With many of the top NFL free agents off of the board by the time the legal tampering period was over, we had to find who the Indianapolis Colts still had to pick from. Stay up to date with which players are available at positions that the Colts may be looking for right here:

Running Back

Available: Adrian Peterson, Charles Sims, Orleans Darkwa, Terrance West, Alfred Blue

Taken: Carlos Hyde (Browns), Jerick McKinnon (49ers), Dion Lewis (Titans), Rex Burkhead (Patriots), Thomas Rawls (Jets), Jeremy Hill (Patriots), Damien Williams (Chiefs), Zach Zenner (Lions), Mike Davis (Seahawks)

Wide Receiver

Available: Tyrell Williams (RFA), Cameron Meredith (RFA), Jeremy Maclin, Michael Floyd, Eric Decker, Dontrelle Inman

Colts Connections: The Colts have hosted Dontrelle Inman and Cameron Meredith

Taken: Michael Crabtree (Ravens), Paul Richardson (Redskins), Terrelle Pryor (Jets), Mike Wallace (Eagles), Donte Moncrief (Jaguars), Allen Hurns (Cowboys), Jordan Matthews (Patriots), Kendall Wright (Vikings), Taylor Gabriel (Bears), Bruce Ellington (Texans), Jordy Nelson (Raiders), Cody Latimer (Giants), Jaron Brown (Seahawks), Deonte Thompson (Cowboys), Brian Quick (Redskins), Brice Butler (Cardinals), Jeff Janis (Browns)

Offensive Line

Available: Austin Howard, Greg Robinson, Chris Clark, Michael Ola

Colts Connections: Howard has visited the Colts.

Taken: Weston Richburg (49ers), Justin Pugh (Cardinals), Mike Pouncey (Chargers), Josh Sitton (Dolphins), Cameron Fleming (Cowboys), Ryan Jensen (Buccaneers), D.J. Fluker (Seahawks), Jonathan Cooper (49ers), Quinton Spain (RFA) (Titans)

Edge Defender

Available: Robert Ayers, Benson Mayowa, Ryan Russell (RFA)

Colts Connections: Colts showed interest in Benson Mayowa

Taken: Shaq Barrett (RFA), Vinny Curry (Buccaneers), Adrian Clayborn (Patriots), Aaron Lynch (Bears), Barkevious Mingo (Seattle), Jerry Attaochu (49ers), Alex Okafor (Saints), Kony Ealy (Cowboys), Kareem Martin (Giants), Marcus Smith (Seattle)

Defensive Line

Available: David Irving (RFA), Bennie Logan, Jay Bromley, Datone Jones

Colts Connections: David Irving is a gap penetrating 4-3 defensive tackle who is familiar to Defensive Coordinator Matt Eberflus from his time in Dallas. He is a restricted free agent with a 2nd round tender. If the Colts wanted to bring him in, they could deal pick 49 and sign him away if the Cowboys don’t match the contract. This is less likely now since the Colts signed Denico Autry.

Taken: Sheldon Richardson (Vikings), Ndamukong Suh (Rams), Dontari Poe (Panthers), DaQuan Jones (Titans), Dominique Easley (Rams), Beau Allen (Buccaneers), Xavier Cooper (Jets)

Off-ball Linebacker

Taken: Preston Brown (Bengals), Avery Williamson (Jets), Todd Davis (Broncos), Zach Brown (Redskins), Tahir Whitehead (Raiders), Nigel Bradham (Eagles), Korey Toomer (49ers), Marquis Flowers (Patriots), Corey Nelson (Eagles), Emmanuel Lamur (Raiders), Will Compton (Titans), Kemal Ishmael (Falcons)

Gaines (Browns), Ross Cockrell (Panthers), Deshawn Shead (Lions), Terrance Mitchell (Browns). Marcus Cooper (Bears), Jaylen Watkins (Chargers)
