INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The Colts decided to get younger in their secondary by selecting safety T.J. Green with the No. 57 overall pick in the second round of the NFL draft Friday night.
The 6-foot-2, 210-pound Clemson defensive back was a former wide receiver who switched to the defensive side of the ball. Green surprised scouts at the NFL combine with a 4.34 second 40-yard dash. Veteran safety Mike Adams is entering the final year of his contract with Indianapolis.
Green recorded 95 tackles and one interception in 2015. Green started all 15 games in 2015 and 10 games in 2014 for the Tigers.
The Colts selected offensive tackle Le’Raven Clark from Texas Tech with their third round pick.
On Thursday night, the Colts took the first step in fulfilling their needs on the offensive line when they took Alabama center Ryan Kelly.
The Colts traded their second round pick, 48th overall, to the Packers for their second round pick and nabbed a fourth and seventh round pick from Green Bay in the deal.
