Class Reunion?: Colts could Target Luck’s Stanford Teammate in Round 2

Well it is officially official: with the 1st overall pick in the 2012 draft the Colts have selected Andrew Luck. Tonight, the Colts go back on the clock with a lot of holes to fill around their new franchise QB, and Indy is in the position to provide Luck with at least one familiar face.

TE Coby Fleener and OT Jonathan Martin are still available, and following the departure of long time Colts, Dallas Clark and Ryan Diem both positions are major holes that Indianapolis needs to address. The Colts already have a young OT in Anthony Costanza who they’ve started on the left side (where Martin played at Stanford) but they shouldn’t have much trouble swinging either guy to the right side, and Luck might rest a little easier knowing that his blind side is covered. But considering the Colts lack of offensive weapons it’s hard to resist a 6’6 TE who runs a 4.5 and already has a connection with your QB.

I like Fleener over Martin, largely due to a seemingly lack luster Market for OL so far, and a pretty good talent pool, Indy could try it’s luck at the top of round 3. Of course I’m about to contradict myself entirely because there’s a guy I like above both players, and that’s Wisconsin Center Peter Konz. Jeff Saturday left a gapping hole in the center of that line when he signed with Green Bay and Konz could fill that spot for many years to come.
