Full Training Camp Roster Breakdown for the Indianapolis Colts

Posted By Kyle J. Rodriguez On July 17, 2013 @ 4:02 pm In Colts News | No Comments

The Colts [1] will enter the 2013 season with an improved roster, more familiarity among teammates and coaches and high, self-imposed expectations. 

While fans and members of the organization expect the team to improve upon its play from last season, many members of the media expect a regression from the 11 wins the Colts earned in 2013.

On the surface this may seem irresponsible, considering that the Colts are noticeably more talented at just about every position; however, the reality is that the 2012 Colts were incredibly lucky [2], pulling out seven fourth quarter comebacks and finishing the season with a negative point differential. 

Going into the 2013 season, the Colts still have significant questions, despite their improvement. The defense is the main concern, specifically the lack of pass rush and effect that may have on an unproven secondary. The offense seems to be a bit more stable, but the offensive line is still a looming question mark a season after allowing the highest pressure per dropback in the league [3], according to Pro Football Focus (subscription required).

Of course, positive developments exist as well. The Colts’ new offense under Pep Hamilton should be much more efficient. The offensive line has been upgraded, even if the end result of those upgrades is still in question. The Colts’ defense has gotten major improvements on the defensive line and secondary.  

With the improvements, the Colts now go into what is almost always a highly-anticipated time: training camp. So, as we look ahead, what can we expect from each player on the 90-man roster? Who makes the cut, and who sees a bigger role this season? Who’s getting demoted, or possibly even released? Who should you be watching for during the three weeks of camp?
