A mock draft from my buddy Brian Galliford at SB Nation:

22. Indianapolis Colts: Derek Sherrod, OT, Mississippi State. The run on tackles continues, and Sherrod quietly had one of the better weeks for a blocker in Mobile, showing more power than many believed he had. His athleticism and quick feet make him a natural fit on the left side in Indy's pass-happy offense.

Anthony Castonzo and Nate Solder are both taken with picks #19 and #21, respectively. This left Tryon Smith, Gabe Carimi, and Sherrod out there. Brian says the Colts go Sherrod.

Seriously, if the Colts walk out of the first round with any sort of offensive lineman, I'm a happy boy.
