INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The Indianapolis Colts have selected defensive end Kwity Paye of Michigan with their first-round pick in the NFL draft.

He fills a huge need for the Colts, who have been looking for a young pass rusher since general manager Chris Ballard took the job four years ago.

Ballard has traded first-round picks each of the past three years.
