Colts keep options open as NFL Draft begins today


INDIANAPOLIS — • Trader Ryan — In every draft, there is usually a run on players at a particular position. This year it’s expected to be at quarterback. That could also work in Indianapolis’ favor, pushing players at other positions down farther into the draft.

 “I hope they take a ton of them [quarterbacks]. I hope they take 30 of them. That would be great. I hope the guys we have at the bottom of our board are going in one and two, I hope. Let’s hope that happens guys," Grigson said.  "I’ve been in draft rooms and it never changes any year I’m in one. That’s why we try like heck to be disciplined. We have our director of college scouting keep track of any moves on our board because we like to keep it as pure as possible and not get into a habit of moving guys all over the place. Then you end up not knowing which way is up.”

Richardson in spotlight  — The former Alabama running back knows that after a lackluster first year with the Colts, the spotlight will be squarely trained on him this coming season.

By trading the team’s first-round pick for Richardson, Grigson knows the pressure will be on from fans and the media to see much more production.

“I’ll say this guys, let’s just let the guy get in pads. This horse has been dead and buried for months. Trent’s in a great place right now. He’s working his tail off. That position group is as strong as any position group on this football team,” he stressed. “He’s got his work cut out for him. He knows it. Like at any position group, we expect big things out of him and everyone else at every position if we’re going to win a Super Bowl. Everyone’s got to play lights out.”

Who to watch for — Players who could be available for the Colts with the 59th overall pick on Friday include Northern Illinois safety Jimmie Ward, Colorado State center Weston Richburg, Clemson wide receiver Martavis Bryant and Indiana University wide receiver Cody Latimer.

Ward and Richburg appear to be the front-runners among most draft observers as potential picks for Indianapolis.
