The Colts made their rookie class sing in front of the entire roster.

While we won’t brazenly claim that hazing is prevalent in professional sports, it goes without saying that most rookies are put through the ringer by their new teammates. Whether (harmless) pranks are made at their expense or they are instructed to carry equipment to and from practices, there’s no shortage of antics veterans can pull to make incoming NFL freshman feel anything but at home, and the Colts youngsters were subjected to their moment in the sun this week.

Indy’s 2020 Draft class was forced to sing in front of the entire roster and coaching staff, and it turned out … well …

As you might have expected, the talent on display — for the most part — left a lot to be desired, and that’s exactly what made the nearly five-minute long clip so hilarious.

Before we dive into the hilarity of these performances, can we please talk about Julian Blackmon’s pipes? Forget fulfilling his dream of becoming an NFL player, the third-round safety should seek out a career in music. We could only imagine Blackmon’s reaction once he found out he could showcase his hidden talent to the ENTIRE team.

Elsewhere, fans in Indianapolis can sleep easy tonight knowing that 2020 second-rounders Jonathan Taylor and Michael Pittman Jr. won’t be spurning the franchise for a journey on famed signing competition show “American Idol” anytime soon.

The two rookies put forth a truly forgettable display with the microphone. Let’s hope they make up for it by putting on a show during the next practice at training camp. That’s really the only thing Taylor and Pittman can do to erase their performances from our memory.

In all seriousness, credit to the Colts for providing fans with some hilarious content as they count down the days until the start of the 2020 season.

If nothing else, this clip should leave fans with a newfound respect for these rookies, as it couldn’t have been easy singing in front of people they met at the start of camp last week. We love a mini-Colts “Hard Knocks,” don’t we, folks?
