The Indianapolis Colts aren’t currently set to select a top rookie until the 42nd overall pick of the 2022 NFL Draft, which is on ‘Day 2’ during Friday evening (7 PM EST).

That being, there are a number of highly touted wide receiver prospects—in what’s been regarded as a very deep class this year, and such a selection would certainly fill a critical positional need for the Colts going forward.

With that being said, here are the ‘four horseman’ that could pique the Colts’ potential interest. Each talented wideout would provide veteran quarterback Matt Ryan another weapon in the passing game and another playmaker offensively collectively for Indy.

For any one of them, you may not be hard pressed to see Indianapolis general manager Chris Ballard call in his draft card rather quickly:
