With teams still not able to properly access their facilities due to the COVID-19 pandemic, there is some question about exactly if and when training camp will begin, as well as what it will look like if it does. However, let’s assume that some of the early positive signs prove to hold up and we are able to resume some kind of normality. The Colts are primed to be an exciting team in 2020, and ahead of camp, we’re going to review every position group and see how they look on paper.
Today we’re going to take a look at the tight end position for the Colts and how they look heading into camp. Frank Reich has shown a desire to use tight ends in a variety of ways, and the Colts have had promise there for several seasons. How good could this group be? Let’s take a look.
The Colts top tight end and most well-rounded of the group, Jack Doyle is one of the most reliable players on the Colts offense. He has developed a mythology among Colts fans and while he has never been the most talented player on any Colts offense he has been a part of, Doyle’s quiet, team first demeanor and workman-like attitude makes him a fan favorite in Indy.
This year is likely to be another good one for Doyle. He excels as a blocking tight end, and the Colts will no doubt ask him to do so again in 2020. There are certainly better, more talented tight ends in the NFL, but there might not be many who are as well-rounded and smart as Doyle, nor as consistent.
