The Colts were awarded another draft pick today to use in the 2019 draft. That leaves them with a lot of draft capital to use in April.
The Colts were awarded a compensatory pick today. They were awarded a fourth round pick for this year’s draft after losing Donte Moncrief in free agency last season. That leaves the Colts with nine draft picks to use in the draft this season.
Last year, they had eleven and did some damage with their picks. They were able to get solid players even in later rounds. But they need to try to do the same thing this year. If they can do that, they will be in great shape yet again for next year and beyond.
With those nine picks, the Colts can address some of the needs that they have on the team right now, like pass rusher and wide receiver. They also need to build some more depth along the offensive line. Expect some picks to be used on all of those positions.
The Colts were awarded the 135th overall pick today. That pick wasn’t necessarily expected, but could help the team out in a big way if they hit on a prospect. If they don’t, it’s just an extra pick they have that they used. It is a only a possible win for them.
It will be interesting to see how the Colts prioritize their picks. Look out for a full mock draft coming in the next few weeks to show how we think they will draft.
