2 (59) - Jack Mewhort, OL, Ohio State; 3 (90) - Donte Moncrief, WR, Ole Miss; 5 (166) - Jonathan Newsome, DE, Ball State; 6 (203) - Andrew Jackson, ILB, Western Kentucky; 7 (232) - Ulrick John, OT, Georgia State

Top Picks Analysis: The Colts did not have a first-round pick because of general manager Ryan Grigson's ill-fated trade for disappointing running back Trent Richardson.

Indianapolis badly needed help on the interior offensive line and used its first pick (No. 59 overall) on Ohio State's Jack Mewhort, who played tackle on the college level but projects inside.

Third-round pick Donte Moncrief is a big, raw receiver, who should add to what already is shaping up as a far deeper group of pass catchers for Andrew Luck (Reggie Wayne, Hakeem Nicks, Ty Hilton, Da'Rick Rogers).

Best Value Pick: Seventh-round offensive tackle Ulrick John out of Georgia State has the frame and long arms to be something but needs to add strength.

Questionable Calls: Dealing a first-round pick for Richardson, who showed no explosion as a runner while Ii Cleveland and even less with the Colts, is inexcusable.

Summary: The T-Rich deal put Grigson in a bind and there wasn't much he could do to salvage this draft.

FINAL GRADE: C-
