Indianapolis Colts select Coby Fleener, Grade A

I would have criticized anyone who took Coby Fleener in the 1st round, or even early 2nd, with the exception of the Indianapolis Colts.

Fleener is strictly a pass-catching tight end, and even in that department he’s overrated, but his connection with Andrew Luck gives him added value for the Colts. Fleener will immediately make Luck feel more comfortable. Even if his long-term upside is relatively modest, his ability to help develop Luck makes him an extremely valuable asset in Indy.
