As we host the Fansided Locals and NFL Sites Mock Draft we were contacted by the Local Site for the Indianapolis Colts, InkOnIndy.com in relation to the trade they made with the Cleveland Browns. The site proposed writing a hypothetical pick that the Colts would make if they still had their first round pick, which ended up being #26. Here is their selection:
(Hypothetically) #26 Indianapolis Colts Select Allen Robinson, WR, Penn State – The Indianapolis Colts select Allen Robinson with the 26th pick. Robinson fills a need at wide receiver. He would likely be third on the depth chart behind a recovering Reggie Wayne and TY Hilton. Had the Colts not foolishly traded their first round pick to the Browns for running back Trent Richardson, they would most certainly go after a wide receiver. The Colts lost Reggie Wayne mid way through the season, and struggled without him. They need a big possession receiver who can attack defenses in multiple ways. Robinson would be a great fit for the Colts. The 6-3 210-pound receiver has great hands to go along with speed and strength. With TY Hilton burning down field, Robinson would be free underneath to haul in first downs and get big yardage after the catch. He was very productive in his junior year with 97 catches for 1,432 yards.

What do you think of this hypothetically selection? Would the Colts be happier, both short and long term, with Robinson instead of Richardson? Will the Colts look to move picks to move up in the draft to get a WR compliment or should they focus on the defensive side of the ball? Let us know below and chime in over at Ink on Indy.
