Colts GM has awesome quote about drafting a QB

Chris Ballard

The Indianapolis Colts will likely give strong consideration to drafting a quarterback this year, but there is no guarantee that pick will come in the first round. Colts general manager Chris Ballard reminded the media of that in hilarious fashion on Thursday.

Ballard was asked about the possibility of taking a quarterback with the 21st overall pick, and he expressed skepticism that a top QB will still be available then. He then challenged reporters to go back and look at every quarterback taken in the first round over the past 10 years. The GM said the only thing taking a QB in the first round would do is “get y’all off my a—.”

The man has a point.

The Colts want to bring back Philip Rivers next season, though it sounds like Rivers is undecided about playing. Indy also drafted former Washington star QB Jacob Eason in the fourth round last year, but Ballard wouldn’t even commit to him being the primary backup in 2021.

Teams usually start panicking in the first round and snatch up all of the top QBs, which is why Ballard hinted that the Colts may not be able to take a player at that position in Round 1. Unless, of course, he wants to get the media off his backside.
