Colts fifth-round RB Jordan Wilkins received first-team reps in Thursday's practice.
The Colts are rotating backs while Marlon Mack is sidelined, but it is still notable any time a fifth-round pick receives first-team reps in his rookie camp. Wilkins previously ran with the first team in minicamp, and has been drawing praise going back to rookie OTAs. He's a name to file away in the final rounds of fantasy drafts. Aug 16 - 3:43 PM

The Indianapolis Star reports fifth-round RB Jordan Wilkins has been excelling in Colts camp "since the pads went on."

Reporter Stephen Holder believes Wilkins is "going to give coaches lots to contemplate if he continues to have the same kind of production in preseason games." Committed to a committee, the Colts' backfield roles are wide open.

1070 The Fan's Kevin Bowen believes Colts fifth-round rookie Jordan Wilkins is "in the mix" for the starting running back job.

Bowen reports Marlon Mack has spent the most time with the first-team offense, but each of the top five backs on the depth chart has gotten at least a few reps with the starting unit. Under new coach Frank Reich, the Colts are fully expected to use a committee approach in the backfield, but Wilkins could still return value in all formats if he wins the early-down job. He is a good late-round flier.

Fifth-round RB Jordan Wilkins has mixed in with the Colts' first-team offense at minicamp.

And he's getting reps with Andrew Luck, who returned to practice on Tuesday and is doing more on Wednesday. Beat writer George Bremer noted Wilkins caught a deep wheel route from Luck. Robert Turbin has gotten most of the first-team running back reps, but the Colts know what he brings to the table. Marlon Mack is rehabbing from shoulder surgery. Wilkins is a late-round fantasy sleeper.

Colts selected Ole Miss RB Jordan Wilkins with the No. 169 overall pick in the 2018 NFL draft.

Wilkins (6’1/216) emerged as the leader of Ole Miss’ backfield committee as a senior, amassing an explosive 155/1,011/6.5/9 rushing line with 26/241/1 receiving. PFF College gave Wilkins its fourth-highest pass-blocking grade in this running back class. Wilkins unfortunately bombed the Combine after suffering a hamstring injury, but he bounced back with a 4.53 forty, a 37-inch vertical, and a 10-foot-3 broad jump at his Pro Day. Wilkins is more of a finesse back despite his size and is old for a prospect (24 in July), but his versatility gives him some appeal as a swiss-army-knife type contributor who can play special teams.
