Hooker had surgery in Jan for the Hip and the Groin, Pagano said he will be ready for camp. Was one of the Colts Top-30 visits. Pagans said they never expected him to fall because he was a Top 10 talent

Hooker grew up a Colt's fan, Joseph Addai fan.

I couldn't be happier with that pick. We haven't had a real star on defense in years. Since Mathis fell off. I'm looking forward to seeing a heavy defense draft with runningback/OL possible as well.

Great Pick!!
Malik Hooker S tOSU never expected him to fall this far.

Safety Net: Colts Pick Up A Hooker

Selection Maliked On Twitter

Stallyns Pleased

Apparently fell due to injury concerns, but a Top-10 Talent. Mike Tanier of Bleacher Report:
I lean toward the "savant," with the caveat that Hooker is nowhere near as physical as Thomas, and offseason hip and hernia surgeries may set back the start of his NFL career. Hooker may strictly be a deep safety in a league that prefers all-purpose players at the position

Just 3 days ahead of the draft, not sure what my schedule will be like for Thursday since I never control that. Hope to follow closely but not certain that is in the cards.

My ideal draft would be:
1 - CB Gareon Conley

2 - DE/LB Takk McKinley or Tim Williams (I know, pinch me, more likely Carl Lawson is available here )
3 - ILB Anthony Walker (would not be opposed to Joe Mixon if still available here )
4a - RB Marlon Mack, D'Onta Foreman or Samarje Perine
4b - CB Corn Elder
4c - OL or DL
5 - another EDGE or WR/TE


My ideal trends would be:
- two RBs, two QBs and at least 1 WR/TE get selected in the first 15 picks to push defensive talent down.
- Marshon Lattimore is the only CB taken in the first 14 picks
- if Conley, Lattimore and Humphrey are gone then Charles Harris is available because he is my fall back plan after the top 3 CBs.
- not opposed to taking an OL, just would prefer defense in the first 3 rounds. I DO NOT WANT Cam Robinson or Garrett Bolles. I wouldn't be upset if Ramczyk or Lamp are the pick though I feel both are reaches.
- I would prefer trading down in the first over trading out completely.


Perhaps now you can bring closure to your interest in the Gareon Conley Rape Case.

Quote:
And now per TMZ, there are allegations that Gareon Conley raped a woman in a hotel in Cleveland, no arrest/charges yet. A police report has been filed and Conley adamantly denies it.

If true BYE BYE NFL career. If not here goes your La'el Collins draft moment.


Quote:
An update on the Gareon Conley rape accusation, A video from the hotel bar shows Conley and the accuser talking and laughing 25 mins before they got on the elevator. Her story in the police report is that they first met in the elevator.


Quote:
Allen and Foster both have injury concerns, Conley has the rape accusation

Eventually we will have: Hooker at SS, Geathers at FS, we will likely use Butler as a slot CB/nickel S and TJ Green rotating in from time to time.

Hooker is recovering from his surgeries and I'm not 100% sure about Geathers recovery from his neck injury last year so Green might see more time in OTAs. Hopefully that helps him gain some more confidence/experience for down the road. The coaching staff wants to utilize Geathers as a nickel LB at some point in time.

Now we just need a starter opposite Davis.

Hoping he'll be fine injury wise because if he is we got 1 heck of a pick in Hooker. Great job by the team.

R3-80 Edge Rusher Tarell Bashem Ohio

Not really read up on him. Charles Davis seems to like him so that might be a thing. Position hits the spot so that is a positive.
