Soft and warm,
I long for his charms
I'd sing like a violin
If I were in his arms
Wish I knew if he knew
What I'm dreaming of
Tammy ... Tammy ... Tammy's in love"
That's for all you Debbie Reynolds fans out there (all three of you still living). For my generation, we only know Debbie Reynolds because she sired Princess Leia, who is forever burned into my mind wearing that Jabba the Hutt metal bikini. Say what you want about Jabba (fat slug who was evil and enjoyed feeding strippers to his pet), he did know how to dress da ladies. I also cite the "Tammy" song because this Colts draft profile will focus on Kentucky TE Jacob Tamme. Yep, you guessed it. His last name is pronounced "Tammy." Pretty swift, aren't I?
With Ben Utecht likely departing for the Cincinnati Bengals, the Colts have some depth issues at TE. And, while TE is not necessarily a position of need, the loss of Utecht forces the Colts to address the position. Incorporating this new priority into the needs theme, a player like Tamme could add depth to the TE position and provide a very good special teams player; maybe even an ace.
Tamme is an intriguing prospect in that many think his upside could be similar to Dallas Clark's. His main deficiency is blocking. If Tamme could block, he'd be a first round pick. His strengths are impressive:
Tamme is projected to go in the fourth or fifth round, and with his skills and high character, the Colts could very well snatch him there if he is still on the board.
