Evander "Ziggy" Hood, DT, Missouri
|27. Indianapolis Colts|
Reasons for drafting: "The reasons are obvious. Hood offers the best option currently available at defensive tackle, and DT is a major need going into the draft. Hood offers size speed, quickness, and power. Is he someone who will play in a ton of Pro Bowls? Maybe not. Is he someone who can anchor the Colts defense, or provide a stable pass rush from the three tech spot? Yes.
I considered drafting Phil Loadholt or Ebben Britton here, but since so much was used last year to shore up the o-line, I figured the d-line needed some new blood. Thus, Ziggy Hood.
And yes, if Mark Sanchez had been here at #27, I would have drafted him... and so will Bill Polian if that situation happens."
