1. The only quarterback the Colts will take is Anthony Richardson

Any Bryce young, C.J. Stroud or Will Levis fans may not like this, but with the position this team is in, Anthony Richardson is the only option. Young appears to be coming off the board first to Carolina despite the Levis rumors, and Stroud is an option, but Richardson has much more raw talent here.

He has all the tools to succeed in an offense that still could use some help on the offensive line, and with a squad that needs receiver help. While he has had his ups and downs, he has shown he can win the big game with his outstanding performance against Utah.

His measurables are solid, and he can make all the throws that one needs to make at the next level. Other quarterbacks are either going to be gone, or need more time to get ready.

While there are other options in later rounds, Richardson has to be the quarterback off the board at four if Young is already taken, that is if they take a quarterback at all.

While the Colts will probably just take a quarterback, not trade down at all, and keep the status quo, anything can happen in the NFL Draft.
