Colts: Defensive Position-by-Position Breakdown and Depth Chart Analysis
AJ Mast/Associated Press

The Indianapolis Colts may have an exciting offense heading into the 2014 season, but if their defense plays like it did last year, they're going to have some work to do.

Last season, the Colts allowed 357.1 yards and 21 points per game, ranking 20th and ninth, respectively. Those numbers aren't terrible, but they could have been better. Things will be harder considering the fact that Robert Mathis, who was responsible for the majority of pressure on opposing quarterbacks, has been suspended for the first four games.

The secondary is also going to be in question due to the departure of Antoine Bethea and the inability of several players to stay healthy. However, it isn't all bad, as the Colts signed players like Arthur Jones and D'Qwell Jackson to add some much-needed help.

With that being said, here is their current depth chart for the entire defense. The depth chart isn't where players stand now, but instead where they'll likely be by the time the season begins. There are currently more than a few undrafted free agents and other players near the bottom of the depth chart, but only players who have a legitimate shot to make the roster will be included.
