Indianapolis Colts: B

The Colts had the easiest pick in the draft with Andrew Luck No. 1 overall. Luck (above) is every bit as good as his hype and while it may take a while for the team to build talent around him, he'll prove a Pro Bowl-caliber passer within his first three years in the league. After Luck, general manager Ryan Grigson set out to build a roster around their new quarterback and did so by adding a dynamic seam threat he's already familiar with -- Coby Fleener, a more traditional tight end in Dwayne Allen a round later and speedy wideouts T.Y Hilton and Lavon Brazill. The Colts didn't do enough to adjust to the changes that will have to be made to a defense switching from the 4-3 to the 3-4. But in adding run-stuffing nose guard Josh Chapman with the first pick of the fifth round, they may have secured the most valuable component to that transition.
