Film Room: RB Jordan Wilkins vs Baltimore Ravens , preseason week two With the news that Marlon Mack may not be ready to start the season the running back position is very much a question mark. Because of this,ormance of the running backs from the Coltsí second preseason game against the Ravens. Weíll take a look at Christine Michael, Nyheim Hines, and Jordan Wilkins, and compare their performances and abilities as we prepare for the contest with the 49ers that will likely have a big impact on who gets the lionís share of the carries once the regular season arrives. Jordan Wilkins Ė 6í1Ē, 216lbsJordan Wilkins is, in my opinion, the best back of these three. Given time to develop he might be the best running back on the roster. Iím not ready to write off Marlon Mack, because I believe that he offers a skill set Wilkins doesnít, however, there are some undeniably great things Wilkins does that none of the others do. This play is a prime example of what there is to love about Wilkinsí ability. On this play the offensive line gets manhandled. Wilkins is hit 3 yards behind the line of scrimmage. His response is to stay balanced, get skinny Jack Doyle Jersey , and take the ball for a 7-yard gain. We have watched so many backs over the years who have failed to be able to get yards when hit in the backfield that watching Wilkins consistently do this is refreshing.Here we see one of the keys to Wilkinsí success. After the handoff, he has just a momentís hesitation before he hits the hole. In this case, that hesitation is enough time for Ryan Kelly to hand off his defender to Quenton Nelson and get his hands on the linebacker at the next level. Then it is just a matter of keeping low and keeping his legs churning, and Wilkins is pushing the pile for another 8 yards.Sometimes patience can be a problem, but here, it simply allows all the proper blocks to develop. It makes the difference between a two yard gain and an 8 yard gain. Maybe over time we will see issues arise because of this hesitation, but they arenít showing up here.On second and short and in the red zone, Wilkins demonstrates the ability to forgo his patient style and hit the hole when it is there. He manages to get a decent gain as well as a first down, putting the team right on the doorstep of scoring.The biggest issue with backs who hesitate and wait for blocks to develop is that sometimes they do that to a fault. Trent Richardson probably considered himself patient, but mostly he just danced around in the backfield and then slammed into the pile. Here, Wilkins shows that when the pathway is clear, he can be decisive and go.Fumbles are always a concern Authentic Adam Vinatieri Jersey , and it is definitely something Wilkins has to fix. Despite the outcome being a positive one, running backs coach Tom Rathman will have had some things to say about this play in the meeting room, and you could tell watching Wilkinsí face as he walked off the field that he was pretty irritated about it. This happens, especially with rookies, but it canít become a trend. It wonít matter much if he gets ten yards every time he runs the ball if he canít hold on to it. It doesnít take long to lose the trust of the coaching staff and fumbling is a quick way to do it. Hopefully this is the worst we see of fumbles for Wilkins.This play represents some improvement over last week. Wilkins struggled in pass protection in his first game, and while this wasnít great, it was better. Wilkins needs to pick up the defender coming off the edge to buy Brissett some time to step up in the pocket and throw. He is a bit out of position and gets beat, but quickly recovers, and along with a nice move by Brissett, is able to get a block that gets Brissett free. Thatís better than Braden Smith can say, since he has to hold his man and gets flagged. Pass protection is something a lot of rookie running backs struggle with. It will be critical that Wilkins develops here, and already we are seeing him do better. With Rathman coaching him up Youth T.Y. Hilton Jersey , he should only get better.ConclusionBased on the film we have seen so far, Jordan Wilkins is the hands down best back of these three we have looked at.We have seen him repeat his solid performance two weeks in a row. The only thing left is to see it repeated against top competition. My takeaway from this exercise is that when Robert Turbin returns from suspension and Marlon Mack is healthy, this could be a very impressive running back group, and I expect these rookies to have prominent roles in it.Colts vs Eagles: Week three snap counts Another week is in the books, and the Colts dropped a tough one on the road to the defending Super Bowl Champion Philadelphia Eagles. It wasnít pretty, but it was a lot closer than just about anyone could have guessed this game would be when looking at the schedule back in the summer. There are a lot of things to learn from this game, and the snap counts are a great place to look to start the process of breaking down the teamís performance. Letís take a look at the numbers and see if anything jumps out this week.Offense#PlayerPositionOffensive SnapsPercentDefensive SnapsPercentSpecial Teams SnapsPercent#PlayerPositionOffensive SnapsPercentDefensive SnapsPercentSpecial Teams SnapsPercentNotesThere continues to be good continuity on the interior of the offensive line with Nelson, Slauson, and Kelly all getting in on every offensive snap. That consistency has to help out the tackles, who have experienced no such consistence. Eric Ebron filled in the Jack Doyle rule in this contest, and it was with mixed results. The blocking Doyle provides was noticeably lacking, and Ebron proved that maybe his best role is playing as a complementary piece.Nyheim Hines dominated the snaps at running back , more than doubling Jordan Wilkinsí snaps.Defense#PlayerPositionOffensive SnapsPercentDefensive SnapsPercentSpecial Teams SnapsPercent#PlayerPositionOffensive SnapsPercentDefensive SnapsPercentSpecial Teams SnapsPercentNotesThe Colts defense had more snaps this week than in any week this season. This is likely directly related to the offensive ineffectiveness. The Colts had 5 players who got in on all the defensive snaps this week: Clayton Geathers, Darius Leonard, Kenny Moore, Nate Hairston, and Malik Hooker. Given their youth, this young core getting these snaps is critical to the teamís development.Margus Hunt, who has been a force on defense was in on 84%of the snaps, continuing to be one of the most consistent defensive linemen in terms of playing time and contributions.Matthias Farley was in on just 9 snaps defensively. This seems likely because the Colts wanted to deal with the Eaglesí tight ends and explains why Anthony Walker got more playing time by a wide margin than he has in previous weeks.
