1. Wide receiver Ashton Dulin

For some players, stats don't show the story. Ashton Dulin is one of those players. The four-year veteran had a career high in receiving yards last season, finishing with 207 yards on the year. Dulin put up 125 of those yards in the first two games of the season, where he was able to showcase his true ability with the ball.

Unfortunately for Dulin, a foot injury plagued his season, placing him on the IR for four weeks. After returning from injury, the Colts had fired Frank Reich, hired Jeff Saturday, switched QBs multiple times, and won only one game. It wasn't the ideal situation for Dulin.

Fortunately, new head coach Shane Steichen values speed, and Dulin has a lot of it. The speedy receiver clocked one of the fastest sprint times in the league two years ago at 22.48 MPH. With that speed, Dulin can be a big-time weapon for a Colts offense that lacked explosiveness last season.

Expect Dulin to get many more opportunities with the ball this season, as his play-making ability could provide great depth to a Colts offense that really needs to turn things around.
