The Hoosiers didn?t have any selections in 2012 or 2013. And they also went pick-less in 2007 and 2009. The last time Indiana had a first-round pick? You have to go back to 1994, when wideout Thomas Lewis went No. 24 overall to the Giants.

Perhaps Indiana can break that drought this year with running back Tevin Coleman possibly sneaking into the top round.
