After the Colts hit on Quenton Nelson at six, they swung and missed with Darius Leonard and Braden Smith here. Leonard fills a need but there is far better talent on the board. As for Smith, the Colts already took a guard.
Leonard is a fast sideline to sideline linebacker who covers well and is relentless in his pursuit. Smith is a big blocker who is good in both the run and pass game.
With so much elite talent on the board such as Harold Landry, Isaiah Oliver, and Josh Jackson, I can’t comprehend the reasoning behind these picks.
