Mel Kiper Jr. and Todd McShay unveiled their updated mock drafts on Thursday. The Indianapolis Colts, as it’s been known since last September, do not have a first-round pick after trading it for running back Trent Richardson.
The Browns will have the Colts' 26th pick in the first round due to the trade. The Colts definitely could use the pick because of the number of holes they need to fill this offseason.
McShay has the Browns selecting Fresno State receiver Davante Adams at No. 26.
Here’s some breakdown on Adams.
“Adams is a good-sized WR who had exceptional college production. While he can improve his route-running efficiency, he shows good burst out of his cuts to separate and effectively uses his bigger frame to shield defenders. I also have yet to see him drop a pass in five games I've studied on tape.”
NFL Insider Matt Williamson said receiver is one of the positions the Colts need to address when I spoke to him earlier this week. The Colts may not have taken a receiver in the first round if they had a pick because it’s not as much of an issue as other areas, like the offensive line.
Colts general manager Ryan Grigson is known for always looking to make moves. Don't be surprised if he tries to make a trade for a first-round pick.
