The Indianapolis Colts have signed fifth-round draft pick Josh Chapman, giving them six draft choices under contract.
Chapman is a 6-foot, 316-pound defensive tackle who anchored the middle of Alabama's defensive line last season. He tore the ACL in his left knee on Oct. 1. He continued to play with the injury and did not have surgery until January.
He finished his career with 88 tackles, 44 solo, 2 1/2 sacks, 13 1/2 tackles for loss and two national championship rings.
Indy has now signed all six of its third-day draft picks - Chapman, offensive guard Justin Anderson, running back Vick Ballard, wide receiver LaVon Brazill, linebacker Tim Fugger and quarterback Chandler Harnish - but nobody from the first two days of the draft.
