3 prospects Colts should hope are available after the first round
Colts should hope Bernhard Raimann is available after the first round
If Indianapolis doesn’t select a wide receiver in the second round, the team will likely draft a left tackle. They need depth along the offensive line and could provide some competition at the left tackle position.
A tackle that will be a great fit for Indy is Central Michigan’s Bernhard Raimann. Raimann has been predicted to the Colts in a few mock drafts and it would be a good selection if he makes it out of the first round.
As the Draft approaches, Raimann’s stock has risen to become a first-round talent and he could be snagged off the board in the last 12 picks of the first.
Raimann has great athleticism at the tackle position because he was playing tight end just two seasons ago. Central Michigan switched him to tackle and he adjusted so well that he is one of the top linemen prospects in this class.
Indy has a need for a long-term left tackle and Raimann could fill that void. Currently, Matt Pryor is expected to start at left tackle but it’s unclear if he will be the long-term answer in Indianapolis.
If the Colts have the chance to select Bernhard Raimann, they may find the person that can lineup next to Quenton Nelson for the next decade.
Hopefully, at least one of these names is still on the board when Indianapolis is finally on the clock to draft in the second round.
