The Indianapolis Colts traded up to ensure the selection of running back Jonathan Taylor and while he has the talent to be an every-down, workhorse back in the league, his first season will include a timeshare with Marlon Mack.
Taylor brings with him an illustrious career at Wisconsin. He was a two-time Doak Walker Award winner and rushed for over 6,000 yards in three seasons. It’s safe to say he’s well-versed in carrying a backfield.
But Taylor’s rookie season won’t feature him as the only player in the Colts backfield. He will be splitting the workload and wants to make the most of his reps.
