2011 NFL Draft Grades: Oakland Raiders Draft Villanova OL Ben Ijalana
Pick: With the 49th pick in the 2011 NFL Draft, the Indianapolis Colts select Villanova offensive lineman Ben Ijalana.
Analysis: Bill Polian rarely drafts players from smaller named schools so he must really like this player and what's not to like. His feet and technique are great which makes him a great fit for their blocking scheme. Instead of drafting a quarterback for the future I guess they're going to try their best to lengthen his career by protecting him with the best offensive line possible. Good strategy, in my opinion, because nobody replaces Manning.
Draft Grade: B+
