The Colts just recently signed DHB to a one year contract that will change the shape of our needs through the draft. We no longer need a WR in the 1st Round, but still could use one in one of the later rounds since DHB's signing is only for one year. Defense is now the main priority for our draft. Here is how I think things will fan out with the Colts picks.
1st Round- Datone Jones- DE from UCLA
3rd Round- Sean Porter- OLB from Texas A&M
4th Round- Chris Harper- WR from Kansas St.
6th Round- Khaled Holmes- C from USC
7th Round- Brandon McGee- CB from Miami
7th Round- Josh Dworaczyk- OG from LSU
Datone Jones is a great versatile defensive end that uses his hands very effectively. Jones is 6 foot 4 and during his senior year, he produced 19 tackles for loss and 9 sacks. He is compared to Cory Redding, so this pick makes sense for him to learn under our very own Cory Redding.
Sean Porter is a very athletic linebacker who can stop the run effectively. He is a great pass rusher(something the Colts need badly) with a great spin move. He is able to drive through lineman and also cover big tight ends. Seems like a perfect fit for me.
Chris Harper started out as a QB for Oregon, but transferred to Kansas St. He was transformed into a WR and was fairly consistent. Harper is 6 foot 1 and is muscular racking up 20 reps at the Combine. He has strong hands to bring down the ball and shows mediocre speed. The Colts could work with him and see how things could play out if DHB doesn't impress next season.
Khaled Holmes was seen talking to Coach Pagano at USC's pro day. He is very big, but shows weakness when there are inside blitzes. Holmes most likely would not be a starter his rookie season, but can learn from our new offensive lineman we required in free agency.
Brandon McGee has the ability to size-up with NFL receivers, but did not have a very productive senior year with only 2 picks. He has great speed and has strong hands to break up passes. McGee would be a great CB for depth on the Colts roster.
Josh Dworacyzk is very tall standing at 6 foot 6, and shows great pass protection. Josh(not saying his last name) also uses his time to help other lineman holding their blocks, but did suffer a knee injury during fall camp. He was the top offensive lineman in the state coming out of high school, so if he regains strength in his knee, he could be a potential steal maybe.
Tell me what you think the Colts will/should do after the changing of our needs after the signing of DHB.
