After making some splashes in this year’s NFL free agency period, the Indianapolis Colts still have roster holes they need to fill.
The Colts will need to utilize this year’s draft and try to hit on some late picks.
Some players might be overlooked because of their size or that they went to a small school.
Let’s take a look at 3 prospects that the Indianapolis Colts should consider drafting on the third day of the NFL Draft.
1. Luq Barcoo, CB, San Diego State
Remember when I mentioned that a player might be overlooked because he went to a small school?
Well, Luq Barcoo is a perfect example.
Barcoo had 9 interceptions and 16 passes defended.
The Colts play zone primarily and Barcoo matches that scheme perfectly.
Standing at 6’0 with long arms, Barcoo will make it difficult for opposing quarterbacks to throw the ball in open pockets when he is on the field.
After losing Pierre Desir, the cornerback position is a necessity.

2. Isaiah Hodgins, WR, Oregon State
Since drafting T.Y Hilton in the 3rd round of the 2012 draft, the Colts have swung and missed on the receiver position often.
Most notoriously with Phillip Dorsett, who the Colts used a 1st-round draft pick on back in 2015.
He played with the Colts for only two seasons while catching only 3 touchdown passes.
Also, that was with Andrew Luck throwing passes to him.
Luckily for the Colts, there is a big athletic WR named Isaiah Hodgins that will be available late in the draft.
Apparently, this is the year of the wide receiver position, which means you can get major value at the position late.
Hodgins who stands tall at 6’4 uses his big body frame to go over defensive backs to make spectacular “jump ball” catches.
He is similar to “Mike Williams” who is also a tall WR who can jump up and get it.
I say that because Williams plays for the Chargers who QB Phillip Rivers very much liked during his time there.

– 12 targets
– 12 receptions
– 9 TDs

3. Jonathan Garvin, Edge, Miami
I know picking a DL might come to a surprise since the Colts traded their 1st-round pick for a defensive lineman.
If there is one thing I learned watching the NFL is that you can never have enough good pass rushers on your team.
I have personally been watching Jonathan Garvin since he got to Miami as a freshman.
Garvin might not have the blow away numbers, but he is always around the ball and has a lot of raw skill.
If coached up well, he could turn into a great obvious” pass play” pass rusher.
