With six of the first 135 picks in this year’s draft Riley Ridley Jersey , the Colts had more draft capital than many other teams.consult before using those picks, however. General Manager Chris Ballard said that the team has steadily shrunk the size of their draft board over the course of his tenure with the team and expects to continue doing so in the years to come.“I’d say this year we had 170 players on the board which is way down from where it was before,” Ballard said, via Albert Breer of SI.com. “I think last year we were at 220, I can’t even remember the number from my first year. But yeah Greedy Williams Jersey , it makes it easier to navigate when you have fewer names that you know fit what you want. I think when we really get it right, and we get it down to about 125, 150, that’s when we’ll have really honed down exactly what a Colt is for our schemes. And not only from a player perspective, how he’s going to fit on the team Sione Takitaki Jersey , but also from a character perspective.”Regardless of how many players are under consideration, you still have to pick the right ones once you’re on the clock. Ballard hit on that front in 2018 and more of the same this year should only make it easier for the Colts to stick with the same approach for years to come. PHILADELPHIA (AP) — The Super Bowl MVP gets the first start of the season.Nick Foles will be under center when the defending champion Philadelphia Eagles host the Atlanta Falcons on Thursday night.Coach Doug Pederson made the announcement on Monday, one day after a testy exchange with reporters in which he insisted he wanted to wait before ruling out Carson Wentz.“In the best interest of everything about the football team and this decision, Nick Foles is the starter Week 1,” said Pederson Sheldrick Redwine Jersey , who wasn’t scheduled to speak to the media and plans to answer questions at his regular news conference on Tuesday.Foles wasn’t available Monday and will speak on Tuesday.Wentz still hasn’t been medically cleared for contact as he comes back from surgery last December to repair two torn ligaments in his left knee. Foles was spectacular in the playoffs and helped Philadelphia defeat New England 41-33 to win the franchise’s first NFL title since 1960.“We’ve had a lot of success with Nick,” offensive coordinator Mike Groh said. “We’ve got a lot of confidence and faith in Nick and the way that he’s going to play and the way that guys are going to play with him.”Wentz didn’t play in the preseason and only recently returned to full practice. Foles struggled in two preseason games, had several turnovers and didn’t lead the offense to any points on 14 drives.“I have really very positive feelings about Nick and the way that he’s played,” Groh said. “I can only relate it to my experience and being with him on the same team as Nick is on. And again, a lot of confidence in Nick and the way that he studies and prepares himself to play and to play at a high level. …. We’re very fortunate to have Nick Foles on this team.”NOTES: WR Alshon Jeffery (shoulder) Austin Seibert Jersey , WR Mack Hollins (groin) and TE Richard Rodgers (knee) didn’t practice Monday. Wentz (knee) and RB Jay Ajayi (foot) were limited.
