No one knows how good Patterson is, and the Colts must like something about Clark to keep him on the roster for several years.
Again, a backup center is not more important than a starting receiver, tight end or corner.
Well, we picked one at 6 just a couple years ago. I'm actually happy about that pick.
When I watch college football, I generally don't notice the center, but when Michigan played IU this last season, Ruiz really stood out with a number of pulls and clear-outs on sweeps.
I'd be happy with this pick and think it would do a lot for the Colts run game to have two high quality guards and someone who could step in at center when needed.
As for impact players, we jumped ahead of the game and got one in DeForest Buckner, and I think with 44 the Colts will go WR, TE or maybe QB.
