Before we get into this next pick for the Indianapolis Colts, let’s talk about a trade back. Chris Ballard only has seven picks in the 2020 NFL Draft at this point, so a trade back seems very likely. Let’s explore this scenario once again.

Colts Get
60th pick
92nd pick
Ravens Get
44th pick

It’s been a popular trade in recent mocks, since it makes sense for both sides. The Colts want to move back if possible to get more selections, and since the Ravens are a major contender, they’d happily move up 16 spots to get a good future starter in the second round. Plus, they still have another second round pick.

Jaylon Johnson
Cornerback Utah

The secondary for Indianapolis looks very good right now. Kenny Moore has been great, and he’s locked in to a starting role. The Colts also signed both Xavier Rhodes and T.J. Carrie in free agency, and have Rock Ya-Sin and Marvel Tell waiting in the wings. So why take another one here? It’s all about value.

Jaylon Johnson has plenty of potential as a corner and could likely come in and start for Indianapolis right away. Johnson is very physical near the line of scrimmage and will thrive in a press-man scheme. His mirror and match ability is also impressive, and he has the frame to hang with bigger receivers.
