After just one season, Quenton Nelson has instantly become a legend in Indianapolis.
The Colts All-Pro lineman has already taken up a leadership role alongside Andrew Luck, and is reportedly calling Colts draftees in order to give them a swift initiation into the culture they will soon find themselves a part of, begging for their numbers as soon as the ink dries on the draft card.
Jim Irsay says second-year Pro Bowl guard Quenton Nelson has been asking for the cell phones of each of the players the Colts have drafted, so he can call, welcome them and tell them about "what it means to wear the horseshoe."— Zak Keefer (@zkeefer) April 27, 2019
Once again, Chris Ballard and Indianapolis have been killing the draft, especially on Day 2. The Colts cleaned up with four picks in Rounds 2 and 3, headlined by Temple cornerback Rock Ya-Sin and Ohio State wide receiver Parris Campbell. Nelson, Luck, and the Colts are set to dominate the AFC South.
The Colts might have hit one of the biggest home runs in recent draft history in Nelson. Not only has he established himself as one of the best interior linemen in the league after one season, but he's already a leader and ambassador for the team. If that isn't an A+ pick, I don't know what is.
