In the fourth round, the Colts add some depth and potential competition at the safety position by selecting Sione Vaki out of Utah. Vaki is more of your physically-imposing safety than he is your quick, coverage type. He's going to make his hay near the line of scrimmage, where he can use his strength (20 reps on the bench at the Combine) and tackling ability.

Vaki has average speed, but he's a smart player who takes good angles. He doesn't miss a lot of tackles and is especially effective on special teams. He's a high-effort player that works his tail off, which is always a welcomed trait in an NFL locker room.

The tight end position is a spot where the Colts still have yet to find a real difference-maker. And, while finding that in the fifth round isn't highly likely, they take their shot on Penn State tight end Theo Johnson.

As far as value goes, Johnson is a phenomenal value in the fifth round and very well could go higher. He stands 6-foot-6 and brings tremendous athleticism to the position. He ran an impressive 4.57 in his 40-yard dash while soaring to a ridiculous 39.5-inch vertical at the Combine. Just those numbers alone are enough to make you stop and double take.
