Chris Ballard and the Colts front office officially gave up on the Quincy Wilson era, trading him for the 211th pick in the 2020 NFL Draft and selecting CB Isaiah Rodgers from the University of Massachusetts. Rodgers is cousins with Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and flew under the radar as he didn’t play for marquee program.

Notably, Rodgers played on defense and on special teams — a primary reason Wilson was traded away.

Rodgers finished his college career with 187 tackles, 9.5 tackles for loss, 11 interceptions — including 4 as a senior, and 34 passes defensed to go with 4 forced fumbles and 4 fumble recoveries. He returned 53 kicks in 2019 for 1295 yards, a 24.4 yard per return average. He also returned 11 punts in 2019 for 120 yards, a 10.9 yards per return average, and 1 punt return touchdown.

He is 5’10 1/2” and weighs 174 lbs., measured with a 76 inch wing span. Recorded a 40” vertical, 114” long jump, 6.9 sec 3-cone, 4.25 20-yard shuttle. He might be a burner as his Pro Day recorded 40-yard dash times were 4.31 and 4.28 seconds. Video below.
