The 15 best draft picks in Indianapolis Colts history
Marshall Faulk is a Hall of Fame running back and one of the best running backs to ever play in the NFL. However, he is only 13th on this list because of his short stint with Indianapolis.
After an impressive career at San Diego State, Faulk was drafted second-overall by Indianapolis in the 1994 Draft. He transitioned to the NFL and became an immediate impact player.
In his first season, Faulk ran for 1,282 yards and 11 touchdowns and had 522 receiving yards and one additional touchdown. He also made the Pro Bowl as a rookie.
Faulk returned to the Pro Bowl in his second season after having over 1,500 all-purpose yards for the second year in a row.
He’d make the Pro Bowl again in 1998, his fifth and final year in Indianapolis. Following that season, instead of paying Faulk a new contract, Indy traded him to the Rams.
Faulk took his career to new heights with the Greatest Show on Turf and the Colts drafted another great running back as they built around their young quarterback.
