Instant Analysis: Donte Moncrief

While I was a little upset at the Colts for reaching in Round 2, I was ecstatic that the team took Donte Moncrief in Round 3. He’s was a one of my favorite receivers and I had only a handful of receivers ahead of him.

Moncrief is a bigger wide receiver than Colts fans are used to. He’s a physical freak and is an explosive athlete. He ran a 4.4 forty with a 40″ vertical leap at 6’2″ and 220 pounds. He’s also a willing blocker who can seal guys off in the running game. He has the potential to develop into a number one receiver. He does need to work on his route running and competitiveness when the ball is in the air. However, this could truly be another great wide receiver pick for Ryan Grigson in the third round. I wouldn’t have been upset had Grigson chosen Moncrief in Round 2 but to get him in Round 3 was an absolute steal.
