Colts take Ben Ijalana - T in 2nd round - Mike Pollak sells home in Indy

The Colts made a minor splash moving up four picks in the 2nd round via a trade with Washington to pick Ben (Bob Lamey's going to hate calling his name) Ijalana.

This is a difficult player for me to evaluate as all of the film and reports on him are as a left tackle - but it is expected that the Colts will move him inside to guard.

On all accounts he is a good athlete with some qualities that we currently lack - namely power and explosiveness.  The major knocks on him is his lack of height - but at 6'3" he is fine for playing guard.

I really like this pick and I can't wait until preseason so I can see him in his pro position of guard.
