With training camp around the corner, Colts fans need to keep an eye on these young studs.
The Indianapolis Colts have yet to see any starters opt out of the 2020 season, though linebacker Skai Moore informed the team on Tuesday that he’d be sitting next year out.
That means Philip Rivers will be getting to work with all of the usual Colts starters plus the impressive incoming rookie class that’s ready to create some more competition in training camp. Speaking of that, the practices are soon to be underway once the COVID-19 safety protocols are met.
Indy fans know the team’s draft picks are ready to turn heads on the coaching staff, but what about the undrafted crop? Don’t forget the Colts made some smart pickups shortly after the draft, so here’s who to look out for on that front.
3. Carter O’Donnell
The Colts signed O’Donnell after he was taken in the third round of the CFL draft.
The Colts have arguably the best offensive line in football, and they just added one of the most promising young prospects who could be a big part of their future. Carter O’Donnell was signed as a UDFA after being selected in the third round of the Canadian Football League draft.
The Calgary, Alberta native was invited to the East-West Shrine Bowl as one of the two U Sports (highest level of amateur play of Canadian football) representatives. He played for the Alberta Golden Bears from 2016-2019 and impressed scouts at the Shrine Bowl. He stands at 6-foot-5 and 313 pounds and could potentially play both tackle and guard.
There’s a slim chance he does serious damage and cracks the starting lineup, but if someone goes down with an injury, don’t be surprised if he gets reps given his versatility and skill set.
