Justin Houston is only getting older and this is why the Colts need to get an edge defender for good value. At 194 Michael Danna from Michigan would be a good fit for the Colts to develop behind Houston. Danna can play run and pass but has a hard time staying consistent at both. 2018 was his best season as he had 30 run stops and 9 sacks with 36 quarterback hurries. But his lack of consistency is what will cause his draft stock to fall.
- Loves to bully offensive linemen
- Can win with swim and spin move
- High motor
- Didn’t play against many elite tackles in college
At 198 I’d like to see the Colts bolster their wide receiver core again and take Austin Mack out of Ohio State. The senior is a bigger receiver at 6’2″ and 215 pounds, which could mean red-zone targets against smaller corners. Many people complain about his lack of production without realizing the jacked OSU offense this season. Mack could be a good fit for the Colts scheme and can also develop alongside Hilton while learning how to use his body to fight for the ball.
- Attacks the ball at the high point
- Uses his hands to attack defensive backs at the point of attack
- Astounding catch radius
- Can’t break tackles very often
- Slower in an open space
It will be interesting to see how these moves influence the building of the roster for next season.
