How Twitter reacted to the Colts drafting DE Titus Leo
The Indianapolis Colts used a sixth-round pick in the 2023 NFL draft to select edge rusher Titus Leo out of Wagner College.
Though not a prominent prospect, Leo fits the Colts’ mold of upside edge rushers to a tee. He’s fast, lengthy and explosive. Coming from a smaller school and as an older rookie, he will be competing for one of the final spots in the defensive line room.
Here’s how Twitter reacted to the pick:
Titus Leo was drafted with pick 211 of round 6 in the 2023 draft class. He scored a 8.48 #RAS out of a possible 10.00. This ranked 250 out of 1634 DE from 1987 to 2023. https://t.co/6L99Ccybtz pic.twitter.com/llIDYK0kCZ

Colts keep taking athletic prospects with high upside, they go pass rusher Titus Leo this time. Long arms, explosive get off, and a great motor. Had bright moments at the East-West Shrine Bowl: pic.twitter.com/xXiNpnnqLE

At 211, Colts go linebacker: Titus Leo out of Wagner. Also has special teams value.

The Colts drafted Wagner EDGE Titus Leo at No. 211 in the 6th round.
At 6-3 and 243, he'll compete for a depth role at the LEO spot behind Samson Ebukam. A bit of a project rusher with 13 career sacks, but he has long arms to work with, too.

.@Colts fans, Titus Leo is an athletic, upside speed rusher with real athletic traits.
Former @BruceFeldmanCFB's Freaks List member, his first step quickness and speed rush ability showed up on film and during #ShrineBowl week
Still developing, upside edge player for the #Colts https://t.co/WVJREBso48 pic.twitter.com/AETJTywSXQ

#Colts select Wagner EDGE Titus Leo at No. 211.@dpbrugler: “Leo is an NFL-caliber athlete with a red-hot motor, but he needs to develop his skill for a more efficient attack plan. He is a work in progress as a pass rusher with special-teams value.”

Titus Leo becomes just the fourth player ever to be drafted from @WagnerAthletics
A journey that started in Sheepshead Bay in Brooklyn, then to Wagner on Staten Island (with no other DI offers), now to Indianapolis
