Bill Polian told the Indianapolis Star that the Indianapolis Colts may find their successor for Peyton Manning in this year’s NFL Draft.
“Quarterback’s an issue, probably not a front-burner issue, but an issue nonetheless because while Peyton’s not at the end of his career, it’s approaching faster than it has in the past,” Polian said. “I wouldn’t rule that out in the right situation.”
The Colts have already worked out two quarterbacks: Neveda’s Colin Kaepernick and TCU’s Andy Dalton.
However, rumors have said, like ESPN, that Indianapolis could be going for a quarterback in the first round! Manning had shown signs of struggle, possibly with age, but when it all goes down: he just didn’t have a good supporting cast.
If the Colts were to get a quarterback in the first round, they will most likely get a player like Jake Locker or Christian Ponder at that pick. However, I wouldn’t be too fond of this idea. It would be best going for a tackle at this round and then a guy like Kaepernick or Dalton, who are available most likely between rounds 2-4.
However, don’t be surprised though with a quarterback. Indianapolis could still get a tackle like Benjamin Ijalana from Villanova.
I guess we’ll see what happens. Very interesting here, though, none the less.
