The draft doesn’t have many worthy first-round running backs available, if any. This is a position that could be filled for depth if one of the available free agent running backs slips through the Colts’ grasp. But I hope not, because if there’s anything a quarterback needs most, it’s a reliable rushing attack.
And at the quarterback position, the Colts ... are set.
Luck set the rookie passing yardage record last season and showed great maturity and presence in the pocket. This gem of a quarterback should lead the Colts for years to come and will be a force to be reckoned with, provided he has a line to protect him and skill players surrounding him.
Granted, Grigson believes in the scouting ability of the Colts’ personnel department and finding hidden gems with which to build. He has also proven, through the Vontae Davis trade, he will acquire what the team needs if the price is right. I like his ability to mix it up and build both through the draft and free agency.
Will Indianapolis address all of its offensive needs this season? Probably not. But as long as the Colts continue to move forward and build around what last season became a solid foundation, the sky’s the limit in the coming years.
