MAY 1, 2022


YOUNGSTOWN — Youngstown State tight end Drew Ogletree was drafted in the sixth round by the Indianapolis Colts on Saturday. He was the 192nd overall selection.

Ogletree, a Dayton native, caught 40 pa$$es for 391 yards in two seasons as a Penguin. Last season, he had 28 receptions for 282 yards. At Findlay, where he played from 2016-2019, the 6-foot-6 target hauled in 91 pa$$es for 1,147 yards and 10 touchdowns.

Ogletree is the first Youngstown State player to be drafted since Derek Rivers and Avery Moss were taken in the third and fifth rounds, respectively, in the 2017 draft.

After the draft concluded, fellow former Penguin Grant Dixon, a linebacker, was extended an invitation to the Colts’ rookie mini-camp.

"These two cats that we played against from Youngstown State were as good of pa$$ rushers as I've seen"

Unfortunately, the Colts also drafted a TE in the third round in this drafted. It will be tough for Ogletree to mane the roster. If he does well, he might be able to hook up with another team or the practice squad.Kevin Raider has been on the Steelers practice squad for 3 years ( he was called up to the active roster couple of times late in the season.
