In a draft season where everything points to this year finally being the year that the Indianapolis Colts go the young quarterback route, there’s only thing that could break the hearts of the fan base; the team doesn’t select a QB in the first round.
Whether that means the team traded back or didn’t like the QBs at #4 and decided to draft best available, shockwaves would be felt across the state of Indiana.
Of course, by not taking a QB with the 4th pick, perhaps the Colts would still select a quarterback prospect later in the draft.
Multiple teams reportedly have Hendon Hooker “over” Will Levis and Anthony Richardson on their Draft boards.

That prospect, however, would likely not start right away and still put the Colts in the same bottom of the AFC South barrel they were in last season.
Then again, perhaps that wouldn’t be the worst thing in the long run. After all, next year’s QB class is where the true franchise changing treasures reportedly await.
Despite this hypothetical, most Colts fans can PROBABLY rest easy that the team’s first selection will be used to draft a QB. I’ve made it clear where I stand on the Richardson vs Levis debate, (the sky is the limit if Shane Steichen can fix the accuracy issues of Anthony Richardson) but the rumors continue to swirl that the team is intrigued by the prospect from Kentucky.

Which one fits the Colts better? And is it a guarantee they actually take a quarterback in the first round?
