Castonzo is a fantastic left tackle and easily the best player on the line. Castonzo was excellent in pass protection, giving up just two sacks all season long. He was a big of a mixed bag in terms of run blocking but at times is an absolute road grater and can simply clear space at will.
Castonzo also had one of the best celebration dances after a touchdown pass from Luck this season as well.
Its interesting that Castonzo was a Bill Polian pick and Ryan Grigson, a former offensive lineman, hasn’t been able to find quality blockers.
PFF didn’t like his abilities as a run blocker, but watching film shows a very solid player in that regard.
Castonzo is heading into the last year of his contract. There’s no reason the Colts wouldn’t re-sign him following next season.
Castonzo will likely be the best player on the offensive line again and will continue to keep Luck’s blindside clean.
