Mock Draft Monday: More Chris Borland to the Colts

Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports

Because sure. Why not?

Apologies for not having anything posted for Mock Draft Friday. Instead, I bring you Mock Draft Monday!

Unfortunately, despite 10 days of the NFL watching young men run around in tights and underwear, the mock drafters didn't give us Colts fans a lot of variety post-Combine.

Here's what they have for us at the No. 59th overall pick.

Walter Football

Chris Borland, ILB, Wisconsin

Reason:

The Colts need help all over their defense, including the linebacking corps, where the injury-prone Pat Angerer will be a free agent this March.

My Comment: This is the same selection Walt had two weeks ago. Booooooooooooring! Also, Walt has the Colts passing on Fresno State wide receiver Davante Adams, a guy who, at 6'2, ran a 4.56 40 at the Combine.

Victor Hampton, CB, South Carolina

Reason:

While the Colts continue negotiations with CB Vontae Davis, there is still a need for future talent (with starting potential) to be added in the secondary. The appeal of Hampton with this selection is versatility. Hampton can slide in at corner, but ultimately might be more effective at safety. Hampton would provide the Colts with a solid DB in run support, but the biggest worry will be if an NFL team can help him control his emotions, which have gotten the better of him at times throughout his career.

My Comment: Finally! Some variety. No offense to Borland, but I'm kind of sick of seeing his name associated with the Colts. This is a deep draft for corners, which is why, in my humble opinion, the Colts do not need to re-sign Vontae Davis. A player like Hampton or Nebraska's Stanley Jean-Baptiste intrigue me more than an inside backer.

Chris Burke, SI.com

Chris Borland, ILB, Wisconsin

Reason: None given.

My Comment: Just when I cheer for variety, we're back to Bortland again. At least Burke didn't have the Colts passing up Adams for him. I'll give him that.
