Colts listed as ‘ideal landing spot’ for OT Walker Little

The Indianapolis Colts are likely to add an offensive tackle to the roster during the 2021 NFL draft and Pro Football Focus believes they have the perfect fit.

In their listing of the ideal landing spots for their top-10 offensive line prospects in the draft, the Colts were the spot for former Stanford offensive tackle Walker Little.

Little is a high-risk, high-reward prospect. The former five-star recruit played just one game over the past two years due to injury and opting out of the 2020 season. As a result, Little is a question mark. But the 6-foot-7, 309-pound tackle has all the physical traits a team could want from a tackle prospect, and what we last saw from him in pass protection was promising.

Across Little’s last seven games at Stanford — one in 2019 and six in 2018 — he posted a 93.3 pass-blocking grade and a 0.4% pressure rate allowed. He has a strong core and some of the best mirror ability in the entire class.

Indy has a clear need at left tackle following Anthony Castonzo‘s retirement. It would be a great environment for Little to get back up to speed in. Not to mention, this would also allow Quenton Nelson to stay at guard, where he belongs.

Still holding the No. 21 overall pick after the trade for Carson Wentz, the Colts could very well use that first-rounder on a tackle. It doesn’t appear Little is in that conversation, but it wouldn’t be a surprise to see the Colts find a replacement for Castonzo in the draft.

There is still just under two months until the draft, but Pro Football Focus feels this fit is perfect for Indy.
