The 15 best draft picks in Indianapolis Colts history
Obviously, the best pick in Indianapolis history is Peyton Manning. The quarterback is the greatest player in franchise history and one of the greatest in the NFL.
Going back to the beginning, Manning dominated in college at Tennessee but there was a debate on if he should’ve been the No.1 overall pick.
The decision came down to Manning and Ryan Leaf and Indy ultimately chose Manning. Fortunately for the Colts, it worked out pretty well for them.
Manning went on to have a storied career, led Indianapolis to the Super Bowl, and is considered one of the best players to ever play in the NFL.
During his 14 seasons in Indy, 13 where he actually played, Manning led the league in passing yards twice and passing touchdowns three times.
He also was selected to 11 Pro Bowls during his time in Indianapolis and was a five-time First-Team All-Pro.
Before moving on to Denver to finish his career, Manning played in 208 games for Indianapolis and passed for 54,828 yards and 399 touchdowns. He finished his career as the best Colts player of all time.
