The Colts have dwindled down what positions are more vital after their spending in free agency. We have addressed every position we needed help in, but we are still lacking depth in the CB, OL, And OLB positions. Which one is more important to the Colts?
Round 1: Jonathan Banks- CB from Mississippi St.
Round 3: Kyle Long- OG from Oregon
Round 4: William Gholston- DE from Michigan St.
Round 6: Ty Powell- DE from Harding
Round 7: Aaron Mellette- WR from Elon
Round 7: Dalton Freeman- C from Clemson
Jonathan Banks has the size for an NFL CB, but still could add some weight. He is 6 foot 2 and has the speed to recover when beaten down the field. The Colts need a big CB and someone who can play tough with the receivers.
Kyle Long from Oregon is 6 foot 6 and is the brother and son of NFL stars. Long flat out knows football, but has had some off the field distractions. Long could be the last piece for the Colts offensive line, which was horrible last year.
William Gholston is very big at 6 foot 6. He is compared to Cory Redding, so why not let him play under the man he is compared to? He would be a great addition to the Colts defense coming off the edge.
Ty Powell has received interest from the Colts as they worked him out a couple days ago. Watching his workout, he has great hands and athletic ability to play OLB. He is listed as a DE, but he has the size to be a OLB for the Colts.
Aaron Mellette from the smaller school Elon has been a star on the outside. He has great speed and leaping abilities to catch overthrown balls. Aaron could learn under Wayne, and could be a potential starter if DHB does not impress.
Dalton Freeman was a great player for Clemson. He is very smart and has great footwork. He sometimes plays upright and lets hard blitzes get the best of him. Lets see if this man could be Mr. Irrelevant this year for the Colts with our compensatory pick.
With these picks I can see every player turning out to be great starters and depth for the Colts. We address every position needed with this draft. I also say give Ballard 85% of the hand-offs and see how he does. He showed some great flashes last season for the Colts.
