’05 NFL Draft – Round 2

Filed in SportsTags: Colts, Draft, Indiana, Indianapolis, NFL

With the 60th overall pick in the '05 draft, the Indianapolis Colts take Kelvin Hayden (CB, Illinois, 5'10, 197, 4.48). From the ESPN NFL Draft Tracker:

Hayden transferred to Illinois in the fall of 2003 and started 10 games at WR (52 receptions for 592 yards and three TD's). He moved to cornerback in the spring of 2004, wound up starting all 11 games and finished with 71 tackles, four INT's and six PBU. Hayden is an intriguing developmental player with adequate size and speed, good natural athletic ability and terrific ball skills. He obviously lacks ideal experience at the DI-A level, not to mention only one year at the cornerback position.

Looks like a developmental pick for what was a thin Indianapolis defensive secondary. Hopefully a solid backup that could develop into a future stud. Still waiting for the d-line picks...
