Happy NFL Draft Day everyone! The 1st round will begin at 8:00 PM Eastern Time on both the NFL Network and ESPN (or SKY Sports at 1:30 BST for all the Colts fans in the United Kingdom). The 2nd and third rounds will begin on Friday at 6:30 Eastern time, and they’ll finish with rounds 4-7 starting at noon Eastern on Saturday. Indianapolis will be picking 24th in rounds 1,3,4,6, and 7, as well as the 254th and final pick in the draft. The Colts’ draft picks will be introduced by former Colt Left Tackle and three-time Pro Bowler Tarik Glenn, a well-deserved honor and a classy move by the organization.
Yesterday, a few current Colts spoke with the media about the draft among other things, and Running Back Vick Ballard and Quarterback Andrew Luck gave their accounts of what draft day was like from opposite ends of the spectrum. Luck was picked first overall and knew, as most fans did, where he was going to play. “In my case, I sort of knew what was going to happen,” he said. “That maybe took a little bit of the anxiety, apprehension out of it. It is still very, very exciting. For all of the guys in New York, it’s fun. For all of the guys at home, or at school, or wherever they might be, it’s a very interesting day.”
