2018 Colts Position Review: Wide Receiver

With no big names other than T.Y, this was the Colts weakest position group last season. Starters: T.Y Hilton, Chester Rogers Bench: Dontrelle Inman, Ryan Grant, Zach Pascal The Colts entered the season extremely thin at wide receiver, and it showed all throughout the season. Besides T.Y Hilton, no Colts receiver had more than 500 yards or 4 touchdowns. If not for the magic of Andrew Luck, this group would have been even worse. Starting with The Ghost, he was as consistent as ever and put...

Since today is Friday, there are football games each of the next two days! It feels weird typing that after the Super Bowl. Most of you have cut your cable off because, seriously, who wants to watch Golden State win another title? Most of the NCAA teams are pretty good, but not great, and outside of Duke and Zion Williamson, what are we watching?

Nothing. We’re seriously all just killing time until at least the NFL Draft if not Week 1. Come on, April...

The Colts are in the throes of rebuilding the roster as well as the culture inside the organization, and such a massive turnaround between these last two seasons has the entire league taking notice.

Louisiana Tech defensive end Jaylon Ferguson uninvited from NFL Combine

Due to an altercation in a McDonald’s during his freshman year, Ferguson has been uninvited from Indy

Jaylon Ferguson has had his NFL Combine invite rescinded after an off-field issue seemed to surface where Ferguson was convicted of battery during his freshman year at Louisiana Tech. According to league rules, a violation like this is enough to make a player ineligible to participate in Combine activities.

The ‘misses’ of the 2018 NFL Draft for the Indianapolis Colts

The 2018 NFL Draft class for the Indianapolis Colts was arguably the best haul in the NFL — composed of eight players who started three games or more, the Defensive Rookie of the Year and arguably the best guard in all of football. But who were some of the names Chris Ballard and the Indy front office missed out on? Not every draft pick is a slam dunk, and not every athlete reaches his full potential in Year One.
