INDIANAPOLIS — The Indianapolis Colts on Saturday selected center Javon Patterson with the 246th-overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft.

Patterson — who stands at 6-foot-3 and weighs 307 pounds — played left and right guard his freshman year at Ole Miss, and the next season started mixing in at center. He would log 24 starts over his final two seasons in 2017 and 2018 at left guard.

NFL.com’s Lance Zierlein wrote this about Patterson in his draft profile:

Athletic and fluid in space, but more adequate than "plus" or "minus" in most categories. He has starting experience at all three interior line positions, but will likely be graded as a center by most teams due to his lack of length and power. He needs to meet slants and swim moves with his feet rather than his chest once he gets into the league. Patterson's body control and foot quickness could make him a Day 3 target for teams looking to add interior competition in a move-based rushing attack.

As of now, the Colts have no remaining picks in the 2019 NFL Draft.
