Finally, after months of rumors and mock drafts, the 2014 NFL Draft is just days away. In the upcoming draft, the Indianapolis Colts will look to fill needs on their offensive and defensive lines as well as at cornerback and safety. The Colts have just five picks in the draft, making it paramount that they land the right players with their selections. Here is one final mock draft for the Indianapolis Colts.

Second Round (59th overall): Jimmie Ward, S, Northern Illinois

The Colts lost veteran safety Antoine Bethea this offseason, leaving them with a gaping hole at one of their safety spots. With their first selection, the Colts could look to fill this hole by drafting Jimmie Ward. Ward is a ball hawking safety with great coverage skills. He lacks prototypical size for the position, but his athleticism makes up for it. Ward could start opposite LaRon Landry from day one for Indy.

Third Round (90th overall): Trai Turner, OG, LSU

The interior of the Colts' offensive line struggled to keep Andrew Luck upright last season. Indianapolis should look to bring in young talent in this area that can provide better protection for the franchise quarterback. Trai Turner would be a great fit in the third round. Turner could be a difference-maker in the run-game. He also held his own in pass protection against SEC competition.

Fifth Round (166th overall): Adrian Hubbard, DE/OLB, Alabama

Adrian Hubbard would be a great addition to the Colts' pass rush. Hubbard has great size and strength. He is very good against the run and shows flashes as a pass-rusher. Hubbard has tremendous upside, and if he can learn to play with better consistency, he would be an absolute steal in the fifth round. Hubbard also represents a possible successor to Robert Mathis, who will be 33 years old this season.

Sixth Round (203rd overall): Bennett Jackson, CB, Notre Dame

Indianapolis lacks quality depth at cornerback. Bennett Jackson is an experienced corner with above-average ball skills who would help strengthen Indy's secondary. Jackson is also a talented special teams player who will likely make an NFL roster because of his playmaking ability in this area.

Seventh Round (232nd overall): Ryan Groy, OG, Wisconsin

In the seventh round, the Colts would be wise to continue to add depth to their offensive line. Ryan Groy played in 54 games at Wisconsin, primarily as an offensive guard. Groy has great size and a nonstop motor. He projects to be a backup interior lineman, but has the potential to grow into a starter.
