Earlier this week, we talked about how Indy’s first pick in the draft, Rock Ya-Sin has the intangibles the team covets. With his second pick in the draft, Chris Ballard drafted TCU edge defender Ben Banogu. While it wasn’t overly surprising to see Ballard pick a player like Banogu, as he carries the same potential as Kemoko Turay did last year Malik Hooker Jersey White , most were likely surprised that he would be selected so early. Widely considered a project player without a true position, there is little doubt that Banogu will offer Matt Eberflus a lot by way of flexibility. Will that translate into high-level production at any one position? This is the question that likely gave a lot of talent evaluators the greatest pause.What would give Ballard and his scouting room the confidence to pull the trigger on a player like Banogu this early in the draft?Sure, you can start answering that question by pointing out that Banogu set an NFL Combine record with a 11’2” broad jump, the longest ever by a defensive lineman. You can point out that he had the sixth fastest 40-yard dash among edge defenders at 4.62 seconds, finished ninth with 23 bench reps, had the highest vertical jump at 40”, finished seventh in the 3-cone drill (.01 second slower than coveted rusher Brian Burns) and fourth in the 20-yard shuttle (faster than coveted rusher Montez Sweat). Still Womens Peyton Manning Jersey , there were certainly better athletes at his position available in the draft. There were also arguably much better positional fits who wouldn’t carry as many questions about role in the NFL. One of the biggest reasons Chris Ballard had such a great deal of confidence in Banogu’s ability to be an impact player in the Colts defense is his football IQ. Stampede Blue’s Zach Hicks broke down how you can identify this trait on a film review earlier this week. One of the biggest things that jumps off of the page about Banogu on film is that he is incredibly efficient at diagnosing plays and identifying misdirection. Coupling that ability with this athleticism makes him valuable on the field, in the film room, and projects well for his ability to help lead on the field.In his post-draft press conference Chris Ballard had the following comments on how they evaluate Banogu and the kind of potential his brings with him to the Colts:The part that adds to all of this is the confidence one would easily get in Banogu’s ability to work, learn, and develop if they knew more about where he comes from and the kind of character brings to his team and the work ethic he brings into his preparation. He is a player who has overcome adversity, moved up from lower levels of competition — starting at Lousiana-Monroe, and took a chance on himself by moving up to TCU.Banogu didn’t play football until seventh grade Womens Malik Hooker Jersey , missed a year of high school football with a bone fracture, and didn’t move to defensive end until he was a senior. Clearly, he took to that position very quickly. A former quarterback, Banogu had to put on a considerable amount of weight and dedicate himself to changing his body.He notes that people have given him reasons that he won’t be able to make it to the NFL throughout his career. Some have said that he is too small or too slow and he uses those comments as fuel to get better. He notes that it is a big concentration for him to not just become better but to help makes his teammates better. Perhaps the best way to share a bit about who Banogu is to share videos where he has a chance to speak for himself. This is a young man who understands what it takes to outwork everyone else in order to get where you want to go and who I have little doubt will do whatever it takes to make an impact in Indianapolis.It is clear that Banogu is the type of player who exhibits the mental toughness to handle adversity and overcome obstacles to win football games in a grueling NFL season. He is the type of player who will always have his teammates’ backs and will value and appreciate the hard work that people around him put into their craft. Putting a young man like him into a locker room full of other players with the same kind of work ethic is an exciting prospect.It is no wonder why Chris Ballard thought so much of him to pull the trigger earlier than others.

With less than two weeks to pass before we see Chris Ballard’s third pull as GM, there are still very differing views on where the team will go with their first selection.Looking around at the litany of mock drafts from various analysts (here via Colts.com) we see so many going in one particular direction. However Andrew Luck Jersey White , this specific position doesn’t seem to fit Ballard’s approach. On the other hand, perhaps the second-most common pick is precisely what the Colts should be targeting and fits not only the needs of the team, but the roster building process laid out by Ballard since his time in Indy begun.What gets interesting is when we start to see those picks pop up which fit a direct need, fit the philosophy, but don’t appear to be gaining much traction with the draft community. Many consecutive years the draft community has pegged the Colts in dire need of a pass rush. Granted, the current roster has gotten some help through the past draft as well as recent free agent acquisitions, but a dominant Andrew Luck Jersey , young force at the position is still very much a need one way or another. Yet, very few are handing the Colts defensive ends in their recent mocks.We also touch on the latest Colts news, speak briefly on the current state of the roster, and discuss how the Colts may approach their first three selections this year.Please subscribe, rate and review the channel anywhere you listen to podcasts.Follow our hosts on Twitter: @MDanelySB | @HolderStephen | @TheStable_PodStampede Blue Podcast Links:Apple Podcasts | Stitcher | Megaphone | SB Colts Cast YT Channel | Google | Spotify
