Colts draft for talent and need

(Continued)

INDIANAPOLIS —

Round 6/192 — John Boyett, SS, 5-9, 204, Oregon

Played in just one game during the 2012 season after suffering tears in the patellar tendons in both knees. Led team in tackles in 2010 and 2011, recording 108 tackles with 67 solos as a junior in 2011. Played through most of his junior season with his patellar tendon issues. Pagano and Grigson both referred to Boyett as a "buzzsaw" for his playing style.

Round 7/230 — Kerwynn Williams, RB/KR, 5-7, 196, Utah State

Speedy offensive back who may end up returning punts and kickoffs for the Colts. Was an all-purpose back in college. Excels at running between the tackles. Shows good burst at the line of scrimmage. Was considered the best kickoff and punt returner remaining on the Colts’ draft board. Position coach at Utah State was current Indiana State head coach Mike Sanford.

Round 7/254 — Justice Cunningham, TE, 6-3, 258, South Carolina

Mr. Irrelevant for 2013. Was the final player selected in the draft. Gives the Colts additional depth at the tight end position. He is the third tight end drafted by Indy over the last two seasons. A strong blocker and receiver, Cunningham should fit in well in Indy’s new offensive system. Aggressive as a receiver. Has ability to go up and get the football in a crowd.

Draft notes — Indianapolis has reportedly signed a few undrafted free agents, although the complete list has not been officially announced by the team. Sam Houston State cornerback Daxton Swanson, Temple placekicker Brandon McManus, Baylor wide receiver Lanear Simpson, Boston College offensive lineman Emmett Cleary, and Montana fullback Dan Moore are three names that have leaked out.

Six Notre Dame players were selected overall: tight end Tyler Eifert (first round, Cincinnati), linebacker Manti Te’o (second round, San Diego), safety Jamoris Slaughter (sixth round, Cleveland), running back Theo Riddick (sixth round, Detroit), defensive end Kapron Lewis-Moore (sixth round, Baltimore), and safety Zeke Motta (seventh round, Atlanta).

Purdue defensive tackle Kawann Short was selected in the second round by Carolina. Boilermaker cornerback J.J. Johnson inked an undrafted free agent deal with San Diego. Running back Akeem Shavers agreed to a free agent contract with Tampa Bay.

Also, Brownsburg’s Chris Jones, a defensive tackle from Bowling Green, went to Houston in the sixth round.
