Colts Cast: Breaking Down the Colts by Position | Defensive Tackle

New, comments

We’re less than 10 days until the Indianapolis Colts report to training camp for the remainder of the summer. It’s time we look at each player on the current roster, position by position, to see what the team truly offers us for the 2018 season.

It’s understood that even if some of the team’s roster bubble players make the initial 53-man roster, that they’ll still be fighting for their jobs among the rest of the league’s roster casualties.

One of the Colts deeper units throughout the roster — especially when considering available spots — is the group of defensive tackles. Al Woods was kept over Johnathan Hankins, Hassan Ridgeway will be battling several tweeners for snaps and Denico Autry may have a bit more to offer this team than most realize.

Tyquan Lewis will be one of the most interesting pieces to this group despite being a rookie who isn’t necessarily expected to get a ton of early-down snaps at this point. Second-year DT Grover Stewart will be one to watch on the possibility of him getting a large mix of run and pass snaps throughout the season. But, is he a dual purpose player?

Tonight we dive into this unit, and will continue through each position in the coming days as training camp nears.

This group holds a lot of unknowns, but it will be one of the more competitive positions — and not due to inexperience. Most of these guys have played some good football at the NFL level, they just have to get the right mix of talent and specialists to get the coaching staff to take notice.
