The Colts have picked OLB Kavell Conner with the 240th overall pick (7th round) of the NFL Draft. Conner has nice size at 6’0″, 247 pounds and he runs a 4.7 40 so he’s a good athlete. But Conner is not a very physical player and that is why he dropped so far in this draft. He played in 14 games (12 starts) at Clemson last season and he had 111 tackles, 8 tackles for a loss, he had 2 sacks and he broke up 1 pass. Conner played in 52 games (27 starts) in his four years in college and he finished up with 313 tackles, 16 tackles for a loss, had 3 sacks, broke up 6 passes and he had 1 interception. Conner will help out immediately on special teams and he could develop into a starting linebacker down the road if everything turns out well for him.
