Indianapolis Colts may trade down in 2014 NFL Draft to get more picks

Thanks to their in-season addition of Trent Richardson, the Indianapolis Colts no longer have a first round pick in the 2014 NFL Draft.

That limits their ability to trade up (without moving an established player already on the roster) but that doesn't mean the Colts won't trade down.

Potentially looking to secure additional picks given they'll be without a first rounder, the Colts could be open to moving down in the draft, this according to the Indy Star.

Thanks to a pair of trades with Cleveland -- including the one that sent this year's first-rounder (No. 26 overall) to the Browns for Trent Richardson -- the Colts have just five picks in the seven rounds. I don't believe Grigson has the ammunition to move up from his spot in the second round (No. 59) to grab a player he covets, but won't be surprised if he trades down at some point to add a couple of picks. He has complete confidence in himself and his staff at finding value in the draft.

A draft day trade wouldn't be anything new for the Colts or general manager Ryan Grigson who has orchestrated deals in each of his first two seasons at the helm.

Indianapolis owns a single pick in the second, third, fifth, sixth and seventh rounds.
