No. 2: Indianapolis Colts
The Indianapolis Colts are another team hitting a crossroads this offseason, particularly if they’re wondering whether or not quarterback Jacoby Brissett is the long-term answer under center.
Indy finished third last in total pass yards in 2019. And while Brissett had something to do with a mere 3,108 pass yards over the course of the season, the lack of wide receiver production has to be a major concern moving forward, too.
Veteran wide receiver T.Y. Hilton managed a mere 501 yards as he dealt with an injury-plagued season in which he appeared in just 10 games. Now beyond the 30-year-old benchmark, one has to wonder if he has a lot of those notable 1,000-yard campaigns left in his body.
And are the Colts willing to bank on third-year pro wideout Zach Pascal putting up another 600-yard season?
In short, Indianapolis needs a lot of receiving help this offseason.
What should be enticing to the 49ers, though, is the fact the Colts are loaded with NFL Draft picks — nine in total. On day three, Indy has it’s own selections in Rounds 4 and 5, two sixth-round picks and another in Round 7.
One of those could easily be dealt in San Francisco’s direction for Marquise Goodwin, which would give head coach Frank Reich a veteran presence instead of risking a draft commodity on an unproven late-round prospect.
