Addai a good fit for Colts

Former LSU star Joseph Addai will find himself in a good situation with the Indianapolis Colts, who selected him 30th overall in the draft.

Addai will try to fill the shoes of departed All-Pro running back Edgerrin James, who went to the Arizona Cardinals via free agency. Addai showed his toughness by still producing for the Tigers despite serious ankle injuries. Then in the NFL Scouting Combine he wowed everyone by running a sub-4.4 40.

He can block and is a very capable receiver -- much like James -- and has the potential to start this season for a good offensive team.
