With the 49th pick in the 2019 NFL draft, the Colts select Ben Banogu, EDGE, TCU. They actually traded down! Excellent job by Ballard, stealing 144 and only dropping three spots. He’s got considerable athletic upside, winning with power and testing exceptionally well. His strength, length and pass rushing moves should make him a solid contributor off of the edge. I can never complain about building the trenches.
Instant grade: B
