Colts podcast: Will Chris Ballard focus the draft on the offense?

Do free agent signings like Gilmore indicate the Colts will focus on offense for their 2022 draft class?

Syndication: Indianapolis Matt Kryger/IndyStar

Chris Ballard was patient in free agency but he wasn’t sitting still. After trading for guys like Matt Ryan and Yannick Ngakoue and bringing in new guys Rodney McLeod and Stephon Gilmore, the Colts GM has quietly rebuilt a notable portion of the roster. This is a team that still has some clear needs and with the NFL draft less than a week away, it’s fair to wonder if the GM sees things the same way that fans do.

We discuss this on the latest podcast. Topics include:

  • How the free agent moves impact the draft strategy going in
  • Whether discussions with T.Y. Hilton will impact what the Colts do in the draft
  • Whether or not the team truly believes in guys like Danny Pinter and Matt Pryor on the offensive line
  • The consensus that wide receiver is a big need
  • Whether or not QB should still be on the board for the Colts with Matt Ryan turning 37 this year
