The NFL Draft is just a few weeks away and teams are doing all of the last minute research needed to feel comfortable with selecting certain prospects. For the Colts, one position could still be in play come draft night.

Despite signing Philip Rivers this offseason and having Jacoby Brissett on the roster, the Colts could still be in the market to draft a quarterback in the early rounds.

According to NFL insider Matt Miller, that should be expected.

“With two picks in the second round, the Colts are still in position to draft a quarterback of the future. As one scout told me: ‘This team has no quarterback under contract for 2021. They’re drafting one.‘”

The Colts hold the No. 34 and No. 44 picks in the second-round. They could either use one of those to select a quarterback or package them together to try to move back in the first-round.

Jacob Eason, Jake Fromm, Jalen Hurts and Jordan Love have all been quarterbacks that the Colts have been rumored to be interested in, some more than others, are are all expected to go in the first two rounds.

Because neither Rivers or Brissett are under contract following next season, drafting a quarterback to learn the system from both would be an ideal situation.

No matter when it happens, look for the Colts to use one of their earlier picks on a quarterback.
