2012 NFL Mock Draft Says Robert Lester Could End the Indianapolis Colts Safety Woes
The Colts left no room for error on the offensive line this year.
At No. 22 they got a gift in the form of Anthony Castonzo, then moved up a bit in the second to land big-time small school prospect Ben Ijalana.
There is no doubt the Colts knew they needed help up front to bolster their running game, and they even added a short-yardage, downhill runner in Delone Carter to help there as well.
Indianapolis had a great draft all the way around and will likely focus on the skill positions next year.
Wide receiver could definitely be an option, but with the opportunity to add a new Bob Sanders-like safety, the Colts will have a tough decision to make.
Robert Lester is a ball hawk in the Alabama defense. He’s got good size at 6’2″, 215-pounds, plays the ball extremely well and has the speed to make a difference.
Alongside Dre Kirkpatrick and All-American Mark Barron, the Tide will have one of the best secondaries in the entire country.
Lester is still developing as he is only a junior, but look for him to be all over the field in 2011.
The Colts can use him immediately in a role that they need filled.
