Colts fans react to their first round pick

The Indianapolis Colts took Ryan Kelly with their first round pick (18th overall) in the NFL Draft tonight. It was the pick the media wanted, and the fans. Something that has not gone the Colts way in recent years. Remember just a season ago the Colts had, and still do, glarring needs along the offensive and defensive line.

Colts general manager: It’s weak to draft for need

When the Indianapolis Colts found themselves on the clock with the 29th pick in last year’s draft, many had them pegged to go after an offensive line, some defensive back help or a pass rusher. Instead, the Colts picked a speedster in the form of former Miami (F) wide receiver Phillip Dorsett. Not only was this seen as a reach, it most definitely didn’t fill a position of need...
