All depends of course but I wouldn’t hate any round beginning with 1

Round 4 or 5....   if we’re only talking quality depth. 
 

If we’re talking future starter, then Day 2....

Since we need to be looking for AC eventual replacement I say round 2 or 3.

I would think Rd 1-4 you’re looking at starters or players that would make a significant contribution.  Rd 5-7 you’re looking at projects or depth. Like anything else there may be fool’s gold and gems all around us. My opinion.

If you draft a starting tackle in R1, and move Smith inside, your depth includes Glow, a 2 year starter.  Elite OL, excellent depth across the board, and no need to panic when AC retires.  One of many potential strategies for the Colts in this years draft, but one that covers a lot ground.

With Castonzo re-signed for 2 years Ballard has basically given he and Dodds 2-3 drafts to find the next stud LT for the team. 2020 and 2021 if they have physically/mentally talented yet raw athlete they can mold found in rounds 4-7 OR 2022 draft the best LT they can in the 1st Round.

Before today, I would have said no later than round 2.  With the news today I think you can wait until rounds 4 or 5.

No later than rd 4 to add guard competition for Glow.
We don't have a bonafide backup LT most think, so rd 2-3 for that is likely.

Go depth this year, but I still think Braden can move to the left once AC does retire. Braden imo should get credit as well for the turn around of our line.

Agreed. He doesn’t get credit because people are too busy saying he needs to move back to RG despite grading out as one of the best RT’s in the league.

Day 3 is the earliest I am looking for it, if it is purely for depth with upside.

    • It is incredibly unlikely, I am still hoping that I will be able to get one of the packages but I wont know that until the 24th. 
    • I think Pascal showed last year he is reliable and a playmaker.  Campbell showed flashes, but still has a lot to prove and a need to stay healthy.  TY also needs to stay healthy after two years in a row with nagging injuries.   I'm pretty confident that Pittman is going to be solid, but you're right he needs to prove it before we get too excited.   And yes, interesting with the new PS rules (sounds like we can protect up to 4 players if they don't get claimed after being cut and before being placed on the PS), will be to see if we keep any of our young guys locked up.  I'm also intrigued given no pre-season games or intersquad practices (i.e., our coaching staff/FO will really be the only group of NFL personnel who will have gotten a chance to see the young guys perform against other NFL players).  That may benefit us with a guy like Patmon, and since no other team will have seen him perform, he may have a likelier chance of making it to the PS and being protected than a guy like Dulin who other NFL teams have seen on Sundays.   Anyway, just in TY, Campbell, Pascal and Pittman I am a lot more confident with our top 4 than I was going into any year since Reggie got hurt.    
    • As always, highlights are highlights. That said, he has an impressive burst, a knack for knowing when to move on from the blocking call, and a serious nose for more yards after contact. He has a lot of MJD in his game. 
    • He is a whole different order of threat than Mack.  I'll be very surprised if teams aren't focusing him by week 4 or so.  And if it wasn't for Mack I'd say he's a real good bet for ROY.  Still might be even with Mack sharing carries.
    • Sub par reading comprehension on my part.
