There has been a lot of talk about whether Washington should or could trade up for a QB next year. I think it is obvious that they will need a new QB, so the question remains, will one be available where they end up picking?
Regarding the Colts, I only see them in the market if they are in position to get Luck. The writing is on the wall - even with Manning this team isn't good enough anymore. They can't spend a first rounder on a QB and still hope to win with the current team. If they can get Luck, it says here that they do a full rebuild. Luck is drafted. Wayne or Mathis is allowed to walk for the compensatory pick they would yield. The other is franchised and traded. Manning and Freeney are also traded. Polian has a long record of moving on from players, including HOF caliber guys. If he can get Luck, he'll do what he did when they acquired Manning and do a complete rebuild.
So 6 teams in the market for a top QB. Available QB's for those six teams? Manning, Carson Palmer, Barkley, Luck, and Landry Jones. So 5 players for six teams. One of those teams could decide their current QB needs another year, maybe the Browns. Washington may well be picking after all five of those teams. So to acquire their next QB, Washington just needs to be able to outbid one of those teams. I think the odds are good they they can do that, and next year one of those 5 players will be the starting QB for your Washington Redskins.
