Sporting News Colts Picks ...

 

So i was looking over an old Sporting News today, the NFL Draft Preview isssue - dated April 13, and i noticed a couple interesting things ...

A former NFL scout put together his top 100 picks list and had the Colts taking DT Peria Jerry in the first round,. Then he has the Colts taking WR Austin Collie in the second round and ILB Jason Phillips in the third round with the 92nd pick.

OK, Peria Jerry in the first round, ok fair enough, and even Phillips in the third I'm ok with.  Besides being an injury risk, i think he looks like a solid pick with plenty of potential.  But Austin Collie ?? Who ?? With all the depth at WR this year i'm not sure of this pick ... Collie is only listed in one fanpost on all of Stampede Blue (Bamock's Big Board - in the Fifth round !! ). He seems to have had a great career at BYU and might fit in nicely with the Colts, possibly much in the mold of a Brandon Stokley.  But i'm not sure he warrants a second round pick, if we can grab him later on great, but the second round with the 61 pick ??

Then, in the actual team overview, it says the Colt need depth at LB and James Laurinaitis could slip to them at 27 ... yet he went at pick 33 on their top 100 picks and seems to be going in that general area in most mock drafts.

So this leads to a couple questions .... one, are the guys at Sporting News on to something SB is not ??? And if we do pursue a WR in the early rounds, who does Polian go after ??? With the news on Percy Harvin and Brandon Tate, is Collie really a possibility there ???

I am hoping the Colts are able to add depth at LB and snag a WR, so love to hear your current thoughts ...
