Enemy Intel: Keeping an eye on AFC South in 2018 NFL Draft

Let's take a look at what the other teams in the division are doing in the 2018 NFL Draft.

The Colts have selected Notre Dame guard with the sixth overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft. An intimidating, pancake-blocking presence who allowed just one QB hit last season, Nelson was compared to Hall of Famer Larry Allen by NFL.com offensive line guru Lance Zierlein. They combined for more than 20 rushing touchdowns, behind lineman like Nelson and offensive tackle Mike McGlinchey. Prior to getting injured late in the season, Nelson helped open wide holes for standout running back Josh Adams. McGlinchey joins fellow lineman Quenton Nelson as first-round picks from Notre Dame. "McGlinchey should become an early starter at either tackle position, but his ability to handle bull rushers and power at the point of attack will define the type of career he has". He's got a motor that is non-stop and keeps him going in both the run and pass game. Big win for the Colts and Notre Dame football with this top selection in the first round.
