INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- The Indianapolis Colts have signed receiver T.Y. Hilton, one of their two third-round draft picks.

He was selected No. 92 overall in April.

Indy has now signed seven of its 10 draft picks. The Colts' top three picks -- quarterback Andrew Luck and tight ends Coby Fleener and Dwayne Allen -- are still unsigned.

The Colts are hoping Hilton, Fleener, Allen and Luck will form a young group that will grow up together in Indy's new offense.

Hilton is 5-foot-9, 183 pounds, but was clocked in the 40-yard dash at 4.36 seconds. At Florida International, he caught 229 passes for 3,531 yards and 14 TDs. He also excelled on kickoff and punt returns and is the highest-drafted player in school history.
