Trey Sermon, RB

Last season, the Colts kept three running backs after their initial, monstrous roster cutdown. If they do the same thing this year, the Colts would be in line to keep Jonathan Taylor, Evan Hull and Tyler Goodson. At least, those are the three which are currently projected as the top three on Indy's depth chart.

In 2023, Trey Sermon got some opportunities with this Colts offense due to injuries ahead of him. He was active for 14 games and carried the ball 35 times for 160 yards, which was good for a healthy 4.6 average.

Coming out of Ohio State three years ago, Sermon was looked at as a guy who could potentially become a high-level starter in this league. After all, he was a third-round pick by the 49ers. Now, he could be without a job.

Anthony Gould, WR

Last year, the Colts initially kept four wide receivers and five tight ends. Of course, things can and will change after the very first cut. However, let's say the Colts only choose to keep five wide receivers. Who is the odd man out? As it stands, it'd be either veteran Ashton Dulin or fifth-round pick Anthony Gould.

It would seem strange for a fifth-round pick to get cut before he even has a shot to impress on an NFL field for the first time, but stranger things have happened in this league. Dulin is, at least, a guy the Colts have trusted for several years now.
