The Colts have an incredible amount of draft capital after their trade down with the Jets, and they can still get a premium position player at number six overall.
The Colts’ offseason has been a bit disappointing thus far, but they did make one of the league’s best moves by trading back three spots in the draft and acquiring two second round picks in this draft and another one in 2019.
If a majority of the teams in the top five select quarterbacks, the Colts still should be able to pick up a future superstar at number six overall. Their three second round selections in this draft allow general manager Chris Ballard to continue to build their core of young talent.
Here is a complete list of the Colts’ picks in the 2018 NFL Draft:

The Colts could be trading down again from number six if a team gives Chris Ballard an offer he can’t refuse. There are still a few teams picking after the Colts that would love to jump up and grab a top quarterback prospect if they’re still on the board.
If Ballard decides to stay at six, one of the best position players in the draft class will still be on the board.
While Colts fans would’ve loved to see more action in free agency, a strong draft could easily make up for that disappointment.
