2017 Colts Rookie Camp News — Marlon Mack, Zach Banner…

Twitter @CFBMetrics

As I am doing research for dynasty rookie drafts, I come across some articles and notes from local reporters on lesser-covered or off the beaten track rookies at training camps…or just nice observation notes on all the young players. I’m going to share some of them with you on players you might be interested in…


It may not be a sexy fantasy topic, but I’ve wondered why Zach Banner ruined his draft value by carrying so much weight. He looks like a nose tackle. Apparently, Indy sees the same — and they plan to get him into better shape. if they do, Banner might be an impact player protecting Andrew Luck in 2017 (and beyond).

Who else railed against Laquon Treadwell and Jameis Winston from the jump in their draft years? What will we discover with our computer scouting models in 2017?

For a completely different scouting service, visit Originally designed for NFL personnel departments, it has become home to the high stakes dynasty and fantasy profiteers – come see why that one person in your league always finds all those players ahead of everyone else…or become that person.
