You can’t say the Indianapolis Colts’ offseason hasn’t been uneventful. First, they cut bait on quarterback Carson Wentz and moved him to the Washington Commanders. Then, after Matt Ryan‘s situation in Atlanta became untenable, they swooped in and traded for him.
The Colts currently have seven draft picks this year. Their first-round pick belongs to the Philadelphia Eagles after the regrettable trade for Wentz.
Let’s see how it plays out.
INDIANAPOLIS COLTS: 7-ROUND MOCK DRAFT
2-42: Christian Watson, WR, North Dakota State
Get some speed at wide receiver. Get more athletic. Well, Watson is in the 99th percentile of athletes at the position since 1987. He is fast and electric. Watson showed off smooth route running at the Senior Bowl. Pairing him with Michael Pittman Jr. will pay instant dividends for new QB, Matt Ryan.
3-73: Akayleb Evans, CB, Missouri
The Colts need to get better at corner. Evans has lockdown potential but still needs to be brought along. You can’t teach his size, length, and speed.
4-122: Erik Ezukanma, WR, Texas Tech
Ezukanma has been emerging up the wide receiver ranks recently. The Texas Tech product has had consistent production over the last three seasons. Pairing with Watson, Pittman, and Parris Campbell could give the Colts’ new passer a new lease on life.
THE REST OF THE DRAFT
5-159: Bailey Zappe, QB, Western Kentucky
5-179: Thomas Booker, DL, Stanford
6-216: Bill Dunkle, G, San Diego State
7-239: Myron Cunningham, OT, Arkansas
