All us longtime Colts fans remember the time before Manning when the most exciting day on the football calendar was the NFL Draft. The national media actually talked about us and hope sprang eternal. This year is much like those years in that this season is only half way over, yet the draft is the most exciting day of our near-future. With that in mind, I present to you my wish list for our first round pick. This does not take into account the possibility of any trade that would take us out of the top 5 or give us multiple 1st rounders this year. With out any further ado:
1. Andrew Luck, QB Stanford
2. Matt Kalil, LT USC
3. Morris Claiborne, CB LSU
4. Justin Blackmon, WR OSU
5. Jonathan Martin, LT Stanford
I believe our OL and a CB are our great needs. True we just drafted two OL, but it is obvious we need more, and I believe in building inside out. Luck is obvious, and I think Blackmon is too good a weapon to leave out of the conversation.
What do you think? Fire away....
