Netting more picks does wonders for Chris Ballard and the Indianapolis Colts here. While Indy did bring in DeForest Buckner, the work for the defensive line isn’t completely finished. Denico Autry, who is projected to start next to Buckner, is a free agent after the 2020 season.
Bringing in Davon Hamilton would be excellent for the defense. Hamilton plays a lot of nose tackle and 1-technique as a space eater in the run game, showing great power and hand usage. He can win with a bull rush but needs time to develop as a pass rusher. Having Hamilton eat space could free up Buckner to get more opportunities to get to the quarterback.
Double dipping at wide receiver needs to happen for this team, especially with T.Y. Hilton’s contract up after the 2020 season. Aiyuk and Campbell represent speed guys with great RAC ability, so finding a foil to them might be beneficial.
That’s where Chase Claypool comes in. Claypool put on a show at the combine, running an insane 4.42 40 yard dash at 238 pounds. He fits in that size/speed mold at wide receiver, with a great catch radius and good hands to succeed down the field. Claypool doesn’t have much of a developed route tree, but his ability to win in jump ball spots, combined with burst after the catch, gives quarterback Philip Rivers a version of Vincent Jackson and Mike Williams from his time with the Chargers.
