Chris Ballard and the Indianapolis Colts have been building their franchise the right way over the past few years. While they missed the playoffs after the sudden retirement of franchise quarterback Andrew Luck last season, they still feel confident that they can make an aggressive comeback in 2020.

A lot of that belief has to do with the offseason that the Colts put together. Ballard went out and acquired DeForest Buckner in a blockbuster trade with the San Francisco 49ers and then signed veteran star quarterback Philip Rivers to a one-year, $25 million deal in free agency.

However, it is a move that the Colts did not make that we will focus on in this article. In the 2019 NFL Draft, Indianapolis made a move in the second round for former Ohio State standout wide receiver Parris Campbell.

Campbell has a ton of potential, but he missed a chunk of the 2019 season. When he did play, there were some consistency issues. There was a massive mistake that the Colts made in the draft.

Let’s take a look at what that massive mistake was and why it could haunt the Colts for years to come.
