With almost a full season done, let's look at how our rookies dud. I'd love to get opinions since in Miami, all I get are stupid Dolphins games and all I have are mainly box scores to go by. What do you guys think about this class so far and what are you expecting in the future?

I really like how Werner evolved towards the end of the year. He started off slow this season then got hurt, but IMO has looked pretty solid since he came back.

2nd Round traded to Miami for Vontae, great trade...well as long as we re-sign him.

Hugh Thornton was trusted into the fire early with the injury to Donald Thomas. I will chalk this year up for him, with valuable experinced earned.
I think he was played decent, nothing great or anything.

Khaled Holmes is the opposite of Thornton, didnt get early opportunity to contribute so hast been able to make any contribution towards end of season. Jury is stil out, needs to stay healthy.

Montori Hughes, I think has a bright future. He was hurt towards the end of year but I really like him.


Kerwynn Williams
John Boyett
Justice Cunninham

are no loner with team, so nothing else needs to be said about them.

In the NFL Gen forum someone started a thread asking for 'You're teams.... MVP, OPOY, DPOY, ROY'

Mine were
MVP - Mathis
OPOY - Luck
DPOY - Freeman (no repeats)
ROY - NONE
Werner and Thornton were the only ones to get substantial playing time and both struggled for most of the season
Holmes was a healthy scratch most of the season and in some games was active and didn't play.
Hughes was also a healthy scratch not as much as Holmes but had some playing time before going out with an injury just as his playing time increased

And of course as W87R mentions the 3 players no longer on the Colts

Altogether I give this draft class a C- (if you include Davis in the equation I would increase that to a B-)

I would say Werner would be our ROY but that is by default. With that said Werner and Thornton both showed signs of improvement the the last several week. I think Thornton will be our starting RG next season while Werner will still split time with Walden.

Any thoughts on how Werner performs next year?

I thought Thornton was our best rookie this year and that Werner disappointed a little. Hopefully Werner peforms a bit better next year.
