Margus Hunt Jersey Stitched

Colts vs Bengals: Position battles to watch in preseason week four For all three of you who intend to voluntarily watch the Colts’ week four preseason matchup in its entirety Jabaal Sheard Jersey Stitched , I salute you. From the moment the full schedule was made known, we knew that it would be a very dull affair. When your final preseason matchup and your first regular season matchup are against the same opponent, how can you not expect your team to show absolutely as little as possible? Yet that is precisely the situation in which a group of backup players will battle intensely to cement themselves on this Colts roster. While the game itself will be a snoozer, the outcome definitely matters for some of those players. There are several battles worth watching, so lets take a look at them.Offensive LineBrian Spurlock-USA TODAY SportsWhile the left side of the line is settled, the right side of the offensive line at both the guard and tackle positions is not. Matt Slauson has been the presumed starter at the right guard position, but that is not a guarantee according to Reich. Rookie Braden Smith is still contending for that spot. At right tackle, the competition is wide open. Our own Brett Mock thinks that is where Smith would be best suited to play, beside Matt Slauson. Austin Howard has provided ample evidence that he does not belong on the roster, let alone starting, which leaves Joe Haeg, an injured Denzelle Good, and J’Marcus Webb to jockey for that spot. It sounded as though Joe Haeg would get the nod to start tonight. Wide ReceiverBrian Spurlock-USA TODAY SportsThe wide receiver competition is another that remains a toss-up. Rookie 5th round pick Reece Fountain has a critical night ahead of him if he wants to convince the coaching staff that he brings production, not just potential Andrew Luck Jersey White , to the roster. Guys like Zach Pascal, Steve Ishmael, and Kasen Williams have all wowed at various points in the offseason and will be gunning for the remaining spots. This competition may come down to special teams contribution. The guys who can be a difference maker on special teams will likely get the nod while the rest go by the wayside. This is an area I would not be surprised to see Ballard address with waiver claims, so even when this evening is concluded, the guys who “win” won’t be even close to done battling.CornerbackKirby Lee-USA TODAY SportsWho will start for the Colts at cornerback once the regular season starts? All along the defense there has been a lot of rotation as guys attempt to make their case for bigger roles. The cornerbacks have been no different. We have not seen clear indicators about who will be locked in where, and it is safe to say that the situation remains fluid. My prediction is that Quincy Wilson and Pierre Desir start on the outside and Kenny Moore gets the nod in the slot, but with Moore’s versatility to play in the slot and on the boundary, we could see either Desir or Wilson sitting and Moore moving to the outside while Hairston plays the slot. Injuries have muddied the waters in this competition, and we don’t yet know who will be active for the game. However, this is the last chance before the games matter for the starters to set their spots, and for the depth players to make a case to remain.Running BackThomas J. Russo-USA TODAY SportsThis spot seems less in peril due to injuries, but Frank Reich has said that Robert Turbin will need to show up tonight to earn his spot on the roster. It very well could be that we have all taken for granted that Turbin will make the team, but given that he won’t count against the roster and that there could likely be running backs brought in off waivers, that is not necessarily the case.Tonight’s game will also be an opportunity for Nyheim Hines to have a good showing after what has been a shaky preseason. He needs to show he can have a game where ball security is not an issue Youth Margus Hunt Jersey , and make himself a valuable weapon on the offense.Jordan Wilkins will be looking to show that he can continue to produce and further cement himself in as the best option behind a healthy Marlon Mack. If Mack is not ready to go week one, Wilkins is likely the guy who will see the majority of the carries, so he needs to prove to the coaching staff that he deserves that consideration by finishing strong. INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Indianapolis Colts general manager Chris Ballard enjoys these final days before the NFL draft.He pores through the tapes, meets with coaches and scouts, and constantly debates where each college prospect belongs on the Colts’ board. Some see this annual ritual as a tedious, emotional grind. Ballard savors every precious moment as he prepares to step into the biggest ring of the offseason.“It’s tense when we’re arguing about where people need to be,” Ballard said last weekend. “You’re arguing about who to take and where to take them, but it’s fun.”Perhaps that explains why Ballard has produced big-time results in each of his first two drafts in Indy.When playmaking safety Malik Hooker slid to the Colts at No. 15 in 2017, he wasted no time in making the call. He also added starting running back, Marlon Mack in Round 4 and starting middle linebacker Anthony Walker in the fifth round. Not bad.But last year, he delivered a knockout performance.First, Ballard added three draft picks in a trade with the New York Jets. Then, he landed All-Pros — left guard at No. 6 and linebacker Darius Leonard at No. 36 — with his first two selections and found a starting right tackle, Braden Smith Andrew Luck Jersey , at No. 37.How does he do it?By following a logical plan: He wants players who love football, want to be coached, fit the locker room and his positional prototypes. So far, it’s worked.“The best players I’ve been around are guys like Quenton who never think they are good enough,” second-year coach Frank Reich said. “You ask Quenton — he is not good enough. You ask Andrew (Luck) — he is not good enough. You just listen to those guys talk, that’s what they all say, ‘I’ve got to get a lot better.’ That is contagious.”And it could be the key to mining more talent with this year’s nine overall selections.“I like them picks,” Ballard said. “I think on draft day you figure out when you formulate a plan of who you have targeted, where can we get them, do we have to move up or can we move back? I’ve always been under the premise that the more picks you have — the more darts you have at the dart board — the better chance you have to hit on players.”TOP TARGETSDespite adding receiver Devin Funchess and linebacker Justin Houston in free agency, Ballard could be seeking another young receiver to help Luck and another pass rusher to pressure opponents.Some names being bandied about include Mississippi receiver A.J. Brown and three Clemson defensive linemen: Christian Wilkins, Clelin Ferrell and Dexter Lawrence.All seem to fit Ballard’s traits. But one thing is clear: Ballard will rely on the draft board.DOWN ON THE CORNERThe Colts also could be in the market for a cornerback, especially if some of the top prospects start sliding.One potential candidate is former LSU star Greedy Williams, who was widely considered the top cornerback and a likely top-10 pick less than two months ago. But as scouts started questioning his instincts and whether he looks as quick on the field as he does running in shorts Margus Hunt Jersey Stitched , his stock slipped far enough Ballard could now be in position to stop that slide.Another option could be Byron Murphy of Washington, who some believe is the best ball hawk at cornerback.TRADE MARKETThe only thing Ballard likes more than having extra chips on draft weekend is adding more. It could happen again this year if another quarterback-needy team believes it needs to move up to No. 26 to get its man.The price could give Ballard one or two extra Day 2 picks this year, or perhaps something even more valuable: future draft assets.POST-DRAFT PARTYWhile the focus over the past few months has been on mock drafts, Ballard has been scouring the country for undrafted help, too.Last weekend, the Colts brought more than three dozen players to their team complex for workouts. Most played high school or college football in Indiana and got a firsthand chance to work with Colts coaches. It was at this pro day that former Colts center Deyshawn Bond and current receiver Krishawn Hogan made their first impression on the team.“I’d say three-fourths of them we have something on, we’ve scouted them, we know something about them,” Ballard said. “We’ve got some guys here who I think will get drafted.”
