So your GM is Bill Polian. Arguably one of the best drafters of all time. That means you're more than likely going to agree with most of the draft picks, right?
Well, not if you're BBS from SB Nation's Stampede Blue. He examines Polian's third round choice in the 2010 draft, CB Kevin Thomas.
Awful pick, and it suggests that Polian's poor decision-making in the third round has returned. Last season, it was thought that Bill might have broken the trend with Jerraud Powers. With Thomas, questions about his durability, toughness, recovery speed, and tackling make him a puzzling selection in Round Three especially with guys like Akwasi Owusu-Ansah still on the board. I will be very happy if or when Bill Polian proves me wrong on this pick. But, right now, it smells of bust.
BBS sure isn't shy. Overall, Stampede Blue gives the 2010 Colts draft class a B.
I think a "B" is pretty fair for this crop. Rounds Two and Three really bring the whole thing down a notch, but the Hughes pick and the selections in Round Seven add some excellent depth and personnel options to all three areas of the team. As always, Colts drafts aren't "sexy."
Here are all the Colts 2010 draft picks:
DE Jerry Hughes
LB Pat Angerer
CB Kevin Thomas
OG Jacques McClendon
TE Brody Eldridge
DE Ricardo Matthews
LB Kavell Conner
CB Ray Fisher
