The Colts GM delivered a stark reality check to fans with aspirations of acquiring Marvin Harrison Jr.

Witnessing Marvin Harrison Jr. follow in his father’s footsteps by joining the Colts would undoubtedly be a thrilling spectacle. However, Colts General Manager Chris Ballard delivered a sobering reality check to fans harboring such hopes.

Despite the unpredictable nature of the NFL draft, the Colts currently possess the 15th overall pick. With Harrison expected to be selected within the top six picks, Ballard unequivocally expressed his stance on the possibility of trading up for the highly coveted wide receiver prospect.

During a guest appearance on the Rich Eisen Show, Ballard responded to inquiries about the Colts potentially acquiring Harrison Jr. with a touch of humor. “Sure there is when I go into fantasyland,” he quipped. While acknowledging Harrison’s talent, Ballard emphasized the abundance of quality players available in the draft.

The prospect of the Colts maneuvering to secure Harrison Jr. would require a substantial effort, surpassing the value typically associated with draft picks. Convincing two teams to agree to a trade, particularly for a prospect as enticing as Harrison Jr., presents a formidable challenge.

Ballard emphasized the necessity of another team’s willingness to engage in a trade and highlighted the difficulty of executing such a move, given his preference for conservatism in draft strategy. While the Colts remain in pursuit of a dynamic wide receiver, the likelihood of acquiring Harrison Jr. seems remote.

As the draft approaches, fans should temper their expectations regarding Harrison’s potential arrival in Indianapolis, focusing instead on the team’s strategies with their current draft position.
