Indianapolis Colts Have Seven Picks In 2018 NFL Draft

Barring any moves, the Indianapolis Colts will have seven picks — one in each round — in the 2018 NFL Draft. Where will the Colts be picking in each round?


INDIANAPOLIS —We all know by now that the Indianapolis Colts will have all sorts of terrific options at their disposal when they go on the clock with the No. 3-overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft.

With a pick that high up, you're generally expecting to be receiving an instant game-changer either on offense or defense (and there are quite a few of those to choose from who are making the move from the college to the professional ranks this year).

And, of course, with that No. 3 pick being so valuable, there's always a chance Colts general manager Chris Ballard could explore the possibility of trading down. If recent history is any indication, there could be several teams willing to give up quite a bit just to move into that spot.

But what about the rest of the 2018 NFL Draft? We know that, as of now, the Colts have seven picks this year — one in each round. And while the Colts will pick third in the first round, they will alternate from there between picking third and fourth in subsequent rounds with the Houston Texans, who also finished with a 4-12 record in 2017.

So let's take a quick look at each of the Colts' picks in the 2018 NFL Draft, with a few notes on each:
