Is Keelan Cole the NFL’s next big-time receiver? Catch of the year?We’ve all seen Keelan Cole’s absolute jewel of a grab at least one hundred times over the past twenty-four hours. Cole towered over New England Patriots cornerback Eric Rowe with a perfectly timed jump and enveloped the Duke like it was a tennis ball in a hypnagogic moment that put time at an absolute standstill.When the Jacksonville Jaguars opened up their preliminary media availability at the beginning of the 2018 offseason Womens Andrew Norwell Jersey , one of the names were not like the others. Despite finishing the 2017 season with the highest yards per catch in the entire NFL (18.4), not even the most ardent of Jaguars fans thought that Keelan Cole had arrived. Based on Cole’s selection among franchise faces including Jalen Ramsey, Calais Campbell, and Leonard Fournette, this coaching staff was obviously in disagreement.You shouldn’t be surprisedCole isn’t the biggest (6’0” 194-pounds) or the fastest (4.59 40-yard dash at his pro day) receiver, yet he somehow still managed to catch the eye of the Jaguars scouting department despite playing at second division Kentucky Wesleyan. In college, Cole plied his trade in from of a 3,000-person maximum capacity home crowd. Players that are shrouded in such obscurity need to demonstrate an elite trait (usually speed) or pure dominance at his level of competition, and based on his testing numbers, Cole obviously didn’t exhibit the former. The latter, however, was written in plain view. Since becoming a full-time starter his sophomore year, Cole didn’t finish a single season with less than 1,300 receiving yards. He had 21 receiving touchdowns as a true sophomore and averaged close to 25 yards per catch as a senior. Over his four years as a Panther, Cole broke almost every school receiving record that was held previously by Secdrick Robinson.As of the beginning of the 2017 season, only 90 division two players were on NFL rosters, including the practice squad. Regardless of his domination at the division two level, the odds of him earning a tryout Youth Donte Moncrief Jersey , let alone a final 53-man roster spot, hovered around five percent. So why is he special?He’s married to the gameIn a conversation with Dan Hellie earlier this year, Keelan Cole shared that he doesn’t watch TV or Hulu or Netflix at home. He simply can’t be bothered with those types of distractions if he wants to become the best at his position. Instead, he winds down by firing up YouTube clips of all the receiving greats. Moss. Rice.OBJAlways observing, always gleaning. Cole’s insatiable appetite to learn and bolster his route tree is an enormous reason for his quick and unexpected development. Going up against the NFL’s top cornerback tandem on a daily basis doesn’t hurt, either. Jaguars wide receiver coach Keenan McCardell seems to coach Cole the toughest of all his wide receivers, and the reason for that is probably because he sees so much potential in Cole. But perhaps its more than that.Perhaps its because he sees a bit of himself in ColeMcCardell was a 12th round draft pick by the Washington Redskins out of UNLV in the 1991 draft. When you compare that to the present-day seven round draft model, that doesn’t even make McCardell a priority free agent. McCardell never even donned the Redskins uniform despite earning a Super Bowl ring on injured reserve and was cut after the 1991 season before latching on with the Cleveland Browns. When comparing his career arc with Keelan Cole’s thus far, the advantage for Cole is shocking; the potential incalculable.And he’s becoming more completeNot only is Cole enhancing his route running, separation, and spectacular catch making ability, he’s becoming a well-rounded receiver. While no play tops his highlight reel snag, his block on Dede Westbrook’s game-clinching touchdown catch was paramount to sealing last week’s game.Unlike Cole’s velcro catch, this isn’t just a hand-plucked highlight of one big play. Cole has amped up his aggressiveness at the point of attack in the wake of losing veteran leader and marquee run blocker Marqise Lee, and his coaches have noticed. In an interview after the game, Cole was asked how he made that catch. The undrafted gem replied with this:Moss. Rice. OBJ. Better add Cole to that YouTube playlist. Following a bye week, and less than stellar start to the first half of the season, the Jacksonville Jaguarshit the road to take on the AFC South rival Indianapolis Colts at Lucas Oil Stadium on Sunday. This is a must-win game for Jacksonville to keep its slim AFC South title hopes alive. Hopefully the Jaguars were able to use the bye week to correct the on-the-field issues that were plaguing the team Blake Bortles Jersey , as well as try to get the team chemistry and morale up. Jacksonville is basically in survival mode from here on out, and cannot afford to lose if it wants to make it back to the postseason. It’s time to get back to our weekly history lessons. Let’s recap the head-to-head series between the Colts and Jaguars. Series historyAll-time regular season series record: Colts lead 22-12Last Jaguars win: Dec. 3, 2017 (30-10)Last Colts win: Jan. 1 2017 (24-20)Current Streak: Jags with a two-game winning streakBiggest Jaguars win: 51-16 (Dec. 13, 2015)Biggest Colts win: 43-14 (Sept. 25, 2000)Interesting takeaway: Jacksonville swept Indianapolis last year, and that was just the second occurence ever that the Jaguars were able to win both games against the Colts in the same season (2011-2012 season was the first time). Quick thoughts: The Jaguars have defeated the Colts in four of the past five contests, but Indianapolis had won all six games prior to that. Looking at the full history, the Jags and Colts only met twice prior to the conference realignment in 2002. Indianapolis (AFC East), beat Jacksonville (AFC Central), in both of those contests. Then the Colts won the next three games while both teams began competition in the AFC South. Jacksonville finally got its first win against Indy in 2003, and another one the next season in 2004. The Colts hold a large advantage overall, but the series is tied at seven wins a piece since 2011. Previous MatchupWinner: JaguarsScore: 30-10Date: Dec. 3, 2017Location: EverBank Field, JacksonvilleTeam Stats: Jaguars — 338 passing yards, 96 rushing yards, 22 first downsColts — 174 passing yards, 141 rushing yards, 17 first downsQuick recap: Blake Bortles tends to beat up on the Colts Authentic Brandon Linder Jersey , and he did so twice in 2017. On this particular day, Bortles completed 74 percent of passes for 309 yards, two touchdowns and zero turnovers. Leonard Fournette added a touchdown, and Josh Lambo tacked on a couple of field goals. A lot of wide receivers got involved with Marqise Lee securing seven catches for 86 yards and a touchdown, while Keelan Cole had 49 receiving yards and a score, and Dede Westbrook added six catches for 78 yards. The defense had a strong performance with four sacks and two interceptions. Brad Nortman even completed a pass. It was a great all-around performance — man, I miss 2017.Prior MatchupWinner: JaguarsScore: 27-0Date: Oct. 22, 2017Location: Lucas Oil Stadium, Indianapolis Team Stats: Jaguars — 330 passing yards, 188 rushing yards, 23 first downsColts — 200 passing yards, 96 rushing yards, 15 first downsQuick recap: Even without Leonard Fournette, the Jaguars rushed for 188 yards on the legs of T.J. Yeldon and Chris Ivory. This was another strong performance from Blake Bortles, who had 330 passing yards, one touchdown, zero interceptions and a quarterback rating of 124.7. The defense was incredible, sacking Jacoby Brissett 10 times and holding Indianapolis to just 232 total yards. This was also Josh Lambo’s first game as a Jaguar Youth Jalen Ramsey Jersey , and the kicking game concerns from the previous weeks of that season were quickly put to rest as he made all of his extra point and field goal attempts. This was pure domination by Jacksonville, and the end result was the Jaguars’ first shutout win since 2006. Through the Decades1990s: Colts 1-0 (1995)2000-2010: Colts lead 14-52011-Present: Tied 7-7Quick thoughts: While the Colts dominated early, winning eight of the first 10 matchups overall, it is the Jaguars that have been making a comeback. The Colts held the advantage in the 1990s (granted, that was only one game in Jacksonville’s first year as a competing NFL franchise) and early 2000s, but Jacksonville has closed the gap. As mentioned earlier, the series is tied with seven wins each since 2011, and since 2008, Indy’s advantage is just 11-9. Indianapolis easily dominated from 2000 through 2010, which gives them the lopsided advantage in the series overall. But perhaps times are changing. This year’s matchup is an important game for both teams currently sitting at 3-5 and looking to make a run after an unspectacular start. The Colts have won two in a row and are humming on offense, but their defense leaves a lot to be desired. Meanwhile, the Jags have struggled with giving the ball away, lack of protection and lack of a run game on offense, while the defense has not made enough of the necessary big plays (turnovers, sacks, etc.) to mitigate the offense’s ineptitude. Something has to change this week, and I think it does. The Jags get the big divisional win on the road. Which team do you believe walks away victorious in this AFC South battle?
