Coby Fleener will be reunited in Indianapolis with his college quarterback, as the Colts selected him with the 34th pick in the draft. With the move, Indianapolis hopes to recreate the Manning to Dallas Clark connection anew.
Fleener donated his locks to cancer patients and showed up to the draft clean cut, but the blonde next to him makes up for it. We’ve got our relationship correspondent on the case.
Also, early in the second round, the Rams selected CB Janoris Jenkins with their second pick of the round, after taking receiver Brian Quick to open the round.
Baltimore got a piece for their defense in Courtney Upshaw of Alabama. Denver selected a defensive tackle from Cincinnati, Derek Wolfe, to fill that need. Cleveland selected an offensive tackle in Mitchell Schwartz, Andre Branch went to the Jaguars.
After the Jenkins pick, the Panthers, Bills and Dolphins went back to back with linemen that could have gone at the end of the first round in Amini Silatolu, Cordy Glenn, and Jonathan Martin.
