Luck. A great offensive line requires depth, and Nelson and Smith will help that for the interior offensive line tremendously. It is worth noting that Smith can play tackle in a pinch, but he is definitely better suited as a guard. The Colts haven’t had consistent guard play for years, and going Nelson and Smith back to back will give us that, and help Luck directly and indirectly (by helping the run game) greatly.
Why Smith?
I’ll let the man who chose him tell you. "(Smith) was the last guard that we thought was a starting-level guard," Colts general manager Chris Ballard said. "And we wanted to make sure we upped the competition level on the O-line and added some depth. And we think we did that, without question.” "I think he's going to be a heck of a player for us long-term. Pairing him with Nelson gives us two young guards going forward that can really help set the depth of the pocket and really help in our run game." "If you remember last year, we were having to pick guys off the street, and they're starting," Ballard said, "and I didn't want to go through that again. We need depth. If I learned anything from Andy Reid: O-line, O-line, O-line. That wins. That wins in December and January. When you have a good O-line/D-line, that wins." Braden is probably considered the favorite to start at RG, but if Mewhort is healthy and gets back to that level he was at previously, he would absolutely win the job. Mewhort seems to not be an option at RT after the badly failed experiment of putting him there a couple years ago. Whoever starts, the other will be an important depth piece. Another reason to think Smith will start is that Mewhort arguably has better positional versatility with experience at literally every OL spot over the years, and would be a valuable part of the OL platoon along with the starters and Matt Slauson and a few others. The hope is that this can help push this line over the top, although RT is still a big question mark. Some tape:
He’s smart, here he helps by popping the DE before taking on and stopping his man, the DT.
He’s powerful. Here he completely blows back his man, a 312 pound senior DT.
He’s athletic. The more you watch the more he seems like Nelson lite. Watch him pull across the pocket to crush the defender and buy his QB time.
Another
Here he blocks two men, and is the only offensive lineman to stand strong at the line of scrimmage as well.
Another!
I think Braden is a great pick, and could be a day 1 starter to create a terrific young interior of Nelson-Kelly-Smith.
Pick 2.52 Kemoko Turay, Edge rusher, Rutgers
Why edge?
When the offseason began, edge was an overblown need for the Colts. Many analysts thought it was our biggest need, and that’s why the initial talk was all Chubb to Indy. But edge was never as desolate as linebacker or offensive line, with Jabaal Sheard quietly dominating all of last year, John Simon and last year’s disappointing but very athletic 3rd round pick Tarell Basham both moving there. While there would certainly have been a spot for Chubb opposite Sheard, it wasn’t our top need, but for bolstering the pass rush now, and securing the position for the future, more players there were definitely needed.
Why Turay?
Turay is a perfect fit as a high upside, uber athletic, underutilized pass rusher. Turay was extremely productive in limited pass rush snaps at Rutgers. According to Pro Football Focus, “On only 548 career rushes in four years (a season’s worth for some), Turay notched an incredible 16 sacks, 24 QB hits and 70 hurries.” A Colts scout said they had Turay with 110 QB pressures, Landry with 138, and Chubb 144. So numbers wise he was not far behind the others, and sometimes even ahead, despite having half or less of the pass rushing snaps in his career. What stands out about Turay on tape is his insane bend and balance off the edge. He uses that bend along with his length (6’5) and speed (4.65 40 with a tweaked hamstring) to blow past opposing offensive tackles. and disrupt the QB. Even when he doesn’t get the sack, Turay is often disrupting the passing game by making the QB uncomfortable. Where Turay is quite different than your usual athletic developmental edge rusher is that he is already a good run defender. He does a good job of setting the edge and manages to play disciplined and with a high motor, without letting himself become completely absorbed in trying to get the sack. Turay is a guy I will admit I knew very little about before the Colts took him, but in my opinion his tape and potential are insane. And bonus Turay gifs.

Pick 2.64 Tyquan Lewis, Defensive end, Ohio State
Why defensive end again?
I list Tyquan as a DE and Turay as EDGE for 2 reasons. 1- Lewis can slide inside, whereas if Turay were to have a secondary position in our new 4-3 it would probably be OLB, not DT. And 2- that is how the Colts officially listed them on draft day, potentially for the same reason. That being said, I think the reason we took Lewis here is the same reason we signed Denico Autry in free agency. Pass rush boost and the versatility to rush the passer from anywhere. I wouldn’t be surprised if the passing down defense features both Autry and Lewis as DTs. Guys with versatility and key traits like pass rush ability are extremely valuable depth. The Eagles won this year with a very strong rotation on both sides of the trenches, and the Colts look to be emulating that strategy.
Why Lewis?
For many Colts fans, this was, seemingly, one of the most underwhelming pick of the draft. Trading up into the second for a guy with average athleticism who wasn’t on the radar will do that. But even if Lewis isn’t a future starter, I am sure he will be valuable to his team from day 1 for, as mentioned before, his versatility and pass rush prowess. He also might not be an elite athlete like many or most of the Colts’ picks this year, but he makes up for that with a motor that is constantly running. He also has very good, although inconsistent, hand usage, able to strike opposing linemen with powerful blows and take advantage of a quickness mismatch (Lewis is the third rusher from the top here) when rushing inside. It is also worth noting that while he isn’t an amazing athlete, he’s far from a bad one too. He has very good straight line speed and acceleration, it is in his short area agility that he is underwhelming. While Lewis is a very talented pass rusher, he is an average at best run stopper, and unequipped to be a full time interior rusher. He has flashes against the run thanks to his hand usage and motor, but he overall not great at it. Overall, I would call consistency snap to snap his main flaw, although his consistency year-to-year at Ohio State was very good. In his final 2 seasons, Tyquan generated 35 combined sacks and hits from off the edge or inside. If Lewis can work on being more consistent, he has shown the ability to dominate his opponents. But regardless of if he ever reaches his ceiling, Lewis will be a valuable contributor as a part of the defensive line platoon from year 1.
Pick 4.104 Nyheim Hines, Running back, NC State
Why running back?
Running back was another obvious position of need heading into the draft. Last year’s starter Frank Gore has returned to Miami, and the Colts were left with last years 4th rounder Marlon Mack, Robert Turbin, and Christine Michael. Many see Mack as not having the ability to be the lead back. Turbin has been very good for the Colts as a situation short yardage runner but has never shown top back ability, and Christine Michael is mostly a known quantity as an okay RB with elite measurables. Perpetually underwhelming Matt Jones was in the mix too but was cut recently. So at the very least the Colts needed to add some more options to the stable to run the backfield by committee.
Why Hines?
Most fans pencilled in more powerful backs like Derrius Guice or Nick Chubb, or at least a back with the frame to add that to his game like Saquon or Royce Freeman as picks to serve as the thunder to Mack’s lightning. But while it is traditional to run a power back/scat back combo, it is not necessary to execute a proper RBBC. Take a look at Atlanta with Devonta Freeman, who has some power but is certainly more reliant on speed, and Tevin Coleman, as one of the league’s most dangerous RB duos. So I like the decision to take presumably the most talented player there on their board and let things work themselves out. When we first picked him, I was happy with the value, but did think he reminded me a lot of Marlon Mack. After watching more of him, I really think they do have a lot in common. Hines has better speed and receiving ability, Mack is more agile, but they have many similarities on tape. One of the areas he reminds me of Mack is his tremendous balance, that lets him keep runs alive when other backs would have fallen down. He and Mack both have a similar running style relying on speed and playing like their hair is on fire. This will lead to them overrunning lanes and running into blockers, but it is also usually to thank for the big runs they bust off. I would call it the RB equivalent of having a nonstop motor, and while it will lead to some bad outcomes, I ultimately view it as a positive, and vision can be worked on. Hines shows inconsistent vision, but he looks utterly dominant when he hits the right holes. But he will too often looks to bounce it outside for the big play (again, like Mack). He was stopped for a loss on about 20% of his runs, and Mack was tackled for a loss at the second highest pace in the league last year. Hines’ big calling card is his elite top speed and acceleration, but comparatively he is a bit lacking laterally. He is very elusive and slippery. He has a very good juke, and can bust out a dirty spin or two. He brings great return ability to the table (this was him as a freshman, when he was deemed too electric to redshirt by the coaches). Nyheim’s other calling card is his tremendous receiving ability, he can split out wide or in the slot as well. He runs a large route tree. Thanks to his skills as a receiver and return man, Hines’ floor is still that of a contributor, and that alone makes him a good 4th round pick in my eyes. He does not have power like many expected the Colts’ pick at RB to have, it just isn’t a part of his game at all. He is an inconsistent pass blocker just because of his size, but he is willing to go out there and give his all to protect the QB and that is a plus. Plus character, he will be a fan favorite and seems like a smart and nice kid. He is an unselfish player who will do what is needed of him, he manned the gunner spot on special teams at NC State. Because of a lack of power and vision thats a WIP, if his line is bad he won’t be able to do much. When his line is overwhelmed he isn’t often going to be able to dance his way out of the backfield for yardage. Ultimately, I think Hines will be getting consistent touches right away as a part of a backfield with no real leader. He has insane acceleration, and if the Colts’ OL is as improved as many think it is, he could make a real impact as a rookie. Despite similarities to Marlon Mack, I actually think Nyheim is the more well rounded player. He is better in the receiving game and while neither are good blockers, Hines tries harder at it at least. Hines was picked because he is a rare prospect that has a high ceiling and a high floor. Maybe he becomes the Alvin Kamara of 2018, maybe he’s just Tarik Cohen. Taking someone who will help right away, but that might prove to be more, is a perfect approach heading into a year where we are unlikely to compete but do need some help right now.
Pick 5.159 Daurice Fountain, Receiver, Northern Iowa
Why receiver?
The Colts haven’t had a major need at receiver seemingly since they first drafted Luck and TY back in 2012, when Reggie turned out to still have it and TY was a surprise superstar. The Colts tried to anticipate a need there with the much maligned decision to draft Dorsett in the first round, which failed and now leaves the Colts with a barebones receiving corps. TY is still here and still being a freak. Chester Rogers is a homegrown UDFA from Grambling who has been growing on the bench and that many believe in as a breakout candidate. Personally I would be fine having him as a third WR for this year to see what he’s got. But they were essentially the only 2 WRs with any experience on roster, with Donte Moncrief leaving for Jacksonville. Ryan Grant was an under the radar value signing that I loved, fresh off of a fishy failed physical foiling his newfound fortune(say that five times fast), the Colts got him for a meager 1 year deal. Grant brings quickness, route running, and solid hands that make him a solid #2 or a great #3 in my opinion, and I think assuming Luck is healthy he is another guy due to break out. But again, even with these three solid guys the depth here is atrocious. Furthermore, non of Rogers, TY, or Grant are over 6 feet (Rogers is listed as 6’1 but official measurements put him around 6’-5’11) or the kind of guys who are going to jump over you for a catch or win with physicality. All three guys are smaller, quick, route runner types. So a need for receivers for depth, and especially bigger contested catch guys, was obvious.
Why Fountain?
Fountain perfectly fits what the Colts were lacking at WR. Physical, tall, vertical, contested catch maker. Here is a video of him doing a vertical jump a full inch higher than anyone at the combine. https://twitter.com/UNIFootball/status/978019771038957568 His 42½" vertical and his 134" broad jump are both 98th(!) percentile for wideouts. He is not 6’5 like some of these types of guys, but he is every inch of 6’1, and his insane vertical jumping ability helps that tremendously as well. The Colts will hope he can fill a role as a go up and get it, redzone threat kind of guy. While he doesn’t run the crispest intermediate routes, he is a deep threat largely because of his ability to fool defenders with a double move, and also because of his ability to keep defenders at arm’s length. He doesn’t have TY’s speed, but this is the same way TY gets wide open behind defenses. And while he isn’t your quick route runner, he did run a 4.46 40 at his pro day, and he can move for a bigger guy.. He is explosive, he was a state championship hurdler and long jumper in high school. He has impeccable body control which is huge for a receiver whose game is winning contested balls. He makes acrobatic catches and mid-air body adjustments seem much easier than they are. Fountain has a great opportunity here with such a wide open depth chart, so don’t be surprised to see him catching some TDs come fall.
Pick 5.169 Jordan Wilkins, Running Back, Ole Miss
Why running back again?
The way I see it, if you’re lacking a standout player at a position there’s nothing wrong with taking another shot at the target. So basically, the same as Hines. We don’t have an obvious starter on roster at RB, so it’s a good position for a 5th rounder to potentially earn playing time. Running back especially is a position you can realistically find a day 1 starter, or at least a very quality player. Jordan Howard, Karlos Williams, and Jay Ajayi are just a few recent examples. Also, the Colts seem to be trying to imitate the Eagle’s approach of using like 4 guys as a committee, and without any bellcows like Ajayi or Blount the Colts need more guys there. Competition.
Why Wilkins?
On the surface this pick seemed confusing. LB is still hurting for talent, RT needs help, pass rush and interior defenders are lacking. So why take another RB when we already have a bunch of okay not great options there? Well, for one, as I said earlier, with no clear top guy the Colts can use options there. And also I think Wilkins is surprisingly polished for a 5th rounder and 1 year starter. Wilkins has very good size for the position (6’1 216), and is a very fluid runner with good ballcarrier vision. He is what I would consider a one cut back. He won’t run a 4.3 or show overwhelming power every play, but he can get away from you or run you over if need be. He was suspended for the season in 2016 for academic reasons apparently related to an administrative mix up. I am not exactly sure what that means, but apparently it had Wilkins angry and ready to go for 2017-18. Ole Miss threw the ball over 36 times per game in 2017, and Ole Miss QBs combined for over 100 rushes themselves, so Wilkins didn’t get the amount of carries he likely would have elsewhere. However in the 155 carries he was given, he gained 1011 yards for a gaudy 6.5 yards per carry average. He also caught 26 passes for 241 yards, 9.3 yards a clip. As his averages would suggest, he is deceptively explosive and slippery considering his size. He manages to shrink down to slip through the smallest of holes. He is a guy who can gain yardage that isn’t there. He’s tough to bring down. He is extremely patient waiting for blocks to develop -insert Le’Veon Bell comparison here- Where Wilkins really shines compared to Hines and Mack though is in pass protection. Yes, he will whiff sometimes, but overall he was an extremely impressive pass blocker as a first time starter. GM Chris Ballard compared him to Matt Forte, and I think that that is a really solid comparison, in spite of it being pretty rich for a 5th rounder. Tall, tough, good blockers and pass catchers, with enough speed and power to succeed. He also reminds me of a San Francisco Frank Gore with his ability to be a gopher- disappear and pop up 5 yards beyond the DL. Gore was also an elite pass blocker and catcher, and his blocking is what kept him on the field so much even in Indy. I think pass blocking will earn him snaps right away, and his size, fluidity, vision, patience, and explosiveness will make it hard ot take him off. On a roster lacking any top dog, Wilkins kind of fits the mold of a starter here. He just has to take advantage of the opportunity. Some more gifs (thank you jaiox)

Pick 6.185 Deon Cain, Receiver, Clemson
Why receiver again?
Like I said before, we have no depth at receiver. Getting some depth at an extremely thin position with the chance to maybe be more is the perfect thing to do in the 6th round.
Why Cain?
The Colts viewed Cain as a second round talent according to Chris Ballard, they just had decided not to take any players with red flags in the first 5 rounds. (He was suspended for a failed drug test for Clemson’s 2015 playoff run) When he made it to the 6th, it was a no brainer for Ballard. While I don’t think I agree that he is a second round player, he does have a lot of talent. At 6’2 202, Cain ran a 4.43 40 yard dash, with an electric 6.71 3 cone drill, and these show up on tape. His wing span is a ridiculous 79 ⅝ inches, which is in the 93rd percentile for wideouts. That’s just 1 inch shorter than the draft’s lengthiest wingspan for a skill position player, Isaiah Oliver, and bigger than the draft’s top big WR, Courtland Sutton. So at just 21 years old, Cain is an athletic freak with a ton of potential. It’s easy to see why Ballard would take a shot on him at this point in the draft. He does have small hands at just under 9 inches, which does lead to some bad drops. But he is electric with the ball in his hands, which is rare from a lengthy 6’2 WR. He also has a rare ability to separate as a tall guy which makes him a dangerous deep threat. While he definitely shows flashes of using great body control and dominating, he needs to get more consistent at it.. While it could use more polishing, his route running is actually solid, which isn’t what you would normally expect from an athletic 6’2 late round pick. He also body catches sometimes (admittedly it was useful here to get inside positioning on the slant) presumably because he lacks total faith in his hands. So yes, he has things to work on, but hopefully the red flags are behind him and the team can help him take advantage of his physical talent. He shows flashes of special talent and the Colts are hoping to get the most out of him. He will have a great opportunity with such a fluid depth chart ahead of him.
Pick 7.221 Matthew Adams, Middle Linebacker, Houston
Why linebacker again?
As we’ve established, the Colts’ roster is kind of a wasteland at linebacker. As of now the surest starter seems to be 2nd round rookie Darius Leonard. The MIKE and SAM spots are wide open, so again, more bullets in the chamber to increase the odds of finding a surprise. Depth is needed there at the very least.
Why Adams?
Adams was the most unknown draft pick by the Colts with no doubt. He had a very quietly productive career at Houston, playing in each game a true freshman and sophomore (3 starts) before starting every game as an upperclassman and captain of the defense. He finished his career with 256 tackles and 21 for a loss, and became a fan favorite known for flying around the field and laying big hits. Not a ton else is out there about him. He is a thumper, a guy to run blitz primarily, with 0 career interceptions. He had only 6 missed tackles in 685 snaps as a senior, and generated 4 QB pressures on only 42 pass rushing snaps. The Colts went out of their way to list Adams as a middle linebacker, which they didn’t do with anyone else, so it is safe to assume that the Colts view him as a MIKE backer. He’s undersized at 6’ 229 but a very good athlete, like most of the Colts’ picks this year. At his pro day, Adams ran a 4.63 40, did 30 reps on the bench press (would have been first for linebackers at the combine) with a 10-2 broad jump(tied for 7th). So he is a good athlete, he has very good straight line speed and he uses that to shoot gaps into the backfield and to chase down runners sideline to sideline. He is a force to be reckoned with in short yardage situations thanks to his gap shooting ability and tremendous strength. Seriously, he is a beast in inches-to-go situations. So basically, Adams is an athletic thumper who doesn’t have the usual limitations those guys have in moving to sideline (see Mike McCray for a MIKE who is smart and tough but just doesn’t have the speed to be effective to the outside). He is pretty much a two down player at this point though, he’ll have to improve in coverage tremendously to change that. He will also definitely have to cut his teeth on special teams to make the roster. But for a hard nosed athlete with a motor like him that should come easily. While I would say it is unlikely he becomes more than depth, I think his athleticism and strength give him a higher ceiling than your typical late round thumper. And bonus, he’s ripped and already has necessary experience for being a Colt.
Pick 7.235 Zaire Franklin, Linebacker, Syracuse
Why linebacker again?
See Adams. Another shot at the target.
Why Franklin?
The reasoning for Franklin is also similar to that of Matthew Adams. He is a quietly productive, athletic, strong linebacker. He tore it up at his pro day with a 4.58 and 4.62 in the 40 yard dash, a 4.22 20 yard shuttle, 6.85 3 cone and a 38” vert. He added a 122” broad jump and 30 bench press reps, the same number as Adams and again better than any LB at the combine. When watching Franklin, you notice he is quite physical. Like Adams he was captain of the defense at Syracuse. He was asked to blitz a fair amount at Syracuse but wasn’t great at it. I actually thought he was surprisingly good at patrolling the middle of the field with his speed in coverage, and has deep speed to keep up with his man much longer than most linebackers can. Here he is not the one to make the play on the ball, but he keeps up with a WR running down the seam 40 yards downfield, a very impressive feat. He has great athleticism but will often overpursue or guess incorrectly and get overeager. He is a gap shooter but he needs to get better at diagnosing the play and who has the ball. He needs to keep his motor running, as there were too many times he could have been involved in the play but started to jog and leave it to his teammates. This is likely a big part of him falling to the 7th, as you want a linebacker with sideline to sideline speed to understand pursuit angles to create plays all over the field. He also tends to get washed out when he gets tangled up in the OL, and a lot of big plays went to one side of the field after Franklin got wrapped up on the other side. On both of these plays, Franklin commits to stopping the run on the right side, only for it to turn out to be a fake and leave the left side wide open for a TD run. So for now, Franklin seems to largely be an athletic project. His speed and coverage might be able to get him on the field early, but like Adams he will likely need to cut his teeth on special teams to make the roster. He also needs to work on keeping his motor running and taking a second to diagnose the run to avoid overcommitting. He does show flashes where he shoots the right gap, or shows off that elite strength, and in those times he looks dominant. But he is way too wildly inconsistent in taking on blockers at this point and will need his DL to keep him clean to be effective. His experience and production in a similar Tampa-2 style defense at Syracuse might be able to earn him reps at MIKE early on, however. While I doubt his ability to not be a detriment in run defense early on, especially with block eating defensive linemen Johnathan Hankins and Henry Anderson shipped off, I see exactly why the Colts made this pick. Production, athleticism, and rare key traits. Identifying these traits is a smart way to approach the late rounds. Also, apparently a team asked Matt Miller to keep quiet on Franklin to avoid him getting buzz and hopefully for him to fall to them as an undrafted free agent, so at least one other team quite likes the potential they see in Franklin as well. Nothing wrong with using a 7th on an 85th percentile athletic project at a major position of need.
That concludes analysis of the Colts’ 11 draft picks, phew! In terms of key UDFAs to keep an eye on-
-SCAR LB Skai Moore brings great coverage to the table, and that alone makes me think he makes the roster as a situational player right away. He gave up 0 TDs in his final 2 seasons while picking off 7 passes in that time. Yes, he is undersized, with questions about run defense and athleticism, but if you can do something rare at a high level you have a place in the NFL. I have heard it parroted a lot that he isn’t good in coverage and simply lucked into his 14 career interceptions, but I disagree strongly. I think when you put the tape on you do see a guy who knows how to cover.
-Syracuse WR Steve Ishmael broke Marvin Harrison’s records at SU, and brings quickness and size with an ability to play inside or out. He is a sleeper to make the roster and maybe even contribute with such a thin WR corps.
-Stony Brook DB Chris Cooper is a deep sleeper to keep an eye on. He came back from a freak accident that doctors worried would end his career to be a standout at Stony Brook. Cooper is the only pure safety signed as an UDFA(George Odum is a LB/S hybrid), and with the Colts having told Zaire that it was between him and a safety in the 7th, and no safeties were taken round 7, makes me think the Colts were close to drafting this kid, and I would have had no qualms about it. He really impressed me on film with his ranginess and toughness. He played the roles of deep safety and in the box safety equally well. He just makes plays. I would give the whole highlight reel a watch, it is really impressive. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TOo2BkCzkas
-Arkansas CB Henre’ Toliver is looking at a roster with a ton of uncertainty at his position, and he could easily earn his way onto the roster and the field. He had 4 good years at Arkansas including shutting down Julio Jones as a frosh. Has experience, production, and size.

#40 - K.J. Wright - 4-3 OLB - Seattle Seahawks - Previous Rank: 68

Check out K.J. Wright’s stats here!
Written by Super_Nerd92
When one asks which Seahawks player is the most underrated, KJ Wright is the frequent response. Seattle's defense doesn't lack for talent and many are not afraid to speak their minds and get media recognition. By contrast, you don't hear much from Wright, who is quietly one of the best coverage linebackers in the NFL and a key contributor to an elite defense. Luckily, his position on the list this year shows that we can drop the underrated label--/NFL knows all about the guy by now.
Both Wagner and Wright needed to step up last season with Bruce Irvin leaving for the Raiders, leaving a rotation of unproven guys at the SS OLB spot. Both guys delivered career-best seasons. Wright has racked up 100 tackles a season for the past 3 seasons, but the total rose to a career-high 126 last season. He earned a well-deserved Pro Bowl for the first time in his career. He missed just 5 tackles all season according to PFF, who gave him the "highest tackling efficiency" among 4-3 OLBs.
Wright has always been good in coverage, and last season he broke up 5 passes--tying his career high. Where he really stepped up was at the line of scrimmage. His 10 stuffs and 4 sacks are both career highs, and came despite star DE Michael Bennett being absent for 5 games. When the Seahawks needed that extra pressure at the line, he delivered. The always-versatile linebacker well deserves the #40 spot.

#39 - Cameron Jordan - 4-3 DE - New Orleans Saints - Previous Rank: 67

Check out Cameron Jordan’s stats here!
Written by Bouzal
Lots of things have be used to describe the Saints defense the last few years. "Dumpster fire" comes to mind. As does "train wreck," "laughing stock," and "third term abortion." However, none of those can be used to describe Cam Jordan, who has played at a borderline elite level for years now and has been criminally unnoticed. Snubbed from the NFL Top 100 this year, he is finally getting some respect here at 39. (Full disclosure, I had him at 26, but I'll take what I can get).
It is understandable why Jordan might be less noticeable than some other players. His numbers, straight up, don't necessarily make him stand out: he racked up only 7.5 sacks in a league where stats have unfairly become the barometer for good defensive end play among casual fans. But watch him on tape and take a look at some different numbers and you'll get a whole new story. He graded out as PFF's 3rd ranked edge defender with a 92.1 grade, and finished 2nd in the league in total pressures with a whopping 72. To add to that, he is a fierce run defender, and rarely allows a back to get to the outside. Jordan is also the team captain on defense and all accounts say he is a wonderful and fun member of the locker room. Plus, his hair game is and always has been utterly on point.
In summary, if Cam was on a member of a halfway decent defense, he would be constantly discussed as a top tier defensive end, and thankfully he is starting to get that recognition regardless. Let's hope this year the Saints can ascend and actually be that halfway decent defense.

#38 - Fletcher Cox - 4-3 DT - Philadelphia Eagles - Previous Rank: 26

Check out Fletcher Cox’s stats here! ERROR CARD! Our first! The sack numbers are wrong! Just imagine it says 6.5 instead of 2.5!
Written by MikeTysonChicken
Fletcher Cox followed up an excellent 2015 season with another excellent season to come in at 38th on the NFL Top 100 for 2016. Fresh off of a large contract extension, Fletcher Cox looked to feast on opposing offenses after changing to a one gap scheme that better suited his skill set. Cox was still an excellent force along the interior for the Eagles despite making 3 fewer sacks in 2016 (6.5) than in 2015 (9.5) - just ask the Steelers offensive line. True to his name, Cox is a fierce penetrator.
Cox is a Monster. At 310 pounds, Cox hustles and plays as hard as any player in the league. He plays with power and control to make even the best linemen in the league struggle. He draws so much attention along the interior of the line it still amazes me the plays he is able to make. Cox is disruptive and his 2016 is reflective of that.
Fletcher Cox finished as PFFs 5th rated interior defender, including finishing as their 5th best interior pass rusher. Additionally, Cox placed at 32 on the NFL1000 top players for 2016, including their 3rd rated defensive tackle. This isn’t a coincidence; Jim Schwartz’s defense is designed with Cox in mind. His defense allows a man of incredible strength and athletic ability to attack the QB each snap. Cox is dominant and the new defense allows him to make more of these plays. But his skillset isn’t limited to making plays. He is able to create for others as well. He also changes directions of plays on a regular basis. Cox is a cornerstone player for the franchise, something the organization has openly stated this offseason. The defense is built around what Cox can do. Considering Cox is only 26, that’s probably a wise thing to do.

#37 - Joey Bosa - 3-4 DE - San Diego Chargers - Previous Rank: N/R

Check out Joey Bosa’s stats here!
Written by milkchococurry
The 3rd overall pick in the 2016 draft did not start the season on the best foot. A needlessly protracted contract dispute and subsequent minor injuries kept Bosa out of the first 4 games of the season. The Chargers drafted Joey because they needed an impact player on the defensive front that could consistently mess with the opposing backfield, be it harassing opposing quarterbacks or decking a tailback behind the LOS.
He delivered.
In just 12 games, Bosa established himself as the cream of the pass-rushing crop of the 2016 draft and has all but completely placed himself in the NFL’s highest echelon of backfield haymakers. PFF graded him in the top 5 overall at his position and if you look at the numbers, you can see why. Bosa generated 59 quarterback pressures, tied with Von Miller for the most QB pressures in the first 12 games over the past decade. The easier stat to reference for Bosa is his 10.5 sacks on the season, but what is more notable is how he got to that number in so few snaps. For comparison, Khalil Mack managed to get 11 sacks on the season, but did it with 461 more snaps than Bosa took to get to 10.5. That’s kinda nuts.
Watching Bosa play last year was like watching a seasoned veteran at work. He doesn’t have the same purported athleticism as my personal pre-draft choice DeForest Buckner, but the motor never stopped for Bosa on any and every play he was on the field and the techniques he displayed with his hands (watch the video carefully) are…let’s just say he was difficult to counter. Just by his 2016 performance, you can pretty easily tell that Bosa has the potential to become one of the very best edge rushers the game has seen in a good while.
Oh, and by the way, Joey turned 22 years old yesterday (July 11th). Happy Belated Birthday Joey!

#36 - Ndamukong Suh - 4-3 DT - Miami Dolphins - Previous Rank: 36

Check out Ndamukong Suh’s stats here!
Written by BlindManBaldwin
Suuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuh
I might root for the orange and blue but I was born, raised, and live in the scarlet and cream. As such, Ndamukong Suh is one of my favorite players. His 2009 season (cough he was robbed of the Heisman cough) was what got me into football big time. The 2016 season was another in a long line of successful, dominating seasons for one of the best tackles in football.
Suh's stats don't tell the whole story. He does the grind-it-out, dirty work in the trenches. He eats up blocks so guys like Cameron Wake can dominate. He's been described as Mr. Everything for the Dolphins, with Vance Joseph saying he was the Dolphins' Von Miller. Suh was PFF's 2nd highest graded tackle for a 4-3 tackle. The Dolphins defense may not have ranked too high and struggle, but injuries and problems with their LB group really caused problems schematically for DC Vance Joseph. Suh, however, still played fantastically and was one of the defensive leaders on the first Dolphins team to make the playoffs since 2008. When he does make the direct sack, he still has a force unmatched by few in the NFL. I wouldn't want to get tackled by Suh. While the Dolphins lost their first playoff game, their future is bright with a great HC, a solid QB, some good pieces on offensive, and of course #93 anchoring their defense.
This one's for you, Suh! Thanks for making the best moment in my Husker life and still making great football moments in the big leagues!

#35 - Andrew Luck - QB - Indianapolis Colts - Previous Rank: N/R

Check out Andrew Luck’s stats here!
Written by jaysrule24
Beth,
As we prepare to begin a new campaign, it is time to evaluate our performance from the previous year’s offensive. While we did not win the number of battles we felt we were capable of winning, we were still far from the least effective battalion in the war. Although many of my soldiers struggled throughout the campaign, Lieutenant General Hilton and I had our best campaigns. 2016 was the most efficient operation of my career, despite fighting through a grievous shoulder wound the entire fall. I now eagerly await the beginning of our next offensive.
Warmest regards,
General Luck (Ed. Note: Click the link for the gif and stat breakdown. We had to get a General Luck in here, damnit. So damn good - MJP)

#34 - Greg Olsen - TE - Carolina Panthers - Previous Rank: 39

Check out Greg Olsen’s stats here!
Written by Bersinator
Another year, another 1,000-yard season for Greg Olsen. In a league surrounded by oft injured Tight Ends such as Tyler Eifert, Jordan Reed, and Rob Gronkowski, it's been proven that the best ability is availability. Greg Olsen has done exactly that, as he has not missed a start since 2011.
In 2016, Olsen became the first Tight End in NFL history to post three consecutive 1,000-yard seasons. The 3-time Pro Bowler put up at least 3 touchdowns in seasons. Seeing a theme here? That's a 1,000-yard season, touchdown, and Pro Bowl for each leg. As you may have already guessed, Greg Olsen views his three legs equally.
Greg Olsen may not be the fastest or most physically gifted player in the league, but he is one of the best at finding and exploiting gaps in the defense. Just look at this film breakdown of his 9 reception, 181-yard game against the Bucs. Credit to thehbrwhammer. We all know how great of a receiver Olsen has become, but one of his biggest criticisms has always been his blocking. While his run blocking is still not great, he has emerged as a top 10 pass blocking Tight End according to PFF with a 71.7 grade in that aspect (87.5 overall).
I thank the Bears every season for allowing Olsen to come to Carolina in what is probably the best trade in the Panthers 22-year history. He has been one of the top Tight Ends in the league these past few seasons and has been a perfect model of consistency. I look forward to another great season from G-Reg and despite getting up there in age, he seems to think he'll do just fine.

#33 - Sean Lee - 4-3 OLB - Dallas Cowboys - Previous Rank: 64

Check out Sean Lee’s stats here!
Written by Romosexua1
After having his first several seasons ended early due to injury, many wondered if Sean Lee would ever live up to his full potential. The back to back Cowboys tackle leader and 1st Team All-Pro linebacker has erased nearly all of those doubts, and jumped a whopping 31 spots from last year’s list.
With several key players being injured or suspended on defense, Lee needed to step up and play every role a linebacker could, and he excelled at all of them due to his incredibly high football IQ. It almost seems like he knows the offensive call before the offense does. Whether he is needed to drop back in coverage or blow up the run game he does it with ease. It's safe to say that he's the backbone of the defense, because even when his primary job is pass defense, he still plays sideline to sideline as if his only role was to stop a run
Simply put, Lee covers up the inconsistent mess that is the Dallas defensive line, and without him, it would be justified to be nervous about the Dallas defense next year. But fear not, as long as the General Lee keeps taking pressure off of the secondary, the sky's the limit for this young defense.

#32 - Brandon Graham - 4-3 DE - Philadelphia Eagles - Previous Rank: N/R

Check out Brandon Graham’s stats here!
Written by MikeTysonChicken
There is no Eagle I am more excited to see on this list than Brandon Graham and I am thrilled to see him at #32 here… suck it Earl Thomas!
I say that last bit in jest since it was common for such a long time to consistently compare the careers of Brandon Graham and Earl Thomas. For the unaware, the Eagles cut the ultimate fan favorite Brian Dawkins in 2008. What became immediately evident after this wildly unpopular move was the Eagles never had a replacement on the roster that was remotely capable of stepping into Dawkins shoes and play at a high level. That’s not a position that I would want to be in as a player. No matter what his replacements would do, they would always be compared to the legend that came before him. The bar was set really high and the Eagles did their best to consistently miss at the position. Enter the 2010 draft.
Everyone in Philadelphia wanted Earl Thomas since he had the talent to be a great safety and a true cornerstone player – which we were right about. Then Andy Reid does Andy Reid things and trades up for the “fastball” defensive end from Michigan with Earl Thomas on the board. And the rest is history.
It took a while for Graham to find his footing in Philadelphia and the franchise has since been rewarded with a 2016 performance that was as good as any you’ll find in the NFL from a defensive end. 2016 wasn’t really a breakout year for Graham, but it was the first year where he was in a place that would really allow him to shine. It took a scheme change to 3-4 and position change to OLB under Chip Kelly to revitalize Graham and eventually earn (and keep) his roster spot. Then it took a change back to 4-3 to allow Graham to shine. No matter where you stand on #EarlThomasGhazi, at the very least, choosing between Graham and Thomas is a difficult debate.
As for his play on the field, well, we can let the tape do the talking. Graham plays with power, leverage, and speed to consistently win on the edge in the NFL. He is smart and he blows plays up. He is relentless and he never gives up on a play. Oh, did I mention he plays with power?.
Graham finished as PFFs 2nd best Edge Defender behind only DPOY Khalil Mack. Additionally, Graham finished with 83 pressures on the season which was second only to Mack again. From the same source, Graham notched a pressure every 5.8 pass-rushing snaps. And before you get your boners in a twist about PFF, Graham finished second in pressures per Football Outsiders as well. While sacks are important, the ability to consistently affect offenses on a week to week basis is paramount to the success of the defense. Few were better than Graham at that in 2016. If Graham were able to raise his sack percentage to league average for 2016, he would have had double digits sacks and DPOY consideration. That’s not knocking other worthy candidates, just high praise for someone who’s worked his ass off to get it. I love Brandon Graham and he is very worthy of high praise.

#31 - Devin McCourty - New England Patriots - Previous Rank: 72

Check out Devin McCourty’s stats here!
Written by ward0630
The New England Patriots are an imposing defense from the first line of defense to the last. That last line of defense is Devin McCourty..
McCourty has been one of the most dependable and consistently great Patriot defenders over the last six years. That’s why he’s been a co-captain of the team six times since he was drafted in 2010, why he earned his second pro-bowl nod this past season, and why he was named a second team all-pro.
As the leader of a New England secondary that ranked third in the NBA NFL (Ed. Note: C'mon Ward! - MJP) according to Pro Football Focus, McCourty earned the highest run coverage grade of any member of the secondary and played over one thousand snaps during the regular season. He totaled fourteen postseason tackles, one pass breakup, and one beautiful interception.
Although not known as an enforcer, some of the hits McCourty delivered in the clutch this past season were remarkable. Just look at this game-sealing slam in week 15. With the Dolphins threatening to cut the lead to one possession midway through the fourth, McCourty comes up big again.
Some players are on this list because their performances this past season exceeded what we expected of them. Devin McCourty is not one of those players, because as anyone who has watched Patriots football for the last six years knows, McCourty has put in top 100 performances every season of his career.
Now that the players are known, it’s time to tell us if you think they’ll be ranked higher, lower or about the same on next year’s list.

Draft Recap

DRAFT RECAP
AUSTIN Grade- GAWD WORKS IN MYSTERIOUS WAYS
Austin’s success against all odds is a trademark of Marshall’s Comedy Club. The GAWD turns water into wine every single year. (2014) Rob Gronkowski has never been healthy? If he’s on the GAWD SQWAD he will. (2015) Joseph Randle is the Cowboys starting RB? Darren McFadden has the year of his life and, oh by the way, he’ll pick up the MVP of the league in the 10th. (2016) First pick. During the 2017 draft I thought there was no way Austin would have a good team. I should know better by now. When Austin proclaimed that Dak will go down in Week 2 and Tony will take the Cowboys to the Super Bowl, I shouldn’t have laughed. It is written. Mark Ingram will wrestle the starting job away from the bone-crushing handshake of America’s Most Famous Childbeater. DeShone Kizer will develop an amazing relationship with slot receiver Shit Penis Junior. Dan Bailey and Jason Witten will run a series of unstoppable trick plays. This GAWD team is pretty good and it pisses me off so much. Dan Bailey in the third round and his team will STILL easily pound Chandler’s. Then to rub it in, he served us pancakes after. Game, blouses.
CHASE Grade- 3 sprain
What happens when the worst team name gets the best draft pick? Welcome one and all to the wonderful roller coaster that is Chase’s fantasy team! David Johnson is great. David Johnson wants the ball as much as possible. This is great! It’s later on when Chase wishes he were in his auto-drafting days. Let’s start with some guys who could get cut!! LeGarrette Blount may not make the Eagles , and even if he does the big TD’d wonder is due for some serious regression. Doug Martin is already suspended for taking performance enhancing drugs that got him benched behind the JizzRod. Now for the injury portion of the show! Sammy Watkins is on a mission to find out how Jared Goff can destroy the value of another great talent. Good thing he just had his second foot surgery! Rob Gronkowski sped up his recovery so he could be at Wrestlemania, the perfect cover up for an “injury” to keep him at 69 TDs forever. Jameis Winston forces passes as often as he forces himself on women, except the passes don’t settle out of court. Jeremy Hill is a third string RB who is already hurt. Ameer Abdullah is only still in the league because his name is first in the phone book. Bye weeks will hit this team HARD.
DUNCAN Grade- N/A faked death
Duncan’s team is fine because he auto drafted. It’s safe to assume if Duncan crawled out of his doom bunker for an hour to click a few names he would finally collect the whole set of Arizona Cardinals he’s been wanting for years! Instead he’s left with 34 year old Danny Woodhead on the only team openly racist enough to announce they didn’t want Kaepernick for non-football reasons, a WR pretending to play RB, and two Eagle pass catchers who will be sure if one has a good game the other won’t. Odell Beckham Jr. faked playing hurt during the preseason and no one on the Giants even went to help. They all hate him so much. Is it Duncan’s worst team ever? No! Is there still time to fix that? Plenty!
CHANDLER Grade- MELVIN’d
The fuck is this team? Let’s get something straight about Melvin Gordon last year, even when he was “good” he was not good. He only averaged 3.9 YPC and piled almost all of his touchdown work in the first 4 weeks of the season. In weeks 5-17 he scored all of 4 touchdowns. I’m sure there’s not a single player picked later that round you would want ahead of him at the end of the year. The Ginger Cannon will give you that sweet 14 points a game that makes him look really nice at the end of the year totals, without actually winning you any weeks. Jonathan Stewart was replaced by a white guy. Demaryius Thomas needs Peyton Manning like his mom needed Obama to commute her drug sentence. Allen Robinson is already fed up with Blake Bortles and that shit’s not getting fixed. John Brown’s blood already quit on him. With 6 games on the bench Zeke has plenty of time to go to get popped for his molly addiction. Spencer Ware is already out for the season (great pick!), Jordan Matthews has a piece of bone floating around in his chest, and Breshad Perriman has only caught 4 passes in a game once in his career. If this team isn’t in Comedy Contention I don’t know who is.
DAVID Grade- Actually likes comedy?
Oh right, there’s this team. David drafts like Austin, but without any of the charm or skill. Cam Newton is coming off of his worst season as a pro, just had shoulder surgery, and has a head coach who is actively campaigning against him scoring touchdowns. David took him third overall. Cameron Meredith RIP’d his ACL and got picked in the 8th. When David drafted Frank Gore he said out loud, “Al Gore.” It may be an okay comparison: both are unbelievably boring (no one gets 14 carries and 67 yards quite like Frank Gore), still trying to do their same bit despite diminishing returns (An Incovenient Truth 2: Still Truthin’), and were incapable of being the number one guy in Florida, never able to escape the shadow of Clinton (Portis). Pierre Garcon is French for “Frank Gore, but a Wide Receiver!” Jimmy Graham played basketball. David is already plotting his Zaq-esque escape, but stand up in Seattle could be on the horizon.
ZAQ Grade- Guys His Dad Thinks Are Good
Zaq went all in on the Cowboys this year. Anyone who has ever expected anything from the Cowboys will always be disappointed. This is my life. The last time the Cowboys made the playoffs two years in a row was 2006-2007. This year they blew up half of their overrated offensive line and had their favorite toy taken away for half of the season. Can Dez Bryant catch touchdowns? Hell yes, he can. Is he a man too large for this Earth, who plays so violently he will never be completely healthy? Also yes. Gravity always wins. Dak Prescott was fantastic last year. I believe he will be even better this year, but there’s no denying EVERYTHING broke his way last year. He will throw more than 4 picks this year, he will probably run for fewer TDs. And while that’s fine for real life, he’s not ready to be drafted ahead of the likes of Wilson, Cousins, Carr etc.. A backfield of Isaiah Crowell and Adrian Peterson is like something of my nightmares. Hue Jackson says he wants to use Crowell more this year so instead of 16 carries for 44 yards he’ll get more like 20 for 62! Adrian Peterson doesn’t catch the ball, doesn’t block well, and fumbles constantly. Oh, and did I mention he’s competing against two other guys who are pretty good? I have a feeling there will be a lot of 8 for 20 with a TD in his future. Eddie Lacy is fat and terrible. Terrance West is just regular terrible.
KYLE Grade- A Guy Who Might Benefit From Having Deeper Benches
After barely pulling out of a Comedy Catastrophe last year, this year is looking good for Comedy Cummies. When Russell Wilson isn’t dressing up like a gangster he saw on The Wire 15 years ago, he’s playing QB behind football’s worst offensive line. The Seahawks are so so bad in pass protection. They planned to roll out a basketball player at LT, but he tore his ACL. Russ will be running for his life all year long. And if he doesn’t get killed on the field, Future will get him off of it. A.J. Green and Mike Evans are a solid WR pairing, no doubt, so maybe this team could be… OH MY GOD MY EYES WHAT IS HAPPENING AT RUNNING BACK. Carlos Hyde is all they have, you say. Carlos Hyde is the only one who can do anything for the 49ers. It’s been that way for the last two years and Hyde still hasn’t done shit. Add the man who famously forgot to run the ball in the FUCKING SUPER BOWL with a 25 point lead and you have an awful RB1. Brain Hoyer is throwing the ball 40 times a game. CJ Anderson is the same way. It’s like Kyle read up on a 2015 Fantasy Football Magazine about guys who could have a breakout year. Mike Gillislee is backing up this trainwreck. It’s fun because even as the Patriots romp through a 14-2 season Kyle will hate every second of it as Rex Burkehead or Dion Lewis get trotted out on the field for their 4th TD of the game as Gillislee rotates in for his two carries a drive. This brings me joy.
JORDAN Grade- Likes ‘em Young
I suppose I should start with the obvious. Jordan used his first round pick on a guy he dropped last year. Jordan Howard, not good enough for the worst team in the league last year, good enough for #10 overall. Of course he had to pick Howard given the fact he is moonlighting as the current Bears starting QB. After a promising start to the two first names trend from last year (Jordan Howard, Michael Thomas) Jordan bucked the format and starting drafting people with normal last names. How lame. J-Gosh drafted a lady puncher (Joe Mixon), a quitter (Christian McCaffery), and the world’s ugliest man (DeAndre Hopkins). Unable to get his precious Adam Thielen he turned his sights from the farm to the LAX field. Chris Hogan teams up with Christian McCaffery to form a great white hope to make Spencer jealous. I’m most excited to see who he holds off on trading Samaje Perine for because POTENTIAL.
ZURNS Grade- From Worst to Only Close To The Worst?
Zurns, are you hiding from us? Any time fantasy football related content comes up Zurns goes silent. Do you think we are going to forget? Do you think you are going to avoid becoming the Sweat Comedian? It’s not going to happen, we will never forget. That being said… it appears Zurns used his time in Comedy Hell to better himself in the fantasy world. Sure, Lamar Miller doesn’t really score touchdowns, and sure Brandon Marshall fell off the fantasy cliff last year, yeah sure Martellus Bennett has never really been a fantasy relevant tight end and Aaron Rodgers has never really thrown to one, and sure the bench is counting on Giovani Bernard and Jamaal Charles to contribute… but I’m sure nothing will go crazy quite like last year. Until then just prepare for that stage, because you will be going up. Oh yes, you will.
SPENCER Grade- Really, Really Into Women
Should I start with the white guys? I have to start with the white guys, right? Our favorite Michael Phelps-supporting, John Stockton loving, gritty, coach-the-field, lunch pail type starts grabbing whities you have to take note. Spencer looked to preserve history by drafting a white, not gay QB who has “historically” played well. He then grabbed two of the whitest motherfuckers from the whitest city on Earth, Adam Thielen and Kyle Rudolph (Spencer said Sam Bradford was “too Hawaiian” for his tastes). Then added to his stockpile of white QBs with the person he called “the most persecuted QB of the offseason”, ranting about how Kurthead deserved a major deal and that no QB ever has faced that kind of indecency since Tebow. Of course having two quality QBs will allow us to continue to play America’s favorite game “Which Wrong QB Will Spencer Start”??? His record was awful last year and I can’t wait to see if he does it again. He also drafted Cole Beasley because something, something… SMU… something something… Doak Walker greatest RB of all time. He tried to throw me off the sent with some really urban names like “DeAndre Washington” and “Martavis Bryant” (“I knew he smoked the devil’s lettuce, just look at him”). Bryant is of course still technically suspended, I’m sure the good and just Rog will allow him to play. Spray Tan Murray and Devonta Freeman could both end up splitting time with their backfield-mates and end up with none of them being consistent. Larry Fitzgerald’s horse face is old as dirt.
DESK Grade- Spurs Trying To Sign CP3
Oh god this team is a snooze-fest. Let’s look back at the last year and see the last team I thought was this boring….. oh it’s Zach Burns, our comedian! Todd Gurley is ass and can’t even use a stacked box as an excuse anymore. He was one of the worst in the league against base defenses last year. BY GOD THAT’S TRENT RICHARDSON’S MUSIC!!! Marshawn Lynch spent an entire year drinking Hennessy and eating Skittles and he thinks he can just jump right into the league again? Please. He even left his spikes up on the telephone wires. Julio Jones is the only player in the league who can put up a billion yards and never find the end zone. The DeVante Parker hype train is back! If you just take away the last two years where he never did anything he’s great! Desk’s back ups at WR are Stefon Diggs who has never caught a pass for more than 4 yards, Jeremy Maclin who has been bad for 3 straight years and is going to the WR haven that is Baltimore. D’Onta Foreman is like Eddie Lacy, but slower.
ADAM Grade- Championship

Is MIKES Autotrader scam?

Mike’s AutoTrader
&
Mikes Facebook Manual signals group
mikes-autotrader
Today we want to introduce Mikes Autotrader. This binary options autotrader was launched while ago by Michael Freeman himself. For those who don’t know, Michael Freeman has the largest binary options Youtube channel and is also known as the most popular binary options blogger in the industry. Mike has been in the binary options industry for nearly 4 years; he provides top free mentoring on his “Mike’s Youtube Channel”. Mike previously offered “manual signal service” to his group members through SMS and Email. We also have been testing this manual signals service for some time and we have to admit that it was great. He usually sent about 5 to 8 manual signals per day. The average in the money (ITM) success rate was around 87%, which is great.
We are very confident in Michael Freeman, because he is a legit guy who delivers amazing results and he also provides his personal support to every single member who runs into any issues. We personally know Michael Freeman and we know that he is the top figure in Binary Options industry. He is also the owner of (BinaryOptionsWatchdog) and (BinaryOptionsChannel) by the way. Note that Mike is NOT a paid actor from Fiverr promoting scam software such as SecretAlgoBot, FastCashBiz or ProtectedProfits.com.
Mike’s Autotrader advantages: – Mikes Autotrader is FREE – After 4 months of testing we got 81% success rate – Compatible with top trusted brokers only (Our top Trusted Brokers List) -Easy set up (US & EU traders accepted) – Michael Freeman has posted over 250 articles + many videos on strategies and recommendations to traders. Everything has been completely for free of charge. – Michael Freeman has put his reputable name on the line with this software
Screenshot from Mike’s Autotrader Platform
mikes autotrader interface
Disadvantages -Mike’s Autotrader can only be synced with certain brokers. -You will be required to donate to a charity organisation of your choice (Not mandatory) – Traders from countries where binary options are not fully regulated may not be accepted.
Why choose Mikes Autotrader ?
Well, let’s really look who is behind this binary options trading software. As mentioned before Michael Freeman has huge reputation in binary options industry. When searching Google for any information related to binary options trading, you will always see Michael Freeman on the top of the list. This guy is real person and he really knows what he is doing.
Note that if you join Mikes Autotrader then you will automatically receive access to Mikes Signals group on Facebook. Mikes Facebook group is closed binary options trading community. As a member of Mikes Facebook group you will receive top quality binary options signals from top traders all day long 24/5. Those traders are from different countries around the globe.

Here is another screenshot from Mikes Facebook group
(Notice how one of the Admins sent 17 ITM signals in a row)
mikes facebook group performance
In Mikes Facebook group you will not only receive high accuracy binary options signals, but you will also be able to talk to actual Pro traders, ask questions, learn from them and from other people within that community. I have been in Mikes Facebook group from the day it was launched and I must say that this is the largest, best and probably the only legit binary options trading community out there. This is an ideal place for experienced traders as well as for newbies who are struggling trading by themselves, or just for people who want to learn how to become professional trader.
Enough with the words, please watch this video where Mike describes why you should choose his autotrader. If you wish to sign up for Mike’s Autotrader and get access to Mikes Facebook group click here OPEN FREE ACCOUNT.
Summary Mikes Autotrader is probably the most reliable and successful binary options service out there. Inexperienced and experienced traders will profit from this bot. As mentioned before, we did test Mikes Autotrader for 4 months with 81% success rate. This is truly amazing. If we had to rate this product we would give it 10 points out of 10. To be honest we are kind of surprised that Mikes Autotrader is still free of charge considering its relieable and stable ITM success rate.
Mikes Autotrader versus Other Autotraders Mikes Autotrader might look similar to other autotraders, but overall this is very different product. Mikes autotrader will provide you with limited amount of trades. Unlike other binary options autotraders, Mikes Autotrader main focus is quality over quantity. This is the main reason why Mike Autotrader delivers high ITM rate. So you will not get massive amount of trades every day. Instead you will only receive best trades with this bot. The best solution is if you use both services -Mikes Autotrader & – Mikes Facebook group. This will ensure that you receive more than enough trades per day.
We have no doubts that if you will start using Mikes Autotrader as well as signals from Mikes Facebook group, you will not be looking for any other trading services. Because this will be all you need. You will be shocked how successful both of these services are. Both created and provided by the same binary options professional Michael Freeman.
Is Mikes Autotrader Scam? Is Mikes Facebook signals group Scam?
The answer is NO, Mikes autotrader is not a scam. Michael Freeman is a real person behind this product. Scammer would never expose himself to public like Michael Freeman. Mike has exposed himself to public a lot. He has also been telling a lot of true life stories in Facebook group about himself and his family. He also has answered every single question posted on his YouTube Channel or his Blogs. Mikes Facebook Group is obviously not scam either. A the moment there are 2,817 members in this Facebook community and numbers are growing. Check the evidence below:

Gold Digger Trading BOT | Sept.15th 2015 REVIEW | Who’s digging what from who? | Mining for Truth

 
Don’t get a pick-axe stuck in the back of your head by not reading this article in full. This review could save you, or break you financially. Don't touch this product until you have completed this read!
Unless you are a full-time Forex or Binary Options trader, trading into the wee early hours of the morning can wear you down. Hence the invention of auto-trading, trading-bot software products. You sleep whilst they work for you, with money generation in mind opposed to money degradation as the case may be.
 
You may have had the experience in the past using auto-trading software to provide for you with a ROI (Return ON Investment), such as OptionBot2 or Michael Freeman's Auto Trading software, another highly rated ITM (In The Money) provider. Other auto-traders have proven to be quite defective, not even providing a ROI (Return OF Investment). Let’s not go there, wasting time and depress those readers who have already traveled down that scorching road. If you haven’t had such misfortune to date, just so you are not blindsided, be aware of a few existing Auto-Trading BOTs, paraded scams currently at play within the Binary Options industry. i.e. Binary Boom Rock The Stock The 50k Mission, the list goes on.
 

Quick View DETAILS:

Industry:..........Binary Options Website Link:...Gold Digger Promotion Product:...........Automated trading system Release Date:...16th September 2015
 
Moving right along, a product certainly worth a mention, a new auto-trading system, Gold Digger. Gold Digger is a very hot product right now on the internet. “Come on, how good is it, really?” I hear you ask. With the official launch just a day away now, claims have been made that this auto-trader has technically exploded into a hemisphere of its own, scientifically providing performance like no other, i.e. other rival bots are like a child toy and pale in comparison. Very high claims I say, however on closer inspection this product has two fold benefits as it turns out.
 
I have traded binary options for over two years now, I initially lost allot of money and learn allot both in theory and practice, wising up along the way. I’m happy to say I am now a profitable trader. If you are new or an existing Binary Options Trader and would like to fast track your learning curve and path, Gold Digger could be the product for you. Don’t take my word for it, do you own research, below is a link providing you with statistics relating to the Gold Digger auto trading software.

WARNING Advice:

1. Always remember when testing out any new trading ventures, manual or automatic, make sure you have a money management plan, once you have a strategy in place stick with it.
 
2. A FREE trading DEMO account is a great way to test out new strategies so you don’t go bust in the process.  
3. Not all brokers are made equal when it comes to great customer service, being able to withdraw funds, having a user friendly, easy to use trading platform to work with. I have traded with a countless number of brokers, some I have had nightmare experiences. I prefer to trade only using industry regulated brokers tick all the boxes, as above ( I have listed these below). If you are not sure, try out one of the brokers listed below, do a background check as required, they will provide you with a demo account on request.
 

TRIED & TRUSTED BROKERS:

 
Banc De Binary
