Last season was Blackmon’s rookie campaign in the league.
He was first selected out of Utah by the Colts during the third round of the 2020 NFL Draft.
After suffering a season-ending injury in his final college game, the Colts planned to slowly bring Blackmon back from the injury. Due to other injuries in Indianapolis’ secondary, the former Ute was thrust into action early in the season and quickly became a standout player. He finished the year as a starter for the Colts and a key piece to the team’s young core.
During his first season, Blackmon helped Indianapolis to an 11-5 record and a postseason berth.
