There are a lot of elite OT's in the draft, but a lot of teams are looking for an OT early and the quality drops off bigtime after the best handful (MtD has 6 1st round graded OTs, 0 2nd and 3rd round graded OTs. Walter Football ranks 4 OTs as top 10 picks)

*=First round grade.

If a 1st round caliber OT falls to them, in the late first it'll will be hard to pass him up. A 1st round rookie OT could start at guard as most Colts OTs do early on, or with a good performance in camp push Diem back to the inside or onto the bench/street.
