The 2020 NFL Draft has come to a close, and the Indianapolis Colts ended up with one of the best 2020 draft classes in the league. Here’s an analysis of every Colts offensive draft pick and a projection for their role in the 2020 NFL season.
The Colts put together a top-tier draft class this past weekend. They addressed all of the holes in their roster and added depth in many key places.
There was a ton of speculation whether or not the Colts were going to trade back into the first round to select QB Jordan Love, however, GM Chris Ballard and the rest of the front office stayed back in the 2nd round and were able to select two first-round prospects in the 2nd.
The team also drafted a QB in Washington product Jacob Eason, who has been linked to the Colts since the beginning of the offseason. Eason was widely regarded as a 2nd round pick, but the Colts were able to select Eason at the end of the 4th round.
Philip Rivers needed some more weapons to throw to and he got that in this draft. The team grabbed two wide receivers, including one with their very first pick of the draft. They want this offense to be more dangerous than it was a year ago.
Finally, the team was able to draft more players to beef up the secondary and the offense. Let’s take a look at every Colts offensive draft pick and project what their roles will be in 2020.
