One of the biggest byproducts of any draft is that it creates competition on a roster. Following the surprising move by the Colts to select TE Dwayne Allen in the third round after plucking QB Andrew Luck’s No. 1 college target, Coby Fleener, with the 34th overall pick, TE Brody Eldridge is a prime example of a guy whose job security is suddenly a lot more tenuous. Although new GM Ryan Grigson said Eldridge still could be in the Colts’ plans, his proclamation moments earlier that, “a week ago (we were) looking under every crack for a tight end, it is nice to have two legit NFL tight ends on our roster now” doesn’t exactly inspire a lot of confidence in Eldridge’s future prospects. Of course, new coordinator Bruce Arians can never have too many players at the position, so Eldridge still has a chance to make a good impression, which would begin by consistently staying on the field and out of the trainer’s room.
