Colts Draft Preview

The Colts have made some moves this off-season and now they prepare for the NFL Draft in two weeks. They don't have a first round pick after the Trent Richardson trade. What are they looking for in rounds two through seven?

Indianapolis Colts
2014 draft picks:
2nd round (59), 3(90), 5(166), 6(203), 7(232)

The Colts won 11 games in Andrew Luck's second season and the future looks oh so bright. There are not many quarterbacks in the history of the NFL that have seen this kind of success in two years. Luck has shown he's already an elite signal caller and now it's time to build around him and beef up the Indy defense.

Remember, the Colts don't have a first round selection because they traded for running back Trent Richardson. It looks like the Browns got the better of the deal but it's only one season. Lets see what the former Alabama standout can do with an off-season and training camp with Indy.

1. Defensive Backs
The Colts need to address the backend of their secondary both at cornerback and safety. They need to find a starter at corner and draft a safety, maybe two.

2. Linebacker
D'Qwell Jackson is a nice veteran free agent signee for Indy. He will certainly bring leadership and stability to the linebacking corps. They could use a young body on the inside and would love to upgrade the outside linebacker spot with someone that can get after the quarterback in their defensive scheme.

3. Offensive Guard
The Colts have had some turnover at the guard position and should look to solidify the middle of their offensive front. As things stand right now they only have five draft picks but I would anticipate one of those being used here.

Hakeem Nicks (WR)
Phil Costa (C)
Arthur Jones (DL)
