2011 NFL Draft Results: Colts Trade Up With Redskins, Select Ben Ijalana

The Washington Redskins were on the clock for pick No. 49, but quickly made a trade to the Indianapolis Colts. The Redskins traded 49th pick to the Colts for the 53rd and 152nd pick in this year's draft. And after selecting an offensive lineman in the first round, the Colts did it again in the second, picking Ben Ijalana, an offensive tackle from Villanova.

The Colts are clearly looking to rebuild the offensive line. With Anthony Castonzo in the first round and Ijalana in the second, Indianapolis got much younger on the line, and now have two capable bookends for the future. Whether it helps the run game remains to be seen.
