Colts Draft 2021: Best Available Day 3 Options

The Colts used their first two picks in the 2021 NFL Draft on defensive lineman, selecting Michigan's Kwity Paye and Vanderbilt's Dayo Odeyingbo in the first and second round, respectively. Which top players will still be available for the Colts four selections on the final day of the draft?

INDIANAPOLIS -- The Colts doubled down on their defensive line Friday evening, picking Vanderbilt's Dayo Odeyingbo with the 54th selection in the 2021 NFL Draft.

Adding Odeyingbo came on the heels of the Colts using the 21st overall pick on Michigan defensive end Kwity Paye.

"The two young men we just took play the way we want to play, and that is with high effort and intensity," general manager Chris Ballard said. "They are going to be tremendous fits to the room and to the football team."

But who else could the Colts target with their final four picks in the 2021 NFL Draft, which are:

4th round, 127th overall

5th round, 165th overall

6th round, 206th overall

7th round, 248th overall
