Evan Hull was a draft-day steal for the Colts on Day 3. The Northwestern product spent the past two seasons owning his team's backfield as a mega-producer posting back-to-back seasons with a 35% dominator rating. The 5-foot-10 and 209-pound back hauled in 87 passes for 800 receiving yards as a full-blown three-down back while forcing over 100 missed tackles.
With a decorated production profile and desirable athleticism - 78th percentile or better tester in the 40-yard dash, vertical jump, broad jump and 3-cone drill - Hull rising the ranks in Indy's backfield should surprise nobody. He led all FBS running backs in receptions and receiving yards in 2022. Hard to not view him as the best long-term bet in the Colts backfield with Zack Moss sidelined due to a broken arm and JT out the first four weeks of the season on the PUP list. As a Day 3 rookie, he likely won't start in Week 1, but could easily see his role grow based on his talent and preseason play.
