2025 NFL Mock Draft

Selection Comment - Pick #11

Return to Mock Draft

The Colts had a really solid draft in April; it actually looks better in the cold light of day than it did at the time. Laiatu Latu and Adonai Mitchell could be seen as risky picks, but their potential is off the charts. It still seems odd that Latu was the first defensive player selected. Indy had three RD5 picks and I think all of them could contribute early. I especially like the flexibility that Jaylon Carlies, selected 151 overall, brings to the defense; keep an eye on him.

Anthony Richardson is back at practice and, seemingly, without any injury-related restrictions. Richardson will need to be at full speed by Week 1 when C.J. Stroud's Texans visit Lucas Oil Stadium. The Colts tough start to the season continues when they visit Green Bay in Week 2. The bye week arrives in Week 14, which is later than ideal. Indy scored only one primetime game (Week 11 at the Jets.) Hopefully the Colts can quietly make a run at the playoffs away from the glare of the bright lights.
