Coming into the draft, the general consensus about the Colts was that they needed to concentrate on improving the blocking in front of quarterback Andrew Luck and just about everything involved with the defense.
Naturally, they took wide receiver Phillip Dorsett with their first-round pick. He joins T.Y. Hilton, Andre Johnson, Donte Moncrief and Duron Carter at wideout for the Colts, which should assure Luck of plenty of targets when he drops back to pass. Assuming, of course, that he has time to deliver the ball.
“This just shows that we stick to our guns when it comes to taking our best player on our board,” Grigson said, via the Indianapolis Star. “It’s not just party talk.”
The Colts have eight picks left, one in each round until picking twice in the sixth and seventh rounds, and Grigson and coach Chuck Pagano indicated on Thursday night that they’d be used to plug more pressing needs for the team. If they’re not able to do that, questions about adding to a strength in the first round will likely dog Grigson throughout next season.
