Tell was not rated high as a safety in the Anthony Arena Memorial 2019 NFL Draft Guide but will likely not play at that position for the Colts. He also played on special teams all four years with the Trojans and that will certainly help him have a chance to make the roster in what is becoming a rather crowded defensive backfield.He reminds me of Pierre Desir, in that he has great length at 6í2Ē, 198 lbs. and doesnít have a blazing 40 yard time ó although his 4.57 second time at USCís Pro Day is good enough. He put up a 42Ē vertical jump, which was third among all defensive backs; a 136Ē broad jump, which was second; ran a 6.63 second three-cone, good for second; and a 4.01 second 20-yard shuttle, good for third.As we can see above, Tell is another rare athlete the Colts coaching staff will have the chance to mold into something more at the next level. How well he transitions to corner is hard to project but there is another important trait to acknowledge. Tell not only was a well respected player on his team who stayed for four years Jabaal Sheard Jersey , even though he likely could have been drafted after his junior season, but also worked really hard in the classroom and in preparation for life after football. He is another clear locker room fit and should continue to build upon the culture Chris Ballard has been working hard to create.His best college season came as a junior where he tallied 85 tackles, 2.5 for a loss, 3 interceptions, 2 passes defensed, a fumble recovery and a touchdown ó earning him a nod as first-team All-Pac-12. For his career, Tell tallied 220 tackles, 6.5 for a loss Pierre Desir Color Rush Jersey , .5 sack, 5 interceptions, 13 passes defensed, one forced fumble, one fumble recovery and a touchdown. The Colts have stumbled over the last two weeks, squeaking out a win against the Dolphins and coming out totally flat on offense against the Jaguars. Where a few weeks ago this was a team that was firing on all cylinders, the offense has been struggling to find its way. On the defensive side of the ball, the Colts had a nice effort and hopefully found some things to build on as they will head to Houston this week to play their most important game of the season against the Texans. Letís take a look at the snap counts from this week and see if there is anything to be learned from them.Offense#PlayerPositionOffensive SnapsPercentDefensive SnapsPercentSpecial Teams SnapsPercent#PlayerPositionOffensive SnapsPercentDefensive SnapsPercentSpecial Teams SnapsPercentNotesChester Rogers got just 1 snap on offense. His play certainly hasnít warranted more https://www.coltsfanshop.com/Kemoko-Turay-Jersey , but it is interesting to see Zach Pascal get 42 snaps and Rogers getting just 1. Given his less than stellar work as a return man, it seems as though Rogers is unlikely to be a part of this team in the future.Nyheim Hines led all the way for the running backs in snaps with 46. Marlon Mack had just 28. Hines has pretty commonly gotten more snaps than the other backs because of his abilities on passing downs. However, he outstripped Mack and Wilkins by too much here. This was a game where the Colts needed to run the ball more, and simply gave up on it too quickly.Eric Ebron played in 76% of the snaps, which continues to be about double his normal since the loss of Jack Doyle. It is becoming more obvious as Ebron plays more that his strengths lay in being used as a red zone weapon and a supplement to the rest of the offense, not as the primary tight end. The Colts had Erik Swoopeand Ryan Hewitt in on just 17 total snaps combined. The loss of Jack Doyle clearly changed how they use their personnel, moving them away from relying on as many instances of 2 and 3 tight end sets.Defense#PlayerPositionOffensive SnapsPercentDefensive SnapsPercentSpecial Teams SnapsPercent#PlayerPositionOffensive SnapsPercentDefensive SnapsPercentSpecial Teams SnapsPercentNotesYet again this week we saw Kemoko Turayís role reduced to just 15 snaps. Tyquan Lewis getting healthy has really put a major dent in his role on the defense.Al Woodsí low level of snaps makes it very likely that we should expect to see Ballard investing a draft pick in an interior defensive lineman. He is older anyway, but his role has continued to be scaled back in favor of younger and faster guys. Nate Hairston has been relegated to only special teams. What a surprise after last season when he played so well. Matthew Adams had one of his best games Anthony Castonzo Jersey , and was involved on defense a good bit more than his normal. It was certainly nice to see the rookie making an impact, despite a terrible penalty called on him.Malik Hooker was in on every single defensive snap, yet he was blanked on the stat sheet. While we know he is playing hurt and likely isnít back to his former self after his ACL/MCL tear, this isnít great. Scheme certainly plays a role, as this one isnít really playing to his strengths. It is also not totally surprising given how the Jaguars threw the ball so short. Still, it is surprising that a player could be in on every snap and not have any statistical impact.Special Teams#PlayerPositionOffensive SnapsPercentDefensive SnapsPercentSpecial Teams SnapsPercent#PlayerPositionOffensive SnapsPercentDefensive SnapsPercentSpecial Teams SnapsPercent
