05/13/2014 - 2014 NFL DRAFT BEST VALUE PICK: INDIANAPOLIS COLTS: Round 3/90 -- Donte Moncrief, WR, 6-2, 224, Mississippi...Indianapolis filled a need for a big, strong, physical receiver with speed to get downfield. The former Ole Miss standout should give the Colts much-needed depth at the position. Viewed as a diamond in the rough, Moncrief left college after his junior season. He has a big upside in terms of being a player who will grow with the Colts' offense. - The Sports Xchange
