Will Anyone from the Colts 2015 Draft Class Earn a Contract Extension?

There might not be anyone from the 2015 draft class on the Colts’ roster next season.

The class of 2015 may be one of the most disastrous drafts in Colts history, and the failures of those picks contributed to the case for Ryan Grigson to be fired.

Phillip Dorsett, D’Joun Smith, Henry Anderson, David Parry, Josh Robinson, and Amarlo Herrera are all either out of the league or out of Indianapolis just three years after being drafted by Grigson.

The lone remaining members of the 2015 draft class are Clayton Geathers and Denzelle Good, and they are each entering the final year of their contracts in 2018.

Will Chris Ballard offer them contract extensions following this season?

Clayton Geathers

Clayton Geathers is an incredibly tough player to evaluate after his three years in the league.

Geathers struggled as a rookie, but he was off to a great start in his second NFL season before suffering a season-ending neck injury.

That neck injury caused him to miss the beginning of last year, and he didn’t look the same in 2017 only managing to play in five games last season.

Geathers will battle for a starting strong safety position alongside Malik Hooker in training camp, and his 2018 season will determine whether he has a future in Indianapolis.

Right now, it’s impossible to say whether Geathers will be a Colt in 2019.

Denzelle Good

Denzelle Good has started 19 games at guard and tackle over his first three seasons in the NFL.

Good has had an up-and-down career thus far, but he’s played fairly well for a former seventh round pick.

Good will probably be a backup this season and won’t be able to earn much playing time unless there are multiple injuries along the offensive line.

I could see Chris Ballard re-signing Good to a cheap backup deal next offseason, but he’ll probably never be a full-time starter in Indianapolis.
