According to coach Chuck Pagano, though, there also was a body of work from training camp and the entire preseason that was considered also. "He put enough out there, his body of work, his resume that he put out there in the preseason. Obviously we felt good enough to draft Chandler based on what we saw coming out of college. I think that what he's done in the preseason, we didn't want to risk (losing him to another team)," coach Chuck Pagano said.
"He's an up-and-coming guy and he's got all the Colts traits that you're looking for and did a tremendous job for us. I think you're spot on in that we didn't want to risk losing Chandler."

The people are still very excited (in Bluffton). It was a very special feeling to be drafted by your hometown, favorite team. The people are still very excited up there.
"I've always loved the Colts and I looked up to guys like Jim Harbaugh and Peyton Manning. To be a part of the team and to put on the helmet is something very special. (I want to) just to pick up as much (of the) offense as I can, and to just show these guys what kind of leader I am on and off the field. Just taking as much as you can home with you from the coaches, from different players and from Andrew (Luck). I think at the end of those three days it will be very worthwhile."
