Colts take Moncrief in 3rd round of NFL draft

INDIANAPOLIS – The Colts may have filled another need Friday by selecting Mississippi receiver Donte Moncrief in the third round of the draft.

Indianapolis took two players in about two hours after sitting out the first day because general manager Ryan Grigson had traded Indy’s first-round pick to Cleveland in September for running back Trent Richardson.

First, they took versatile Ohio State offensive lineman Jack Mewhort in the second round, No. 59 overall, to help protect Andrew Luck. Then they selected the 6-foot-1 Moncrief from Ole Miss in the third round at No. 90 overall.

Grigson will make three more picks Saturday, the third and final day of the draft.
