INDIANAPOLIS – Along with the 6 draft picks the Colts currently have for next week, the team will have more roster movement in the coming weeks.
Currently, the Colts have 82 of their 90 spots filled on their roster.
Adding six draftees (pending draft trades) would leave just two open spots for undrafted free agents. Typically, the Colts add many more undrafted free agents than just two, so look for them to cut some of the names below to open up more room.
For now, here’s the Colts’ 82-man roster with the team’s offseason program underway:
-Quarterbacks (3): Jacob Eason, Jalen Morton, Carson Wentz
Bowen’s Analysis: Will the Colts want a 4th QB arm at some point this offseason?
-Running Backs (7): Darius Anderson, Nyheim Hines, Bobby LeMay, Marlon Mack, Paul Perkins, Jonathan Taylor, Jordan Wilkins
Bowen’s Analysis: With Marlon Mack re-singing, the Colts have a clear top 4 returning at running back, with some intriguing names rounding out the group.
-Wide Receivers (10): Parris Campbell, Quartney Davis, Ashton Dulin, DeMichael Harris, T.Y. Hilton, Gary Jennings, J.J. Nelson, Zach Pascal, Dezmon Patmon, Michael Pittman
Bowen’s Analysis: This is a position that will see some additions. Remember, 2018 5th round pick Reece Fountain is no longer on the roster, as he’s a free agent.
-Tight Ends (6): Mo Alie-Cox, Jack Doyle, Farrod Green, Jordan Thomas, Noah Togiai, Andrew Vollert
Bowen’s Analysis: With Trey Burton still a free agent, there are some reps to be had at this group. It shouldn’t shock anyone if the Colts (finally) draft a tight end next week.
-Offensive Line (16): Jake Benzinger, Julie’n Davenport, Jake Eldrenkamp, Mark Glowinski, Will Holden, Joey Hunt, Sam Jones, Ryan Kelly, Carter O’Donnell, Quenton Nelson, Elijah Nkansah, Danny Pinter, Chris Reed, Braden Smith, Sam Tevi, Casey Tucker
Bowen’s Analysis: From a numbers standpoint, the Colts are in fine shape up front. But they definitely need to invest a high pick at the tackle position next week. Le’Raven Clark and Chaz Green are still free agents.
-Defensive Line (12): Ben Banogu, Andrew Brown, DeForest Buckner, Kameron Cline, Tyquan Lewis, Al-Quadin Muhammad, Isaac Rochell, Taylor Stallworth, Grover Stewart, Kemoko Turay, Chris Williams, Rob Windsor
Bowen’s Analysis: Similar to the O-line, the numbers here are satisfactory, but the Colts need some more out on the edge group. Justin Houston (free agent) and Denico Autry (Titans) aren’t on the roster so a good amount of playing time is there.
-Linebackers (7): Matthew Adams, Zaire Franklin, Jordan Glasgow, Darius Leonard, Skai Moore, Bobby Okereke, EJ Speed
Bowen’s Analysis: This position continues to have little change added to it, although the group did lose Anthony Walker to the Browns.
-Cornerbacks (10): T.J. Carrie Andre Chachere, Anthony Chesley, Kenny Moore, Xavier Rhodes, Isaiah Rodgers, Will Sunderland, Roderic Teamer, Marvell Tell, Rock Ya-Sin
Bowen’s Analysis: The Colts welcome back Marvell Tell, who opted out last season. And the Colts have re-signed a pair of 30-year-olds in Rhodes and Carrie.
–Safeties (7): Julian Blackmon, Ibraheim Campbell, Sean Davis, Rolan Milligan, Nick Nelson, George Odum, Khari Willis
Bowen’s Analysis: It’s a lot of youth in the safety group with two rookie contract guys (Blackmon and Willis) as the returning starters.
-Specialists (4): K-Rodrigo Blankenship, P-Austin Rehkow, LS-Luke Rhodes, P-Rigoberto Sanchez
Bowen’s Analysis: Will we see another kicker added for competition this offseason?
