It's a sad thing to say but I think Zack Moss will be traded to a running back-needy team. To fill his role, the Colts could draft Isaiah Davis from South Dakota State. Standing at 6'0" and weighing 220 pounds. As a Senior in high school, Davis rushed for 2,283 yards and 45 touchdowns on just 250 carries.

During his freshman year in college, the season was canceled due to COVID-19 restrictions. His sophomore year in college he rushed for 818 yards on 96 carries and in his sophomore year along with 10 touchdowns. His monster yard per carry average carried over to the next years. In 2022 he gained 1,451 yards and 11 touchdowns on just 249 carries and in 2023 he gained 1,491 yards with 17 scores on 220 carries and then caught 43 passes for 369 yards over that previous two-year stretch.

His strength for the Colts would be the 1-2 punch. Davis is a burly runner and can be a downhill runner and be the bruiser the Colts are missing. With Jonathan Taylor being the speed guy, the Colts are missing the bruiser. Davis' strength come on second down where we need that big bruiser and can be a great catcher.

Despite his size, he's super shifty and can make some great cuts. On the flip side, his weaknesses are lack of patience and just one-cutting up the field and his third-down blocking is suspect at best. However, all of these things are coachable and for a 5th-round pick, Davis would be a steal.
