The Colts selected Wisconsin RB Jonathan Taylor with the 41st overall pick of the 2020 NFL Draft. Taylor is as strong a rushing prospect as we’ve seen come into the league in recent memory. He ran for 1,977 yards as a true freshman, 2,194 yards as a sophomore and 2,003 yards in his 2019 junior campaign. Taylor won the Doak Walker Award as the nation’s top RB in both of the last 2 years and holds the NCAA record with an average of 2,058 rushing yards per season. He leaves Wisconsin with a big 6.7 yards-per-carry average and 50 total rushing scores. Taylor also blew up the Combine, running a 4.39-second 40-yard dash at 226 pounds and earning a 90th percentile SPARQ (athleticism) score. The knocks: ball-security (18 career fumbles) and pass-catching ability (42 career catches). We’ve seen plenty of RBs improve their ball-security as pros, though. And Taylor took a big step forward as a receiver this past year, posting a 26-252-5 line and ranking 14th among draft-eligible RBs in yards per route run — notably ahead of D’Andre Swift and Clyde Edwards-Helaire. We’d expect Taylor to pretty quickly beat out Marlon Mack to become the Colts’ lead ball-carrier. We’ll see what kind of receiving role he can capture, but he’ll be running behind a strong offensive line.
