INDIANAPOLIS — The Indianapolis Colts made yet another move on the final day of the 2018 NFL Draft, sending defensive lineman Henry Anderson to the New York Jets in exchange for their seventh-round (235th-overall) pick.
Anderson was a third-round (93rd-overall) pick out of Stanford in the 2015 NFL Draft, and has played in 29 games over the last three seasons with the Colts, with 19 starts. Last season, Anderson ended the year on Injured Reserve for the second time in his career after suffering a season-ending throat injury Week 9 against the Houston Texans.
With the Colts switching from the 3-4 to the 4-3 defensive front this offseason, Anderson said he had shed 15 to 20 pounds to be able to play both on the edge as a defensive end, as well as inside as a defensive tackle.
In his three seasons in Indy, Anderson collected 55 tackles with three sacks, one forced fumble, one fumble recovery and four passes defensed.
The move for the Colts gives them an 11th total pick in 2018, the most by the team in one year since the NFL Draft went to the seven-round format in 1994. Here are Indianapolis' remaining picks:
• Round 6 / 11th pick in round / 185th overall selection (from Oakland)
• Round 7 / 3rd pick in round / 221st overall selection
• Round 7 / 17th pick in round / 235th overall selection
