The Indianapolis Colts pick center Ryan Kelly in the first round of the 2016 NFL Draft

Blogged under Big Colts News,Bloglockers,Front Page,General Colts Chatter,The Draft Report by joelapinski on Friday 29 April 2016 at 5:30 pm

The Indianapolis Colts picked center Ryan Kelly with the #18 overall pick (1st round) of the 2016 NFL Draft.  Kelly is 6’4″, 298 pounds and he runs a 5.27 40.  Kelly made all the line calls for Alabama last year and he should start right away for the Colts.  He is a good run blocker, as he can hit a moving target at the second level.  He is also a pretty solid pass blocker.  Kelly played in 15 games (all starts) for Alabama last year.  He played in 46 games (35 starts) in his four years with the Crimson Tide.  The Colts probably preferred to draft an offensive tackle, but they were flying off the board early in the draft.  That being said, Kelly was a solid pick for them, as they need to do whatever they can to protect Andrew Luck better.

40-year old QB Matt Hasselbeck has decided to retire from the NFL.  He played in 8 games (all starts) for the Indianapolis Colts last year and he completed 156 of 256 passes (60.9%) for 1,690 yards with 9 TD passes and 5 INTs (84.0 QB Rating).  He also carried the ball 16 times for 15 yards (0.9 ypc) last year.  Hasselbeck was 5-3 (62.5%) as the Colts’ starting QB last year, but boy did he take a beating.  He played in 15 games (8 starts) in his three years with the Colts and he completed 193 of 312 passes (61.9%) for 2,121 yards with 11 TD passes and 6 INTs (85.7 QB Rating).  He also carried the ball 26 times for 2 yards (0.1 ypc) in his time with the Colts.  Hasselbeck finishes up his career with the Colts in 15th place in team history in passing yards (2,121) and he is also tied for 15th in TD passes (11) in Colts’ history with Gary Kerkorian.  Hasselbeck as a solid mentor to Andrew Luck and he also was a solid backup QB for the Colts, so he will be missed.
