(INDIANAPOLIS) - The Indianapolis Colts and top draft pick Bjoern Werner have agreed in principle on a contract.

The 24th overall selection in April, Werner was a defensive end at Florida State, but will switch to outside linebacker in Indianapolis. He was the ACC's Defensive Player of the Year in 2012, then skipped his senior season to enter the draft.

Werner finished 13th in the nation last season with 13 sacks, while ranking second in the ACC with 18 tackles for loss. He had 42 tackles (30 solo), eight passes defensed, one forced fumble and one fumble recovery.

The Colts opened training camp for rookies on Tuesday and the agreement was announced by the team Wednesday.
