The Indianapolis Colts selected NT Josh Chapman out of Alabama with the 136th overall pick (5th round) of the 2012 NFL Draft. Chapman is a big guy at 6’0″, 316 pounds. Chapman is a run plugger who doesn’t make many plays in the opposing backfield. Chapman tore his ACL on October 1st, but he played through it…earning him some stars for toughness. Chapman played in 12 games (11 starts) at Alabama last year and he had 23 tackles, 3.5 tackles for a loss, 1 sack and 2 batted balls. He played in 55 games (25 starts) in his four years at Alabama and he had 88 tackles, 13.5 tackles for a loss, 2.5 sacks and 2 batted balls. If healthy, Chapman could help the Colts on running downs.
UPDATE: (8/26/2012) – The Colts have placed Josh Chapman on the reserve/PUP list, knocking him out for at least the first six games of the 2012 season as he is still rehabbing his ACL, which he tore last year in college.
