Indianapolis added two defensive linemen, two offensive linemen, a strong safety, a running back/kick returner and a tight end. The Colts traded a fourth round pick in 2014 to Cleveland in order to gain an additional draft pick in the fifth round.
Here is a closer look at the team's 2013 draft picks:
Round 1/24 — Bjoern Werner, OLB/DE, 6-3, 266, Florida State
High-motor player who should push for a starting role as a rookie. Good size, athletic skills. Plays faster than his 40 time. Expected to be disruptive at the point of attack. Still raw in some areas but has a great upside. Should fill the Terrell Suggs role in the Colts' hybrid 3-4 defensive package.
Round 3/86 — Hugh Thornton, OG/OT, 6-3, 320, Illinois
Versatile offensive lineman who is expected to play guard. Started most of last season at offensive tackle for the Illini but will get a long look at guard for Indy. Colts targeted Thornton early. Was recruited to Illinois and coached by current Indy offensive line coach Joe Gilbert.
Round 4/121 — Khaled Holmes, C/OG, 6-3, 302, Southern California
Another versatile offensive lineman who can play all three inside positions. Primarily a center but can also be efficient as a guard. Played most of the 2012 season with a high ankle injury. Holmes will get looks at both center and guard during rookie camp and during organized team activity workouts before a decision is made about where he will eventually play. His father, who now works for the Saudi royal family, played at Michigan and older brother was a tight end at Southern Cal. He is the brother-in-law of Pittsburgh Steelers safety Troy Polamalu.
Round 5/139 — Montori Hughes, DT/NT, 6-4, 329, Tennessee-Martin
Colts traded a fourth-round pick in the 2014 draft to Cleveland for the opportunity to select Hughes. Indy did not have a fourth round selection prior to the trade. Hughes has experience in both 3-4 and 4-3 defensive schemes. Can play nose tackle and defensive tackle. Reminds Colts coaches of Ravens NT Haloti Nagta. Began collegiate career at Tennessee before playing his final season at Tennessee-Martin.
