Indianapolis Colts made the shock decision to draft a receiver in the first round of the 2015 NFL Draft last month.
NFL experts criticised the Colts for making the move, with many explaining that Indianapolis should have decided to invest the draft pick in their defense following their AFC Championship Game embarrassment.
The Patriots dominated the Colts in January, but rather than Tom Brady doing the damage it was LeGarrette Blount and the Pats' running game that broke the backs of Indianapolis.
For the Colts to then use their first pick of the draft to select promising receiver Phillip Dorsett was obviously a surprise, and many experts have subsequently pointed to the fact that Indianapolis may already see Dorsett as T.Y. Hilton's replacement should the star leave in free agency next season.
Hilton is headed into the final year of his rookie contract with the Colts, and while he's aware that Dorsett will provide competition for him he doesn't see the rookie wideout as his replacement.
"There's nothing I can do about that," Hilton said Wednesday, via Zak Keefer of the Indianapolis Star, NFL.com reported. "That's who they picked. That's cool with me."
Luck is happy
While many experts might be surprised with the decision from the Colts to draft Dorsett, star quarterback Andrew Luck believes the decision was actually a brilliant one.
"I know Phillip's going to be a stud," Luck said, via Keefer. "Runs like the wind, tracks the ball in the air, makes big plays. I had a chance to talk to him on the phone, quality, quality guy."
