Who The Hell Will They Draft? Colts 2012 Edition

Players evaluated:

Name Position Height Weight School Quick Hit
Frank Alexander OLB 6'4" 255 Oklahoma
Antonio Allen SS 6'2" 202 South Carolina Four year player that played the 'spur' position in college, which was a hybrid SS/LB. Tough-nosed guy who will be available in later rounds.
Jeff Allen G 6'5" 315 Illinois
Mark Asper G 6'7" 325 Oregon
Mark Barron SS 6'2" 218 Alabama
Dwight Bentley CB 5'11" 179 Louisiana-Lafayette
Jake Bequette DE 6'5" 271 Arkansas
R J Blanton CB 6'1" 200 Notre Dame Played in multiple coverage types at ND, mostly zone the last two years. Played all four years and is a sure tackler.
Omar Bolden CB 5'11" 195 Arizona St Confident man corner who had a productive career, but hasn't played since 2010 because of ACL injury. Fully healed now but potentially concerning.
Brandon Boykin CB 5'10" 183 Georgia A do-it-all player that refused to say no to anything asked of him. Could be special teams ace early in career.
Jarrett Boykin WR 6'2" 218 Virginia Tech A big receiver who isn't very flashy, but put up decent numbers in a pass-deficient offense. Won't blow by anyone but could be a decent guy later in the draft.
Andre Branch OLB 6'5" 260 Clemson
Michael Brewster C 6'5" 305 Ohio St
Vontaze Burfict ILB 6'3" 250 Arizona St
Miles Burris OLB 6'3" 235 San Diego St
Sean Cattouse SS 6'3" 218 California A converted corner, so he's well versed in man coverage, which is a big positive when his primary job will be to cover big, athletic Tight Ends. Later round project.
Josh Chapman NT 6'1" 310 Alabama Big, beefy NT with experience playing in the 3-4. Unsung hero of one of the most dominating defenses in recent memory. Played most of last season with torn ACL.
Audie Cole ILB 6'5" 239 North Carolina St A tackling machines, leading his team in tackles his last three seasons. Doesn't fit mold of a 3-4 LB, but most likely would move inside, where he played as a senior.
Fletcher Cox DE 6'4" 295 Mississippi St An early entry, three year starter, can play anywhere on the defensive line. First team all-SEC last season.
Jared Crick DE 6'6" 285 Nebraska
B J Cunningham WR 6'2" 215 Michigan St A big receiver with strong hands who lacks elite speed. Extremely productive in college, but a late round prospect.
Vinny Curry OLB 6'4" 263 Marshall
DeMario Davis OLB 6'3" 230 Arkansas St
Alfonzo Dennard CB 5'10" 205 Nebraska Small, feisty, physical corner who was Big Ten DB of the Year last year. Ideal body type for slot coverage. Possible 2nd round pick.
Loni Fangupo NT 6'1" 330 Brigham Young
Darius Fleming OLB 6'2" 255 Notre Dame
Jamell Fleming CB 5'11" 191 Oklahoma
Michael Floyd WR 6'3" 224 Notre Dame One of the best WR in this draft, could fall into late first round/early second because of red flags off the field. Beast on the field.
Jeff Fuller WR 6'4" 220 Texas A&M Big WR whose production really fell off as a senior. Good in the red zone, but will have to rectify lots of drops.
Chris Galippo ILB 6'2" 250 Southern California
Stephon Gilmore CB 6'1" 193 South Carolina Started every game of his college career, loves to blitz out of the slot position, but possesses the kind of speed you need to play on the outside.
Cordy Glenn G 6'5" 348 Georgia
Robert Griffin QB 6'2" 220 Baylor Heisman Trophy winning dynamic QB who can sling it with the best of them, and blow by on-rushers. Will go in top 2 picks.
Winston Guy SS 6'1" 216 Kentucky
Mike Harris CB 5'11" 195 Florida St JUCO transfer that isn't afraid to tackle, but doesn't have elite speed and is a smaller corner. Could be a nickel CB drafted in the later rounds.
Duke Ihenacho SS 6'1" 205 San Jose St
George Iloka SS 6'3" 216 Boise St
Bruce Irvin OLB 6'3" 245 West Virginia
Ace Jackson CB 5'10" 188 Cal Poly St A raw talent in a deep small-school class at CB, needs some work playing closer to receivers. Excellent punt returner and special teams player.
Alshon Jeffery WR 6'4" 229 South Carolina
A J Jenkins WR 6'0" 190 Illinois
James-Michael Johnson ILB 6'2" 240 Nevada Four year player that moved inside his senior season. Very good against the run, not so much against the pass. Good project player.
Leonard Johnson CB 5'10" 202 Iowa St
Trumaine Johnson CB 6'2" 204 Montana One of the best small school CBs in this draft, has great size, and was a starter all four years. Potential first round talent that should be there in 2nd round.
Ben Jones C 6'3" 316 Georgia
J J Jones CB 5'10" 194 Wayne St-Mi
Senio Kelemete G 6'4" 301 Washington
Mychal Kendricks ILB 6'0" 240 California
Ronnell Lewis OLB 6'2" 244 Oklahoma Lewis played out of position at OU, but is the stereotypical 3-4 OLB. Had some academic issues, which was the reason he came out early.
Brandon Lindsey OLB 6'2" 250 Pittsburgh
Joe Looney G 6'3" 320 Wake Forest
Andrew Luck QB 6'4" 235 Stanford
Keshawn Martin WR 5'11" 189 Michigan St Shifty receiver that could play outside or in the slot. Dynamic punt returner who stepped up in the Spartans' biggest games.
Marquis Maze WR 5'10" 182 Alabama Short, quick receiver that can play either in the slot or on the outside, as well as return punts and kicks. Later round pick.
Shea McClellin OLB 6'3" 258 Boise St A versatile Defensive Lineman who can also stand up and play Outside Linebacker in the 3-4. Knows how to rush the passer, and it slotted in the 4th-6th round range.
Kelcie McCray SS 6'2" 195 Arkansas St
Marvin McNutt WR 6'4" 215 Iowa
De'Quan Menzie CB 6'0" 198 Alabama
Chase Minnifield CB 6'0" 185 Virginia
Charles Mitchell SS 5'11" 205 Mississippi St
Luke Nix G 6'6" 310 Pittsburgh
Chris Owusu WR 6'2" 200 Stanford
Micah Pellerin CB 6'1" 195 Hampton
Nick Perry OLB 6'3" 250 Southern California
Dontari Poe NT 6'5" 350 Memphis
Chaz Powell CB 6'1" 206 Penn St
Brian Quick WR 6'3" 215 Appalachian St A physical former basketball player and high-jumper with exceptional hands, but is inexperienced and has trouble separating from CBs.
Kendall Reyes DE 6'4" 295 Connecticut
Sean Richardson SS 6'2" 220 Vanderbilt
Travian Robertson DE 6'4" 303 South Carolina
Josh Robinson CB 5'10" 192 Central Florida Fastest guy at the Combine, can close on any receiver, but has a tendency to jump routes when in man-press coverage.
Brett Roy OLB 6'4" 280 Nevada
Mohamed Sanu WR 6'2" 215 Rutgers Another big WR who won't blow by guys, but caught a lot of passes in college and could be very effective in Red Zone. Compared to Hakeem Nicks.
Coty Sensabaugh CB 6'0" 185 Clemson
Amini Silatolu G 6'3" 324 Midwestern St
Harrison Smith SS 6'2" 214 Notre Dame
Devon Still DE 6'5" 310 Penn St Polished, NFL-ready DT that could start Week 1. Eats up space in the middle, but might be gone before the Colts pick in Round 2.
J R Sweezy DE 6'5" 293 North Carolina St Compared with J.J. Watt, but not quite the same talent level. Good fit as a 3-4 DE, although he played 4-3 DT for NCSU. Had a few off-the-field issues that'll need investigating.
Alameda Ta'Amu NT 6'3" 337 Washington
Brandon Thompson NT 6'2" 310 Clemson
Nick Toon WR 6'3" 220 Wisconsin One of the many big WR in this draft whose dad was taken 10th overall back in 1985. Probably 2nd/3rd round.
Bobby Wagner ILB 6'1" 232 Utah St
Billy Winn DE 6'4" 295 Boise St
Derek Wolfe DE 6'5" 300 Cincinnati Prototypical 3-4 DE, has an endless motor. Big East Defensive Player of the year, and was 5th nationally in tackles for loss in 2011.
Kendall Wright WR 5'10" 190 Baylor
Kevin Zeitler G 6'4" 315 Wisconsin Great pedigree with the Badgers, and a rare Guard that could go in Round 1. Named Coaches All-American and First Team All-Big Ten last season.
