The Colts don't want Wilkins or Taylor to be LeVeon Bell, and they don't want every back to play the same. Rathman coached Wilkins to play a certain way and coached Mack to be more decisive. You might think Mack is the best zone runner, and stylistically, he does still hesitate and read more than the other two, but ideally for an every down back, I think they are looking for something closer to what Taylor was by season's end.
This is probably going to go on until we get closer to the season. Now that I think about it I don’t think Ballard would be willing to sign him this early into his recovery. Now the big question is do they go after Leno or wait on Fishers recovery to get further along.
huh? Mack is the best zone runner we have by far. Wilkins isn't bad. Taylor really struggled, especially early. He was better late, but he's still not on the level as Mack was. Keep in mind Taylor ran a ton of power at Wiscy.
