BJOERN WERNER’S COLTS COACHES COMMENT ON THE FIRST ROUND DRAFT PICK

Posted by Kevin Bowen on June 6, 2013 – 7:30 am

Over the past few weeks you’ve heard Bjoern’s Werner’s high school coach rave about the type of person that the city of Indianapolis will be getting in the Colts 2013 first round pick.

His college coach Jimbo Fisher lauded Werner’s never-ending motor.

But how about his newest coaches with the Indianapolis Colts?

Defensive line coach Gary Emanuel has already watched Werner pick the brains of veterans Robert Mathis and Cory Redding in an effort to try an absorb as much knowledge as possible at the NFL level.

“He’s a sponge – very good in the classroom,” Emanuel said. “He’s just a football junkie. He likes being around the building. Everything I’ve seen from Bjoern leads me to believe he should have a great career.”

Throughout OTAs, linebackers coach Jeff Fitzgerald has been working Werner on both sides of the Colts four-man linebacker look.

Werner primarily played with his hand in the dirt during his time at Florida State but has made the transition to a standup role.

“We are just trying to bring him into the whole picture. He’s going to learn his responsibilities,” Fitzgerald said.

“What I see from him is the ability to play RUSH linebacker or SAM linebacker somewhere down the road. He’s setting his feet. I think we’ve got him in the right spot right now but we will have flexibility in time, as he develops.”

Unlike last season, Colts rookies across the board are not needed to be pressed into starting roles from day one.

That might eventually come, but for now Werner finds himself among some talented outside linebackers and that’s music to Fitzgerald’s ears.

“Ideally it’s going to be a good problem,” Fitzgerald said of the depth at outside linebacker. “We are going to have some good players sitting on the sidelines with us during games. We are going to have to give these guys different packages, get everybody involved.”

“What happens is that when you have these type of tools, it allows you to be a little bit more creative with these things and third down is a big part of creation and devising different ways and means of doing things.”
