With the calendar now turned to April, it is time for the NFL Draft. All the preparation and training for the prospects will all result in getting drafted in late-April and will fulfill their dream of making it to the NFL.
For the Indianapolis Colts, they currently have seven picks in this year’s draft. After trading their first-round pick for Deforest Buckner back in March, their first pick won’t be until the 34th overall pick, the second pick in the second round. The Colts also have two sixth-round picks and none in the seventh round.
With the draft fast approaching, I jumped on the Draft Network mock draft machine to go through the Colts’ 2020 draft. These are my results:
No. 34 (from WAS) | Jordan Love | QB | Utah State
I was lucky enough to have Love fall to me after he slipped by the Patriots and Saints, two teams that could take Love in the late first round. Everyone has heard about Love coming out—high ceiling and low floor. There is no question he has the talent to be a franchise quarterback, the question is can he land in the right place and make the most of it.
Love will be able to sit a year behind Philip Rivers and Jacoby Brissett and learn from those guys as well as Frank Reich as they look to improve his decision-making at the next level. With Rivers being a year-to-year decision, the Colts need to find the answer long-term and at 34 with Love on the board, he’s too hard to pass up.
Other players available at 34: WR Laviska Shenault Jr., Colorado | DT Ross Blacklock, TCU | OT Austin Jackson, USC
