Budenholzer spent 17 years as an assistant under Spurs coach Gregg Popovich before his hiring in Atlanta in 2013. He won four NBA titles as a member of the Spurs’ staff.
Colts general manager Chris Ballard told reporters, “You win games up front. Y’all are gonna love him.”
The Colts gave up a league-high 56 sacks last season. Asked whether quarterback Andrew Luck would like the pick, Ballard said, “I’m sure he will. I think we see now the importance of the entire offensive line, not just tackles.”
Nelson told reporters: “I would say that I’m a very nasty offensive lineman. I wanna play for the best offensive line in the NFL and protect the best quarterback in the NFL.”
The 49ers also put a premium on protecting quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo.
McGlinchey is expected to take over at right tackle in place of Trent Brown, then possibly transition to left tackle when Joe Staley retires.
The pick came as a surprise to McGlinchey, who did not take a pre-draft visit to the 49ers.
“I had no idea,” McGlinchey said. “It’s definitely a shock but I’m absolutely thrilled to be part of the San Francisco 49ers organization. It has a lot of great history with a lot of great quarterbacks and a lot of great Super Bowls.”
Mike Minor (2-1) allowed four runs on nine hits in six innings to win for the first time in three starts. He walked none and struck out four.
Kevin Jepsen got two outs and Alex Claudio got one, Chris Martin worked the eighth and Keone Kela finished for his fifth save in five opportunities.
Justin Smoak had four hits but was thrown out twice on the bases for the Blue Jays, who have lost six of eight.
Stroman allowed six runs and eight hits in 5 1/3 innings, and has given up at least four earned runs in all five starts this season. His ERA rose from 8.55 to 8.88.
The Rangers jumped on Stroman with a four-run first. Mazara hit a two-run single and Gallo followed with a drive to left, his eighth.
Smoak hit an RBI single in the bottom half, but the inning ended when Smoak was thrown out at the plate trying to score on Kevin Pillar’s two-out double. Smoak was also thrown out in the third when he tried to go from first to third on Yangervis Solarte’s single.
