6 best late-round Draft steals for Colts in the last 20 years
3. Pat McAfee, P, Round 7, Pick 222, 2009 Draft
Punters are people too, and that’s why Indianapolis selected Pat McAfee out of West Virginia in the final round of the 2009 NFL Draft.
At the time, this probably wasn’t a selection that fans paid much attention to, but over time, it became a pick that fans are very thankful for.
McAfee not only became one of the league’s best punters during his time with the Colts but he was the most fun punter and took the popularity of specialists to a new level.
Playing his entire eight-year career with Indy, McAfee gave the league everything. From booming punts to kickoffs to hard hits and personality.
He made First-team All-Pro with the Colts in 2014 and was selected to the Pro Bowl in 2014 and 2016.
Since retiring, McAfee has transitioned into media and has been attacking that field with the same game-changing personality. Indianapolis is fortunate to have selected McAfee in the seventh round of the 2009 Draft.
