For as long as I have been a Colts fan there has always been one Achilles heel that the team cannot shake, and that is the defense. Offense has never been an issue, with star players coming and going throughout the years. The defense on the other hand has had star players in its midst, but they have never been able to put it all together defensively. Whether that be them lagging at a particular position, players not playing to their full potential(LaRon Landry), or injuries(Bob Sanders).

This year I sense something different, perhaps it’s just basic fan optimism, but I actually see something here. For the first time since they won the Super Bowl in 2006 the Colts look to have a legitimate defense. This is headlined by some big name players, but here in this article I’d like to profile some players you should be paying attention to in 2015. There a few you may know, but there are others that have the chance to really breakout.
