Indianapolis Colts Draft Report

Round 2 Pick 34 - Michael Pittman

Grade: A-

Love this pick for the Colts. They had one of the worst receiving cores last year and have lacked depth at the position. Pittman is the perfect compliment to TY Hilton. Pittman is 6' 4'' and can be a great red-zone target for Phillip Rivers. He is a ball winner and will win contested catches and he is sure-handed as well as he had 5 drops from 176 catchable balls in his career.

Round 2 Pick 41 - Jonathan Taylor

Grade: A-

Taylor landed in the perfect spot. He is going to be running behind one of the best offensive lines in the NFL. Taylor is can plant his foot and cut in the other direction or can beat you by running right over you. He is hard to bring down and has great breakaway speed as well. The only knock is that he is fumble prone, losing 15 of 18 fumbles at Wisconsin. Taylor and Mack could be one of the better 1-2 punches in the league and also with Mack set to hit free agency in 2021, the Colts may have found their running back for the future.

Round 3 Pick 85 - Julian Blackmon

Grade: B-

It has been rumored that the Colts have been interested in moving Malik Hooker, and they also run a lot of 3 safety sets, so drafting a fourth safety for depth/starting purposes was a big need. Blackmon has good size and speed and is very disciplined in coverage. However, Blackmon tore his ACL late in the season, so his recovery wouldn't allow him to have an impact till a couple of games into the season.

Round 4 Pick 122 - QB Jacob Eason

Grade: B+

Eason was projected to be a first-rounder by some analysts but slipped to the fourth. Eason is a project of a pick and will have a chance to sit and learn from one of the greats in Phillip Rivers. He is a big arm and great deep throw accuracy along with the throwing speed to squeeze it between levels of defenders.

Round 5 Pick 149 - Danny Pinter

Grade: B+

Pinter is athletic and versatile. He can play either the guard or tackle position which adds depth to the Colts offensive line. Even though the Colts starters didn't miss a single game in 2019, this will provide insurance if something was to happen to one of their starting guards or tackles.

Round 6 Pick 193 - Rob Windsor

Grade: B-

This is another great depth signing to the defensive line. Windsor is quick off the line of scrimmage and has great strength. He could be a solid rotational/backup player if he makes the roster.

Round 6 Pick 211 - Isaiah Rodgers

Grade: B-

After trading Quincy Wilson to the Jets, the Colts selected Rodgers to build up depth at the position. Rodgers has exceptional speed that can help him keep up with some of the fastest receivers in the league, but his lack of size and strength will cause him to lose battles to bigger receivers.

Round 6 Pick 212 - Dezmon Patmon

Grade: B

Patmon is a similar build to Pittman, but faster. He is 6' 4'' and will win a majority of contested and 50-50 balls thrown his way. A great depth draft pick who could have a big impact in the red zone.

Round 6 Pick 213 - Jordan Glasgow

Grade: B-

Glasgow is a great tackler and gets off blocks very quickly. He could be a big addition to the Colts special teams play.
