The NFL draft can be a stressful time for general managers, especially for one like Indianapolis Colts’ Chris Ballard, who has earned a reputation as one of the league’s best drafters.

But even during those stressful times in the draft room, there are chances to lighten the mood. This happens every year like clockwork with Ballard and current Detriot Lions senior personnel executive John Dorsey, who will prank call his protege while the Colts are on the clock.

Ballard, as he typically does, tell Dorsey, “we’re working.”

Ballard and Dorsey grew close during their years with the Kansas City Chiefs. Dorsey was the general manager from 2013-2016 while Ballard worked as the director of player personnel (2013-2014) and director of football operations (2015-2016).

Ballard and the Colts will be back at the draft on Friday night for Day 2 but will only have one pick coming at No. 54 overall.
