The 2022 NFL Draft is a month away and the Indianapolis Colts must make sure they don’t make these common mistakes.
The Indianapolis Colts are preparing for the 2022 NFL Draft and they are set up pretty well to address the team’s needs and field a quality team next season.
Indy is entering the draft without a first-round pick but it does have seven total picks over the last two days of draft weekend. With Chris Ballard’s history of trading around, the Colts are likely to gather up more picks with draft-day trades.
Indianapolis is in a great position to address its needs. The team was able to figure out the quarterback position and edge-rushing problem by making big trades for Matt Ryan and Yannick Ngakoue.
The game plan for the Colts should be simple. They know the primary positions to address are receiver, left tackle, corner, and tight end.
Indy’s need at receiver is obvious and this is the draft class to address it. There are also several corners and left tackles in the draft that should be available for Indy through the early rounds and Indy has already been getting familiar with tight ends.
Even with an obvious game plan, it’s still easy to make common draft mistakes. Indy must do its best to not fall into those traps. Here are 3 things the Colts must avoid doing in this year’s draft.
