Every year, one of the offseason rituals is the constant tweaking of potential rosters and depth charts. As rosters consistently change, fans and analysts alike will be penciling in their depth charts and erasing cuts.
With OTAs completed, one more step in the offseason march toward training camp gets crossed off the list, and we update our depth charts.
The following chart will include starters for every position on the Indianapolis Colts, along with one or two other categories.
"Rotational Backups" is a category for positions where players will regularly rotate in throughout games, positions such as running back, defensive line, linebacker, etc.
"Key Backups" is reserved for positions where backup players come in and play, but not as replacements for the starters, but as additions. Positions like this would be wide receiver, defensive back, etc.
"Backups" are players who will likely make the team and back up the starters, only getting most of their snaps due to injury.
"Special Teams" includes players who will be battling for roster spots, and will likely only be playing on special-teams units if they even make the team.
With that in mind, let's dig in.
