Drafted in the 9th round of the 1988 draft, not much was expected out of Jeff Herrod. What the Colts and their fans got was nine solid years of middle linebacking excellence. He was a Team Captain for almost his entire time here and lasted through FOUR head coaches (Ron Meyer, Ted Marchibroda, Jim Mora, and Lindy Infante).
He was a bit undersized and was considered a bit slow, but just about every time you looked at the stats at the end of the season you would find him at the top of the tackling statistics. Jeff was a fan favorite and all around good guy.
