2011 NFL Mock Draft: Indianapolis Colts Select S Quinton Carter

SB Nation's 2011 NFL mock draft moves onto the 53rd overall pick which is owned by the Indianapolis Colts. Stampede Blue looks to shore up that defense and selects S Quinton Carter.

Bob Sanders leaves. A new safety comes in. Here's what Stampede Blue says:

Strong safety is a very important position in the Tampa 2. Carter can thrive in Larry Coyer's system, which took a step back last year due in part to the injuries at safety.

They'd really like to go with a defensive tackle here but they're stuck in that area where it's just not a good value. Sanders was such a force at safety (when healthy) for the Colts so they're hoping Carter can turn into the same.
