Those people, led by general manager Ryan Grigson, decided Luck’s Stanford teammate was, in fact, the right guy.
Fleener is the team’s second-round pick, and will be a prime target for Luck just as he was in college.
The Colts have a couple dependable receivers in Reggie Wayne and Austin Collie. Beyond that, they’ve got a reclamation project in Donnie Avery and a tight end who’s more a blocker than a receiver in Brody Eldridge.
Fleener is a giant get and fits perfectly with the idea of surrounding Luck with weapons who will maximize his chances at success.
I wasn’t alone in being surprised he made it out of the first round.
Now I expect the Colts will start to look for defenders as they have major holes at cornerback, defensive tackle and linebacker.
