Post-Draft Outlook:COULD SURPRISE: DT Terrance Taylor had an up-and-down senior season at Michigan, but has a chance to add size, athleticism and quickness to the interior defensive line. Lost weight last fall to fit into the Wolverines' new defensive alignment but can play up in weight if necessary. Needs to develop more consistency. A closer look at the Colts' picks: Round 4/136 -- Terrance Taylor, DT, 6-0, 314, Michigan...Gives the Colts additional size and bulk in the middle of the defensive line. Has good athletic skill along with his size. Is expected to help in the Indianapolis run defense plus add some additional push up in the middle against the pass. - by The Sports Xchange
