The Colts have built an organization that has competition at every position. Because of that, this will be the hardest team to make in the last several years.
Competition breeds success. That moniker is certainly true in the NFL where there is competition for every position on every team in the league. The competition brings out the best in players and allows teams to have the best roster they can have.
The Colts are no different. They have worked hard over the last few years to build a team that is extremely competitive and deep. Credit Chris Ballard, who had his work cut out for him when he was hired as GM a few years ago in 2017. He had done a great job.
Because of his efforts, this Colts team will be the hardest team to make in the last several years. There are backups who are fighting for their NFL lives on this roster. The backups will have to work hard to show that they are deserving of a contract with the team.
The starters are almost all solidified. A few positions have a chance to change, but most of them are already locked in. That means the majority of the training camp battles will be for backup spots. A lot of players are going to have to play the best football of their career.
All of this means a better product out there for the fans and a better chance to win a championship. That is the ultimate goal for this organization. They can get there by keeping this kind of culture going for years to come.
