We've been waiting all night for the Indianapolis Colts to pick… and we'll have to wait just a little bit longer. The Colts have traded their 61st overall pick in the second round to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The Colts will now pick 65th overall (the first pick in the third round).
According to the Tampa Bay Times' Rick Stroud, the teams will swap fourth round picks. And while that might not seem like much, that's actually a significant jump for the Colts, moving from 128 to 109 overall.

This seems like a pretty good move for the Colts. They move back only four spots from 61 to 65, and in addition they move up 19 spots in the fourth round too. The value at pick number 65 should be pretty similar to number 61, and then they make a significant move in the fourth round. There's not much to dislike from the Colts in this trade.
But that also means that we'll have to wait just a few minutes longer for the Colts to pick. Hang in there.
Here are the remaining Colts' picks in the draft:
Second Round - 61st overall pick

- Seventh Round - 244th overall pick (from the Dallas Cowboys)
- Seventh Round - 255th overall pick (compensatory pick)
Here are the Colts remaining needs (in no particular order):
- Running Back
- Offensive Lineman
- Defensive Lineman
- Inside Linebacker
- Pass Rusher
