2011 BGN Community Mock Draft Pick #52: The Indianapolis Colts

With the fifty-second pick in the 2011 BGN Mock Draft, uhrsker selects...

James Brewer - OT, Indiana

The Colts decide to go local with offensive tackle James Brewer. With Tony Ugoh not panning out as Tarik Glenn's replacement and Charlie Johnson being a natural guard, Brewer's drafting will allow Johnson to move back to guard and the Colts will hopefully have their tackle for the next decade.

Benjamin Ijalana - OG, Villanova

The Colts' offensive line was spectacularly bad last season. Peyton Manning was constantly under attack by the opposing defense, with everyone not named Jeff Saturday acted like a revolving door. Plus, the run blocking was poor, with the Colts averaging just 3.8 yards per carry. So, obviously the Colts need some new bodies up front.

So, the Colts go ahead and pick Benjamin Ijalana with their second round pick. Ijalana is a former tackle in college that will slide into guard position, ala Todd Herremans. He should have the athleticism to have a quality transition and match up well against defensive tackles. Ijalana has the foot quickness to hold up against his man. He has good size and bulk at 6'4", 320 pounds. Ijalana has good pass and run blocking skills to stay on an NFL team for years.

Next on the clock will be anuj with the Philadelphia Eagles.
