2017 Colts First Depth Chart

NFL: Indianapolis Colts-Training Camp Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports

The Colts first unofficial depth chart is out, and it has a couple minor surprises. It is worth keeping in mind that it is pretty unlikely that the finished product will look anything like this one as players make impressions in the preseason and Ballard and the front office continue to add players they think can provide better value to the roster.

On the defensive side, Tevin Mitchel is in with the 2nd team pushing Quincy Wilson back with the 3rd unit in base packages. Rookie safety Malik Hooker is with the 2nd team behind Matthias Farley, which should not come as a major surprise as he has been brought along slowly to ease his recovery from injury.

The linebacker group should be no major surprise if you’ve been following our camp notes with Bostic and Morrison starting at ILB and Simon and Sheard on the outside. Basham is with the 2nd team as well. Also unsurprising is the starting defensive line group of Hankins, Woods, and Anderson.

Everything on the offensive side is pretty much as we expected, with the exception that Phillip Dorsett and Chester Rogers being separated by a hyphen. Maybe this means that the battle has been too close to call so far? I’d expect the preseason to offer some separation there. Additionally, Marlon Mack is with the threes and overtook Josh Ferguson, which is not totally surprising. The word has been that Turbin has looked great in camp so it is not surprising to see him with the 2nd team and we will likely see him get more looks once the season arrives.

What do you think of this first look? Does anything surprise you? Let us know in the comments.
