3 Colts veterans who’ll benefit from Indy’s 2022 draft
Jonathan Taylor will benefit from Colts’ draft
Jonathan Taylor also had to be happy with the outcome of Indy’s draft. He’s already having a lot of success in the NFL, but now he’ll get help generating offense for Indy.
Last season, the Colts’ offense was Jonathan Taylor. When he was having a productive day, so was the offense. Indianapolis was 9-1 in games where Taylor ran for more than 100 yards and 0-7 in games he was below the century mark.
Taylor did a great job carrying the load and dominated against stacked boxes when everyone in the stadium knew he was going to get the ball. However, it’s probably better if he doesn’t have to carry an entire offense like that.
With the addition of young pass-catching weapons like Alec Pierce, Jelani Woods, and Andrew Ogletree, Taylor’s days of carrying the offense should be numbered.
He certainly should still be a dominant back that puts up a lot of numbers, but these rookies should help the Colts’ offense to be more dynamic.
That will help Taylor and Indianapolis win more games but it should also bode well for the longevity of Jonathan Taylor’s career. If he isn’t asked to carry an entire offense every game, Indy will be able to keep him fresh for many years.
