When writing this post I had the intention of saying the Colts were going for a WR but with the way I see it now Grigson purposely put himself in the position to draft BEST AVAILABLE, and heres why.
Last off season was a year of uncertainty, and most of us thought it would take years to get back above .500; Especially with the mass exodus of starters. But Grigson surprised us all in that draft. He picked up players that not only were low key, but work horses:
He Drafted immediate starters or someone with immense upside. Of our first 7 picks only Josh Chapman and LaVon Brazill didn't win a starting job (chapman for injury reasons). Side note*(Fleener had the starting job week one and lost it due to injury.)
The Same can be said with our current crop of Free Agents
DT Ricky Jean Francois
CB Greg Toler
LB Erik Walden
WR Darrius Heyward Bey
Aside from Walden (who's there to set the edge and stop the run, not pass rush) this group of Free Agents gives the team solid starters/depth and a more respectable Defense; something Grigson was adamant about doing since day one.
Grigs focused on Offense last year in the draft and built it into our strength again. He's likely not going to bet the farm on any player this year and we could possibly see some trading back because he's possibly targeting 30 or so players knowing the talent margin between 10 picks isn't that staggering. But one thing I did notice is who at pick 24 would start over one of our players?
