The Colts announced this morning on Twitter that they have made a huge trade for the upcoming 2018 NFL Draft:

The Colts don’t need a quarterback. The Jets do need a quarterback. Much like when the Titans traded the 1st pick to the Rams a couple of years ago, the Colts have the benefit of moving down and getting a bunch of picks. They get 3 picks in the 2018 draft (one first and two second round picks), and a second round pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. This will allow them to re-stock a roster that is pretty low on talent currently.

There wasn’t every really a thought that the Colts were going to pick a quarterback in this draft, but this gives a definitive answer on that. They must have plenty of faith in Andrew Luck’s ability to be ready for the 2018 season and beyond.

The AFC South is going to be a fun division to watch over the next few years.
