2015 Depth Charts: Indianapolis Colts
• Will Trent Richardson even be on the roster by the time the season rolls around? Even if he is it’s unlikely he’ll be high up the depth chart. A player who can force missed tackles with ease, he just hasn’t been able to put it all together, with it looking increasing unlikely that it ever will.
• Improving his consistency, Andrew Luck has pushed himself into the Very Good group at quarterback. His only really poor game came against the New England Patriots in the AFC Championship game, and he’ll be hoping to lead them to the Super Bowl in 2015.
• Can Robert Mathis perform at a high level coming back from injury at the age of 34? Well, until we see otherwise it’s hard to say that he can’t. That 2013 season was special though, and it’d be huge for the Colts if he can get back to that level.
• Some may feel that Elite is too high for Vontae Davis, but he’s performed at a high level two years in a row now so it’s difficult to say he isn’t among the best cornerbacks in the game right now.
Running Back: Taking what may or may not happen with Richardson out of the equation, the Colts still need to add a quality running back or two this offseason. If Vick Ballard can return healthy then he can be a solid backup, but finding a true starter is a must.
Defensive Back: Outside of Davis, there’s a lot of question marks in the defensive backfield. They need more quality at cornerback with him, while at safety right now the starters would likely be Dewey McDonald and Delano Howell, who we haven’t seen enough of to judge.
Offensive Line: Castonzo and Mewhort have the makings of a solid duo on the left side of the line, but at this stage there are serious question marks over the other three starters on the line. Center is the biggest concern, where Khaled Holmes really struggled last season, but neither Thornton or Cherilus impressed on the right side in 2014.
