Indianapolis Colts Select Anthony Costanzo With 22nd Overall Pick

With the 22nd overall pick in the 2011 NFL Draft, the Indianapolis Colts selected Boston College offensive tackle Anthony Costanzo.

Going into the draft, everyone knew the Colts had to improve their offensive line especially given the amount of hits Peyton Manning took last season. Costanzo, in theory, should help that line. I say in theory because I thought they would have taken the more pro-ready Gabe Carimi. I think Carimi would have also helped their running game. Costanzo is a much better pass blocker than a run blocker which means the Colts offense will still be pass-heavy (duh, I know). He's still a rookie offensive tackle, so it will be interesting to see how he will hold up against Mario Williams and whoever is playing outside linebacker. While I'm not high on Anthony Costanzo, he is still an improvement over Ryan Diem which means Indianapolis just got better. Can he grow fast enough to keep Manning clean? We'll find out.
