LuckAtLuke Final Colts Mock Draft

2 of 3

11. Minnesota Vikings

60. This pairing makes too much sense not to happen. Parker caught footballs from the Vikings franchise signal caller in Teddy Bridgewater at Louisville, and the team could use a big target on the outside to complement the recently acquired Mike Wallace. Parker has the talent and upside to be a #1 wideout for the Vikings in time and could set up the next great QB-WR duo. He’s a familiar face and will provide a great comfort zone for Bridgewater.. Wide Receiver. Louisville. DeVante Parker. 11. player

12. Cleveland Browns

The Cleveland Browns are going to have to be “smashmouth” if they want to win football games and getting Shelton at this spot would go a long way towards achieving that identity. The Browns were horrendous against the run last season and, Shelton is one of the best run stuffers in this year’s draft class. He looks to make at least a few Pro Bowls for the Browns and should be a favorite in the Dog Pound going forward.. Defensive Tackle. Washington. Danny Shelton. 12. player. 53

13. New Orleans Saints

Alvin Dupree. 13. player. 15. The Saints will be actively looking to draft one of the premier pass rushers in this year’s draft and will gladly take Alvin “Bud” Dupree here if he’s still available. Dupree had an incredible combine workout and showed enough production at Kentucky to be considered one of the best pass rushers in this year’s draft class. He’s an athletic freak, who should play quite well down in the Louisiana bayou.. Defensive End. Kentucky

14. Miami Dolphins

Georgia. Todd Gurley. 14. player. 59. The Miami Dolphins were hoping that Parker would fall, but they’ll take another potential offensive star in Georgia’s Todd Gurley. Considered by most as the best running back in this year’s draft class, Gurley can provide the Phins with an in-between-the-tackles, electrifying presence that the team hasn’t had since Ricky Williams dreads were flying freely in South Beach.. Running Back

15. San Francisco 49ers

15. player. 42. The 49ers could use an infusion of young talent along their defensive line after losing both Justin Smith and Ray McDonald this offseason. Armstead has the size and physical gifts to be dominant at the next level, but he has to consistently bring it every snap. Still, the 49ers will gladly take a defensive lineman of his athletic ability here and ask questions later.. Defensive End. Oregon. Arik Armstead

16. Houston Texans

Michigan State. Trae Waynes. 16. player. 10. The Texans take the best player available here and elect to go with the consensus best cornerback in this year’s draft in Michigan State’s Trae Waynes. While the team already has Kareem Jackson, the defense could use a long-term successor to veteran Jonathan Joseph, who’s starting to get a little long in the tooth at 31 years old. Waynes can help as the slot cornerback right away in helping to slow down Andrew Luck and the Colts in the division.. Cornerback

17. San Diego Chargers

The Chargers could go a lot of ways here, but Malcolm Brown is an incredibly versatile defensive lineman who can start right away for the Bolts defensive line. He’s a disruptor and penetrator, who should be able to make plays in opposing team’s backfields.. Defensive Tackle. Texas. Malcom Brown. 17. player. 13

18. Kansas City Chiefs

The Chiefs lost their star young center in Rodney Hudson to the Oakland Raiders in free agency, but make quick work in replacing him. Erving should be a starter from Day 1 and is the best center in this year’s draft class. He’ll help pave the way for Jamaal Charles and an always strong Chiefs running game.. Center. Florida State. Cameron Erving. 18. player. 124

19. Cleveland Browns (via Buffalo Bills)

53. The Browns are going to have to rely heavily on their ground game if they want to consistently win football games next season, and Collins is perhaps this year’s best mauler in run blocking. He plays with a mean streak and can start away for the Browns at either guard or tackle, giving them a strong presence along their offensive line.. Offensive Tackle. LSU. La'el Collins. 19. player

20. Philadelphia Eagles

UCF. Breshad Perriman. 20. player. 54. The Eagles have lost both DeSean Jackson and Jeremy Maclin in recent seasons on the outside, but gain a big and fast playmaker in Perriman. He has the size and speed to be a dynamic offensive weapon in Chip Kelly’s scheme and flashed solid hands at his pro day. The Eagles will need a vertical threat to keep opposing defenses honest defending DeMarco Murray and their running game and drafting the explosive Perriman would certainly help.. Wide Receiver
