Indianapolis Colts 2017 Team Needs


Primary Needs: OT, RB, OLB

Secondary Needs: CB, DL, S


The biggest need for the Colts heading into the offseason was the need to rid themselves of Ryan Grigson, which they successfully did. Now the team should have a more professional atmosphere in which to operate. Unfortunately they still have a roster that is largely devoid of talent outside quarterback and offensive skill positions.


Free Agency Strategy: With $55 million in cap space and their top 4 pass rushing linebackers all headed towards free agency the Colts should be major players in the free agent market at that position. They need to add at least 2 veterans at the position. Given the dearth of talent at tackle in this year’s class the Colts might choose to sign a veteran at the position. A player like Matt Kalil makes sense on the left side, or any number of solid, but unspectacular right tackles.


Draft Strategy: Frank Gore might play again in 2017 for the team but his replacement needs to be found now. A strong running game would do more to help Andrew Luck than any other addition, and Dalvin Cook or Leonard Fournette  might be available in the first round making running back the smart choice as of now. A trade down into the 20’s for a shot at Carl Lawson, Tim Williams, or Takkarist McKinley also makes sense for the Colts. Ryan Anderson and Hasan Reddick could be second round options for Indianapolis, as could Curtis Samuel at running back.
