The Indianapolis Colts’ turnaround under first-year head coach Frank Reich was pretty amazing. General manager Chris Ballard deserves a ton of credit for turning in this nearly a-laughing-stock team back into a playoff one. Offensive guard Quenton Nelson is outstanding, and there are plenty of pieces on the defense to suggest this group will take a massive leap forward in 2019.
While another wide receiver to pair with T.Y. Hilton should be a priority, there isn’t quite the same value at No. 26 after many of the top-tier targets have already gone.
Instead, Ballard can continue building that defense. Mississippi State defensive tackle Jeffery Simmons is a player often seen in the first half of Round 1. His stock has slipped a bit, but that doesn’t make him a bad choice this late in the round.
Especially considering how much a player like Simmons can beef up the Colts defensive interior.
