Indianapolis Colts Post-Draft 2022 NFL Mock Draft Roundup

Throughout the year and leading up to the 2022 NFL Draft, we will update our Indianapolis Colts Mock Draft Roundup showing picks for the Indianapolis Colts from several prominent sites and draft analysts.

For a more inclusive lists of mock drafts for the Indianapolis Colts, check out our Indianapolis Colts Mock Draft Database.

The following are picks in recent mock drafts for the Colts:

Touchdown Wire - Schofield (5/7)

23. Charles Cross, OT, Mississippi State

The Philadelphia Eagles could have three picks in the first round, and that depends on what Carson Wentz does during the 2021 season. As part of the terms of the Wentz trade the Colts included a conditional selection with these terms: If the quarterback plays on 75% of the Colts' offensive snaps in 2021, or if he plays on 70% of the snaps AND the Colts make the playoffs, the Eagles will receive Indianapolis' 2022 first-round selection. If Wentz fails to hit those numbers, the Eagles will receive the Colts' 2022 second-round selection. Let's take the "glass half-empty" approach and assume Wentz does not meet those conditions, and therefore give Colts fans a reason to read this mock draft.

Despite the retirement of Anthony Castonzo, the Colts did not add to the offensive line until the seventh round of the 2021 NFL draft, so this could be a position the team addresses early in 2022. Charles Cross was impressive last year in his first season starting at left tackle, and if he continues to impress he could leave school after the end of his redshirt sophomore season, making him an option for the Colts next draft.

San Diego Union Tribune - Brown (5/4)

24. John Metchie III, WR, Alabama

Metchie could be the fifth Alabama wide receiver selected in the first round in three years. He had 916 yards on 55 receptions and six touchdowns in an offense dominated by Heisman Trophy winner DeVonta Smith and Najee Harris. He'll be Bryce Young's clear-cut number one target in the fall.

The Athletic - Brugler (5/4)

21. Trent McDuffie, CB, Washington

Washington has become the Pacific Coast version of "DBU" and McDuffie is next in line to be an early-round pick. Entering his third season as a starter, the California native doesn't have ideal size, but he plays with obvious swagger and compete skills to stay on top of routes.

CBS Sports - Wilson (5/3)

23. Rasheed Walker, OT, Penn State

Even after Anthony Castanzo retired, the Colts didn't address the left tackle position in the '21 draft. With a solid '21 campaign, Walker, who was dominant at times last season, will be in the first-round mix.

NBC Edge - Klassen (5/2)

21. Thayer Munford, OT, Ohio State

Many expected the Colts to address left tackle with this year's draft. Instead, the Colts double-dipped at EDGE, leaving tackle to be an issue for 2022. Munford is heading into his fourth year starting for the Buckeyes. In each of his first three years starting, Munford has only gotten better and better, particularly with respect to his work in the run game. Munford probably could have been a top-50 pick in 2021, but returns to school with hopes to iron out his technique just enough to raise him into the first round here.
