2015 Fanspeak Colts Mock Drafts

Recommended Posts

29: R1P29

DE RANDY GREGORY

NEBRASKA

Expected to go in the top 5 picks but he fell to me so I took him.

61: R2P29

OLB HAUOLI KIKAHA

WASHINGTON

Good pass rusher who with Gregory, Newsome, Werner would be a talented but young and cheap foursome.

93: R3P29

OT JAKE FISHER

OREGON

Solidify the offensive line.

125: R4P29

CB ALEX CARTER

STANFORD

Coming from the same school as Richard Sherman, he's fell down the board and I've stopped the fall.

157: R5P29

CB RONALD DARBY

FLORIDA STATE

Speedy cornerback to fill the roster out. Carter and Darby would add talent to a thin position.

189: R6P29

ILB TREY DEPRIEST

ALABAMA

Coming from Alabama's 3-4 defense he should fit in quickly, leader and good tackler. Lacks overall athleticism but good back up and possible replacement for Jackson.

191: R6P31

S ANTHONY JEFFERSON

CALIFORNIA - LOS ANGELES

Needed a safety, best on the board.

219: R7P27

OLB MICHAEL ORAKPO

Coming from a footballing family, has the talent and the body but needs coaching.

29: R1P29
DT DANNY SHELTON
WASHINGTON
61: R2P29
OLB HAUOLI KIKAHA
WASHINGTON
93: R3P29
ILB HAYES PULLARD
SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA
125: R4P29
OT ROB HAVENSTEIN
WISCONSIN
157: R5P29
S ADRIAN AMOS
PENN STATE
189: R6P29
RB KARLOS WILLIAMS
FLORIDA STATE
191: R6P31
DT DARIUS PHILON
ARKANSAS
219: R7P27
CB JUSTIN COLEMAN
TENNESSEE

 

If this happened, I would immediately be so happy. This would be followed by being in the depths of depression because I have to wait 5 months until football.

we could move  Mewhort to RT

This would plug a lot of holes.  The run game could be scary.

 

Perryman could be the physical presence this defense needs.  Kikaha would be a steal at 2

Allen is a physical one cut runner who can catch.

If Drummond falls to the 4th, he could be a great value.

Time for another one.  They have updated the website with a lot more big boards.  I did this one using the Optimum Scouting big board:

 

29: R1P29
OT JAKE FISHER
OREGON

Analysis: I'm surprised he fell so much.  He was ranked as the #8 prospect on the big board, but I got him at 29.  If he's there at 29, I'd be all for taking him.  He needs to add a bit of weight (he's 6'6", 300 lbs), and he's been penalized heavily, but I think he has the tools to be a very good tackle.  The raw talent is there, but he needs some good coaching to improve his technique and some work in the weight room.  He could be our RT of the future and we have our bookends set with Castonzo and Fisher.

 

61: R2P29
CB ALEX CARTER
STANFORD

Analysis: He's big (6'0", 202 lbs), smart, and physical.  He could be a candidate to move to safety, but I would love to see what Pagano could do with this guy.

 

93: R3P29
WR DORIAL GREEN-BECKHAM
OKLAHOMA

Analysis: I think the book on DGB is well-documented (if you want to read Dustin's analysis of him, it's here: http://forums.colts.com/topic/35452-scouting-profile-dorial-green-beckham-wr-missourioklahmoa/). He's drawn comparisons to Megatron, AJ Green, and a few other big name receivers.  He has the talent to be an elite receiver, but needs to stay out of trouble off the field.  If we can bring Reggie back for another year, perhaps his mentorship can really help DGB.

 

125: R4P29
DE DANIELLE HUNTER
LSU

Analysis: He's listed as a DE, but would switch to OLB in our system because of his size (6'6", 240 lbs).  He's a very good athlete, but his sack production doesn't match what his athleticism shows.  However, he's shown himself to be a solid run defender.  Because he does have so much athleticism, I think his pass rushing ability could be developed with some good coaching.  If nothing else, he gives us a good run defender.

 

157: R5P29
S DURRELL ESKRIDGE
SYRACUSE

Analysis: He's huge (6'3, 207 lbs). Unfortunately, that's kinda all he has going for him right now.  His technique needs work and many people are saying he should have stayed another year at Syracuse.  However, I think he has the raw ability to develop into a solid S, especially with a DB guru like Pagano showing him the ropes.

 

189: R6P29
DT JOEY MBU
HOUSTON

Analysis: He plays hard to every whistle and gives it 100%.  He's got great character, too.  However, he isn't someone we could look to for pass rush up the middle.  He could set the edge as a 5-technique, but I think the best utilization of his abilities would be to take up blockers and let the linebackers clean up the plays.

 

191: R6P31
G JAMON BROWN
LOUISVILLE

Analysis: He's a big body (6'6", 326 lbs) and he plays quicker than he does fast.  I think he has the raw ability to develop into a good guard.  However, it would need good coaching and patience.

 

219: R7P27
RB ZACH ZENNER
SOUTH DAKOTA ST

Analysis: He's a hard-working, physical runner.  He doesn't dance much around the line of scrimmage.  Instead, he makes one cut and goes.  He could use some improvement in pass protection, but he's a high motor guy.

 

Overall analysis: I really like what I was able to get out of this draft.  There's a lot of talent here, but it will need some development.  Most of these guys won't make a big impact their rookie year, but I would be really excited to see how they do in years 2 and 3.  The theme here appears to be "talented, but raw and will need good coaching to develop".  However, I think the guys here are versatile, talented, and hard-working.  I would be really excited about the potential of this group

I thought Mbu looked very nice out there. Going to have to go look at some tape. I also think you should put Stephone Anthony somewhere in that mock.

After the combine I'm going to make some big changes.  There are many OL I like such as:  Daryl Williams, Rob Haverstein, Jamil Douglas, Shaq Mason, and B.J Finney, but taking these guys in the first four rounds would be a reach because there is so much more value on defense  in the top half of the draft.  Considering we haven't made the adjustment to getting players who really fit our new D Scheme, we just have to load up on defense.

 

Trade down for a 2, and a 3.

 

2.  Hau'oli Kikaha  OLB  Washington  -  unblockable

2.  Stephone Anthony  ILB     Clemson    my upgrade of the D would start with our linebackers

3.  Henry Anderson  DE  Stanford   Athletic freak who can get off blocks.

3.  Adrian Amos   S  Penn State   - 

4. Doran Grant  CB   Ohio State -    I have no idea why this guy is ranked this low.  A steal.

5.  B.J  Finney   OC   Kansas State   Very reliable,  good depth for 5th

6.  Kenny Bell   WR   Nebraska

6.  James Castleman  DT  Oklahoma State

7.  Raheem Mostert  KR  Purdue.  Why not  Kid can burn and could be special teams weapon.

 

Bad news,  our O-line would still stink, but that would plug a whole lot of holes on the D, especially the front7.  I'm also having second thought about blowing big money on the interior OL in FA.  I'm a big trench guy, but I would still find patches until we can build the OL through the draft.  Be smart with the pocket book.

My latest attempt using the DraftTV big board:

 

29: R1P29
OT LA’EL COLLINS
LSU

Analysis: He was ranked as the #8 prospect on the board and I got him at 29. I think people generally know a lot about him, as he's one of the bigger names among OL prospects.  He plays with a good mean streak.  I think he was a left tackle in college, but he would either be a RT or RG in Indy.  I think he could do both, but would be far better suited to RG because of some technique flaws.

 

61: R2P29
G TRE' JACKSON
FLORIDA STATE

Analysis: I really like this pick.  He has great talent, but needs to work on conditioning and footwork.  Given what Pagano has been able to teach Davis about conditioning and taking care of your body, I think he can do the same with Jackson.

 

93: R3P29
RB JAY AJAYI
BOISE STATE

Analysis: Dustin's analysis of him is available here: http://forums.colts.com/topic/35274-scouting-profile-jay-ajayi-rb-boise-state/. He's drawn some comparisons to Marshawn Lynch because of his physical running style and his size.  He could be the bowling ball of butcher knives we were hoping to get with Trent.  He can also catch the ball out of the backfield, so I think he could immediately become our starter or even split reps pretty evenly with Herron until he gets more acclimated to the pro game.

 

125: R4P29
CB BYRON JONES
UCONN

Analysis: He's blown up the Combine, even setting a new world record in the broad jump.  He's extremely explosive and has all kinds of athletic talent.  He's smart and has good character.  I think he has all kinds of physical tools, but he's raw.  I would love to see what Pagano can do with him.

 

157: R5P29
DE CJ OLANIYAN
PENN STATE

Analysis: He's a very aggressive and relentless player.  He's listed as DE, but would have to switch to OLB in our system.  I took him mostly of the strength of his motor and aggression.

 

189: R6P29
DE DANIELLE HUNTER
LSU

Analysis given in previous mock

 

191: R6P31
WR AUSTIN HILL
ARIZONA

Analysis:  Not only did he tear his ACL in spring of 2013, but there are reports that it's been slow to heal and still isn't completely healed, even though it's been almost 2 years.  When a guy does through adversity like that, I think it motivates him to work harder.  I like his size at 6'3", 210 lbs, but his route running and ability to get separation needs to be improved.  I think he's worth a late round pick; give him an opportunity and possibly a mentor in Reggie Wayne and see what he can do.  If he develops, great.  If not, no big loss.

 

219: R7P27
S ADRIAN AMOS
PENN STATE
Analysis: He comes across to me as a very Seattle-esque DB.  He's pretty big (6'0" 218 lbs), is very intelligent, and loves to watch tape.  His coverage skills are also pretty good.  However, he is not a guy you would want to put in the box.  I have no problem taking a guy like that.

 

UNDRAFTED:

S IBRAHEIM CAMPBELL

NORTHWESTERN

Analysis: The drafting app doesn't have an undrafted section, but I noticed Campbell was still there after the last pick.  He's a very physical player with some decent coverage ability.  He would probably start on special teams, but I think he could develop into a solid starter.

 

Overall analysis:  I like the talent I got in this draft.  I was a little iffy on taking Jackson in the 2nd round since I project Collins to be a guard and I project the same for Jackson, but I couldn't pass on the talent.  I took 3 DBs in this draft, all of whom are raw in some respect.  After seeing what Pagano has been able to do with Vontae, I've had no problem taking raw DB prospects.  I like the talent, but I think the coaches would have to do some thinking about where each guy fits

I'm going for the extreme trade down model.  In the top part of the draft, unless you want a CB or a WR, you might as well just get more picks. 

#1  = SD 2 &3

#2 = Min 3 &4

SD #2  = NO 3 &4

 

3.  Henry Anderson DE Stanford

3.  Tyler Lockett  WR

3.  Jeremy Langford  RB  MSU

3.  Doran Grant  CB  OSU

4.  Anthony Harris  S

4.  Kurtis Drummond S

4.  Rob Haverstein  OT 

5.  B. J. Finney  OC

 

FA  Pernell McPhee

Dan Williams

Rodney Hudson

 

I wouldn't throw money at Franklin or Iupati.  I'm tired of 2nd rate OL who can't run&pass block.  Be patient, draft an athlete.  At least we could fix the center problem. In FA, get a NT and a C then add Mcphee and draft Anderson to go with Arthur Jones

I wouldn't throw money at Franklin or Iupati.  I'm tired of 2nd rate OL who can't run&pass block.  Be patient, draft an athlete.  At least we could fix the center problem. In FA, get a NT and a C then add Mcphee and draft Anderson to go with Arthur Jones

 

What happened to our 6th round picks lol? And 7th for that matter.

What happened to our 6th round picks lol? And 7th for that matter.

To be honest, I have no idea who to get after the fifth round.  I don't really have any gems or sleepers.  I'll have to wait till I get some draft mags.  I know some people are high on James Castleman DT, but he weighed in at under 310.   Is he the next Kelly Gragg? Purdue's Mostert could be interesting if we keep a spot for KR only.  I also like the WR out of Nebraska, Kenny Bell. 

 

One of my my favorite Grigson late round picks is Ulrick John.  He looked fantastic in preseason.  I have high hopes that he will be a quality backup for years.

1. Eddie Goldman pair him with fairley or langford and suddenly or rush defense improves signifcantly

2. Denzel peryman- Jackson gets cut with freeman  and perryman the starting linebackers. perryman can tackle , cover ,great in run sport and is enforcer at ilb

3. Cody prewitt - i have colts sign gipson from browns , colts resigns adams as prewitt redshirts for a year or two

Latest mock using the Drafttek big board:

29: R1P29
OT ANDRUS PEAT
STANFORD

Analysis: He's one of the top rated OT prospects and he was available at 29.  With him and Castonzo, I think we have our bookend tackles for the next several years.  He might be good enough to force us to move Castonzo to the right side if he develops well.

 

61: R2P29
ILB BENARDRICK MCKINNEY
MISSISSIPPI ST

Analysis: One of the better ILB prospects available.  He was atop the rankings when I picked and he fills a need.

 

93: R3P29
CB RONALD DARBY
FLORIDA ST

Analysis: This guy has speed and then some.  He's pretty solid in coverage, but his run defense is lacking, so he'll definitely need to add some muscle and work on his tackling.

 

125: R4P29
RB DAVID COBB
MINNESOTA

Analysis: He's a tough runner.  Most of his yards came after contact, so you know he'll fight hard each run.  Pass catching and pass protection are a little iffy, but if he could sit and learn from Frank Gore for a couple years, he could really develop well.

 

157: R5P29
DT LETERRIUS WALTON
NORTHERN IOWA

Analysis: He's strong and his stock is gaining steam.  He's slowly creeping up draft boards.  He's played basketball and baseball, so you know he's athletic with good hands and feet.  He also used to be an offensive lineman.  NFL.com compares him to RJF, so it would be nice if we could get an RJF-type player on a rookie deal and try to develop him.

 

189: R6P29
DE BRIAN MIHALIK
BOSTON COLLEGE

Analysis: He's a hard-working, long player with a good motor.  To me, he comes across as a really poor man's JJ Watt.

 

191: R6P31
S CLAYTON GEATHERS
CENTRAL FLORIDA

Analysis: His coverage skills are a little iffy, but he's not afraid to hit someone.  He plays physically and can be a pretty good in-the-box safety.  He could contribute immediately on special teams.

 

219: R7P27
CB BYRON JONES
CONNECTICUT
Analysis given in previous mock

 

Overall analysis: Note the strong emphasis on defense. We've made plenty of big splashes on the offensive side of the ball in free agency, so I think we focus on defense more in the draft.  I like the talent I was able to get here.  I don't like how we still have a gaping hole at safety, but perhaps Darby could log some time there in the preseason or training camp and it might turn out well?  Alternatively, there's still time in free agency to sign another safety.  Overall, I like the talent this group brings.  The later guys need some development to become more complete players (as usual with any draft), but I think the potential is there

So this is with the Drafttek big board. A ton of picks were highly questionable and I really wanted to grab an OT but the value was never there...

29: R1P29

DT JORDAN PHILLIPS

OKLAHOMA

I really like this pick if it lands. Strong presence in the middle who can shift to either end spot.

61: R2P29

ILB BENARDRICK MCKINNEY

MISSISSIPPI ST

I'm torn on this... I wanted Perryman. So bad... but he and Kendricks were gone in the first before I picked and Mckinney seems like high value here as we need Athleticism in our LB corps.

93: R3P29

CB RONALD DARBY

FLORIDA ST

125: R4P29

Again the value here is outstanding. Physical specimen with some big game experience at FSU. I couldn't pass the chance at grabbing a potential #2 corner in the 3rd.

S JAQUISKI TARTT

SAMFORD

157: R5P29

I consider this value. Tartt has been one of my safeties aside from Holliman That I see as NFL material. I have some partial worry for man coverage ability but I think he can be not only a box safety but play "limited" in space.

OLB TONY WASHINGTON

OREGON

189: R6P29

ok... so I didn't expect Washington here. in comparison to what was left I saw Washington as a bigger value than the receivers and Gaurds that were available.

RB MALCOLM BROWN

TEXAS

191: R6P31

Big grinder back. I'm assuming we start the year with Gore/Boom getting the most carries and to give Gore some rest before playoffs we can use Brown for some straight line running.

S CLAYTON GEATHERS

CENTRAL FLORIDA

219: R7P27

A box safety that is a tad raw. Special teams player until he can learn to play with some patience and work on play recognition.

DT LOUIS TRINCA-PASAT

IOWA

I see this guy as a DE. Size may be a worry but motor isn't. Guys like this work their tale off to make rosters and I hope this guy can do that.

29: R1P29
DT EDDIE GOLDMAN
FLORIDA STATE
61: R2P29
RB JAY AJAYI
BOISE STATE
93: R3P29
OT CEDRIC OGBUEHI
TEXAS A&M
125: R4P29
S CLAYTON GEATHERS
UCF
157: R5P29
ILB HAYES PULLARD
USC
189: R6P29
S ADRIAN AMOS
PENN STATE
191: R6P31
OT TYRUS THOMPSON
OKLAHOMA
219: R7P27
CB JUSTIN COLEMAN
TENNESSEE

 

I don't like that I ended up doubling upon tackles (I'm fine doubling up on safeties), but they were the best players available (in my eyes).  I'll admit that I'm targeting Geathers and Pullard.

Our Colts need to consider Adam Vinatieri's replacement. Next year one of the best kickers to come out for a long time will be Robert Aguayo who is projected to be one of the rare top day 2 picks.

What would it take for our Colts to gain an additional 2016 Round 2 pick?

Do we trade a current player (Bjorn Werner 2013 Round 1 pick) for a late 2015 selection (Round 4 or 5) and command a 2016 Round 2 pick.

Or trade out of Round 1 this year drop back gaining early Round 2 and command 2016 Round 2 pick...

2015 Draft

29) FS Cody Prewitt (works also early Round 2 trade)

61) DB Bryan Jones (world record in combine)

93) RB Jeremy Langford (career collegiate stats but quit behind other noted backs from Big 10)

125) ILB Taiwan Jones (3/4 LB)

157) QB Sean Mannion (future back up or trade bait with upside)

189) SS Clayton Geathers (better against run but need immediate depth)

191) C Andy Galik or OT Corey Robinson (OL backups)

219) OG/C Miles Dieffenbach or DT Derrick Lott (backups with upside. Semi stars got injured)

1.  Eric Kendricks

2.  Haoli Kikaha

3.  Henry Anderson

4.  B.J. Finney

5.  Ben Heeney

6.  Kenny Bell

6.  Jake Ryan

 

If Kendricks isn't there, and if nobody drops at a position we need, I'd trade down and pick up an offensive tackle like Daryl Williams or Donovan Smith.  Kikaha is just plain productive.  Looks better on the field than in drills.  Unreal hand use.  Heeney is one mean little dude.  Active, great instincts, hits like a truck.  I have no idea why Kenny Bell gets no respect.  Makes plays in every game you watch.  I'd take him as high as the 4th.  Jake Ryan is an above average athlete with great instincts.

 

Imagine   Mathis  Irving  Kendricks  Walden

with Kikaha, and Cole as backups. 

Our secondary would salivate for that kind of pressure.

Throw in Anderson and Langford at the DE spots with A. Jones, and the front seven looks a lot scarier.

Latest attempt using the Composite big board:

29: R1P29
ILB BENARDRICK MCKINNEY
MISSISSIPPI STATE

Analysis given in previous mock

 

61: R2P29
CB QUINTEN ROLLINS
MIAMI (OHIO)

Analysis: A former basketball player, he has great feet and athletic ability (though his long sprints leave something to be desired).  He needs some technique work, but the raw ability is there.  Work your magic, Pagano!

 

93: R3P29
OT DARYL WILLIAMS
OKLAHOMA

Analysis: He isn't as you'd like from a tackle, but he plays aggressively and gives it his all.  He's very physical and has an intense mean streak.  He also has a great work ethic.  Because his athleticism isn't so great, he could move inside to guard.  That would give us 2 guards with really good mean streaks in Mewhort and Williams.  If Williams can work on his footwork and athleticism, he could be a very good RT.

 

125: R4P29
RB DAVID COBB
MINNESOTA

Analysis given in previous mock

 

157: R5P29
DT CHRISTIAN COVINGTON
RICE

Analysis: He dislocated his kneecap and missed nearly all of last year because of it.  He has talent, but it all depends on how his knee has healed.

 

189: R6P29
S IBRAHEIM CAMPBELL
NORTHWESTERN

Analysis given in previous mock

 

191: R6P31
ILB TAIWAN JONES
MICHIGAN STATE

Analysis: He's played ILB and OLB, so he can do both.  He's a very physical and aggressive player who seeks contact and loves to hit, and he's a good leader.  His coverage skills leave something to be desired.  At worst, we have a guy who can be a monster on special teams and maybe log some playing time on first and second down.

 

219: R7P27
OLB DAVIS TULL
CHATTANOOGA
Analysis: He's another guy who uses intangibles to win.  He's tough and intelligent with decent athleticism/footwork and a very hard worker.  If he adds some weight (currently listed at 246 lbs), he could be a solid addition to our linebackers.

 

Overall analysis: As you can see, I went hard at the defense on this draft.  I would have liked to get another defensive line prospect, but I like the talent here.  I took a few guys based on their toughness, physicality, and aggressiveness.  I think these guys would all be solid additions and could contribute on offense, defense, or special teams (with the exception of Covington who may need some time to heal up from his knee injury).  The talent here is also a little dependent on coaches being able to maximize the potential of the players.  There aren't many polished products here, but with good coaching, these guys could all develop into solid contributors.

    • Spent most of my adult life working at Edwards AFB.... Chuck and a handful of test pilots allowed our Air Force to make incredible strides putting their lives on the line there.... pushing the boundaries of the planes they flew.   It was nice to see him get a game ball after we beat  the Texans.     
    • I also watched "some" of the pro bowl & Luck did look bad. But it was the skills challenge that was most telling & depressing.  Now surely Luck isn't gonna come out throwing rockets in a silly contest, but the lack of zip on his passes & the horrendous accuracy was shocking.  He may have had the lowest score in history.  Maybe hit the closest targets twice.    That, coupled with the bad playoff game, had me really worried about arm fatigue or a dead arm. Maybe understandable coming off his first year back from surgery?  But maybe there's more there???  Then he skips OTA's &, correct me if I'm wrong, his first pass of his first training camp practice vs the defense was an interception...   Then he didn't practice for a while.  Then came out and "gave it one more go" before the Bengals game & retired the following week.  I doubt Luck walks away from the game because of an ankle injury unless major surgery was the only option.  I think it may have been the shoulder.   And because of that & the way he retired, I don't know if we could get two firsts. I can see a first and a second though. Then again, Elway might give us that and then some...    Regardless, barring this team completely coming off the rails or JB getting injured, I don't think you could just give Luck the job back.  I don't know if the majority of the players would just be ok with that.  This is becoming JB's team as each week passes.  If he gets us to the playoffs & wins a game, I think it'll be tough to take the job from him.     Look at the joy with which Doyle celebrates when we score. The way he looks to JB & congratulates him.  Same for the lineman. It's a tight brotherhood in that locker room. And Luck isn't in there everyday like JB is & how can they trust that Luck has that fire back burning in his belly?  Luck may have gotten Drew Bledsoe'd.    If he comes back, you move him to the NFC for the most ransom you can get. Then we finish putting the key pieces to our Dynasty in place with those picks...  
    • I agree.  Hopefully Turay bounces back healthy and we bring in another young DE or 2, which could reduce the amount of snaps Sheard/Houston get next year, but they are both still playing at a high level and are good character guys and all-around football players.  Sure can't hurt to have our young guys get groomed by those 2.   Since Sheard has been back, it seems like there's been significant improvement in Autry's game as well.
    • He was stationed at Fort Benjamin Harrison in Indianapolis (as per that article).  I found he lives in California now, but then googled "Is Chuck Yeager a Colts Fan?" and came up with this:    https://blog.ticketmaster.com/indianapolis-colts-team-fans/   "The team counts among its loyal followers a number of big-time celebrities, including: • Billy Bob Thornton • Famed test pilot Chuck Yeager • Actor Haley Joel Osment • Comedian/former talk show host David Letterman • Actress Elisabeth Shue • Rob Lowe"   _____________ Pretty cool, Mr. Irsay!
