The Indianapolis Colts did a great job on Day 2 of the 2019 NFL Draft, trading down and creating more picks. Grading their selections.

The Indianapolis Colts had four picks on the second day of the 2019 NFL Draft, and they did a focused job of adding high-end athletes at positions of need. They grabbed a playmaking wide receiver, a physical cornerback, a stout edge rusher and a speedy linebacker to pair with Darius Leonard. Chris Ballard made multiple trades to acquire more picks. He said he loves picks, and he’s staying true to that mantra.

The Colts have six picks in the remaining four rounds of the draft. They’ve set themselves up to move around if they have to, but they can also stay put thanks to the quality work that they’ve done on the second day.

Some fans are questioning Ballard’s work, but they questioned him last year as well when he picked Leonard and guard Quenton Nelson. Both picks worked out, and it further enforces the thought process of “In Ballard We Trust”.

The final average grade for the Colts worked out pretty well. Considering they’ve been one of the best-run franchises over the past few seasons, it’s not surprising to realize that. With the moves they made on Day 2, it will be exciting to see how Day 3 shakes out when it’s all said and done. This draft is one the Colts will definitely be winners in.

With that, let’s hand out grades to all four of Indianapolis’ Day 2 picks.
