Bill Polian: Indianapolis Colts Could Draft QB

Tuesday November 15th, 2011

Indianapolis Colts vice chairman Bill Polian said on Monday night that the Colts could draft a quarterback in next April’s NFL draft, according to

"The bottom line is that if the right person is there, and it has to be the right person, then now is the time to make that choice," Polian said on his weekly radio show. "Peyton [Manning] and I have spoken about that, and he's OK with that."

The Colts currently sit in last place in the NFL with an 0-10 record. Manning has sat out the entire season with a neck injury and his replacement for much of the season has been Curtis Painter, who has thrown for just 1,315 yards, five touchdowns and seven interceptions for a 67.4 QB rating.
