The Colts used their first selection of Day 3 of the NFL Draft (127th overall) to pick SMU tight end Kylen Granson. 

The 6-foot-2, 241 pound Granson caught 129 passes for 1,879 yards with 16 touchdowns in four seasons spent at Rice (2016-2017) and SMU (2019-2020). Granson was a First-Team All-AAC selection in 2020. 

Granson ran a 4.63 40-yard dash at SMU's pro day earlier this year. He played a hybrid tight end role at SMU, lining up inline, in the backfield, in the slot and outside. 

Wrote The Athletic's Dane Brugler: "No matter the school or alignment, he has produced."

With the Granson pick, the Colts now have the following selections left in the 2021 NFL Draft:

  • Round 5, 165th overall
  • Round 6, 206th overall
  • Round 7, 248th overall
