Colts take Bjoern Werner 24th overall


The Colts needed a little bit of everything other than quarterback, and added some help for their pass rush with the 24th pick, taking Florida State defensive end Bjoern Warner.

The former German exchange student played with his hand on the ground in college, but will rush in the 3-4 now. He had 13 sacks last year, leading him to leave school a year early.

He’s still developing as a player, but walks into an defense that needs a lot of help, and fits with the try-hard mentality the Colts have developed in a short time.
