Latest Bleacher Report Mock Draft (7 rounds)


Mock Draft

Synopsis:

2nd - Ra'Shede Hageman (DT Minn)

3rd - Dion Bailey (FS - USC)

5th - Shayne Skov (ILB - Standfordz)

6th - Dezmen Southward (SS - Wisconsin)

7th - David Fluellen (RB - Toledo)

I don't know how I feel about this draft for the Colts. I mean Ra'Shede Hageman (2nd) is a beast, and has the opportunity with some coaching to become a real beast on a line. So, I really like that pick, but after that point I didn't see too much that I liked. Dion Bailey(3rd) lacks what the range I would like to see for a FS to be an over the top defender, but I suppose with the "interchangeability" Pagano likes to promote, he would fit our scheme. Shayne Skov(5th) has a good chance to become a solid defender, but I don't see the upside considering we have a lot of depth in the LB rotation, both inside and outside.. Dezmen Southward (6th) fits much of the same role as Bailey, but with a clear drop in ability, upside, and even worse range. Finally, David Fluellen (7th) I think brings the same thing to the table that we already have. He lacks speed, and isn't the change of pace back we need. Additionally, he has an injury history.

Not sure what you guys think, but I would be highly disappointed in this in this draft. We address the safety position, but fail to get anyone that has the opportunity to be a true over-the-top FS. I think Bailey could be a good Landry replacement, and with Howell there, it would be a solid position. My biggest gripe though was the lack of CB addressing. It is definitely an issue, and more importantly needs to be addressed.
