While the Colts won’t draft solely based on need, there are some areas on the roster that need to be addressed with some of their nine selections. Some positions might even be candidates to double dip in the draft.

The Colts have Malik Hooker returning for his third season. They re-signed Clayton Geathers and Matthias Farley to one-year deals while George Odum rounds out the depth in the defensive backfield. In terms of pure need, this position tops the list.

Adding a safety on Day 2 might be in the cards, and there is some solid talent to be had in that area. Finding a potential running mate for Hooker will go a long way, especially if Geathers continues to deal with injuries.

The Colts value speed, ball skills and tackling ability in their safeties. Working in mostly two-high looks, there are plenty of options to consider.

Potential targets: Chauncey Gardner-Johnson, Tayor Rapp, Johnathan Abram, Amani Hooker
