For the second pick in a row, the Colts go with defensive line help. This time, it's Alabama's Justin Eboigbe, a versatile lineman who is a tad lighter but that allows him to be able to play either inside or outside. He's going to have to add some more functional weight in order to hold his own on the inside, but Eboigbe is a high-effort player and someone you want on your team. At the very least, he's going to provide a rotational type of player to this defense that can be moved around depending on situation.

Fans may not like waiting until the fifth round to address cornerback depth, but that's just how this fell. Auburn's Nehemiah Pritchett comes to Indy to compete at the position and, at the very least, provides some developmental talent.

Pritchett brings good size, standing six feet tall, along with ideal speed, having run a 4.36 at the Combine. His length is above average, too, giving him a lot of the raw, physical tools he needs to succeed in the NFL. If he can work on getting a bit cleaner in his transitions and with his footwork, changing direction, Pritchett could morph into a future starter.
