’05 NFL Draft – Round 3

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

With the 92nd overall pick in the '05 draft, the Indianapolis Colts take Vincent "Sweat Pea" Burns (DE, Kentucky, 6.0, 267, 4.89). From the ESPN NFL Draft Tracker:

Burns reminds us a lot of Anthony Adams, a second round pick of the 49ers in 2003. He is a 'tweener DE/DT that may never be more than a "wave" player as a 3-4 DE or 4-3 DT.

Finally! In the third round, the Colts dip into the d-line pool. Could be the much-needed complement to Dwight Freeney; at the very least, will provide good backup on the line.
