Having passed on making a bid on a player in the Supplemental Draft, the Colts have made it clear they like the players in the secondary.

The Broncos have an extra selection in the fifth round of the 2019 NFL Draft thanks to the Trevor Siemian trade, but now, do not have extra picks on day one or two of the 2019 Draft or any compensatory picks coming. No players were selected in the last two supplemental drafts.

That trend is likely to change on Wednesday at 1 p.m. with five talented prospects throwing their respective hats into the National Football League ring. On Supplemental Draft Day, all 32 teams decide whether or not they will place blind bids on any of the prospects available.

Three other players were eligible for the supplemental draft: Mississippi State Bulldogs safety Brandon Bryant, Grand Valley State Lakers running back Martayveus Carter and Oregon State Beavers linebacker Bright Ugwoegbu.

The Colts will be part of the first group along with the Cleveland Browns (0-16), New York Giants (3-13), Houston Texans (4-12), New York Jets (5-11), Denver Broncos (5-11), Chicago Bears (5-11), Tampa Bay Buccaneers (5-11), San Francisco 49ers (6-10), Miami Dolphins (6-10) and Oakland Raiders (6-10).
