BProland's First Colts Mock Draft

Recommended Posts

With it being almost impossible to make the playoffs this year, I wanted to look ahead to the offseason. Here is my first mock draft for our Colts. I haven't included Free Agency into this yet. I do hope Ballard is able to get a prized player this coming offseason in FA though. Perhaps if a certain Chiefs player were to come available (Chris Jones), Chris would be willing to shell out money for a huge position of need for a young impact player. 

 

On to the mock draft...

 

Round 1 Pick 15: CeeDee Lamb, WR, Oklahoma

 

 

I would be giddy if Ballard landed Lamb in the draft. He would give this team a superstar at WR for the future and would greatly help out Brissett, Love, and the other WRs due to the attention he will demand. My favorite WR in this class.

 
Round 2 Pick 3: Jordan Love, QB, Utah State 
Round 2 Pick 15: Marvin Wilson, DT, Florida State 
Round 3 Pick 15: Michael Pittman Jr., WR, USC 
Round 4 Pick 15: Cam Akers, RB, FSU
Round 5 Pick 14: Logan Stenberg, OG, Kentucky 
Round 6 Pick 9: Julian Blackmon, CB/S, Utah 
Round 6 Pick 15: Harrison Bryant, TE, Florida Atlantic 
Round 7 Pick 15: Rodrigo Blankenship, K, Georgia

I have the exact same people in my first three picks of my mock!

After that, I'm looking at:

Calvin Throckmorton, T, Oregon

Brycen Hopkins, TE, Purdue

and I don't think we should stay out of the defensive back market just yet.

Love will have to go into the draft with a broken throwing arm for him to go in the 2nd. I'm pretty sure his reasoning for declaring was because he was given 1st round grades by NFL scouts/personnel.

Perhaps a team has shown a lot of interest in him.

I would bet there are a good handful that have a lot of interest in him in the 1st, with the Colts being one of them.

I love this draft. Hits all key needs!

 

This team would be primed as a Championship contender for multiple years after this draft in my opinion. I think Lamb is going to be a pure stud at WR. Love will have the weapons, OL, and offensive minded coach in Reich to fully succeed. Marvin Wilson will occupy blockers at the DT position opening things up for Turay, Banogu, Houston, and our LBers. Pittman will serve as our big body WR who can be our lesser version of Mike Evans. Akers can challenge Mack for the lead back role. Stenberg can challenge Glow for the RG spot eventually. Blackmon will be a good depth S for Indy. Bryant can develop into a very good receiving TE. And Blankenship could take over the kicking duties from day 1.

Overall, I like what you're doing with this mock.

 

They may decide to go QB in the first to make sure they get their guy & lock in that 5th year option?

 

Like the Pittman pick, I'm no draftnik but he seems a little underrated to me on some of the draft sites.

 

Interested to see how the draft/FA plays out this off-season.

I think Pittman is vastly underrated. He could really be a perfect fit as a #2 or #3 WR in this offense. Would give Brissett a big body to throw to that can make the tough catches, and can out physical DBs.

Its likely that Love is the first pick. I expect the QBs will be over valued as usual. If you want one, you're going to have to go against the rule and pick him earlier than you want. Just the way it is. And the Colts need to get a good one. If Ballard is convinced that Love or whomever can be the future, you pay the price and get him.

    • If this is true then I am feeling more confident we will be making a move for a QB.  It appears they really did their scouting on Love and most likely all of the other QB prospects during the year.  I would bet they already have the rookie QB's ranked and know who would be their 1st choice.  The combine would only validate their choice.   Now they need to address the choices in FA and the trade route.  Right now I think those paths are more fluid and not as clear.  But those paths are still open.  The weeks following the SB will bring more clarity on the FA front and I think GM's will start making calls to each other regarding trade possibilities.  Then it's all about comparing the pros and cons for each path and making a decision on which one to pursue.  But the draft class QB's.  I think they know who their guy would be.  
    • I was right. Love was 4/6. So he didn’t have as many passing opportunities as Gordon or Herbert. So not sure what Patricia was trying to do by not doing more with him. Unless it was more to showcase his deep ball on play action. All three actually looked like they were completely in control of what they were doing. The other three were kind of a mess.
    • @DaveA1102 Would you like to participate this year?   @The Old Crow would you like to be the GM of the Ravens for the forum mock draft? It is still available.
    • While Gordon had a good game he didn't address the issue of accuracy beyond 20 yards, and with his not terrible but not good week at the SB. I really don't think he helped his stock.   As for Love I don't see him falling outside of the 1st round.   Remember the week of Prep is what's important to the scouts not the game
