Colts take Tight End

In the fifth round, the Colts select Brody Eldridge, TE out of Oklahoma.  He’s 6’4″ 260, but also played some guard and center.  He’s a high character player.

He’s also played some fullback.

That might actually be why the Colts wanted him.

Barring a trade, they have three 7th round picks almost at the very end of the draft.

UPDATE:  Polian has described him as an excellent blocker, good in short yardage.  He’s clearly meant to be the big blocking TE/fullback.  No more Mike Hart as fullback.  That’s a very good thing.
