Day 2 Review

Colts did pretty good during Day 2.

They got Pat Angerer, linebacker out of Iowa. They say he is just like Zach Thomas. Here is a little snippet profile of him from NFL.com:

Angerer is an undersized linebacker that has been a very productive two year starter for the Hawkeyes. He is a tough competitive player that leverages the ball well. He understands angles and run fits well but gets smothered too often by offensive lineman. Angerer is best when covered up and likely needs to be in a scheme at the next level that will let him free flow to the pile. Angerer is a good athlete but may have some limitations in pure man coverage. He is a solid open field tackler but doesn’t pack a punch on contact. Angerer is a good football player that is limited some by his size but should contribute on special teams and in a backup role as a rookie.

Indy also got Kevin Thomas, cornerback out of Southern Cal. Here is what NFL.com has to say about him:

Thomas was a starter for only one season at USC. He has a good combination of size and athleticism for the cornerback position but doesn’t have great strength in block protection or in tackling in run support. His length enables him to make plays on the ball, but he is inconsistent to re-route receivers off the line of scrimmage. He is an inconsistent reactor which makes him vulnerable to double moves and losing leverage in coverage as well as in run support. Thomas breaks down well in space but isn’t a reliable open-field tackler. He runs well, but his technique (footwork, transition angles, etc.) need to improve for him to be consistently effective in both man and zone coverages. Thomas has the talent and size to develop into an effective NFL cornerback, but he needs to improve in several areas as well as answer durability concerns at the next level.

Looking forward to Day Three.
