2. Jack Doyle
Colts TE Jack Doyle’s production in recent seasons hasn’t been up to par.
Fans in Indianapolis would hate to see Jack Doyle’s playing time reduced. After all, he’s given absolutely everything to the team over the last eight seasons. Putting their fandom aside, however, they’d be hard-pressed to endorse him being a full-time starter for another season.
The bottom line is that Doyle’s production has fallen off a cliff over the last couple of campaigns, including his phantom Pro Bowl nod from 2019, in which he logged just 43 receptions for 448 yards and four touchdowns. It’s duly noted that he was named as a replacement, but even Doyle’s biggest fans would admit that he didn’t deserve to make the trip to Hawaii.
To put the former undrafted talent’s regression into a larger perspective, he’s averaged a lowly 30.6 catches for 314.6 yards and three touchdowns across the last three seasons. He’s also missed time due to injury in two of those years, including appearing in just six games in 2018.
We love Doyle as much as the next Colts fan, but those aren’t starting-caliber numbers. In a perfect world, Indianapolis would draft a tight end and deploy that pick alongside Mo Alie-Cox as their two main pass catchers at the position.
As for Doyle, well, we’d see nothing wrong with him be utilized as a blocking specialist, as he’s still very much elite in that department.
