prospects The Colts are rolling through their 2018 season as they face the Washington Redskins this week in D.C. Now there is a lot to talk about regarding that game but lets talk about some draft prospects. With the Colts having 11 picks in the 2019 draft including three in the first two rounds Youth Jordan Wilkins Jersey , Colts fans need to be familiar with some of these college players. So this will be the first installment of a weekly Scouting Notebook here on Stampede Blue.Each Scouting Notebook will feature me highlighting 3-4 prospects in college football and breaking down why I think they would be good fits for the Colts. Also, I will be including some analysis from an expert outside analysis each week as well. This week I asked Gavino Borquez of The Draft Wire to provide 3-4 players that he thought would fill the Colts needs, So without further ado, here is the first weekly Scouting Notebook of the year: Jerry Tillery, IDL, Notre Dame Photo by Jonathan Daniel/Getty ImagesJerry Tillery could be the perfect fit in Matt Eberflus’ defense as a 3-tech. Tillery has been a four year fixture on the Notre Dame defensive line ever since arriving on campus. Starting off as a key rotational player his first two years with The Fighting Irish, Tillery garnered 49 tackles, 5.5 tackles for a loss, and 1 sack in only 17 games played. Last year though, Tillery broke onto the scene in his first year fully starting. He tallied 56 tackles, 9 tackles for a loss, and 4.5 sacks in 13 games started.Tillery is an excellent prospect as he displays incredible length and size for the position along with a few quality pass rushing moves in his repertoire. Standing at 6’7” 305 pounds, he effortlessly stacks and sheds defenders with his length. In run defense, he does have fairly decent fundamental athleticism to strafe down the line and make plays. I think Tillery can be an effective starting DT who provides a big boost in pass rushing in the NFL. Here, Tillery shows off his length and pass rush savvy. Uses a push-pull technique to free himself from the guard and ends the play with a sack:This is an impressive run stop by Tillery as he uses his right hand to shield the blocking guard as he strafes down the line to make the play:Again we see the length and push-pull technique on full display. His go to move is very effective: Overall I think Tillery would be a great fit on the Colts defensive line. With his length and pass rushing ability, I imagine DC Matt Eberflus could use him in a variety of ways. As a potential starting 3-tech, its hard to find a better fit for the Colts in college football. Keep an eye out for this guy.Here’s what Gavino had to say about Tillery: 3T-Jerry Tillery (6-foot-6 and 305 pounds) Moved him to the three-technique this year and has been nearly unblockable. Long arms and frame. Good quickness and burst. Extremely durable. Nice get off.Julian Love, CB, Notre Dame:Photo by Jonathan Daniel/Getty ImagesSticking with Notre Dame, Julian Love is another really good prospect for the Colts. Corner is arguably the Colts biggest need and Love is a straight playmaker. In two years starting for Notre Dame, the Junior corner has 113 total tackles, 4 interceptions, and 23 pass deflections. Love also returned two of those four interceptions for touchdowns last season. Love may be my favorite cornerback prospect in this class not named Greedy Williams (who we will likely discuss in another Scouting Notebook). Love is extremely aggressive along with being a very good athlete who can run with any receiver. He excels in a zone scheme as he has great burst in and out of his breaks which allows his to disrupt underneath passes. Although he is a bit susceptible to double moves, Love has the potential to be a number one corner in the NFL.Here Love is in zone coverage on thrid and short playing the sticks. He sits on the quick out and quickly jumps the route for a pick 6: Here Love is man coverage with Kelvin Harmon. Love does a great job of driving Harmon to the sideline making the pass almost impossible to complete. Great job getting his head around too to avoid a penalty:Here Love sits on a quick curl and quickly jumps it for the PBU. His accleration out of his break is incredible. Overall Love has the potential to be a number one corner for the Colts, especially in a zone scheme. His ability to read the QB and break on underneath routes is unprecedented and he has the athleticism to run with any receiver in man. He does have a tendency to get beat by double moves but I’m getting Marcus Peters Lite vibes from Love early on.Here’s what Gavino had to say about Love: CB-Julian Love (5-foot-11 and 193 pounds) Athletic, has a knack for the ball. Took two of his three INT to the house last yearMack Wilson, LB, Alabama:Photo by Tom Pennington/Getty ImagesMack Wilson is quietly continuing the Alabama tradition of producing excellent NFL linebackers. Wilson may not have much starter experience yet as he sat behind Reuben Foster White Eric Ebron Jersey , Shaun Dion Hamilton, and Rashaan Evans the last few years but he has been productive in limited time. As a rotational player last year, Wilson had 40 tackles, 2.5 tackles for a loss, and 4 interceptions.Wilson is a pure cover linebacker with excellent athleticism. He moves like a safety at his 6’2” 240 pound frame. In coverage, he reads quarterbacks with ease and has the burst and acceleration to break on all passes. He could be that coveted tight end eraser in the NFL next year as well as he matches up well with most tight ends. This year will be big for Wilson as he is the guy now at middle linebacker. I think he shoots up draft boards after a string season. Here Wilson does a good job of reading the run and shedding the blocker to make the play:His athleticism on full display here. Great interception off the deflection and turns the corner for the touchdown: In zone coverage here as he reads Francois and jumps the route. This play is impressive for a safety let alone a linebacker. Overall Wilson has the potential to be a very good Mike linebacker in the NFL. He has the natural athleticism and pass coverage ability to be an instant three down starter for the Colts. If he can improve a bit on his consistency and continually improve this year as a starter, I’d love to see him in a Colts uniform next year.Here’s what Gavino had to say about Wilson:LB-Mack Wilson Better athlete than Rashaan Evans, in my opinion. Crashes down hard against the run. Great vision at seeing rushing lanes open up. Strong ability to stack/shed blocks. Premier in coverage. 4 INTs last year.Today’s scouting notebook was more of a focus on the defensive side of the ball as the Colts appear to have the most weaknesses on that side. Each of these players bring a new type of talent that Chris Ballard and the Colts need to continue the rebuilding process. Julian Love is a potential number one corner with playmaking ability. Jerry Tillery offers insane size and pass rush ability that the Colts are lacking up front. Mack Wilson is an insane athlete with the potential to be a very good Mike backer in the NFL.Next week we will likely focus on the receiver position as that appears to be the main issue on the offensive side of the ball (besides TY Hilton of course) Since this is a relatively new weekly installment I do want to hear your feedback. If any of you have any suggestions for future scouting notebooks, leave a comment on this article here or follow me on twitter, @zachhicks2, and send your ideas there. If you’re looking for good news heading into Indy’s week 7 match up against the Buffalo Bills, you can start with being grateful that the game will not be played in a blizzard. This fact won’t necessarily change the outcome but it is a good place to start.For a second straight week, the Colts are getting important pieces back from injury. Today, Pro Bowl receiver T.Y. Hilton is expected to start and to help provide some juice to an otherwise disappointing receiver room. Defensive lineman Margus Hunt was wreaking havoc to start this season and has already put up a career high in sacks. He will be back on the field to help a unit that clearly missed him against the Jets.Things certainly aren’t perfect. Starting 3-tech Denico Autry is still out, tight end Jack Doyle will not play; starting wide receiver Ryan Grant will miss his first game of the season; offensive lineman Denzelle Good is inactive; the Colts will continue to take their cautious approach with starting safety Clayton Geathers; and veteran running back Robert Turbin is injured after getting his first meaningful reps of the season a week ago — yielding a fumble that didn’t help the cause. There are numerous others who have been lost for the season that were otherwise expected to produce for Indianapolis this season. This list includes second round defensive lineman Tyquan Lewis, undrafted wide receiver and preseason standout Deon Cain, multi-talented offensive lineman Joe Haeg, starting right guard Matt Slauson, starting-caliber safety Matthias Farley and tight end Ross Travis. In their absence, others have been forced to step up. Hopefully a couple of those players will have the chance to return this season, with rookie Lewis as the most likely candidate following the Week 9 bye.This week, we will see the introduction of fifth year veteran receiver Dontrelle Inman to the Colts offense. It will be interesting to observe how involved he is after only one week of practice. It has been announced that he will start in place of Grant. Keep in mind that Inman is familiar to Frank Reich from his time with the Los Angeles Chargers, so there is reason to believe that he is already familiar with concepts of his system and the verbiage he uses to call plays. Can he take advantage of the trust Chester Rogers and Zach Pascal have lost with the Colts coaching staff to establish an important role?One of the biggest stories of the game will be that Buffalo Bills rookie quarterback Josh Allen is out with an elbow injury and NFL veteran Derek Anderson will be filling in for him. Anderson’s 14 years of experience should help prepare him for the challenge but only two weeks familiarizing himself with Buffalo’s system and to establish timing and rapport with his receivers should give the Colts defense an advantage.While last week’s loss to the Jets likely sealed the team’s fate for a meaningful shot at a playoff opportunity, they sit only two games back in a very suspect AFC South. At this point, I would not encourage members of the Colts fan base to “hold out hope” for anything other than to see young players get better and a first-year coaching staff find its stride. This year can end up as a win if the team establishes an identity and starts cutting down on unforced errors that turn plausible wins into disappointing losses. If you want to hope, hope for that.For those fans who simply can’t help themselves, I will entertain the idea that this game is a must-win to keep Indy’s AFC South divisional hopes alive. There are five AFC South games ahead of the Colts after their bye. No team in the division has reason to feel super confident in the future. If the Colts start winning games, maybe they end up the best of the worst and claw out of a devastating early season hole. Maybe... but don’t count on it.Count on this — our keys to the game.ESTABLISH THE GROUND GAMEIn the second half last week White Denico Autry Jersey , Marlon Mack and the Colts offensive line starting having some success on the ground. Our film review shows that the success was due to the offensive line opening up nice holes and getting movement up front and Mack displaying better vision, decision-making, and a willingness to run the ball between the tackles. Was this all a fluke? Was this due to the fact that the Jets were letting the Colts run the football?This week Indianapolis has a chance to come out and dictate the pace of the game. They have a chance to be more physical in the trenches and use the threat of running to open up receivers in the passing game. At some point, the Colts offense will need to find balance to become more efficient and to frustrate defenses. This game provides a chance to build off of the second half a week ago and take the next step in the installation of a new offense.PLAY AGGRESSIVELY IN THE SECONDARYWhether the secondary is in zone or man coverage, the unit needs to be more aggressive to be effective. Early in the season, the secondary was outplaying their collective talent level by getting a strong break on the ball, wrapping up players immediately after a catch to stop long gains, and knocking down or breaking up passes at the catch point. Injuries may have slowed things down a bit but the defense needs to take on Darius Leonard’s play-style as its identity. Flying around the field, confidently pursuing the ball, being stingy and even taking risks from time-to-time need to become part of their DNA. Derek Anderson has had a respectable NFL career and he will gladly eat up soft zones if they’re presented to him. However, there is no way he has perfect timing with his receivers with such a short time in Buffalo. The Colts secondary should take full advantage of this fact.GENERATE CONSISTENT PRESSUREThe Colts started out this season as one of the most effective defensive units at generating pressure on opposing quarterbacks. In the Meadowlands, this attribute was absent. Rookie quarterback Sam Darnold was able to sit back and pick apart the Colts secondary without taking nearly enough hits or feeling enough pressure in his face. Frankly, Indianapolis cannot afford to return to their old ways. If they can’t generate pressure with Turay, Sheard, Hunt and Leonard this week — it does not bode well for the rest of the season. The Bills offensive line is beatable and Derek Anderson isn’t going to blow you away with his athleticism. Indy needs to take advantage.CATCH THE DAMN BALLThis will be a key to the outcome of every Colts game until the issue is fixed. Dropped passes are drive killers, touchdown erasers, game losers. Andrew Luck has had a compelling 2018 season that few would have predicted. His arm is strong, he is making all of the throws, and he looks more and more comfortable in Frank Reich’s offense.All he needs now is for his running backs and receivers to stop batting up passes that hit them in the hands and dropping perfectly thrown passes that would have otherwise gone for big plays. The Colts offense is better than it looks like on paper if not for dropped passes. Right now, that is the identity of the offense. It has to change.NO BACK BREAKING TURNOVERSThe blame for back breaking turnovers can be spread all over the offense. Running back Robert Turbin fumbled the ball away on a third and short possession and gave the Jets a short field a week ago. Rookie back Jordan Wilkins had the ball stripped in the midst of a compelling Colts comeback in New England. Tight end Jack Doyle fumbled the ball away against the Bengals in Week 1 on what would have otherwise been a game winning scoring drive.Andrew Luck has thrown some boneheaded interceptions at the worst possible time. He failed to locate Darron Lee in the middle of the field and gave up an important possession, giving the Jets excellent field position and the chance to shorten the game. He had no idea that Patrick Chung came down to defend Nyheim Hines on a pass he threw without looking to avoid pressure. He threw a pick in the red zone against the Bengals in Week 1 on a drive that would have otherwise yielding points. These things have to stop. Luck needs to begin getting more comfortable with the time the offensive line is affording him. He needs to settle down in the pocket and take the extra split second to see before he throws. His ball carriers need to secure the ball and stop batting it in the air. No matter what it takes, the turnovers have to stop. It makes winning football games extremely difficult.Game Time1pm ET Sunday October 21st, 2018LocationLucas Oil Stadium – Indianapolis, IndianaTV ChannelCBS – Spere Dedes and Adam ArchuletaRadioWFNI (1070 The Fan) and WLHK (HANK FM) — Matt Taylor (play-by-play), Jim Sorgi (color) and Caroline Cann (sideline)Referee AssignmentBrad Allen“Enemy” BlogBuffalo RumblingsTwitterFollow @StampedeBlue for the complete Colts coverage.FacebookLike Stampede Blue on Facebook!PodcastsApple Podcasts | Stitcher | Art 19 | SB Colts Cast YT Channel
