The Colts wrapped up their draft – barring a trade – by selecting Northwestern linebacker Anthony Walker with 161st overall selection. The selection of Walker means the Colts used six of their eight draft picks on defensive players, which was the goal coming into the weekend. Walker had 7.5 sacks and four interceptions in his career at Northwestern.
The Colts selected their second cornerback of the draft in Nate Hairston from Temple in the fifth round. Hairston joins Florida cornerback Quincy Wilson, who was picked in the second round, as new Colts. Hairston switched to cornerback for his final two years at Temple after starting out as a receiver. He had three interceptions and two tackles for a loss last season.
The Colts used the 144th overall pick on Albany State defensive tackle Grover Stewart. He had 23.5 sacks and 43 tackles for a loss during his career at the Division II school. The Colts believe Stewart can play nose or defensive tackle.
The Colts have made back-to-back offensive selections. They picked University of South Florida running back Marlon Mack with the 143rd pick. The Colts want to start planning ahead for the future because starter Frank Gore turns 34 years old next month. Mack is USF's all-time career rushing leaders with 3,609 yards.
The Colts have finally taken their first offensive player in the draft. They selected USC offensive lineman Zach Banner with the 137th overall pick. The pick the Colts used on Banner was the one they received from New England as part of the trade for tight end Dwayne Allen
