Indianapolis Colts Mock Draft Roundup 3.0
Throughout the year and leading up to the 2021 NFL draft, we will update our Indianapolis Colts Mock Draft Roundup showing picks for the Indianapolis Colts from several prominent sites and draft analysts.
For a more inclusive lists of mock drafts for the Indianapolis Colts, check out our 2021 Indianapolis Colts Mock Draft Database.
The following are picks in recent mock drafts for the Colts:
EDSFootball - Hanson (1/1)
18. Rondale Moore, WR, Purdue
Not only are Philip Rivers and Jacoby Brissett scheduled to become free agents in 2021, but so is T.Y. Hilton. Moore is an electrifying playmaker with elite run-after-catch ability.
San Diego Union Tribune (12/31)
18. Justin Fields, QB, Ohio State
A matchup with the Jaguars on Sunday could be Philip Rivers final game. Fields' recent decision making has been concerning, especially when he's under duress, but there's so much talent to work with here. He was recently named a semifinalist for both the Maxwell Award (best player in college football) and the Davey O'Brien Award (nation's top quarterback).
Touchdown Wire - Schofield (12/31)
18. Samuel Cosmi, OT, Texas
The Indianapolis Colts could go in a number of directions with their first-round pick. They could address cornerback, they could add another offensive weapon or they could even look at quarterback. Whether they look at QB might hinge on how they feel about Philip Rivers and last year's quarterback selection, Jacob Eason.
Offensive tackle is another spot the Colts could address. Anthony Castonzo came back for another year but has dealt with an MCL injury suffered in Week 12, and his season ended this week as he faces ankle surgery. Given that, Samuel Cosmi is a good fit for their needs. The Texas tackle has the athleticism and foot speed to be solid in pass protection as well as to handle some of the zone blocking designs the Colts implement.
PFF - Gayle (12/29)
18. Christian Darrisaw, OT, Virginia Tech
Darrisaw is one of the bigger college football breakouts in 2020. A former three-star recruit out of Maryland, Darrisaw has improved his grade from 68.6 starting at left tackle in 2018 up to 95.6 playing the same position in 2020. The 6-foot-5, 350-pounder earned himself some money this season, for sure.
CBS Sports - Wilson (12/29)
18. Jaylen Waddle, WR, Alabama
T.Y. Hilton is in the final year of his contract and while Michael Pittman and Parris Campbell are young, promising players, there isn't much depth behind them. Waddle might be the most explosive playmaker in this class.
Pro Football Network - Miller (12/26)
18. Liam Eichenberg, OT, Notre Dame
Notre Dame pumping out another super solid lineman? We should not be surprised. His snap streak without allowing a sack is unbelievable. He made Pittsburgh's Patrick Jones look like just another guy out there, despite Jones garnering first-round consideration himself.
If there was more flash in his game, he might be a top-10 player. The Colts are the next team to benefit from teams drafting skill position players over offensive linemen in this draft.
PFF - Renner (12/23)
23. Rashod Bateman, WR, Minnesota
With T.Y. Hilton in the last year of his deal at 31 years old, his days as the unquestioned No. 1 in Indy look numbered. Bateman is in a similar mold to Michael Pittman Jr. in that they can beat you any which way you want at every level of the field. It would give Philip Rivers -- if he returns -- a receiving corps very reminiscent of what he had back with the Chargers.
Bleacher Report - Miller (12/22)
24. Jaelan Phillips, EDGE, Miami (FL)
A quarterback or left tackle of the future could be in play, but the board has fallen in a way that replacing the aging Justin Houston would be a better value pick for Chris Ballard's front office. Phillips dominated this year with an outside speed move that will give offensive tackles nightmares.
