Summary

The Colts lost their veteran running back and vocal leader, Frank Gore to the Miami Dolphins via free agency in the offseason. They elected to not pursue a replacement to Gore in their own free agency moves, thus giving the impression that they would concentrate on this area in the draft. The first round came and went with a much-needed selection of guard Quentin Nelson with the sixth overall pick. The Colts had four picks in the second round and skipped over running back all four times. It wasn't until the third round when they drafted Nyheim Hines, a running back from North Carolina State. At 5'9, 197 pounds, the diminutive Hines gives the Colts a Tarik Cohen type of player who fills a need as a speedy, elusive, third down back role. While Hines could see decent snaps and playing time, he doesn't fit the role as the team's primary ball carrier. Right now, that role still belongs to Marlon Mack until he or someone else proves otherwise. The second year pro from South Florida managed only 3.8 yards per carry last year, but he showed promise as a versatile option in the Colts offense. Mack's 21 receptions in limited snaps may be a precursor to an advanced role in 2018 and beyond. It's unclear how much Mack will be used in 2018, but if free agency and draft decisions are any indication, the Colts and Head Coach Frank Reich, seem content with him getting the first opportunity to carve out a prominent role.
