Also we've proven several times that a good RB can be found later in the draft. JMO, but this trade was a mistake by the Colts.
The Colts obviously think TR is special. If he is then the Colts solved the RB situation for the next 6-8 yrs.
As far as low 1st rd picks go (Which is what the Colts should have) they couldn't have found anybody better than Richardson.
I've heard that this class is deep at OL and DB's.
If a player falls into the late 1st, early 2nd then you can bet Grigson will take the risk of trading a 2014 2nd and a 2015 2nd/3rd to move up and take the player that Grigson likes. I love risk takers and Grigson is slowly but surely putting the pieces in place to make the Colts legit SB contenders for yrs to come.
Watching how the Colts do business vs how the Texans do business makes me sad. LOL
