2. Rookies will run the Colts in 2023

If there's one thing this Colts team has, it's youth. From the youngest starting quarterback to sixth-round pick Titus Leo, Indianapolis has had young players shine in the preseason.

The Colts have given ample playing time to their 2023 signees aside from Anthony Richardson. Rookies such as Julius Brents and Evan Hull have seen plenty of snaps this preseason. With depth questions at cornerback and running back, the rookies have had to step up to veterans every snap and make the most of their opportunities.

Titus Leo, an undersized defensive end from Wagner University, has impressed many with his speed and playmaking ability. Leo finished with six total tackles, one sack, and one pass defended against Chicago.

Fellow rookie teammate Adetomiwa Adebawore showed his force on the defensive line as him and Leo finished off a sack against the Bears last Saturday. Indy’s 2023 Draft class is very talented, and it’s becoming clear that they will contribute early.
