INDIANAPOLIS — The Indianapolis Colts on Saturday selected tackle Jackson Barton with the 240th-overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft.

Barton — who stands at 6-foot-7 and weighs 310 pounds — in 2018 was a first-team All-Pac-12 selection at Utah, where he started all 14 games at left tackle and led the offensive line with 779 snaps, and was credited with a team-best nine cut blocks. In all, Barton played in 53 games at Utah.

NFL.com's Lance Zierlein wrote this about Barton in his draft profile:

Barton could see a conversion to right tackle in the pros, but his poor pad level coupled with his height is a combination that will be difficult to survive no matter where he plays. He's tough and has adequate strength to battle for position as a run blocker, but NFL opponents are sure to take advantage of his lack of leverage and his issues against inside moves and rush counters. Finding a spot on the 53 man roster might be difficult but he could find additional work on a practice squad.

As of now, the Colts' final pick Saturday is their seventh-round (246th-overall) selection.
