Colts predicted to take Washington QB Jacob Eason in NFL Draft

The Indianapolis Colts are expected to pursue a quarterback this offseason, whether that be in free agency or the 2020 NFL Draft. While they have been connected to first-round prospects like Justin Herbert and Jordan Love, there are some prospects in the second round that they could look at.

CBS Sports has predicted that the Colts will take a quarterback in the second round. They have Indianapolis snagging Washington standout Jacob Eason with the No. 34 overall pick.

NFL.com currently has Eason’s comparison listed as a combination of Carson Palmer and Brock Osweiler. The Palmer comparison is extremely interesting. If he could become a guy like Palmer for the Colts, they would be sitting pretty long-term.

During the 2019 season with the Huskies, Eason completed 64.2 percent of his pass attempts for 3,132 yards, 23 touchdowns, and eight interceptions. He also scored a touchdown on the ground.

Standing in at 6-foot-6 and 230 pounds, Eason is the prototypical size for an NFL quarterback. Indianapolis would be able to sit him behind either Jacoby Brissett or Philip Rivers for a couple of years. Frank Reich would be able to bring him along at a comfortable pace.

Indianapolis is only a few pieces away from competing for a Super Bowl. Chris Ballard has a ton of cap space and a lot of draft capital to work with. Eason would make a lot of sense, especially in the second round which would allow them to use their first-round pick on a wide receiver.

Expect to hear more predictions and rumors about the Colts as the offseason begins picking up. Don’t be surprised if Eason ends up being a target for them.
