Did the Colts draft T.Y. Hilton's replacement?-- Thu May 7 8:00 am --
Phillip Dorsett has speed to burn
Competition in the Indianapolis Colts' wide receivers' room thickened last Thursday when the team used its first-round pick on one of its deepest positions. Suffice to say when Phillip Dorsett's name was called, many were surprised. Coming off the best season of his three-year career, T.Y. Hilton is entering the last year of his rookie contract. To be sure, a big payday awaits one of the league's most talented young wideouts.
Whether or not that comes with the Colts remains to be seen.
FF Today's Take:With a logjam at receiver, it's unlikely the rookie Dorsett will make a big impact this season but if the Colts decided to let Hilton walk after 2015, Dorsett's value would be on the rise. "There's nothing I can do about that," Hilton said Wednesday of last week's draft pick. "That's who they picked. That's cool with me."
