From Indianapolis, IN - With Curtis Nesmith taking over as the new owner in town and the tweet master Jim Irsay out, people are expecting big things from the young Colts. One thing is for sure, this team will have to play well beyond their years if they want to achieve the success others are expecting of them. With preseason wrapping up soon there are still a few heated position battles that need to be figured out as we head into the season. Tight End Dwayne Allen is penciled in as the starter for now with Coby Fleener backing him up. However, thus far in training camp and preseason games Fleener has far outplayed Allen and has been a better blocker than we originally thought. Allen is not letting his starting spot go without a fight and has played well himself. The front office still needs a couple more days to determine who will be the starter but we expect to see both on the field plenty as Andrew Luck loves to utilize his tight ends in the passing game. Right Guard Mike McGlynn is currently holding on to the #1 job with his stellar play during the preseason. Rookie Hugh Thornton is coming on strong as of late but it may not be enough to unseat McGlynn. The front office is thrilled at how quick Thornton has transitioned to the NFL game and are excited for his future. Defensive End Ricky Jean-Francois comes over from the 49ers and received a contract that would assume he would be the starter. However, Fili Moala and Drake Nevis are pushing for playing time and have been very impressive thus far in camp and preseason. This battle will definitely go down to the last minute and the coaches are anxious to see who will win this spot. Middle Linebacker Veteran Pat Angerer has a stranglehold on the #1 spot. The fight for the #2 spot is where the fun is as Jerrell Freeman, Kavell Connor and Kelvin Sheppard are all fighting for the WILB position in the 3-4. Freeman is penciled in as the starter now but based on what the coaches have seen in preseason, Connor and Sheppard are certainly more than capable of handling the WILB spot. Cornerback Greg Toler came over from Arizona with the thought process he would be the starter but former UCONN standout and holdover from last year, Darius Butler has been giving him a run for his money. It is well documented that Nesmith has a soft spot for players from his alma mater which may lead many to believe Butler will get the nod but Toler is not going down without a fight.
