Colts looking to overhaul defense (0:48)

ESPN Stats and Information  

Tarell Basham led the MAC in sacks (10.5) in 2016 and left Ohio University with 28.5 for his career. That should be a welcome addition for a Colts defense that didn't register in the top 20 for sacks last season.

Colts select DE Tarell Basham

The Ohio star is a hybrid edge defender who possesses size, athleticism and explosive traits that should translate well.

Make it 3-for-3 when it comes to defensive players in the draft for the Colts. Indianapolis selected a pass rusher in defensive end Tarell Basham from Ohio University with the 80th overall pick in the draft. Basham had 9.0 sacks and 14.5 tackles for a loss last season. The Colts are desperate for help when it comes to sacks after finishing tied for 19th in the NFL in that category

The Colts, who are still in need of a pass rusher, just saw one of the best remaining ones still available come off the board, as Cincinnati selected Kansas State's Jordon Willis with the ninth pick in the third round. Wouldn't be surprising if the Colts take another cornerback or shift their focus yo the offensive line with their next pick in the third round.

Colts 2nd-round pick, CB Quincy Wilson, has plenty of confidence: "I'm just a shutdown corner, man. I frustrate a lot of receivers when I play them."

Indy is adding some durability to its secondary. Quincy Wilson led Florida in defensive snaps in 2016, and was the only Gator defender to start every game.

With FS Malik Hooker and CB Quincy Wilson, the Colts have drafted two defensive backs that play with great vision and break on the ball. General manager Chris Ballard is putting together a secondary that will create turnovers.

The Colts have addressed their cornerback need, as they've selected Florida's Quincy Wilson with the 46th overall pick in the draft. The Colts have been in need for a second cornerback to go with Vontae Davis after Greg Toler and Patrick Robinson failed to do the job. Lewis had three interceptions and a sack last season at Florida.

Defense, defense and some more defense still remains a need for the Colts. They need pass rushers and a second cornerback. Here's a quick look at who is still on the board for the Colts: DE Jordon Willis, CB Jourdan Lewis, OLB Tyus Bowser and CB Quincy Wilson

Mike Wells ESPN Staff Writer 

Take another cornerback off the board for the Colts. Green Bay selected Washington CB Kevin King with the first pick of the second round. The Colts are in search of second cornerback to go with Vontae Davis.

Former Colts linebacker Robert Mathis, who recorded all 123 of his sacks with Indianapolis, will announced the team's second-round draft pick.

Colts first-round pick Malik Hooker said he got "chills" down his spine when the 317 Indianapolis area code came up on the phone Thursday night. Hooker, the No. 15 pick, didn't think his transition from a basketball player to a football player would happen as fast as it did. It only took him 13 starts at Ohio State to become a first-round pick.

Colts first-round pick Malik Hooker spent his draft day at a children's hospital in Pittsburgh.

Mike Wells ESPN Staff Writer 

Colts coach Chuck Pagano said first-round pick Malik Hooker likely won't be available until training camp because of surgery on a torn labrum in his left hip and sports hernias back in January.

Mike Wells ESPN Staff Writer 

Colts coach Chuck Pagano on first-round pick Malik Hooker: "We never thought he'd be there at 15. We thought he was a top 10 pick... A rare, rare athlete."

Mike Wells ESPN Staff Writer 

The Colts pulled somewhat of a surprise when they selected Ohio State safety Malik Hooker at pick No. 15. The Colts have a need for pass rusher and they decided to bypass the likes of defensive end Charles Harris, linebacker Tak McKinley and Alabama teammates Jonathan Allen and inside linebacker Reuben Foster, bot projected top-10 picks. Hooker had 43 tackles and seven interceptions last season.
