Draft day is upon us. Speculations and rumors have been running wild, but you never know what Chris Ballard will end up doing in the war room. The Colts are so close to Super Bowl contention, and there is a strong possibility that this Draft could be the one to put them over that hump. Ballard and his scouts know what direction the Colts need to go and what positions still need to be filled. The only problem is that the NFL Draft, like Ballard, is also very unpredictable. You may be getting ready to fill out your card to snag your guy only to hear Roger Goodell announce from the TV that another team just took him the pick before you. This leaves you scrambling to find a new guy while also trying to remain cool and not pick the wrong one. Luckily they keep big boards in the war room, so they always know where they want to go next. And I’ve done something similar.

I’ve compiled a big board of the top 100 players the Colts should look at for the Draft and sorted them by position to make it much easier to comprehend. I’ve also gone ahead and included where I believe these players will be projected to go: this will give you a better idea of when to watch for them to be drafted by the Colts or by another team. I have left out the top ten or so players in the Draft, as there is a low chance the Colts will obtain those prospects.

Sorted by position, the top positions that could potentially use a new starter:

KEY
ER = Early Round
MR = Mid-Round
LR = Late Round
UD = Undrafted
