NFL Draft Rumors: Indianapolis Colts could draft offensive lineman with first pick


The NFL Draft is just around the corner which means the Indianapolis Colts are among the teams at the back of the draft looking at what they can do to dip into the deep pool of players entering the league. Unlike most teams, the Colts don’t have a first round pick, as they traded it to the Cleveland Browns for Trent Richardson at the beginning of last season.

But just because they’re not armed with a first round pick doesn’t mean the Colts are going to sulk or make dramatic moves. They’re not expected to trade up and according to Mike Wells from ESPN, the team may even do something even more unexciting and draft an offensive lineman with their first pick.

Per ESPN.com:

General manager Ryan Grigson is going to take the best-player-available approach with the draft. He basically said that Friday. So don’t be surprised if the Colts end up selecting an offensive lineman in the draft.

It’s really unfair to call an offensive lineman an unexciting pick, as the Colts have a need there and typically unexciting picks turn out great. The Colts made a splash with Hakeem Nicks in free agency and will likely hang back and draft the best of whatever comes to them this May.
