Early 2023 Colts Mock drafts


Recommended Posts

Thought it would be fun to start having Colts 2023 mocks, even if it is a bit early. Here is mine.

 

I would LOVE a draft like this. Notice I also robbed the Jets of their 2024 1st round pick in the process. 

It won't let me upload the PFF mock draft result image as it is too large. So here were the results.

 

I traded the 25th overall pick to the Jets. (I dealt 25, and 2024 round 2, 3, and 6)

In return I got the Jets 37th overall, and then their 2024 1st and 3rd

 

With the 37th pick I took LB Noah Sewell to create a top trio with Leonard and Okereke. 

 

Then with Indy's 2nd rounder I took CB Joey Porter Jr.

 

In the 3rd round I took WR Quentin Johnston.

I think I would take

 

D.J. Uiagalelei, QB, Clemson

Henry To'o To'o, LB, Alabama

Edenfuan Ulofoshio, LB, Washington

Zion Tupuola-Fetui, EDGE, Washington

 

And name them to the "Would You Like To Buy A Vowel" team

I think the 2023 draft will look the opposite of the 22 draft.    I think our Day 1 and Day 2 picks will all be defense with all our Day 3 picks being offense.   So, reversed. 
 

And since I’ve read that the DE class is supposed to be strong and deep, and I’m guessing Ngokoue moves on to another team….   I think we do this…. 
 

R1.  DE

R2.  CB.    Wash pick from Wentz deal

R2.   DB    Our pick 

R3.   Traded for Safety Cross

 

R4.    WR

R5.    OL

R6.    RB

R7.     OL

I think we need to start thinking about replacements for both Grover Stewart, Ryan Kelly and Luke Rhodes.

 

Now I do like Pinter but do wish he was younger and might have 3-5 years worth of playing.  Can only hope that French can show enough to stick around but wouldn't be shocked late in Round 1 if we target OC John Michael Schmitz (Minn).

 

As for Stewart am not too impressed with his backups in Williams and McIntosh as is.  My short list options for now are:

  • Jackson Cravens (Boise St)
  • Tyler Davis (Clemson)
  • Jeffery Johnson (Oklahoma)

FS  should also be up for consideration with Rodney McLeod on a short-term contract but do like FS Quindell Johnson (Memphis).

 

LS Luke Rhodes has been with the Colts for a while now and rarely does a LS get drafted but Jack Maddox (Clemson) might hear his name called in Round 6-7 making him the 9th LS drafted since 2015.

 

CBs are also high on our list would think.  Just like last year expect the draft to have too many players in que and many go UDFA given 5-6 year options many took with either redshirting or Covid extension(s).

“Both?”

    • I was very much against our signing Wentz and vowed to turn a blind eye to the Colts last season… I think it lasted maybe 4 weeks lol. Not only did I watch the games, I also watched Hard Knocks.  I learned that I’m all talk, I can’t back it up. I’ll bleed blue forever. Go Colts! 
    • Brooks will need a year or two.  He's got a tweener type frame. He could be a package guy on the interior if we're trying to one gap the OC, but we've got better options. IMO, he'll end up a PS guy. Johnson could end up on the PS too.    Give Brooks a year or two in a good S&C program. If he can put on some weight and add strength, I'd like his chances at depth NT.
    • Agree in general. But a lot of reviews have called out his slender bottom half. I watched some of his film, and he really struggled at times, even with LBs. 
    • Curtis Brooks has the potential to be the steal of the Draft for Colts by Jaleel Grandberry   Sixth-round pick for the Indianapolis Colts, Curtis Brooks, was impressive in his final year in college and could be the steal of the entire Draft. The 2022 draft class for the Indianapolis Colts is highlighted by the impressive offensive selections of day two. The Colts started their draft by selecting Alec Pierce, Jelani Woods, and Bernhard Raimann. While all three were great picks, and necessary, it was a selection that Indianapolis made on day three that could be the steal of the Draft. In the sixth round of the Draft, with the 216th-overall pick, Indy used its second-to-last pick to select defensive tackle Curtis Brooks out of Cincinnati. Brooks wasn’t highly ranked in the class, he was the 17th defensive tackle taken, and the second by the Colts. However, he flashed some things in college that should have fans excited about his ceiling. Curtis Brooks could be promising for Colts Brooks is just 6-foot-2 and 285 pounds but he played with a lot of explosiveness in his five years at Cincinnati. In his final season, Brooks recorded 57 tackles, 12.5 for a loss, and 7.5 sacks. On his tape, he routinely showcases explosiveness, athleticism, and a high motor as he disrupts runs and gets after the quarterback on passing plays. In addition to his film and impressive advanced stats, Brooks recorded 33 reps on the bench press, had 35.5 vertical, a 4.9 40-yard dash, and graded well in all other athletic evaluation tests. Now, Brooks gets to join a loaded Colts defense as he adjusts his tools to the professional level. He’ll be surrounded by stars and will be able to learn from the Pro Bowler, DeForest Buckner, in addition to other Indianapolis veterans. Despite going in the sixth round, it wouldn’t be a shock if Brooks becomes a really good professional player. Between his tape and his numbers, he has a pretty high ceiling. Hopefully, the Colts will help him reach that ceiling   Data on Curtis Brooks (DT, Cincinnati) from PFF Pass Rush Win Rate: 19.3% (best in class) Run Defense Stop Rate: 13.1% (best) Pass Rush grade: 90.4 (best) True Pass Set grade: 92.3 (best) True Pass Set win rate: 37%!! (best) Run Defense grade: 69.9
