Indianapolis Colts pick WR Michael Strachan: How he’s doing
The Indianapolis Colts started the first pick of the seventh round, one they won in a trade with the New Orleans Saints. With this selection, the Colts took on wide receiver Michael Strachan from Charleston.
Strachan has dominated at the Division II level and offers another big raw athlete on offense that will make quarterback Carson Wentz even happier.
Strachan, a towering 6’5 ″ 226 lbs. Target arrives in Indianapolis after being a mismatch nightmare for small school defenses. He ran an impressive 4.46 in the 40-yard run time. In 29 career games played in Charleston (WV), Strachan recorded 127 catches for 2,332 yards and 27 touchdowns.
Strachan is the latest addition to an expanded Colts hall with a focus on big outside receivers lately, joining a few talented sophomores in Michael Pittman Jr. and Dezmon Patmon.
While Strachan likely comes in as some sort of raw project player to this position, his athletic ability and testing suggests he will be a worthy investment to develop into a deeper role with offense later in his career.
If the position changes with too many other options above him, Strachan could benefit the most from spending time on the practice squad and developing his game.
