Colts Sign 2011 Second Round Pick, OG Ben Ijalana

The Indianpolis Colts have signed 2011 second-round pick Ben Ijalanaaccording to CBS SportsIjalana was selected with the 49th overall pick in the 2011 NFL Draft.

The Colts liked Ijalana enough to trade up from the 51st spot to grab the massive OG/OT from Villanova, and according to Stampede Blue, GM Chris Polian envisions him as a the future RT for the team.

Jon Dove at Mocking The Draft provided this scouting report in March.

Final word: Ijalana is a good looking prospect with the a ton of upside.  His overall build and athletic ability will intrigue NFL teams because he is basically an un-molded piece of clay.  I have concerns about his weight distribution and technique but most of those issues can be corrected with coaching.  Something, you cannot teach is long arms and Ijalana has the length to effectively lock out defenders.  He will also get some love because of his versatility.  Ijalana has the size and skills to play either tackle or guard in the NFL.
