Colts draft QB Alex McGough in round 3

NFL Network draft analyst Adam Schefter said the Indianapolis Colts have drafted quarterback Alex McGaughey, the second-round pick of the NFL Draft.

The 6-foot-4, 210-pound McGaugough will go No. 6 overall in the upcoming NFL Draft, the league’s final round, and will have a chance to start in Indianapolis.

He had two interceptions and a touchdown against the New Orleans Saints in his NFL debut last week.

The Indianapolis Colts selected McGaugherty with the 23rd overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft and had him work out for the team.

The Colts have also added running back Jordan Westerkamp, who spent the 2016 season with the Buffalo Bills, and linebacker Jonathan Newsome, who was a fourth-round selection of the Carolina Panthers.

McGaughey is the sixth player in NFL history to make the NFL’s elite draft class.

The 2016 NFL Draft featured some interesting developments, as the Washington Redskins selected offensive lineman Jake Matthews with the No. 5 overall pick and wide receiver Kenny Golladay, who played for the University of Kansas.

Both players were later cut by the Redskins, and Matthews went on to play in the Pro Bowl.

McClough was selected No. 2 overall by the Tennessee Titans, and was part of a trade for quarterback Carson Wentz that brought quarterback Marcus Mariota to the Titans.

McGuough started all 16 games for Tennessee in 2016, completing 69.6 percent of his passes for 1,945 yards, seven touchdowns and six interceptions.
