Indianapolis Colts 2021 NFL Mock Draft Roundup 2.0

Throughout the year and leading up to the 2021 NFL draft, we will update our Indianapolis Colts Mock Draft Roundup showing picks for the Indianapolis Colts from several prominent sites and draft analysts.

For a more inclusive lists of mock drafts for the Indianapolis Colts, check out our 2021 Indianapolis Colts Mock Draft Database.

The following are picks in recent mock drafts for the Colts:

Rotoworld - Thor Nystrom (8/21)

26. Jamie Newman, QB, Georgia

Newman is a really intriguing talent, and arguably the current leader of the second tier of QB prospects behind the Lawrence-Fields-Lance trio. Newman is stoutly built and eats down the field, with PFF passing grades of 90+ on balls thrown 20+ yards downfield in all three directions. He's also athletic enough to do damage outside of the pocket, where he's a load to tackle.

PFF - Mike Renner (8/19)

25. Marvin Wilson, IDL, Florida State

The Colts used last year's first-rounder to acquire DeForest Buckner, but that won't fix their defensive interior completely overnight. Wilson can be a pocket-pusher from the nose tackle position and has earned an overall grade of 90.0 or higher in each of the past two seasons.

The Draft Network - Kyle Crabbs (8/19)

23. Shaun Wade, CB, Ohio State

The Colts probably regret missing out on Campbell a bit, as he seems to be their "type" at cornerback between adding Pierre Desir, Rock Ya-Sin and Xavier Rhodes over the past few offseasons. But with Desir off the roster and Rhodes looking like a shell of himself, more is needed at corner. Wade has outside potential and a proven track record inside in the slot -- but regardless he's physical and super athletic.

2020 NFL Power Rankings: Indianapolis Colts

Throughout the 2020 NFL season, we will compile a consensus NFL Power Rankings that averages the rankings of all 32 NFL teams.

Here is where the Indianapolis Colts rank in terms of average, best and worst in our consensus Post-Draft NFL Power Rankings:

Below you will find a post-NFL Draft roundup for the Colts in our consensus 2020 NFL Power Rankings.

The Athletic -- Rank: 9

The Colts continue to be one of our darlings of the offseason after a free agency haul that netted Buckner and Philip Rivers. Similar to our thoughts about the Chiefs, we usually don't get too excited about running back draft picks, but Jonathan Taylor to Indianapolis in the second round makes so much sense and he should be an immediate asset.

CBS Sports -- Rank: 11

I didn't love their draft, but landing DeForest Buckner for their first-round pick will help the defense. They will win the AFC South.

Indianapolis Colts Fantasy Football Projections

Not only do we have fantasy football projections by positions, we have team-by-team fantasy projections as well.

Here are our projections for the Indianapolis Colts running backs for the 2020 NFL season:

PlayerAtt.YardsTDRec.YardsTDPoints
Jonathan Taylor207.3932.97.2615.4110.90.46150.7
While Marlon Mack may enter the season as the starter, the Colts will "ride the hot hand" and a shift to Taylor getting the larger share of the workload at some point in the season would be a realistic expectation. The most prolific collegiate running back ever over a three-year span, Taylor has shown the ability and durability to handle a workhorse role and possesses a rare combination of speed (sub-4.4) for his size (226 pounds).
Marlon Mack177787.75.318.554.40.34118.11
Posting his first-ever 1,000-yard rushing season on a career-high 247 carries, Mack also set a career low in receptions (14) and targets (17). Entering the final year of his rookie deal, Mack will cede more work to rookie Jonathan Taylor as the season progresses.
Nyheim Hines37.3139.91.1246328.91.1560.5
With Taylor and Mack dominating early-down work, Hines will still be a factor on third downs. Earlier this offseason, Frank Reich said that "it wouldn’t surprise me if there’s a game this season that Nyheim Hines has 10 catches."
Jordan Wilkins10.548.30.261.810.40.057.73
Roosevelt Nix1.21.20.052.715.70.142.83
