Colts Draft: Mock Draft Monday; Another Trade-down Scenario

A fresh, new seven-round Indianapolis Colts mock draft comin’ at ya.

Next up in the Indianapolis Colts “Mock Draft Monday” series, I’ve got another trade. In the first installment, I included the mock inside another series about returning the Colts to the glory days. I simulated a trade with the Denver Broncos, giving the Colts the Broncos’ No. 5 and No. 40 picks in exchange for No. 3. This week, I’ve got another trade; this one, with the New York Jets.

The purpose of this series is...

What to expect from Indianapolis Colts new head coach, Frank Reich

Last week, the Indianapolis Colts announced that former Philadelphia Eagles offensive coordinator, Frank Reich, accepted the position of the team’s head coach. Unlike Josh McDaniels, Reich took on the role without any intention of backing out of the deal. Earlier this month, he won the Super Bowl over McDaniels and the New England Patriots. Let us take a closer look at the new face of the Colts organization. Reich began his career with NFL not as a coach, but as a player. He spent the...

SBCL: Bradley Chubb the Consensus Pick for Colts in Latest Mocks

Nearly all NFL mocks have the Colts taking Bradley Chubb, but what happens when all doesn’t go as planned

The prevailing thought from most of the Indianapolis Colts’ fan base is for the team to trade back and acquire additional picks. Some analysts, however, are suggesting that the Colts can ill-afford to miss out on a top-3 talent in this draft and should stand pat.

The Colts will be in a prime area to receive a great return for the third-overall pick, but the argument to secure a...

Making Sense of the Colts’ Free-Agent Class

With free agency looming just under a month away, the Indianapolis Colts have several decisions to make when it comes to its 13 unrestricted free agents. All-time greats, underwhelming prospects and lifelong Colts pile up in the free market; putting the ball in the hands of Chris Ballard and horseshoe management. Fortunately for Indy, having over $80 million in cap space will not only give them the opportunity to sign anyone in the market, but also the chance to sweeten deals for the free...

Andrew Luck excited about Frank Reich's 'uptempo' offense

The Indianapolis Colts need a fresh start. But luckily for them, that comes in the form of new head coach Frank Reich. Meanwhile, franchise quarterback Andrew Luck is coming off his year-long absence. But he is looking forward to working under Reich.“That sounds great.”A simple observation, of course. But Luck doesn’t stop there.“I know all the best offenses that I’ve been a part of in my career, we’ve not been static and we’ve attacked. And I’m sure he’ll have a great...

Colts Cast: Mulling Over Colts No. 3 Overall Pick | Free Agent Targets Pertinent for Rebuild

After sifting through the Indianapolis Colts latest news, I go in on the team’s No. 3 overall pick in the upcoming NFL Draft. Being that free agency hasn’t kicked off yet, it’s so difficult to discern what the Colts must do with the pick. I go over thoughts on holding onto the pick, as well trying to figure out if the Colts could forgive themselves if they missed on their top choice if they did trade back.

I also go into free agency and some of the potential targets the Colts should...

Is the Colts’ “Secret Weapon” a Guy They Just Pulled Out of Retirement?

Rusty Jones has made a career out of innovation in strength and conditioning, now he has joined the Colts

The Colts recently announced the official signing of 4 members of their staff. Three of the names might have been pretty familiar to you. One of them probably wasn’t.

Colts have signed Matt Eberflus as defensive coordinator, Nick Sirianni as offensive coordinator, Bubba Ventrone as special teams coordinator and Rusty Jones as director of sports performance.

Colts hire Nick Sirianni as offensive coordinator

It’s official. The Colts have hired Chargers wide receivers coach Nick Sirianni as their new offensive coordinator, according to a team press release. Before Josh McDaniels backed out of the Colts’ head coaching job, it appeared that the team would hire either former Seahawks play-caller Darrell Bevell or Raiders quarterbacks coach Jake Peetz as OC. New head coach Frank Reich inherited several assistants from McDaniels’ would-be staff, but he had some say in this choice and the team...

Andrew Luck Talks Colts’ New Head Coach Frank Reich

Andrew Luck took a couple minutes off from rehabbing his shoulder to chat with Colts.com writer Andrew Walker about his thoughts on the hiring of Frank Reich as the new head coach of the Colts. As you might expect, Luck isn’t going to say much. He has never been the guy who gives exciting or entertaining quotes, and he is known for an absurd level of humility that most will find silly given his talent. This was not much different. Luck’s quotes are pretty innocuous, and he delivered them...

Improving the Colts Defense: Offseason Outcomes in a Dream Scenario

In part two of this exercise, I examine the defensive side of the ball

On Wednesday I wrote about my ideal offseason to fix the Colts’ offense. Today, the defense is on the docket. As with that story, in this exercise, I will be largely forgoing major changes on the offensive side of the ball. I won’t totally sell them out with my moves, but I will mainly focus on the defense.

The defense has been infused with a ton of young talent with Chris Ballard taking over last year. However, the...

Could Colts Utilize Salary Cap Space for Beneficial Trade Possibilities?

While the NFL does not have a specific system for how a team can trade players or draft picks for cash considerations, the Houston Texans proved last year that teams are willing to pay with draft picks to unload a player with an unwieldy cap hit. Typically, the most interested parties for trades such as this will be teams who have plenty of cap space and who are placing an emphasis on drafting players to form the foundation for the future.

This year, the Colts are sitting with what is...

Frank Reich adds LB, DB, and special teams coaches

After taking a chance to get acclimated to his new position in Indianapolis, Frank Reich has gone to work with Chris Ballard and Jim Irsay to fill out the rest of his coaching staff. Today, three different coaches joined the team with a focus on defense and special teams.

Defensive backs coach Alan Williams returns to Indianapolis from Detroit. He previously spent time with the Colts in the 4-3 defensive scheme from 2002-2011. He earned an opportunity to lead the Minnesota Vikings as...

Vontae Davis Medically Cleared, Ready to Visit Teams

Former Colts cornerback Vontae Davis is healthy and looking for his next team.

Earlier this week, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported that former Indianapolis Colts cornerback Vontae Davis had finally been medically cleared to resume playing football following his groin surgery late last season.

Now, Davis is beginning to visit teams in hopes of continuing his career. Up first, according to ESPN’s Mike Rodak, is the Buffalo Bills. Davis visited the team on Thursday.
