It’ll be a gigantic surprise if the Colts don’t draft Stanford quarterback Andrew Luck with the No. 1 overall pick in the NFL draft in late April.
We shouldn’t forget that their second-round pick, 34th overall, isn’t far off where they’ve drafted a lot in the first round in recent years.
They should get a top-flight player leading off the second round, and Kevin Weidl of Scouts Inc. has written an interesting piece highlighting some of the possibilities.
Weidl knows some of these guys will go in the first round, but as he matches needs with prospects, he sees as possibilities: defensive tackle Dontari Poe of Memphis; defensive ends Nick Perry of USC and Andre Branch of Clemson; receivers Kendall Wright of Baylor, Michael Floyd of Notre Dame or Alshon Jeffery of South Carolina; Guard/tackle Cordy Glenn of Georgia.
Colts fans, I’d love if you read the piece and consider those names, the others he mentions and chime in with your thoughts below.
