Found an itneresting article about new Colts' UDFA OT Andrew Tyshovnytsky over at the colts.com fan forum: http://www.nypost.com/p/sports/more_sports/speedy_tackle_ws9JpTauxjeP1Uqtj3ox0L
Props to them for digging up some info on him. When I went to CBS's draft prospect data base they didn't have any analysis, other than his season-by-season breakdowns and pro day numbers, as mentioned in the article. Basically he's an experienced, 6-4, 317 pound LT with sub 5.0 40-speed, great strength (won a strength and conditioning award in college and did well with his bench reps at the Fordham pro day, according to the article) and experience starting at both tackle positions (most recently RT his senior year). I remember him being on the Walter OT ranking for most of the year, but recently he's fallen off, for whatever reason. I don't know much about the offensive schemes of Fordham vs. those at Hillsdale, where Jared Veldheer went, but their profiles read pretty similarly. Any insight on why this guy fell? The NY Post author says he would be a late-round steal or "priority free agent" and judging by the fact he was just signed yesterday, it doesn't look like he was a priority for the Colts, or maybe they were just in negotiations with him.
I think we have reason to be excited about this guy. I don't think he's a day one competitor for either starting tackle position, given what I've read, but I'd like to see him do well enough in camp to make the actual roster over the PS, so he could be in line to takeover for Diem or CJ/Ugoh (if need be) as early as next season and some other team can't snap him up in the meantime...that is unless I'm missing some glaring red flags. Again, I don't know much about Fordham, so any insight would be appreciated.
