Despite not having a first-round pick, the Indianapolis Colts once again had a phenomenal draft under the leadership of general manager Chris Ballard. He initially sent the No. 13 overall pick to the San Francisco 49ers in exchange for defensive lineman DeForest Buckner. He’ll help the Colts’ pass rush right away.

Over the weekend, the Colts relentlessly attacked the draft board by selecting one promising offensive player after another. There are players who can help them win now and ones who could be part of a bright future in Indianapolis. Adding USC Trojans wide receiver Michael Pittman Jr. at No. 34 overall might end up being the steal of the draft. He’ll look great next to T.Y. Hilton in 2020.

Even though they already have Marlon Mack in the backfield, the Colts went out and used a third-round pick on one of the greatest running backs in college football history in Jonathan Taylor. The former Wisconsin Badgers standout won the Doak Walker Award twice and is one of the most prolific runners the college game has ever seen. He could be a huge boost to the Colts offense.

While the Colts are rolling with Philip Rivers in 2020, they made an underrated move in the fourth round to select former Washington Huskies quarterback Jacob Eason. The former five-star recruit coming out of Lake Stevens, Washington saw his draft stock plummet after an underwhelming college career, but he has the most powerful right arm to call Indianapolis home since Jeff George.
