Indianapolis Colts' 2017 draft picks:Round 4, No. 144 overall: Grover Stewart, DT, Albany State

INDIANAPOLIS, Indiana -- My take: Depth and competition has been the theme that GM Chris Ballard has consistently talked about. The addition of defensive lineman Grover Stewart does that on a defensive line that already features the likes of Al Woods, Johnathan Hankins, David Parry, Henry Anderson and Kendall Langford. The Colts want to be able to wear teams down by the fourth quarter by consistently rotating fresh bodies into the game.

How he fits: Grover finished his career at Albany State, a Division II school, with 23.5 sacks and 43 tackles while being named to the All-SIAC team all four years. The Colts believe Grover has the tools to play defensive and nose tackle on a defensive line that finished 25th in the NFL against the run last season.
