Looking at the 'final' roster

12 Andrew Luck, 5 Drew Stanton, 8 Chandler Harnish
ColtPlay says: A Couldn`t be happier. All three looked better than I expected in the preseason, and Luck and Harnish should be together in town for at least a decade.

31 Donald Brown, 26 Mewelde Moore, 33 Vick Ballard, 34 Delone Carter

ColtPlay says: C Uh oh, a collection of role players! Of course, that can work ... but only if the passing attack is fearsome. We

87 Reggie Wayne, 17 Austin Collie, 11 Donnie Avery, 13 TY Hilton, 15 LaVon Brazill, 7 Kris Adams
ColtPlay says: C+ A lot of talent, but the veterans are brittle and the youngsters are inexperienced. Of course, none of this applies to Reggie, who will continue to be awesome.

80 Coby Fleener, 83 Dwayne Allen, 46 Dominique Jones
ColtPlay says: C+ A treasure trove of young (and unproven) talent. Keep an eye on Jones, whose versatility and big-play ability are enticing.

74 Anthony Castonzo, 69 Winston Justice, 72 Jeff Linkenbach, 60 Mike Person
ColtPlay says: C+ I like the starters, but worry about the depth. Linkenbach is the fill-in guy at every position except center, but that doesn`t mean he`s good at it. Person has skills, but is raw, and, by the standards of his position, tiny.

76 Joe Reitz, 75 Mike McGlynn, 73 Seth Olsen

ColtPlay says: D- A huge weakness: Two guys who should be backups and one who shouldn`t be in the league. 

66 Samson Satele, 62 AQ Shipley
ColtPlay says: C Pretty good starter, pretty good backup.

90 Cory Redding, 95 Fili Moala, 94 Drake Nevis, 91 Ricardo Mathews
ColtPlay says: C+ I`m surprised Mathews made the team, but the top three appear to be NFL quality.

99 Antonio Johnson, 68 Martin Tevaseu

ColtPlay says: D- (maybe F) I like Mookie, but he`s not a starting NFL nose tackle, and Tevaseu hardly inspires me. But they just have to hold up for six games until Chapman is ready.

93 Dwight Freeney, 98 Robert Mathis, 92 Jerry Hughes,
97 Mario Addison, 55 Justin Hickman

ColtPlay says: Freeney and Mathis are too good not to find a way to the QB, and the kids have shown some flair.

51 Pat Angerer, 53 Kavell Conner, 50 Jerrell Freeman, 45 Moise Fokou, 54 Mario Harvey
ColtPlay says: Until Angerer comes back, this is an iffy spot. 

25 Jerraud Powers, 23 Vontae Davis,21 Justin King, 20 Cassius Vaughn, 40 Josh Gordy
ColtPlay says: Wholesale changes looks like it means marked improvement.

41 Antoine Bethea, 28 Tom Zbikowski, 35 Joe Lefeged, 38 Sergio Brown

ColtPlay says: Not a position I`m worried about, keep an eye on Brown

4 Adam Vinatieri
ColtPlay says: It`ll be fun to watch the retirement tour.

1 Pat McAfee
ColtPlay says: The new face of the Colts, and that`s a good thing.

45 Matt Overton

ColtPlay says: Sure it`s a gamble, but do you really think this is a Super Bowl team?
