Projecting the Colts’ depth chart after NFL Draft

The Colts came out of the NFL Draft with eight new players. That roster will balloon to 90 men this summer before trimming down to 53 by September. Jobs will be up in the air, for rookies and veterans alike.

Some positions are settled and others are up in the air. Here’s a look at where each position group stands after the draft:

After 14 seasons with the Falcons, QB Matt Ryan is headed to Indianapolis.


Starter: Matt Ryan

Backup: Sam Ehlinger

Other depth: Jack Coan*, James Morgan

*Denotes rookies

Analysis: The Colts did not select a quarterback in this draft. It wasn’t a surprise, as it was widely considered a weak class, and Matt Ryan is locked in financially to start for at least the next two seasons, and he and the franchise would like for it to be even more than that.
