2013 Mock Draft Friday: Seriously? Manti Te'o To The Colts At No. 24?

USA TODAY Sports

Welcome to the return of Mock Draft Friday, were yours truly digs through the muck and filth of the Internet to find of mock drafts that I either find accurate, interesting, or amazing on a "WTF are you thinking" level.

Accurate Mock

Indianapolis Colts: Jesse Williams, NT, Alabama

All the Colts have at nose tackle are journeyman Brandon McKinney, who is coming off a torn ACL, and 2012 fifth-rounder Josh Chapman, who has no pro experience. They could opt to give Chapman a shot at the starting gig, but they're probably better off spending a first-round pick on one of the three nose tackles expected to be available.

My comment: If Williams is still there at No. 24, the Colts have to take him. Doesn't matter that pass rusher and wide receiver are bigger needs - which is why it's critical that they get addressed in free agency. Williams is the best nose tackle to hit the draft in a while. Teams him with Josh Chapman, another former Alabama alum, would form a wall-o-men the likes of which the NFL hasn't seen.

Interesting Mock

Mocking The Draft

Jamie Collins, Southern Mississippi The Colts did so much in free agency that it's tough to tell which route they will go in the draft. Despite over paying for linebacker Erik Walden, I think Indianapolis will try to find a young pass rusher for its 3-4 defense. Jamie Collins, a Dan Kadar favorite, could sneak into the first round after blowing up the combine.

My comment: Collins is an OLB and would fill a need- pass rusher. I don't know if I agree with passing on Jesse Williams, DeAndre Hopkins, or Desmond Trufant for Collins, but the prospect is intriguing.

Amazing 'WTF?' Mock

Daniel Jeremiah at NFL.com

Manti Te'o, LB, Notre Dame

The Colts were extremely active in free agency, filling several needs on both sides of the ball. One area where they still could use some help is at the linebacker spot. Te'o will be a productive pro despite lacking top-tier speed for the position.

My comment: I laughed out loud at this one. Despite being slow and having the specter of lying about a fake girlfriend, the Colts are going to take Te'o - who wouldn't start over Jerrell Freeman, Pat Angerer, or Kavell Conner - over a dynamic player like safety Matt Elam? I'd like whatever Jeremiah is injecting himself with.
