What You Need to Know:

  • Ryan finished as the QB17 last year, his worst finish since 2009.
  • He finished as a QB1 only 4 times, maxing out as the QB3 twice.
  • Losing Julio Jones (free agency) and Calvin Ridley (only 5 appearances) put the Atlanta offense at a severe disadvantage.
  • Ryan’s 7.1 YPA marked his lowest since 2013. His 20 TDs matched a season-low going back to the 2009 season.
  • His adjusted completion rate and PFF passing grade all fell close to his career averages, though. We’re not worried about a sharp decline here.
  • The Colts traded for Ryan in March, giving them a stable successor to Carson Wentz.
  • Indy’s current pass catching corps is unproven beyond Michael Pittman, an ascending WR1.
  • Alec Pierce arrived in Round 2 of the draft. He brings plus size and speed and showed an ability to win in contested situations. His route running is still raw, though.
  • Parris Campbell projects as the #3. While loaded with ability, he’s played only 15 games in 3 seasons.
  • At TE, Indy lost Jack Doyle to retirement. They’ll roll out a deep, supersized unit that includes Mo Alie-Cox, Kylen Granson and rookie Jelani Woods.
  • In the backfield, Jonathan Taylor returns to ensure this unit is run-first. Indy ranked 28th in pass-rate last year in year 1 under OC Marcus Brady.
  • The 2021 Colts ranked last in situation-neutral pace.
  • Indy’s O-line lost LT Eric Fisher to free agency. Matt Pryor is the likely replacement, and we don’t see much of a drop-off here. There’s continuity elsewhere along the line.
  • Ryan, now 37, has remained durable. He’s missed only 3 games in his 14-year career and played all 17 a year ago.

Draft Sharks Bottom Line:

Despite an advanced age, Ryan remains an above average starting NFL QB.

The fact that he ranked as the QB17 last year — despite an awful supporting cast — should be seen as a positive.

His situation improved a bit with the move to Indy. The issue here is pass volume and the lack of a rushing ceiling. You can safely avoid the veteran as a QB1 target, but he'll be someone to consider as a spot-starter.
