chelsea's first 2013 mock draft

17 posts in this topic

Ok so this is my first topic ever made, wanna give this a shot and see what you guys think.

First off, I believe the colts will fix the offensive line in free agency, so you will not see that reflected in my draft. Second, for my mocks' purpose I'm going to say the Colts will be picking 22nd in the draft.

ROUND 1 (Pick 22): Sam Montgomery, DE, LSU

- Honestly I'm surprised this guy hasn't started being brought up more, he's sliding a bit (kiper has him down to 16th on his board), the colts would have to be a little bit lucky to see him fall to us, but with the amount of defensive line talent on the board this year I would not be surprised to see him fall to us. He would be perfect to pair with Mathis and continue our transition to the 3-4.

ROUND 3 (Pick 86): Desmond Trufant, CB, Washington

- A solid all around CB with good cover skills, could be a good fit for us as the number 2 CB. Bring him in and pair him up with Vontae and lets see what they can do.

ROUND 4 (Pick 118): Robert Lester, S, Alabama

- Zibikowski is not the answer for us in the secondary, more of just a stop gap. The colts I believe could look for a safety earlier in the draft, but with us having other needs this seems like the right round to grab one. Lester has had solid production the past 3 years and he continues to get better and has had 14 interceptions over those 3 years, so he has a nose for the ball, and we all know how much we would love if the colts could force a few more turnovers on defense.

ROUND 5 (Pick 150): Tyrann Mathieu, CB, LSU

- With the recent news of him entering the draft this year, I started to think about if the Colts should take a shot at him. I'll be the first to say I have no idea where he's going to go in the draft, but if hes around with this pick I think he would be worth a shot. No matter what you think of him, he's a playmaker and I believe could excell as our slot corner. Put him with Vontae and Trufant, and the Colts could turn one of there biggest weaknesses into a strength

Feel free to comment and let me know how I did, try not to be too harsh to me though.

I like it, but I don't think we need to use 2 picks on CBs, and I feel there would be better players at bigger positions of need in the third. Still, wouldn't mind this.

Also, go Gunners! :heh:

Couple of : i know montgomery is a talented player but it seems that the o line is a bigger priority ( maybe chance warmark or barrett jones) also youve put a lot of CBs, maybe instead a NT like jesse williams

I would go either O line or SS in RD1, and then OLB in RD3 then some corner help afterwards.

Not bad but I would go with a OL instead of Matheau

I agree we need OL help (desperatly, I might add), but like i said in my OP I believe the Colts will address that in free agency. Our secondary though is drastically missing a playmaker, and if Mathieu is still there in the 5th I think taking a flyer on a potentially huge playmaker would be great value at that pick. Remember he not only could make plays on defense, he also made plays as a returner.

I like your take on the free-agent approach to our O-line and I like the Montgomery pick alot given who could be at the #22 spot.

But I think Mathieu. right or wrong, will benefit on Draft Day from Janoris Jenkins' very impressive rookie year. Jenkins was every bit the time-bomb Mathieu is coming out of college....but only fell to the 2nd round.

If Mathieu DOES fall to Round 5....then by all means we should grab him and take the shot on his talent. I just don't he will.

I hope we go DB or Safety in RD 1, This draft has a good amount of DT, and 3-4 OLB types, we can get one in the third round.

Good draft. We need secondary and Oline, but as Parcell's says, getting a guy to pressure the qB is a top priority. The Giants have won 2 SB's with that philosphy. We'll never beat Tom Brady if we don't pressure him. The times we did beat him, Freeney was in his prime and was getting to him a lot.

Tyrann Mathieu,is more than likely going to be a Safety in the NFL. I don't think anyone really has a clue where he will go yet, but 5th round sounds about right now. We really don't add much to help Luck either.

    • I know ;) my point was that they did try it and decided against it for the time being. 
    • No worries. I have lots of brain farts myself, gives a whole new meaning to being filled with gas hahaha
    • In terms of calculating ratings, I've always wondered how viewership is tabulated in an era when fans can record games to watch later at their leisure as opposed to the designated time slot on a specific network.    We live in an on demand era now where networks don't get to call the shots anymore meaning consumers can now control when programming is watched & consumed. I think about this a lot. When there was only NBC, ABC, CBS, PBS, & the broadcast day ended at midnight literally vs now with cable, satellite, streaming services, & entertainment options tailored to the specific person etc. etc.    Heck, I even remember when TV programming directors tried to sue VCR companies for copyright infringement just because new technology allowed customers to record & play back programming on the original antenna based networks growing up.    A pet peeve of mine is laptops & cell phones that allow programming on the go at airports, in cars, & on trains because I miss how important TV & radio used to be as a family event & bonding experience, which doesn't exist anymore--the mystique & magic of TV & radio as a communal event. I'm a historian/archivist by profession so I always notice generational changes over time. I grew up with a radio straight out of FDR's "Fireside Chats" too until a tornado demolished it. I miss that radio too. 
    • Beautifully stated CC1. Not that this situation applies to every NFL player of course, but there is something to be said for athletic individuals pampered a significant portion of their lives due to their speed, strength, & agility. I agree.    Yes, I know. There are gritty, humble, undrafted success stories out there too. 
    • According to a Colts.com article, Doyle is wildly popular in the locker room because of his great attitude and how he goes about his business.  Barring injury, he should be a big weapon for us.  Monachino said having Robinson back opens up our defensive playbook.  Bortles is still young, so I'm hoping we can frustrate him with our secondary, while our linebackers stop the run.  We should see Dline get pressure with Anderson back.

    • Welcome here Nils!   I can tell you, most of football fans in Hungary are Patriots fans...unfortunately. 
    • Hi, Nils here....   I know a lot of Europeans support the Patriots, but all I can say is no way man, no way!   I'm not entirely sure when I started to follow and cheer for the Colts, but I has no shame in admitting that it was when Manning begun to really shine. It was probably back in 1999 because I seem to remember that play-off game against the Titans.   I also remember the I loved how the Colts would play a beautiful offensive game whereas other teams were boring with their defensive strengths. Aaaahh, those were the days!   I was introduced to American Football during my American Politics/presidential election study in Washington D.C. in the fall of 1996 (Clinton vs Dole). Didn't really get attached to any team back then, so you can say that Redskins just left me totally uninspired.   It is a great and welcoming forum here - and that is just how I remembered America too.
