The Indianapolis Colts headed into the 2020 NFL Draft with no picks in the first round, and that remained true as they passed on trading into the first round as some suspected they may attempt to do. On Day 2, the Colts did make a trade, but it wasn’t the path typical of GM Chris Ballard.
At the end of the day, the Colts did indeed make three picks, grabbing Michael Pittman at No. 34 overall, they moved up to No. 41 from 44 overall to take Wisconsin running back Jonathan Taylor, and added Julian Blackmon (DB) with the No. 85 overall selection after trading back from No. 75 overall (with the Lions).
Matt Danely is joined by the boys from Stampede Radio (Chris Blystone, Chris Shepherd, and Jim Campbell) to discuss their thoughts on how the first round played out, their reactions on the Colts picks on Day 2 of the NFL Draft, as well as some of what we all have witnessed with the ‘virtual’ aspect of the draft process thus far, including some interesting Roger Goodell takes.
The Colts, for now, still hold four more picks for Day three (Rounds 4-7), and have some clear areas of need that the guys discuss as well, as the Colts draft haul rounds into place.
