"7. Vontae Davis, Indianapolis Colts“The Colts have made it easy for offenses to avoid Davis for stretches in recent years, but he is a ruthless, physical playmaker when tested. His touchdown-free 2014 was a well-deserved pelt for the mantle, even if he came back to Earth last year, and the addition of Patrick Robinson, who is coming off a strong season in San Diego, should provide some support as Davis continues to take on the top assignments.”"
Since being traded to the Colts in 2012, Davis has developed into a 2x Pro Bowler and All-Pro under defensive minded head coach Chuck Pagano‘s tutelage.
The 8-year veteran had a very good, but not great season last year–coming off of a 2014 campaign in which he was arguably the best cover cornerback in football.
Some of that could be attributed to injuries, as Davis underwent foot surgery earlier this offseason. However, he allowed 7 touchdowns in coverage last year, having not allowed a single touchdown just a season prior.
That being said, Davis started in all 16 games for the Colts and was still the team’s top cornerback, as well as one of the better players at his position in the entire NFL–finishing the season with 48 tackles and 4 interceptions.
The 28 year old will hope that he can regain his prior 2014 form this upcoming season, where he was not just a very good cornerback, but ultimately a great one however.
