This is the time of the offseason when the Indianapolis Colts tend to do their best work. Since Chris Ballard was hired as the general manager, the Colts have used the draft as their primary source to acquire players. All-Pros Jonathan Taylor, Quenton Nelson, and Darius Leonard are just some of the names the Colts have gotten through the draft. The Colts come into this year’s draft with a variety of needs still to address. The trade for Matt Ryan allows the Colts to kick the long-term quarterback question down the road a few more years, but the team still needs to add more weapons for him to throw to. Depth across the roster needs to be addressed as well. So, without further ado, here is my first 2022 Colts mock draft based on player fit and past tendencies from Ballard and the front office. You can get a more in-depth look at these prospects in the Indy Draft Guide at the link here or at the bottom of this mock draft.
