The Indianapolis Colts still have several holes to fill on their roster. The team brought in several undrafted rookies and many of them stand a good chance to make the final roster for the 2012. Listed below are five players who could challenge for a roster spot in 2012.
Anunoby is a big player that could challenge at the nose tackle position. If fifth round draft choice Josh Chapman isn’t ready to begin the season, Anunoby could push to make the roster. Brandon McKinney is the only player currently on the roster who has experience at the nose tackle position. At six-feet-four inches and 324 pounds, Anunoby is a big body at the position.
Pellerin was rated highly entering the draft and went undrafted. He was originally expected to be a cornerback, but is being listed by the team as a safety. Indianapolis is lacking depth at both positions and could use young talent to develop. I think Pellerin is the kind of player that could challenge for a roster spot.
Baker is a talented young player and could develop into a strong offensive tackle. The team has little depth on the offensive line and could choose to keep Baker to develop into a future right tackle. I think he has a good chance to make the final roster.
Sambrano is included on the list after a strong performance at the first rookie mini-camp. He developed a strong connection with quarterback Andrew Luck and has a leg up on other receivers already. Sambrano has the size and speed that offensive coordinator Bruce Arians likes. Sambrano will likely have to beat out rookie Lavon Brazill or Donnie Avery to make the team though.
