Additionally, here's a reminder of the Colts' picks in this year's draft:

1st round, 18th overall pick

2nd round, 48th overall pick

3rd round, 82nd overall pick

4th round, 116th overall pick

5th round, 155th overall pick

7th round, 239th overall pick

As a note, the Colts' sixth round pick in this year's draft was sent to the Oakland Raiders last season in exchange for linebacker Sio Moore.  Though he didn't play a ton last year, he figures to be in the competition for the starting inside linebacker spot left vacant by Jerrell Freeman's departure, so it wasn't a bad use of a sixth round pick.

Consider this your open thread as we discuss the draft and await the Colts pick!
