2. Garrett Wilson, WR, Ohio State
Outside of a seventh-round flier, the Colts didn’t address the wide receiver position in the draft, and questions still abound pertaining to this group’s potential. How much does TY Hilton have left in the tank? Is Michael Pittman Jr. ready for the increased workload that will likely be coming his way?
One way they can answer those questions would be selecting a potential No. 1 target in Wilson, who is competing with Chris Olave for catches at Ohio State. With the speed to get open and athletic ability to reel off big plays with regularity, Wilson could change the shape of their passing game.
How would Garrett Wilson help the Colts?
Wilson is a speedster that has looked every bit like the 5-star talent he was promised to be when he arrived at Ohio State. Wilson has the catch radius needed to secure all the tough catches he needs to, and his ability to turn into a runner is one of his most impressive traits. He was born to play in a Reich offense.
Wilson is the type of No. 1 target Wentz or whoever ends up starting next year can lean on. With premium athletic ability, Wilson should be able to become an immediate starter in Indy’s offense and eventually succeed Hilton as the main man in Indianapolis’ passing game within his first few seasons.
