Default Notes from Colts camp

https://twitter.com/JoelAErickson/st...94468105195520

Quote:
A little sloppy for the offense to start in the first 11-on-11 of practice. Wentz 1 of 5 with an Alie-Cox drop and a Ya-Sin PBU on a Pittman slant. Eason 1 of 3

Quote:
First interception of camp goes to Nick Nelson, off of Jacob Eason

Quote:
1-on-1 pass rush isn’t completely full go since it’s not full pads yet, but a couple of nice rushes from Tyquan Lewis, showing quickness to the inside off the edge

Quote:
Some thoughts from the first hour of camp:

— Both Wentz and Eason with some missed throws early
— Parris Campbell looks all the way back: Fast, smooth + and some nice catches over the middle
— You can see why they like Kylen Granson
— 2 breakups from Rock Ya-Sin

One thing noticeable with Wentz in this first session: the way he changes arm angles to get throws off

Quote:
For the day, I had Carson Wentz 6-for-13 in full team drills. He was 6-of-7 in 7-on-7s and would have been perfect if not for a drop (Hilton).

Didn't look super accurate today, but he had plenty of zip and had a couple nice tuck-and-runs.

Regarding the performance of the passing game in today's first day of practice: I would describe it as shaky.

But I also want to put that in context. Carson Wentz has never thrown to these guys against defense, despite their off-campus work in recent weeks. Be patient.

Another thing, as offensive coordinator Marcus Brady mentioned, they installed a lot of stuff just last night. Some of that was stuff they ran today, for the very first time. It wasn't gonna be particularly sharp.

Injuries + COVID notes:

Colts place three on the COVID list before the first practice of camp: Xavier Rhodes, Al-Quadin Muhammad and TJ Carrie.

Wentz and Eason both looked much better.

So, it looks like Eason is the back up? I mean, will they sign a veteran?

Wentz in 11-on-11 today: 8-10
Eason: 9-9, or 8-8 depending on whether or not you count a play he would've gotten sacked
Ehlinger: 3-3
Morton: 2-2

I don't keep 7-on-7 stats because of the lack of rush.

A few Day 2 Colts camp observations:
-- DT/DE Tyquan Lewis looks really good. Quick & disruptive.
-- WR Zach Pascal seems to have built a quick rapport w/ Wentz.
-- The competition for snaps at DT behind Buckner/Stewart will be fierce.

Thanks for typing this out, I got lazy and just posted a video. Great information. Glad we have Pinter, don't hear about him much, but he is an invaluable piece of the offensive line depth for this team.

I don't think the Colts will sign a veteran back-up QB unless Eason and Ehlinger have a really, really, really bad camp and pre-season.

Wentz scrambles and find Pascal for 40 yards.

Day 3
I always enjoy Keven Bowen’s notes from camp

Quote:
Jacob Eason ended Thursday’s practice with the starters and handled those duties all throughout Friday’s session. Eason finished the day 12-of-17 with a horrific interception right into the hands of Bobby Okereke. It felt like a Jacoby Brissett check down day for Eason, with him making an un-Brissett like decision with the interception. That INT came after several progressions, yet still on a throw that was not traveling very far down the field. Eason completed passes to Michael Pittman 3x, Mo Alie-Cox 3x, Jonathan Taylor 3x, Mike Strachan, Zach Pascal and Parris Campbell. Given this was Eason’s first extensive first-team work, and that he was down 5 fellow starters around him, this was probably the ‘meh’ performance to expect.


Rookie Sam Ehlinger ran the second unit and went 8-of-10 in team work on Friday. It was also mostly a check down day for Ehlinger, with the Colts focusing a lot on third-down situations.


Friday was a feasting day for the Colts defensive ends against all the offensive tackles. Kwity Paye and Kemoko Turay had several ‘would be’ sacks. It was a strong day for the edge rush.


After two days of Will Holden at left tackle with the starters, Sam Tevi got his run with the first team on Friday. It sounds like the Colts want to give those guys multiple days in a row with the starters to try and get into some rhythm.


Friday was our first look at the placekicking competition. Both Rodrigo Blankenship and Eddy Pinerio were a perfect 3-of-3, connecting from 33, 42 and 50 yards. Hot Rod met the media after practice and mentioned that his extra weight room work has him up 4 pounds from last year. He’s noticed more distance on his kicks, stating that he feels comfortable from upwards of 65-66 yards.

The Colts were down around 8 starters on Friday: LT-Eric Fisher (Achilles), LG-Quenton Nelson (rest), C-Ryan Kelly (elbow), TE-Jack Doyle (rest), WR-T.Y. Hilton (rest), LB-Darius Leonard (ankle), CB-Xavier Rhodes (rest), CB-T.J. Carrie (rest). With the offensive line down to two starters, the Colts had LT-Sam Tevi, LG-Chris Reed and C-Danny Pinter getting starting run.


Friday was a strong day for Kwity Paye. You saw his athleticism pop a little bit more, both in 1-on-1 drills and in team settings.


Seeing Mike Strachan split out in a 1-on-1 drill, your eyes are instantly drawn toward such a size difference. Strachan hauled in a deep ball in one of those reps on Friday, making it look very easy along the sideline. It was a small glimpse of what the Colts could potentially have if they can scheme up him isolated in the red zone.

Friday brought our first scuffle of camp. During a 7-on-7 rep, Michael Pittman didn’t like safety Ibraheim Campbell’s physicality after the whistle. The two got into it with Pittman throwing Campbell to the ground. There’s no USC pretty boy when Pittman is on the field.


Marcus Brady said Ryan Kelly (elbow) is expected to miss a couple of weeks with his injured elbow. Kelly was at Friday’s practice rocking what looked like a Barry Bonds elbow pad. With Kelly out, expect Danny Pinter (2019 fifth-round pick) to get the starting run.


The Colts broke a few big runs on Friday with Jonathan Taylor, Jordan Wilkins and Marlon Mack all involved.


Darius Leonard (ankle) and Eric Fisher (Achilles) both got in some field work with members of the rehab staff during Friday’s practice.


For those curious on some available quarterbacks out there right now (Marcus Brady deflected a question on if the Colts will add another QB arm with Wentz’s injury), you have Robert Griffin III, Matt Barkley, Blake Bortles, Sean Mannion, Matt Schaub and Ryan Finley. Yes, we do need to note those names, just in case.
Couple of names that stood out to me on Friday for various reasons: DE-Ben Banogu, TE-Kylen Granson, DE-Isaac Rochell, LB-Bobby Okereke, RB-Jonathan Taylor


The Colts will have on more practice Saturday before an off day on Sunday. See the schedule below.
