Indianapolis Colts 7-Round Mock Draft

Round One – Andrus Peat, OT, Stanford View image | gettyimages.com I love power offensive lineman from Stanford and Peat is just that.  I think Peat has a lot of potential at Right Tackle, even though some has projected him to play on the left side of the line.
