Mel Kiper Jr. Has Colts Taking Terry McLaurin In 1st Round

All names of wide receivers that at some point have been slotted to the Colts at 26 in the upcoming NFL Draft, but now, Mel Kiper Jr. has added another to the list in his latest mock draft:

Indianapolis native and Ohio State star Terry McLaurin. 

Can't say I'd be totally surprised if this were to happen. McLaurin seems like a "Ballard type of guy" through and through. Veteran at Ohio State, team captain, absolutely does it all from playing outside to inside to playing on special teams - the guy has proven to be as versatile as they come.  

The interesting part of this is how quickly McLaurin is flying up draft boards. 

Before the pre-draft process, McLaurin was seen as a late third round, early fourth round guy that could make the roster as a special teamer with the hopes to grow as a receiver. 

But after running a 4.35 at the Combine, interviewing very well, and killing his pro day workout at Ohio State, teams apparently are falling in love with him. 

Let me tell you, he's an easy guy to like. Check our interview with the potential future Colt before the NFL Combine this year.
