*COLTS PRESIDENT BILL POLIAN AND HEAD COACH TONY DUNGY ON DAY TWO OF THE DRAFT *
PRESIDENT BILL POLIAN (General Comments) April 29, 2007
"With our first pick in the 4th round, we took Brannon Condren, a safety from Troy State. He's a box safety, a guy who's good at playing near the line of scrimmage and is a good hitter. He can run and is a sub 4.5 guy. He's a guy we think has a real good opportunity to make the team both as a special teams guy and perhaps as the 4th safety. With the second pick of the fourth round we took Clint Session from Pittsburgh. He's a sub 4.6 guy and that's very good speed for a linebacker. He's 6'0 235 and is very productive. He's very tough. He's a guy we had our eyes on right from the very start. He should excel both on special teams and has a real chance to be a productive linebacker. He's very much in the mold of Freddy Keiaho. The first pick of the fifth round was Roy Hall, a wide receiver from Ohio State. He's 6'3 240. He was the fourth receiver at Ohio State. He's a 4.4 guy. At that speed they (Ohio State) thought about switching him to tight end to get him on the field, but they never quite made that move, so he ended up being the fourth receiver. He's a player that we think has a lot of upside. We compared him to a faster version of Aaron Moorehead when Aaron first came here. The second pick in the fifth is Michael Coe, a corner from Alabama State. He was in both the East West and Senior Bowl. He's a good cover guy. He's very aggressive and a good tackler. He's similar to Daymeion Hughes, who we picked earlier in the draft. The last choice is Keyunta Dawson. He's a defensive end from Texas Tech. He's 6'2, 254 and is a 4.7 guy. He's a very good pass rusher. That's his forte. He's a guy that should fit right in with the group we have. We'll see if he has any tackle ability. That's something we'll take a look at as we go through the process of mini-camp and beyond."
HEAD COACH TONY DUNGY (On getting more defensive guys the second day) April 29, 2007
"It really just worked out that way. We had some guys that we liked defensively. There were some guys who could run and hit and do some things. It really just fell that way. We talked about some offensive guys on the second day. We turned out pretty well. We ended out getting the guys we really wanted and that were best for the team."
HEAD COACH TONY DUNGY (On getting guys from Ohio State) April 29, 2007
"One thing I like about their program, those guys they practice hard and have a great program. They played in a lot of big games. It just some happens we have a bunch of them this year. We're happy to have them."
