24. Colts – OLB Bjoern Werner

Florida State Junior

Measurables: 6’3″ 266 lbs 33 1/4″ arm length

NFL Combine: 4.81 40-yard 25 bench reps

NFL Comparison: Chris Long

Werner is an odd pick here, as he’ll be required to make the transition to 3-4 outside ‘backer in Indy’s scheme, much like Dwight Freeney last year. And like Freeney, I don’t see this conversion being a success.

He’s a competent pass-rusher and not awful in run-protection, but he’s football smart for his age and exhibits an ability to shed blockers.

There are real questions about Werner being a stand up rusher in the NFL.
