Castonzo is a Colt

With the 22nd pick in the 2011 NFL Draft, the Indianapolis Colts selected Anthony Castonzo. Castonzo becomes the 18th BC player taken in a firstround of an NFL Draft.

I don't know Castonzo but seeing BC guys celebrate their Draft always makes me smile. Here's this big kid/young man wiping tears and high fiving his friends and family. It's a really special moment.

As for his potential...I think Indy is a perfect fit. He'll play in a zone and pass heavy scheme. You have to pay attention to Manning, but Castonzo has the experience and smarts to keep up.

I am indifferent to the Colts, but will be rooting for AC to succeed!

AC to the Colts!! Nice spot for Castonzo. Quality organization, close to his Illinois home and they need him too.

I think this was perhaps the best fit for AC of all the teams (he should be glad the Lions passed!)

The fact that Bowers did not get picked is very surprising, and that Ponder got picked so high is also surprising.
