Could Florida State University running back Dalvin Cook be the answer for the Colts need at the position? Stephen Holder of the Indianapolis Star tweeted out yesterday that Cook is indeed one of the 60 formal interviews the team has scheduled with prospects at this year’s combine. Cook is easily one of the top two backs in what many scouts are calling a historic pool of talent. Does he make sense for Indianapolis though? Frank Gore, the current starter, had a terrific 2016 campaign, but he is certainly a gray beard of the offense. At 33-years of age, Gore’s time left in the league is a concern. The Colts do need to find a running back of the future for that very reason. Many fans and analysts alike have noted that the team should draft a running back in the middle rounds and there are a lot of talented guys projected to go during that time frame. The biggest thing for Indianapolis is whether or not they believe the draft is deep enough to acquire quality defensive players in rounds two through seven. If that is, in fact, the case, Cook would be a difference maker for Indianapolis.
