It has been an eventful springtime for the Indianapolis Colts and GM Chris Ballard. The trade for struggling Eagles' Carson Wentz to answer the Quarterback question was the banner move of the offseason, along with addressing the rest of the offense with the re-signing of T.Y. Hilton and the acquisition of veteran tackle Eric Fisher. The Colts made a conscientious effort to get better offensively.

But it was defense that ruled the draft. Three of Indianapolis' first four picks were on the defensive side of the ball, looking to continue to build the talent to complement star players like DeForest Buckner and Darius Leonard. Kwity Paye with the first-round selection seemed a head-scratching pick at the time, with Guard Alijah Vera-Tucker and plenty other positions still brimming with talent on the draft board, but Paye seems to be showing good early returns and a readiness to learn under the team's vets.

Other picks like Dayo Odeyingbo and Shawn Davis will likely be depth pieces while they develop, but Ballard clearly prioritized development of the young defense for sustainable success in the future. We'll see if it pays off.

For this particular mock draft, it's going to be an Offensive Tackle. The Fisher signing could bring good stability to the offensive line, but if the 30-year-old can't stay healthy after his Achilles injury, he may be finished with football following the season. Miami's Zion Nelson is definitely someone to keep an eye on this college football season with his high upside and athleticism. .

COLTS HISTORICAL DRAFT PICKS

Reach/Value (R/V) Explained
The difference between where a player is selected in the NFL draft versus where the player was listed on the final Drafttek Big Board for the season in question.
Example: A player who was listed at #50 on the Big Board and was selected at #35 will be a "Reach" of -15. Alternately, a player listed at #35 on the Big Board who was selected at #50 is a +15 "Value".

Simply put: a positive number is a Value pick, a negative number is a Reach.
