INDIANAPOLIS -- The NFL draft is 3 1/2 weeks away. The Indianapolis Colts won’t pick on the first day -- May 8 -- they’ll have their first pick in the second round on Day 2. Trading into the first round is highly unlikely for the Colts because draft experts say plenty of talent will be available in each round.
Here’s a look at several notable second-round picks for the Colts over the years.
2012 TE Coby Fleener
Comment: 78 receptions, 889 yards and 6 touchdowns in two seasons. Had an increased role in 2013 because of the absence of fellow tight end Dwayne Allen. Fleener had 52 catches for 608 yards last season.
2010 LB Pat Angerer
Comment: Had a career-high 148 tackles during the 2011 season. Too bad the Colts were 2-14 that season. Injuries slowed Angerer down the past two seasons. He’s a free agent and won’t be back.
2006 DB Tim Jennings
Comment: Jennings recorded four interceptions in his four seasons with the Colts. Those four INT’s turned out to be not much because he had nine interceptions in 2012 while with the Chicago Bears.
2005 DB Kelvin Hayden
Comment: Spent six seasons in Indianapolis. He returned a Rex Grossman interception 56 yards for a touchdown in the Colts 29-17 victory over Chicago in Super Bowl XLI.
2004 DB Bob Sanders
Comment: Sanders won NFL Defensive Player of the Year in 2007. But like Angerer, injuries impacted Sanders. He only played in eight games in his final two seasons with the Colts.
2003 DB Mike Doss
Comment: Started 15 games and had 102 tackles and an interception during his rookie season.
1999 LB Mike Peterson
Comment: Had two seasons with at least 137 tackles and another season with 96 tackles to go with seven total interceptions during his four seasons with the Colts.
1995 TE Ken Dilger
Comment: Spent seven seasons with Indianapolis, with his rookie year being his best season when he caught 42 passes for 635 yards and four touchdowns.
