RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2015

Subscribe now to see our 2015 outlook.

2014

Werner is the leading candidate to start at linebacker when Robert Mathis misses four games for failing the league's drug policy. Werner was a disappointment last season as the first-round draft pick had a hard time cracking the lineup in his rookie year and had just 18 tackles and 2.5 sacks. The Colts will need him to improve as a pass rusher with Mathis out.

2013

Werner, the Colts' first-round draft pick in 2013 out of Florida State, will work at outside linebacker. He may not start immediately, but he will be groomed to fit in the 3-4 defense the Colts installed prior to 2012.
