2015 Depth Charts Update: Indianapolis Colts

  • The big concern for the Colts has to be on that offensive line. Anthony Castonzo has developed nicely, specifically as a pass blocker, where he finished the year as our sixth highest graded offensive tackle, but there are serious question from center to right tackle. Khaled Holmes took over as the starting center in Week 16, but finished the year with a grade of -13.0 on just 353 snaps including the playoffs. It’s not quite as serious a situation at right guard and tackle, but neither Todd Herremans nor Gosder Cherilus impressed in 2014.


  • Frank Gore might only be an average running back at this point, but that’s a step up from where the Colts were a year ago. He’ll be 32 when the season begins, but despite having plenty of miles on the clock he has still graded positively as a runner in each of the past two seasons. He’s not a top quality back but in this offense he should still be able to add a little of the balance that was missing in the past.


  • The big disappointment on the defensive line has to be last season’s free agent signing Arthur Jones. After handing him a big contract at the start of free agency, Jones produced a season where he graded at -10.2 on just 371 snaps, missing a chunk of the year with an injury He was above average in his final season in Baltimore in 2013 however, and the Colts need him to regain that form in 2015.


  • Both of their starters at outside linebacker are older, and it’s relying on them still being able to perform as the level we’ve seen in the past, but adding Trent Cole has the potential to give the Colts their best pass rushing tandem since Robert Mathis had Dwight Freeney on the other side. One name to keep an eye on at edge rusher from a youth stand point however, is Jonathan Newsome. The 2014 fifth round draft pick played 531 snaps as a rookie, registering eight sacks, five hits and 16 hurries including the playoffs.
  • Jason Williams

    Luck is so close to being elite – you can just see it in the way he plays. Keep cleaning up the mistakes and that kid is a first ballot HOFer.

    • Colts45

      You early to tell but will see.

      • Colts45

        I mean to early to tell but will see. Hope the colts win a super bowl.

    • Dalen Erickson

      I agree completely. I expect him to eventually break all of Peytons records. He has it all. Big arm, Poise in the pocket, outrageous athleticism, great vision and awareness. he will be one of the best to ever play. Its just a matter of when he takes that next leap

    dear jack del rio, t.y. hilton is the colts best reciever, not whoever u put chris harris jr. on all game long. k, thx

  • Dalen Erickson

    I think Langford is back in his natural position that he hasnt been in since he was a dolphin. He will play well for them. great signing

  • Dalen Erickson

    Arthur Jones will eventually step it up. The potential is certainly there. He has super star genetics. One brother, Bones Jones, is (or should be without a failed drug test) light heavyweight champion of the world and by most accounts, the baddest man on the planet. His other brother is the star pass rusher for NE. He will step it up eventually. He looked really good as a supplemental player in Baltimore. Just a matter of time

    • Jacob B.

      That being said, how many players have left Baltimore to fall flat on their face elsewhere? It’s almost a trope at this point that defenders from Baltimore will get a big contract elsewhere, and under perform.

      • Dalen Erickson

        answer: LOTS haha. Its a very fair point your making. Still he is a great athlete and has showed some flashes of brilliance. I think the Ravens rule is more of a guideline than law. Ellerbe played well after leaving but he is a rare example of that

    • Chris

      Jones has a -20 career grade outside of 2013, which was a contract year, when he posted +7ish. Not a surprise he was below average again in 2014 and I wouldn’t expect much of a change going forward. I think his grade is fair.

  • JackBauer2016

    Arthur Jones and Kendall Langford should both be upgraded to at least AVERAGE, not Below Avg.Lowery at AVERAGE is too generous, as is Nate Irving.
