In the seventh round, the Indianapolis Colts used the 253rd and final overall pick of the draft on Northern Illinois QB Chandler Harnish.
The 2010 First Team All-MAC QB is going to be competing with Drew Stanton for the role of back-up quarterback to Luck.
Harnish is one of just 10 quarterbacks in NCAA Division I FBS history with a 200-200 game (Saturday, October 15th, 2011 vs. Western Michigan: 14 carries, 229 yards rushing; 14/27, 203 yards on 14 of 27).
Harnish compares to Jets QB Tim Tebow and Vikings QB Christian Ponder, and probably has a better shot than most players who’ve earned the Mr. Irrelevant distinction (final pick in the draft) to have a long career in the NFL.
