Colts 7-round 2022 NFL Mock Draft 5.0: Indianapolis fills remaining needs
Picking each of the Indianapolis Colts’ seven picks in the 2022 NFL Draft.
We are now deep into the month of April. The excitement and anticipation have been building for months and it’s almost time for the 2022 NFL Draft. The Draft is being held in Las Vegas from April 28-30.
At this point in the process, fans have already seen the NFL combine, pro days, and players have visited teams. Fans have also scrolled through and analyzed hundreds of mock drafts wondering which players their team will pick.
The Indianapolis Colts have seven picks in this year’s draft. Indy no longer owns its first-round pick after last year’s Carson Wentz trade. That means the Colts’ first pick will be on day two of the Draft.
There is very little expectation for Indy to trade up in this year’s draft, so I wouldn’t expect to see them making any major moves on day one. However, Indianapolis does still own seven picks after the first round which means they should be big players on days two and three
Since general manager Chris Ballard took over for Indy, the Colts have had a knack for finding players who can be big contributors to the team late in the NFL draft.
The Colts still have some major needs going into the 2022 NFL Draft. Some of the needs include: wide receiver, left tackle, tight end, and depth at safety. I would expect to see some day-one starters taken for Indy in this draft.
For this mock draft, I used Pro Football Network’s mock draft simulator. Using this tool I was able to make Indy’s selections and have a good idea of which players would still be available when the Colts picked.
Let’s take a look at the 7-round 2022 mock draft for the Indianapolis Colts.
