Default 90 man roster filled

INDIANAPOLIS – It is the first of many versions over the next four months.

The Colts have their first complete 90-man roster of the offseason, after a 10-man draft class and 10-man undrafted free agent group have been assembled.

This roster will be fluid over the next few months, before Training Camp starts in late July. Teams can maintain a 90-man roster through the entire preseason, before final cuts to 53 are due at the end of August.

Below is a breakdown of the current 90-man roster, with the second number in parenthesis indicating how many players at that position the Colts kept after their final roster cuts in September 2018:

Quarterbacks (3/2): Jacoby Brissett, Andrew Luck, Phillip Walker

Bowen’s Analysis: The draft has come and gone and Brissett is still a Colt. The full expectation is Brissett will play out the final year of his rookie contract in Indianapolis.

Running Backs (5/4): Nyheim Hines, Marlon Mack, Spencer Ware, Jordan Wilkins, Jonathan Williams

Bowen’s Analysis: The addition of Ware has upped the quality competition in this group. It will be hard to cut this group lower than 4.

Wide Receiver (13/5): Deon Cain, Parris Campbell*, Ashton Dulin*, Reece Fountain, Devin Funchess, Penny Hart*, T.Y. Hilton, Krishawn Hogan, Steve Ishmael, Marcus Johnson, Zach Pascal, Chester Rogers, Jordan Veasy

Bowen’s Analysis: Talk about some serious competition among this bunch. Do the Colts keep 5 or 6 wideouts and who will make a necessary presence on special teams?

Tight Ends (7/3): Mo Alie-Cox, Billy Brown, Jack Doyle, Eric Ebron, Hale Hentges*, Gabe Holmes, Ross Travis

Bowen’s Analysis: With no draft picks at tight end, the Colts have their 3 main returners from last season, plus the intriguing Travis coming off a torn ACL.

Offensive Linemen (15/10): C/G-Josh Andrews, OT-Jackson Barton*, C/G-Evan Boehm, T-Anthony Castonzo, G/T-Le’Raven Clark, T-Antonio Garcia, OG-Mark Glowinski, T/G-Joe Haeg, C-Ryan Kelly, G-Quenton Nelson, C/G-Javon Patterson*, G-William Poehls, G/T-Braden Smith, T-J’Marcus Webb, T-De’Ondre Wesley

Bowen’s Analysis: Besides Matt Slauson, this group returns everyone from last season and has added a pair of seventh-round picks in Barton and Patterson.

Defensive Linemen (15/10): DT/DE-Denico Autry, DE-Gerri Green*, DT/DE-Margus Hunt, DE-Justin Houston, DE-Jegs Jegede*, DT/DE-Tyquan Lewis, DE-Al-Quadin Muhammad, DT-Johnny Robinson*, DE-Carroll Phillips, DE-Jabaal Sheard, DT-Sterling Shippy*, DT-Grover Stewart, DT-Jordan Thompson*, DE-Kemoko Turay, DT-Jihad Ward

Bowen’s Analysis: While the interior of this group lacks a true wide body, besides Stewart, this is still a pretty deep position group. Green was the lone draft pick for this bunch. With the Colts having more quality bodies at linebacker this year, the D-line group might be trimmed by a number, compared to last year, come final cuts.

Linebackers (10/6): Matthew Adams, Ben Banogu*, Zaire Franklin, Darius Leonard, Skai Moore, Bobby Okereke*, EJ Speed*, Ahmad Thomas, Tre Thomas*, Anthony Walker

Bowen’s Analysis: You have 7 Chris Ballard draft picks among this group. Special teams needs and having a guy like Banogu who can play some defensive end is a reason why this group could rise to 7 LBs on the final roster. That’s a number Ballard mentioned after the draft.

Cornerbacks (11/6): Jalen Collins, Pierre Desir, Nate Hairston, D.J. Killings, Chris Milton, Kenny Moore, Jamal Peters*, Shakai Taylor*, Marvell Tell*, Quincy Wilson, Rock Ya-Sin*

Bowen’s Analysis: This is another group that sees strong retention from 2018, plus some bolstering via the draft and undrafted class. Some notable names are going to be fighting for a roster spot.

Safeties (7/4): Matthias Farley, Clayton Geathers, Malik Hooker, Derrick Kindred, Roland Milligan, George Odum, Khari Willis*

Bowen’s Analysis: One would think this group keeps at least 4 names. With Hooker and Geathers healthy this offseason, it might be a bit harder for some of the depth guys to make a really strong impression, as opposed to opportunities in previous offseasons.

Specialists (4/3): K-Cole Hedlund*, LS-Luke Rhodes, P-Rigoberto Sanchez, K-Adam Vinatieri

Bowen’s Analysis: This group returns in-tact for a third straight season, with the addition of Hedlund as an extra leg to rest the 46-year-old Vinny during the offseason.

Still a lot of unproven but I feel better about the WR position this year. A lot of competition.

It's a roster where i feel that a major injury to a key player isn't a reason to suddenly write off the season entirely, including Luck. The next man up is generally not a huge drop off, clearly it would then have an impact on the depth of the roster at positions 50-53.

RB, Mack is top dog, but Ware, Wilkins and Hines although not likely to strike fear into anyone is something we could survive with.

WR, Hilton going down would not be good, but there is certainly growth potential among the rest of the guys. Cain, Campbell both with lots to prove, Funchess has shown to be capable if not spectacular so far, but with Luck hopefully he is going to step up his game.

TE, Doyle/Ebron, we did ok without Doyle for large parts of last year, another season under the belt for Mo Alie-Cox, and the return of Travis would be fine to go with.

OL, top dog is unquestionably Nelson, and i do think we would see a big drop off without him, but we do have some decent depth for our 6th and 7th guys in Haeg and Clark.

DL, i am not sure we really have a No. 1 guy here, but we are about 10 deep, so i wouldn't see this being a game changer.

LB's, losing Leonard, would be a major issue, but we have drafted a few guys who i would hope will generally improve the linebacker play, so the overall impact would be bad, but i think our play will be significantly improved from last year, so the quality would be similar to last year.

CB's, i am not sure who is really our No. 1 guy, Desir, Moore or Wilson, we now have Ya-Sin and hopefully Collins, so i think we wouldn't be significantly worse.

S, Hooker, we have some depth here, but i think he is a bigger player than many think he was last year. We would have Farley back who has seen starting action and played ok, but his skill set is not covering the back end, he is better suited covering for Geathers.

Very true... but I feel that position stuck out the most in the loss to the Chiefs.. the defense did an admirable job at slowing them down. Just our offense sputtered too much.

The fascinating thing will be how the 90 man roster is unfilled and then supplemented further.

Bored so I'm looking at the roster and wondering who is a long shot who actually might make some noise, and not the rookies. I will be following Antonio Garcia, Offensive Tackle. Signed a reserve/future contract. Kind of guy Ballard loves physically. Played at Troy so there is that. Patriots jumped 11 positions to take him in 2017 in the third round. Had blood clots in lung and lost entire first year. Patriots cut him, Jets picked him up cut him and we picked him up. If he is ok from a lung standpoint (so far so good) he has long arms, quick feet and is athletic. It's a long shot but I'm hoping that with coaching he could be something special.

I'll go with the same position, but I'll go with Jackson Barton...I keep wanna call him Barrett Jackson...what's up with that?
