Colts draft TE Daniel Bellinger in the fifth round

As far as position of need goes, tight end ranks top three for the Colts. Coming into the NFL at 6-foot-5 and just a bit over 250 pounds, Daniel Bellinger could add to a position that is severely lacking right now for Indianapolis.

The Colts drafted Kylen Granson last year in the fourth round. As of right now, Mo Alie-Cox and Granson are the two tight ends that would take the majority of the snaps for Indy next season.

Daniel Bellinger was very underused in college, but with his size and potential, Indy should look to add him at this point in the Draft. Bellinger would add much-needed depth at tight end for Indianapolis.

Colts draft RB Brian Robinson Jr. in the fifth round

Indianapolis drafting a running back late in the draft is not as crazy as some people might think. Jonathan Taylor played outstanding last year and he will still carry a huge load for this Colts’ offense.

However, most NFL teams today have at least three reliable running backs, and right now Indy only has two. Robinson could add more depth to a position of strength for the team.

In his senior season at Alabama, Robinson rushed for 1,343 yards and 14 touchdowns. He also had 296 yards receiving. Robinson’s ability to run the ball, pass protect, and catch the ball out of the backfield could further help the Colts’ offense.

Brian Robinson Jr. is also a guy that could be great in any third-down situation for Indy. His versatility would be hard to pass on at this point in the Draft for Indianapolis.
