Burning Questions in the Defensive Backfield prior to Training Camp

Posted Jul 24, 2013

Intro: Colts.com is wrapping up a series profiling the burning questions at each position group heading into training camp. Today’s installment comes in the defensive backfield.

INDIANAPOLIS – The Colts secondary is expected to carry a trio of new starters with them into the 2013 season.

Veteran safety Antoine Bethea is the mainstay at the backend of the Colts defense and he will be flanked by some talented additions.

How does the secondary look heading into the 2013 training camp…


IS LARON LANDRY READY TO BE A “GAME CHANGER” IN THE COLTS SECONDARY?: Colts head coach Chuck Pagano and general manager Ryan Grigson do not hesitate when describing LaRon Landry’s impact.

Landry wasted no time showcasing his abilities during the Colts three-day minicamp in mid-June.

The Colts are getting a 220-pound hard-hitting safety that will pair with a fellow Pro Bowler in Antoine Bethea to form one of the top safety duos in the league.

As training camp approaches in Anderson, Landry will be one of many Colts counting down the days until the pads can be strapped on.


CAN GREG TOLER TURN A STRONG OFFSEASON INTO THE FALL?:
During OTAs and minicamp, there was No. 28 routinely appearing on pass breakups and the occasional interception.

Toler joins the Colts after four seasons with the Arizona Cardinals and his tremendous ball-hawking skills are aided by the corner’s wingspan.


Colts defensive backs coach Mike Gilhamer calls Toler a “cheetah” with his striking ability.

Safe to say, Toler turned some heads during the offseason and the Colts could have a pretty formidable cornerback duo thanks to…


DOES VONTAE DAVIS MAKE THE LEAP TO ACHIEVE “GREATNESS”?:
Davis can be plugged in as the Colts 2013 second round draft pick and when looking at it in those terms, the Colts got a steal when they acquired the cornerback last August.

Battling injuries last season, Davis played his best football of the 2012 season near the end of the year with a two-interception performance in the Colts regular season finale.

The Colts will count on Davis to shut down some of the game’s premier receivers this season thanks a schedule filled with a bevy of top level air attacks.

Grigson knew he was making a big splash when he traded for Davis last season and he’s expecting “greatness” for the five-year cornerback this season.


WHAT DOES THE DEPTH LOOK LIKE IN THE ENTIRE SECONDARY?:
From a starting standpoint, the four names mentioned above gives the Colts a very impressive secondary.

However, just like last year, the Colts know that the depth will be vital as the NFL continues to grow as a passing league.

The safety position has some unknowns behind the starters but the cornerback position includes Darius Butler (four starts) and Cassius Vaughn (11 starts) who saw significant playing time last season in Indianapolis.

No matter who the Colts run out in the backend of the secondary, creating turnovers will be near the top of the priority list.
