Colts Draft Mars Hill Offensive Lineman Denzelle Good In Seventh Round

Intro: The Colts completed their eighth pick of the 2015 NFL Draft by taking offensive lineman Denzelle Good from Mars Hill University.




]( –** The pick before Mr. Irrelevant in 2015 was the Colts, and they took one of the largest players in the draft.

Denzelle Good (6-6, 339 pounds) played offensive tackle for Mars Hill University after beginning his collegiate career at North Carolina State in 2008.

The pick of Good extends the Colts streak of taking an offensive lineman in every draft since 2002.

Getting To Know Denzelle Good-Why Good?

The Colts got an up-close look at Good during the Super Regional Combine in Phoenix, back in March. There, Good was listed as a guard, after he played tackle during his career at Mars Hill, a Division II school in North Carolina. An emotional Good had to wait until the second-to-last pick on Saturday to hear his name called by the Colts.-Offensive Line streak

Mock drafts leading up to Thursday, frequently had the Colts taking an offensive tackle in the opening round. The tackle came, but not until pick No. 255 on Saturday. With Good joining the Colts' 2015 draft class, Indianapolis has now taken an offensive lineman in every draft since 2002.-Good's role in Indianapolis?

With the Colts waiting until their final pick of the draft to take an offensive tackle, they clearly feel comfortable with their current depth there. Gosder Cherilus' health is definitely something to watch the rest of the offseason, but the Colts still have other tackle options (Joe Reitz, Jack Mewhort and Ulrick John), if need be. Good could be a project, where he spends a season on practice squad. His athleticisim at 339 pounds was on full display with this dunk following the Colts workout.
