2006 Indianapolis Colts NFL Mock Draft Picks
Outside Linebacker: The Colts have a stud in Cato June but the other outside linebacker position is looking for an upgrade. David Thorton signed with Tennessee and Rocky Calmus can't stay healthy and remains unsigned.
Middle Linebacker: At the middle position Gary Brackett did a fine job his first year as a starter and although unsigned will probably be back next season. The backup Rob Morris is still unsigned and it is unlikely he will be back.
Running Back: The Colts lost their stud in Edgerin James to the Arizona Cardinals. Dominic Rhodes is now the starter and has done a fine job in the past but Rhodes is injury prone and is more suited for a backup role. Depth is needed at this position.
Indianapolis has not done much thus far in free agency. The only notable signing was picking up Kicker Adam Vinatieri from New England to replace Mike Vanderjagt. The Colts have managed to lose 2 great players in Edgerin James to Arizona and Larry Tripplett to Buffalo.
Replacing James is probably the most important piece to focus on and they will do so with the first pick looking at Wisconsin running back Brian Calhoun or LSU's Joseph Addai.
Indianapolis will than look to fix the linebacker problem, they could use both a middle and outside linebacker and a defensive end but the Colts traded away this years 4th round pick to the Eagles in the 2005 NFL draft. Bottom line for Indy to say an elite team, they must be very careful and not select any busts with the limited number of picks they have.
