Colts sign third round pick Le'Raven Clark

NCAA Football: Baylor at Texas Tech Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

The Indianapolis Colts signed offensive tackle Le'Raven Clark, wrapping up their entire 2016 draft class.

Clark was drafted by the Colts in the third round of the draft out of Texas Tech, where he started 51 games in his career. He was a three-time All-Big 12 first-team selection (2013-15) and was a team captain in his senior season. He spent most of his time at left tackle.

He isn't expected to start right away with the Colts, instead being seen as more of a project player as he adjusts to the NFL level. With that said, however, he's a talented player who presented good value in the third round, so he's a guy that the Colts can definitely work with. Perhaps the biggest theme from the draft was giving offensive line coach Joe Philbin as much talent to work with as possible, and that's certainly what they did in selecting Le'Raven Clark.

With this signing, the Colts now have their entire 2016 draft class under contract less than a month after the draft concluded. Second round pick T.J. Green signed earlier this week, leaving Clark as the lone outlier. As expected, it didn't take long for the Colts to get him locked up either thanks to the rookie wage scale, so the Colts don't have to worry about any more rookie contracts. Now, their focus shifts to a massive extension for Andrew Luck looming on the horizon.
