I think perhaps they were dead set on getting a S in the draft, and he was simply the best of what was left. The stats around TE yards vs our D might have been the driver. Kindred is not a guarantee, so perhaps he can dig deep and find a fit within the scheme. Tough road.
My expectations are to at least make the AFC title game and give the Pats and/or Chiefs a real slugfest this year in the playoffs. Hope to win the SB, but I know that'll be hard. Develop our players, and build an elite nucleus around Luck until he retires.
