Welcome to the fourth installment of the series that is meant to bring awareness to some players the Colts should be looking at in the upcoming draft.
Currently, the Colts’ cornerbacks are: Vontae Davis, Greg Toler, Darius Butler, Josh Gordy, Cassius Vaughn, Sheldon Price and Marcus Burley.
Davis is the leader of this core and is a free agent. Although it seems some fans aren’t sold on him, a lot of fans would argue that he is a great number one corner for this team and should absolutely be re-signed.
Toler was supposed to be one of the big offseason signings in 2013, but his injury-riddled past followed him to Indianapolis and stopped him from being much of a factor. However, Toler is a solid corner when he is healthy.
Vaughn and Gordy are both free agents – unrestricted and restricted, respectively – and could very well be playing for other teams next year. Both played well this season and showed they can be serviceable corners.
Furthermore, the Colts will definitely be looking at adding a corner or two this offseason – from both the draft and free agency – due to the possibility of losing their own guys and lack of stability at the position.
This draft has its fair share of great prospects at the position, but the depth isn’t the best and teams will have to draft the good ones early.
Disclaimer: I did not create, nor do I own the highlight videos. I simply tried to find the best video to showcase the skills of these young players. If the selected music is not to your taste, I suggest muting the video and playing some of your own music. Also, finding highlight videos of corners isn’t as easy compared to finding them for wide receivers. Some of these will be highlights from just one game, but hopefully you can get the feel for the player from the game.
