INDIANAPOLIS – Two years ago, the Indianapolis Colts were at front and center in the NFL Draft world when they held the top selection in 2012.

Andrew Luck made sure they wouldn’t pick that high again anytime soon–and a trade for Trent Richardson in 2013 made sure the Colts didn’t pick at all in the first round this year.

With only five total draft picks, General Manager Ryan Grigson didn’t make a trade to move into the first round Thursday night as the annual selection festivities started at Radio City Music Hall in New York City.

Grigson won’t get his chance to draft till the 59th pick of the second round on Friday night and then again in the third round with the 90th selection–unless one or both of the picks are dealt. The Colts will have selections in the fifth, sixth and seventh rounds on Saturday.

The biggest news for Indianapolis football fans actually came from owner Jim Irsay, who returned to Twitter around 11 p.m. to thank fans for their support since his arrest in March and his subsequent stay at a medical facility.

Here’s what the Colts’ owner had to say on Twitter via his account @JimIrsay:

Earlier this week it was announced that the Colts’ owner will attend the NFL Owners Meetings May 19-21 in Atlanta to help Indianapolis’ pitch to host the Super Bowl in 2018.
