RTC: Analyst's take on Donte Moncrief

Here's Monday's Colts' Reading the Coverage. ...

  • Phil Richards of the Indy Star writes about what analysts had to say about receiver Donte Moncrief, the Colts' third-round pick. ESPN's Mel Kiper: "His route running needs work, but there's nothing more Moncrief can show as an athlete after running 4.40 and leaping 39.5 inches in the vertical, and he put up those numbers as a 6-2 wide receiver weighing in at 221 pounds. It's hard not to bet high on that workout."

  • Mike Chappell of the Indy Star continues his series looking at former Colts. His latest is on former defensive lineman Ellis Johnson. Johnson, a first-round pick in 1995, uses his pilot's license, which he earned while still playing, on a regular basis. "I've flown everywhere and I love it," he said. "Having your own plane opens up the world to you. I can fly anywhere, makes no difference. I like scuba diving and I can just get in my plane and go someplace. I go down to the Keys all the time."

  • Kevin Bowen of Colts.com also writes about the roles of Moncrief and outside linebacker Daniel Adongo in the future during a Twitter Question & Answer session.
