How Twitter reacted to Colts drafting TE Will Mallory
The Indianapolis Colts added some competition to the tight end room during the 2023 NFL draft, adding Miami’s Will Mallory near the end of the fifth round.
Though the tight end room is pretty crowded, Mallory will have the chance to compete for one of the final spots in the room thanks to his speed and pass-catching abilities as a move tight end.
Here’s how Twitter reacted to the pick:
New Colts TE Will Mallory is a DAWG.
4.54 40. Fastest at the position in his class.

Chris Ballard thought this was one of the deepest tight end drafts in years. At 162, Colts go with Miami TE Will Mallory.
His grandfather, Bill Mallory, was the longtime coach at IU (1984-96) who led the Hoosiers to their most recent Bowl win (1991 Copper Bowl).

The Colts are having one of my favorite drafts because they keep selecting elite testers like Will Mallory. Mallory is like a jumbo receiver and can be an F tight end with his smoothness. Does damage after the catch too: pic.twitter.com/GGaTHRwG2i

The Colts drafted Miami TE Will Mallory at No. 162 in the 5th round.
At 6-4 1/2 and 239 pounds, he'll compete as a move tight end at the back of the roster.

Awesome to see the Mallory family represented on the Colts, as they take TE Will Mallory. His grandfather was legendary #iufb coach Bill Mallory, and his uncle is ISU coach Curt Mallory. https://t.co/ZRy6ZxWnwW
