The all-coulda-drafted team (pre-Dungy era)

Shoulda, Coulda, Woulda. Polian is the best in the league at drafting, but he, like everything else isn't perfect. Here's your chance to build a Super-Colts team that the Colts could have had.

In each group pick only one player or one player from a lower group from that year. The result is a entire team starters plus a few key reserves that the Colts could have had from their draft picks.

 

(It's a long list so I'm gonna make you jump for it)
