7. Clayton Geathers, Safety
As the projected new starter alongside veteran Mike Adams at safety, it’ll be interesting to evaluate promising 2nd-year pro Clayton Geathers‘ progression from his rookie season–particularly in coverage.
Training camp isn’t necessarily the best fit for Geathers’ hard-hitting, physical style, as the Colts coaches don’t want to see teammates get hurt, thus limiting overall contact.
However, Geathers’ Achilles heel at starting safety will likely be his coverage ability. Although better than advertised this past season, Geathers will want to demonstrate that he has the wherewithal to hold his own against opposing receivers when isolated in coverage during training camp.
