Call me crazy...but Warmack or Cooper will be on the board at #24

This would change everything, right? The Colts would not have a choice, they would have to make the pick. Why do I think one will fall you ask? Lets look at the Offensive Guards selected in the 1st round of the past 10 drafts:

2012 - #24 Steelers drafted OG David DeCastro; #27 Bengals drafted OG Kevin Zeitler 2011 - #23 Eagles drafted OG Danny Watkins 2010 - #17 49ers drafted Mike Lupati 2009 – there were no OG taken in round 1 2008 – there were no OG taken in round 1 2007 - #29 Ravens drafted OG Ben Grubbs 2006 - #23 Buccaneers drafted OG Davin Joseph 2005 - #32 Patriots drafted OG Logan Mankins 2004 – there were no OG taken in round 1 2003 – there were no OG taken in round 1

Out of 320 players selected in the 1st round over the past 10 drafts, only 7 of them were Offensive Guards. Only 7 people! Only 3 have been selected ahead of the #24 spot. I do understand that this draft is unique, but recent history proves that the Offensive Guard position gets passed over in round 1. Value can be had in rounds 2 and 3 at the Offensive Guard position. Teams drafting 1-15 don't need an Offensive Guard to answer their problems, they need playmakers! If one does fall, I could see a situation where we might be able to trade the pick and still acquire Larry Warford. We've seen a lot of crazier things happen during NFL drafts...why not Warmack/Cooper to the Colts?
