The Colts are no longer drafting Zone only Corner Backs

 

The Colts are no longer interested in zone only corners, if they wanted a zone only corner these guys would still be on the team.

 

Daymeion Hughes – "Lacks top playing speed, is slow transitioning off the line and struggles in man coverage" He got a lot of playing time his rookie year, but it disappeared when Larry Coyer took over.

 

Michael Coe - NEGATIVES: "Does not show great downfield speed or a second gear. Marginal closing burst."  Coe got plenty of playing time his rookie year, but that also changed when Larry Coyer took over.

 

Marling Jackson 4.52 forty time Marling is a great zone CB, but he is too one dimensional for the Coyer version of the Cover-2.  When he was healthy he was still limited to part time duty.  It is reported that he will move to FS for the Eagles, a move that was predicted during the days leading up to his draft in 2005

 

Once Larry Coyer arrived the slow footed zone only CB’s are an endangered species on the Colts roster.  The CB’s on the roster now all have the speed to play both man and zone.  They all have forty times in the low 4.4’sJackson .   

Jacob Lacy - forty time 4.36

Jerraud Powers- forty time 4.39

Kelvin Hayden - forty time 4.36

TJ Rushing - forty time 4.40

Terrail Lambert - forty time 4.37

One exception was Tim Jennings who had the speed to play both man and zone, but they let him go because he just wasn't getting the job done.  That doesn’t change the fact that the remaining CB’s are much faster than the Colts CB’s that have been cut when Larry Coyer took over.
