RTC: A day of watching for the Colts
Here’s your draft day Reading the Coverage for the Indianapolis Colts, who do not have a first-round pick:
--Stephen Holder of the Indianapolis Star writes about the Colts general manager Ryan Grigson will spend the first day of the draft watching and not trying to figure out who they’ll select with the No. 26 pick since they don’t have it anymore. The Cleveland Browns have the No. 26 pick courtesy of the trade for running back Trent Richardson.
--The Star has a photo gallery highlighting some of the Colts' second-round picks. The list includes safety Bob Sanders, tight end Coby Fleener and cornerback Tim Jennings.
--Conrad Brunner of 1070thefan.com writes about how teams looking to draft a quarterback, the most critical position on offense, could possibly lead to a player of need falling to the Colts by the time they pick at No. 59.
--Craig Kelley of Colts.com writes about draft-day trades that have worked in the Colts’ favor. The Colts traded up to the third round to acquire receiver T.Y. Hilton in 2012. Hilton has made Grigson look pretty smart for moving up. Hilton has 132 receptions for 1,944 yards and 12 touchdowns in his first two seasons.
