I'm supposed to be studying for finals, so, naturally, I get bored and decide to write up a mock draft on SB from my phone.
Now, I've watched some tape but I'm not a crazy draft expert. Nonetheless, I feel like I've assembled enough information to put together a decent mock draft.
anyways, enough chit chat, let's get right to it:
Round 2: Terrence Brooks, FS, Florida St.
I actually recently said I would give Deone Bucannon the slight edge in a thread, but changed my mind here. Brooks has nice instincts in coverage and though, his tackling is somewhat concerning, I am hoping he can improve with coaching. Besides, the Colts are desperate for a safety that possesses good coverage skills.
Other options I like: S Deone Bucannon, OLB Marcus Smith
Round 3: DaQuan Jones, NT, Penn St.
This was a toughie for me. I really want to improve our front 7 even further, as I strongly believe that it is the key to success in the NFL on the defensive side of the ball. And, even though I like a few corner prospects here, I decided to go that route by taking Jones. I've heard great things about him and having a good nose tackle is key to a 3-4 defense.
other options: CB Stanley Jean-Baptiste, CB Jaylen Watkins
Round 5: Bryan Stork, C, Florida St.
Simply put, the Colts could use some help at the offensive line position. Stork anchored a national championship winning offensive line and hopefully he can continue that winning trend in Indianapolis.
other options: CB Walt Aikens
Round 6: Michael Sam, DE/OLB, Missouri
Adding a pass rusher in the draft is a must, and Sam seems to be good value here. He was the SEC defensive player of the year and a consensus All-American, which all sounds dandy to me. I wouldn't mind Morgan Breslin here either.
other options: OLB Morgan Breslin, OG Zach Fulton
Round 7: Cody Hoffman, WR, BYU
Hands, hands, hands. I love a receiver with great hands and that's what Hoffman has. Unfortunately I love route running as well and I was not very impressed by that aspect of his game. Regardless, he's a 7th rounder so he's gonna have his flaws, and if he's gonna become a good route runner there's no one better to learn from than the master himself, Reggie Wayne.
other options: C Andrew Miller, CB Aaron Colvin
