The Colts continued to add depth to their defense in the fourth round of the 2007 NFL Draft, adding Troy State safety Brannon Condren with 131st pick and Pittsburgh outside linebacker Clint Session with the 136th pick.
Condren started at strong safety for the Trojans his junior and senior years. In 2006 he had 98 tackles, two interceptions and two passes defended. Condren stepped up his game against Troy's stiffest competition – he had 13 tackles against both Georgia Tech and Nebraska.
The 6-foot, 204 pound safety ran an impressive 40 yard dash time (4.48) and should contribute immediately on special teams. Condren could likely play either safety position and is a solid tackler with a great work ethic.
Session had a breakout season at Pittsburgh as a senior in 2006, playing the SAM linebacker position and compiling 101 tackles (12 for loss), one sack, one interception (returned for a touchdown), one fumble recovery and five forced fumbles.
The 6-foot, 233 pound linebacker won the Ed Conway Award, given to Pittsburgh's most improved player during spring drills, twice during his career with the Panthers.
Session has a quick first step with aggressive instincts and is a solid tackler with special teams potential.
With the departure of safeties Mike Doss and Dexter Reid and starting outside linebacker Cato June, the Colts filled two needs in the fourth round.
