Matt Goncalves, OT, Pitt 79th overall

The Indianapolis Colts continue to invest in surrounding Anthony Richardson with offensive talent to ensure the young star’s success. A key to that success will be keeping him on the field, and Indianapolis hopes Pitt offensive tackle Matt Goncalves will help do just that.

Goncalves doesn’t project as an immediate starter for the Colts, but rather as a valuable depth piece on either side of the line. With proven players Bernhard Raimann and Braden Smith as bookend tackles, Goncalves will have plenty of time to develop behind both tackles.

Experienced, versatile and powerful, Goncalves showed the ability to play both left and right in college, as a starter on both ends of the line. Goncalves is a tone setter with a mean streak and offers good value in one of the most important positions in the sport.
