Colts in wait-and-see mode for tonight’s NFL draft

INDIANAPOLIS — As the 2013 NFL draft gets underway tonight at Radio City Music Hall in New York City, the Indianapolis Colts are continuing their wait-and-see stance in regard to the first-round pick.

The draft begins at 8 p.m. — televised by the NFL Network and ESPN — with the Kansas City Chiefs making the night’s first selection. Teams will have 10 minutes to make their decisions during the first round. Indianapolis will have the 24th overall pick in the first round.

There will be only one round tonight. The second and third rounds are scheduled for Friday, beginning at 6:30 p.m. with seven minutes allotted per pick in the second round and five minutes allowed in the third. The final four rounds are slated to begin at noon Saturday with four minutes between selections.

As it stands now, Indianapolis does not have a second-round pick. It was traded to Miami last fall in exchange for veteran cornerback Vontae Davis. But second-year general manager Ryan Grigson has nut ruled out the possibility of trading down from the first round if the Colts aren’t satisfied with the players available.

“If there’s not a player sitting there at 24 that the room is not excited about and we’re not high-fiving and things like that and we’re not even doing a little fist bump, we probably shouldn’t take that guy,” Grigson admitted last week.

“We’re going to probably look to trade out if there’s a player there we feel is just OK. We want players at that spot, especially in the first round, that are going to substantially help us get to our goal.”

Indianapolis has six overall draft picks to use: first round (24th overall), third round (86th), fourth round (121st), sixth round (192nd) and two in the seventh round (230th and 254th).

The Colts have only one compensatory pick, that coming with the team’s second selection in the seventh round. It’s the final pick of the draft, giving Indianapolis the Mr. Irrelevant selection for the second year in a row.

Compensatory picks are awarded to NFL teams that lose more or better compensatory free agents than it acquires the previous year. The number of picks a team may receive equals the net loss of compensatory free agents up to a maximum of four.

“I like having that pick. I feel like that’s still a spot in the draft. It’s very relevant to us, that pick. We hope to get a player there who has starter traits, just like we would at any other spot,” Grigson said.

Indianapolis drafted former Northern Illinois quarterback Chandler Harnish with the final pick of the 2012 draft.
