Jonathan Taylor has established himself as one of the best running backs in the NFL. Following a stellar career with the Wisconsin Badgers, the Colts drafted Talor with the 41st overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft.
He rushed for 1,169 yards as a rookie, adding 12 total touchdowns and nearly 300 receiving yards. Taylor was named First-Team All-Pro in 2021 after totaling over 2,000 combined yards and 20 touchdowns.
2022 proved to be a difficult year for the Colts as a whole, firing head coach Frank Reich in Week 10. Taylor was limited to 11 games but still averaged over 4.5 yards per carry.
However, Jonathan will look to get back to his All-Pro level of play under a new head coach and offensive coordinator.
Jonathan Taylor Leads the New-Look Colts
The Colts have injected more playmakers into the offense, so teams can not focus solely on Taylor. The team drafted Anthony Richardson, who may give them a major upgrade as a passer. They also added talented rookie receiver, Josh Downs, adding more speed to help the chains.
Regardless of Richardson's development as a passer, he will give opponents another rushing threat to account for. This will make Taylor's job easier.
The Colts are clearly focused on ensuring their offense is on par with some of the best in the league. New head coach Shane Steichen was the offensive coordinator for the Eagles in 2022. In Philidelphia, Steichen got the most out of Miles Sanders, who ran for over 1,200 yards and 11 touchdowns. He now has Jonathan Taylor at his disposal.
Taylor on Expectations for Richardson & Steichen
Steichen and Richardson will obviously go a long way in Taylor getting back to his 2022 form. However, he will go a long way in helping them as well. The former Wisconsin Badger spoke about how he looks to help his young quarterback.
"I’m letting Richardson know that I’m here and I have his back no matter what the case may be. Whether that means running RPOs, in pass protection, or if he needs somebody as an outlet in the passing game. It could just mean me being efficient in the run game for him."

Taylor also spoke about what Shane Steichen brings to the Colts and his approach to coaching the offense to be explosive once again.
"It’s not about whether or not the job gets done. The job may get done, but Coach Steichen will be watching the film and identifying teachable moments (laughs). You did a great job, but we can correct this false step. Instead of going underneath this guy, go over the top next time.
He’s very critical when it comes to the details of football. I love that. I feel like he really has a passion for the game. He wants everyone else to have the same passion. Hone in on your details. Don’t just do your job, do it well. Work at your craft."
