More Laurence Maroney

Mel Kiper, of "who the hell is Mel Kiper!" fame, says the Colts are taking Minnesota RB Laurence Maroney with the 30th pick this year. Kiper is the third draft guru that's said Maroney will fall to the Colts in the late first round. For this reason, I am sure the Colts will not draft him. Bill Polian never drafts anyone you want him to. He always picks some guy that ends up being a Pro Bowler in two years, while the guy you wanted is usually out of football in two years. I don't think Polian has never picked anyone Mel Kiper has predicted, except maybe Manning.

So, if the Colts draft Maroney, it's a miracle.
