The Colts continued to add to their defense on Day 3 of the 2023 NFL Draft Saturday, selecting California safety Daniel Scott in the fifth round with the No. 158 overall pick. 

The 6-foot-1, 208 pound Scott totaled 207 tackles, seven tackles for a loss, seven interceptions, seven pass break-ups, three forced fumbles and one sack over five seasons (2018-2022) at Cal. Scott appeared in 49 games (28 starts) and was named a team captain during his time at Cal.
