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.

    • Right now, maybe half of the top 15 (or so) interior defensive lineman are 6'1 or less and about 300 lbs or less and arm lenght of around 32 inches (Donald, Atkins, Casey, Daniels, Jarrett/Kyle Williams). Only Donald was a day one 1 pick or drafted in the first two rounds. Casey went in the 3rd round. No one else was picked in the top 100. I don't think there is an other position were so many top players share similar trait and most of them were picked late in the draft.   Are teams that afraid of having a small team that they automatically give worse grade for smaller defensive lineman? If Aaron Donald, for example, had Geno Atkins besides him instead of Michael Brockers, would that line be as effective as one would expect just from the player talent level upgrade from Brockers to Atkins or even worse? I mean, Brockers is a good player but Atkins is on another level. And individually these players are great but would they work as well together on the same line? Not sure if it's as much about the size itself as these players can use it to their advantage in quickness and leverage but maybe two dlineman with short arms would create some issues?   Just wondering why so many of them have fallen late in the draft. I understand that some teams want bigger, physical players (like BB, Parcells etc) but what about those teams that had already gotten steals later in the draft with small interior lineman would jump at the chance to select a player who had great tape and showed similar traits as their best defensive player. Like Grady Jarrett in 2015. Both the Bengals and Titans drafted a dlinemen in the 4th, Jarrett went with first pick in the 5th round Bengals pick was actually two picks before Jarrett was taken.   Though the Bengals did take Billings last year and he might be next to Atkins but he was another 4th round pick. And Titans did draft Mike Martin to be their nose tackle a year after taking Casey but he didn't pan out. And I maybe haven't looked at closely enough at bust/success rate for smaller defensive lineman so these guys could be sort of outliers and teams just missed on these guys for other reasons.    
    • Also for retrospect on this list: Dan Marino--Mark Clayton & Jim Kelly--Andre Reed were snubbed.  Can you think of others that should be on here in place of someone else?
    • http://newarena.com/nfl/ranked-the-top-24-qb-wr-duos-of-all-time/7/?amxt=fbdesktop2   11. Peyton Manning/Reggie Wayne: Indianapolis Colts   In the post Marvin Harrison era, Wayne took the torch as being Manning’s go-to target. During his 14-year career with the Colts, Wayne had eight seasons with at least 1,000 yards receiving. He also managed to haul in 82 touchdowns during this time period. Manning’s resume has been chronicled ad nauseam. He is the all-time leader in passing yards (71,940), and is consistently mentioned as one of the best to ever throw a football in the history of the sport.   2. Peyton Manning/Marvin Harrison: Indianapolis Colts   The respective skill-sets of Manning and Harrison worked perfectly with one another. Manning’s unbelievable timing on throws was predicated greatly by Harrison’s ability to separate in coverage. One of the best technical receivers in league history, Harrison’s route-running capabilities led him to become an 8-time Pro Bowler and a 3-time First-team All-Pro. He also led the league in receiving yards twice with Manning under center. 114 of Manning’s 539 touchdowns throws went to Harrison. This statistic is simply mind-boggling — and further validates a top-three standing.   ( Jerry Rice also got mentioned 2 times.  #3 with Steve Young, and #1 with Joe Montana.)
    • A passing league now. You could say the same of probably 10 other WRs in the league right now. Marv did it in a very different league.    Not taking away from it, he's a Pro Bowl player.
    • This is why you need a well rounded team.  No matter how good 1,2, or 5 players play, it takes an entire team to win games.  Every aspect of the team thrives or wither off the success AND failures of other aspects.

    •   Sorry to keep harping on the Irish thing, but did you know the horseshoe has seven points on it?  (The Colts horseshoe, anyway.  Actual shoes for horses depend on the farrier).   Seven is considered a lucky number...  Lucky.  Luck.  I'm telling you, you picked the right team to root for.   7    
    •   Don't hold Boston against the Irish.  It's not our fault.    We love our green, which makes Indiana a tearmann.   I love it that you chose to root for an underdog instead of the Pats.  I don't think it's coincidence that you became a fan around the time Luck got drafted to the Colts.  That's providence.     Horseshoe?  Luck?  Four-leaf clover?  Come on.  Hoosier Hospitality has roots in Irish fun-lovery.  If you're lucky enough to be Irish, you're lucky enough!  May the luck of the Irish be with you!
