(CTN News) – A report has emerged that the Indianapolis Colts are set to select Will Levis in the 2023 NFL Draft if he is available. However, Chris Ballard denies this claim.
It will be revealed on Thursday which quarterback prospect the Indianapolis Colts have selected as their franchise quarterback.
The speculation about which quarterbacks Indianapolis is interested in will, however, continue until that moment arrives.
In the days leading up to the NFL draft, some reporters believe that they have a good sense of which direction the Colts will take.
A number of reports have surfaced in the last few weeks regarding Indianapolis’ interest in Will Levis. It was reported by ESPN’s Matt Miller that Indy prefers Levis over Anthony Richardson because he is more likely to be available right away.
Moreover, Peter Schrager reported that after releasing his mock draft, he was advised not to sleep on Will Levis and the Colts.
Levis is so “intrigued” that the Colts don’t know what they’ll do if he’s not selected. As a result, it seems that Will Levis will be the only option available to Indy when it comes to QB.
There is a possibility that Indianapolis will either select another position at No. 4 or trade back if he is not available by the time the draft begins.
However, Chris Ballard has vehemently denied these reports. It is amusing to Ballard that reporters think they know what the Colts are planning.
There is no truth to the report that the Colts are only interested in Will Levis, according to Chris Ballard
At Ballard’s pre-draft press conference, he stated that he had seen reports that Indy was targeting only one player, which Ballard denied. A team like Indianapolis that will pick fourth, has to wait until the draft to determine how things will unfold and then react appropriately.
It is this part that is really important. Since the Colts will pick fourth, they will not have the opportunity to lock in on a specific target.
Indy was expected to be deciding between Will Levis and Anthony Richardson at the No. 4 spot, but that was not the case. There is, however, a chance that Levis may end up going as early as number two if everything goes according to plan.
In the end, no one knows what will happen until it actually happens on draft night, so it is impossible to predict what will happen. Chris Ballard, a spokesman for the Indianapolis Colts, is adamant that reporters are totally unaware of what the team has planned.
