Today’s player interview is Texas defensive end Charles Omenihu. The Colts are looking for more help to their pass rush and the talented, lengthy Omenihu could provide just the boost they need.The interview will be towards the bottom of the page as we talk about his meetings with the Colts, what he looks for on film, and what his best fit is in a 4-3 defense.BackgroundSize:6’5” 280 pounds with 36 inch armsMeasurables: 40 Time: 4.92 / 10-yard split: 1.71 / Vertical Jump: 36.5 inches / Broad Jump: 115 inches / 3-Cone: 7.48 secondsCareer Stats:115 total tackles, 30 tackles for a loss, 16.5 sacks, 1 pass deflection, and 4 forced fumblesFit with the Colts:GM Chris Ballard has put a huge emphasis on finding pass rushers this offseason. One possible solution to that need would be adding lengthy pass rusher Charles Omenihu. At 6’5” with 36 inch arms, Omenihu is a massive human being who can split his time playing at defensive end or defensive tackle. He developed a ton as a pass rusher in his years at Texas, turning in a career year with 9.5 sacks in 2018. For the Colts, he’d solve their immediate need for big run stuffing defensive ends in base packages then he could move inside as a penetrating 3-tech on passing situations. His versatility and length would be a huge asset for the Colts.Film RoomHis length and insane get-off are evident on every snap. Shoots up field with quickness off of the line that allows for him to be stout both against the run and pass.Hand usage is really developed with him. Combine that with his length and relentless pursuit and you have a high upside pass rusher.He was also a standout all week at the Senior Bowl to top it all off.InterviewZH: You really broke out your Senior season at Texas, notching 9.5 sacks and being named Big 12 Defensive Lineman of the Year. What was the key, in your mind Nyheim Hines Color Rush Jersey , to finally breaking out?CO: I think it was my preparation. I think it was an understanding of what I’m good at and trying to perfect it and yeah I think those things are what really helped me out.ZH: After an impressive career with the Longhorns, you were invited to the Senior Bowl. How was that experience for you both on and off the field?CO: It was good. I really enjoyed it. The experience I really enjoyed and the competition atmosphere. I think it was something that I really thrived in and I think I did very well. I’m glad that I was able to go there, do well, and just help myself and really raise my stock.ZH: After the Senior Bowl, you also received an invite to the Combine. How different were those two events for you?CO: I had my invite to the combine right after the Georgia game so I had that in my mind and I was ready to prepare for that very early. It was good though man. The combine was a good experience and something that was a once in a lifetime kind of deal and I think I did well. I really think I just helped myself honestly.ZH: Over the course of those two events, you met with the Colts reportedly three times. How did those meetings go?CO: Yeah man the meetings with the Colts have been good. I had an interview with a guy from their front office at the Senior Bowl and then I had another meeting with them at the Combine. It has been good though, it has been everything that I thought and I mean I guess the Colts are interested and I’m just blessed for those kinds of opportunities. ZH: Jumping to your on field play, you are a versatile guy. You can play inside at DT or on the end even. Where would you say that you fit best in a 4-3 defense?CO: Oh defensive end. I’m versatile though and I can play either or and I think naturally just because it comes to me that I can rush inside if needed. I do think I’m just a versatile player who could do well at both.ZH: A big thing that I always hear with pass rushers is having a pass rush plan. What all goes into having that plan though?CO: A lot of studying before the game to be prepared. That’s the big thing, you got to have a plan before you even step on the field or else you’ve already lost one step on the competition if you really don’t have that plan going in and know how you are going to attack that offensive player. ZH: The biggest things that pop on your tape are your get off and length. How do you use those two traits to effectively beat offensive tackles?CO: So get-off is the start off you know. That puts pressure on guys and kind of gets offensive lineman ailing and then when you combine that with a stab right there, it is a shock to them and they don’t know how to handle that and that makes it kind of easier I think. If they are going to give me their hands then you chop it you know, club it down and you are rolling, you are after the quarterback.ZH: What is your go-to pass rush move?CO: Stab club. I think that is my thing. I mean its the one move that I try to perfect and it is something that I just generally just like to use. It works so why go away from it, you feel me?ZH: Film study is important for every position in football. What do you watch specifically though as a defensive lineman on film?CO: When I’m watching opposing offensive lineman , I’m really just looking for how they are set, their angles, their hands (like when they shoot their hands), their timing.. So I’m really into that and I really study that deeply in order to just be one step ahead. If you can go into the game one step ahead of your opponent, you’ve won 50-75% of the battle already in my opinion. ZH: Last two questions here are going to be Colts centered. First one is that the Colts need a premier pass rusher. A guy who can get after the QB on every down and really disrupt plays. Can you be that guy for the team?CO: Yes. I think me having that role... I already take so much pride in my studies and my craft but knowing that a team could prop me up and trust me enough to say “Hey you are the guy that we want to go after that quarterback and want to see go get those sacks”, I mean it would be a disservice to myself honestly if I don’t pin my ears back and do that and disrupt the passer from day one.ZH: Lastly, how great would it be to play on a defense that features excellent young players such as Darius Leonard and Malik Hooker? CO: It would be very exciting man. It would be an honor to play alongside those guys and we would just be wreaking havoc. We’d be out there looking to go get it and make some big plays so I would definitely be all for it. INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Andrew Luck might be playing the best football of his career.He’s still going to need help reaching the playoffs with mounting injuries threatening to derail the Indianapolis Colts‘ late postseason push.One week after starting center Ryan Kelly went down with a left knee injury and one day after coach Frank Reich announced tight end Jack Doyle would miss the rest of the season with an injured kidney, Luck and his teammates started preparing for the closing five-game stretch that will determine whether they end a three-year playoff drought.“We’ve done it before,” tight end Eric Ebron said Tuesday said when asked about the adjustments. “Everybody has to take on a heavier workload.”Doyle was injured late in the third quarter or early in the fourth, returned for two plays before leaving for good and then wound up in the hospital Sunday night for what Reich called a “procedure.”The team provided no immediate update on whether Doyle had been released from the hospital during Tuesday’s availability.The adaptations start with Ebron, the lone remaining healthy tight end among the five listed on last week’s depth chart. He’s already caught 11 touchdown passes this season, matching his previous four-year total and tying Dallas Clark’s single-season franchise record by a tight end and has played the way Detroit envisioned when it made Ebron a first-round draft pick in 2014.It’s unclear whether Mo Alie-Cox, Ryan Hewitt or Erik Swoope could return from injuries this week. All three were inactive last weekend Jacoby Brissett Jersey , and Reich’s offense has benefited from creating mismatches among the tight ends.“We are hopeful and optimistic that some of those guys — one or two or all three of those guys — will be ready,” Reich said Monday. “They have been making good progress.”But the hits have come hard and fast for Indy (6-5), which has won five straight to jump back into the playoff conversation.Kelly missed last week’s game with a sprained medial collateral ligament and without him, the Colts allowed their first sack in six games. Luck went 249 consecutive drop-backs without being sacked, the longest streak of his pro career.Kelly’s status for this week is still to be determined though he said Tuesday he felt much better and was running on the treadmill.“It’s been progressing pretty well,” said Kelly, who was replaced in the lineup by midseason signee Evan Boehm. “The brace has helped.”Not enough?Running back Marlon Mack entered the concussion protocol during the fourth quarter Sunday, did not return and now his status also is in doubt this weekend.If he can’t go, the Colts will be down to their two rookies — Nyheim Hines and Jordan Wilkins — and possibly Jonathan Williams, presuming nobody else is signed. Williams hasn’t played since Indy signed him to the practice squad Oct. 2. He was promoted to the active roster last week.One saving grace for Indy: Rookie linebacker Darius Leonard escaped a serious knee injury that briefly knocked him out of Sunday’s game after the first offensive play. Leonard returned and finished the game and continues to lead the NFL with 114 tackles despite missing one game in October.But losing Doyle may create the most damaging impact for Indy.He followed his first Pro Bowl selection with 26 receptions for 245 yards and two touchdowns in six games. The Colts went 1-4 when he missed five games earlier this season with a bad hip and they had won all four since his Week 8 return against Oakland.Doyle’s absence leaves a big hole on the field — and in the locker room.“It hurts,” Ebron said. “I’m more hurt because of the type of player he is and what he means to the team and to me. But we’ve done it before. We just have to adjust a few things.”
