At last my Heart and Mind agreed on something. Oh, don't get me wrong, they've shared views before---but have never been able to COME to an agreement. You see, the only time that they have ever agreed on something is when they both shared the same view originally---never before have they disagreed and found a comfortable compromise.
Last night ended their historic run as they put together a mock draft that they both agreed on.Of course, that was only after much shouting and many nasty insults being thrown back and forth...
When they finally chose their players, wrote them down, and went to lunch; I had to search through about 10 million different kinds and colors of paper before I found the right one that contained their picks.
After searching through piles of wadded, discarded papers, stepping on pens and pencils, and generally trying to clean up the mess that my Mind and Heart had made; I lay down that night and asked myself, "Where, oh where, did I go wrong?" Then I heard my Mind remark to my Heart, "This is going to take more than one night.*"
At any rate, I have posted the draft selections that they agreed on for you below.
Please keep in mind that this does not include any compensatory draft picks, or reflect any trading that the Colts might do, up, or down. The reason for multiple names on every pick (with the exception of Round 1) is that the player of preferred choice may or may not be available by the time the Colts are again on the clock. If there are any questions as to why my Mind and Heart selected as they did, please leave a comment here or send a message to me and I will share that comment with my Heart and Mind and address it at a later date.
With that said, here we go!
