NFL Mock Draft 2015: Eddie Goldman is the Consensus Pick for the Colts

New, comments

Mocking the Draft's Dan Kadar put out a mock draft this morning that is based on what 20 other mock drafts are saying, and he found that the consensus pick for the Colts was Florida State defensive tackle Eddie Goldman.

Mocking the Draft's Dan Kadar releases a new mock draft every Monday for several months leading up to the Draft, and so he does a number of different things with the mock drafts to keep them more interesting.  His latest mock draft is a great idea in which he takes a look at 20 different mock drafts from around the internet and then does the mock draft based on the consensus of those picks.

Here's what he had to say about the Colts:

29. Indianapolis Colts: Eddie Goldman, DT, Florida State

With a three-way tie and two of the choices being gone, Goldman is the default selection for the Colts. He can play over the nose for the Colts and fill a spot where they've struggled to find consistency since changing to a 3-4 defense.

The picks:
20 percent Cameron Erving 
20 percent Landon Collins 
20 percent Eddie Goldman 
10 percent Jordan Phillips 
5 percent Arik Armstead 
5 percent D.J. Humphries 
5 percent Eli Harold 
5 percent Ereck Flowers 
5 percent Malcom Brown 
5 percent T.J. Clemmings

Of the 20 mock drafts that Kadar looked at, there was a three-way tie for the most common pick to the Colts: Florida State center Cameron Erving, Alabama safety Landon Collins, and Florida State defensive tackle Eddie Goldman.  Both Erving and Collins were already gone in this mock draft, however (due to them being the top consensus pick for another team too) and that leaves Eddie Goldman to the Colts as the consensus.

This is a fun way to do a mock draft, and without a doubt Goldman would be a good pick by the Colts.  He would fill that nose tackle need that they have been looking for ever since Chuck Pagano brought the 3-4 defense to Indy, and he would provide a dominant force against the run - an area that Chuck Pagano called the team's "Achilles heel" earlier this offseason.  Goldman is a good player and would be a huge get for the Colts in the middle of the defensive line, and so in this case the consensus pick would be a great pick.

What are your thoughts on this mock draft?
