Reunited and it feels so good. Colt’s head coach Frank Reich and Carson Wentz were reunited in Indianapolis for the 2021 season and beyond. The Eagles sent Wentz to Indy for a third round selection in 2021 and a conditional second round player in 2022.
The Colts, of course, hope that the Reich-Wentz reunion – Reich was Wentz’s offensive coordinator in 2016 and 2017 – will help advance Wentz’s career and give the Colts the true successor to Andrew Luck.
The Colts don’t have a lot of capital to work with in the 2021 NFL Draft. With just two picks in the first two rounds and a total of six picks, most of your heavy lifting needs to be done in Day 3 Draft Darts, with four picks in the last four rounds.
Here’s a full look at the Colts in the 2021 NFL Draft, including their list of picks, which will be updated when picks are made.

Colts NFL Draft Needs
- Left device: Anthony Castonzo’s resignation leaves a gaping hole in the left tackle and Carson Wentz is unlikely to be keen on the idea of playing behind another draining offensive line. Wentz had to grapple with being beaten up in Philly for his last two years. So don’t be surprised to see the Colts in the mix for offensive line aid.
- EDGE: DeForest Bruckner had just under a 10-sack season behind them last year and the Colts ended the year with 2 1/2 sacks per game. These are not bad numbers. However, the Colts are passport-free rusher Justin Houston, currently a free agent. Houston ended 2020 with eight sacks, the second most common on the team.
- Wide receiver: TY Hilton has signed a one-year contract with the Colts and has returned to Indianapolis on what appears to be one last attempt. Michael Pittman Jr. had a solid rookie year in 2021 but only got one touchdown. Carson Wentz is going to need help out there with a WR corps that is pretty thin.
