For the second year in the row, the Colts have the last pick of the draft (which they received as compensation) and will get to pick Mr. Irrelevant. Now Chandler Harnish can have a irrelevant buddy :)
1st Round, #24 overall: Jonathan Cooper, OG: Assuming that Irsay lives up to his tweets about the wopper of the WR (he probably won't) and Grigs won't be able to trade down, we should focus on keeping Luck up. I believe Cooper will develop into a stud on the OL.
3rd Round, #86 overall: Travis Fredrick, OG/C: Fredrick is drafted in order to play center. Two other options are David Quessenberry (who I am very high on) and Barrett Jones if he drops due to injury concerns.
4th Round, #118 overall: Cornelius Washington, OLB/DE: Washington performed spectacularly at the Combine, placing in the top five of all of the drills he participated in. Washington can be a successor to Mathis. Don't look at his stats, for he was used the wrong way at Georgia.
6th Round, #182 overall: Emory Blake, WR: A good wide receiver that would hopefully become our 4th wideout this year and can take over Wayne later on.
7th Round, #214 overall: Moe Lee, CB: He looks like a good development prospect and will hopefully step up as a if somebody goes down (which with the Colt's secondary looks very likely)
7th Round, #254 overall: Dustin Hopkins, K: I love Vinatieri, but he has to go. Currently, he counts toward $3.4 million against the cap. He wasn't that good last year, hitting only 78.4% of his field goal attempts. It will be better to grab somebody younger and cheaper. Another option is letting McAfee handle placekicking duties and drafting a punter like Alex Dunnachie. Remember that 75 yard kick last year?
