Indianapolis Colts Mock Draft Monday: Feb. 12

Expert: Dan Kadar, SBNation Date of mock draft: Feb. 12 (link) Selection: Bradley Chubb, defensive end, North Carolina State Analysis: “Going with Quenton Nelson with the third pick would be a surprise choice but a logical one because he’s considered by some as the best player in the draft this year.
Saquon Barkley does that on offense, and Jim Irsay insinuated he’d be in favor of this pick, but the perceived best edge rusher in the country would be ideal as well.” —————————— Expert: Charlie Campbell, WalterFootball.com Date of mock draft: Feb. 12 (link) Selection: Bradley Chubb, defensive end, North Carolina State Analysis: “I think Indianapolis will likely trade down.
The 6-foot-4, 275-pound Chubb has scheme flexibility and has been a tough defender for the Wolfpack.
At 6-4, 275, Chubb has a great blend of size and speed, and he’s been dominant this season.
The Colts will be another potential team looking to trade back if someone wants to move up for a QB.” —————————— Expert: Chad Reuter, NFL.com Date of mock draft: Feb. 6 (link) Selection: Saquon Barkey, running back, Penn State Analysis: “Barkley’s the top player on the board for most teams, and the Colts can’t rely on Frank Gore, who’s due to become a free agent, forever.” —————————— Expert: Matt Miller, Bleacher Report Date of mock draft: Feb. 5 (link) Selection: Bradley Chubb, defensive end, North Carolina State Analysis: “If the Indianapolis Colts keep this pick instead of trading out to a quarterback-needy team, I expect NC State’s Bradley Chubb to be the selection.
It wouldn’t be a huge surprise to load up the offense, but the needs on defense make it more likely right now that Chubb is the pick.” —————————— Expert: R.J. White, CBS Sports Date of mock draft: Feb. 2 (link) Selection: Bradley Chubb, defensive end, North Carolina State Analysis: “Chubb is easily the best pass-rusher in the class, and the Colts need to boost their pass rush after recording just 25 sacks in 2017 (31st in NFL).
Chubb would have an immediate impact, and the Colts should be happy with either him or Barkley here.” —————————— Expert: Luke Easterling, Draftwire/USA Today Date of mock draft: Feb. 1 (link) Selection: Bradley Chubb, defensive end, North Carolina State Analysis: “I wouldn’t be surprised if an offensive-minded coach … grabs Saquon Barkley here, but the Colts have much bigger needs elsewhere on both sides of the ball.
The more glaring need is for a dominant pass-rusher, and Chubb’s complete skill set fits the bill perfectly.” —————————— Expert: Bucky Brooks, NFL.com Date of mock draft: Jan. 30 (link) Selection: Bradley Chubb, defensive end, North Carolina State Analysis: “Rugged defender with a power-based game that overwhelms blockers on the edge.” —————————— Expert: Lance Zierlein, NFL.com Date of mock draft: Jan. 30 (link) Selection: Bradley Chubb, defensive end, North Carolina State Analysis: “The Colts could go in several directions with this pick, but adding Chubb would address a need without them having to reach to do so.” —————————— Expert: Bryan Fischer, Athlon Sports & Life Date of mock draft: Jan. 30 (link) Selection: Bradley Chubb, defensive end, North Carolina State Analysis: “With enough quarterbacks still on the board, chances are high that the new Colts brain trust pulls a Bill Belichick and trades back to add more picks.
If Indy stays put though, it’s going to be hard to pass up the best defensive player in the draft in Chubb, who will help provide a pass rush to a team that desperately needs one and provide a young building block in the trenches for the team.” —————————— Expert: Daniel Jeremiah, NFL Network Date of mock draft: Jan. 26 (link) Selection: Bradley Chubb, defensive end, North Carolina State Analysis: “The Colts have several needs to address, but a premier pass rusher is at the top of the list.” —————————— Expert: Mel Kiper Jr., ESPN Date of mock draft: Jan. 18 (link; requires ESPN Insider access) Selection: Bradley Chubb, defensive end, North Carolina State Analysis: “Indianapolis is in a good spot to take the best non-quarterback available, and the No.
Their three biggest needs are offensive tackle, edge rusher and running back, and they have three high-end prospects to choose from here.

Selection: Bradley Chubb, defensive end, North Carolina State

Analysis: “Going with Quenton Nelson with the third pick would be a surprise choice but a logical one because he’s considered by some as the best player in the draft this year. Still, guard isn’t as high of a value in the top five as a pass rusher. Chubb may not be a super athlete for a pass rusher, but he does everything well as a defensive end.

Selection: Bradley Chubb, defensive end, North Carolina State

Analysis: “The Colts hired an offensive-minded coach but someone who undoubtedly knows the importance of a strong, deep defensive front in Frank Reich. Chubb is the clear-cut top defensive end in this class.

Selection: Bradley Chubb, defensive end, North Carolina State

Analysis: “The Colts have a number of non-guaranteed contract decisions to make on the defensive side of the ball. The goal of this pick is to find a prospect who creates big plays. Saquon Barkley does that on offense, and Jim Irsay insinuated he’d be in favor of this pick, but the perceived best edge rusher in the country would be ideal as well.

Selection: Bradley Chubb, defensive end, North Carolina State

Analysis: “I think Indianapolis will likely trade down. If they are stuck at No. 3, then I think Saquon Barkley would be their top target with Chubb as a lovely plan B. The Colts need an edge defender who can be the building block for their defense and a potential franchise defensive player. Chubb could fit that for Indianapolis. Chubb totaled 73 tackles with 25 for a loss, 10 sacks, three forced fumbles and two passes batted in 2017. He was awesome against Florida State, making some huge plays to lead N.C. State to a road upset with two sacks, a forced fumble and seven tackles. Chubb dominated the competition in 2017, playing like a top-10 pick. The 6-foot-4, 275-pound Chubb has scheme flexibility and has been a tough defender for the Wolfpack. He has good quickness for a big defensive end and has shown the ability to get off blocks with his strength and hand usage. Chubb has developed some variety in pass-rushing moves and looks like an asset as a future three-down starter in the NFL. In 2016, he totaled 58 tackles with 22 tackles for a loss, 10.5 sacks, three forced fumbles and one pass batted. As a sophomore in 2015, Chubb collected 5.5 sacks.”

Selection: Bradley Chubb, defensive end, North Carolina State

Analysis: “Indianapolis has some nice edge rushers in Jabaal Sheard and John Simon, but neither is the elite talent Bradley Chubb happens to be. With Saquon Barkley off the board, Chubb is one of the two best players available. The Colts don’t need a safety (Minkah Fitzpatrick), and it might be too early to select a guard (Quenton Nelson), so Chubb makes the most sense at No. 3 overall. Chubb steadily moved up my mock drafts during the season. At 6-4, 275, Chubb has a great blend of size and speed, and he’s been dominant this season. There’s some talk that Chubb is viewed as the top defensive prospect in NFL circles.
