As we are just two weeks away from the NFL Draft, Colts fans are anxious to see who else will join the team after a busy offseason.
The Indianapolis Colts have multiple needs, here is how they may address them with a 7-round mock draft.
Round 2, Pick 34: Laviska Shenault Jr.
After trading away the 13th overall pick to the San Francisco 49ers for DeForest Buckner the Colts will need a player who can make an impact.
The junior wide receiver out of Colorado can do just that.
Shenault brings a combination of size, speed, and great hands.
This skill set gives him the ability to be extremely versatile as he can stretch the defense vertically and turn screen passes into big plays.
He was a first-team All-Pac-12 selection after leading the FBS with 9.6 receptions per game and ranking fourth in the country with 112.3 receiving yards per game.
The team MVP also scored on five of 17 rushes on the year, making him the only player in the country to have five rushing and receiving touchdowns in 2019.
He also may be able to have great success as a kick returner.
His ability to run and make defenders miss in the open field is elite.
Shenault is the playmaker that can take the Colts offense to the next level.

Round 2, Pick 44: Trevon Diggs
Diggs was a two-way athlete when he entered Alabama.
He played both wide receiver and cornerback along with returning kicks as a freshman.
Once he went to defense full time in his sophomore year is where he really shined.
His physical style of play allows him to excel at press coverage and his great hands allow him to create turnovers once the ball is in the air.
Diggs started 12 contests as a senior, earning third-team Associated Press All-American and second-team All-SEC accolades after intercepting three passes and tying for the team lead with eight pass breakups
The senior out of Tuscaloosa would be a great addition to the young and skilled secondary that the Colts have.
Trevon Diggs (Stefon’s younger bro) showed up to Alabama as a WR his freshman year and made starting DBs look silly…
The transition to CB has been as smooth as it gets.. running routes of his opponents like this w natural ball skills/instincts… Stay healthy he’s a top-20 guy pic.twitter.com/cKcpuaOJeI

Round 3, Pick 75: Isaiah Wilson
The Tackle out of Georgia would be a massive addition, both literally and figuratively, to the Colts offensive line.
At 6′ 7”, 340 pounds Wilson uses his size and agility to dominate as both a pass and run blocker.
During his 25 games at Georgia, Wilson was named a Freshman All-American and to the SEC All-Freshman team.
He added to that his sophomore season as he was a named a second-team All American despite only playing in 11 games.
His elite size and physical gifts make his potential very high.
Scouts say that the more he plays the better his technical skills get.
Wilson would be a great value pick in the third round to solidify the offensive line.

Round 4, Pick 122: Ben Bredeson
The Michigan product is another potential addition to the offensive line.
Bredeson was a four-year starter and was named team captain in his junior year.
His experience in a playing experience in a pro-style offense has made many scouts believe he will be a valuable starter in the NFL.
Bredson had a decorated amateur career as he was Wisconsin’s Gatorade Player of the Year in high school.
He was also named an Associated Press All American twice in his four years at Michigan.
He profiles as a left guard, which would make a great duo with him opposite Quenton Nelson.
Getting a starting offensive lineman in the fourth round is an opportunity no team should pass up.
Ben Bredeson is an impact freshman. He talked to us about adjusting to the college game and more.

Round 5, Pick 161: McTelvin Agim
Agim is a newcomer to being a defensive tackle.
Though it is his skills developed as an edge rusher that makes his potential so high.
He was the Gatorade Arkansas Player of the Year and All-American as a high school senior where he racked up 24 sacks.
At Arkansas, he was a force in getting to the backfield as he led his team in tackles for loss in both his junior and senior seasons.
Scouts feel that Agim needs to get stronger to succeed at the NFL level.
If that happens, he could be a problem as the ability to rush and penetrate the backfield as an interior lineman is rare.
Arkansas IDL McTelvin Agim is a ton of fun. Great first step and athleticism in general. Extremely hot motor. His upside as a pass rusher is enormous. He doesn’t have all the nuances yet, but his toolbox is a really good one. Really fun player.

Round 6, Pick 194: Jake Luton
Luton finished transferred to Oregon State as a junior after rewriting the record books at Ventura Community College.
After a spine injury derailed most of his junior season Luton had a great senior year earning honorable mention All-Pac-12 honors.
He profiles as a pro-style quarterback.
Luton possesses the ability to deliver passes accurately, especially downfield.
His accuracy is displayed through his touchdown and interception numbers.
Over 19 games at Oregon State he threw 38 touchdowns while only totaling seven interceptions.
The Colts have short term options at the quarterback position so spending a high draft pick on a quarterback would lead to an unused investment.
In the sixth round, Jake Luton may be a steal this late in the draft.
The time behind the current veterans on the roster would allow him to develop into the future starter.
He led @BeaverFootball to a 2️⃣8️⃣-point comeback win over Colorado. Jake Luton completed 28 of 39 pass attempts for 310 yards and 3 TDs in the second half and OT.

Round 6, Pick 198: Dalton Keene
The departure of Eric Ebron in free agency leaves a hole in the offensive scheme of the Colts.
Jack Doyle will assume most of the snaps for the upcoming season, but a possible addition of the Virginia Tech tight end could change things.
Keene was a versatile weapon during his collegiate career.
During his few receiving opportunities he flashed the speed and athleticism to show he can make it in the NFL.
He was also used in the rushing attack as he scored five times on eleven carries.
Keene will also find time because he excels as a blocker.
In the Hokies system, he spent a lot of time as an H back where he lead the way for their rushing attack.
If he is selected Keene should find the field quickly as his skill-set and play style will be hard to deny.
Virginia Tech TE Dalton Keene
6’4” 253 lbs.
Bench: 21 reps
-TE/FB hybrid (H-Back)
-Really good lead blocker who will bury dudes
-will struggle blocking stronger edge players straight up
-Most catches were scheme but he’s a beast with the ball pic.twitter.com/uVyqHsFVYB
