Day 3 of the 2020 NFL Draft was filled with trades. While they mostly surrounded this one team, two AFC rivals have gotten into the action.

The Indianapolis Colts have traded former second-round pick Quincy Wilson to the New York Jets for a late sixth-round pick in the 2020 NFL Draft.

Some might find it surprising that Indianapolis moved on from a top-50 pick after just three seasons. But as Ian Rapoport suggests, Wilson had been on the block for some time.

The No. 46 overall pick of the Colts from Florida back in 2017, Wilson just has not lived up to expectations. The cornerback has started a total of 10 games in three seasons, recording 61 tackles and two interceptions in the process.

In return for the former early-round pick, Indianapolis selected another corner in that of Isaiah Rodgers.
