Former Ole Miss wide receiver Donte Moncrief was selected by the Indianapolis Colts with the 90th overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft. He was the 14th wide receiver selected in the draft. Here's his NFL.com draft profile.

"I am so excited to see our rich tradition of NFL Rebels continue with Donte," head coach Hugh Freeze said. "With this hard work and dedication, I expect him to join fellow Ole Miss greats Mike Wallace and Dexter McCluster as successful receivers at the next level. I appreciate the commitment and leadership Donte provided our program in helping lead us to back-to-back bowl wins, and I can't wait to watch him excel for the Colts." 

Here's what ESPN's Mel Kiper and Todd McShay had to say after the pick was announced:

"Donte Moncrief has first-round ability, first-round talent," Kiper said. "He looks great physically. He didn't take over games. He didn't play to his measurables. He has the speed and explosiveness. He has to go out and maximize that ability. He has too much talent for a corner to neutralize him on ability. He had games where he flashed first-round ability. With those measurables, Donte Moncrief will go out and take over games on a regular basis."

"For all those guys who look at the analytics versus the tape, there's a place for both," McShay said. "The analytics are highly helpful when you're talking about overall ability. You can't take the number over what you see on the tape, but some people put more stock into Moncrief than others. This is about where he belongs. You look at his numbers. They're outrageous. Across the board, he was among the elite, if not the top performer, in everything he did at the combine. There's a lot of talent to work with."
