The Indianapolis Colts announced Friday that they’ve officially signed second-round pick RB Jonathan Taylor, fourth-round QB Jacob Eason and sixth-round OLB Jordan Glasgow to rookie contracts.

The Colts have now signed all but two of their 2020 draft picks:

4 Jacob Eason QB Signed
5 Danny Pinter G Signed

Taylor, 20, was a three-year starter at Wisconsin and a two-time Doak Walker Award winner. The Colts traded up with the Browns to select him at No. 41 overall in this year’s draft. 

Lance Zierlein compares him to former Chargers and Eagles RB Ryan Mathews, but with added durability.

Eason, 22, was a one-year starter at Washington after beginning his college career at Georgia before transferring for the 2018 season. The Colts used the No. 122 overall pick in the fourth round on him. 

During his college career at Georgia and Washington, Eason threw for 5,590 yards while completing 59.8 percent of his passes to go along with 39 touchdowns and 16 interceptions over the course of three seasons and 29 games.
