*The Colts picked up an additional third round draft pick from the Washington Commanders.*
Colts select OT Bernhard Raimann in third round
Bernhard Raimann fits the ideal mold of what it means to be a Colts offensive lineman, strong, versatile, and dependable. All of that sums up his time at Central Michigan. The former tight end transitioned to tackle in 2020 and has completely overachieved.
Sliding him next to a generational talent in Quenton Nelson increases his already adaptive ability to fully understand the position and improve instinctively and fundamentally. Naturally, his quickness derives from his athleticism and would be absolutely ideal at left tackle.
Raimann is easily coached with impressive ability, his molding personality would fit right into what Indy ultimately desire as a protector for their new QB.
Colts select WR David Bell in third round
The Indianapolis native and fan favorite stays close to home as the Colts make their final pick of day two.
This one is just too easy. Honestly, just what the offense needs, a sure-fire No. 2 receiver with potential to be a true No. 1 in the NFL. David Bell is a home-run third-round pick for Indianapolis.
Bell ended his senior season at Purdue with 93 receptions for 1,286 yards and six touchdowns in 11 starts earning first-team AP All American, Big 10 Receiver of the Year, and a finalist for the Biletnikoff Award.
