That and CB. The Colts did not solve the problem with Greg Toler and some UDFA's.
I'd disagree somewhat.
Firstly I don't think Van Noy is a good fit for the 3-4 (he's probably best suited to the 4-3 SLB). Even if he could successfully add the 20-25 lbs needed to play outside in the 3-4 I don't know whether that will be a position of need come next year's draft.
Similarly with Offensive Tackle. Anthony Castonzo wasn't great last year but has looked good in camp so far while Gosder Cherilus was just recently signed to a big money deal. So I doubt the team look there.
Guard and Center are options but there will be no Centers at this stage in the draft, and while there are some options at Guard that could be 1st Round picks I'm not fond of any of them.
I'm happier at Cornerback that you are but I could still see the Colts go for someone there. Toler is a very good Cornerback (he just can't stay healthy).
Personally I'd like see them look at someone like Loucheiz Purifoy.
