Who Needs Fullbacks?


Apparently the Colts don’t.  Luke Lawton, the Colts lone fullback from last season, is gone.  The Colts traded Lawton to the Philadelphia Eagles for a condition draft pick.

Lawton was a nice player, but the Colts picked up 2 running backs (Rhodes and Hart) that will for sure make the roster and another who could be a practice squad player in Chad Simpson.

If the Colts can get a draft pick out of this, it would be huge.  The Colts always seem to get a great player in the later rounds, and getting another pick just increases that possibility.  I’m not sure what the conditions are, but it would be nice to get a 6th or 7th rounder out of a player who would probably be cut during training camp.
