Colts Cast: Breaking Down the Colts by Position: Offensive Line

New, comments

Transitioning to the offensive side of the ball, we start with a unit that has had a ton of trouble in recent years, but may now be the grouping with the most depth. Let’s discuss the Colts offensive line

We now transition into the offense after wrapping up the defensive side of the Indianapolis Colts 2018 roster.

While the defense has a ton of questions at virtually each position, the offense has a couple in which they have greatly improved not only the starters, but have a quality amount of depth as well. One of those units is the offensive line.

The interior of the line has some very important additions in Quenton Nelson, the one-year deal with Jack Mewhort could prove to pay dividends and the veteran addition of Matt Slauson adds depth at multiple positions. Adding in some of the utility linemen like Joe Haeg, Denzelle Good and maybe even rookie Braden Smith will allow for great battles for the 53-man roster throughout the summer.

Having someone like Deyshawn Bond, who got some extensive snaps last season at center, in the mix to back up Ryan Kelly is a positive as well. The Colts did have Haeg taking snaps at center this offseason and the team has a couple others with the ability to snap the ball should more bodies be needed.

The team’s tackle position has some depth now as well. Anthony Castonzo is expected back sooner rather than later, Austin Howard is tentatively considered to be penciled in as the starter at right tackle, and with La’Raven Clark, Good and Haeg also able to fill in there, those fighting for a roster spot after that are going to be in for a real fight.

Jeremy Vujnovich was placed on the PUP list, but if we’re being honest he was physically unable to perform last year. The Colts also have Mark Glowinski, Jared Macharo, Tyreek Burwell in the mix to battle for roster spots as well.
