Draft Reaction: Indianapolis selects TE Coby Fleener
Coby Fleener will play his pro ball in Indianapolis with Andrew Luck. The opportunity cost of selecting Fleener at this point was high: the Colts had to put off starting to build Chuck Pagano’s defense for at least another round.
But consider the upside: Andrew Luck now has Coby Fleener and Reggie Wayne in his starting offense. For all the talk about how Robert Griffin III has the talent advantage in Washington over Luck, now looking at Luck’s weaponry with Fleener, it’s not too shabby either.
The Colts are dealing with a short deck on defense right now, but this was going to be more than just a one year rebuild. Fleener is a strong pick at the 34th overall selection.
