    Too early to say definitively. Pretty much any position but QB or TE basically, focus on CB, WR, NT, and OL.

    I'd balance between whatever best available talent is left and a pressing need. Hopefully there's a convergence like this last draft.
    There are two types of quarterbacks in the league: Those whom over time, the league figures out ... and those who figure out the league.

    CB or OL. But it also depends on which free agents we sign. We'll have $30 million or so to spend. Does the draft come before free agency? I don't remember.

    Isn't it a little early to start thinking about that since they haven't played a game yet. But since you bring it up. Offensive linemen and more players that fit the 3-4. That could include a corner back...... ...

    I wouldn't hold my breath about "Jimmy" investing in any free agents except the marginal ones they use to fill out the team..... ...

    It is certainly early to start thinking about this but I expect the Colts to take the best player available outside of a QB. They seemed to fill out a board ranking the players and pick the highest ranking player on their board once it came their turn to pick this past April. I expect Grigson and co. to do the same next April.

    With that said, offensive linemen, a nose tackle, and a cornerback are likely to be the biggest areas of need. That doesn't mean you draft on need though. I don't know what positions are deep and which ones aren't in the 2013 draft but if they are faced with having to choose a player who fills a need vs a player who is superior but plays a position of strength I expect them to take the superior player. Plus you can find contributors throughout the draft so even if you don't get help at a certain position early on in the draft you stand a chance to be able to find some talent in that spot in the later rounds.

    I'd like them to draft 4th or 5th.
    Don't ask Marvin Harrison what he did during the bye week. "Batman never told where the Bat Cave is," he explained.

    It depends. David Amerson (CB) or Star Lotulelei (DL) would be the best case scenarios.

    It is awful early to think of the draft. I would think that the college season is still yet to unfold and there might be someone not noticed until they play this year in college . I would also like to see how the season folds out for the Colts. My guess would be DB, WR or NT. POssibly OL if it is an obvious choice. It all depends on who the best available on defense is at our position in the draft. I wouldn't mind seeing more talent on the defense so possibly going with defense in the first couple of rounds trying to get a cover corner or beef in the NT spot. Talent always trumps that though if a super talented WR drops to us. Reggie is not gonna be around forever.

    yup...too early...just like it's too early to predict how the team is going to do over the next 5 years.

    Biggest Need: CB, OL
    Secondary Needs: LB (just not sold on all our LBs), WR (would love just 1 tall fast receiver to replace Wayne)

    Hopefully the Colts get another top 5 pick.

    Just have to wait and see. Not sure who is expected to be bad this year.
    Lance + Starting SG = Awesome

    Now really free Lance!
