As if we didn't have enough here is another center and one more buckeye. IT sounds like this guy just had some bad luck his rookie season with a broken wrist/finger.

The Colts drafted three players that played center in college in this year's NFL Draft, but grabbed another off the waiver wire this week.

Hopefully this guy is worth more than a bag of soggy chips.

Don't they just make them guards or something?

Competition is good on the OL.
The way the NFL is set up players can be put on the practice squad and starting by the playoffs. Nothing wrong with having depth on the O-Line

Although it seems absurd that the Colt's have acquired 4 players in the offseason whose most recent position was center, it would be more accurate to list all of them as 'interior lineman'. With the Colt's, versatility is very important and not only do centers have to be heady players, but they have to know what the other guys are doing. The competition for the o-line spots is going to be fierce and should really help our depth if we get in any injury situations like last year.

Ya I think most people know that we drafted linemen not just centers.

I hope a couple of these guys are fast enough to pull so we can run to the outside again. I could never figure out if Addai just had a hard time turning the corner or if our guards just couldn't get out there ahead of him so he could make a move.

Most teams would be screwed if 3 centers were lost to injury, but the Colts will be all set. :cool:
