Potential Of Colts Rookies

I see all of these scouts determining who will be great in the NFL and who will be a bust. Does all of this really matter and can you trust them? To me, you cannot determine any rookie's potential in the NFL. Last year, the Colts got many "no names" through the draft like T.Y. Hilton. Hilton proved the doubters wrong, but how?

Hilton did not get good grades from scouts, but proved all of them wrong during his stellar season. In my opinion, a player's potential can only be determined by their passion for the game, learning ability, and the willingness to be great. Hilton possessed all of these characteristics and learning under Wayne helped him a great deal.

An example of great coaching was with our very own Colts last year. Our coaching staff deserves most of the credit with bringing out the best ability in our players. Many of our starters were rookies last year and were able to experience the fast pace in the NFL. This year, most of our picks will become starters (hopefully) and will have a similar effect.

Like last year, the Colts drafted players that love football and are great competitors. It is not for us to decide who will/can be great, because all of them can be with dedication and hard work. Bjoern Werner, Hugh Thornton, Khaled Holmes, Montori Hughes, John Boyett, Kerwynn Williams, and Justice Cunningham all have the hunger to be the best. This draft, Pagano wanted to bring in big, nasty, and talented players like he had in Baltimore. Pagano succeeded this need and the Colts are on the way to be the best again.

If you still want to trust in the NFL scout gradings of the players, go ahead. But that does not determine the potential in any rookies. Ask Hilton, he knows...
