Albany State Lineman Grover Stewart Selected by The Indianapolis Colts
The Indianapolis Colts selected Albany State defensive lineman Grover Stewart with the 144th pick in the fourth round of the NFL Draft.
The 6-foot-5, 334-pound lineman was a four-time All-SIAC standout. Stewart recorded 15 tackles for loss and 7.5 sacks as a senior in 2016.
Touted as having an “NFL-ready frame,” Stewart has been projected to be a run-stuffing interior lineman who can play nose guard or the three-technique position at the next level.
Very active interior defensive lineman, and very productive. Put together a very impressive East West Shrine game against much higher level of competition than he has been used to. Gets in the backfield quickly, but will have a big learning curve. Should be able to be a good rotational player to start his NFL career, and has a high ceiling.
