The Colts’ defense definitely turned some heads in 2018 despite a first-year defensive coordinator and so many young pieces contributing throughout the year. Today we focus on the defensive line, a group that had some great performances this year, but also needs an infusion of talent just the same.Margus Hunt and Jihad Ward, two guys at opposite ends of their career, could be said to headline the Colts’ free agent group, along with Al Woods. Hunt has continued to be productive despite his being undersold before signing with the Colts and doing it in two different defensive systems. His age, and what Ballard sees as his legitimate expected production to be in 2019 will play a huge role in whether he is brought back or not.Woods, who like Hunt is 32 right now, but as a sort of a one-trick pony against the run game Indianapolis Colts Anthony Castonzo Jersey , his future with the Colts may be in doubt, but Ballard has been known to throw out some surprises. Ward, on the other hand, presents youth, solid production with limited experience as well as the versatility the team is hoping to acquire to build around this up-and-coming defense. Amongst the rest along the line, it’s fun to think of Kemoko Turay, Tyquan Lewis, Al-Qadin Muhammad all developing into a solid rotation of young talent, while the team still has the services of Jabaal Sheard and Denico Autry on the roster. Grover Stewart and Hassan Ridgeway were basically designated run defenders, but they too are young and you can see that only a move here Cheap Adam Vinatieri Youth Jersey , or a move there this offseason could give the unit a monster boost for the 2019 season.There is a very interesting group of NFL free agents along the defensive line who are looking to be available, and a draft class that offers plenty of intrigue as well. How it all shakes out will be extremely interesting to watch as this unit could provide a ton of change for the Colts between now and training camp.Please subscribe, rate and review the channel anywhere you listen to podcasts.Follow our hosts on Twitter: @MDanelySB | @HolderStephen | @chrisblystoneStampede Blue Podcast Links:Apple Podcasts | Stitcher | Megaphone | SB Colts Cast YT Channel | Google | Spotify Haason Reddick LB/DEReddick burst onto the scene at Temple and managed 22.5 tackles for a loss and 9.5 sacks in 14 games as a senior. He carried hype into the Senior Bowl, where he was moved to inside linebacker and impressed those in attendance. His performance in Mobile translated into a soaring draft stock and culminated in his selection with the 13th overall pick of the 2016 NFL Draft by the Arizona Cardinals. Since being drafted, Reddick hasn’t really progressed in NFL standards. He has recorded 51 tackles and 4.5 sacks in limited playing time but his workload and snap count have decreased. Reddick would be a huge addition to the Colts defense. Adding him to a young athletic group that includes Darius Leonard, Kemoko Turay, Malik Hooker and Anthony Walker Jr. would bring another dimension to the current group’s skill set. Reddick is a versatile piece that Colts defensive coordinator Matt Eberflus could deploy in many ways. Having the athleticism to line up at LB and DE would be huge. Importantly, Reddick has shown ability to create pressure as a pass rusher and the ability to drop back in coverage. The perceived drawback seems to be Reddick’s inability to pick up NFL defensive schemes. He struggled in the Cardinals previous 3-4 defense, after changing positions, and according to Jason La Confora Indianapolis Colts Margus Hunt Jersey , he appears to be struggling to pick up new head coach Steve Wilks’ 4-3 defense. Additionally, while his versatility can be viewed as a strength, it is also may also result in a “tweener” conundrum — where it is difficult to determine Reddick’s best position and how he should be used. Eberflus’ defense is simplistic and prides itself on putting younger guys in positions to win by using their natural athletic abilities. If true, Reddick could be a perfect fit. Eberflus has already shown the ability to move his defensive pieces around in order to make plays. Denico Autry lines up all over the defensive line, Margus Hunt plays inside and out, Clayton Geathers plays both safety and dime linebacker, so it’s possible this scheme would be great for a player like Reddick whose value could be maximized by moving around and playing multiple roles.Compensation: mid round draft selection, in the third or fourth round.Likelihood: 20%. The fit is ideal but its hard to determine whether the Cardinals are ready to give up on a first round pick from two years ago. If Cardinals General Manager Steve Keim is willing to move Reddick, Chris Ballard may jump at the opportunity.
