Colts 2014 Positional Review: Cornerbacks
By Evan Reller
The Indianapolis Colts finished the season 11-5 and made it all the way to the AFC Championship game. We take a look at each position and break down the units performance over the past season. Pro Football Focus (PFF) provides the grades, Football Outsiders DVOA (value per play) and DYAR (total value).
The Colts had a good season from the cornerbacks but most of that was due to one player: Vontae Davis. Davis effectively shut down half the field this season, and the Colts featured the 10th best passing defense by DVOA in the league.
The rest of the corners struggled at times but the position wasn’t the liability it has been in the past few seasons. It is one of the few spots where the Colts don’t have a serious need, but could rather look to upgrade in the future. The biggest win was merely staying healthy for the entire season.
The Colts could use depth at corner heading into 2015. They are an injury away from serious issues in the secondary.
