Updated Colts 7 Round Mock Draft

Round 1 - Gabe Carimi - OT from Wisconsin.  I fully expect that the Colts will go out and sign a UFA to play LT once the lockout is lifted, but unless the lockout is lifted on April 6th the Colts will play it safe.  Carimi is the safest pick because they can put him at LT if they are unable to sign a UFA and even if they are able to sign someone he can slide to the RT spot to take over for Diem either this year (if he's released) or next.  Even if Linkenbach wins the RT spot, Carimi is versatile enough to play OG as well. 

Round 2 - Tandon Doss - WR from Indiana.  I think the writing is on the wall that there is a strong probability that Reggie won't be back next year.  Doss has the size and speed to develop into a quality outside threat for us and is an excellent route runner.  He does have KR ability (which may not mean as much with the new rule) that can help us immediately.  I think the Colts could go with Titus Young here if they feel Tandon health concerns are too great, but Young has a few character concerns as well.


Round 3 - Drake Nevis - DT from LSU.  This guy can flat out play and has an incredible first step for a DT.  Go check out last years Florida game and watch him explode off the line.  Drake is 6'1" and under 300 but I think he could add about 10 pounds and still have the explosion.  Great value pick if he is still available.

Round 4 - Joe Lefeged - S from Rutgers.  I think this pick is a no-brainer at this point in the draft.  Lefeged is a hard hiting safety, has good instincts, played mostly in the box, and has the ability to plug right in just as Bethea did.  He does tend to get tied up in blocks but he played closer to the line of scrimmage then he will be asked of once he is in the league.  He also has been a KR, a gunner, and a fantastic special teams player.

Round 5 - Douglas Hogue - LB from Syracuse.  Hogue has good size (6'3", 235) and has great speed to the sidelines.  Good recognition and hands in coverage and is a strong tackler and recognition.  Good depth and special teams player who could play SLB if Angerer gets moved to the inside in the future.

Round 6 - Alex Linnenkohl - OG/C from Oregon St.  Fits the typical size and speed requirements for our interior OL.  Oregon State was a good running team and Linnenkohl had a big hand in that achievement.  Linnenkohl does need to drive people off the ball more and gain strength but can pull and give us depth at two positions.

Round 7 - No pick.  Justin Tryon trade.

Ok.  I know this is all guess, but it's fun.
