Indianapolis Colts hold the No. 4 pick, and plenty more, in the 2023 NFL Draft

The Indianapolis Colts will play a prominent role in the 2023 NFL Draft. They lost their final seven games of the 2022 season to finish with a 4-12-1 record and the No. 4 overall pick.

The Colts' biggest need is believed to be quarterback. Matt Ryan, Sam Ehlinger and Nick Foles played QB for the Colts in 2022. Quarterbacks getting the biggest buzz for potential early picks include Alabama's Bryce Young, Ohio State's C.J. Stroud, Florida's Anthony Richardson and Kentucky's Will Levis.

Indianapolis will also take a serious look at offensive linemen, cornerbacks, pass rushers and wide receivers. According to Eric Edholm of "The interior offensive line could be improved. Even with 2023 free agent Parris Campbell’s breakout season, wide receiver is one or two playmakers shy of ideal."
