*NOTE: With the Indianapolis Colts sending the No. 3-overall pick on Saturday to the New York Jets in exchange for the Jets' No. 6-overall pick, two second-round picks and a secoud-round pick in next year's NFL Draft, few of the draft pundits usually featured on our "Mock Draft Monday" series have had the opportunity to update their mock drafts to reflect those moves. But those who have made those updates are featured below.

Date of mock draft:March 19 (link)

Selection:Saquon Barkley, running back, Penn State

Analysis: "The Colts will closely be watching what the Giants do with the second pick. If New York does take a quarterback, Indianapolis will be in a good spot. They can still get arguably the best player in the draft in Barkley and they have extra assets to replenish a roster that is light on talent."

Selection:Bradley Chubb, defensive end, North Carolina State

Analysis: "Well done, Colts. They nabbed three second-round selections and got Chubb in the first round. He's ready to be an alpha pass-rusher in the NFL."

Selection:Bradley Chubb, defensive end, North Carolina State

Analysis: "The Colts successfully traded down with the Jets, picking an impressive amount of value. I had Indianapolis taking Chubb back at No. 3, and that choice still makes sense at No. 6 since Saquon Barkley went off the board at No. 1. The Colts need an edge defender who can be the building block for their defense and a potential franchise defensive player. Chubb could fit that for Indianapolis. Chubb totaled 73 tackles with 25 for a loss, 10 sacks, three forced fumbles and two passes batted in 2017. He was awesome against Florida State, making some huge plays to lead N.C. State to a road upset with two sacks, a forced fumble and seven tackles. Chubb dominated the competition in 2017, playing like a top-10 pick. The 6-foot-4, 269-pound Chubb has scheme flexibility and was a tough defender for the Wolfpack. He has good quickness for a big defensive end and has shown the ability to get off blocks with his strength and hand usage. Chubb has developed some variety in pass-rushing moves and looks like an asset as a future three-down starter in the NFL. In 2016, he totaled 58 tackles with 22 tackles for a loss, 10.5 sacks, three forced fumbles and one pass batted. As a sophomore in 2015, Chubb collected 5.5 sacks."

Selection:Bradley Chubb, defensive end, North Carolina State

Analysis: "The Colts desperately need a pass rusher to spark a defense that's struggled to generate pressure off the edges."

Selection:Bradley Chubb, defensive end, North Carolina State

Analysis: "The Colts are the winners of this draft. They'll likely be in a position to select either Bradley Chubb or Quenton Nelson at No. 6 overall, and they'll get one of them after picking up three second-round picks in the trade with the Jets. Crazy. Indianapolis has some nice edge rushers in Jabaal Sheard and John Simon, but neither is the elite talent Chubb happens to be. Chubb steadily moved up my mock drafts during the season. At 6-4, 275, Chubb has a great blend of size and speed, and he's been dominant this season. There's some talk that Chubb is viewed as the top defensive prospect in NFL circles."
