Round 4 at the earliest. The injury he suffered was revealed to be a broken ankle, broken fibula, and torn deltoid ligaments. He says his doctors said he should be ready to go by training camp though. Maybe round 3 if the medical is really good, but round 4 is the floor. Guy hasn’t played football since October.
Bryce Hall is worth a look in the later rounds of the Draft. Hall is a 6'1 202 pound cornerback out of Virginia with 32 1/4 inch arms. He just screams a Ballard type CB. He didn't do any drills at the combine due to a season ending injury he suffered last season. Another receiver turned CB just like Trevon Diggs. If Ballard wants to spend the first few picks of the 2nd round on offense, Hall is worth a look in the later rounds.
I'm torn to pick a CB here, but a top tight end might be lost while doing so. In the end, the higher potential to become a great NFL player wins, relative to the competition at the position.
I like Brycen Hopkins more, but Frank Reich knows how to get the best out of a player who has much higher upside in the long-term. This small school prospect has everything that NFL teams look after from their scouts, a blend of burst, short area ability, ball skills and potential to become a solid blocker in-line from the TE position, not that Colts OL need much help from that perspective. So, he fits right in here, with ability to produce as receiver early in his Rookie season in designed packages while also being able to help in run game. He can grow to be exceptional in both as he refined his overall skills with NFL coaching.
73rd overall pick, Indianapolis Colts select
Adam Trautman, TE, Dayton.
