The Colts could draft any position outside of quarterback, so that allows for a level of flexibility. At the same time, there's quality to be had at No. 24. Aaron Rodgers, Steven Jackson, Ed Reed and Dez Bryant have all been drafted No. 24 overall.

If there isn't an early quarterback run, there could be teams looking to get back into the first round before quarterback-needy organizations come around a second time. A team with a late first-round pick may want to slide up a few spots and dangle a second-rounder knowing the Colts sent theirs to the Miami Dolphins for Vontae Davis. Those are simply two of several possibilities.

This is just one of many moving parts as the draft approaches tonight.
