Colts Cast: Looking to the NFL Draft with Zach Hicks | Receivers

Zach Hicks and Matt Danely dive into the receivers from the 2019 NFL Draft class who could help the Colts take that next step

The Indianapolis Colts are preparing for a critical point in their roster rebuild and the 2019 NFL Draft may be the most important of Chris Ballard’s time in Indy to this point.

Today we continue our look at the team’s needs heading into the offseason, and now we move on to the receiver class.

This class of pass catchers is extremely fun and interesting to talk about. The class offers a deep field, with the potential for some of them to really break out at the next level, but at the current time, there aren’t too many that could be pegged as true game changers.

There are some big-bodied receivers, quick and quality route runners, as well as a handful with long speed to offer the deep threats that NFL teams just love to take a bit higher than they might otherwise be drafted. There is also an interesting group of slot receivers who could offer a needed aspect to the Colts’ offense that they have yet to have under Frank Reich.

Zach Hicks joins Matt Danely once again today, and the two discuss D.K. Metcalf, Kelvin Harmon, N’Keal Harry, Marquise Brown, Andy Isabella, Deebo Samuel, Riley Ridley and many more as they discuss the top of the position, the depth, the overrated and underrated talent, those who can offer possession traits as well as those who can complement T.Y. Hilton as a deep threat.

The Colts need a legit No. 2 WR in one way or another for the 2019 season. Whether or not that becomes Deon Cain, a free agent acquisition, or one of these talents out of the draft, but they also truly need a viable slot weapon. This could quite easily be one of the most improved positions in 2019 if things go well.
