The Colts selected their second offensive lineman in the 2014 NFL Draft, when they selected Georgia State’s John Ulrick with their 7th round pick (#232). The team had previously selected OG Jack Mewhort in the second round pick. As for Ulrick, I can honestly say there aren’t a whole lot of scouting profiles on him. That doesn’t mean it’s a bad pick, it simply means he’s an under the radar type player.
At a listed 6’5″, 288 lbs, he’s a big man, and while he played at a smaller school, it doesn’t mean he can’t play football at a high level. While the Colts are set at starting offensive tackle for the foreseeable future with Anthony Castonzo and Gosder Cherilus, Ulrick could be a down the road, developmental type player, while providing immediate depth in the short-term.
“Ulrick (6-foot-5 7/8, 294 pounds) is an athletic lineman with long arms. He ran a hand-timed 5.02-second 40. He’s visited with the Seahawks and Dolphins and could be brought in as a practice-squad player to develop.” –Gil Brandt, NFL.com
