Oh man that dredges up some arguments as I recall. Hopefully he has less injuries than Mike did.

Above are some highlights from all our draft picks. Obviously highlight reels only paint a rosy picture of a player, but still, each one has some interesting film, makes me optimistic - and well, that's all we can be at this point. We'll see what happens.
Some thoughts influenced by the video:
Ya-Sin: still love the name. Kollman really talked him up as a perfect fit. In the vid, he plays physical, bodies up receivers, and knows how to position himself to make a play.
Banogu: Looks like a fighter - when he gets his eyes on a QB he fights through blocks to get there. Not a quick first step though.
Campbell: dude is fast, has big play written all over him. That jet-sweep - wow.
Okereke: sideline to sideline speed and a thumper? yes please.
Willis: not a lot of "big" plays but looked like good form tackling, and quick to the ball.
Tell: looks like he's good at reading the QB and being a ball hawk.
Speed: Well, he was messing guys up in the highlights, but vs. some real low-tier talent.
Green: some actual possibility here as an edge rusher.
Barton: had a couple of Biq Q esque pancakes in there. Gotta like that.
Patterson: not bad, looks like he could be a heckuva good guard

I actually really liked what Willis showed on those few plays. Some scouting reports questioned his speed and closing ability, but he demonstrated both in those clips.

Another interesting fact I think almost all the guys were team captains. And frankly have some impressive resumes. Okereke was an intern for Condeleeza Rice and played at Carnegie hall. Just all high character guys. Speed sticks out a little, but they did their homework on him.

I love, love, love CB's who can and will tackle with authority.

All of these guys, until you get to the final 2 OL picks, just ooze athleticism.

Tell looks like a WR out there.

I just can't imagine an offense that has TY, Ebron, Hines, Campbell and Funchess on the field at the same time. TY may never see double coverage again!

If Banogu is a LB, then we are now 6 to 7 deep at LB.

I think he and Maniac are going to feed off each other and really ignite the Defense by making a lot of big plays.

Mel Kiper gave the Colts an A for their draft.

Athletes!!! I can't remember the Colts having this many apparently exceptional athletes on the squad. Not sure how great of football players they all are but damn there are some athletes there. If the coaching staff can figure out how best to use them and teach them fundamentals this could be a crazy good team. It will be interesting (hopefully fun) to watch the development of these guys. I am optimistic with this coaching staff. I let my head think about how I would feel if the previous staff was still here to develop these guys and got fairly sick. I frickin love this staff!!!
