The draft is only a couple of weeks away. Most teams have all of their scouting done and have made their draft boards. Here are three players who are a little under the radar that the Colts might consider drafting.
This is one of the deeper drafts at key positions that I can remember. As many as five quarterbacks could get taken in the first round. There are several who could get taken later that are also high-quality guys that could flourish in the right system.
The same goes for wide receivers. There could be as many as seven taken in the first round, but there are plenty of quality guys who will go in rounds two or three that will contribute early. In fact, this might be the deepest draft of wide receivers in my lifetime.
That depth makes this a very compelling draft for the Colts. They have needs at both quarterback and wide receiver. I would expect them to take at least one of each. They also have a need at tight end and need some depth at left tackle and the rest of the offensive line.
I expect the Colts to address the quarterback and receiver needs relatively early in their draft. Remember they don’t have a first-round pick for the second consecutive year, but they do have two second-rounders. But we never know what they will do until they do it for certain.
With that in mind, here are three prospects who are flying a bit under the radar who the Colts could decide to take. The first prospect is at the quarterback position, but it’s not any of the guys you have been hearing about all offseason.
