The Colts addressed some major needs and picked up some draft capital early on in our mock draft. What would they do in rounds four and five?
You can find the Colts’ picks from the first three rounds of this mock draft in version 1.0 and 1.1 as Indianapolis addressed needs at guard, wide receiver, inside linebacker, and offensive tackle. With that in mind, and some extra picks from the Washington Redskins, here are the Colts’ picks for the fourth and fifth rounds of this mock draft.
Round 4: 100th Overall Pick
Cornerback was a major issue for the Colts in 2017, which is one of reasons why their pass defense struggled mightily.
Florida State’s Tarvarus McFadden is a big, physical cornerback who could be available in the fourth round. The 6′ 2″ defensive back had a bit of a disappointing season along with the rest of his Seminole teammates, but he has undeniable talent and has played at a high level during his college career.

The Colts need to add some depth along the offensive line in this draft, and Iowa’s Sean Welsh could provide that.
Welsh is most likely a guard at the NFL level, but he played center, guard, and tackle in college. That positional versatility could give Welsh some value as NFL teams normally only dress eight or nine offensive linemen on gameday.
Round 5: 131st Overall Pick
The Colts may be looking for a red zone wide receiver in this year’s draft if they let Donte Moncrief walk in free agency, and Iowa State’s Allen Lazard would be a perfect fit for that need.
The 6′ 5″ 222-pound receiver hauled in 26 touchdowns during his career with the Cyclones, including 10 TD’s during his senior season. Lazard could earn playing time right away during his rookie season, and Andrew Luck would find a way to get him the ball in the end zone early and often.
