The Indianapolis Colts have had a solid offseason that was only added onto with what looks to be a solid draft class. Indianapolis did not have a first-round pick, after trading it to the 49ers for defensive lineman DeForest Buckner.

Despite that, they were able to begin their draft on Day 2 with two selections some experts believed were Day 1 talents. With that in mind, let's take a look at the best and worst picks of the Colts' 2020 NFL Draft.

Colts' Best Draft Pick

While the first two Colts picks, in Michael Pittman and Jonathan Taylor, were alluded to, the Colts best value came at No. 122 when they selected quarterback Jacob Eason out of Washington. Eason is viewed by many as a first-round talent with questions about his consistency and his professionalism.

Still, Eason has all the physical tools you want in a quarterback, standing at 6-foot-6 and having one of the biggest arms in the draft. He is a raw prospect that fell more than he should have, and the Colts were able to grab him and put him in a perfect situation. Eason will be able to develop and learn behind Philip Rivers and possibly be the future at the position.

Colts' Worst Draft Pick

The Colts had an overall solid draft, but their worst pick was cornerback Isaiah Rodgers out of UMass, taken 211 overall. Rodgers is a 5-foot-10 corner that doesn't offer the Colts much. It also looks worse when considering how the Colts drafted him. They traded for the pick with the New York Jets, after sending 2017 second-round cornerback Quincy Wilson. Clearly, the return on that second-round pick was poor and it says more about how bad that selection was, but Indianapolis could have done more here.
