Depth Of Draft Made It Easy For Colts To Trade Out Of First Round 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Fri Apr 26, 2019 12:21 pm

The Indianapolis Colts have three second-round picks to use on Friday night after trading out of the first round of this year\'s NFL Draft.

They traded the 26th pick to the Washington Redskins for the 46th pick this year and a 2020 second-rounder.

\"I\'m pretty patient, I don\'t panic – we don\'t panic,\" Chris Ballard said. \"We stay true to what we\'re looking at on the board, and we make a decision.\"

Ballard said the decision to move out of the first round was easy because of how deep this year\'s class looks.

\"Depth? That\'s why we made the move,\" he said. \"We thought the ability of the three [second-round picks], that\'s the strength of how we had it lined up. ...

\"I do not see the same depth that there was last year at the top of the draft. I think I told a couple of y\'all this a few weeks ago where between 11, 12, 15, all the way to 70, I think it\'s a matter of flavor, who you like and who you want. We got good players last year at the start of the second round. We think we will do it again.\"
