2014 NFL Draft: Who will be available for the Colts at No. 59?

Matthew Emmons-US PRESSWIRE

It could be someone like Jeremiah Attaochu from Georgia or Aaron Colvin from Oklahoma.

The 2014 NFL Scouting Combine begins next week, and, after it concludes, team general managers and mock draft enthusiasts will re-arrange their boards based on measurables like speed during the 40-yard dash or strength based on the number of squats.

Old curmudgeons like CBS Sports' Pete Prisco seem to the think all this running, throwing, and lifting is a waste. "Watch the tape," he'll say, which isn't bad advice. However, it's an incomplete picture. David Carr's college tape looked pretty good in 2001. So did Ryan Leaf's in 1997.

The reality is all scouts, general managers, and team owners want to know how fast, strong, and/or smart a player is before they make their investment. Thus, the scouting combine.

While the Colts do not have a first round pick this year, the 2014 draft class is fairly deep due to a large number of underclassmen entering. With so many young prospects, the Scouting Combine now becomes even more important. Watching only one or two years of college tape simply isn't enough to gauge an underclassman's potential.

SB Nation's Dan Kadar has sketched out his top 200 players. I'm posting players 50-75 here because I'm willing to bet that the guy the Colts will get at pick No. 59 is currently grouped in this area.
