The Indianapolis Colts won their first game with Andrew Luck under center since January 1, 2017, which was the regular season final for the team. Since then, Luck has battled back from a devastiting shoulder injury, one that looked to possibly end his playing career, as there was no real time table for his return.
In Luck, the Colts have one of the best quarterback in the league when healthy, and they made sure the brought in talent on the offensive line this past offseason to protect him. If Luck can stay healthy, the AFC South is wide open, and there is no reason he cannot return the team to the top of the division.
While they did bring in talent on the offensive line this past offseason, they should continue to do so with their first round pick next April. Quenton Nelson is going to be an elite guard in the league, but they still need help at the tackle position, which is where they should spend their first round selection on Trey Adams from Washington.
Adams is out for the season due to an injury, but he will be ready to go when it comes time for the NFL Draft. He has been one of the more talented offensive tackles in the Pac-12 for his entire career, and being so big, and so strong, he should be able to stay on the left side at the next level, where he can protect Luck’s blindside for at least the next five years.
