NFL Mock Draft 2013: Virginia's Oday Aboushi projected to Indianapolis

Peter Casey-US PRESSWIRE

The Cavaliers OT would help the Colts offensive line.

The Indianapolis Colts exceeded expectations this season, as rookie QB Andrew Luck led the team to a 11-5 regular season record and a playoff berth. The team overcame many obstacles, including playing part of the season without head coach Chuck Pagano, before finally falling to the Baltimore Ravens in the opening round of the playoffs.

One reason the Colts failed to advance is because of subpar offensive line play, which is why Mocking The Draft projects Virginia offensive tackle Oday Aboushi to be selected by Indy in the first round of April's draft.

Oday Aboushi is an intriguing prospect. He has outstanding athleticism and just needs some seasoning to become a quality tackle in the NFL. The Colts desperately need help on the offensive line, so this pick would make a ton of sense for them.

The 6'6, 310-pound Aboushi was an All-ACC first-teamer in 2012, and was also a team captain for the Cavaliers. He is scheduled to participate in the Senior Bowl.
