Colts finally add another defensive player

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- The Indianapolis Colts have made another move to shore up the defense, taking Vanderbilt defensive end Tim Fugger with their second pick in the seventh round of the NFL draft on Saturday.

Fugger is listed at 6-foot-4 and 250 pounds and is just the second defensive player the Colts have chosen in their first nine picks.

New coach Chuck Pagano and new defensive coordinator Greg Manusky wanted to get bigger and deeper through the draft, but team owner Jim Irsay says the team lost out at least twice on defenders they hoped to take.

Indy started the day by taking 316-pound defensive tackle Josh Chapman at No. 136 overall.
