Last night, Colts fans were forced to watch longingly as fan bases around the league celebrate their teams’ selections in the first round of the NFL Draft.
That’s a wrap on Day 1 of the 2022 NFL Draft! ✅

They even saw Purdue’s own stud defensive end George Karlaftis join up with my Kansas City Chiefs.

Now, however, the Colts and their fans finally get their moment to make a selection with (barring a trade up or down) the 42nd Pick in the 2022 NFL Draft.
Finally. 🤩 pic.twitter.com/Ebyzh50h8E

For me, the only thing that would be a surprise is if the team selected a quarterback at #42. Matt Ryan has made it clear that he intends to still play for multiple years.
I suppose I could be talked into it if Ballard and company are truly in love with a QB, but otherwise they would be doing a disservice to Ryan and the fanbase to not get him a receiver or some added protection at Left Tackle.
The Titans just traded AJ Brown last night and suddenly the Colts are the clear favorites to win the AFC South.

This is not a Super Bowl contender but, if my division suddenly fell in my lap for the taking, I’d be making draft choices that help me win the South NOW.
We closed the week on The Dan Dakich Show by talking about the AFC South Title chances and more with former Colts offensive lineman and Colts Radio Network’s Joe Reitz.
Joe also shared why he’s confident the team will win the South and why he feels that a key starter may already be in the building.
Listen to Dan’s chat with Joe Reitz below and don’t miss The Dan Dakich Show, weekdays 12-3pm, on The Fan.
