With training camp starting shortly for the Indianapolis Colts, which players on the bubble are most likely to make the roster?
Every year, the Indianapolis Colts seem to find a hidden gem in training camp. With training camp beginning on July 27, it’s about time to start looking for these hidden gems. This year should prove to be interesting with a number of undrafted signings and veterans trying to make the Colts roster.
Last season, Indianapolis did not have an undrafted free agent on their roster to begin the season. Before last year, Indy was on a streak of 22 consecutive seasons where an undrafted free agent made the roster.
The Colts signed nineteen undrafted free agents this offseason, I would expect some of them to make the roster this season. Let’s to a look at 3 players who are on the bubble that will likely make the roster.
3. Linebacker and special teams option JoJo Domann will make the roster
This should come as no surprise to anyone who has followed JoJo or the Colts this offseason. Jojo Domann was listed as the most likely undrafted free agent to make the Indy’s roster. Domann played safety during his first two seasons at Nebraska but played linebacker for his last three seasons.
As far as defensive positioning, Domann will most likely be seen as a coverage linebacker in the NFL. He’s most likely a guy you wouldn’t see on the field a ton on defense next season due to Indy’s depth at linebacker or safety.
JoJo Domann could see the field often for the Colts on special teams. Domann played a lot of special teams during his time at Nebraska. The Colts also lost a few key special team players including George Odum and TJ Carrie.
JoJo Domann will be a player to watch in training camp. I expect him to make an impact on the special teams and it’s possible that he could even be used in certain defensive packages if he makes the roster.
