The Indianapolis Colts haven’t had much luck, no pun intended, at the quarterback position since Andrew Luck suddenly retired from the NFL a few years ago.
It has been a revolving door of veteran quarterbacks in Indianapolis in the post-Luck era in Indianapolis, as the team hasn’t been able to get it right under center.
After another disappointing stint with a quarterback past his prime in Matt Ryan, the Colts seem to be looking for their future face of the franchise, and unless they land Lamar Jackson in a trade, that will likely have to come in the form of a rookie in the NFL Draft.
The Colts currently own the fourth overall pick in the upcoming 2023 NFL Draft, with four intriguing quarterback prospects available.
According to ESPN’s Matt Miller via Dov Kleiman, the Colts currently have Kentucky’s Will Levis ahead of Florida’s Anthony Richardson on their draft board.

Miller added that the current chatter is that Indy isn't expected to trade up to get a QB, not even one spot, and the more ready-now Levis will be the pick. pic.twitter.com/Eik8zEouKG

The consensus as of right now in the NFL seems to be that Bryce Young out of Alabama is the top quarterback prospect, followed by Ohio State’s C.J. Stroud, with Richardson and Levis coming in at three and four.
The Carolina Panthers are expected to take a quarterback at No. 1 after they made a blockbuster trade with the Chicago Bears.
Young will likely go to the Panthers, while Stroud could go to the Houston Texans at No. 2, leaving Levis and Richardson available at No. 4 with the Arizona Cardinals already having star quarterback Kyler Murray under center.
The Colts will have a tough decision, and they’ll surprise everyone if they go with Levis.NEXT: Deforest Buckner Comments On Colts' Rebuilding Plans
