(Image Courtesy of AJC)– No stranger to Blue! The Colts selected Georgia State’s John Ulrick in the 7th round. Said to be “athletic with long arms”, Ulrick figures to be a developmental, depth player along the offensive line to start his young career with the team.

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
