Left Tackle: Taylor Moton
Moton played right tackle last year for the Colts, but they should be willing to either move him over and pay him like a left tackle or flip Braden Smith over to the left, because Moton was stellar in 2020. If Carolina doesn’t franchise tag him, Indianapolis needs to meet with Moton’s crew as soon as possible.
Moton came into the league a bit raw, but he has since exceeded all expectations after getting picked near the end of the second round. With his ability to become a quality pass blocker now firmly established, Moton should earn top dollar this offseason.
How could Taylor Moton help the Colts?
Rather than go through with the silly idea of moving Quenton Nelson from guard — where he has been a First Team All-Pro in each of the last three seasons — to tackle, the Colts can use their cap to outbid anyone else interested in bringing the hulking tackle on board for the next few years.
Moton is trending upward, meaning the Colts could add ANOTHER potential Pro Bowler to an already stacked roster. Look for Indianapolis to make a run at Moton if he somehow doesn’t end up in Carolina again.
