With their selection in the sixth round, the Colts go with a former running back who has a strong sense for that aspect of the game, defensively. The undersized linebacker is just 6-foot-1, 226 pounds, but he brings top-notch instincts against the run.

Chambers is a smart player with a high IQ. It's simply his size that gets in the way at times. If he can add some more upper body strength, he's got the potential to become a future starter. Last season with the Buckeyes, Chambers totaled a career-high 83 tackles, including 1.5 for a loss, one pass breakup and one interception.

The irony here is pretty strong. To end the draft, the Colts take their second-straight former running back. Trey Taylor, a safety out of Air Force, is another guy who made a transition to the defensive side of the ball and is good at stopping his former position group.

Taylor functions best when he's closer to the line of scrimmage and gets into the thick of the action. He's another smart player who could come in and be a situational type player, but at the very least, become a regular standout on special teams.
