The Indianapolis Colts have been in search of a new franchise quarterback since Andrew Luck retired in 2018.
In the four years following Luck’s departure, the Colts have started seven different quarterbacks.
However, many believe that the Colts have an interest in drafting one of the top prospects in April’s draft.
The Colts currently hold the fourth overall pick and have been conducting extensive research regarding which quarterback they will draft.
Recently, Albert Breer has reported that the Colts will independently work with three different prospects, including Will Levis.
The Colts brass will work out Kentucky QB Will Levis on Thursday in Lexington, per sources. Fair amount of travel for Chris Ballard and Shane Steichen this week. https://t.co/a6aV4xKNx0

According to Breer’s reporting, the Colts have already worked out C.J. Stroud and Bryce Young.
The two of them have been seen working together in California, and the team was able to meet with both prospects in the same location.
It appears that the team is now traveling to Kentucky to meet with Levis, where he has been training and preparing for the draft.
Levis was a highly touted prospect after his 2021 season at Kentucky, where he threw for 2,826 yards, 24 touchdowns, and 13 interceptions.
He took a slight dip in production during the 2022 season, throwing for 2,406 yards, 19 touchdowns, and 10 interceptions.
However, that dip has been largely attributed to the lack of weapons that he had in his final season at Kentucky.
Teams across the league have shown mixed interest in Levis, with many having a second or third-round grade on him.
With the draft just around the corner, quarterback-needy teams like the Colts will continue their evaluations in hopes of finding their next franchise superstar.
