Colts wisely add offensive lineman Ben Ijalana

For once, the Washington Redskins are adding draft picks. The Redskins sent the 49th pick to the Indianapolis Colts for pick 53 and 152 (fifth round).

The Colts used that pick to draft another offensive lineman in Ben Ijalana of Villanova.

This is a shrewd move by the Colts after selecting Anthony Castonzo in the first round. This also shows quarterback Peyton Manning they want to win again right now.

Ijalana projects more as a guard in the pros. He's powerful in his upper body and and loves to finish off blocks violently.
