If the Colts are going to grab a top offensive tackle in the draft they are going to have to trade up to get him.
Jason Spriggs and Germain Ifedi are good prospects, but not at 18th overall. So if Indianapolis can’t bolster their offensive line, then they need to strengthen their defense.
The best defensive player available also happens to fill a need for the Colts. Inside linebacker Reggie Ragland manned the middle of the defense in Alabama and was absolutely critical in their National Championship campaign.
He won’t keep Andrew Luck clean in the pocket, but he’ll help reduce the amount of points he needs to put up to produce a win.
