The Indianapolis Colts have put together a talented tight end room with multiple incredibly large humans that are all athletic.
Over the last two years, the Indianapolis Colts have been building what could be an impressive tight end room. Led by former basketball player, Mo Alie Cox, Indy has drafted three other tight ends in the last two drafts. Kylen Granson, Jelani Woods, and Andrew Ogletree are the other top tight ends behind Alie-Cox.
Between these four, it’s evident that the Colts had a theme in mind when they were adding all of these tight ends. That theme was big and athletic. All four of these tight ends are physically imposing and move really well for their size. While everyone knew they were big, a recent picture illustrates just how massive Indy’s tight end group is.
The Colts recently released a video of Matt Ryan mic’d up at a training camp practice and in that video, Ryan approached tight ends Jelani Woods and Mo Alie-Cox to go over something and many noticed how Woods and Alie-Cox towered over the 6-foot-4 Matt Ryan.
Colts have impressive size at tight end
The official heights and weights of Indy’s tight ends are Alie-Cox at 6-foot-5, 267 pounds, Granson at 6-foot-2, 242 pounds, Ogletree at 6-foot-5, 260 pounds, and Woods at 6-foot-7, 253 pounds. Together, they should be able to create a productive passing offense in the middle of the field.
Indy’s safety, Julian Blackmon, who has to guard these tight ends daily said, “They are giants. I feel like I’m in the Redwoods.” Chris Ballard said, “those big targets, they’re always open,” and that’s why the Colts got them all together.
Between the run game, which will certainly be dominant again this season, and these massive tight ends that can wreak havoc down the middle of the field, Indy is set up to be a nightmare for teams with its play-action offense. Hopefully, these big bodies can lead to big plays and some big wins for the Colts.
