2012 NFL Draft- Indianapolis Colts Draft Pick Selections

Round: 7

Pick: 253 (a.k.a. Mr. Irrelevant)

Player: Chandler Harnish

Position: Quarterback

College: Northern Illinois

SB Nation College Blog: Red And Black Attack

Mocking The Draft Scouting Report:

Strengths: A really good athlete for the position. Harnish can generate positive yards pulling the ball and running on any given play. At his best when he can throw to the short and intermediate area.

Stampede Blue's Initial Take On The Pick:

The Colts conclude the draft with the selection of another quarterback a.k.a Mr. Irrelevant. Chandler Harnish is an athletic, yet under-sized QB that possesses decent potential. He worked mostly out of a simplified offense, but he'll have a chance to develop behind Andrew Luck and Drew Stanton. Many of us were joking that the Colts would select a QB here, but little did we know that it would actually come true. I guess we could use the... depth? Was this really the best player available? I'd say no. What about Chase Minnifield? At least give him a chance to prove that he can be healthy.

Anyway, welcome aboard, Mr. Irrelevant.

Draft needs remaining: Quarterback, Nose Tackle, Cornerback, Wide Receiver, Tight End
