2014 Indianapolis Colts Mock Draft: Post-Free Agency Edition

The Indianapolis Colts took another step forward last year. Andrew Luck continued his strong play and guided the Colts to their first playoff win since the 2009 AFC Championship. Going forward, however, the Colts will have to build through the draft, especially after key players like Luck and T.Y. Hilton cash in after their rookie contracts are up. Here is a look at Indy's mock draft after the first few days of free agency.

2nd Round, Pick #59: Stanley Jean-Baptiste, CB, Nebraska

Because of the Trent Richardson trade, the Colts do not have a first-round pick to work with. They can make up for it by drafting a sleeper with first-round talent. Because of his size and physicality at the corner position, Jean-Baptiste has been billed by many as the next Richard Sherman. The Colts could use him for depth in the secondary, especially knowing Greg Toler's injury history.

One major hole the Colts have to fill this offseason is at safety. With the departure of Antoine Bethea and the inconsistent play of Laron Landry, the Colts could really use a ball-hawking safety with good size. Dion Bailey fits the bill nicely.

Round 5, Pick #154: Russell Bodine, C, North Carolina

Does anyone actually know what they Colts are going to do at center? They signed Cowboys castoff Phil Costa yesterday, but that seems like it could be more of a depth signing. Even though Khaled Holmes is also on the roster, Indianapolis could possibly use another versatile lineman like Bodine who could play both the center and guard positions.

Round 6, Pick #187: Jeremy Gallon, WR, Michigan

Indianapolis' wide receiving corps is pretty interesting as it stands. In addition to Reggie Wayne and T.Y. Hilton, they have three youngsters who all show promise: Da'Rick Rogers, Lavon Brazil, and Griff Whalen. Indy might want to give Andrew Luck another young weapon by adding Gallon to the mix.

Round 7, Pick #209: Tre Boston, S, North Carolina

The Colts secondary was underwhelming last year to say the least. Indy would be wise to take a flyer on this speedy free safety from North Carolina.
