With the final Colts pick in the 2020 Gavin Mock Draft, Indianapolis has no real direction left to go, so upside is the answer here. Though he isn't on most draft boards, he is eligible and a great player. Though his film is against lesser competition, he dominated that level so much that he should make the transition to the NFL, and has a lot of upside with it.
With the 209th pick, the Indianapolis Colts select:
Derrek Tuszka, DE, NDSU
A low risk, high reward player, Tuszka should be a quality depth piece at worst and has the tools and potential to develop into a potential starting role. Just watch some highlights here to see why I love this prospect:
What say you, Colts Nation? Yea or Nay to this pick? I'm sure most of you have never heard of him before, but I really love his upside!
@VikingsFanInChennai is OTC for the Kansas City Chiefs!
Agree with all of this. Claypool was a guy many said was a project and projected in the 4th round. He has a crazy Combine workout and all of a sudden he’s being described as a high second rounder who can play immediately. His comp. is former teammate Myles Boykins who also blew up the combine last year, but Boykin didn’t have much of an impact last season. And speaking of Notre Dame receivers, remember Equanimeous St. Brown? Also 6’4” and surprised with a 4.4 40. He hasn’t had much of an impact either.
If you want a big bodied Notre Dame receiver, you’d probably be better off just drafting Cole Kmet. I know people are infatuated with the idea of the big body WR’s but there has to be more to their game than just being big and fast. We need a prototypical “X” receiver and can beat press coverage consistently. I like Mims or even Bryan Edwards more in that regard that Claypool. Pittman is also a good option as he can be what Funchess was supposed to be
