View image | When the Colts traded a first round pick in September 2013 to Cleveland to acquire Trent Richardson they had higher hopes then where they are today. The idea of placing Andrew Luck and Trent Richardson side by side for years to come was a brilliant strategy, but as time would move along it would become apparent that we might not see this duo much...

Way too early: First round mock draft for the Indianapolis Colts

For a team that just made the AFC Championship in their third year of a rebuild the Indianapolis Colts still have some holes to fill on both sides of the ball.
