The 2020 quarterback class wasn’t billed as anything that will go down in the history books, but most agreed pre-draft that there were multiple franchise-type options to be had.

Colts hammer defensive needs in this seven-round 2021 NFL mock draft

Improving the Indianapolis Colts with a complete seven-round 2021 NFL mock draft. The Indianapolis Colts could not pull off the upset in Buffalo and will now look ahead to the upcoming offseason.
