At the same time he comes from a defensive background in regards to scouting so I could see him valuing defensive players slightly over offensive players aside from OL since he believes in building the trenches.
He's having a live press-conference in 10 minutes at the combine. Those quotes above are from his interview with Dan Dakich.

I agree, it's about time colts take a shot on at least 1 or 2 high priced DEFENSIVE FA's instead of signing average players and hoping they play to or above their recent seasons..have to take a chance at some point. Doing the same things will have the same results!
Basically its Nick Perry or bust in FA, then Tim Williams/Taco Charlton/Takk McKinley or bust in round 1. We need 2 dominant pass rushers. We can sign at least 3 really good players in FA so I think we need to start trying to build the best pass rush in the NFL. Perry, Williams, then a 2nd-3rd rounder (Lawson, Watt, Willis, Anderson, Nwachukwu, Smoot, Hall) Then I'd grab a kid like Jo Jo Mathis in the 6th or so.
