More notes on Key Dawson in Indy's camp

Here's what I think Colts fans...according to the now world-famous NYTimes Magazine article written by Michael Lewis, we know that a few NFL teams have become increasingly interested Texas Tech's game video and ask for a copy after every Tech game.

I don't think it would be too far a leap to suggest that the Indianapolis Colts are one of the teams requesting the video. After all, wouldn't one offensively minded team want to learn from another?

Is it any real shocker then, that Indy has more than a few Texas Tech kids running around the facility? I count Key Dawson, Dylan Gandy and free-agent rookie Gabe Hall. Not to mention former Raider and Colt Montae Reagor.


Keyunta Dawson: Sure, he's a rookie and he's only 6-foot-3 and 254 pounds. But Dawson is already impressing in camp as a disruptor whether he lines up at defensive end or defensive tackle. The Colts may not want him out there in short-yardage situations, but he could throw off the rhythm of running backs with his ability to shoot the gap, similar to the way Montae Reagor did the last couple of years, and that would allow others to swarm in for the tackle. As an added bonus, Dawson can put some terror into quarterbacks on passing downs.

Colts fans - I recommend watching the Tech vs. Minnesota Insight Bowl video on for a taste of Texas Tech football - you won't be disappointed at the end, I promise.

Way to go Keyunta (we call him "Key") Dawson!
