The Indianapolis Colts exercised their first two picks to select Andrew Luck (no surprise) and his college teammate, tight end Coby Fleener. Both were excellent choices, but many were surprised when they selected another tight end, Dwayne Allen in the third round. But, he’s a talented athlete and it’s a great value pick for Indy in the third round.
Rutgers wide receiver Mohamed Sanu was long thought to be a late first round, early second round type pick in this year’s draft, so the Bengals ability to grab him in the third round is tremendous for the organization. Sanu gives Andy Dalton another big receiver, along with A.J. Green to throw to into the future.
At the Senior Bowl earlier this year, no player was more impressive than Jamell Fleming from Oklahoma. He’s physical, fast and now the Arizona Cardinals have another solid cornerback to play alongside Patrick Peterson, the team’s pick in the first round of 2011.
