Round 1 of the 2022 NFL Draft is in the books and while the Indianapolis Colts didn’t have a first round pick they still seemingly came out ahead as the Tennessee Titans sent wide receiver A.J. Brown to the Philadelphia Eagles, there was only one quarterback selected in the first 32 picks (Kenny Pickett to the Steelers), a slew of wide receivers went off the board and it was the first draft in 31 years where no offensive player was selected in the first five picks.
The action continues Friday night with Rounds 2 and 3, with the Colts holding the 42nd and 73rd overall picks tonight, both from Washington. There is still a ton of talent on the board, especially at some key positions the Colts hope to address in the draft, including wide receiver, offensive line and secondary help. On Friday’s edition of Kevin & Query, the guys were joined by The Athletic‘s Zak Keefer to get his thoughts on Thursday’s first round, the A.J. Brown trade, if he thinks the Colts could actually draft a quarterback and a whole lot more.
It all depends on where they rank [Desmond] Ridder. If they have him as a second-round grade and they really like him and no one else is close, in terms of players that are available, then they’ll take Ridder. – The Athletic‘s Zak Keefer on the Colts potentially drafting a quarterback with the 42nd overall pick
The guys also debated the potential wide receivers that could be available for the Colts in the second and third round, the importance of the fifth-year option these days and GM Chris Ballard’s thought process during the draft.
