As the Indianapolis Colts final preseason game of 2019 looms closer, the team’s roster is beginning to get a little bit of clarity. Most of the positions largely are clear in who the starters will be, and immediate backups appear to be set as well.
Where the questions come in to play, each and every year, is who will be primarily a special teamer? Who has done enough to make this roster without a heavy special teams presence? And, which position can pull that extra player as a result of the first two questions.
Today, Matt Danely goes through each of the positions on both sides of the ball, puts his roster prediction together, but leaves that ever elusive 53rd man slot on the roster open for discussion. Several will be in consideration at various positions, and Matt will also discuss a large handful who could be that 53rd man depending on the preferences of Chris Ballard and Frank Reich.
Up for discussion, the Colts have an interesting tight end battle to sift through, a couple positions — mainly cornerback and receiver — to make some tough decisions with in order to get the best current 53-man group together, and a very deep defensive front to consider as well.
This may just be the best roster, top to bottom, the Colts have fielded in quite a while.
