The Colts had a nice draft, with some solid players that could be impact players in the near future. 1st Round -- Bjoern Werner -- Defensive End / Outside Linebacker -- Florida StateA lot of people are saying that Werner will have a tough transition to stand up outside linebacker. Here's the thing, the guy is so athletic and so versatile that I bet you a switch would be quite easy for him. Werner is a very good all around player who can rush the quarterback (12 sacks), and was impressive at containing the running game. It's actually a surprising part of his game. Werner would most likely start behind Erik Walden, but he has a good chance of taking over as the starter midseason, especially if Walden is not impressive. Werner will definitely see a lot of time, and at times could see the field more than Walden.3rd Round -- Hugh Thornton -- Offensive Guard -- IllinoisThe Colts' biggest need was the guard position. The Colts addressed that need by getting Thornton. Thornton is an underrated guard from Illinois and is very versatile. He can play any position on the line, and although he's a tackle, he projects very well as a guard. He's a strong guy with pretty good footwork. He has tons of potential as a guard, and there have been a lot of good transitions from tackle to guard. Jahri Evans was an example of that. Because of the lack of talent at the guard position, Thornton could easily compete for the starting guard spot. He has great potential at the position.4th Round -- Khaled Holmes -- Center -- USCHolmes missed most of last season, but in 2011, he was very impressive and did well against a bunch of top defensive tackles. He does struggle against nose tackles, especially one on one, but with help, he's pretty good. He does very well against 4-3 defensive tackles. Holmes, for now, is a backup, probably 3rd string center, and adds some depth at the guard position (which he can probably play). Holmes is a stout center with a lot of potential.5th Round (Used 2014 4th round pick to trade up) -- Montori Hughes -- Defensive Tackle -- Tenn Martin Getting Montori Hughes is a good pick. Many have said that Hughes has 2nd round talent, but because of his off-the-field issues and his dismissal from school, his draft stock dropped quite a bit. His biggest problem isn't talent or ability, it's getting that talent out of him and to keep him in check. If the Colts can do that, and I'm positive they can, then he can become a starter on the team. There's always that chance that these troubled guys create trouble in the locker room, but the Colts are tight and have motivational and passionate coaches that should help. It's not like he's going into a divided locker room with new coaches. He should be fine.6th Round -- John Boyett -- Safety -- OregonI had a 7th round-UFA projection on Boyett. He's a good safety that hits well and tackles very well. He must improve in his coverage a bit, but that's Pagano's speciality. The coaches should train him in that regard. The reason I like this pick is because he'll sit behind Landry and Bethea and if ever one of them gets injured (especially Landry which is a good possibility), then Boyett could step in and maybe do the job. He can play in the box and can almost be that 3rd inside linebacker. I view this pick as a depth pick, because there was almost no depth at the safety position.7th Round -- Kerwynn Williams -- Running Back -- Utah StateWilliams is small, quick running back that was solid at Utah State. For now, he'll be fighting for a roster spot against Delone Carter and some other undrafted free agents. Williams may beat out Carter because Williams brings in a special teams aspect that Carter cannot match. He returns the ball very well and could be a returner. He can play on all special teams, whereas Carter can only play on a few. Also, he fits better as a 3rd down running back that can catch and run well. Carter isn't a very good catcher, or at least not as good as Williams. Williams does more than Carter. Although Carter may be better at running, it could be Williams' versatility that beats him. Should be an interesting battle.7th Round (Mr. Irrelevant) -- Justice Cunningham -- Tight End -- South Carolina Cunningham was an interesting selection. The Colts are pretty loaded at tight end, with starters Dwayne Allen and Coby Fleener, and Weslye Saunders as a solid 3rd stringer. Cunningham could make the roster, but that probably means he'll have to beat out Saunders, which could be tough. Saunders was pretty good last year, which only makes things tougher. Making the roster will be tough, but there is a very good chance that they will put him on the practice squad. I don't think they drafted him, to just throw him away.Overall Grade: A- I've been pretty generous with all my grades this draft, and this A- is little above average compared to the other teams. The Colts found some nice prospects in the later rounds and addressed their needs early on. They found a stud player in Werner and got some O-lineman in Thornton and Holmes. They did well and made picks that will only help their team.
