The Pro Football Writers of America named its 2020 PFWA ‘All-NFL’ and ‘All-AFC’ teams on Monday, and the Indianapolis Colts were well-represented on both standout squads respectively after the franchise’s successful 11-5 season:

Among the ‘All-NFL team’ representing the Horseshoe were 3x First-Team All-Pro offensive guard Quenton Nelson, 2x NFL All-Pro defensive tackle DeForest Buckner, and All-Pro special teamer George Odum.
Joining them on the ‘All-AFC’ squad were 3x All-Pro linebacker Darius Leonard and All-Pro center Ryan Kelly.
The Colts have a total of five different players on the two teams collectively, and it shows the type of talent that general manager Chris Ballard and his scouting department continue to collect and develop on both sides of the football.
While the Colts fell short of their ultimate goal of winning a Super Bowl championship, it’s a well-rounded team with a strong core whose future continues to be very bright.
