NFL ruins Colts’ promising draft pick with terrible stunt
The Indianapolis Colts made a terrific selection in the third round drafting Jelani Woods, but the announcement of the pick was mind-boggling.
Going into the NFL Draft, it was clear the Indianapolis Colts needed a tight end. With just Mo Alie-Cox and Kylen Granson on the roster, Indy had gotten familiar with multiple tight end prospects.
On Friday night, in the third round, Indianapolis was lucky enough to select one of the most talented tight ends in the Draft. With the 73rd-overall pick, the Colts selected Jelani Woods.
While the pick was great, it was immediately overshadowed by the announcement. As the rounds go on, the people chosen to announce the picks get more interesting and you never know what to expect.
For the Colts, their presenters were the TikTok comedy duo from Northeast Indiana known as the Cheeky Boyos. As they approached the podium to announce the pick, the duo did a stunt (maybe?) that left a lot of people confused.
Colts’ pick of Jelani Woods is one to remember
Hopefully, everyone is ok but that was an awkward experience. Especially since they were announcing a pick that likely got a lot of Indianapolis fans excited.
Jelani Woods is a tight end from the University of Virginia, and throughout the pre-draft process, he made a lot of fans, scouts, and analysts excited with his athleticism.
Woods is 6-foot-7, 259 pounds, and runs a 4.61 40-yard dash. After transferring to Virginia for his senior season, he used this athleticism to catch 44 passes for 598 yards and eight touchdowns.
As he transitions to the next level for the Colts, Woods has the potential to become a big-time threat. Between the young players already on the roster and the new rookies coming in, there will be a lot of players competing to emerge as weapons in this offense.
Hopefully, Woods can fulfill his athletic promise and become a problem for defenses in the NFL. At that point, everyone will be able to look back on his announcement at laugh at the bizarre moment.
