5 positions Colts need to focus on this offseason
Eric Fisher didn’t work out for Colts
Is there a surprise that an aging veteran with a serious injury didn’t work out this season? The Colts need to stop signing older veterans or guys on “prove-it” deals because this never works out.
In Chris Ballard’s press conference, he told reporters that he has no interest in moving Quenton Nelson to the tackle position.
"“Why would you move a Hall of Fame left guard to left tackle. Just doesn’t make sense.” – Chris Ballard in his latest press conference with media."
So fans can stop saying the organization just needs to move Nelson to the tackle position. Where does this leave the Colts then? In draft mode.
There is only one left tackle on the market this year that is both young and productive. That’s Jaguars left tackle, Cam Robinson. It would be smart for the Jaguars to extend one of the better tackles in football to protect quarterback, Trevor Lawrence.
This leaves Indy to find a replacement in the draft or via trade. Before the 2021 season started, Indianapolis made a move to send a 6th round pick to the Eagles for Matt Pryor. Pryor has worked out often better than Fisher or any other tackle that played in that spot. He could be a stop-gap until we are able to fill this position.
Look towards the tackles from Oklahoma to fill some much-needed holes on the offensive line. Both Tyrese Robinson and Erik Swenson could be drafted in rounds 3-5.
