LuckAtLuke Final Colts Mock Draft

3 of 3

21. Cincinnati Bengals

Florida. D.J. Humphries. 21. player. 56. The 6’5, 307 pound Humphries plays with a mean streak and possesses rare athleticism for a big man of his size. The Bengals could use help along their offensive line, and Humphries can start right away. He’ll provide the long-term successor to veteran Andrew Whitworth at left tackle, but in the mean time, can open up holes immediately for Jeremy Hill in what figures to be a strong Bengals ground game.. Offensive Tackle

22. Pittsburgh Steelers

55. Johnson may not be the most physically gifted cornerback in this year’s draft class, but he’s one of the best. He’s a natural in man coverage and plays with exceptional athleticism and competitiveness. He’ll be a welcome addition to the Steelers secondary here and the anointed successor to longtime cornerback Ike Taylor (retired) from the get-go.. Cornerback. Wake Forest. Kevin Johnson. 22. player

23. Detroit Lions

Safety. Alabama. Landon Collins. 23. player. 50. With all of the top offensive lineman off the board, the Lions take the best player available to upgrade their secondary in Alabama’s Landon Collins. The hard hitting safety can replace James Ihedigbo for the long-term and provide the Lions with a playmaking safety in their secondary.

24. Arizona Cardinals

Wisconsin. Melvin Gordon. 24. player. 32. While they may have been hoping for Gurley, the Arizona Cardinals take the next best running back in this year’s draft class in Melvin Gordon. Coming off a historically great season for the Badgers, Gordon provides the Cardinals with a presence at the running back position and should push incumbent starter Andre Ellington for carries right away.. Running Back

25. Carolina Panthers

Pittsburgh. T.J. Clemmings. 25. player. 87. The Carolina Panthers desperately need upgrades along their offensive line, and while Clemmings is a bit raw, he has the potential to be a great offensive tackle in time. The former converted defensive lineman plays with a mean streak, but has shown the elite athleticism necessary to make a successful transition. He can start right away and help to keep Cam Newton upright.. Offensive Tackle

26. Baltimore Ravens

Marcus Peters. 26. player. 26. The Baltimore Ravens have gambled on talented, yet troubled players off the field before and found significant success, just recently with their top cornerback in Jimmy Smith, who was a 2011 first round pick. Peters is arguably the most gifted cornerbacks in this year’s draft class, but has been hampered by maturity and off-the-field issues. The Ravens roll the dice here on Peters talent and hope that he becomes a shutdown cornerback for them in the near future.. Cornerback. Washington

27. Dallas Cowboys

123. Never one to shy away from top talent, the Cowboys take a chance on Nebraska’s Randy Gregory, who’s one of the most talented pass rushers in this year’s draft class albeit with off-the-field baggage. The Cowboys know they’ll be without Greg Hardy for 10 games as he serves his 10 game suspension, and Gregory can make an impact right away. Perhaps, he’ll follow in DeMarcus Ware’s footsteps and become the next great Cowboys sackmaster.. Defensive End. Nebraska. Randy Gregory. 27. player

28. Denver Broncos

player. 45. The Denver Broncos know the key to their success is protecting Peyton Manning and could use some upgrades along their offensive line with Ryan Clady and Louis Vasquez as the only bonafide starting caliber offensive lineman. As a former high school tight end standout, Fisher is an elite level athlete and has shown great footwork for the tackle position. He’s also the best zone blocking tackle in this year’s draft and should fit in nicely in head coach Gary Kubiak’s freshly implemented offensive scheme.. Offensive Tackle. Oregon. Jake Fisher. 28

29. Indianapolis Colts

46. The Indianapolis Colts have some significant holes on the defensive side of the football. With no premier defensive lineman falling, the Colts elect to go with the best coverage safety in this year’s draft in Damarious Randall. With the 34 years old Mike Adams and recently signed Dwight Lowery as projected starters, the team has to get younger there and Randall provides a long-term answer at the position. He should start right away next to Adams, while relegating Lowery to a 3rd safety role. Randall hopefully becomes the Colts version of Devin McCourty as a tremendous ball-hawking safety in coverage.. Safety. Arizona State. Damarious Randall. 29. player

30. Green Bay Packers

49. The Packers could use a natural inside linebacker, as Clay Matthews played out of position there last season. Perryman is an “old school” linebacker in the middle and brings it every game with a little extra anger to his hard-hitting game. It allows Matthews to wreak havor as a pass rusher back on the outside, and Perryman has shown he can make plays in the middle of the field for the Pack.. Linebacker. Miami (Fla.). Denzel Perryman. 30. player

31. New Orleans Saints (via Seattle Seahawks)

15. Whether it’s at safety or cornerback, Rowe figures to help the back of the Saints secondary. He’s one of the best defensive backs in coverage in this year’s NFL Draft and should upgrade a Saints pass defense that allowed the 8th most passing yards per game.. Cornerback. Utah. Eric Rowe. 31. player

32. New England Patriots

Florida State. Eddie Goldman. 32. player. 47. The Patriots lost longtime nose tackle Vince Wilfork to the Texans in free agency, and Goldman is perhaps the best run stuffing nose tackle in this year’s NFL Draft. He’ll be able to start right away for the defending champions and provide an interior presence in the middle of their defense. While Goldman has some big shoes to fill, he has the type of size and strength to adequately fill them in time and should make an impact immediately.. Defensive Tackle
