NFL Draft 2015: Colts Select OL Denzell Goode


With the 255th pick in the NFL Draft, the Indianapolis Colts selected Denzell Goode, offensive lineman from Mars Hill University.

The Colts closed out the draft with an offensive lineman, a position the team has taken every year since 2003.

Goode played a Division II school and there isn’t much information on him as a prospect. He measures in at 6-7 and 320 pounds. He transferred there from NC State. Goode is a two time First-Team All-South Athletic Conference for 2013 and 2014. He never played a down against an FBS opponent.

The pick represents a clear need as the Colts could use help along the offensive line. Most national analysts saw it as the more pressing issue for the team as they entered the draft, ignoring the glaring holes on defense.

Scouting reports call Goode a “mauler” and state that once he gets his hands on a player, they are done for that down.

Goode will be facing an uphill battle to merely make the final roster, being a seventh round pick. The Colts are also hoping that Ulrick John can develop into a solid tackle as well.

We’ll have more information on Goode as we dig through scouting reports and film.
