Hey everyone, it's coltsguy511 and I'm back with my first 2013 Mock Draft and the Colts first five picks. I will give my evaluation on the Colts picks. This mock draft is in the case that the Colts have the #1 overall pick and trade out. In this mock trade the Colts receive 3 first rounders and 2 second rounders.

1: Minnesota Vikings (From Colts): Logan Thomas, QB, Virginia Tech

2: Miami Dolphins: Matt Barkley, QB, USC

3: Cleveland Brown: Robert Woods, WR, USC

4: St. Louis Rams: Keenan Allen, WR, California

5: Indianapolis Colts (From Vikings): David Amerson, CB, North Carolina State

6: Oakland Raiders: Tyler Wilson, QB, Arkansas

7: New York Jets: Star Lotuleilei, DT/NT, Utah

8: Jacksonville Jaguars: Jarvis Jones, OLB, Georgia

9: Arizona Cardinals: Tyler Bray, QB, Tennessee

10: Seattle Seahawks: Aaron Murray, QB, Georgia

11: San Diego Chargers: Marquess Wilson, WR, Washington State

12: St. Louis Rams (From Washington): D.J. Fluker, OT, Alabama

13: Cincinnati Bengals: Manti Te'o, LB, Notre Dame

14: Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Xavier Rhodes, CB, Florida State

15: Tennessee Titans: William Gholston, DE, Michigan State

16: New Orleans Saints: Jonathan Banks, CB, Mississippi State

17: Dallas Cowboys: Barkevious Mingo, DE/OLB, LSU

18: Buffalo Bills: DeMarcus Milliner, CB, Alabama

19: Carolina Panthers: Cobi Hamilton, WR, Arkansas

20: Philadelphia Eagles: Da'Rick Rodgers, WR, Tennessee

21: San Francisco 49ers: Ricky Wagner, OT, Wisconsin

22: Pittsburgh Steelers: Jonathan Hankins, DT/NT, Ohio State

23: Denver Broncos: Jackson Jeffcoat, DE/OLB, Texas

24: Atlanta Falcons: Tyler Eifert, TE, Notre Dame

25: Baltimore Ravens: Shayne Skov, ILB, Stanford

26: Kansas City Chiefs: Sam Montgomery, DE/OLB, LSU

27: Chicago Bears: Jake Mathews, OT, Texas A&M

28: Detroit Lions: Barrett Jones, Every single Offseason Line position, Alabama

29: Houston Texans: Sean Porter, OLB, Texas A&M

30: Green Bay Packers: Taylor Lewan, OT, Michigan

31: New England Patriots: Marcus Lattimore, RB, South Carolina

32: New York Giants: Alex Okafor, DE/OLB, Texas

Colts first 5 picks:

Round 1: CB David Amerson: A 6-3 Corner that will make you think that he's a receiver with his ball skills. Very good speed for his size. Plays physical. Only knock is that he may need to work on his press coverage.

Round 2: OLB 6-3 Brandon Jenkins and WR 6-4 Justin Hunter (via trade)

Brandon Jenkins: A speed edge rusher who comes round the corner. He has many moves that he can use on opposing OT's. A very good athlete. Biggest knock is that he is not very physical at times.

Justin Hunter: A big, athletic target at 6-4, Hunter plays faster than his size. He is a physical receiver who will burn you downfield. In high school he was rated as the nation No. 3 long jumper, No. 7 high jumper, and the No. 14 triple jumper. Named CBS No.3 athletic freak in College Football. He will be coming of a torn ACL this year.

Round 3: OG 6-3 Jonathan Cooper: A good athlete, who is strong at the point of attack, Jonathan Cooper is one of the best OG's in the country. He is both a very good run blocker and pass blocker. He paved the way for Giovanni Bernard, who had 1,253 yards and 13 TD's.

Round 4: 3-4 DE 6-8 Margus Hunt: A freak of nature. At 6-8 with an 82 inch wingspan, he has blocked 14 kicks in his 3 year college career. He will be a load for lineman to move even at the next level. Named CBS College Football "Athletic Freak". He is a junoir world champion at the shot put and discus throw. He has run a 4.7 40 yard dash and benched 225 lbs. 35 times. He has also vertical jumped 36 inches. He is a very raw player who may need developing, but could make a very good payoff.

Comment on changes you would make below, if you want. Thanks!!

Mad props to you, Coltsguy511.... an ambitious undertaking and a job very well done. But as someone who has followed drafts of all kinds for roughly 45 of my 55 years, I'd like to share some observations if I may...

A couple of speed bumps in your scenario...

-- First, the odds of the Colts finishing with the first overall pick I think are very, very small. I think a fair guess of the number of wins this year would be 5 or 6. I suppose a terrible defense and lots of injuries could impact that, but getting the first pick again I think is HIGHLY unlikely. More likely, we'd get a pick somewhere between 5-10 overall. (although I do LOVE the idea of trading back!)

-- Second, even if we pick first, it's not clear yet (way too early) that there is a franchise player in college football worthy of a team giving up so much (three 1's and two 2's in your scenario).... I don't think we'll know that until roughly January or February. Seriously. That's how long it took to realize that RG3 was worth it.

-- Third, more likely for the Colts in 2013, is a trade like what the Cowboys did. Dallas traded their 1st and 2nd (14th and 45th) to move up to #6 where Tampa was picking. So, the Bucs gained a 2nd rounder. Other than the HUGE St.louis/Wash trade involving three #1's a one #2, this was the only trade that garnered as much as a #2. Otherwise, all other 1st round trades involved 3rd and 4th round picks and/or lower. In short, it's very, very rare to get the monster block-buster trade. Possible, but rare.

-- Fourth, your 4th round projection, Margus Hunt, seems like a very desirable player based on nothing more than freakish tools and great workouts. So, if he can play, I doubt he lasts until the 4th round. Seems like someone who'd go much higher.

I don't mean to throw a bucket of cold water on all your hard work. ALL OF IT is possible. Just not very likely, that's all. I'm just as crazy as you are.... I've already mapped out how I'd like the Colts to draft in both 2013 & 2014. I'm sure I'll post them at some point throughout this year or next, I only share to say, you're not alone. Great things ahead. But Luck IS the right first step!

For one, In the description I put "If', just to clear that up. For 2 I agree with you. For 3, the skins got those for the #2 overall pick and if we have the #1, we may be able to get a little more. If you remember Barkley was rated above RG3 on most draft boards until he pulled out. Unless he has a horrible year or major injury, a team should look for him. For 4 I agree, I have looked Hunt up more and more and I see that he should be drafted before the 4th. I will probably change that pick in my next mock. Thanks for the advice and please read my other blog posts! I can't wait for the next few years, it'll be great seeing Luck develop, our team grow, and our current and future draft picks.
