With the #27 pick in the TST mock draft, the Colts select...

Here's JohnMatuszakloveschunk with the pick.

With the 27th pick, the Indianapolis Colts take Evander "Ziggy" Hood - DT - Missouri.

The Colts probably would have preferred Perria Jerry with this pick, but they can't pass up on the opportunity to draft a DT with the skill set of Hood's. The Colts are desperate for run stuffing D-Tackles, and Hood fits the bill. His size, technique, and tenacity will all lend themselves to playing D-Line in Indy. He can start right away on that defense, and have an immediate impact. The Colts had to consider Percy Harvin with this pick, with such a serious run on Wideouts going on, but WR is a luxury, not a necessity with this pick, and the Colts make a smart choice in picking the big DT from Missouri.

On the clock: Buffalo (in a pick acquired from the Eagles for OT Jason Peters) with the #28 pick, represented by hambone28.

We're almost finished. Here's the rest of the draft order. At this point, go ahead and make your picks in the comments if you want, and I'll make a post out of them. That might be faster.
