A humble suggestion for the 4th round

So far the Colts' draft has been solid if unexciting. Bjoern Werner should become a solid starter and Hugh Thorton is the manbeastliest of the manbeasts. Seriously Hugh Thorton (more like HUGE Thorton amirite???????) is essentially a more athletic Hagrid. So, with OLB and G addressed, what now? We have a 4, 6, and two 7s remaining.

This author humbly requests Jesse Williams, DT/DE/Tattoo Model, Alabama.

Less than a month or so ago he was being mocked to the Colts at #24, and most of us were justifiably against it. However, in the 4th round he offers some extreme value as a run stuffing DE to play behind Redding and a back up NT behind Chapman and Franklin. I think it would be another solid if unexciting choice that gives us more depth (read: insurance) at DE.

The only things I'd prefer are taking Jordan Poyer if he's there or giving up our 6th or 7th if needed to trade up and get Quinton Patton. I know many would prefer Lattimore, but I'm not a big fan of his. We don't know if he will ever be 100% again. If all three of my guys are gone, though, buying a lottery ticket in the fourth wouldn't bother me. I'd just rather take Stepfan Taylor in the 6th for his great blocking and receiving.
