  • The Los Angeles Rams claimed Austin Blythe off waivers from the Colts to up the competition at center, which has been underwhelming in years past.
  • Blythe was a seventh-round pick of the Colts in 2016 after being the third-highest-graded center in the nation in 2015.
  • During the 2014 season, Blythe played the first seven games at center before moving to guard. Before the switch, his pass-blocking efficiency was the fifth-best, and his two QB pressures allowed were tied for second-fewest.
  • The Colts thrust Blythe into the starting guard slot for one game in 2016. He gave up eight QB pressures on 50 pass-blocking snaps.
