"Moncrief has big-play ability and we saw him do that," coach Chuck Pagano recently told the team's official website. "He's going to have more opportunities going forward."
"This guy can make plays," Pagano said. "He's big. He's fast. He can stretch the defense, all those types of things. It's a learning process, and he's going to be better in Year 2 than he was in Year 1.
"He's got such a high ceiling and room for improvement. The sky's the limit for him," said Pagano.
The Colts don't designate their targets as X, Y or Z receivers, asking players to learn each position. The playbook slowed Moncrief's progress out of the gate, but the 6-foot-2, 220-pounder took off in Week 8 with seven catches for 113 yards and a touchdown against the Steelers. We saw that explosiveness once again in a two-score, 134-yard outburst against the Redskins in Week 13.
It's a crowded house in Indy, but Moncrief looms as a good bet to do more of that in 2015.
