The Indianapolis Colts selected Florida International wide receiver T.Y. Hilton with the 92nd pick in the 2012 NFL Draft.
Fantasy analysis: Three straight picks for the Colts amounted to more weaponry for Andrew Luck, and Hilton's big-play style is just what the Colts need. He is a smallish (5-foot-10, 183 pounds) slot receiver with blazing speed and quicks in the open field.
Hilton comes from a small school and will probably need time to translate to the pros. Still, expect him to see a lot of work in 2012. Indy's defense will probably stink, and Luck may have to sling it a lot. Hilton has interesting long-term value, but he shouldn't be selected in any standard format. Take a flier on him if you play in leagues that roster 20 or more players.
