The Indianapolis Colts regressed in 2019 during Frank Reich’s second season at the helm. After making the playoffs in 2018, Indy finished with a 7-9 record. The sudden retirement of Andrew Luck and the promotion of Jacoby Brissett didn’t really gel.
The Colts still have a great young core of players on offense and defense so they can potentially rebound quickly with the right moves.
Today, I will go through all seven rounds of a mock draft to see if I can make them a better team. I will use my own big board, with User-Votes team needs, and the difficulty setting at the draft simulator site Fanspeak. And thanks to Fanspeak Premium, I can make a few trades to get those extra picks. If you haven’t already, do yourself a favor and subscribe to Fanspeak Premium today!
Round 1/Pick 13
The Pick: Jordan Love, QB, Utah State
First off, I believe this is too high to take Love. However, it may be the best opportunity Indy has to get a franchise level QB. If the Colts are getting 2018 Jordan Love this is a huge win. If not, then they may have to try this again in a year or two.
Round 2/Pick 34
The Pick: Jordan Elliott, DL, Missouri
Elliott is a quick-handed interior pass rusher that can elevate the middle of the Colts defense. He would be an immediate upgrade.
Round 2/Pick 44
The Pick: Josh Jones, OT, Houston
With the pending free agency of Anthony Castonzo, the Colts may need to address this sooner. However, after an excellent week at the Senior Bowl. Jones is a long and athletic tackle who could start right away for Indianapolis.
Round 3/Pick 75
The Pick: Yetur Gross-Matos, EDGE, Penn State
Gross-Matos gives Indy another young pass rusher. My only issue with YGM has been his long lulls in games of little to no impact.
Philadelphia acquires pick 4-16 to select A.J. Green, CB, Oklahoma State. Colts acquire picks 4-137 and 4-146 to move back
Round 4/Pick 140
The Pick: Isaiah Hodgins, WR, Oregon State
Hodgins would give the Colts a big target at wide receiver and help them in the red zone.
THE REST OF THE PICKS:
4/146: Jake Hanson, C, Oregon
5/160: Davion Taylor, LB, Colorado
6/193: Kekoa Nawahine, S, Boise State
7/227: Solomon Kindley, G, Georgia
