Ranking the Colts' position groups by strength entering training camp.


The Indianapolis Colts are less than a month away from returning to Westfield for 2022 training camp where they hope to begin their trek toward a playoff spot.

Knowing their strengths and weaknesses will be vital throughout the training camp and preseason process in order to eventually cut the roster down to 53 players.

Here’s a quick look at ranking the Colts’ positions by strength entering training camp:


1-Running Back

It’s hard to find a better duo than Jonathan Taylor and Nyheim Hines.




We know Darius Leonard is elite, but this group can take a big step forward with a breakout from Bobby Okereke.



3-Defensive Tackle

Buckner is still an elite talent at the three-technique while Grover Stewart is one of the most underrated run-stoppers in the NFL.




4-Interior Offensive Line

Ryan Kelly should bounce back from an up-and-down year while Danny Pinter can be the reason this group becomes elite again.





Matt Ryan is a strong fit for the offense, and Nick Foles is viewed as one of the best backups in the entire league.



6-Edge Rusher

This group may wind up being too low if Yannick Ngakoue continues his consistent play and Kwity Paye breaks out as many expect him to.




The addition of Stephon Gilmore is huge for this unit, and it will be interesting to see what happens with Kenny Moore’s contract situation. Expect third-year cornerback Isaiah Rodgers to step into a bigger role as well.



8-Offensive Tackle

This spot is all dependent on how the left tackle situation shakes out between Matt Pryor and third-round pick Bernhard Raimann.



9-Wide Receiver

It’s Michael Pittman Jr. and a lot of players looking to prove themselves in the spots behind him.



10-Tight End

Mo Alie-Cox will get his chance to prove he’s worthy of leading a tight end room while Kylen Granson and Jelani Woods battle it out behind him.




Losing Khari Willis to retirement is a tough blow. Can Nick Cross step up during his rookie season?

    • Sure, all true.  But my theme was that a lot of us here (and especially the national media) had expectations of winning the division last season.  We all know the reasons it went south.  We all could have said similar things that you pointed out - Oline uncertainty, QB arm/age, etc., but most were confident.     Oline improved, QB room improved, play calling possibilities, etc..  Yet people now think 6 wins would be a successful season.     We were so optimistic last year, why are the expectations so low this season?  It’s mostly the same  team, with improvements.
    • Yes.  The chart is valid and always has been.   There are always some quirks.  Supposedly PIT turned down some capital to be able to stay in the area to draft Joey Porter Jr....so there are sometimes reasons for the chart to look wonky on any given trade (or nontrade). but its valid for the most part.
    • OK….   I understand that the less imaginative people are going to respond with the Dumb and Dumber meme “So you’re telling me there’s a chance…”       It’s easy and requires no real thought on the subject.  So go right ahead if it makes you feel “special”.     Goodness gracious…..       
    • In the NFL, margins of winning can be very close. So, we could end up winning a bunch of close games and winning 9 games or end up losing a bunch of close ones and win just 6 games. The odds of our secondary holding up with some inexperience in the back end which will matter in close games, and the odds of a run oriented offense being able to come back against better teams by passing the ball both work against us in games where our D and O cannot control tempo. 2 games vs the Raiders and Broncos, we had Stephon Gilmore close out, that experience will be missed, IMO. Plus Darius Leonard is a question mark as to whether he will be able to play at the same high level we know he can. Plus, typically 2nd year chemistry with pass catchers is better than 1st year chemistry.   These are all valid question marks I laid out, that cause me to lean more towards the 6 win side than the 9 win side. Plus, not to mention, when teams had to step on the gas vs Gus Bradley's D, they typically did. We are playing with house money, anything can happen and I will enjoy every small victory within a game that shows progress and good football even if does not lead to a W, I will leave it at that.
