The theme so far during the 2017 NFL season seems to be “next man up” with star players such as Texans defensive end J.J. Watt, Giants receiver Odell Beckham Jr. and Cardinals running back David Johnson among those lost for the season.
This year’s class seems particularly promising in that regard. ESPN NFL draft expert Mel Kiper’s most recent Big Board includes three quarterbacks in the top six. Even if USC passer Sam Darnold, a third-year sophomore, decides to stay in school, it’s reasonable to figure that the duo of UCLA’s Josh Rosen and Wyoming’s Josh Allen could be the first two picks, following the scripts of the 2015 and 2016 drafts, which also started 1-2 with quarterbacks. (While neither is having a Heisman-caliber season, quarterbacks have a way of rising up draft boards.)
The Colts, of course, don’t need a quarterback. Luck’s contract realistically commits Indy to the 2012 first overall pick through at least 2018, and it would require some sort of seismic disagreement for them to move Luck out of town. It’s safe to assume he isn’t going anywhere. Indy could consider a move for the ridiculous Saquon Barkley, Kiper’s No. 1 overall prospect, or grab the best defensive player available, but there’s a more palatable option available.
Jaguars running back Leonard Fournette may be dealing with an injured right ankle, but he doesn’t expect it to keep him out of Sunday’s game against the Colts. He is the NFL’s second-leading rusher with 596 yards and has accounted for more than 36 percent of Jacksonville’s offense.
