Colts hold top-10 pick in 2023 NFL draft entering bye week


Following the historic fourth-quarter collapse Sunday night against the Dallas Cowboys (9-3), the Indianapolis Colts (4-8-1) will hold a top-10 selection in the 2023 NFL draft as they enter the bye week.

Though the Colts held the No. 14 pick going into Week 13, they got a lot of help from other teams around them. Going into Monday night's game, the Colts currently hold the No. 9 overall pick in 2023, according to Tankathon.

Should the New Orleans Saints (4-8) upset the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (5-6) on Monday night, the Colts will move up to the No. 8 overall pick.

Regardless, Indy will enter their bye week with a top-10 selection and the potential to move up even more considering the slate of games still on the schedule.

The Colts are set up for a very busy offseason. It all starts with the decision-makers as Jim Irsay must decide whether general manager Chris Ballard will return for another offseason. They also have to go through the process of hiring a new head coach.

After that, there are massive decisions with some big names. What will they do with quarterback Matt Ryan? Will some big-name players get traded? These questions simply scratch the surface of what's to come for the Colts this offseason.

Holding a top-10 pick is great in theory, but if the Colts want a shot at one of the top quarterback prospects, they are likely going to need to move up in the order. Despite the tie, the Colts essentially have the same record as the teams holding picks 5-9.

There's still a whole month of the season left, and the Colts will have their bye in Week 14, but it's very possible Indy will be knocking on the door of a top-five selection when the 2022 campaign is all said and done.
