|The name of the game for Indianapolis' draft was getting good football players. After the Polian era, they don't have many left on the roster. The Colts drafted seven guys and they all can play.
The draft grader believes Robert Griffin III is a better quarterback prospect than Luck, but the difference is too negligible to dock Indianapolis' draft grade. Luck projects as a franchise quarterback, and the Colts seem to have determined that he's more ready to play than RG3.
Hosley is a top-50 talent in this draft, and Ta'amu will be a day-one starter at nose tackle. They are both value picks. McNutt is a straight-line receiver with size, but buildup speed. He was still well worth a pick after the midpoint of round four. Pierce lacks burst, but is a one-cut runner and the Colts will likely use plenty of zone-blocking concepts under Bruce Arians. Bradham was great value in the fifth. Rodriguez can cover kicks on special teams, and Harris holds his own in the slot.
The Colts improved in this draft, although adding a better receiver than McNutt would have been preferable, and the roster still has plenty of holes. With a B+ grade, though, it's a nice first step.
|1.01||1||Andrew Luck, QB|
|2.07||39||Alameda Ta'amu, DT|
|True NT's are hard to find and Alameda will be the first piece of Chuck Paganos defense.|
|3.01||65||Jayron Hosley, CB|
from Virginia Tech
|Versatile ballhawk who will play opposite of Powers. He is also a very dangerous return man something we've been trying to find for years now.|
|4.22||117||Marvin McNutt, WR|
|A big target for Andrew Luck and someone to go opposite of Reggie.|
|4.29||124||Bernard Pierce, RB|
|With Joseph Addai gone and Donald Browns unimpressive career so far. Your pretty much left with Delone Carter who had a fumbling issue last year. Bernard gives the Colts another running back with power and speed.|
|5.01||128||Nigel Bradham, OLB|
from Florida St.
|With Gary Brackett and Phillip Wheeler no longer on the team. Were in need of some Linebackers especially when switching over to the 3-4. I think Nigel has the physical tools to play OLB or ILB. Pagano will put him to good use.|
|6.01||160||Evan Rodriguez, TE|
|With Clark and Tamme gone, Mackey award Candidate just makes perfect sense right here. Smart football player that can line up all over the place. Smooth runner aswell as a good blocker.|
|7.01||191||Mike Harris, CB|
from Florida St.
|With my last pick I'm taking a playmaker. Mike Harris is just that at corner and probably FS in the NFL.|
