The Colts have tried to protect quarterback Andrew Luck by giving him receiving targets.
This time, they did it by protecting him.
The Colts used the 18th pick on Alabama center Ryan Kelly, lending some stability to a line that needs help inside and out.
Kelly looks like the kind of player who could start for years to come, and gives Luck the kind of stable center Peyton Manning had for so long in Jeff Saturday.
It’s not necessarily a flashy pick, but it could be the right one.
