Draft day hops

My newest mock ideas for the Colts. For some reason I can't add youtube so click on names for highlights.

2nd round: Bashaud Breeland, CB 5'11/197

Good press cover db. Does a good job of jamming and rerouting WR at the line of scrimmage. Has decent speed for recovery but sometimes do not turn head to locate the ball. Has a high motor and do not take plays off and can help out in the run defense.

Where he fits with Colts: He can come in and see some playing time at 2 if Toler goes down.

3rd round: Antonio Richardson, OT 6'5/336

Played both power and zone blocking schemes in college. Decent motor when motivated and agile for his size. He is very strong and can get to the second level. He does need some coaching up on technique and footwork.

Where he fits with the Colts: He can refine his technique and replace Cherilus in 2016 season when his cap jumps to 7 mil/ only 4 mil in dead money if we cut him.

5th round: Telvin Smith, ILB 6'3/218

Great in coverage and in space. He is built like a strong safety and there are comparisons between him and Kam Chancellor. He can add weight to his frame. Does struggle to get low against ball carrier and I have seen him get over powered by some rbs. He does wrap up and seems to have a nose for the ball.

Where he fits with the Colts: He can get playing time this year seeing that Jackson is up in age. He can potentially start beside Freeman.

6th Marqueston Huff, S or CB 5'11/196

Its crazy to think we could get a starting safety in the 6th round but history repeats itself we can(AB was a 6th rounder also). Marqueston has great speed and shown the ability to cover all sizes. His hands are small and he can be a liability when it comes to tackling. His ball skills and instincts will make up for the areas he falls short in.

Where he fits with the Colts: He can push Howell for that starting FS spot. He also can play some cb.

7th Charles Sawyers, CB or S 5'10/188

Small wiry competitor that will excel in the nickle or dime.Great tackler and he high points the ball as if he is a WR. He does lack height and can be over powered. He isn't built to play on the outside so he is a specialist on defense and we will have to prepare packages to not expose him.
Where he fits with the Colts:He can play many position in the back field and can be used similar to the honey badger.

7th Damien Williams, RB 5'11/222

He is a rare combo of muscles and speed. Once he reaches the second level he is very hard to catch. He has nice hands but can be suspect in pass protection. He doesn't have the best vision but he hits the assigned gap full speed. His catching, speed and versatility makes him dangerous. If Dri Archer is a poor man DAT than Williams is a poor man Dri Archer.

Where he fits with the Colts: Change of pace back, would be interesting to have him and T-Rich in back field at same time. He can be fresh legs for our running attack late in games
