*Colts re-sign Justin Houston- This may be after the draft but as of now I think he is the best chance to help our pass rush not take a step back unless we want to try Ingram or Clowney.

 

**I still have hope Ertz could end up available but if not oh well.

 

Here we go... yep. No trades.

 

1. Sam Cosmi- LT- The time to replace AC is now. This may not technically be the best valued player available but he's not far off. If we wait until 54 I think there will have been a run on the best remaining OTs. Take a quality athletic LT at 21 and keep the o-line in great shape. Next year we are likely without a 1st, there may not be a better time. We could trade back but that's hard to predict. We would need a great deal to pass on our pick of the litter imo. 

 

2.  Ifeatu Melifonwu- CB- Great fit. Tall, athletic, excels in zone. Not quite as big a need as DE but not far behind. Rhodes only has one year for now and I, like others, would like to see an upgrade over RYS.

 

4. Elerson Smith- DE- With the need at LT and the lack of value in round two we opt to dig for athletic upside for our pass rush addition. We come up with Smith. He's a bit of a forum favorite and I get why. We can't confidently fix every issue this year imo, but if you can't, at least find some upside.

 

5. Dazz Newsome‐ WR- We may very well pass up a lot of good value at WR this draft but the good news is some solid prospects are likely to fall into the later rounds. An explosive prospect who can compete with Campbell to replace Hilton as our little guy speedster. Lol

 

6. Quentin Morris- TE- One of my favorite late round prospects. With this being an average to below average TE class after Pitts, Morris offers some upside to provide us with a move TE down the line.

 

7. Franklin McCain III- CB- Borrowing again from a pool of forum recommendations. You can't realistically expect late round guys to all be hits but I'm down for investing those final picks in depth we can groom.

 

Final notes:

 

- Cosmi and Melifonwu are my favorite no trade 1-2 realistic punch. Value and need matches pretty nicely imo.

 

-I've seen Newsome graded as a 2nd rounder but most have him at rounds 4-5. He also ran a 4.38 so I might be a bit optimistic about his availability

 

-I could always do another mock but I don't see my view changing much from now until the 29th.

This fills some holes!

 

He may very well go CB in round 2, and he would fit the defense we play

 

Of course that name will be a killer for people to pronounce correctly.....  :)

What! A mock with no trades...WTH 

 

Nice mock. 

Lol!  I know what a breath of fresh air!  I agree with Funk, if Darrisaw and Tenkins are off the board and the Colts highly value Cosmi, you take him at 21.  This trading down talk and hoping he might be there is not ideal.  He could easily be taken prior and all you received for trading down was missing out on your guy and basically a 4th rounder, as the 3rd will be at the very bottom of round 3.  Nice job Funk!

That’s a very solid no trade down mock. I’m also a big Melifonwu fan. I don’t think there’s a corner who better fits our team than him. Like the Smith pick in round 4. He’s got traits that you just love. Well done

    • Hmmm...part of me wonders if one of the big 3 isn’t re-signed. I am sort of surprised that none of them have been. Then again, that’s likely more of a summer move.   Not that they shouldn’t...but from a logistical roster construction perspective...that’s likely ~$55M to (3) players.   For a GM who values flexibility with the cap, it’s going to be increasingly difficulty to find it with several top tier non-QB contracts. They could have 1/3 of a salary cap going to (4) non-QBs.   Also, something to consider is that DeFo has no gtd money after two more seasons. So a bold prediction might be that one of Q/Smith/Leonard/DeFo will not be on the 2023 roster.   Good problems to have though. Just wouldn’t surprise if a trade happened at some point.    As for a couple others, I don’t think Glow is back...unless it’s a cheap deal (but there’s no reason for him to take that...he’s a starting RG in the NFL).   Hines will likely be back...if he’s willing to take a $4-5M AAV (which is on par with his counterparts). Interestingly, Taylor is up for an extension after year 3...when Hines would be heading into year 2 of his extension. Are the Colts going to have a healthy Taylor paid less than Hines? 
    • My guess would be no. I'm not aware of anywhere requiring proof of vaccination except maybe schools or government employees. While I do think everyone who can get vaccinated should, it would be a disaster if it was absolutely required to go in public. 
    • Got the tix hotel and flight from Boston to Nashville for the game on the 9/26th.  San Fran was my second choice too
    • Nice!  That was our second choice!
