Indianapolis Colts 53-man roster projection after win against Vikings
By Mike Luciano
Julian Blackmon, Khari Willis, Sean Davis, Shawn Davis, George Odum
Go ahead and bet the house on Blackmon and Willis making the roster, as they are both projected starters. While Indy will have several players fighting for space as a backup, both of their phonetically similar backups will likely have spots on this roster.
The elder Davis has proven enough after a rocky start to his career in Pittsburgh and Washington, while the younger Davis was picked in the fifth round due to his versatility and how he might fit in Matt Eberflus’ scheme.
Odum is an All-Pro thanks to his contributions as a special teams player, so his spot on this roster is locked in.
Rodrigo Blankenship, Rigoberto Sanchez, Luke Rhodes
The only somewhat surprising thing here is Blankenship winning the kicker competition against Eddy Pineiro. Rhodes appears to have the long snapper job locked in, and Sanchez will continue to show that he is one of the best punters in the game.
