My 2014 Colts Mock Draft

I personally love the NFL Draft. I am personally a reader of Mocking the Draft all year round, so obviously I like to look at a lot of Colts mock drafts, and I also love to partake in a few from time to time. I'm not sure if any of you have heard about Fanspeaks mock draft simulator but it's great. Here's a link if anybody would like to do one

This persoanlly is my favorite of the drafts I've done so far. I also want to ask why they have the Colts having 6 picks. I've heard so much here that the Colts hold 4 picks, but this simulator says they hold 6. I just wanted to hear why that was. Anyways, onto my picks

2nd Round- 59th overall- DE Scott Crichton (Oregon State)- I know I've heard that he might be a better fit as a 4-3 defensive end, but I personally think that he can make the transition and I also think he's a steal at this spot as well

3rd Round- 90th overall- G Cyril Richardson (Baylor)- This is an obvious need for the Colts. Donald Thomas coming back healthy is really going to help the team, but competition between Richardson and Thornton could be good, and one or the other would also make a very good backup. I also think this could be sort of a steal. Just a month ago I saw him first round in a few mocks, but a bad Senior Bowl kind of knocked him down a bit. While that is a concern, he does have good potential

5th Round- 154th overall- DE Taylor Hart (Oregon)- A bit of a shock here with another defensive end being taken, but again, I think this is a BPA situation. Hart is a better fit for a 3-4 than Crichton would be, so wouldn't be as much of a project. While he may not have the potential Crichton would, I think he could contribute rushing the passer this upcoming season. Mathis, a progressing Werner and Adongo, and Hart, Crichton (and I guess possibly Sidbury, and I won't leave out a few sacks from Walden) would be a pretty group of rushers. I find that in the NFL, you can't have too many pass rushers.

6th Round- 187th overall- CB Chris Davis (Auburn)- Obviously we all remember the play of the year in college football, that being the Chris Davis missed field goal return for touchdown against Alabama in the Iron Bowl. We've seen the return ability that Davis has. He would help out our conerback spot and give us some depth, and would help out in the aforementioned return department.

7th Round- 209th overall- S Sean Parker (Washington)- I was really wanting Sunseri from Alabama to fall to this spot. Sean Parker is also a decent safety in his own right. A guy with 4 picks this past season is worth a shot in the 7th round for depth at the safety position

7th Round- 218th overall- ILB Jeremiah George (Iowa State)- Although I would have like to adress this position earlier in the draft, I just never found the right ILB for the value of the pick. I'm hoping the Colts will make this a position of emphasis in free agency. This is a solid depth draft pick here.

Please tell me what you guys think! And of course, GO COLTS!!!!!!!!!
