Our own Josh Wilson posted his round-up of media observations of the 2013 Indianapolis Colts after their open minicamp practice on Wednesday. For this article, I'm pulling in some things you readers saw at the practice. Overall, it seems both media and fans are on the same page with who looked good on Wednesday.
From reader neel.matches:
- can separate and catch. He plays bigger than his measurables
- DHB looks smaller than his stats but is fast
- It's early, but if Ask KW puts on a few lbs he could be more than a returner
- Montori is a very big man
- Moore looks faster and smoother as a receiver than he did on tape - wow
- Luck looked like a vet yet again
From reader Bommit91_Go_Colts:
Like the reports from Indy beat writers and our own Stampede Blue bloggers, Greg Toler continues to impress in the offseason. His best moment of the day came when Luck threw to his check-down receiver, overthrew him quite a bit, and Toler made an impressive interception low to the ground that would have been a pick six. Actually, the defensive lines were practicing on that side of the field, and they stopped, cheered and let him run it in for a TD, fun moment. Something I also noticed that was interesting, Greg Toler was lining up against Reggie and Vontae was lining up against DHB.
Speaking of Vontae, he's really come out and looks like he's giving his 100% all the time. I remember watching Hard Knocks last year and I questioned his motor. It looks like he's "grown up", and his full attention is on practice and getting better. A very exiting thing to see.
From fans who responded to me on Twitter:
@stampedeblue Luck looked sharp on his passes, but this D looks dangerous, especially that big nasty d-line.— Ben Coe (@blcoe) June 13, 2013
@stampedeblue I thought Toler made some good plays. Landry is straight up yoked. I want his personal trainer.— Brad Russell (@br11) June 13, 2013
Toler, Whalen, Landry, Luck, and Moore seem to be the big stars of this offseason. It will be very interesting to see how their improvement will look at training camp in six week.
Counting down... NOW!
