The Indianapolis Colts didn't consult a huge draft board this year, despite having six of the first 135 picks last month.
Chris Ballard says the team has steadily shrunk the size of their draft board over the course of his tenure.
"I'd say this year we had 170 players on the board which is way down from where it was before," he said. "I think last year we were at 220, I can't even remember the number from my first year. But yeah, it makes it easier to navigate when you have fewer names that you know fit what you want. I think when we really get it right, and we get it down to about 125, 150, that's when we'll have really honed down exactly what a Colt is for our schemes. And not only from a player perspective, how he's going to fit on the team, but also from a character perspective."
