Wasting a first-round pick on Trent Richardson is hard to be worse than.
But the Colts might have topped themselves with the Bjoern Werner pick, and cut bait on him today.
The team announced they waved the outside linebacker, who had 6.5 sacks in 38 games.
They didn’t mention his pedigree, as he was their first-round pick in the 2013 NFL Draft, picked 24th overall.
Like many highly picked Florida State pass-rushers, he underwhelmed at the NFL level, and they didn’t want to give the experiment more time to bear fruit. Even after keeping Trent Cole with a pay cut, it was hard to justify Werner’s presence.
Now, the guy who picked him has to replace him.
