New Era Scouting » Archive » First Round Mock Draft: "27. Indianapolis Colts – Evander Hood, DT, Missouri
Quickly, name the Colts starting defensive tackles. If you can, feel free to apply for a job with New Era Scouting! The point is, the Colts have been woefully overmatched in the middle of their defensive line over the past few years. Not much has changed in 2008, where Eric Foster and Keyunta Dawson combined for 25 starts and 0 sacks. They weren’t much better against the run either. With Jerry gone just a few picks before, the Colts would be best served to move out of the first round and still put them in position for the draft’s next best tackles. While some mocks will have Auburn’s Sen’Derrick Marks in this spot, we’re just not that high on him. Look for Hood to be the next tackle taken, though at 27, it would be a reach."
