Chandler Harnish Goes To The Colts

In the first round of the 2012 NFL Draft , the Indianapolis Colts used the first overall pick on Stanford QB Andrew Luck.

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.
