Kuharsky took a look at a potential pressing question from each of the AFC South’s fan base.
For the Colts, Kuharsky analyzed some of the high profile free agents that the Colts signed this offseason before focusing on Darrius Heyward-Bey.
Kuharsky alludes to the fact DHB was a top-10 draft pick back in 2009 and talks about the ups and downs the speedster has dealt with in his four seasons in the NFL.
(Kuharsky writes…) A parade of quarterbacks and coordinators certainly made it difficult for him to succeed. But he doesn’t catch the ball well, and that’s an issue that tends to linger for some guys. DHB may be a great target for Andrew Luck and may fit in nicely to Pep Hamilton’s offense, along with Reggie Wayne and T.Y. Hilton. But third-down drops kill drives, and if he doesn’t prove himself to be reliable, Luck could wind up looking other directions at crucial moments.

The holiday weekend did not stop King from grinding out another must read.
In this week’s piece, King addresses the NFL pushing the 2014 draft back into the month of May.
(King writes…) Talked to one personnel czar last night on the phone. “Hate it. Absolutely hate it.” Saw one owner at dinner last night, and he said (sarcastically) his GM “would just love this … more time to obsess on final decisions he made a month ago.”
King points out that teams are going to have three more weeks to now work playes out and this will drain out and already lengthy draft process.
