NFL Mock Draft 2011: Will the Indianapolis Colts Draft a QB with Second PIck?
Peyton Manning Gets Another WR
Indianapolis Colts General Manager Bill Polian said recently it might be time to draft a successor to Peyton Manning, and he is not wrong in that line of thought.
I am just not sure if the Colts really are ready to do that in the first two rounds of the draft.
The Indianapolis Colts need some more depth at wide receiver, and with Titus Young still on the board, there is good reason to think he comes off here.
In this mock, the only "name" quarterback still on the board is Ricky Stanzi. The Colts will pass and take the wide receiver.
If any of those players still were on the board, I still do not think I would mock any quarterback to the Colts higher than the third round this year. That could change next year, but I just do not think the Colts are ready to draft a quarterback higher than the third round at this point.
I do think it is more likely the Colts wait until next year, when the crop of quarterbacks supposedly will be better, and try and take one in the first two rounds in 2012, assuming there is a 2012 draft.
As far as this year goes, the Colts need to add more depth into their wide receivers again after a rash of injuries in 2010 left the team severely depleted.
