Number 15 looks to be a good position for the Colts in 2017 NFL Draft

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – It’s just a number: 15. But with the perceived strengths and flaws of every prospect being over-analyzed and general managers littering the landscape with misinformation as Thursday’s NFL Draft nears, why not consider the number? Fifteen. That’s the assigned first-round slot for the Indianapolis Colts. They hold seven picks overall, but the first one always demands the heaviest scrutiny. How best to invest it? A pass rusher? An inside linebacker? A cornerback? A running back? For a team coming off consecutive 8-8 seasons and in serious reboot…

The Stanford defensive end went from chubby dancer to potential top five pick at the 2017 NFL Draft. Solomon Thomas didn’t have a typical NFL upbringing. Growing up in Australia meant his after-school activities included soccer and Irish step dancing. It wasn’t until he moved to a football-crazed Texas town as an adolescent that he realized his prodigious gift for terrorizing quarterbacks. Somewhere along the way, he grew from a chubby, video game-loving transplant to leader of men on the gridiron. This is his story. Born in Chicago, Thomas spent…

0 0 Seattle Seahawks general manager John Schneider on Monday seemed to summarily dismiss the possibility of the team ultimately trading Richard Sherman.
