A another new Mock Draft (because I screwed up the last one): 4/8/2008

New, comments

So, in my last Mock Draft I listed the Colts taking Jerod Mayo in the 6th round. Long story short, I pasted in the wrong name. It should have read Wesley Woodyard from Kentucky. My bad. However, what the error allows me to do is create a new Mock Draft.

Every time I look at Draft Tek's latest mock, I shake my head at the notion that both Chris Johnson and Matt Forte will be available, but the Colts pass on them for Purdue TE Dustin Keller? Now, Keller is intriguing, and I plan to do a profile on him, but to draft Keller over Johnson and Forte is utter stupidity.  I'd love Indy to get a good TE in the draft so Indy can return to a little more 2 TE, but give me a break! If Indy had Chris Johnson or Matt Forte, we'd see more 2 back than 2 TEs.

The other element of Draft Tek's recent mock is Georgia DE Marcus Thomas is there in round 3, and the Colts bypass him for RB Kevin Smith for Central Florida.

Um, WHAT?

What's funny is both DE Marcus Howard and Notre Dame TE John Carlson are available in round three of this mock, and it is utter insanity to assume the Colts would pass on both those guys, IMHO. Now, don't get me wrong, I love Draft Tek. But, this recent mock is a bit silly.

This Mock Draft is based on the premise that Marcus Howard is taken in the early third round:

  1. Chris Johnson, RB, East Carolina
  2. John Carlson, TE, Notre Dame
  3. Jack Williams, CB, Kent State
  4. Kory Lichtensteiger, OC, Bowling Green
  5. Rudolph Hardie, DE, Howard
  6. Titus Brown, DE, Mississippi State
  7. Kirk Barton, OT, Ohio State
  8. Carlton Powell, DT, Virginia Tech
  9. Jonathan Hefney, FS, Tennessee
