RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
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.
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.
