  Colts | T.Y. Hilton in rare company    Sun May 28, 12:40 AM

Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton's 5,861 receiving yards through his first five seasons rank in the top 10 in NFL history, but Hilton said he is still focused on improving. 'Leave no stone unturned,' Hilton said. 'I work on everything - footwork, speed work. Just continue to train everything - my hands, eye-hand coordination.'

  Colts | Clayton Geathers may not be ready    Wed May 24, 09:18 AM

Indianapolis Colts SS Clayton Geathers (neck) may not be ready for the start of the season as there is still no timetable for his return. 'I can't tell you when Clayton is going to be available for us, but he's doing everything as far as the rehab and the meetings,' head coach Chuck Pagano said. 'He's just not practicing right now. When the doctors say he's 100 percent and he's ready to roll, then we'll put him back out there.' S T.J. Green is practicing in Geathers' place.

  Colts | Malik Hooker, Clayton Geathers may start    Sat May 20, 03:07 PM

Indianapolis Colts S Malik Hooker (hernia, shoulder) and S Clayton Geathers (neck) likely will be the starting safeties in Week 1 if they are both healthy, in the opinion of ESPN.com's Mike Wells.

Footballguys view: Hooker was one of the best players in the 2017 NFL draft regardless of position. He can roam all over the field with his nose for the ball and burst to the play. Geathers can play close to the line of scrimmage and be used as a run-stopper.

  Colts | Tarell Basham signs rookie deal with Indy    Fri May 19, 04:10 PM

Indianapolis Colts third-round pick DE Tarell Basham signed his four-year rookie contract Friday, May 19. Financial terms of the deal were undisclosed.

Footballguys view: Basham has the size (6'4" 269 pounds) and heart that scouts love. He's a player who gives full effort on the field on every snap, and the nuances of his game are developing in the right direction. Basham has the length, burst and strong hands to be disruptive as a pass rusher. He does lack a ton of moves when getting after the quarterback, but that can be taught at the pro level. The rookie from Ohio has starter's upside if he continues to develop.

  Colts | Malik Hooker signs    Thu May 18, 11:58 AM

Indianapolis Colts S Malik Hooker, a first-round pick, signed his rookie four-year deal Thursday, May 18.

Footballguys view: Hooker is the 11th first round pick to sign with his respective team. The Chargers' Mike Williams - seventh pick overall - is the highest pick to have signed so far. Hooker has great ball skills but his tackling leaves a bit to be desired, so he's not going to instantly help the run defense.

  Colts | Marlon Mack signs rookie deal    Wed May 17, 05:18 PM

Indianapolis Colts fourth-round draft choice RB Marlon Mack signed his four-year contract with the Colts Wednesday, May 17. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Mack measures in at 5'11" 213 pounds, but he has the skill set of a smaller back. He can maneuver around defenders at the second level, and Mack has "Adios" speed when he gets to the corner. Mack runs blind between the tackles and looks to take the rock to the corner store too often as a runner. If utilized the correct way, Mack can certainly make plays as a part-time player. In 2017, the rookie from USF will compete for snaps behind starter Frank Gore.

Footballguys view: Riles was the Ragin' Cajuns leading receiver in 2016 with 60 receptions for 729 yards and two touchdowns. He caught at least one pass in 29 straight games dating back to 2014 and was one of the most consistent players on offense. Riles was originally a safety and linebacker in college before switching to the wide receiver position.

  Colts | Big leap coming from Erik Swoope?    Fri May 12, 10:26 PM

Indianapolis Colts TE Erik Swoope said he believes the coaching staff is expecting a lot from him this season, and Kevin Bowen of Colts.com believes the decision not to draft a tight end indicates the Colts are comfortable with Swoope as their No. 2 tight end.

Footballguys view: Swoope didn't play college football, but he was picked up by the Colts on a flier and he's been developing at the tight end position. A basketball star at Miami, Swoope is your classic "hoops to football" convert and plays with great athleticism. He'll compete for targets behind 2016 breakout player Jack Doyle.

  Colts | Donte Moncrief wants more YAC    Wed May 10, 09:45 AM

Indianapolis Colts WR Donte Moncrief wants more yards after catch after his 2.5 yards after catch ranked 106th of 119 qualified receivers last season, according to Pro Football Focus.

Footballguys view: He's in a contract year and has flashed potential, but injuries and inconsistencies have marred his game over the last two years. Moncrief has just one game of 75 or more yards in his last 23 games.

  Colts | Donte Moncrief looking to improve    Tue May 9, 03:25 PM

Indianapolis Colts WR Donte Moncrief wants to increase his yards after the catch this season, whether that's by getting into space or moving around the formation.

Footballguys view: Moncrief has never been known for gaining yards after the catch. His YAC per reception average last year was one of the worst in the league at 2.5 yards. Moncrief is in a contract year, and fantasy owners are considering him a WR3 with uspide.

  Colts | High praise for Donte Moncrief    Tue May 9, 02:23 PM

Indianapolis Colts WR Donte Moncrief has already caught the eye of new wide receivers coach Sanjay Lal. Lal said Moncrief is a 'piece of clay' that has all the tools to be one of the better receivers in the NFL.

Footballguys view: A third-round pick in 2014, Moncrief is entering his contract year in 2017. He was disappointing last year, playing only nine games and gathering in just 30 catches for 307 yards. Moncrief did score seven touchdowns, so with more catches and yards he could be a improved fantasy player. He's going off the board at WR30 (6.04) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Colts | Malik Hooker to receive a chance    Tue May 9, 10:31 AM

Indianapolis Colts S Malik Hooker will receive every opportunity to win a starting job, in the opinion of beat writer Mike Wells. Hooker returned three of his seven interceptions in 2016 for touchdowns, and the Colts didn't return a single one for a score in 2016.

Footballguys view: Hooker is rangy and plays with high football intelligence. He'll do a good job of reading the play as it unfolds in front of him, and Hooker has the athleticism to make it to the ball swiftly.

Undrafted free-agent WR Bug Howard (North Carolina) signed an undisclosed contract with the Indianapolis Colts, per his agent, Saturday, April 29.

Footballguys view: Howard is a big receiver who might lack the quicks to be more than a bottom of the roster possession receiver, although the Colts don't have anyone else on the roster like him, so we'll be watching him this summer. He was part of a talented offense built around #2 pick Mitchell Trubisky.

  Colts | Quincy Wilson could start right away    Sat Apr 29, 06:13 PM

Indianapolis Colts CB Quincy Wilson will be given every opportunity to win the starting cornerback job opposite CB Vontae Davis.

Footballguys view: The Colts also got centerfielder Malik Hooker in the first round, so the job of their corners will be easier since he has such great deep range. Wilson is aggressive and physical and should pair well with Davis.

  Colts | Marlon Mack added to Indy's backfield    Sat Apr 29, 02:04 PM

The Indianapolis Colts selected South Florida RB Marlon Mack at No. 143 in the 2017 NFL Draft Saturday, April 29.

Footballguys view: The Colts need help in the backfield, and they get a potential gamebreaker in Mack. He has what scouts call "Adios speed" as he's incredibly swift with the ball in his hands. Mack runs larger than his size (213 pounds) and can run through arm tackles consistently. He'll have the potential to take over in the Colts backfield when Frank Gore's days in Indy are done.


  Colts | Indianapolis selects Tarell Basham    Fri Apr 28, 10:25 PM

The Indianapolis Colts selected DE Tarell Basham with the 80th pick in the 2017 NFL Draft Friday, April 28.

Footballguys view: The Colts are serious about that defense. He's solid against the rush, something the Colts need, but isn't a great pass-rush threat.


  Colts | Indianapolis selects Quincy Wilson    Fri Apr 28, 08:26 PM

The Indianapolis Colts selected Florida CB Quincy Wilson with the No. 46 overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft Friday, April 28.

Footballguys view: Wilson lacks elite speed so people are projecting him to safety but he can play corner. He's a confident, aggressive player who is another piece to what looks to be a nice secondary for Indianapolis.


  Colts | T.J. Green staying at safety    Fri Apr 28, 05:13 PM

  Colts | Malik Hooker likely out until camp    Fri Apr 28, 05:07 PM

Indianapolis Colts S Malik Hooker (hip, hernia) likely will be sidelined until training camp because he is recovering from hip and sports hernia surgeries, according to head coach Chuck Pagano.

Footballguys view: This shouldn't be a big deal for a defensive back. As long as he's ready to go to start the season, the Colts will be fine.

  Colts | Indianapolis selects Malik Hooker    Thu Apr 27, 10:00 PM

The Indianapolis Colts selected Ohio State S Malik Hooker with the No. 15 overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft Thursday, April 27.

Footballguys view: Hooker is a bridge troll safety - you think you're safe and can toddle along to make your reception when BOOM - a big, nasty ballhawk comes and takes it away. Yes, he's inexperienced and yes he has some issues tackling, but he has the upside to be a huge factor once he gets a little seasoning.

  Colts | Andrew Luck has been playing injured    Mon Apr 17, 07:16 PM

Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (shoulder) said he first injured his shoulder during an early season game in 2015. Luck said he made the decision to undergo surgery and does not have a timetable for his return.

Footballguys view: Luck has shown great toughness in playing with this injury. He tried to rest and get better, but that didn't work. Surgery repaired his shoulder, and now Luck is on the road to recovery. We should see him limited in training camp and the preseason. As of right now, there is no concern about Luck missing Week 1 of the regular season.

Indianapolis Colts exclusive rights free-agent WR Quan Bray and TE Erik Swoope signed their tenders Monday, April 17.

Footballguys view: Swoope is the player to watch here. With Dwayne Allen deal away to the Patriots, Swoope will have a larger opportunity for snaps and he could be the Colts starting tight end. The former basketball star in college at Miami never played a down of college football. He was a project when the Colts picked him up as an undrafted free agent in 2014, and now he may be ready for a large role.

Footballguys view: The Giants were never giving him that deal, considering the price range of their defensive line. Hankins is a decent player and should help a pretty bad Colts defense.

Footballguys view: Hankins has a pretty rich price tag...or at least that's what the speculation is. There's a reason why he's just not simply back with the Giants. The Dolphins are reportedly interested too.
