Colts RB Marlon Mack underwent offseason surgery to repair a torn labrum in his shoulder, GM Chris Ballard revealed on SiriusXM radio. Mack reportedly played his "entire" rookie season with the injury. Ballard expects Mack to be a full participant in training camp, although it's unclear what he'll be able to do before then. Any missed time is bad news for a 2nd-year player looking to capture a bigger role in 2018. The Colts cut ties with Frank Gore this offseason but added Nyheim Hines (4th round) and Jordan Wilkins (5th) in the draft. This backfield is trending toward a committee, but exactly how the team is planning to divvy touches will be worth monitoring closely this summer.

The Colts picked Ole Miss RB Jordan Wilkins in Round 6 of the Draft, 2 rounds after they selected RB Nyheim Hines. Wilkins stands bigger at 6'1 and 216 pounds. He posted a 4.53-second 40-yard dash, a 72nd-percentile SPARQ score and a 102.6 speed score. Wilkins totaled only 130 touches over his 1st 2 seasons and spent 2016 on academic suspension. But he tallied a 155-1,011-9 rushing line with 26 catches for 241 more yards as a senior. Wilkins averaged 6.3 yards per rush and 10.1 per reception across his college career. He'll be worth watching in what should be a wide-open backfield competition.

The Colts selected North Carolina State RB Nyheim Hines in the 4th round of the 2018 NFL Draft. Hines blazed a 4.38-second 40 time at the Combine and plays just as fast. He averaged 5.4 yards per carry and 10.5 yards per catch over his 3-year college career, while also scoring 3 times in the return game. Hines goes just 5’8, 198 pounds and never reached 200 carries in a season at N.C. State. But he caught 20+ balls in all 3 campaigns, including 43 in 2016. He has the look of at least a pass-catching, change-of-pace asset as a pro, with the potential to emerge as a committee back on the Gio Bernard-Duke Johnson spectrum. He joins Marlon Mack in a relatively wide-open Colts backfield. Mack looks like the early favorite to lead the team in carries, but there’s plenty of room for Hines to carve out a significant role.
