It’s much more realistic than a lot of the national ones as most insiders and analysts on a national level tend to sleep on the Colts. The whole point of this mock draft is to get the fan base involved and see who you guys would like to see the Colts draft in different situations, plus providing some trades and realistic scenarios. This draft will cover the Colts’ first four picks. Please shares your thoughts, picks and preferences in the comments and I’ll choose the one that I think makes the most sense.Note: The original draft has been slightly altered due to Combine production<hr class="p-entry-hr" id="TuVXwC"> Mock Draft1. * Cincinnati BengalsKyler Murray QBCincinnati trades 2019 1st, 2nd and 4th2020 1stCordy Glenn OTFORArizona Cardinals 1st round pickCincinnati hit the refresh button and gains a ton of cap.

The draft could very well shake out like this, being very defensively skewed. If it were to play out this way, the Colts could find themselves picking and the best Defensive Line prospect would be Jerry Tillery, who I have a second round grade on. However, the positive of having many teams go a specific route causes other talented players to slide, and that’s why I think they stay put. I understand the argument that could be made for TJ Hockenson, but I’m going to go with Byron Murphy. I like his length and athleticism, but what makes him my number 2 CB in the draft are his instincts and anticipation. The ability to understand routes and keep track of the QB as plays develop is something that truly cannot be taught. I think it would be a blessing that he slid this far, but I wouldn’t be surprised if it were to happen. He didn’t wow anyone at the combine, and his 4.55 40-dash was pretty pedestrian compared to some of the other CB. However, during the game drills he was fantastic and what I saw mainly were great hands and very fluid hips. I think Murphy will be the 3rd corner picked in the draft around the late-teens to mid-twenties. Most teams in that range I think will take either DL or OL, but the Steelers will definitely take someone for their secondary. In this mock Deandre Baker fell to them, but that might not be the case come draft time. If Murphy makes it past Pitt, I think he’ll be there for the Colts. Who would you stay away from at this pick?Josh Jacobs, hands down. Anything you would want out of the backfield we already have in house right now. I’ve watched some of the limited tape he has, and the first thing that comes to mind is Sony Michel. They are similar in height, 5’10’’ to 5’11’’, and weight, 215 pounds to 216 pounds. They have playing styles that are alike, utilizing lateral quickness and speed to avoid defenders and the speed to beat them to the edge. Finally, their junior year stats are very similar in YPC (5.3 to 5.5) and YPR (12.4 to 10.7), it’s just that Sony Mithel had a larger workload.Jacobs declined to participate in the combine due to a groin injury, and maybe the fact that he is the de facto RB1 in this draft. I do think he is one of the better players left, and while BPA is an important strategy, like everything, it’s not perfect. My personal preference for drafting, at least in the first few rounds, is having a list of positions you are weak at and doing BPA for the pool of players in those positions. If Kyler Murray is available at #26 you don’t take him, even though he would be the best player, because you are set at that position, same thing goes for Josh Jacobs. Thoughts on the whole QB situations?So the whole “Murray will go number one” buzz picked up pretty hard the last couple of days or so, and I was starting to believe it until I listened to Rich Einstein’s show where he said that sources tell him the Cardinals are letting Rosen know that he is “their guy”. This is further re-iterated by the fact that low level scouts for the Cardinals, who should have no access to this type of information, seem to be spreading rumors like wild fire, which tends to signal that this is a smoke screen. I still think that the Cardinals take Murray. However, if they don’t, things are going to get interesting. Murray and Haskins are the only QBs I’d honestly give a 1st round grade to, but someone is going to reach for Lock. So to bring it all together, I think that Murray goes No. 1 overall, no matter who holds the pick. Then someone is going to trade up for Haskins in the top 5 and finally I think good ol’ Elway realizes that getting old QBs doesn’t tend to work (except if it’s Manning), so he gives the draft one last try and gets the Midwestern guy with the big arm after trading up.*Fun fact, in the last 3 drafts, every QB, except one, that was selected in the first round was chosen by a team that traded up to get him. Exception: Baker Mayfield (and he was the number one overall pick)Who do you think is a player that teams will reach for?I was going to go with Jaylen Ferguson here, just because I think he is this years Marcus Davenport (a developmental small school prospect), but to be brutally honest , I think Rashan Gary is a much bigger reach mainly due to the fact that he hasn’t really done much at the collegiate level and people have him as one of the best player in the draft.He was the number one player coming out of high school, but I think Michigan should have played him in the interior instead of putting him out wide and that hurt his production. Explosiveness clearly isn’t a problem as he had a 40-dash of 4.58, a Vert of 38 inches (!) and a Broad jump of 10’. He also measured in at 6’4’’ and 277 pounds, so he has the size to play the 3-tech. Most mocks have him going #4 to the Raiders, making a formidable interior with Maurice Hurst. I honestly think that the Jaguars makes a lot more sense just because they got some aging bodies on the interior and rumors are that they have already secured Nick Foles, so QB is no longer a worry. <hr class="p-entry-hr" id="Sg3Vzn">Again, thanks to Mr. Too Proud for the mock and I’ll continue this series for the Colts next 3 picks. Please comment what the picks from 27-33 should be and I’ll either pick one specific comment or mix and match a couple of them. INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Indianapolis Colts coach Frank Reich has seen the numbers and watched the tape.He’s not the least bit concerned about the Colts’ defense.Instead, Reich draws on his NFL experiences to provide perspective and motivation for a group of players who could use a boost right now.Article continues below ...“When it’s going bad, when you feel it’s going bad as an individual player or as a unit or as a team, it’s not as bad as you think,” Reich said. “I experienced that as a player, I’ve experienced that as a coach. I’ve experienced that individually, as a unit and as a team. So you’ve got to — as they say — keep chopping. You never know when you’re about to break through.”The numbers don’t lie.Indy’s defense heads into Sunday’s game against Oakland (1-2) ranked in the bottom half of the league in yards rushing, yards passing and total yards allowed. Only six teams have fewer takeaways than the Colts’ three and last week Indianapolis allowed the Falcons to convert eight of 10 third downs.Again, the Colts (2-1) won’t be at full strength. Starting safety Malik Hooker could miss more than a month with an injured knee, All-Pro linebacker Darius Leonard was still in the concussion protocol this week, and after No. 1 cornerback Pierre Desir fought his way back from a bruised knee last week, he’s now dealing with an injured hamstring.The Raiders pose an intriguing matchup. While their offense has struggled through the first three weeks, Indy can put on the tape from last year’s 42-28 shootout and see just how dangerous Oakland can be.Or theColts can listen to coach Jon Gruden giving his team a similar message about getting back on track.“I’m not going to sit here and say that we are a finished product yet,” Gruden said. “We’ve gone through a lot of change through the first three weeks and we played two really good teams, actually three really good defenses.”And the Colts think they can make it four good defenses in a row.“Just keep believing, keep trusting and keep working, the breakthrough is just around the corner,” Reich said. “That’s our mentality.”TRAVELING SHOWThe Raiders will go straight from Indianapolis to London, where they will spend the week practicing before a “home” game against Chicago. Oakland is in the midst of a stretch that features 48 days between games at the Oakland Coliseum, with four road games, one off week, and the trip to London. This week marks the second of five straight games that start at 10 a.m. PT. Oakland has lost seven straight in the early Sunday time slot.“It’s an odd travel schedule I guess,” tight end Darren Waller said. “But I feel like we have the guys to lock in and get it done.”HOME, SWEET, HOMEAfter losing their first two home games last season, the Colts have reeled off seven straight wins, the second-longest active streak behind New England (15).Indy also has scored at least 23 points in nine consecutive home games, tied for the league’s third-longest streak with the Los Angeles Rams and behind New England (13) and Kansas City (12). There’s little doubt among the players the noise and atmosphere have helped.“You felt the energy coming into the stadium and they played a big part in a tough game,” Colts quarterback Jacoby Brissett said after last week’s game. “I think they were one of the biggest difference makers in the game because it’s so hard.”RECEIVER SHUFFLEThe Raiders are still looking for the right receiver combination after Antonio Brown was released two days before the season opener. That move forced Tyrell Williams into a bigger role, and another free agent receiver, Ryan Grant, didn’t work out. The former Indy player was benched last week and released Wednesday.“It’s caused us a little bit of rethinking,” Gruden said about the loss of Brown. “When you lose your starting (flanker), who arguably is a great player — I don’t think anyone is going to dispute that — you have to replace him, and we’re making an effort to move Tyrell around, bringing on some younger guys.”MACK ATTTACKAfter being stout against the run the first two weeks, allowing 63 yards a game and 2.8 yards per carry, the Raiders gave up 211 yards last week to Minnesota. The Raiders face another strong test this week against Marlon Mack , the league’s No. 3 rusher, and a Colts team averaging 4.9 yards per carry. Mack ran 16 times for 74 yards and one TD last week, but gashed the Raiders last year for 132 yards and two scores.
