With Antoine Bethea gone, the Colts are going to have to find some help at safety. They probably won't find a starter in the defensive backfield on the third day of the draft, but they can find a suitable backup in the event that LaRon Landry gets hurt.
Alabama's Vinnie Sunseri had a very successful career with the Crimson Tide, but his college career was cut short after tearing his ACL back in October. Before the injury, Sunseri had two interceptions for touchdowns in the 2013 season, coming off of passes from Logan Thomas and Johnny Manziel.
Sunseri doesn't have the ideal size at strong safety at just 5'11'' and 210 pounds, but his instincts and football IQ make up for it. He's not afraid to play inside the box to lay down a hit, but he's also a strong player in pass coverage thanks to his ability to recognize routes.
Unfortunately, Sunseri isn't the best athlete at safety, and there will be plenty of questions about his health as he recovers from a torn ACL. Still, if healthy, Sunseri could be a player instantly ready to make plays on special teams while backing up Landry at safety.
