THE SKINNY:

Similar to at wide receiver, the Indy coaching staff will have plenty of tough choices to make at cornerback entering the regular season.

While the team’s top two corners, Pierre Desir and Kenny Moore II, are good to go with new contracts signed this offseason, and the Colts selected Rock Ya-Sin out of Temple with the 34th-overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft, there will be plenty of competition the rest of the way between the likes of Jalen Collins, Nate Hairston, Chris Milton, fifth-round pick Marvell Tell III, and Quincy Wilson, as well as undrafted rookie Shakial Taylor.

And, just like at wide receiver (and a few other spots), the final decision-making process at cornerback beyond the first few spots could very come down to which guys contribute better in various special teams roles. This should prove to create quite an entertaining battle at camp and in preseason games.
