Tough, hard-nosed linebacker who possesses good sideline-to-sideline range. Will get work on special teams to start out.
Second-round draft choice LB Pat Angerer wasn't watching the draft Friday night, so he was a bit surprised when he got the call from team president Bill Polian and head coach Jim Caldwell. "I can't wait (to get to Indianapolis). It's truly going to be an honor playing for (the Colts). I'm going to do everything they ask of me. I can't wait to get started. I'll play wherever they put me," he said. "I wasn't even watching (the draft). My agent said there's probably a 35 percent chance that I'd be drafted (Friday), so I was just sitting around eating some food when I got the call. Man, this is a dream come true. I tried watching (the draft Thursday) and it was pretty boring. I've been playing cards (Friday) and sitting around eating." - by The Sports Xchange

Draft Scout Pat Angerer News
07/26/14 - LB Pat Angerer, 27, a former second-round pick by the Colts in 2010, was signed by the Falcons. Angerer has played in 54 games and made 39 starts. He provides some experience to the linebacking corps, which is being revamped. Angerer has had a promising career stymied by injuries that eventually led to microfracture surgery in December. The procedure, which involves repairing cartilage in the knee, has been performed on several NBA players who successfully continued their careers but is relatively rare among football players. Angerer said doctors told him the odds were against him playing again. "It was about 50-50, but more like 20 percent chance of coming back (with) the way my knee was," Angerer said. "It was pretty beat up. To come back and to even be on the field, that's a pretty big accomplishment."

11/15/13 - ILB Pat Angerer led the Colts with nine total tackles against the Titans (eight solo). But Angerer's biggest play of the night was when he came up with an on-sides kick by Tennessee PK Rob Bironas near the end of the game.
"Our special teams coach told us about that the other day, how (the Titans) do (the on-sides) kick. The way they had the ball initially, kind of parallel to the line, usually he kicks it to the left or straight on," Angerer said.
"I just knew I had to get on the ball before it went 10 (yards) so nobody cleaned me out a little bit."
