The Colts made a huge move on both sides of the ball in the offseason, and continued to be very bold during the draft. The theme of their draft is their top two picks- proof positive they are giving Rivers every opportunity to win this year.
Pittman is the ultimate counter to the skillset of Hilton and Campbell. Where those two guys offer elite speed, Pittman is a tall, powerful receiver that will feast on the open field provided by their speedsters.
Taylor might not make it to a second contract, this guy has been used extensively in college. And the Colts couldn’t care less about that. In fact, could see the Colts running him until his legs fall off as long as Rivers is there. A powerful, fast runner, Taylor showed that he is a smooth receiver at the Combine, and could very well end up being the offensive MVP this year.

Draft Grade: That Escalated Quickly
The Colts made huge strides last year after a stellar draft. However, they looked like a team that was running on high gear that would eventually run out of gas. That is just a testament to how well they played so quickly. This draft appears to have given them that next wave of talent that will allow them to take the next step.
Ya-Sin was a first rounder in many mocks, and is a physical, athletic DB. Add to that Willis from Michigan State, and they added two superb new toys for their secondary.
Campbell couldn’t be a better match for Hilton for their offense. This is now a very speedy, versatile, dangerous passing offense.
