Colts take speedy receiver after trade with Ravens
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) The Indianapolis Colts have selected small, speedy receiver T.Y. Hilton in the third round of the NFL draft.
Hilton caught 72 passes for 1,038 yards and seven touchdowns last season at Florida International. He's listed at 5-foot-9, 183 pounds and also can return punts and kicks.
Indy traded its fourth-round pick and a fifth-rounder in 2013 to Baltimore to get the choice.
Choosing Hilton continued the day's trend of adding pieces to Andrew Luck's new puzzle in Indy. The Colts took tight ends with their first two picks Friday. They selected Luck's teammate, Coby Fleener, at No. 34 overall and Clemson's Dwayne Allen at No. 64l. Hilton was the 92nd pick.
Indy is scheduled to make six more picks Saturday.
