The Colts are in serious need of help in the secondary. Last season the Colts pass defense was abysmal, letting up nearly 250 passing yards per game. Kayvon Webster will not be the guy to lead the league in interceptions or passes defended, but he would be a great asset on a young defense.
Webster would be the number one corner in Indy right away. At 5″11, 195 lbs. Webster has the size to matchup with the outside receiver, and the speed to follow slot receivers through the middle. He has shown he has the ability to lock down a team’s best receiver, as you can see in this highlight tape from his time with Broncos.
As of right now the Colts are lacking the lockdown corner that you can throw on a teams best receiver. Webster could be that guy for Reich and Eberflus. In a division with DeAndre Hopkins, the Colts are going to need a tough, physical corner to matchup with him and other receivers in the AFC South.
Webster has not hinted at where he would like to sign, but I would assume money is going to play a big role in his decision. Coming off his rookie deal, Webster is looking to cash in on his first big NFL pay day. Whatever amount of money he is looking for, Ballard can give to him, which I would not mind. Webster will be 28 in February, and still has not hit his full potential. If the Colts lock him up for 3-4 years, he would play a big role in the rebuild process in Indy. If Webster is open to Indy’s situation, I hope Ballard will do whatever he can to sign him.
