ProFootballTalk.com recently reported that the Colts signed two fullbacks from the Super Regional Combine: The club said Thursday it had signed Stephen Campbell and Cameron White, each of whom was not in the NFL in 2013.

In the first part of this series, we had taken a look at the weight of the Colts’ 3-4 defensive front, and how it compared to the rest of the NFL’s 3-4 defensive fronts. In this analysis, we will look at the “next level” of the Colts’ 3-4 defense, specifically as it relates to the weight of their ILB and OLB corps. As previously mentioned, there are 17 defenses utilizing or set to utilize a 3-4 defense in 2014: Atlanta Falcons, Arizona Cardinals, Baltimore Ravens, Cleveland Browns, Green Bay Packers, Houston Texans, Indianapolis Colts, Kansas...Continue reading »

If you’re a lifelong fan you know what this is like. In fact, you may not even remember a time when it wasn’t so. What’s blue, has a horseshoe, and can’t stop the run? An Indianapolis Colt. It’s been a recurring problem for years. 4-3…3-4…small defensive tackles…big defensive tackles; no matter the scheme or personnel, the Colts always seem to have a problem stopping the run. It’s like it’s a requirement for any Colts’ player to immediately lose his run-stuffing prowess before starting on the job. You...Continue reading »

  When the Indianapolis Colts surrendered their 2014 first round pick for then Cleveland Browns’ RB, Trent Richardson, this wasn’t what they had in mind. Richardson was the 3rd overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, two picks behind the Colts’ very own young star QB, Andrew Luck. He was considered one of the top young runningbacks in the league and left Colts’ fans dreaming that he’d be the reincarnation of former Colts’ great Edgerrin James. A great young RB to pair with an already great young QB. Instead, Richardson not only struggled,...Continue reading »

ProFootballTalk.com has announced that former Colts’ cornerback, Cassius Vaughn, has signed a one-year deal with the Detroit Lions. Vaughn will likely be most remembered for the defensive back that Anquan Boldin abused on his way to 12 receptions, 282 yards, and 2 TD’s en route to the Colts’ 2012 wildcard playoff loss against the Ravens. However, he was a solid contributor at times and was one of the first pick-ups that GM Ryan Grigson made to fix a secondary that was pretty barren of talent when he initially arrived on the job.  Vaughn played in all...Continue reading »

  One of the glaring holes heading into the Indianapolis Colts’ offseason was at the center position. It’s now April, and still, not much has been done to significantly address the position. That is, unless you consider former Cowboys’ signed center, Phil Costa, as a big signing. To GM Ryan Grigson’s credit, at least he has made moves at the position. There are some GM’s in the National Football League who can be woefully stubborn and refuse to make a change. Grigson saw what any informed Colts’ observers saw, Samson Satele was...Continue reading »

Rest assured, this will not be the case for all Colts’ players that may be on the active roster bubble, but sometimes special circumstances allow me to write certain feel good stories. This analysis is on Colts’ backup tight end, Jack Doyle, and his ascent to the Colts’ roster. Doyle played his high school football at none other than Indianapolis’ Cathedral High School, where he was all-state. He played his collegiate football at Western Kentucky, where he was a three time captain and discernibly a leader. He ended up being undrafted in the 2013...Continue reading »

In March, when the Colts’ signed Hakeem Nicks to a one year, $3.5M dollar contract, you may have been thinking, “Wow, what a bargain!”. Nicks is one of the bigger named receivers in the National Football League. At 26, he’s a player that’s a former Super Bowl XLVI Champion, and someone who’s had both big games and spectacular catches throughout his NFL career. Surely, he has a lot of good football left in him, right? RIGHT? So how did we get to this point? Why is a receiver presumably in the prime of his career settling for a one year,...Continue reading »

On March 6th, the Indianapolis Colts signed former Cleveland Browns ILB D’Qwell Jackson to a four-year, $22 million dollar contract ($11M being guaranteed). Jackson, 30, has been highly regarded throughout NFL circles, as one of the most consistent ILB’s over the past several years. D’Qwell Jackson is quite frankly a tackling machine. He finished 7th in the NFL out of all defenders in combined tackles at 141 tackles, which placed him 2nd among all 3-4 ILB’s (Note: San Francisco 49ers’ stalwart NaVorro Bowman led all 3-4 ILB’s with...Continue reading »
