Running back might not feel like a need, but it very well could be

On the surface, this might sound like an absolutely asinine take. But, it makes sense when you think about it. Jonathan Taylor has struggled with injury concerns in recent seasons. There is no denying that. And, because the position sees guys fall off so quickly, that's something the Colts need to pay attention to.

We don't know what the future of Taylor holds. We would all like to hope that he's healthy now and can maintain good health going forward. But, for the sake of having a legitimate backup plan and in order to help take pressure off Taylor in effort to prolong his career, Indianapolis could have gone after one of several veteran running backs.

Now, they need to shift that focus to the draft and find a capable RB2. They don't currently have one on the roster. You can say whatever you want about Trey Sermon in his limited time last year, flashing a bit, but I'm not buying it. Evan Hull is hardly experienced. Tyler Goodson? Same story.

The Colts need help at the running back position. They need a guy who can come in and play meaningful snaps to compliment Taylor and take some pressure off him. Why not snag another former Wisconsin Badger in the middle rounds, like Braelon Allen?

Allen is the definition of a workhorse and between the two of them, he and Taylor could wear down defenses with ease.
