2011 NFL Draft Selections (Before Draft Begins)
Colts Draft Needs
OT, OG, SS, DT, RB
22. Indianapolis Colts Select: Tackle Anthony Castanzo
The Colts needed to get some help on the offensive line and I’m sure Peyton Manning is happy with this selection. Keeping Manning healthy is a top priority so this is a quality move for the Colts.
Draft Grade: B-
49. Offensive Guard Ben Ijalana
Peyton Manning has to be a happy man once again as the Colts continue to add young help on the offensive line.
87. Defensive Tackle Drake Nevis
Line help on both sides of the football were important for the Colts coming into the draft and sure enough they’ve added players in those areas.
119. Running Back Delone Carter
188. Defensive Back Chris Rucker
